CO Classics… well, enough said.

[snooty voice *ON*]

Normally this is where I do a bit of an intro & summary of the selection, lamenting Modern Man’s inability to learn from the past enumerating the ways in which the classics inform the events of the present day, like Alistair Cooke from Masterpiece Theater.  (Yep.  Juuust like him.)  This post, however, needs no introduction.

Ow! A third submission for a new “Cats n’ Racks” category arrived. It’s now an offical category! As ‘Tracy B’ noted, “It doesn’t get any rackier than this. :)” ha!

Save me Mr. Gershwin!

Summer-tiiiiiime
And they’re comin’ to get me
Pups are jumpin’
At my cam’ra held high

Oh your teeth are fine
Keep ‘em clear of my Canon
This candid CutePortering
Dumps me on my behiiiiiind

Ehhh, who am I kidding; I’d do this all day.  Thanks to Lucy, Ricky, and my lovely neighbors across the street.

Rabbit Sprout

Just felt like mixing a little red shag in with all the green grass.  Oh, and a little lop. ;)

They’re creeping up on me, TELLING ME TO POST THEM. I must oblige.

Alpaca If I Want’a

Back on January 31st of 2007, we busted these two in flagrante delicious. Now researched, resized, and recidivindicated for 2009.

Will you please look at this sheared neck action, and accidental bebeh Alpaca smoooosh. Could be a good one to send to that certain someone on Valentine’s day. It’s like; “I theenk I want to smoosh you, but I’m only 90% sure/shear”

Smooosh

Nice McSmooshersons, Christina P…

Blockbuster Bunday Bonanza

‘Scuse me while I lay this five-part scrolldown on y’all, lapine style.  Can’t go wrong with the classics!

You heard me, Kuki.

Quick! Let’s scurry!
OK, first of all, this is one awesome photograph, Emily M. It’s really beautiful—kinda along the lines of Died and Gone to Heaven. Can’t you imagine that you’re in this field, and this teeeeny bunny comes up to you, and she’s all; “Come with me! I’ll show you the secret bunny burrow—we’ll be safe there! But we must hurry!”

ENCORE: So Cute, It’s Unreal

Way back in the Once Upon, before the world was in color, before time was what turned kittens into cats, it came to pass that our Fearless Leader dispatched this missive across the interwires by high-resolution telegraph, on August the 16th, in the year of two-thousand-and-eight

Puh-lease. Too, too moshe:

black and white?
miniscules and striped?
ear flappage and paw danglage?

How Can I Keep From Singing?

I apologize in advance to all you well-rounded music aficionados out there for my dissonant genre-mashing; my own tastes are… eclectic.  But it’s Saturday, it’s gorgeous, and darned if I don’t feel like a little Pawl, Yawn, Jawrge and Ringtail this morning.  ♫ Here comes the sun, doodle-oo-doo… wait, no, Meg’s got a better idea:

We can work it out
We can make this whole damn thing work out
With a little nom, we can lay it down
Can’t you feel this website exploding?

Sender-Inner Lori W. FOUND ANOTHER ONE!

Pug Prebuttal

Peeps, I just had to re-post this one.  I mean, sorry, um… I wanted to run this game-changing action item back up the flagpole to see what paradigm shifts.  Mike, take it away; I gotta walk/trot/run to a webinar.

Gentlemen, We Have a Situation

“It has come to my attention that our company is faced with a crisis. Now, I want to be pro-active here, so I’ve called this little pow-wow to make sure we’re all on the same page about this thing.

“Now, men, a crisis is nothing but an opportunity mixed with danger. In fact, it was the ancient Egyptians who combined the symbols for opportunity and danger because they had never heard it before, the word crisis, I mean, but anyway, if we work as a team, we can seize this bull by the horns (or maybe it was the Chinese), and think outside the box to fast-track a best-in-breed, synergistic solution that will facilitate a sea change throughout our enterprise.

“And remember, there is no “I” in team, but there is an “I” in pie … in, er, meat pie, and the anagram of meat is team, and … mmm, pie … I’m sorry, what was the question again?”

I think I used to work for this guy, Kate M.

We maded you a martini, Sandy B., but we drinked it.
(Recipe based on the classic James Bond martini. More recipes here.)

Sender-inner Jessica L. writes: “Okay, here’s a strange one for you. But every time I look at these pictures I think how cute it is, so I thought I’d send it on in. It is a turkey made out of a pine cone who has clearly befriended a sprouted onion. Seriously, check it out. Or maybe I’m just strange.”

[shifty eyes] Thanks… [looks over shoulder]

Oh hey, I found the onions.

Yeah, it’s strange. But in a good butter duck or tree sweater way.

Behold a gaggle of color-coded Peeps riding multi-colored horses.

Even stranger is the text accompanying the submission: “These little guys deserve fun too.”

Um. OK. [shifty eyes in disbelief]
