So You Wanna Join the Spacing Guild, Eh?

Ya got moxie, kid — I like that. Yep, start ’em early, that’s what I say. It’s a great career if you can stick it out. You’re gonna want to start hitting the spice now, of course, and enroll in space-folding lessons…

It Looks So Easy in the Movies

“(… as we join Indiana Jones, he find himself surrounded by the savage Whitebird Tribe of the Kalahari! Deftly, our hero takes out his bullwhip, and with a mighty crack, he…  er, he… whoa, kinda hard to control this thing…)”

(And try not to crack up.)

Gorilla Your Dreams

Hello, ladies. It is I, Shabani. It is said that Shabani is handsome. Very handsome. Women come to see Shabani at the zoo where Shabani lives. The piercing, thoughtful gaze of Shabani flutters their hearts. Or rustles their jimmies. One of those. Shabani is not sure.

But the women know Shabani is not just handsome. Shabani is kind. Shabani cares for his children. Shabani loves children. They are delicious.

Shabani is a 18 year old male gorilla at Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Garden. The "handsome" gorilla is super popular with young ladies and families. Zoo officials tell CNN that he got the stardom after the netizens started to tweeting and FBing about his handsome photo used for its spring festival posters in April.

Alas, the women, they cannot know Shabani’s heart. Shabani is a riddle, wrapped in an enigma, stuffed into a banana only Shabani can peel. Shabani is distant. Lonely. Shabani can only refer to himself in the third person. That is how lonely he is.

If You See the Cabana Boy, I’d Like an Ouzo

Meet Argyro, a Mediterranean monk seal who’s made herself right at home on the beach at Samos Island in Greece. According to Reddit and this article (which is Greek to us), Argyro crawled up one day and flopped into a beach chair, which has now been, ahem, sealed off just for her use.

Father’s Day Salute To The Seahorse

Let’s all give it up for the male seahorse. He’s the only species on the planet in which the male carries the babies.

Oh yeah, AND he can get knocked up again within 24 hours of giving birf. Schweet.

Like I Ain’t Sweatin’ Enough Already

Yeah, I like being a turtle OK. Shell keeps the rain off, kinda handy. Plenty of food right there at ground level, just help yourself. And of course, y’always know the way home, heh heh — boy, I hear that one enough times. Only complaint, really, this the hot part of the year ain’t the best time to be born wearing a turtleneck sweater.
