The Watering Hole, Wednesday, July 29th, 2015: Must-Squeee!

When you need a break from the lunatic asylum from which the Republican – gulp – Presidential hopefuls have escaped, here’s some peace and love amongst various species to ease your minds and soothe your souls.

From “Adorable Animal Friendships: Unlikely Pairings Will Melt Your Heart”, by Michele Berger and Edecio Martinez, courtesy of TheWeatherChannel, a gallery of 81 awwws, eeks, and squeees.  Just one to start:

tiger cub and piglets~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I’ll just bow out quietly and let you enjoy the calm…

Open Thread – take a deep breath and, um, let go?

    • House may know what’s going on. He frequents the DU site and participates in one of its posts, I think.

      • Who knew? Egomaniacs never see the backlash coming, do they?
        Figuring the entire world would think him ‘hero’ for torturing and murdering a magnificent animal.

    • They should make him the prison dentist in a maximum security prison as part of his sentence. But he still sleeps in a cell at night, and eats the same food as everyone else. It;s just instead of working in the laundromat, he’s a dentist. No patients for the day? Fine, you go back to your cell.

  1. Thank you for your understanding, bmm. To avoid orphans, I’m leaving the original here with this edit.

    WARNING: If you don’t want to see disturbing pictures about Cecil, don’t go to Raw Story. They have bad pics at the top of the page and they appear at the top even when you go to a story. They will likely stay up there until this dentist faces punishment for his crimes.

    Again, I thank you for understanding, badmoodman.

    • I wish you hadn’t gone into that much horrifying detail. Things like this really do bother some people.

      And the dentist is lying through his goddamn pearly white teeth. He paid some $50,000 in bribes to have them set this up for him. He knew perfectly well it was entirely illegal.

    • The mere fact that he cut the line demonstrates that he’s a Mitt RMoney clone.
      Leaving your trash on the table, somewhat silverspoonish, I dare say.

        • He’s lucky he didn’t get shanked.
          You DO NOT cut in line for a cheezwit.

          I do feel bad for the man who Scott Walker lives in his butt.

  2. Bernie 2016 Organizing Kickoff Live Stream (currently a countdown clock) I’m parking this here so we can find it later.

    • Poor kid, his career ended when Star Trek, TNG ended.

      Clara Bow, silent film actress

      Lou Albano, pro wrestling manager

      Peter Jennings, news anchor

      • HoR – you are mistaken if you think Wil’s career ended after SNG – he is a regular guest on Big Bang and is a big name in the gaming/comicon/cosplay culture world. He’s pretty interesting to follow on the tweeter.

    • Would love to see Frank as Jebutz reincarnated, reprising the whuppiing of the money lenders in the temple, complete with Koch Bros cast as said money grubbers…

      • I would like to see people like Bill0, inSeanitty, and that fat bastard Bill Donohue start their own “Konservative Katholic Kchurh” of America or just chuck the whole works and join up with the snake handlers.

        Even better. I would love to see Pope Frank get pissed at the hate-filled asses and excommunicate the lot of them. I would greatly enjoy watching Bill0’s face turn colors that aren’t even in “the gay rainbows” when he realizes the Pope has revoked his get out of Hell free card!

        • I often regret that I do not believe in hell as I can think of so many folks that deserve it.

    • Wait, they already identified Obama as the Antichrist. I’m not up on my end-of-days info, but can there be two of them? And would they cancel each other out like these guys:

    • Bad analogy, there will no left turns made at all at any of these debates.😉

    • That moment could be in a confrontation with Trump, though Gingrich cautioned about the risks of adopting that approach. “He’s very aggressive by nature and prepared to say virtually anything,” Gingrich said. “It’s like dealing with nitroglycerin.”

      Carrying nitro on a cantankerous pack mule is far more safe than engaging Trump in a debate.

  3. Zooey, are you still making and selling soap?
    Or have you moved on to a new adventure?

    • She has a place at ETSY.
      I’m due to order some soon.
      My soap gnomes have just about robbed my stash.

      • She had taken a vacation/time away so was wondering if she’s back to it or on a different adventure these days.
        (Greatest soaps, that’s for certain)

    • She’d best still be making it. I bought some about a month and a half ago. The world needs this soap like it needs fresh sage sausage.
