Prank in the Park

The next time you’re looking for a harmless prank to pull on friends, try this:

The Sriracha Tiger Zoo in Thailand is famous for their unique attractions, fun shows, and the ability for tourists to get close to (and often touch) the tigers. However, the most famous attraction is the couplings of pigs and tigers:

Tiger and Pigs

These pictures show two year old Saimai, a Royal Bengal tigress, with the six piglets she is raising.

Tiger and Piglets Playing

The tiger doesn’t seem to mind the unclothed piglets, so I’m guessing the costumes were just meant to put on a cute show for the tourists. Either that or she ate the first set of tiger-clad piglets and the zoo hasn’t had time to create new outfits.

While the zoo and all press materials claim the pairings are completely benevolent, I personally wonder if Saimai just views her pig-raising duties as a long “getting ready for dinner” ritual.

Fittingly, Saimai herself was cared for and nursed by a pig:

Thanks Renee!

Romance is in the Air

Squirrels Kissing

Despite the 8 inches of new snow outside my window, I’m told that Spring is still just around the corner. While we may think of Spring in terms of flowers, sports, and allergies, these squirrels have only one thing on their mind.

Thanks Tim!

Imagine walking into a friend’s dining room to find this four foot tall Gummi Bear chandelier hanging from the ceiling:

YaYa Chou, the artist who conceived the chandelier, has also created many other Gummi Bear sculptures, such as this Gummi Bear rug (which I recommend not using as a bath mat):

I thought this red Ram was the cutest though. Primarily because I’d love to give them out as Christmas and Birthday presents:

Who knew that Gummi Bears could be so versatile?

I thought this four year old elephant playing the harmonica was just the cutest:

This video, via Arbroath, was taken in a little village on Phuket Island, Thailand. After doing a little research, I learned that Thai elephants are naturally interested in music, and have been trained to play harmonicas, drums, pipes, and oversized electronic keyboards.

There’s even an elephant orchestra that has released 2 CDs, with a third on the way. Dave Soldier and Richard Lair collaborated with the Thai Elephant Conservatory to train a group of 6 elephants (later expanded to 12) to play various elephant instruments:

The elephants sound far better on the CD than the video. Listen to more tracks from the Thai Elephant Orchestra at Amazon. Some are surprisingly good, particularly for a herd of elephants. This one was my favorite.

If You Eat a Cricket …

If you eat a cricket, you’ll never blink again! Proof:

Cat Squeezes into a Fishbowl

I thought this was pretty funny, but seriously … who trains their cat to do this?

(if you can’t see the video, click here)

Maybe the cat was just playing with a bowl and figured the trick out itself? If so, smart cat!

Tic and Tac LOVE to run around their hamster wheel … particularly Tic. He is so fast that the his owner put a speedometer on the wheel so Tic could set and break world hamster speed records. Who would have thought that hamsters had such a competitive streak?

I thought this was pretty cute and funny:

If you’re curious how fast Tic was going, divide the top # by 10 to get km/h (or by 16 to get mph). Looks a lot faster than 4 miles per hour, huh?

If you have kids, you’ve either heard about the Nintendo Wii and Playstation 3, or you live in a village so remote that you are reading this from an ink-smeared napkin that fell off the back of a dirty old pickup truck. If that’s the case, you’ll unfortunately miss this video (and by the way, I’d like my napkin back … my address is right under the pelican in overalls):

This video is not an anomoly … this is the response that kids and adults alike seem to have to the Nintendo Wii. I saw parents doing the same thing at Circuit City the other night (one almost hit the TV with the Wiimote). Most of the Wii games actually make you exercise a little (or a lot) to win.

That’s right, a game system that will make your kid more active! Now you don’t have to feel quite as guilty about your kids sitting in front of the TV for hours, instead they’ll be jumping up and down foolishly in front of the TV. OK, so you’d probably rather have them play with friends or outside, but it sure beats watching cartoons. As a bonus, if your kid MUST have a new video game system, the Wii is the cheapest one available right now.

In case you were wondering, this IS NOT a paid post. I just couldn’t resist writing about the Wii after seeing that cute little video.

The past couple days we’ve been working on something pretty cool that we’ll hopefully have completed for tomorrow, but until then I wanted to share some short videos I found amusing. Unlike many of the videos we’ve shown here, I can almost guarantee you’ve never seen these (all are brand new and have less than 100 views in YouTube):

Cute/funny one from the makers of the “In the Jungle” video:

Huh? This kid has problems, or just an insane craving:

Another odd one: A kid and his banana friend:

And finally, a cute kid being badgered by his English dad:

Hopefully you enjoyed these!, but let us know if you’d rather see more mainstream videos in the future.
