Ode to a Muskox

This steadfast young fellow’s a muskox calf,
His mama’s nearby, so best not point and laugh.
He lives in Alaska, on a farm up in Palmer,
Where the winters are cold but the summers are calmer.

His farm needs donations, that’s what Esther cautions,
For the muskox is hungry and eats such big portions.
So visit the site, toss some bucks in their box,
Then drive up this summer and meet a muskox!

Lunch with Bunch

“This is Teddy!” says sender-inner Lindsay F. “He is a bunny despite his funny ears. People thinks he looks like a bun-chilla.” But since he’s posing with a banana, we’ll just call him a “Bunch.”

I just met a Peep named Ma-ree-aaa…

I’ll see your bookshelf Peeps diorama, and raise you the fourth annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest, which drew over 1,100 entries, some recreating classic movie moments like Peep Side Story

…and Alfred Hitchcock’s The Peeps. Check out a slideshow of top entrants and see full coverage at the Washington Post site.

Après-April Fools Leftovers

Thanks for putting up with yesterday’s April Fool’s trickery. Since some people asked, here are two videos that we used in pranks, in their unadulterated form.

Schnauzer vs. Elmo: Who will prevail?

Buddy laying around in the sink:

Pretty Itty-Bitty Not-So-Biggie Piggies!

Check out the latest pet craze in England. Some little piggies go to market, but these micro-piggies stay wee, wee, wee — and go all the way to loving homes.

OK, OK, We’ll stop.

It’s been a long April Fool’s Day, and you’ve probably had enough of our pranks by this point. So let’s get things back to normal with this video of a kitteh doing what kittehs do best: Taking up space.

The Eternal Struggle of Elmo vs. Schnauzer

That’s right, you furry red fiend — keep laughing. Mock me. I will have my revenge soon enough. Those batteries can’t last forever.

‘Shopped or Not? A Handy Guide

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.

I’m never staying in this hospital again

You pay extra for a room with a private nurse, and then she just goes to sleep on the job, while I’m stuck sneezing my head off!
