Waiting For Mr. C

[‘Dis way, when Jolly Fat Guy pops out from the chimney, I’ll be ready to pounce welcome him to our home! Wait. We don’t haz chimney. He comes through the front door then? Or maybe the back door? I feel a Stress Hairball coming on.]

“I’m an avid fan of your site, but this is my first submission. My husband Jason captured this picture of our cat Smokey sitting in our Christmas tree. His caption was ‘Maybe if I don’t move, the hoomins won’t see me.’ Definitely fits for Rule #32. Thanks, Susan L.”


Snake Charmer

Why, look who slithered out from under the Christmas Tree! “Her name is Penelope,” says Jaime M. Adds Penelope, “I’m a six month old Lesser Ghost Ball Python. My parents are insane.”

“Hey Honey, What Happened To My Favorite Christmas Ornament?”

“You mean the blue one with your initial on it? The one from your mom? We hung it in the special spot just like we do every year. Why- what happened? Is it gone?”

Another Quality Smedley Find.

Nice Tree, Mames

Maymo has himself a giant Christmas tree made of 800 plastic water bottles. All stacked up nice and neat. Given the catastrophes that follow Maymo, we can pretty well guess what happens, no?

“Hey Honey? Did You Clean Under The Chair?”

“No! Looks like we’re out of Swiffers™, so I had the Cat do it. He’s almost done- I promised him a treat BTW.”

(Forget where I saw this but I think it was Mashable. -B.)

Reindog X: Tibbs & Mudslide

“Sometimes Christmas wishes DO come true! This is my ResQte Dog Mudslide and Mister Tibbs, an extra Dark Ebony Chinchilla. They have formed a strong bond despite their species. Here they are together, reveling in the Holiday Spirit.” -Annie O.

What DO Polar Bears Dream About?

We still don’t know, but this goes to show, don’t eat pizza with anchovies after 9pm.

I’m Not Tilting- You Are

May The Derp Be With You, Chase. “This is my dog cousin, Chase (named after Dr. Chase from “House.”) My uncle says this is her “WTF” look. He says he had just gotten his iPad and she was thinking ‘WTF is that dad?’ But once she realized other people could see her through the new contraption, she wanted to show off her new toy! Is she cute enough for Cute Overload? I think yes!” -Lemlop.
