We have heard of Supermen . One king in Losotho, I guess , or is it in some central African country who sired 100 children . But this is a Super pig indeed. A true guinea leaning towards experimenting!!

We have heard of the Octopus during the last World cup predicting its outcome. Hope the fate of these animals their fame is not short lived.

Intersting spinets T, as usuual.

That first story had me laughing even before I clicked on it. Randy is quite the Romeo.

I enjoyed all these animal related articles today. The crazy guy with the racehorces and the cow story were especially good, too.

Karen said...

Randy should demand a paternity test! lol

I would feel bad eating that cake after all that hard work.

I've thought of training my cat to use the toilet but it just seems weird.

I heard that Tardar was getting his own movie deal. Sounds funny. Oh and talk about a father's day for that guinea pig! :D

Suko said...

Thank you for this hilarious post! My favorite is the toilet training article and video (complete with snazzy video). I was tempted to share that one on Facebook.

What a fitting name for the sex-mad guinea-pig. LOL He's lucky there's no child support when you're a guinea-pig.

What an awesome mom that four year old has! My daughter will never be so lucky.

I've heard about potty training cats (and dogs) to use the toilet. It always amazes me--and yet scares me too.

Gosh, that last one really got me laughing. And how do horses mow lawns?

Shooting Stars Mag said...

sheesh, that guinea pig really gets around. lol

Barbara Fisher said...

My granddaughters would love one of those Peppa Pig cakes! I just had to share your post with my daughter-in-law in Australia, I can see this being her next project. xx

I have always wanted to train my cats to use the toilet thus that article looks great!

Of course I have never been able to train my cats to do anything...

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha there were some funny reads here. I had a friend who was quite into Hello kitty, and I really never understood why but at least she wasn't as bad as Natasha Goldsworth. :D

Fun articles- as always. :) I laughed about the horse on the balcony. Seeing the picture I was glad the horse didn't try to jump. I am guessing the horse pulled a mower of some sort to mow the lawn? I am not sure how that worked- but I am curious about it. When I was in Poland I saw horses plowing fields, by pulling the plow, but I don't think I saw any that were mowing.
