Caprica vs Squirrel

C.O. Hiking Safety Tips

Hiking in the great outdoors can be a fun and rewarding activity. However, Nature is full of scary things that will totally eat you, so follow these tips:

  1. Remain on trails at all times.
  2. Do not disturb rocks, fallen trees, or remains of crashed UFOs.
  3. If you encounter hikers with a pronounced interest in chainsaws, hockey masks, or banjo music, notify authorities.
  4. For added protection, consider bringing a very large dog.

Like I Ain’t Sweatin’ Enough Already

Yeah, I like being a turtle OK. Shell keeps the rain off, kinda handy. Plenty of food right there at ground level, just help yourself. And of course, y’always know the way home, heh heh — boy, I hear that one enough times. Only complaint, really, this the hot part of the year ain’t the best time to be born wearing a turtleneck sweater.

He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Cucciolo

18700265872_b4362f573c_hRecently in Trieste, Italy, a nice man took his dog for a walk — and then did all the walking himself. We don’t know why he did that, but it was molto gentile of him.

Take Another Little Pizza My Heart

O pizza, I am your slave. Though your cheesy aroma fills my senses, my search for you remains fruitless (which is fine because I don’t like fruit).
