"Someone get this fat fuck a carrot"

This bastard tells it like it is, and I like that.

Fuck You, Penguin.

Hey Prairie dog, I didn't realize donuts were native to the grasslands of North America! You're so fat, you make a capybara look like an African pygmy mouse!

Seriously, though, Prairie dog. You are really fat. This makes it very difficult for me, because the fact that your feet aren't touching the ground and your arms are kind of hanging down on your fat folds is fucking cute as shit. Am I supposed to feel bad for you? Is this what you wanted, Prairie dog? Damn you and your scheming ways.

(I believe this is the first item I've ever seen that properly belongs in all three Poor Mojo Blogs: The Newswire, CuteLove 100%, and the 2 Minute Hate.)

Muppet Baby Recipes!

There were two very important yellowed sheets in my mom's recipe box. They were covered in plastic and from a Woman's Day magazine dated 1/8/1985. Baby Fozzie's Dump Cake was THE recipe my sister and I loved and we never grew tired of it. I don't even remember if we bothered to try the other ones (they look kinda gross now). For a while my mom thought she lost them and we were devastated. But o ho ho! We found them.

Bejeweled Wedding Proposal!

I spent the past few weeks working on a version of Bejeweled (her favorite game) on Nintendo DS as a homebrew project. Once it hits a certain score, the screen clears and a ring drops down! Of course afterwards, we did the nice dinner and everything too =)

edit: Just for the record - I wrote the game from scratch!

Save the Cute Prey!

Dr. Greco and Dr. Greco, 8 and 6 respectively, have previously performed surgery on a predator. The wolf had a see-through stomach installed with a zipper for easy access and all teeth extracted to ensure the prey was swallowed whole. (for pics of wolf and contents: click here for flickr photos) The video below is of a recent cute critter rescue.

Alcohol!

Mark Moford's most recent column about alcohol and the airport

Passing through the cute, harmless, relatively tiny Spokane airport on the way back to the goodly San Francisco bubble after spending a week and change up in the Pacific Northwest with the family for the holidays, entering the security checkpoint and of course doing my all-American duty and basically taking off all my clothes so as to help protect my country because, you know, it's Spokane. Islamo-fascist terrorists really hate Spokane.

Off came the jacket and the belt and the boots and the jewelry and out came the laptop and into about five plastic bins went everything, all the while figuring I'd zip right through, given how careful I'd been in my carry-on packing, nothing to raise any alarms and nothing to cause any sort of delay, no liquids and no lotions and no Astroglide travel packs and this time I even had the foresight to remove the tiny 1-inch Leatherman Squirt from my keychain (my third one — I keep forgetting) because everyone knows how easy it would be to hijack a goddamn jetliner by, say, threatening to give the pilot a really awful pedicure with that badass 1-inch nail file.

Undressing His Mother

This short film found on Fabulist! isn't exactly cute cute like mini elephants but has elements of cuteness to it and I still wanted to share. All the ways I can think of to describe it seem too shallow, but it is a beautiful sweet and heart-breaking piece about love, how our perceptions of ourselves are influenced so much by others, and loss. Not safe for work since it is simply shots of a naked body.


A short film by Ken Wardrop, where he films the naked body of his sixty-something year old mother.

Striking, moving and utterly beautiful. It's worth six minutes of your life.

Adventures!

The mission stencil story is an interactive, choose-your-own-adventure story that takes place on the sidewalks of the Mission district in San Francisco. It is told in a new medium of storytelling that uses spraypainted stencils connected to each other by arrows. The streetscape is used as sort of an illustration to accompany each piece of text.

Its a love story with 2 characters who start in different locations. His story starts at 16th and Valencia, in front of the Crown Hotel / Limon Restaurant with the text "He Leaves his Lonely Apartment." Her story starts at 21st and Guerrero in front of a stunning mansion with the text, "She Leaves her Lonely Apartment." Eventually their paths merge, at the point where they meet, and their paths travel together until drama pulls them apart.

Their are two possible endings, happy and tragic, and two other points where the story can end unexpectedly if the viewer chooses the wrong ending. All in all, there are 4 possible endings.

Father's Day is Sunday!

I randomly came across this while looking for a pair of shoes on the internet. Too cute!

For Father's Day this year I received a fantastic gift: a crown worthy of a king made by a super sweet girl, my daughter Ava. I love this crown. She decorated it herself (Mommy presided) with confetti and shiny stars and wrote "King Dady" all on her own. She then drew everyone in the family drawing themselves all around the crown. I love it. I'm wearing it right now. (You think I'm kidding, but I'm not.)

Cutest thing in the world?! (under $50)


Someone asked metafilter what the cutest thing in the world was for a gift for a friend; it had to be under $50 and couldn't be alive

There are about 50 suggestions, but my favorite is this one:

Makkuro Kurosuke are tiny soot creatures with big blinking eyes. They pop up in all of Hayao Miyazaki's beautifully animated movies, slinking nervously out of the nooks and crannies of abandoned houses with a shivery "sssssh" noise, only to swarm back in if someone enters the room.

Although shy they're good workers, and can be coaxed into transporting lumps of coal across the floor for the small fee of a sprinkling of Lucky Charms.

Just don't startle one, or it's liable to fall to the floor with a pitiful squeak and disappear in a puff of soot.

Flying Pigs!

"When pigs fly" would be the appropriate response to anyone discussing the notion of a newspaper increasing its circulation. Well, the Philadelphia Inquirer did increase its circ and pigs did, in fact, fly. Beginning last Thursday night, to celebrate the paper's 63,000 circulation increase and with help from Gyro Worldwide, flying pigs adorned the Philadelphia Inquirer building.

This cookie made the Kessel run in under twelve parsecs

Boing Boing: Cookie Millennium Falcon

I want to pretend that I am the giant asteroid worm from Empire and put this cookie on my tongue. I'll do all the dialogue about Mynocks and "This is no cave!" with the cookie in my mouth, so it'll sound more like "Thith ith no caaath!" and then in a startling rewrite to the original script, the Millenium Cookie Falcon will fail to escape from the monster and I will chem and swallow the fastest cookie ship in the glaxay, along with its droid, human and wookie passengers.

This means that they will never fall into Darth Vader's trap at Bespin's Cloud City, and that Luke will never have a reason to leave Yoda's training early. Sure, his friends and sister will die, but at least there won't be any need to go chill with Ewoks.

Even a 107 year old woman has a blog!



My name is Olive Riley. I live in Australia near Sydney. I was born in Broken Hill on Oct. 20th 1899. Broken Hill is a mining town, far away in the centre of Australia. My Friend, Mike, has arranged this blog for me. He is doing the typing and I am telling the stories. He thinks it’s a good idea to tell what’s going on. He already made a film about me a few years back and people liked that, so they might like this blog too, he says. We’ll see.


The Life of Riley
Can you imagine saying, oh yes, but that happened 80 years ago? Or yeah, I was seven like a hundred years ago. No, really.

Olive has some amazing stories and I hope she posts frequently. The one I just read was that she had a couple of rotten teeth when she was pretty young, maybe late 20s, 30s and she went to the dentist and because she didn't want her teeth drilled on and didn't want to be bothered going back and forth to the dentist, she made him pull all her teeth out, all at once, with no painkillers.

Mike: It’s a blog, Ollie. Not a blob.

Olive: Oh, really?

Eagle Sculpture Has Surprise Babies!

Monday morning brought with it the joyous arrival of three little eaglets, nestled comfortably in their cozy nest, under the watchful gaze of their Eagle foster mother or father (Calder never really made that clear) in Belltown's Olympic Sculpture Park.

The eaglets' birth parent(s) - we'll assume father(s) - were nowhere to be found, leaving behind only a small sign which read Eaglets - Mixed Media - 2007 and the initials pdl, accompanied by the ASL symbols for each letter. This stylized attribution leads the Bent to believe local performance art trio Jason Puccinelli, Jed Dunkerley, and Greg Lundgren, also known collectively as Vital 5 Productions, are responsible for this gift of life.

Deer chases boy for twenty minutes, then licks him

ABC News: Deer Chases Boy, Uses Him as Human Salt Lick

With video.

Finally, the deer overtook Kevin and got a little overly friendly.

"It caught up to me, and then it jumped on my back and started licking my ear, so I pushed it off and it started licking my ear again," Kevin said. "So I just kept on running, and there were coaches with sweat shirts and they yelled at me to come towards them. So I ran towards them, and they shooed the deer off with their sweat shirts."

Kevin and his coaches have a theory on why the deer chased him.

"The coaches said that it wanted the salt from the sweat on my back, and, um, I think it was using me as a human salt lick," said Kevin, who learned a valuable lesson from the bizarre encounter.
