A very sleepy meerkat at the a zoo in Dortmund, Germany was caught trying and failing miserably to keep his eyes open. This is exactly what happens to me every single time I start to watch a movie on Netflix after the late hour of 9p.m. I’m out like a light, even though when my boyfriend calls me out on it, I insist that I am WIDE AWAKE. A word of advice: don’t fight it, guy. Denial only makes you more tired. Night, night. [Daily Picks & Flicks]
They’re really stepping up their game for Puppy Bowl X. There won’t be a mass wedding officiated by Queen Latifah (as far as I know), but there will be aerial coverage done by some sort of fluffy rodents, penguin cheerleaders and a half-time performance by Keyboard Cat!
You can check out the in this gallery and pick your favorite pooches. I feel like Alvin the Poodle has that MCP (Most Cuddlable Puppy) look about him. I guess we’ll just have to wait until game day and see who takes the title. Check out a preview of all the growling, scampering and sportsmanship ahead, after the jump! [Animal Planet] Keep reading »
I’m not one for rodents, but I can get behind the pygmy jerboa, the world’s smallest mouse thingy. Why? Because it’s weird, it has a decent fluff-to-face ratio and if you replace its tail with an inspirational message, you’ve basically got a weepul come to life. If you don’t know what a weepul is, it’s a cotton ball with googley eyes that children in the ’80s sold cheese logs, sausage and wrapping paper to win every year. We worked so hard for those weepuls. Why? [Huffington Post]
While on a hunting trip near Adair, Oklahoma, Andrew Rice spotted a “fucking kangaroooooooo” and posted the video on his Facebook page. Of course, it’s insane to see a random kangaroo hopping around the middle of the United States and Rice’s reaction — equal parts crazy excitement and wondering “what the crap” was going on — helped the video go viral. Don’t worry about the kangaroo, after Rice’s sighting, it was discovered that the animal had escaped from a private owner who recaptured it unharmed Monday afternoon. I would like to see this video get autotuned. [Daily Pics And Flicks]
If these micro piglets can take time out of their holiday schedule do some exercise, you can certainly motivate to go on a slow-paced, post-Thanksgiving walk around the block with your family (minus the squealing). [Daily Picks And Flicks]
It’s painful (literally) to watch baby goat Charlotte hate on her own reflection by headbutting herself repetitively. Well, maybe she thinks it’s another goat in there and she’s telling it to fuck off. Either way, we’ve all been there. Especially on Monday mornings. [Buzzfeed]
Sometimes the internet just nails it. Thank you, YouTube user Yababoon Works, whoever you are, for my early favorite for Best Viral Video Of 2013. From now until forever, use the “Cotton-Eyed Joe” flamingo to hit the reset button on your brain. Beware: there’s a good chance this song will be stuck in your head for days. If that happens, just spin it out. [Huffintgton Post]
