That’s right, you furry red fiend — keep laughing. Mock me. I will have my revenge soon enough. Those batteries can’t last forever.
From time to time, readers claim that some photos on our site are digitally altered, or ” ‘shopped,” in the common vernacular. What they may not know is that all photos featured in this blog undergo a rigorous screening process designed to weed out such deceit, and assure the viewer of genuine cuteness.
For a glimpse into this process, let us consider the image below. The casual viewer may be quick to declare this a forgery, pointing to the curious lack of shadows beneath the squirrel’s paws. However, this can be easily explained by the clouds in the background diffusing the sunlight. Verdict: Not ‘shopped.
In this comical scene, the meerkat on the left appears to have been stretched to a height taller than the others, and it’s tempting to believe that it has been cloned from the similar meerkat on the right. However, a closer inspection of their faces and hand positions reveals that they are unique. Verdict: Not ‘shopped.
Finally, let us turn our attention to this scene of urban chaos. Sharp-eyed viewers will note that an overturned vehicle in front of the cat has been duplicated in reverse just to its right. In addition, the cat’s front paws are too far apart to hold the taxicab, which has obviously been substituted for a much larger vehicle, such as an ambulance or FedEx truck. Verdict: This looks ‘shopped.

Highwaymen, beware! Blaggards and knaves, take care!
For a hero roams the forest with a might beyond compare!
With his faithful St. Bernard, he is always on his guard,
Fighting evil and injustice with a proud and piercing stare!
For this brave and bold chihuahua
will not fail his finest howah,
And he’ll make the cowards cowah
With his mighty Yap of Powah!
So sing his praises from the rocks and from the tallest tree,
He’s the Wa-Wa of Des-tin-eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
I feel safer already, Ant.
Look, I know you meant well. It was a thoughtful gesture; I mean that, really. And goodness knows, we were long overdue for an outing, seeing how cooped-up we all get during the rainy season.
But seriously, check the five-day forecast before planning the picnic, mmm-keh?
Better not put the galoshes away just yet, Aaron.
