Cute or funny, for the most part.

Hi!  My name isn't Dumbo.

Yeah, I'm a widdle guy.

Look out below!

Buddies.  For the time being.

Ain't I the cutest!

Oh, we're off on the road to Morocco...
(From the movie of the same name.)

Just tasting.

Ha, ha, ha! That was a good one!

What I do on a hot day.

Listen, Ma, psssst!

I told you the elephants took a different road!

Food!  Food!  Food!

Humor --

I OWE MY MOTHER  (Were ever told any of these?)

~  My mother taught me the CIRCLE OF LIFE.
"I brought you into this world, and I can take you out."

~ My mother taught me about BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION.
"Stop acting like your father!"

~ My mother taught me about ENVY.
"There are millions of less fortunate children in this world who don't have wonderful parents like you do."

~ My mother taught me about ANTICIPATION.
"Just wait until we get home."

~ My mother taught me about RECEIVING.
"You are going to get it when you get home!"

~ My mother taught me MEDICAL SCIENCE.
"If you don't stop crossing your eyes, they are going to get stuck that way."


  1. Pileated woodpeckers! The largest ones there are, with the ivory-billed gone now. When I was growing up the whole neighborhood could hear one rat-tat-tatting away on some dead tree in the woods behind our houses and people would phone back and forth to say where it was and share the chance to see it. They were rare and endangered then.

  2. Ah, much animal cuteness.
