No, Really, I Work Here

Mabel and the Evil Penguin

When she was a little girl, Mabel Flossenglottner had an imaginary friend, a penguin she called Mr. Flappy.  She would run and play with him all day long, and share her most private thoughts.  In return, Mr. Flappy would tell Mabel to … do things.

In Just 30 Seconds, You Will Utterly Despise The New York Lottery

Oh sure, it gets off to a promising start, but just you wait: In mere moments, you will yearn for a plague of locusts to blacken the skies above their offices, and to hear the wailing and lamentations of their Marketing executives.

Wait for it… Wa-a-a-a-ait for it…

But sender-inner S.A. thought it was cute, so we’ll let them live.

Rubber Duckie, You’re So Huge

Don’t tell Ernie, but someone zapped his favorite tubbie toy (or our mascot) with the Giganto-Ray and sent it on a goodwill tour.  Hatched by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman, this 9.5m tall by 11m long rubber duck has been spotted in Europe, Japan, and Brazil.  More photos here, and don’t miss the video below.

Ode to a Day Without Cats

A Day Without Cats? Can this be?
We must stop this catastrophe!

2435316564_1573c1e1a4_o

Search everywhere, from up to down,
And don’t give up until they’re found!

We’ll catacomb the countryside
To find out where our kitties hide.

Until we thwart this plan demonic
We’ll search until we’re catatonic!

We love to hug and chase them so,
Please, Internet, don’t erase them! No!

Oh, heed our plaintive caterwaul,
Or life will be no fun at all.
