The DirecTV Guy Looks Kinda Different

Frogulence — I has it (ribbet).

I like the best (ribbet). But I also like savings the money (ribbet).


So when DirecTV tell me five months free plus mini giraffe for most premium package (ribbet)… I jump in it like lily pond (ribbet).


From sender-inner Natalie F.: “I recently was checking your site and saw a picture my dad, Barry F. had submitted several years back with my Pekingese, Puka Shu-shu and the rescued bull frog. The very day you posted this, my daughter caught a tree frog and decided to keep her as a pet. I am a photographer and had to take some quick photos of our tree frog, Princess, with a furry friend to send in for a tribute to my sweet beloved Puka!”

What Can I Say? Chicks Dig Me!

A Bicycle Built for Whoooooooo

Flickr user Adam Norwood found this owlet had taken over his bicycle! “Definitely the best excuse I’ve ever had for being late to work,” he writes.


After snapping a few pictures, Norwood left the scared little bird alone. “Sure enough,” he writes, “as soon as it started getting dark out he called (screeched, really) for his momma owl to come take care of him.”

They Grow Up So Fast, Don’t They?

One day they’re cute puppies, and the next minute, they’re fully grown.

Who Are We to Judge?

And finally in the news today, billionaire carpet-tack tycoon Berthold Q. Pootmoodler celebrated his 78th birthday. Known for his eccentricities, the spry septuagenarian attended the ceremony dressed in a custom-tailored dog suit.


Wow, the rich are different from you and I, Chief Sister Officer.

Monkey Massage

… so we’re just going to work on relaxing that scalp for a few more minutes, then it’s off to the whirlpool before the aromatherapy. Remind me again: Did you want the banana- or the coconut-scented candles?

Clunk and Dagger

Stealthily, the cunning secret agent shinnies into position.


From his vantage point, he can overhear secret conversations, read classified documents, gather vital intelligence — completely undetected.


Then suddenly, without warning — a misstep! The cunning secret agent loses his footing! In an instant, months of meticulous planning could be lost forever!


But no! All is not lost! With steely resolve, the cunning secret agent draws on his advanced ninja skills, clinging to his perch with a grip of iron…


… I said, a grip of…


With the element of surprise firmly on his side, the cunning secret agent plunges fearlessly into the enemy outpost…

C.O. Art Gallery Watch

Opening this week at SudsSpace at SOMA, San Francisco’s only art gallery and laundromat: “The Square Root of Unconsciousness,” an installation by renowned performance artist Zamboni McHitler. In the piece, which runs 14 non-consecutive hours, McHitler offers a variety of fruit to a panel of sedated cats, who then watch as the artist performs the USA PATRIOT Act via interpretive dance.

Well, it’s still better than the Thomas Kinkade retrospective, Jackal C.
