This morning on the subway, I couldn’t stop staring at the woman seated across from me. She’s one of those people who’s stunning, but you can’t figure out exactly what makes them so pleasing to look at. And then I solved the mystery—she was blond, I think naturally, but had super dark brown eyes. It’s a combination that’s pretty unusual, genetically speaking.

Until then, I can dream. After the jump, Frisky staffers share their fantasy pets. If time, money, landlords, and reality were of no consequence, what would yours be?
“The craziest thing about me? Uh, I don’t know … I’ve done a couple murders. I’ve murdered a couple of people. Bank robbery stuff.”
—Zach Galifiniakis in response to the question “What’s the craziest thing about you?” from reporter Maria Sallas. Well, I guess we know where Zach’s funny comes from … his criminal past. The best part is that Maria doesn’t even bat one of her fake eyelashes. I’m kind of obsessed with Maria actually. Watch the entire interview here. Keep reading »
