Asshole Monkey Steals Lollipop From A Puppy

I hate it when I’m sitting on the grass, trying to enjoy a lollipop and a monkey comes along and steals it. Even worse is when the monkey steals my lollipop and then hits me in the face with it. That’s so fucked up! Well, at least this puppy is getting a lesson in sharing…

Frisky Q&A: Discussing The 2013 Cicada Invasion With My Dad, A Man Who Loves Cicadas

As you probably know by now, the cicadas are coming. Thirty billion cicadas, to be exact, are poised to swarm the northeastern United States pretty much any day now after spending the past 17 years underground. Many of my east coast friends have already vowed to stay inside for four to six weeks while the cicada…

7 Animal Mommies And Babies!

Is there anything sweeter than animal moms snuggling their babies? Even if you and your mom don’t have the most Hallmark of relationships, your heart melts into a big mushy puddle when you see a mommy dog/goat/wildebeest/whatever giving her newborn babe a bath with her tongue. Yeah, her own tongue. The animal kingdom is intense.

PETA Tries To Convert Us To Veganism With A Supercut Of Animals Having Sex

Vegans have a bigger sexual appetite! That’s PETA’s new ploy to get us to stop eating/wearing/using animal products. And how do they illustrate their point? Oh, with a supercut of wild animals fucking set to the tune of “Teddy Bear’s Picnic.” I certainly enjoyed PETA’s “Do It Like They Do” ad way more than the…

Is Lil Bub Safe In The Hands Of Robert De Niro?

Don’t get me wrong, I am not about to complain about this choice photograph of Robert De Niro clutching Lil Bub at the Tribeca Film Festival Directors Brunch. However. As an animal lover, I do have my concerns that Bub’s saturation level has passed the point of Internet sensation and entered exploitation territory. Bub i…

Let Baby Hedgehog Vs. T-Shirt Soothe Your Soul

How this baby hedgehog feels wrestling this t-shirt is pretty much exactly how I felt about this week. I just kept chewing and chewing and chewing and the t-shirt wouldn’t give. It’s been a crappy one but it’s almost over. In the end, the baby hedgehog prevails, I think. At least that’s the way I’m…

If People Ate Like Animals, Dinner Would Be More Entertaining

I’ve been watching this “How Animals Eat Their Food” video non-stop this week and wondering why it didn’t occur to me to make this video first. It should have because I’ve been eating like a flamingo since 1989 to annoy my brother (minus the pink unitard). All this time I could have been entertaining the…

An Open Letter To Whoever Stole A Goat From A Petting Zoo And Took It To A Bar At 1:30 AM

Dear Goat Thief,

Listen, I get it. There is nary a time when I watch a funny goat video or walk by the urban goat sanctuary by my house (I live in Portland) and don’t plot a way to steal the adorable goats and make them my pets. My eventual life goal i…
