A Breakfast Lament

“I’m a big girl now,” said Princess, “and I’m tired of Cocoa Puffs”
“I want to eat what you eat, Mom, with fruits and nuts and stuffs.”
So Mom brought down the Muselix, and she poured some in a bowl,
And Princess set herself upon her wise and womanly goal.

The oats were bland, the nuts were hard, the fiber chafed her teef.
She thought, “if this is grown-up food, adulthood must be grief.”
But persevered she through the meal, then stared with forlorn eyes,
“I ate a whole bowl of this stuff, and there’s no plastic prize?

Bunny Thrill-laaaaaah!

From Flickr user Yiie, here’s “Otis (Dutch rabbit, now 11 months old) sleeping. She had her paws up and was moving them slowly, almost looked like she was dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller song.”

Behold, the Power of Chocolate

According to science, chocolate contains potent neurotransmitters that can elevate one’s mood. But shape it like an Easter egg, wrap it in foil, and introduce it to a pair of kittens, and it can drive them crazy without their even eating it.

Hello, I’m Your Avon Representative…

“I was passing through the neighborhood, and… Well, I was kind of near your neighborhood… All right, to be totally honest, I was on the interstate three miles away with the windows rolled up, but all the same I thought you might be interested in our line of fine fragrances, maybe get you a deal on the bulk rate.”

The Strong, Silent, Ceramic Type

Y’know, ain’t nothing better in life than that one true friend. Like me and Hubie here. He don’t talk much, but he’s always here for me. Sometimes we just sit here for hours, watchin’ time go by. Got nothin’ to say, got nothin’ really needs sayin’. He knows what I’m thinkin’, an’ I know what he’s thinkin’. We’re tight like that.

Consternation and Befuddlement!

After a relaxing brandy in the members’ lounge, Lord Mumphrey left the exclusive Cat and Mouse Club for his rendezvous with Miss Penelope Hoosterwooster.

Emerging into the gaslit evening, it dawned on him that the check clerk had given him the wrong hat. “This can only mean,” he mused, “that somewhere, a mouse is attempting to hail a carriage from within the confines of a size seven bowler.”

The Tale of Piwi the Kiwi

This is too cool for jokes, so we’ll let the YouTube notes tell the story:

Wildlife experts found Piwi and transported him to a wildlife park to mend his broken leg. The vets decided to use a treadmill to help with Piwi’s recovery. At first, Piwi wasn’t too thrilled to be on the treadmill, but the vets have said that his workout has drastically improved his muscle tone and great chance of surviving out in the wild again.
