Please bear with me…

wilbaer-portrait-180.jpgBlog Guy, every now and then  you stop being sarcastic long enough to feature  on your blog. But lately, they’ve all been polar bear cubs from Germany. One right after another. Are you on the German zoo payroll?

No way. I have ethical standards, and anyway, the Germans zoos haven’t offered. I’ve actually been working to choose the world’s cutest variety of animal, and I’ve narrowed it down to pandas and polar bears. I want as many opinions as possible, so check out these posts and get back to me.

Pandas are harder to tan, they aren’t big enough for two and the hair tends to fall out.

Hard to choose between as Ren and Stimpy or Borak and Clinton. Ren and Stimpy and Borak and Clinton…hmmm. Watch out, Nostradamas. There’s a new… um… predicting dude in town.

I think they are adorable, all of them. It’s a nice change from the freaky models and crazier you usually feature. That’s too much like real life…

If it isn’t Alien vs. Predator, I just don’t care.

It is impossible to choose between these beautiful animals. I would hope that everyone cares equally for them and about their welfare.
