The pictures below showed up in my Google+ stream with a whole story about how the poor tiger mommy needed some babies to nurse or she would have died. Piglets were sent to her with tiger markings and she’s all better. This is not true. Here is the real cats claw about the Tiger and the piglets. Not sure why people weren’t happy with the real story. I think it’s just as cool.
And a great find on the dresdencodak tumblr, Tom Baker by one of my favorite internet artists!! Woot. I’m not even a Tom Baker fan, per se.
Caller: I’m on your website and would like to know where I can get some info about the H1N1 vaccine?
WIDTS: How about right there on the main page, maybe? That picture of a pig with the text “H1N1 Swine Flu Facts” on it? I believe if you click your mouse over that, it will then take you to the info you’re seeking. I could be wrong, but that’s how the World Wide Web has worked for a number of years now. It’s so easy a cat can apparently do it.

Over the Memorial Day weekend here in the Beehive State (not named for the preponderance of beehive hairdo‘s of women in the 50’s here, but from family pics I’d swear it was) there was an accidental shooting involving alcohol that claimed the life of a young man and likely the future his brother had chosen for himself. Tragic, but it’s what happens when you mix guns and alcohol.
But, I’m not the kind of guy to point out the stupidity and ignorance of people who are enduring such an event (oops). that’s not the reason for this post. No the reason for this post is this tweet from a reporter with our local Fox affiliate.
Gee, you’ve just lost a family member in what is probably the worst way imaginable. Can we prolong your suffering and nightmares in the name of reporting by playing the 911 tapes on the news, all so that we can get a minor bump in the ratings?
Insensitive clods… but then again, it IS Fox. Why would I expect anything different?
The Romans would be appalled that this we didn’t have that call broadcast live, so I guess it is progress of some sort. Geez, it only took 2,000 years.
