Definite Speakers UP For THIS One

And if your speakers are broken, run right out and buy a new pair. (I have a great pair from Bose I can recommend to you FWIW.) Why rush right out? ‘Cause you’re gonna need ’em for THIS little guy! “I can’t stop watching this video of an America Woodcock using its whole body to make little “weaan” noises. Do we have a Rule Of Cuteness for Cute Noises? Squeaking is Cute? If you make Cute noises, that’s Cute?” [*Note: Must consider this. BTW, a Woodcock is also known as a Timberdoodle. -Ed.]

P.S. “Thank you for bring so much Cute into my life every day.”

Well, they get their own tag for making these. “I saw this tweet, and *immediately* thought of your site. I read the Submissions Contract, but I’ll admit, I’m not quite sure if you can use this. From what I can tell, I think you can use it if you credit Mental Floss? [*Note: Yes. -Ed.] Thanks for helping me start my day on a bright note!” -Lisa B.


Chicks Dig the Medallion

One-of-a-kind and it’s mine all mine! Whenever I put it on, I get a spring in my step and a bob in my beak, and ladies flap in from all over town just to check me out! Like I always say, you want to turn a head, show some bread!

Japan Coulda Used This Guy In The World Cup
