Don’t be cruel, says cockatoo, but his gal won’t listen

by Matthew Cobb Yes, this has been around for a couple of years (nearly 6 million views), but it’s still fun. What’s not resolved is why cockatoos dance.

Headline of the season

This is from Fox News; click on the screenshot to go to the article. It’s true, funny, and the “Jesusnapping” was probably conducted by an atheist. And the story in its entirety: BETHLEHEM, Pa. –  Police say a woman stole baby Jesus from a Nativity scene in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, and dropped the figurine off at […]

Panda Act of Love rudely interrupted

Two giant pandas were making the beast with two backs when they were rudely interrupted by an Act of Gravity. How sad! ❤ lol pic.twitter.com/y6mtv21fy1 — *GIF*WORLD* (@wordstextings_) October 2, 2016 I bet the zoo, which wants more pandas, was even more upset.

The text is indented, and the figure captions are from the website. A cook was cutting potatoes at a Quebec seniors’ residence when he decided to slice […]
