This Just In: Moose on the Loose

What a rotten way to start your life: Separated from your mom, chased by wild dogs, a state trooper thinks you’d be better off dead, and worst of all, you gotta move to Wisconsin.  But thanks to some kind Alaskans, it’ll be a happy ending all the same for this moose calf. Full story and more pics at the Los Angeles Times.

Awareness is dawning now:
“HE does not love me!”
-Felicityanne

You rest there for now
But next time you’re not looking
I will nom your face
-Dana

These Fox New pundits,
Immediately attack
New court nominee.

Move your proud buttocks
Why don’t you go lick a pig
Bleenin’ pasickie

I am descended
From black panthers and lions
You are named for jam.

Haikus are easy,
But they don’t always make sense,

Nice shot, Sarah W.

So, Who’s Using the Wall, Again?

Remember our little workout cutie from the other day, and how some of you were all like “Hah!  The dog’s leaning against the wall!”  Well, check it, peeps: Wall-free aerobic awesomeness, and yes, more Beatles music.

Happy Fursday!

“This lovely animal on the photos show the Newfoundland Leilah, the lady dog of my parents,” writes sender-inner Nahal A.  “She got sleepy in the garden, but luckily she had her Molly with her…”  Probably got tired from hauling all that fur!

This is Not a Half-Pipe

Dude, you call this a half-pipe?  It’s, like, totally made of construction paper or something, and it’s not even big enough for my skateboard!  I’m, like, a professional athlete, dude, I don’t have time for this!

With the approach of Summer, be sure to check your Kitten Trees for the first fruit of the season.  Normally, the Kitten Tree will produce in mid-June, but occasionally a few kittens will drop early, and should be promptly harvested before they become confused and moldy.

Finally, Your Prayers Are Answered!

Feel the burn, Phillip P.

This Is Not a Pup Smoking a Pipe

Alas, it is merely the image of a pup smoking a pipe.  We post it to illustrate the paradox that confronts us: Even as we seek the essence of Teh Qte, we attain only its effigy, captured in an imperfect medium that robs our senses of the nuance of sound and touch: The wagging of the tail; the satisfying feel of a skritchy-scratch under the chin; the glance of recognition at the phrase “who’s a good boy, then?” or as the French would say, “Oo ees zay goot boy, zen?” Indeed, it was René Descartes, a leading light among the French philosophers, who would probe the boundaries of Man’s attempts to reconcile the worlds of the real and the ethereal, seeking the underlying truth behind the contradictions of our fruitless quest to…

Uh, would you kids in the background like to get a room or something?  SHEESH!

Save some room for Eunice S’s sender-inner surprise, gramps!
