Wookiee brings Snookie the Bear everywhere with her, and she keeps him protected in of her “love bites”. And while sitting in the garden is fine, car rides are a bit more complicated seeing as the bear is about 9 feet tall.
Hope the parents are pleased, DNA.

And from the “Where Are They Now” file: Internet trendsetter Happycat has revealed that he is hooked on grass. The cheeseburger-craving feline, credited with touching off the LOLcat craze, made the revelation on a recent episode of “Oprah.”

9th most popular post this year was: Waffles
On May 31, 2009 we met Waffles the kitteh. Waffles was photographed by LOL, Wary Meyers and sent in by some hooligan named Bling Blong. Waffles was your typical kitteh until he suddenly he crossed paths…

Life is hard for Emo Bun.

One More Thing…
Seeing as it’s the start of a new year, I went out on a ledge and tried a new hairdresser named Fabu. But unfortunately, it seems Fabu takes styling tips from Flock of Seagulls.
Stick with Bumble & Bumble, Amber and Kayleigh.

Maybe a map’s in order, Samantha H.?
