Coming in at # 10: The New Face of Disapproval

I never thought I’d see a pup out-do a bunny in the disapproval depahtment, but it happened on May 6 of this year. Mai N. sent in “Pancake” the new face of DISAPPROVAL. Bunnies everywhere need to step up their game.

Scale of Disapproval: 5 out of 5

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…

At #8: The Squirrel Bomb

We will always remember August 10, the day a squirrelio photobombed this nice couple’s vacation. We’ll never forget the Squirrelizer meme that was born. Photo was by Melissa B. who was featured on National Geographic Daily Dozen. Sent in by Tracy B. and Marilyn T. from National Geographic Intelligent Traveler.

#6: Why is My Lunch Eating My Lunch?

In an amazing series of photos over on Mail Online., a fearless rat stared down a mighty leopard—and the leopard blinked. While the puzzled cat sniffed and watched, the rat helped itself to the leopard’s steak dinner. Sent in by John L.

Coming in hot at #5: Nobody understands Emo Bun

On June 18, Stephanie N. took a minute from cutting herself to send us this awesome shot, an emotional bunneh:

Emo Bun is going to put on his skinny jeans and play guitar in the garage.

Emo Bun doesn’t expect you fascists to understand his art.

Emo Bun is destined to travel through the misty and cold fog of existence alone and cold.

Life is hard for Emo Bun.

All Emo Bun has is his poetry.

Coming in at #4: Scratch scratch scratch, Surprise!

Sent in by Jorden C. on November 29, this one went to all the siblings out there that torture each other. “Why are you hitting yourself!? Why are you hitting yourself!?”

One More Thing…

I Got My Hair Did

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.

Ushering in the Decade’s First Hangover

Can you please get me a fried egg sandwich with a side of french fries and Coke, asap. And I beg of you, do it quietly.

Maybe order a pizza too, Alisha D.

Tit for Tat

Sabine knew that little Boris wasn’t the brightest bulb on the tree. For instance, she let it go for a while, but she finally acknowledged that his feeding instinct seemed to be off. Way off.

Maybe a map’s in order, Samantha H.?

THIS JUST IN: Snowboarding Dogs! – UPDATE

[Updated] A cute moment in this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade is a float featuring snowboarding bulldogs.  In this rehearsal video, the pups get some practice:

Update; here’s what the float looked like at the Tournament of Roses Parade, this just in from Priscilla W:

Check out the lil’ haus that brings the pups back up the hill:

Party Animal

Oh man, I really tore it up at the office party this year.  I told my best jokes, and I danced with all the ladies from Accounts Payable (ooooohh yeeeeeaaaah…).

I might have had just a teeny bit too much to drink, though…

Awww, he looks like a little angel when he’s passed out, Alison D.

Pandamonium, definish of

Mail Online is reporting that Panda Moms are too tie-tie to breed more often because they must take care of their rambunctious cubs. Check out this Trouble-causing Crib Climber:

Thanks, Nick W. and Sunny B. Check out ALL the great pics over at Mail Online.

THIS JUST IN: Knewly Knobbular Knees

Baby New Year showed up a little early at the Niabi Zoo in Illinois, in the form of this wobbly new giraffe born December 27.  The boy, about six feet, 150 pounds, was born a few days earlier than expected, but the little feller is doing just fine, and will greet the public when the zoo reopens next May.  Until then, he’ll bond with Mom, and do lots of fun giraffe-type activities, such as running around, flicking his tail, eating hay, nibbling leaves on trees (well, the shorter trees, anyway), or maybe take up a nice hobby, like stamp collecting, which can be a rewarding way to pass the time during the long winter months, because you also learn the history behind each stamp.  I recall I had a full set of 60’s-era state flag stamps as a boy; sadly, they were lost in a family move, but anyway…

On New Year’s Eve…

Be sure you have a safe ride home.

Happy New Year, Sharon J.

Hey Man, What’s Your Beef?

Farmer Ted was just tooling around on the tractor, minding his own business, when he saw Clyde, the herd punk. And before Farmer Ted could even mutter a small “hello,” he became victim to a drive-by moo-ing.

They start so young, Kelly B.
