Am I a giant? / Or lost in surreal madness? / Your haiku decides

Thanks for the trip through the looking glass, Betsy B. Photo by the squirrely John C. His Flickr photos are here.

Update: NTMTOM here, pickin’ some faves (as of noon Pacific Time):

Am I dreaming you,
Or is it you dreaming me?
Let’s never wake up.
(Cath)

Master Skwerla teach
Young Skwerlwalker Ways of Force
Pumpkin, lift you will?
(Metz)

Window shopping sqwerl
Sees stripes are in this season
And giant handbags
(Trabb’s Boy)

contemplative hands
what the hell is that blue thing?
oh, look- tiny me!
(temperance)

Beautiful rodent
In an unaccustomed role
Big man on campus
(Raymond)

Squirrel’s autumn gaze
My double, safe and secure
While I adventure
(Berthaservant)

Behind the window
artificial reflection
of my perfection
(Nuri)

at the stroke of noon
your coach became a pumpkin
my nuts hit the floor
(Patito Gigante)

Play him off, Freshwater Otter!

Will you please get a load of these prosh paws on the keyboard!

I’m sure the folks over at Monterey Bay Aquarium know what they’re doing Debra N. Oh and Keyboard Cat is watching his back!

Nobody understands Emo Bun

Emo Bun is going to put on his skinny jeans and play guitar in the garage.

Emo Bun doesn’t expect you fascists to understand his art.

Emo Bun is destined to travel through the misty and cold fog of existence alone and cold.

Life is hard for Emo Bun.

All Emo Bun has is his poetry.

Don’t cut yourself, Emo Bun! Don’t do eet! Thanks for the submishe, Stephanie N.

Mmmmm! whiskery!

3-week old flamingo falling asleep

1. Wow, look at those stilt legs!
2. This musak really helps the storyline [shifty eyes]
3. This video leaves us with the eternal question—did he ever strike a balance?

Hey Dalvenjah F., what’s better than counting sheep? CuteThingsFallingAsleep.org.

Mr. Squawkie goes for a walkie!

“Check what I found when I got home this evening – his dad was sitting on top of my neighbour’s car looking very disapproving indeed so I waited till they’d gone off for chips before i went to take these shots. He’s like a fluffy nubbin on a stick (or two, to be precise) – like those things people clean their ears with.

He also benefits from extreme beauty close-ups – you know what i’m talking about ;D I fear he shall not last the night but he might stay alive in our hearts for ever more if you post him.. and you never posted pictures of my dog, and this little dewd is even cuter (shhh!! don’t say it out loud!) so if you don’t post this I’ll KNOW it’s personal….”

Vintage Blorp

Time for an oldie: This roly-poly puddle of blorpitude was part of the welcoming committee for the First Australasian Antarctic Expedition, almost one hundred years ago.
