Meanwhile, in Kennel 101…

Winston Smith’s response to the interrogation is more restrained than anticipated:

Literally on a treadmill

This hamster is as sick of French lit as I am:

I don’t want to alarm anyone, but the spinner is missing…

Unfortunately, they realized too late that Farmer Ted had duped them once again. In hindsight, his suggestion did seem odd; and playing Twister over an empty bowl proved to be very foolish, indeed.

Jenga!

Farmer Ted will pay, Julie D.

Winston Just Got Schooled.

Oh, Winston. You know you’re a bit of a hero in these parts, but that’s only because we’re drawn to magnificently fluffy, ambivalent cats with questionable intelligence. Yes, studies suggest your brain is the size of that kernel you don’t know how to eat, as evidenced in this cob-bacle. So it pains us (delights us!) to do this to you, but this is how it’s properly done. Winston, meet Myack:

That cob never saw that cat comin'.

Myack? Really?

R.I.P., corn. R.I.P.

He’s a cobnobbing cat, Lillian O.

Vincent and Jules Hatch Their Plan

“I don’t know…What do you think?”

“It’s risky. But if I’ve done the calculations correctly, I think it will hold. I just wish it had a bit more length.”

Say hello to my little friend.

“And what about the pigs?”

“You know them – it’s always hard to tell with their incessant wheet-wheet-wheeting, but I think they’re on board. But they want us to go first. You know, because of our ‘lucky feet’.”

“Typical. So we’re a go?”

“Affirmative.”

The following morning Farmer Ted went out to his garden and discovered a veritable vegetable massacre. All that was left along the outside of the fence were six tiny trench coats, six tiny mustaches, and one leaf of kale. Farmer Ted thought back to the previous week and suspected that those ungrateful bunnies had actually followed through on their written threat:

“fArMheR Tehd:

We sicK of KAle. FEed us CaRROt oR wE usE kAle as PoLE vAUlt inTO VehgtIblE gARdEn. U hAve 7 Day.

Build a higher fence, Julie D.

Rubber Duckie, You’re So Huge

Don’t tell Ernie, but someone zapped his favorite tubbie toy (or our mascot) with the Giganto-Ray and sent it on a goodwill tour.  Hatched by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, this 9.5m tall by 11m long rubber duck has been spotted in Europe, Japan, and Brazil.  More photos here, and don’t miss the video below.

This Just In: Baby Elephant in Utah

Actually, make that this just out, because the Hogle Zoo in Utah introduced a new baby elephant, born to first-time mom Christie on August 10.  The calf, a girl, went on public display over the weekend.

Many more photos here, and watch her get rambunctious in this video.

Sender-Inner Jessica’s last name is ‘Fu’. That’s an excellent last name for a bunny (fu fu.)
