Dr. Megalo, World’s Most Adorable Supervillain, Addresses the Jury

Ladies and gentlemen, I stand before you unbowed and unrepentant. For while you may have broken my plans, you shall never break my will. It is this will, this vision, that drives me to my ultimate destiny — to rule all mankind.

Do you think your oafish officers can hold me? Do you think your pathetic prisons can contain me? Hah! Like the phoenix I shall rise — stronger, wrinklier, more determined — and soon, all nations will tremble at the name of Megalo.

So enjoy your moment of triumph, worthless insects! Laugh while you can, for someday the last laugh shall be mine! Mine, I say! Mwuah-hah-hah-hah-hah-hah!

The Dracster’s Back!!!

People, this is truly exciting! Give it up for CO’s Favorite Bat—Lil’ Drac! He’s been hanging out (er, literally) at Bat World Sanctuary down thar in Mineral Wells, Texas, you all.

According to their site, we’re still in orphan season (through the end of the month) for North American bats. Here’s what to do if you find a Bebeh Batster that needs help. Here are two recent photos of The Little Man hisself:

C.O. Crime Alert!

Police are on the lookout for Daisy McFloon, the so-called “Napping Bandit.” Authorities have released this composite sketch, which the suspect helpfully posed for.

Philip C. writes: “Our boxer-hound rescue Izzy can be very patient as a model. Also likes looking out the window. And pictures of herself.”

Flashback Friday

Meet Horace, the bright-eyed, domesticated hare of Dublin, Ireland, 1956, who, “hops blithely through the kitchen, hanging out in the bathroom or sitting quietly on the living room sofa” and “holds sway in the household, and the humans are there, for the most part, simply to do Horace’s bidding.”
