Building Better Bunnies

Welcome to Pet Propulsion Laboratories, where we make ani-pals faster, stronger, and cuter. In our wind tunnel, for example, we’re testing a new aerodynamic bunny that can reach speeds of over 90 MPH.

Thanks to researchers Serena C. and Ting Y.

And Now, Time for the Weather

Well, folks, it looks like clear skies for your early morning commute, but by mid-morning we’re going to see those low-hanging catocumulus clouds, and you know what that means — it’ll be raining cats and dogs by this weekend.

Don’t forget your umbrella, Rosie.

THIS JUST IN: Maru in a rain coat

Everyone’s favorite round-faced kitteh pal Maru just tweeted this stylish pic. Love the one-ear action.

You Tell ‘em, Tough Guy!

“That’s right, you better run! And don’t come flinging your poo at me again!”

Know Your Obscure Norse Goddesses!

Very little is written about the warrior princess SkëlärthGrøønt, who took the form of an alpaca sharing a head with a soccer mom from Keosaqua, Iowa. One ancient text refers to a similar creature intervening in battle to confound the invading Visigoths with a series of increasingly complex riddles involving buttered toast.

New on Dateline: Kitty Catches Tail, but at What Price?

Some say he’s not playing with a full deck because he uses his claws. Others think he’s an overachiever…

Me-ouch, Erin S.

An Offer He Shouldn’t Have Refused

Jack Woltz fluttered his eyes as the the first rays of sunlight brushed his face. He could hear the servants busy in the kitchen downstairs, and he ran through the day’s itinerary in his mind: Breakfast on the patio, a brisk swim, then a ride on his favorite stallion before his afternoon meeting at Paramount Pictures.

His leg brushed against an object in the bed with him. Feeling hesitantly along the covers, his hand detected a familiar outline. Woltz flung away the bedsheets and gaped in horror into the lifeless eyes staring back at him, and realized — only too late — that Don Corleone was not a man to be trifled with.
