Gossip Goat

… so the Horses aren’t speaking again; Ethel made Bob sleep on the couch after she found about that filly in Philly. The chickens tell me that new rooster is strictly a cock-a-doodle-don’t, if you catch my drift. And Mrs. Pig won’t let her youngest Stanley out of the house ever since he got that tattoo…

Encore Presentayshe: Let’s Go for a Catwalk

Since 2008, two French hikers have chronicled their trek from Miami, FL to the tip of South America, a journey of 15,000km (about 9,320 miles) through 13 countries.

But what elevates this hike down a hemisphere straight into the Cuteosphere is the third member of the team: A stray kitten who joined them in Louisiana.

Hup, two, three, four, Sender-Inner Keri F. See all the cat-trekking action over at Turn of the World!

Feeding Time

Now, let’s see… You get some duck food, and you get some duck food, and you get some duck food (wow, I feel just like Oprah here!)…

Well, that was fun. I wonder what’s for lunch?

Talk About an Orange Crush

Could somebody get Slurpy McSlurpersons here a straw? Maybe an orange peeler? Actually, one of those electric juicers would be useful…

Carmaggedon Outta Here!

From Long Beach up to Lancaster
No creature that’s alive
Knows not the dire disaster
That awaits the 405.

This weekend, in Los Ahn-ga-lees
A vital freeway closes
And brings the region to its knees
With gridlock, one supposes.

The thought of driving where you like
Will seem absurd and risible.
So Angelinos, ride a bike
Even if it’s just invisible.

The Lonely Life of the Paparazzi

People think it’s all glamourous and exciting — dash in, get the picture, then off to the pub — but that’s not it at all, mate. Stakeouts, they’re the worst: Cramped for hours in the boot of me car, waiting for that one perfect shot of a murder suspect’s wife’s boyfriend’s dentist’s nurse’s transsexual lover.

But the public’s got a right to know, and sacrifices like these are what quality journalism’s all about, in’nit?

Them Rocks Is Wily, Ah Tells Ya

Rock fishing ain’t for the feeble of mind, no sir. Takes patience, a keen eye, and the ability to stand on your head in shallow water. But the worst part is when you get’em on land — the little rascals’ll scamper right back into the drink ‘afore you can even get out your fliet knife.

Puppies Are the New Porn!

Fluffy animals are ruining the economy! Wall Street wheeler-dealers are hooked on YouTube videos of pandas suckling orphaned llamas! Cute Overload is the new Perez Hilton! Mauve is the new black! Asparagus is the new peanut butter! Read the shocking details at Slate (last three paragraphs)!

Michael S. knew this already.

Oof! Grr! Yay, I Did It!

Oh, sure — you and I go up and down steps all the time. But when you’re a chubby padded puppy, it’s a major milestone in life.
