I reached for a cotton ball and got this instead

How do you expect me to clean my face with this?

This high BEF was brought to you by K. Akagami.

May I take your order?

Yeah. I’d like the sushi to start… a banana chip on the side


And the Air USA Meal for an entrée. Thaaaaaaaaanks.


Thank you, Sweet Laputa! (owner of Kumanoko.)

“Wot? the rabbit?”

This is so Monty Python it’s ridiculous, only this time, it’s a ferret. James W. H., thank you for sending in this delightful photo. For he rest of you; quotes:

Tim:There he is!
King Arthur:Where?
King Arthur:What? Behind the rabbit?
Tim:It *is* the rabbit!
King Arthur:You silly sod!
King Arthur:You got us all worked up!
Tim:Well, that’s no ordinary rabbit.
King Arthur:Ohh.
Tim:That’s the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on!
Sir Robin:You tit! I soiled my armor I was so scared!
Tim:Look, that rabbit’s got a vicious streak a mile wide! It’s a killer!
Sir Galahad:Get stuffed!
Tim:He’ll do you up a treat, mate.
Sir Galahad:Oh, yeah?
Sir Robin:You mangy Scots git!
Tim:I’m warning you!
Sir Robin:What’s he do? Nibble your bum?
Tim:He’s got huge, sharp… er… He can leap about. Look at the bones!
King Arthur:Go on, Bors. Chop his head off!
Sir Bors:Right! Silly little bleeder. One rabbit stew comin’ right up!


"Well, we’ll not risk another frontal assault. That rabbit’s dynamite."

"I *warned* you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you *knew*, didn’t you? Oh, it’s just a harmless little *bunny*, isn’t it?"



I weel clean you for as long as I like

Would you please look at this poor ferret getting cleaned by a cat. There should be a restraining order. I love the ferret’s paws—like resistance is completely futile. Well, it is.


Bob F.—Gracias.

Back to the Monday grind

That weekend was waaaaaaay to short. Maybe some coffee will wake me up.


Props to Bumpoowilly!

Rule #16—Shoot. Nevermind.

For the longest time, I was planning to do Rule #16: Possums Can Never, Ever, EVER be Cute. I mean, it has ALWAYS been irrefutable—undeniable! Until now.

As my younger sister said as soon as she grew strong enough to beat _me_ up for a change: "Ah! so NOW the TABLES ARE TURNED!"

It’s true. Possums can be cute, and here is the proof, thanks to one Meg C.:


And again in an artful pose, just waiting to be re-created in your Drawing 101 class:


Big props to serg at University of SouthAustralia who posted the original photos that Meg C. found. Schweet.

Japanese anime secrets—REVEALED!

Hold on to your raccoon-furred, tail-swingin’ caps, People, the Cuteness meter just blew up!

Courtesy of Ms. Stephanie R., we present "Ezo Momonga", the flying Japanese squirrel. Apparently every single anime artist in Japan has seen this site, since this little guy is obviously the epitome of all Japanese varmint-esque characters. I mean, look at him!!! And listen to what he’s saying!

[rustling] "I shall swoop into your lives—and CHANGE THEM FOREVER!" [say in Japanese accent]



[jumps off branch] "Ehnn!"


"I shall now BURROW MYSELF INTO YOUR BRAIN and you shall COME VISIT ME DAILY ON THIS SITE!" [cracks a small snack on the tree trunk]

"Oh, yeah."
