Meanwhile, at Bear Automotive…

ncVI3Well, your distributor cap is a little cracked, and your timing belt and spark plugs need replacing.

I should be able to have it back to you by tomorrow, if I can get the parts, that is.

Will that be cash, Robin C. — or do you want us to bill you? (pffft, snort, giggle.)

Friday Haiku

Thirty-six degrees,
Easy, clear trajectory.
I could crap on that.
- Argyle Donkeypants

Sharp talons and beak
Slice cleanly, and blue blood flows.
Alas, just a dream.

Season? In haiku?
I can’t deal with the pressure!
Form’s too hard. (Winter)
- Von Zeppelin

On Thanksgiving Day
Nothing says let us give thanks
Like a Smurf balloon
- Daytime Deb

Complicated day
I click on CO and smile,
a moment’s respite.
- Fluffy

3-week old flamingo falling asleep

1. Wow, look at those stilt legs!
2. This musak really helps the storyline [shifty eyes]
3. This video leaves us with the eternal question—did he ever strike a balance?

Hey Dalvenjah F., what’s better than counting sheep? CuteThingsFallingAsleep.org.

Mr. Squawkie goes for a walkie!

“Check what I found when I got home this evening – his dad was sitting on top of my neighbour’s car looking very disapproving indeed so I waited till they’d gone off for chips before i went to take these shots. He’s like a fluffy nubbin on a stick (or two, to be precise) – like those things people clean their ears with.

He also benefits from extreme beauty close-ups – you know what i’m talking about ;D I fear he shall not last the night but he might stay alive in our hearts for ever more if you post him.. and you never posted pictures of my dog, and this little dewd is even cuter (shhh!! don’t say it out loud!) so if you don’t post this I’ll KNOW it’s personal….”

There’s thrifty, and then there’s just cheap, Janet B.

Look! Up in the Sky!

It’s a bird … on a bird!  Yes, it’s time once again for the thrilling adventures of Gaylord, The Wonder Crow, atop his trusty vulture Dagmar as they fight a never-ending crusade against improper grocery bagging practices! Whenever bags are filled past rated load limits, wherever bread is crushed beneath cantaloupes and detergent boxes, Gaylord and Dagmar are there to save the day!

Sorry, Catherine — all the good superhero gigs were taken.

Owlette enjoys ear scratch!

No, that is not a typo. It’s a lil’ owl who loooooooves a good scratch. He even has a happy little cackle and his eyes roll back like Shark week. This whole scene belongs in a Japanese video game check it:
