You Look Fantastic, Mr. Fox

“Are you getting my left profile? The shadows on my nose aren’t too harsh, are they? Did I do that thing with my tongue? Dang, I bet I did that thing with my tongue. Ooh, I can’t bear to see how this turns out…”

Yee-up, I Remember the Rains of ’42…

Sheriff Slimetrail comes a-runnin’ down the road, must’a been doin’ a mile an hour easy, tellin’ us to get to high ground. So I crawl on top of the grain silo, and Lucille gets on top of the outhouse, and we just wait it out singing old love songs…

Once You Pop, You Can’t Stop

Hello, I’m Rocky, and I’m a popoholic. (group: Hi, Rocky.) For me, it started so innocently, just a small sheet now and then, and I told myself I could keep it under control. When I hit bottom, I was doing three sheets a day, and ordering stuff I didn’t even need just to get the bubble wrap.

Saving Clarice

From Cuteporter KB: “Clarice was at the farm of a person who was badly neglecting his animals. She’s the only surviving lamb- just 4 days old when I met her. She was in rough shape when they got her- I think it was on the day she was born- but the rehabber nursed her back to health and she’s doing well. The Animal Rescue Team is in Solvang, California.”

This One Is For The Birds

“I MUST tell you how much your laugh-out-loud, got-me-squeeing-all-the-time, witty, quippy Qte brightens my day every time I go online. It’s been the home page on my browser for years. I submit for your con-see-der-a-shon…a song sparrow I saw on campus one day last fall, looking like it was waiting for the bus. When I saw it, I thought “Rule of Cuteness #6.” I’m studying songbirds for my Ph.D. and have started posting their close-up adorableness on my Twitter page.” -Megan S.

“Two female Sifaka lemurs, Gertrude and Eleanor, were born on January 5 at the Duke Lemur Center. Gertrude weighed .23 pounds (105 g) at birth and Eleanor—a big girl!— weighed .25 pounds (117g). Gertrude is the daughter of mom Pia and dad Jovian – Jovian being the famous lemur that played Zoboomafoo in the popular kids show by that name on public television. Eleanor is daughter to Rodelinda and Marcus. Both infants are in the process of being introduced to their fathers and siblings, and all is going well.” Via Zooborns.
