Consider Your Facade Blown, Pretty Kitty

In an unusual move, “Cat Fancy Magazine” recently featured an expose detailing the necessary grooming and heavy airbrushing that goes into prepping a high-maintenance kitty for a print ad.

Let’s examine the “after” photos first:

Now prepare to be flabbergasted as we take a look at the raw footage of the very same kitty during the very same photo shoot:

Your Move

(This is going to be a tough match… Should I open with the Sicilian Defense? What if she counters with Queen’s Gambit? I could attempt a Bishop’s Flanking Wedgie, but that will be risky if she knows Von Woofenoff’s Kamikaze Knight maneuver…)

Can’t we just play Candy Land, Jessica T.?

Sidetracked by Wikipedia’s Tangled Web of Information, Bunny Wastes Day, Learns Little

I did not know that the world’s largest carrot weighed in at 19 pounds and was grown in Palmer, Alaska. Nor did I realize that the first lawn mower was invented in 1927 by Edwin Budding. Interesting…it seems cumin is the second most popular spice after black pepper. Who knew!

You Must Be at Least This Cute to Ride

From DisneyParks Blog, Disneyland’s Circle-D Corral welcomed some new arrivals over the past few days: Cute baby goats!  According to sources, the children are healthy and frisky and already whining to go on the Dumbo ride just one more time.

“Oh, thank you, doctor! My neck had been totally out of alignment, and it was really filling my chi flow with lots of dark energy. So, are my shirts ready?”

Sandy W. leaves us with an earworm: “The song ‘He Ain’t Heavy, He’s My Brother’ by The Hollies came to mind when my husband showed me the picture.”

Darla, Do Your Stuff…

Well hey there, Mr. Officer, sir. *plink-plink* I know we may have been going just a teensy bit over the speed limit – and we’ll never do it again –  but can you blame a pup for wanting to stick her adorable head out the window to feel the wind on her face and drool rolling off her tongue? *plink-plink*

I bet you always get off with warnings, Emily M.

I Am Stuck on Band-Aids…

… because Band-Aids can be turned into cute animal finger puppets, with teensy little earses! (Gee, now I want to hit my finger with a hammer so I can try this.)

Says Lisa C.: “Today I learned that those H-shaped Band-Aids are to put on your fingertips…and they look like Scottish fold kitty ears!”
