With enough cosmetic modifications, it is possible to (profitably) pass off a ferret as a toy poodle.
According to a study done at the university of Hiroshima, watching pictures of cute animals makes you more productive
. Considering the state many Americans might be in on Monday following a long weekend of turkey and pumkin pie, perhaps watching a few cute videos might be a good idea to get America's productivity up to par. [more inside]

The King of the Ferret Leggers
Reg Mellor has been a hero of mine ever since I first heard of him, maybe ten years ago. A total whack-job, it's true; a hero nonetheless.

Ferret Man for Lieutenant Governor?
The candidate for Lieutenant Governor of the Libertarian Party of California
has made it his personal crusade to legalize the domestication of ferrets
in his home state. This is a reasonable political cause, but it has left the impression that California Libertarians are wacko
, a trend that even bothers some Libertarians. Oh yes, the official Libertarian candidate for governor is a practicing Druid
who lists Gene Roddenberry (?)
as one of his favorite political philosophers. Is there something in the water at Libertarian Party meetings?

A wee dilemma for animal rights supporters. Should the prairie dogs be moved to a new location? Or fed to endangered black-footed ferrets
(cue Psycho music)! The horror.
