An itch impossible to scratch

Go get ’em, Plinky McEyecapsules!

Michelle F., you know we love this mortal sin in particular.


Oh bring it ON, Baby Macaque

We’re tough—we’ve seen this all before.

Sure—curl ALL your paws in at once. Just go right ahead. We can TAKE IT.

Those little nubbular ears? No problem, we can handle that toooo. [stops self while reaching out for a nom]

Oh and the eye capsules? piece of cake. [sound of twig snapping]

Finally, a zoo that understands the evil power of otters

People, the Minnesota Zoo gets it. Finally a reputable establishment that understands the evil, evil powers that otters have over just about every other living creature! They simply cannot be stopped.


Washing washing ALWAYS WASHING, Alie S.!


Hmmm, let me think. What is the NEXT BEST THING to a warm powsche?

Warm laundry with Country Fresh scent that’s what.

Pass the bong

Oh, a bonche of typical McGrapersons—nothing new here, right? Wait—one of the McGrapersons is LOOKING BACK AT ME, OMG



p.s. Remember this; "A McGrapersons, I MUST HAVE EET!" ?

“Pudu”—sounds like a short name for a Hollywood couple

Um, "Pudu"?! I LOVE IT when new species of animals come out of the woodwork to kill us with their adorabuhlness!

Have you ever HEARD of a "Pudu"? Even the name is prosh. Here is a pair o’ pudus at the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle.


And get a load of the close-up, People. You can’t handle the Pudu.


Libbie M., you win some kind of C.O. award for bringing this new animal to our attensche.

Smiling bumblebee with a yellow fro

This guy is looking good. The smile, the fro, the one shoulder up.

He needs to make little tiny "guns" with his "hands" like "Heeeeeey Ladieeeez, who wants a honey cocktail? It’s on me"

General Ottspital

These otters are tewtelly posing for their daytime soap opera open credits.

With their partially evil make-up, they are perfect for the job.

"Dr. Hamilton, I betrayed you with Tyler, and I’d DO IT AGAIN!" [middle otter rushes off to nurses station]

Er, something, Jen M.

…Sleeping in ’til 1PM


Anne E., let’s send them all to boarding school pronto.

Karma at the Dumpster

OK, sidenote, there used to be these raccoons that would show up whenever we ate dinner outside. We called them: "Señor and Señora Rabies".

The guy that saves this dumpster diving raccoon would prolly frown upon those names.

Oh, and the Natalie Merchant accompanyment must be stopped, Destiny M. It’s sooooo Green Day at your Graduation for crying out loud.
