These Things Are Freakin’ Heavy!!!

These Leafcutter Ants are GETTIN’ DOWN TO BIDNESS. From Megan B.: “For St. Patrick’s Day, I thought these Leafcutter Ants carrying TINEH SHAMROCKS were quite appropriate! They live at the St. Louis Zoo in St. Louis, MO.”

Happy St. Piggy’s Day!

And let’s celebrate St. Piggy’s today with these chubbular little maniacs! The first dude is Kermit. His hoomin Sharon says, “You have a shortage of cute guinea pigs … so I’m submitting my piggy. I am not good at captioning, so feel free to add one if the pic gets posted. Happy St. Piggy’s Day – I mean St. Patty’s Day!” [Thanks for the headline. -Ed]

No, None Of Us Are Named “Patrick!”

It’s just that we’re all green! (Well, sorta.) Get it? St. Patrick’s Day? Now where’s the pitcher of green beer? WAITER!
[Ah yes, freshman year, Miami University. Pitchers of green beer for a quarter, 3am in uptown Oxford. Wait- I didn’t go, I don’t drink. Never have. Never mind. -B]
