From Grania, we have an absolutely fabulous penguin video. Make sure to turn up the sound.

And a pesky kangaroo:

And an obese hedgehog:

      Jeebus, that’s creepy/scary.

    I don’t know if I hear “gruff dismissal of pity” so much as “Fuck!”

      I agree, that penguin is definitely using fowl language.

      Definitely a penguin expletive.

    The kangaroo photo reminds me of the opening shot of the True Facts about Marsupials video by Ze Frank.

    As if penguins weren’t already freakishly human-like…

    Hilarious!

      Wow, cool story!

      Though the wording here, “Her supplies included [yada yada yada] and an extra butterfly wing from one of her little girls that died a few days before,” takes a while to read correctly… 😀

      I doubt whether it is really true. That whole site is riddled with tall stories.

    I don’t get it – what about the hedgehog is obese?

    The hedgehog reminds of the waiter attending Mr. Gross[?] in Monty Pythons Meanig of Life:

    “Just another wafer?”

    Most of these are cute, but I bristle at the hedgehog one. (and I love the prickly ones)

    Gluttony?? Unless that critter can open food containers or by its own food, the only glutton is the owner who thinks it’s cute to grossly overfeed their pet.
