It’s Tough Being a Kid, Mom…

All the bigger kids laugh at me, just because I’m the smallest. They make fun of my wobbly legs, my squeaky voice…

Look at them over there — you can tell they’re plotting against me all the time.

Shouldn’t Her Name Be “Wrinkles” Instead?

Earlier today we mentioned it’s National Farm Animals Day. Winkles the Shar-Pei cross wanted to get in on the act, too.

From Cuteporter Adam C.: “I went and spent a good half day filming ‘Winkles’ the farm puppeh! Very hard to keep up with but I think you’ll agree she is pretty cute!! She lives at Serendipity Farm which is a rescue farm Down Under for unwanted livestock animals. (How cool is that btw?)

[Very cool. -Ed]

Renee L. wants readers to know, “This little guy was born this morning, along with two other pygmy goats at Flamig Farm in West Simsbury, CT. Photo credit to Karyn Cordner.”

Those TPS Reports Will Have to Wait

Really needed to address a complexity of very important work issues requiring immediate attention and resolve today, and then some kid with floppy ears comes along.

“This is Diva, the little goat with a big personality.”, says Tracy R., “It is rare to get a shot of her with her mouth shut!”

Of Course, An Australian PigDog!

It appears that The Aussie Porker In Question, AKA “Miss Pig,” thinks she’s….a dog. According to The Telegraph, “She eats with the dogs, hops into bed with them and makes all sorts of noises that are more like a dog.”

That’s all well and good, but how ’bout the kangaroo?

And Now, a Few Quick Impressions

First up, I’d like to do my impression of a chicken… Thank you.

Next, I’d like to do Piers Morgan trying to interview a chicken, but finding it hard to get a word in edgewise… Thank you, thank you very much.

And finally, you know those ancient monks who used to take vows of silence? You ever wonder what would happen if one of them got into a frank exchange of views with a chicken? I think it might go something like this…
