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.

Bacon: Saved!

Just when you thought the interspecies snorgling action could go no further, we witness the very finest Mail Online has to offer. The tiniest bacon:

Alpaca If I Want’a

Back on January 31st of 2007, we busted these two in flagrante delicious. Now researched, resized, and recidivindicated for 2009.

Smooosh

Nice McSmooshersons, Christina P…

Sea Porker

Vince, by way of our friends at National Geographic Traveler, captured this ultra-rare encounter with the fabled Sea Pig.

Out looking for a mid-afternoon snack, the sea pig was heard to remark, “you wouldn’t believe how buoyant I am…”

Would you mind rubbing this sand off my snout...

SNOUT-HANCE!

Thanks for the tip, Chief Researcher Marilyn T. Vince L. took this shot near a small key famous for the “swimming pigs.” To capture this clear image Vince said, “I had to lure this pig into an undisturbed area with its favorite food: fresh watermelon.”

Squealing Home

It’s baseball season, and each year, the Saint Paul Saintsbullpen gets a visitor from the pigpen.  This year it’s a piglet named Slumhog Millionaire, from a litter born at the Minnesota Zoo.  Slumhog joins the Saints’ past pantheon of punny porcines, including Boarack Ohama, Notorious P.I.G., and (forgive us) Kevin Bacon.

Calibrating the Acoustic Pigometer

As many of you audiophiles know, the acoustic pigometer is one of the most precise and sensitive pieces of sound-measurement equipment on the market, and as such requires extensive calibration before use.  Let’s listen to how it’s done:

Cows II: This Time, It’s Snorglable

Sometimes that cow, she looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a cow… she’s got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll’s eyes. When she comes at ya, doesn’t seem to be living… until she licks ya with that soft pink tongue and then… ah, then you hear that terrible high-pitched squee-in’…
