THIS JUST IN: Thing One & Thing Two

Here’s jubilant news from the Prospect Park Zoo:
Baboon baby birth, and not just one, but two!
They’ve each got a mommy, both rambunctious males,
So feisty they’ve got to be held by their tails.

So while the boys wrassle and play baboon games,
The Zoo asks the public to help give them names.
At the moment, they just call the kids “one” and “two,”
But that’s no good, peeps, so you know what to do.

One Size Fits (Almost) All

Says Andrea K.: “Here are some pictures of my cute new kitten named Mojo. He was so tired from playing all day that he found a great spot to take a nap, under my boyfriend’s hat.”

C.O. Dance Paaaaar-tay!

Oh, come on — you guys weren’t using those brain cells, anyway; it’s Friday. Now get up out of those chairs and dance, dance, dance!

Thank you, butterflize76!

Tales from the Drypt

(cont’d from p. 47) against the smooth, curved surface of the unfamiliar location. Abandoning the escape for the moment, Pembroke surveyed the room. He was alone, he concluded — when suddenly he felt ice-cold fingers against his skin!

Water! Pembroke’s heart thundered in his chest as he scrabbled anew at the unyielding metal walls. He’d heard of this place; a chamber of horrors so ghastly, it was spoken of only in awestruck whispers — when spoken of at all.

A door opened and he went still. One of the dungeon acolytes entered, cradling a bottle of amber liquid. At that instant, Pembroke knew what was in store. It would be the worst agony anyone could bear — and live to tell of it. Its name was enough to chill his blood and send daggers of fire up his spine. This was… bathtime.

Just Your Typical First Date Small Talk

“… oh, I totally agree: So-called ‘modern classical’ music is overrated. How about a kiss? I mean, sometimes I have to turn off the TV and the cell phone and just, you know, be. You wanna kiss? Running my own business, maybe traveling; that’s where I see myself in five years. So are we gonna kiss or what?”

You remember Marnie, don’t you?

Let’s Go to the Hop!

There’s a big hop going on in the gymnasium, but it’s not what you think. It’s highlights from this year’s Danish Rabbit Show Jumping Competition, in which rabbit owners all over Denmark vie to see who can make the best “chik, chik, chik” noises — oh, and also get their rabbits to jump over stuff.

I have just one word for you, Gwyn R.: Boiinnnggg!

We Haven’t Painted Them Yet

Look what Esther B. spotted: “This is the new litter of Sadie the Dalmatian. She birthed eight puppies, six boys and two girls. The proud mommies, Kathy and Jamie, are very happy to have these adorable puppies in their home. And yes, a boy and girl will be named Pongo and Perdita.”

From The Cute Farmer’s Almanac

As the days get shorter, and the carefree days of summer yield to earnest fall, it’s time to put up a supply of kittens to see you through the cold winter months ahead. When selecting a storage jar for your kitties, make sure it’s not too small.

The white ones are my favorite, Beverly A.
