    These are several pictures of Huff the hedgehog. Huff is a three year old rescue hedgehog that was born with pronounced fangs and kind of reminds me of Tuna the dog. First of all, I thought everybody named their hedgehog Sonic. I thought that was a rule. Although in this ca... / Continue →

    Because apparently they're all out of ideas, these are the upcoming pet stamps from the US Postal Service. They're stamps with common animal pets on them and kind of look like somebody spent four minutes surfing stock images. Why is there no rock? Dogs and cats each got two ... / Continue →
