And the Stork Flew Away with a Hernia

There’s a new 147-pound addition at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, FL!

A baby reticulated giraffe was born just days ago to mom Teesa and dad Sterling. The calf will stay with mom in an area away from guest view so the baby can be closely monitored to ensure that the newborn is nursing and growing properly. After a few months, the duo will join the other animals on the Serengeti Plain, where they will surely experience a lot of rubbernecking.

As always, thanks for the updates, Nick G.

The Extremely Rare Motopup Simulspot

New Yorkers were recently treated to a cute sight — and not one, but two cuteologists caught it on camera.

First, Doryn W.: “We took this today in NYC. I just pulled up next to this woman and dog. The dog was so incredibly happy, loves the wind on his face. So funny!”

And later, Bonna T. “had just hopped in a cab when I noticed that on the motorcycle right next to us, this poodle was catching a ride.”

Why, it’s enough to make one exclaim “what tremendous fortuitousness,” or if one were in a hurry, an abbreviated form of said exclamation using only three letters.

Life Episode 4: Blorp

This second to last episode of Life, you will see some Blorp-tastic, sticky-eye-balled fish called “Mud Skippers”. They like to walk on land, breathe air, and shovel mud out of their houses with their moufs. They also make excellent mud wrestlers. Enjoy!

First & Last Date

During a lovely meal at McGregor’s, Bob looked at her awkwardly, so Betty sensed they were about to share their first kiss. She leaned in, batted her long lashes, looked up at him expectantly, and heard, “Sweetie, you look like you’ve grown an herbal Fu Manchu.”

Lettuce help her, Theallamenta.

What You Don’t Hear on Those Discovery Channel Mini-Series

Had I sat on the edge of your plate and stared while you devoured your bourgeois cheeseburger, I suspect my prying eyes would’ve been met with copious amounts of table salt! Yet here you perch, narrating my every bite. You sir, are the despicable slime!

Your strange new pet amuses me, human. I can see why you keep it under glass, though — it looks like a big tapeworm. Well, that was fun; is it time for my piano lesson now? I like this toy; it’s a perfect fit for my short attention sp–OK, piano lesson over, time for random whapping! WHAPWHAPWHAP!

Those Carrier Pigeons Just Get Smarter and Smarter

Why burden your beak when you can carry your scrolls in a JanSport?

Check out the actual story from NPR about how scientists are identifying dominant birds by placing GPS devices in – yes – backpacks. (Birds? GPS? Is this how they know how to poo smack-square on our heads?)
