Friday Haiku Too: Badda-Beep, Badda-Boop

Joey Tomato
Loves to drink water anytime
Named for a gangsta?

“He will eat tomatoes and really any kind of people food he can steal from us. What Joey loves most of all is water. When he was a kitten, he didn’t want to drink from his bowl, so I grabbed the squirt bottle I originally bought to punish him for going on counters. Well, he latched on and loved it so much it stuck with him. He was recently in the hospital for a week, diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis. We were so glad to get him home and back to his normal self!” -Anonymous Cuteporter.

Friday Haiku By U

“Found this little guy-
floating in the pool. I just-
-had to rescue him!”

Submission (and text with just a minor edit) from Amber B.

And Now, Back To the Countdown

“At number 20, we’ve got the debut release from the Proshest Porkster around. This little dude’s got the wheels to roll alllll the way to Numero Uno. Rockin’ that gospel thing, here’s Chris P. Bacon!

Yo, Joey. How YOU Doin’?

Wouldn’t you like to be a Friend to Joey? Adam Cox of Wakaleo Animal Channel sent these photos and video in, and explains, “I recently took a trip to North Queensland, Australia because I heard they had some rare species in care. These are Tree Kangaroo Joeys! These guys are super elusive in the wild and very hard to find anywhere else so I had to go and see them for myself. Their caretaker Margit is an adorable woman who’s passion in life is animals. The 2 animals in the video have had a rough start in life losing their mothers but Margit is intent on getting them healthy and ready for the wild.”

Poll: OMG Donkeys!1!!11!!1?

IMG_1167 (1)This shot does kinda remind you of a OMGPonies!1!!11!!1 photo, right? That leads to this question: are they as prosh as Ponies? Let’s take a poll, shall we?

“I took this photo last September during a 200-mile bike ride around Vermont & New York. We shot across the road as soon as we saw the miniature donkehs in their little pasture. What’s better than a bebeh miniature donkeh?” -Courtney B.

Springtime Can WAIT

As far as (OMGPONIES!!1!1!1) Stetson is concerned, winter can take all the time it WANTS!

Another gem from The TO.
