I was all ready to snark... as is my habit...but, the moose...no snark...

and I will no longer yell at the dog for taking up too much space on the bed!

Well, it's no orgasming turtle, that's for sure.

That moose video is crazy! It's especially funny/bizarre when it walks by the racks of various sorts hanging on the walls in the house. (Moose, hunting rifles, etc.)

If you click on Home up top, you can also select to view a Wall of Fail, and a Wall of Goodness.

Not that there is any reason to do so, but just sayin.

The moose video.

The moose video.

The moose vid-I..I can't effectively express my emotions and reactions per The Moose Video - except that I am both entranced and terrified.

I am not one for watching the nut shot vids, but in the Wall of Fail this one of a windmill breaking was pretty cool.

By the way, I find it really amusing that the moose video has the music from that hilarious looped Japanese flash video, which I unfortunately can't remember the name of right now or I'd link it.

Vote that moose Governor of Alaska, make a movie based on its story and we can usher in a new golden era of live-action film at Disney.

I...the moose....I will never be the same again.

On the plus side, instead of feeling vaguely angry at the world and cranky, I'm giggling at kittens and hamsters. It's a sleepy kitten, people. This is brilliant.

I love the lynx. There is this kitten kneading a blanket and one half of me is thinking "aww, cute" and the other half is thinking "look at the size of its bloody claws!"

Hah! When I saw the moosevid, all I could think of was Wolfdog's awesome remix of that song.

Just so we are clear, the language in the video linked by nosila is not Japanese. Right?

I believe the verses are in Finnish and the chorus is a kind of gibberish.

The content of the linked page changes, but I saw some farmers inducing epileptic seizures in their goats. I'm not exactly a PETA member, but I didn't find that to be cute. Horrifying, yes. Cute, no.

Otherwise, cute is good, thanks for a reliable supply.

Apart from the obvious awesome that is an indoor moose, my favorite thing about videos like that is the gangly playfulness of a young animal that big. Where it is still trying to figure out how those leg-things work and its easiest form of rapid locomotion is that crazy sideways-butt-kicking-out run.

You have to wonder though, if they are fans of Invader Zim and if they ever bring friends over and threaten to send them to A Room With A Moose! (Ideally, the moose would be chowing down on walnuts). Because, really, how often would you have the opportunity to experience that in real life?

I had not heard that Wolfdog remix. FREAKING AWESOME.

What is it with Scandinavians and their proclivity for the best hooks ever, by the way?

How did this person discover that her hamsters could swim? How many hamsters did she throw in the pool before he found two who could swim? Her maniacal cackling does not improve my opinion of her as an owner.

At one point, one of the desperate hamsters climbs on top of the other for air. Past that point, the half drowned hamster can no longer do more than keep it's head above water, weighed down by its thoroughly soaked fur. She laughs as it thrashes desperately for air.

Hamsters live in constant fear anyhow. Cranking that fear up to eleventeen is pretty awful.

And yet awwwwwww, look at them swim. Swim, hamsters, swim!

Letting a baby moose into your house is not nearly as unwise as letting a baby hippo into your house, but still, you want to knock that shit off before they develop their adult urges to, well, kill you.

Excellent hedgehog!

Tycho Brahe, one of the fathers of modern astronomy, had a pet moose. It died after breaking its leg going down stairs while drunk.

I'm glad they cut away from the moose once they all got in bed together.

I can't help but think of that video as it will appear in the trailer for a Werner Herzog documentary in the same vein as Grizzly Man.

Letting a baby moose into your house is not nearly as unwise as letting a baby hippo into your house

There was recently, actually, a family in South Africa that had a pet hippo.
Eventually it got too big for the house so they had to reinforce the door with steel. Then it met a mate and returned to the wild (up around the Limpopo River).
There must be a clip on YouTube...bingo:
Jessica the Hippo
This story has a sad ending, but let's just leave it at that for now.

I was completely lost until I refreshed the page, as upon my first viewing of the page I got 1 sloth, 6 cats, 1 windmill failing (what?), and 1 broken video. Not fluffy. Except for the cats. minus the claws.
