So my suspicions were confirmed in the about page: "You might be wondering: “Why is his blog called Head Like an Orange, his head looks more like a rotten apple”. Well, I named it after the man with an actual head like an orange: Karl Pilkington."

It really is amazing how many animals look like they should be beatboxing.

Now considering its name and the fact it's made by Dutch guy and I expected this to be animated gifs of queen Bea and her many, many awful hats and hair.

Dear god, I initially read that as "posting beautiful girls from various nature documentaries" and was momentarily outraged that the world would nix classy British voice overs in favor of bikini clad sex kittens.*

*Excepting, of course, the tastefully presented mating rituals of actual felines.

I love this site. Beautiful pictures (and cat pictures) are a major part of the reason I pay my internet bill.
