She was like the Helena Bonham Carter of cats; she was exceptionally unusual. Her eyes, for instance, were like something I’d never seen – they were like giant saucers overflowing with thick carrot puree. And my God, I love carrot puree.

Lookie What Loki Found

Oh boy, I bet these have been buried here since 1984! What a treat this is! A real relic from the past!

They taste like the Wrinkled One’s hard candies, but still – what a find! Check ‘em out – WAX LIPS!

Neill S writes: “My girlfriend and I were at the Phoenix Zoo and saw the funniest thing. We were looking at the flamingos and noticed a duck that was trying his hardest to be one himself!

Sunday Wrap Up: Snooze-a-bun-a-thon

The most popular post this week behind (Impossibirds, for a second straight week, someone alert Price-Waterhouse) was “So where do you put the batteries?”

We checked back into the C.O Archives [Casey Kasem voice] and found, lo’ and bunhold, another couple of photos that ALSO need batteries.

Enjoy!

Um, Congrats to Graphic Designer Katie L. who has officially achieved a TRIPLE encore presentayshe.

Let’s play Dog or Piglet

Sender-Inner Emily E. claims: “Viewed from behind, she looked like a little piglet—chubby belly and cork screw tail.”

Not to mention piglets AND dogs like sleeping on the carpet in sunbeams…

I’m going with piglet.
