Blood-Thirsty Hounds Appreciate Cuteness Too

UK’s Mail Online is reporting a pack of blood-thirsty hounds decided to spare the life of Mr. FawnPants here. In fact, the fawn, known as "Bam Bam" trots along happily with the 60-dog pack and huntsman on their daily walk.

The fawn fits in perfectly as he is the same size as the hounds, and seems to enjoy hanging out with the pack, much to the complete surprise of onlookers!

Apparently, Bam Bam’s Momma abandonned him right near the huntsman’s house, most likely scared off by the dogs. Since then, Bam Bam has received his daily milk and seems quite content.

Bam Bam will be rehomed in a deer sanctuary next year. More pics and more on this story here.

Ralph Makes a Break for It

9:47 PM: 

"Ah HAH!  The others are sleeping — now is my perfect opportunity to scale these walls to FREEDOM!"

11:19 PM: 

"YES!  Almost halfway to the top now, and then it’s goodbye to this provincial life — and hello to adventure!"

2:31 AM: 

"This box is no place for a wayfaring vagabond such as I!  Just a few inches more, and the open road awaits!"

Friday: 

"The casinos of Monte Carlo! (ehn!) The vibrant culture of London and New York! (ungh!) The pristine sands of Cabo San Lucas!"

2012: 'Ah, I can taste the mojitos now...'

The Amazing Remote-Control Otters!

OK, for this next trick, you need to get a remote-control device.  TV, stereo, it doesn’t really matter, as long as it has a really big button on it.  Go ahead, we’ll wait. (elevator music, dum dee dum…)  Got it?  Now, incredible as this may sound, your remote control will let you switch off these otters’ brains all at once.  Start the video, and get ready to push the really big button … right … about …

(00:24) … now.  Was that cool or what?!
Wait, we’re gonna do it again.  On your mark … get set …

(00:36) … click.

Wow, Philip K., that was totally (click) …

… awesome.
