New Species Discovered!

Microbiologists at the Floofman Laboratories (FLab) have revealed a new form of microscopic life, which they are calling the Pugbug (wrinklius blorpulii). Shown here in this 1000X magnified photo, the Pugbug is a parasitic organism that attaches itself to a host and demands constant belly rubs and walkies.

From Hell’s Heart, I Squeak at Thee

Gentle reader, beware! The defensive shriek of the Namaqua rain frog (breviceps namaquensis), captured in this video by YouTuber Dean Boshoff, is so shrill, so piercing, that 200-pound grown men have filled their ears with cement to escape its otherworldly cry! Listen for yourself — if you dare!

So, We Took The Mercedes To Argentina…

We get photos from all over the world, being a GLOBAL INTERWEBS PHENOMENON and all. This email just rolled in from waaaay down they-ah in Argenteeena.

“Hi!! My name is Mercedes M., I’m from Argentina. I took this pictures last December at the province of Chubut, in the Argentinean Patagonia. The penguins are at Punta Tombo, a protected area, and the sea elephants are at Punta Ninfas, that is not protected yet, so you can go there and be with them (just crossing the fingers so no one destroy the place). Love your site, I’ve been following it for years now and is the only medicine for blue moments. Love the comments over the picture!!”

Cough Due to Cold?

Let me get you a tissue.


Get plenty of rest. May I recommend sleeping underneath something? The pressure is quite nice for a congested face.


Corndogs are a cure-all. They certainly make me feel better.


And by popular demand, we bring you TOOF-HANCE™


Penelope Pickles is a little helper! Melissa D. S. says, “Her favorite things are corndogs and naps. You can’t leave your plate idle with her around.” You can follow Penelope on the Facebooks.
