News you can’t use.

.

Because it’s more fun than the kind you can.

.

.

I know staffing shortages around the country are bad, but… wow.

.

.

This is good news, but it does make me wonder who studies these things… and how they got a worm to spit on command.

.

.

Worm spittoons. Does Amazon sell those…?

.

.

I’m going to pay $75 for an animal that eats dried poop in the park? No.

.

.

I can’t find my own umbrella when it rains, now I’m supposed to remember my phone’s?

.

.

Should we?

.

.

This is a little disturbing.

.

.

Makes me glad I never developed a taste for it.

.

Let’s play.

.

It won’t take much time.

I promise.

This is an easy one for me. Calves liver with onions. My parents were fans, but I’ve been known to run screaming from the room at the mere sight of it. Basically any organ meat will elicit a similar reaction, but my mother cooked this on a regular basis so I had lots of practice avoiding it.

Liver tonight? Gee mom, I can’t. Softball practice.

Liver? Sorry mom, art club meeting.

Dessicated cow organs? I’d love to… but the circus is in town and they need a new elephant handler.

Any excuse would do. But she got wise after a while and decided to force me to eat it one night. Silly woman, thinking she could out stubborn 10 year old me.

She served dinner… I ate the potatoes and vegetables and left the liver untouched. She told me I would eat it. I told her I would not. She said I couldn’t get up from the table until it was gone. I said no problem and settled in for the night. If I wouldn’t eat it freshly cooked and hot did she really think I’d eat it cold and congealed?

The war of wills had begun, but after an hour and a half my father… ever the peacemaker…. let our notorious food stealing beagle in the back door and I ( accidentally, of course ) dropped my plate on the floor.

Bye bye liver.

My mother lost that battle and never tried to force me to eat it again. She did continue to serve it though.

🤢

How about you? What meal haunted your childhood dinner table…

.

So good I have to share..

.

I try not to over share silly things I find online, but sometimes I simply have to.

We’ve all heard stories about pet owners who resemble their dogs or cats… heck I had an elderly aunt who was a dead ringer for her standard schnauzer, mustache et al. …. but I found a post from a photographer who took this subject to a whole other level.

No captioning necessary, just enjoy.

Are these fabulous or what?

.

News you can’t use.

.

You can’t use it, but if it entertains you… I’ll settle for that.

.

.

That’s something you don’t see everyday.

.

.

I’ll take him for a seat companion any day.

.

.

I’ve probably seen them all already, but sure.

.

.

My husband plogs every time we walk. He even carries a trash bag in his pocket.

.

.

Clever ad campaign, but I’m still only buying two shoes at a time.

.

.

Good on you Fido. I’m sure you would have beaten me as well.

.

Critter news you can’t use.

.

Being an animal lover, my eye is always drawn to stories and articles in which they feature.

.

.

My girlfriend caught Covid in the first wave. It was a really bad time for her but thankfully she didn’t need to be hospitalized. She is however suffering many long Covid effects. Brain fog, hair thinning and worst of all … loss of taste and smell. It’s been almost two years and still nothing. She says the only flavor that breaks through is salt. Can you imagine only tasting salt for two years? I’m crossing my fingers for the hamsters.

.

.

Shame I can’t talk the husband into it. He’s a pretty boy…

.

.

This made my heart smile. Every store/business should adopt a shelter dog!

.

.

A random chicken is loose in our town. I shall update the post if he struts by our house.

.

I think I speak for all dogs..

.

Dogs of the world? Unite and bite your owners… at least the ones who invented and sell this nonsense.

.

.

And if you think that’s the most ridiculous thing you’ve seen today, hang on. It gets worse.

.

.

While the chihuahua dog umbrella might seem cute, let’s visualize the Great Dane sized version and move on.

.

.

I didn’t click on this oddity so I can’t relay any details. I get enough weirdo advertisements as it is, exploring canine penile wraps would take me down a dark tunnel I’d just as soon not visit.

🤣

.

That is not a happy face.

.

If ever a pet product was given the wrong name, this has got to be it.

.

.

Do these dogs look happy to you?

.

.

I’m going with no.

.

.

The swaddling effect may calm them but if you think that’s a joyful portrait, I fear for the well being of your significant other.

.

.

This cat is neither happy nor sleeping peacefully in his human enforced hoodie cocoon.

He is quietly and methodically planning your painful demise.

Beware.

.

I love my town

.

My neighbors are the helpful sort and with the whiplash weather we’ve been having lately, everyone’s been posting ice charts.

.

.

Mainers love to test the ice, but knowing your limits is important.

.

.

Very lucky indeed. He’s a gorgeous fellow.

A tarp wrapped plywood circle in the woods. But look, it has a porch! What a deal.

The owner lives two doors down and says Junior here goes wherever the belly rubs lead him.
