At the Whack-a-Mole Auditions

“… thank you, gentlemen, that’s some very good jumping, and the squeaking is top-notch, really. However, we’re only seeing moles today, terribly sorry. But do leave your pictures with the stage manager on your way out. Next, please?”

Lizzy C. says she made this noise when she watched this video.

A Polite Request from Monstro

Yeah, we’ve all seen the movie. Jiminy Cricket, Blue Fairy, “I got no strings,” the whole schmear. Hey, even my grandkids like it — until they get to that scene.

Look, I’m a big animal, and sometimes I swallow things. You try watching where you’re going with a head the size of a submarine. So if you happen to find yourself in my belly, do me a favor: Don’t start a fire; just knock. I’ll let you out, promise.

You Call This A Circle of Life?!

“… and so, Simba, the gazelles eat the grass, and then we eat the gazelles, and then we poop out the gazelles and they go back into the grass. And then a baboon smears Welch’s Grape Jelly on your forehead and that’s how you become king…”

That’s a song cue if ever I heard one, Andy R.

Cutest Bargain Ever!

Short on cash? Well, just look at what you can pick up with a penny these days! It’s a frog no bigger than a pea, discovered in the forests of Borneo. Scientists once thought it was a juvenile of a larger species, but now know this is as big as it gets.

You have an eye for detail, Katherine B.

A Correction and Apology

As longtime C.O. readers know, we can’t get enough of trick pool shooting, and love to showcase new talent. And so we thought we had when we featured “Lightning Vinnie” Garbanzo, who seemingly cleared an entire rack in a single break.

Alas, it was a fraud. In this slowed-down version of the original video, you can clearly see that an accomplice was used. We regret being taken in by this base deception, and wish to assure readers that this will not happen again.

Our thanks to alert reader Eleaq for bringing this to our attention.

The Guru Speaks

There are no shortcuts to Enlightenment, young student. In my quest for answers, long have I sat upon this rock…

This is a Vizcacha, says Susan H., who found more pics and a video The Featured Creature.

If This Bed’s A-Rockin’, Don’t Bother Knockin’

At first it looks like the possessed Hostess Cupcake from Hell, and then we step up and — hey, what do you know! — it’s just Carnitas the mini-peeg, rooting around in the teensy bed, looking for the car keys!

Another quality Carnitas video dug up by Barbarella F.!

Hang On, We’ll Be Right There

Honest, we’ll catch up, just hold your horses…

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.

HD available in video. More news, video at Gawker.

UPDATE: New! Improved! Now with 82% more Jamin!
