And Now the News for Chinchillas

“Good evening. Our top story tonight: Whirlotronics has announced a factory recall of the series XL-3400 running wheel due to a tendency to break loose at high speeds. The flaw was first discovered when Albuquerque chinchilla Ken Fuzzy scampered furiously for three hours before realizing he was in Arizona.”

“My chinchilla likes to watch TV,” says Emily X.



  1. All the news that’s fit to print er… Announce.

  2. When’s the News for Gibbons?

  3. This isn’t like Fox News is it?

  4. Cute! And obviously this chinchilla is not far-sighted like yours truly.

  5. The hovertext made me snort Coke Zero out of my nose.

  6. “fox” news should be kept far away from little chinchilla.

  7. Good evening, and here is the news for parrots.

    No parrots were involved in an accident on the M-1 today when a Lorry carrying High-octane fuel was in collison with a bollard. That’s a BOLLARD and *NOT* a PARROT. A spokesman for parrots said he was glad no parrots were involved. The Minister of Technology today met the three Russian leaders to discuss a 4 million pound airliner deal….None of them went in the cage, or swung on the little wooden trapeze or ate any of the nice millet seed. Yum, Yum.

  8. In between the news for humans and the news for wombats.

  9. I think TV Boy is afraid that the chinchilla will take over his job delivering news for hoomins.

    Personally, I’d prefer watching the chinchilla.

  10. I was sort of waiting for someone to reference this. 🙂

  11. My chinchilla watches TV too! Animal Planet and strangely, infomercials, are his fav.

  12. Does this have anything to do with Norwegian Blue Parrots pining for the fjords?

  13. I knew I shoulda taken that left turn at Albuquerque!

  14. Mine watch tv too! 😉 Mom sometimes put TV on just for her 😉

  15. Smartypants says:

    That settles it, we def. need more Chinchilla pix. They are chin-charming! This one is chin-chillin’ in front of the TV! (I could go on all day…)

  16. No. It has to do with “A Tale of Two Cities” for parrots, adapted by Joey Boy.

  17. Again, NTMTOM, you have such a unique voice. Knew it was you. Hovertext closed the deal.
