He Got Game…Until His Ma Showed

Hey, Sweets. I like you; you like me. I’d like to take you to a movie…

Oh. Well, I think that’s R-Rated, so my Ma is going to have to come with us…

That’s gonna be one long date, Dr. Mary .

Her Little Helper was a Bit of an Alarmist

Whoa lady, if you’re about to do what I think you’re about to do, then I can tell you with complete certainty that things will never be the same. You’re about to ruin everything, and I’m sorry, but I absolutely cannot allow you to put that wooden cutting board through the dishwasher.

I thought Palmolive was green, Larissa M.

And the Stork Flew Away with a Hernia

There’s a new 147-pound addition at Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay, FL!

A baby reticulated giraffe was born just days ago to mom Teesa and dad Sterling. The calf will stay with mom in an area away from guest view so the baby can be closely monitored to ensure that the newborn is nursing and growing properly. After a few months, the duo will join the other animals on the Serengeti Plain, where they will surely experience a lot of rubbernecking.

As always, thanks for the updates, Nick G.

THIS JUST IN: A Dik-Dik schnozzle

Dik-Diks are African mini hoofers who run around the plains delighting everyone who sees them. I hadn’t noticed before, but they also have spectacular little Tapir-like schnozzles! Check it!

Ode to a Muskox

This steadfast young fellow’s a muskox calf,
His mama’s nearby, so best not point and laugh.
He lives in Alaska, on a farm up in Palmer,
Where the winters are cold but the summers are calmer.

His farm needs donations, that’s what Esther cautions,
For the muskox is hungry and eats such big portions.
So visit the site, toss some bucks in their box,
Then drive up this summer and meet a muskox!

Some Enchanted Morning

The thing that’s really annoying about animated movies is how they completely mislead the public. Who’s going to believe that animals like kitties & deer are the greatest pals? It’s totally unrealistic!

The above cat (Prince Purrsalot?) gets a very special visit almost every morning from his very dear best friend (Lord Kissyface). Wow, Harrisburg, PA is such a magical place!

Thanks to Sue P. for forwarding the photos.

Pigsaw Puzzle

Just a few pieces left to go…

I need a bit of pig for the upper right corner…

and then I’m missing some pig on the left side…

well, I guess it’s all pig, really.

Minimum Horse, Maximum Horseplay

Check out Stuart Little, a baby miniature horse practicing soccer, and… saaay, I just had an idea:  What if there was a game, kinda like soccer, but it had horses in it, and they ran around a field knocking a ball back and forth?

Naaah, it’d never catch on.

And if we had a pool, Bridget W., we could play water polo!

Don’t Play With Your Food! (Or Do.)

Normally, if you’re a healthy, red-blooded cheetah, a nice juicy impala is the “runs really fast and goes ‘boing!’ ” part of this good-for-you breakfast.  But what if you’re not very hungry at the moment?  Then he’s your new playmate!

That’s what photographer Michel Denis-Huot discovered in these amazing shots for the Daily Mail.  Already tired from hunting, the cheetahs patted and nuzzled the impala for about 15 minutes…

… and, even more amazingly, the impala nuzzled back …

… before remembering that it was food and scampering away.
