Check Out These Super Cute Baby Sloths

I was going to post a video of a pug screaming like a banshee this morning, but then I saw this clip of baby sloths taking a bath, and it was so much more pleasant to watch. Their little squeaks, their puffy hair, their sleeping bodies — it kind of takes me to a happy place.

VIDEO: Watch A Frog Licking An iPhone! (Twist Ending!)

A week ago, I posted a video of a lizard playing “Ant Crusher,” a game that implores users to crush ants (hence the name “Ant Crusher”). Now comes a response of sorts: it’s an African bullfrog playing the same game. Things don’t end so nicely though…

VIDEO: Watch a Lizard Licking a Smartphone

I was going to do a photocap of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, but Bravo’s photo gallery (from where I pull my images) seems to be broken. Instead, check out this video of a bearded dragon playing Ant Crusher on a smartphone.

I’m gonna name him Nene!

Woman Fears Kittens, Exposes Herself to Ridicule on TV

Here’s a new spin on a cat video — one where the human is funnier than the cats. Check out this poor lady whose debilitating fear of kittens renders her jumpy and tearful at the ASPCA. Personally, I think it’s her friend (or perhaps sister) who steals the show.

13 Horrific Examples of Animal Cruelty in Nintendo Games

Pure evil.

This past weekend, Nintendo released Super Mario 3D Land, which features the return of the Tanooki Suit, a brown racoon-esque costume that first appeared way back in 1988 when Super Mario 3 hit stores. To some, this furry, tan outfit represents cute nostalgia, but for many of us, we can’t help but see it for what it is: a flippant disregard for the many tanukis who’ve given their pelts and their lives for man’s quest to manufacture flight-enabling fur coats. Thankfully, the good people of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) have spoken up.

Peta released this statement: “Tanooki may be just a ‘suit’ in Mario games, but by wearing the skin of an animal, Mario is sending the message that it’s OK to wear fur.”

Truer words have never been spoken, and I’m glad that someone is finally taking Mario to task. For years I’ve been decrying the plumber’s use of fireballs as a reckless endorsement of pyromania, and let’s not begin to talk about his fixation with magic mushrooms. It’s about time that this mascot’s obscene behavior is called into question.

Of course, the Tanooki Suit debacle isn’t the first time Nintendo has so fecklessly thrown animal rights out the window. After the jump, please prepare yourself for thirteen of the more horrifying and nauseating examples of animal cruelty as depicted in Nintendo’s allegedly “family-friendly” games.

VIDEO: Meet Sweet Pea, Your Everyday Crime-Fighting Super Dog

I love the random crap that the Internet spews out every day (I am a happy supplier of said crap. Have you seen my Carol of the Meows yet?). Here’s a nifty video called Adventures of Sweet Pea, which follows the exciting travails of a superhero dog named Sweet Pea. At first I was a bit like “Huh?” and then I was all “Haha” and finally I was totes “LOL.” Word of warning though: you probably shouldn’t watch this hungover (but I’m sure it’s a delight if you’re stoned, not that I would know).

Thanks to the incorrigible Alec Mapa for the heads up. And thanks to Alec’s dog Sweet Pea for being such an able crime-fighter!

VIDEO: Catvertising Is Here.

I am such a sucker for cat videos that even deliberate viral bait like the video above works on me… which is appropriate since the clip is all about how easily won over we are by cat videos. Honestly, the mere presence of a cat makes me laugh at this point.
