Listen Kid, here’s the plan…

"You wheel me over to where the parents are. I’ll distract them with my Tonka truck of adorableness. YOU steal the cookies for us and I’ll meet you back here.

Deal?"

Duck rides shotgun

Here’s the story of Frank and Joe.

Frank is the fast-quacking trucking buddy of construction delivery guy Joe. Joe used to hunt ducks, but got a duck-hunting dog that… wouldn’t. Frank does helpful things like eat bananas on the job, watch Joe deliver stuff, and snorf the ladies. The best part is the "if more people had ducks…" line.

Actually, Sender-Inner Sparky thinks the gosling baby pics are the best part.

Encore Presentayshe: Baby Bun has Cat Mom

Laura W. didn’t see it the first time.

GROANNNN

"Take a good look America!" "Take a good look, WORLD!" and "If THEY can get along, what’s OUR excuse!?"

What do these phrases and "Pack their Derms(?!)" have in common? They can all be heard on this smarm-a-thon CBS News video below. Why does every news bit with an animal have to be so DOGGONE lame?

Everyone and their BROTHER has sent this in, and the reporter’s cheesy stylin’ had kept me from posting it. So, now that you have my caveat. Watch it. I WASH MY HANDS!

I’m washing them again, Johanna S.

P.S. Extra points if you can point out MORE eye-roll-worthy phrases!

Legends of Folk Music, Part Six

From their 1958 debut at the Nosepick Hollow Folk Festival, The Happenin’ Hoedown Hipsters kept audiences’ toes a’tapping with a crowd-pleasing mix of folk standards tinged with modern jazz influences. The 1962-65 lineup, pictured here, included Farquard Mandlebroot, lead beagle and vocals; Stanley Burbleson, coyote and harmonica; Roger "Biff" Burbleson, rhythm beagle and vocals; and Doris McGinty, bass mutt.

THANK YOU, BALTIMORE!

The Year In Cute: Once You Go Walrus, Baby, You Never Go Back

In 2008, all the creatures of the world learned to live and love together in blissful peace and harmony.  Well, except for us, of course, but y’know — we’ve got issues.  Anyway, here are some of the interspeciesly snorglest photos of 2008 to show us how it’s done, and here to help them out is our very special guest star, ladies and gentlemen, Mister Barry White!

Oh my (ow) darling, my (ow) forbidden love (ow) for you will (ow) never die...

I claim this kitty in the name of the Republic of Budgietania!

Man, I HATE it when Uncle Louie comes to visit.

And now it's time to play 'Guess Whose Tongue That Is?'

Melissa A., EXCELLENT MOTION BLURS!

[Say in Pepé le Pew voice] “Ah, my little darling, it is love at first sight, is it not, no?”

"Eef you ‘ave not tried eet, do not knock eet.

I tell you what. You stop resisting me, and I, I will stop resisting you. When have you had a better offer than that?"

"You know, sometimes I ask myself ‘Ees eet worth eet?’ and I answer myself ‘YEEEES! EET EES WORTH EET!’ VIVA L’AMOUR" Mei-Li P.! Pépe le Peu quotes from Big Cartoon Forum.

Helper Mini-horses, parrots and monkehs

Got agoraphobia? Maybe you need a helper monkeh!

Got bi-polar? Maybe you need a calming, talking parrot!

Got blindness? A teeny guide horse may be for you!

The New York Times is reportin’ that unusual service animals are helping folks with unusual disorders.
