So, Tell Me About Yourself…

Really? You don’t say? Well, I’ll be, isn’t that interesting! How many penguins, did you say? Goodness, that’s a lot! And on a unicycle, no less! Mercy! But isn’t that illegal? Ah, I see… so is there a lot of money in that sort of thing? Gracious, I had no idea!

Ding Dong!

Anybody home? I know you’re iiiiiin there! (sing song)

Alloo?! This is your wake up call!

Are you playing dead? (listens for heartbeat, checks pulse and breathing)

Don’t Be Ridiculous

I did not get blown into you by a gust of wind. I just tweeted you by accident.

Sender-inner Krista L. says, “Hello, I live in Victoria, BC and we recently had a very windy day. While I was walking to work I was leaning against the wind, being whipped around by leaves and dust and my own hair. I felt something hit the side of my face and get tangled in my hair/hoody. I reached in my hair and pulled out what I thought was a piece of trash but turned out to be this guy. He was tired from the wind pushing him around so he’d thought he’d hitch a ride in my hair. I put him at the bottom of a tree root to give him a little break from the wind so he could get his strength back up.”

Know Your Exotic Plant Species!

The Pigtunia (porcius redonkulii) is a flowering plant commonly found near farmland. It can be recognized by its distinctive red flower, which releases a piglet in early spring.

Tiny Dormouse Snores

The fine folks over at Boing Boing have reminded moi that the ever-snoozing and ever-prosh dormouse is hibernatin’ and therefore snoring up a storm these days. Will you please check out this redonk snoring action:

Did You Know™ that the dormouse sleep three quarters of the year in a nest? (That’s insta-dorabuhls). They weigh 15 to 30 grams, and they’re English, so you know when they talk, it’s absolutely charming.

What the Heck is That?!

Yah, I think that’s Elsie’s boy Norman, the one that come out all funny-lookin’…

Nah, can’t be…

Well, what is it, then? Can you milk it?

Hmm, don’t think so…

Sure smells funny, whatever it is…

Excuse Me, Sonny,

On which aisle would I find the pot noodles? I have a coupon. I have to go buy 3 packs of pot noodles, …and then return them, because I’ll forget my coupon, making everyone wait in line behind me while I look for my coupon!

And there’s a half-off sale on creamed corn, Mickie and Chris!

Hey, Watch Where You’re Shoveling

You just shoveled snow on my nice fur coat! All over my face! This is a cute face! Is this a face for hitting with snow, Mister I-Can’t-Watch-Where-I’m-Shoveling? Hah?

Katie H. wants you to know: “This is a little Schnauzer pup up for adoption in Hamilton, MT. His name is Trinity. I adopted both of my cats through our local shelters and have made a habit of perusing their websites. I saw this little snow-dusted cutie on their site today and knew he was destined for Cute Overload greatness! And maybe someone close by will see his picture on your site and scoop him up quick! Thanks for always giving me my daily ‘Aww!’ “

Good Clean Fun

Have you ever had one of those days, where you just wanna hang out?

How will your pup get Downy, Megan C.?

Here’s A Tip

Dogs will come to you because they are good. Cats will come to you because they are good and ready.
