Tired of Fast Food?

Looking for an alternative to the fast pace of fast food?  Then bring your appetite — and a couple of hours — down to Tortoise Burger, where your meal crawls right to your table.  Have it your way — eventually.

Free Raccoon With 20-ounce Pepsi!

For a very limited time, these Tulsans got a bonus with their soda:  Two caffeinated raccoons, followed by a “skunk whisperer” named Bruha (ha!) who called it “refreshing” but blew his chance to call it “the choice of a new generation.”

Nobody Understands Goth Guinea, Either

The Red River Zoo in Fargo, ND had a blessed event that’s about 1.5 times more blessed than usual: A rare set of red panda triplets.  And if that wasn’t enough, the mother was tracking down a murder/kidnapping suspect in a tan Ciera the whole time she was pregnant, dontcha know.

And You’ll Need to Crank It to “Full Kitten” When Bill O’Reilly’s On

At last, something to make watching cable news bearable: “Happy Time” cuteness-in-picture.  Caution: May not be effective against Jim Cramer or Glenn Beck.

Wow, this is even better than Relax-O-Vision, Dan Z.

Kitty Green Screen Dream Challenge!

Today on “Hollywood Movie Magic” we’ll use green-screen special effects to create an amazing dream sequence!  First, we film this kitty in front of a green screen, then we turn to our Cute Overload commenters, who write her into a dazzling dream in which anything can happen!

So how about it, special-effects wizards?  What’s this kitty dreaming?

Or is it you dreaming me?
Let’s never wake up.

Sees stripes are in this season
And giant handbags

My double, safe and secure
While I adventure

your coach became a pumpkin
my nuts hit the floor
(Patito Gigante)
