Who run the world? Squirrels.

You guys… I am seriously slacking off. I almost forgot that today is Squirrel Appreciation Day (aka Kolchak’s least favorite holiday).

Finally, you can enter to win a cool Rhino Force bracelet (ends Monday).

What are you waiting for?

I do not, but perhaps I should curate one.)

A few other ways to celebrate:

However, you choose to commemorate the day, watch out for the Jedi squirrels.  Those guys are tough.

Ice Capades: Penguin Edition

Someone totally needs to remake The Cutting Edge with an all-penguin cast, right?  (Perhaps I should add penguin movies to my imaginary dog parody production company’s portfolio.  On an unrelated note, apparently I’ve got ice skating on the brain this week.)
