Revenge Is a Dish Best Served With Puréed Squash and a Teething Biscuit

"So, you were going to pan-fry me in butter, were you?  Well, let’s see how you taste with some mashed ‘nanas, washed down with a sippy cup full of Juicy Juice, fuzzball!"

Gotta catch me first, Mister Can't-Roll-Over-Yet!

I see he’s already started on the tail, Alison G.

Gibbon Pin Up!

Those elongated arms!

That look in your close-together eyes!



Kathryn S. saw this gibbon monkeh striking a pose at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Pure redonkulousness.

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.


An’a one, an’a two, Anna L.

The Year In Cute: Chill!

Yes, 2008 was a nerve-wracking year. But time after time, the stars of Cute Overload taught us that life works best when you just lie back and relax.  So step away from the computer for a while…

You don't REALLY need to check e-mail every 2.63 minutes, do you?

…maybe grab a bite to eat…

Mmmm, Puppy Chow -- My favorarlghgfthraghthphfthh (zzzzzzzzzzzzz)

…and just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Stewardess?  Don't wake me up until we land, mmmkay?

See? You’re feeling relaxed already. There is so much we can learn from Teh Qte. [Yoda voice]

♫ Lulabye, and good night... ♫

Just ask RPHilli, Lindsay J., Courtney, and Scarlette R.—they’ll tell ya.

Decisions, Decisions…

("Let me think… Pan-fried in butter, with shallots and garlic?  No, I need to watch the cholesterol… Grilled, perhaps, with a lemon, pepper and herb rubbing?  Mmm, probably too stringy for that… Well, there’s always the crock-pot…")

Yes, folks, it's a baby. Remain calm, breathe normally ...

You didn’t see this post, Dan K. It never happened.

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.

Welll THAT’S a relief. I was worried I would have to forgo the primate action for my next promo. [wiping brow] See Banana for more details (for your promotional needs). You heard me;

And Now, Previews of Coming Attractions

It strikes without warning, wreaking terrible terror too terrifyingly torturous to tolerate!  What is it? And what does it crave, this creeping horror, this unearthly ungulate, striking fear into the hearts of all who bear witness?

M-U-U-U-U-U-U-S-S-S-S-T ...

When it hunts you — YOU DARE NOT MOVE! When it finds you — YOU DARE NOT BREATHE! Nothing in the depths of your darkest nightmares can prepare you for the UNSTOPPABLE EVIL!!!

... H-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-V-E ...

There is no escape from … THE ATTACK OF THE FIFTY-FOOT TONGUE!

... B-R-R-R-R-R-E-E-E-E-E-E-E-A-A-A-A-A-A-A-D!!!

A Morgan R. production, starring Clifton Flange, Loretta Trashsmasher and “Tex” McGee as Cardinal Richelieu.  Rated [R] for Redonkulous.  Coming soon to this theater!

Freshly-borned Capuchin is a skosh grumpy

This one-day-old baby Capuchin monkeh is all:

"It is ENTIRELY too bright out here! Turn out the lights! Get me a sleep mask, SOMETHING! OMG PEOPLE!"

Work That Mistletoe, Sister!

All right, ladies!  The Yuletide season is upon us, and that means plenty of holiday parties with cute guys, dark hallways — and lots and lots of mistletoe!  Keep your lips lively this Christmas with these time-honored mistle-tips:

  • Be casual.  Don’t stand directly under the mistletoe; that looks desperate.  Stand just enough to one side so that you look like you just happen to be there.
  • Adopt a mysterious, far-away gaze, as if you were standing alone on a moonlit shore, yearning for your lover on the far horizon.
  • Purse your lips ever so slightly — not too much to be obvious, but enough to encourage him to make that first move.


Take me now, and we will fly as one to a realm of bliss and enchantment.



Thanks to the oh-so-kissable Ash for the instructional photos.
