From The Cute Farmer’s Almanac

As the days get shorter, and the carefree days of summer yield to earnest fall, it’s time to put up a supply of kittens to see you through the cold winter months ahead. When selecting a storage jar for your kitties, make sure it’s not too small.

The white ones are my favorite, Beverly A.

Vintage Overboard

“Hey, guys? Could somebody throw me one of those — oh, what are they called? — those rescuing things? Oh, you know, the round things with the hole. Um, it’s named just like the candy? Totally drawing a blank here; it’s not Necco Wafers, I know that… Now I’ve got the word preserver stuck in my head, so it must be that candy with lots of preservatives… Man, it’s right on the tip of my tongue…”

Dancin’ Machine!

Even pandas can’t resist doin’ a little chair dance at the office once and a while. Here’s some lucky video of Party Panda doin’ a little scratch mixing.

Oh No — Platform Shoes Are Back?!

Sender-inner Alexandra R. asks: “Who doesn’t love a little extra glam! These are pictures from our family farm in New Jersey. Our horses love being pampered! My horse Cuda is in leopard print, gold and blue stars and the tiger stripe pattern is my sister’s horse Gabriel.”

At Last: Fat and Round Pigs!

These New Zealand piglets are called “Kunekune,” a Maori word meaning “fat and round.” We prefer the term “Kunekunekune,” which is an ancient word we just made up that means “fat and round and cute and OMG my brains just turned to pudding somebody get a paper towel they’re oozing out my ears blarrggtth…”

More fatness and roundness at The New Zealand Kunekune Association.
