I assume Kristen Bell is pretty much hyperventilating over this.

I like the part where the sloths were in the bucket.

If that's a deadly sin, then I don't wanna go to heaven.

I dunno; they move a bit too fast to be my true spirit animal.

Next month it's Bucket of Sloths II: Tub of Leisure.

My favorite is the one with both arms over its head and a sleepy smile.

Apparently, Kristen knows the names of every sloth in the greater Los Angeles area.

"I know there's a sloth in LA named Lola!"

Six sloths in a bucket, named Wrath, Greed, Pride, Lust, Envy, and Gluttony.

I figured "Bucket of Sloths" was going to be one of those weird things you can buy on Amazon.

Store the Sloths in a Trough. And then, a Vat of Bats! The Tureen of Wolverines! A Kettle of Tasmanian Devils!

Yeeesh! I was drunk-walking down a Hong Kong market alley back in the 80s and a guy tried to sell me baby lemurs in a grocery bag. This was uncomfortably close to that that.

We took our sloth and we stuck it,
In a big bright red bucket.
We needed some more,
Almost went to the store,
But we're lazy and said 'fuck it'.

Tried?

Does that mean you somehow managed to convince yourself *not* to buy baby lemurs?

I met Lucy when I was working in Peru. She came out with me, my principle investigator, and another field assistant while we were scouting for new troops of tamarins. A bullet ant fell down her shirt and stung her, but she decided to stick with us for the rest of the day anyway. She was pretty great and is doing all sorts of really cool things!

True, but if they're related, it's slotheryn.

I would so buy baby lemurs in a grocery bad!
After I hugged them and squeezed them and kissed their little heady-weadys, I would give them to a zoo. I know baby lemurs are not suited as pets. But I still would like to have a grocery bag full.
