Sender-inner Jessica L. writes: “Okay, here’s a strange one for you. But every time I look at these pictures I think how cute it is, so I thought I’d send it on in. It is a turkey made out of a pine cone who has clearly befriended a sprouted onion. Seriously, check it out. Or maybe I’m just strange.”

[shifty eyes] Thanks… [looks over shoulder]

Oh hey, I found the onions.

Yeah, it’s strange. But in a good butter duck or tree sweater way.

Behold a gaggle of color-coded Peeps riding multi-colored horses.

Even stranger is the text accompanying the submission: “These little guys deserve fun too.”

Um. OK. [shifty eyes in disbelief]

What’s even stranger? This place is in Taiwan, not Japan! What’s up with that. Various grossatating pics via Too Much Free Time and the Uni-Resort site in Hsinchu, Taiwan.

Tired of Fast Food?

Looking for an alternative to the fast pace of fast food?  Then bring your appetite — and a couple of hours — down to Tortoise Burger, where your meal crawls right to your table.  Have it your way — eventually.

This looks 'shopped.  I can tell from the lettuce...

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)

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

Stu G. and Chiku the African Grey enjoyed the Thanksgiving Day Parade 2009 2008 and snapped this beaut.

The Adventures of “My Milk Toof”

You must go check out this site called “My Milk Toof” with stories and photos from Inhae Renee Lee, a Berkeley artist.

Inhae imagines her lost baby teef come home after years of living with the tooth fairy. Now, they’re adjusting to their new life with her. She tells their stories like caring for wilting plants, taking baths:

and (of course) teething.

I’m Completely Useless Until I’ve Had My Morning Cup of Monkey
