Do Ya Wanna Play Do Ya Do Ya Do Ya

This little Prairie Dog is simply not gonna take no for an answer. And if the cat really doesn’t wanna play, well, there’s always that cardboard box. (Great Jazz Hands display and Backwards Movement going on, too.)

Most people, including this little guy, embrace the “Rats, It’s Monday” philosophy. But not THIS fellow!

Got The Monday Grumps?

You’re not the only one. (Speakers up for the Squeaks, btw.)

“I volunteer at the Alberta Institute for Wildlife Conservation and this little fellow is one of our current residents. Another volunteer and I took him outside for some exercise, but what he really wanted to do was nap! You can hear his grumpy little squeaks as we try to get him to move around. We haven’t named him as we are hoping to release him once he’s a bit older. However, many of us are referring to him by the oh so original nickname of “Porky.” -Sandi F.

Japan Prosh. On A Stick.

Quoting the source article from Kotaku.com, these are “Amezaiku’ (飴細工) or “Candy Handiwork.”

Apparently, it’s “practiced in various forms for around a thousand years or so.”

Prices (in USD) range from $3.00 to $85.00.

These are all creations of chief artist Takahiro Yoshihara and his staff, at his Tokyo store.

You can watch them Create The Cute in the two videos at the bottom of this post.

Directions to the store are here if you -happen- to be in The Big T.

Oh, and here’s the store FB page.

Rats, It’s Monday!

Little Dude has decided that, well, the effort of waking up is just too much for him. So if you don’t mind, and even if you DO..he’ll see you tomorrow, thankyouverymuch.
