The Unified Theory of Everything

Sitting here like this, just watching the day go by, I’m always humbled by the scope and complexity of the world. Think of it: on this random rock in space, plants grew from the dirt, creatures crawled from the mud, and somehow the creatures and the plants and the rock combined to form ice cream and skyscrapers and forests and bicycles… everything in the world. And you look at it, and it’s tangled and orderly and rigid and flowing and squalid and majestic — all at the same time.

And it just makes you feel lucky to be alive. You know what I mean? Guys?

You know, these philosophical discussions would be so much more enriching if you clowns could hold up your end of the conversation just for once.

How To Fake Your Way Through A Conversation

No, really?… You don’t say?… My stars, who’d a thunk it?… Uh huh…. yeah… yep… No, do go on, this is most interesting… Yeah… Uh-huh….

Flickr user Samuel Sharpe brings us “an Australian Green Tree Frog that somehow made its way into my kitchen. Judging by the facial expression I am guessing he found what he was looking for.”

Update on Junebug and Burnett

The first time we met our adorable pair, Junebug was a tiny, recently rescued kitten and Burnett was her, Mom, er, something. Now Junebug is grown up and Burnett is her, well, see for yourself! They’re in love! And they don’t care what the other dogs and cats think!

Oh no, Alaina M., dogs and cats in love! Mass hysteria, riots in the streets!

Nobody Gets In Without The Password

“Swordfish” is incorrect. You have 2 more chances to get it right.

“123456” is incorrect. You have 1 more chance.

You know, I don’t generally do this, but…I’ll give you a hint. If you’re a bloke and lookin’ for love, put on your green cloak and…

(sigh) “Smoke” is incorrect. Go Away.

Extreme Froghandle Closeup!

Sender inner Ken B. says he “felt something soft and wet behind the handle. When I pulled my hand away, this guy popped his head out a second or two later. He seemed like I was disturbing him.”

Kids Goatin’ Around

Clementine (the all white goat): Tee hee! I totally tooted!

Huckleberry (the brown faced goat): Rude! These 3 day old legs of mine cannot get me outta here fast enough.

No kidding, Sara H., these are a couple of cuties!

Just A Spoonful…

Houdini sure makes lackluster day shinier, doesn’t he?

Rule of Cuteness #49: If You Curl Up Into a Circle When You Sleep, It’s Cute

Could there be anything more cute and convenient than being able to use one’s own butt as a pillow? We think not.

Welcome back to everybody’s favorite game show! Last week was amazing! Over 6,100 votes and 52% of you guessed correctly, a ferret. Really nice work, everyone. Let’s see how you do this week.

Tic toc. Tic toc. Buzzzzzzz! Time’s up.

Let’s get a hint from our special guest. “Since we three are all rodents, we have many similarities. We like to graze on grasses and leaves, we stick to the ground, are very social and vocal and have the same names for males and females – boars and sows. One of the things that sets me apart from the others is my multiple roles in television and movies. Good luck!”

Have you got it? Scroll down for the answer.

If you guessed c. a guinea pig, you were correct! Our thanks to this week’s sponsor, Kelly and see you next time when we play, WHAT! IS! THAT?

This Is No Mere Cat!

This is a talented street performer. Cajus the cat is one of those living statues, remaining still for hours at a time. He calls this pose “The Meerkat”.

And guess what? Cajus will do parties! You can have him at your next soiree and surprise the heck out of your Aunt Judy. His rates are very reasonable, just 2 fish an hour!

Book Cajus for your next get together through his agent, Alisa E.
