The Aliens Have Landed!

I just saw them, it was horrible! They came out of the water with these blade-like antennae on their backs, flappy orange arms, and they just kept staring at me with their one eye and making this creepy gurgling noise!

(bird) ‘Tocks Up!

When things got you down
and you got a perma-frown it’s

‘Tocks Up!
(bird) ‘Tocks Up!

When everything sucks
and your pockets have no bucks it’s

‘Tocks Up!
‘Tocks Up!

When you sleep through the alarm
and Grandpa bought the farm it’s

‘Tocks Up!
(in this case bird) ‘Tocks Up!

Tocksup
Sing it with me, People! (and William B.T.!)

I’m Getting Too Old for this Cliché

When a sassy streetwise crow teams up with a gruff by-the-book cat, the fur, feathers — and bullets — fly fast and furious! Damien Bleargh and Rick Nickerson are… Cray-Cray and McSteele, coming this fall to Fox!

The Picture of Dorian Gray’s Somewhat Gullible Cousin, Clucky

“That artist ripped me off! Instead of a portrait that ages in my place, the portrait stays the same, and I’m getting wrinkly!”


From Melbourne, Australia, Joanna W. writes: “Meet Chook Chook, the bossy hen who came to live with us last year (seriously, she just walked in the door one Saturday morning). She is a top chick and is the boss of everyone. It’s a tea-towel that a friend brought back from the US as a gift for Chook Chook – she picked it up at a stall in Delaware and thought the chicken looked familiar (yes, our friends bring back souvenirs for our pets but not us). As soon as we hung it up, Chook Chook made a beeline to it and couldn’t quite figure out who the handsome bird was.”

“Orphaned baby ducklings don’t do well on their own so when they arrive at the California Wildlife Center, they’re placed in an incubator with a substitute mom – a feather duster! It sure helped comfort this little one.” -Kim B. from Coast and Canyon Wildlife.

And They’re Off!

Dizzy Lizzy is off to a fast start with Twirly Whirly a close second! Here comes Spinny Spinny on the inside followed by Merry Go Round! Dizzy Lizzy is trailing and Twirly Whirly has dropped out!
