Animal abuse? The best day of this tiny hamster’s life? Hard to say! Either way, someone had the wherewithal to make a pile of itty-bitty, hamster-sized hot dogs and feed them to one lucky rodent, racing against the clock with Takeru Kobayashi, competitive eater and Guiness world record holder for the most hot dog noshed. On July 4th, 2014, Kobayashi set a new record by eating 113 bunless hot dogs in 10 minutes — but how does he hold up against this little guy? [YouTube]
Being a corgi is stressful. Running around on those short legs, wondering what kind of kibble you’ll be fed, and being the internet’s favorite dog would stress anyone out. It’s a rough life, but as this blissed-out puppy would tell you, massages make it all better.
After Ruuxa the cheetah cub was rejected by his mother, zookeepers at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park paired him up with Raina, a Rhodesian ridgeback puppy. Their friendship was set up as part of the zoo’s animal ambassador program, which creates unlikely bonds between different critters. And it worked: the new buds are now over three months old and exploring new parts of the park together. They’re being raised alongside each other to create a special bond, with Raina helping Ruuxa feel relaxed in stressful settings. Some of their play fighting is training for Ruuxa to become part of the park’s Cheetah Run experience — and it’s pretty darn cute. [NBC]
There aren’t enough songs about blowjobs, that’s what I always say. So, for anyone who has never given a blowjob before — be you a straight male, a gay woman, or a member of the Duggar family — here are silly songstresses Garfunkel and Oates to explain exactly what goes through one’s mind during a beej. But I’m warning you: the ending is definitely NSF getting in the mood. [YouTube]
Bonedigger, a disabled lion at G.W. Exotic Animal Park in Oklahoma, has made some unlikely BFFs in his zookeeper, John Reinke, and a Dachshund named Milo. The lion was born with a metabolic bone disease, leaving him mildly disabled in his front legs. Reinke, who is himself disabled, personally raised the lion and formed a closed relationship with him. The big cat used to live in his home, where he bottle fed him until he was too big to live indoors any longer. At 500 lbs., Bonedigger looms over both Reinke and his tiny canine friend Milo, but that hasn’t scared the pup one bit over the course of their five-year friendship. Several other Dachshunds who live at the park have joined Milo in comforting the lion, providing lots of cuddles and playtime for the cat. Reinke told the Daily Mail, “Milo does his best to copy Bonedigger when the lion tries puffing to communicate with other lions in the park…Bonedigger’s like a dog and when he hasn’t seen me for ages he gets all excited and runs up to me.” I don’t know about you, but this animal park sounds like my personal heaven.
