Adorable baby goats in coats, eating roses! »
COME ON! You’ve got to be kidding me. This is like Anne Geddes-multiplied-by-baby-unicorns-cute. These little goats in coats come to us from Edgar’s Mission in Australia. Are you totally in love?
OMG how much do I need a purse goat?! I’ll feed him roses all the live long day.
These five little orphans made their way to Edgar’s Mission and now they are struggling to see humans as kind and caring, instead of mommy-stealers.
You can sponsor these five guys if you are so inclined, just head over to their page!
Turtles! Acting out emoticon faces! It’s awesome because turtles are the best, and now whenever anyone puts a stupid emoticon face in a lame thing they write to you, you can just go ahead and imagine one of these little guys instead! YAY!
He looks like a pissed-off heart.
Fat cat tip: sexy boudoir photos of
yourselffat cats are a great last-minute gift idea.
Bear killing exposed, thanks to Freedom of Information Act »
[Can’t see the video? Watch it on vegansaurus.com]
This is disturbing. Some country music bro killed a tame and adorable bear named Cubby, making a big to-do about his “wildlife” hunt. There was a whole court case about it and Troy Gentry, the bro in question, was fined $15,000 for falsely registering the kill (got to righteously register those kills, bro!). What makes the case crazier, the organization Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) fought the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for THREE YEARS to get the footage of the “hunt” released. Gentry pleaded guilty in 2006 but SHARK’s video JUST came out last week. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the footage was eventually released because, as the lead attorney for SHARK said, “The judge ruled that the ‘privacy interests were quite minimal’ because portions of the video were ‘already shown on national television, and they had planned to use it for a country video.’” Privacy shmivacy d-bag.
God bless the Freedom of Information Act and WTF? Who kills a bear named CUBBY? Cubby (well, Cubbi) was the adorable young Gummi Bear in the best cartoon of all time! Before being murdered, this Cubby was a wildlife “model” that the owner would rent out for wildlife photography. It’s old news that wildlife photography is a total joke, but it’s still crazy. How lame is it to rent “wild” animals and fake pictures? A: SO LAME. Goddamn liars! Still, why did the owner retire Cubby and let Gentry murder him? Because the bear developed dental problems. Are you joking with me? This is what happens with “working” animals: they get exploited their whole lives and then once they need something, KA-POW! Arrow to the lung.

Decorating dog cones is funny! I can’t believe this hasn’t become an internet meme yet. Wait for it…
Until then, enjoy this photo from local dog walker Lucia Rose’s flickr. Her dog photos are off the hook, including some of my very own little lady, Hazel (LOOK AT THAT FACE). Actually, Hazel is her own woman so please don’t tell her I said that. Hazel, if you read this, YOU’RE THE BOSS. I’ll stop down now.
A pit bull doing a head stand STFU I LOVE YOU. The video was taken at Oakland Animal Services (aka, THE POUND) but don’t worry, Newman (yes, that is his name! SO CUTE!) was adopted! GO ON, SIR! Read more about Newman on BadRap because you want to.
Wish I knew the source, but this comes to us unattributed. LOOK AT THOSE FEET.
I’m taking a food and nutrition class this semester, one of those faux-science classes they make up because English majors can’t handle anything with real answers and logical thought. We still haven’t gotten to the fun food part because first we have to learn borrrrring chemistry. It’s not as entertaining as Alton Brown’s Good Eats!
But anyway, I had to reacquaint myself with the periodic table. If only it were as cute as these guys!
Baby platypus, I don’t even know what to do with you.
