Well, why DOESN'T coffee go in your butt?


@sarah girl I love that that one is the only one with alt text.


Drunk apes are part of my immediate family tree.


@DoMark That was my exact reaction, just a gut "Yes, the answer to that question is yes."


It is unsettling that this post didn't go up yesterday. Am I to believe that these are all real?


Finally, lady otters get a break.


Is the invasive species one about Snakeheads/Frankenfish in the Chesapeake? Because I had a Snakehead taco a couple of weeks ago and it was pretty good. Kind of like swordfish.


@OhMarie My family used to camp along Lake Michigan when I was a kid and there were signs everywhere warning us to look out for sea lampreys. I do NOT wanna eat a terrifying vampiric nightmare eel!


@Amphora NOPENOPENOPENOPENOPE. Not clicking that link.

@OhMarie I can get behind eating snakeheads, but I don't think "let's eat them" is a great tactic to deal with invasive bamboo stands, the Emerald Ash Borer, or ailanthus altissima... although it's kind of a hilarious thought!


@RK Fire You mean you would not care for some brown marmorated stink bugs on your salad? They provide a lovely crunch.

Miss Maszkerádi

Lily Rowan

The answer to all of them is no, right???


Edith, you left out "Male Bats Perform Oral Sex on Females".

Lily Rowan

@Emby Did These Male Bats Perform ORAL Sex on Females?

@Edith Zimmerman

@Edith Zimmerman It's ok, sometimes you just have to wing it.



I don't think she's going to cave.


@atipofthehat I'm not gonna stop hanging around here either way.



I've tried, but echolocate another pun.



"Sonar on it already!"

fondue with cheddar

@atipofthehat I must be batty to waste another workday with these puns.


@fondue with cheddar I could do this furever!


@fondue with cheddar

Maybe it's time to bat tongue down the hatch.

fondue with cheddar

@atipofthehat I think we can just wing it from here.


@fondue with cheddar

I'm down with that.

"The tube-lipped nectar bat (Anoura fistulata), has the longest tongue of any mammal relative to its body size."


@fondue with cheddar After yesterday's eggstravaganza of puns, I vam pired.

(No? Too much of a reach? Take this bat fact from Wikipedia instead: " Bats do not flap their entire forelimbs, as birds do, but instead flap their spread-out digits" Jazz hands. They fly by JAZZ HANDS.)

fondue with cheddar

@TheLetterL Jazz hands! This is the best news I've heard all day.

mrs psmith

I love these. It's like on cable news--"Tune in at 11 to find out whether the government is USING OREOS TO MAKE YOUR CHILD GAY/the secret to a healthy life is BATHING IN BUTTER/your neighbor is ACTUALLY OSAMA BIN LADEN!" And then if you are so foolish as to tune in it always turns out, nope, haha, our bad, false alarm.

@PatatasBravas fighting fires, busting skulls, breaking hearts! is where she's at. I'm pretty sure.


Actually had a conversation at the bar last weekend with a dude who thought that aliens must have planted humans on Earth because...I don't know? And then he said, "What, do you think we evolved from apes?"

And I just turned to my friend and said, "Aw, someone doesn't know how evolution works." I DON'T HAVE TIME FOR YOUR ALIEN SHIT.

Blackwatch Plaid

@meetapossum Must be weird to get one's entire worldview from mediocre Ridley Scott films.


I'm not entirely convinced that these don't just come from a random headline generator

My guess is quite the opposite.


this reads like the google search history on my laptop after my husband and I smoke a little too much weed. one of our recent searches was simply "fabio bird face."

Edith Zimmerman

@mynamebackwards I know what you were doing. The goose and the rollercoaster


"Why coffee doesn't go in your butt" is not a question, Edith.

It is, however, one of several of these where the full text of the article could just be "Because."

(ETA: Sorry just saw the alt text. WAY AHEAD OF ME.)


this was wondrous, but I demand a return of the Daily Mail subhead series.


@mollpants OMG this was before my time as a 'pinner - LOVE IT!!!
+1 bring this back, plz!


"...next, on Sick Sad World!"

and it's not even my birthday

I would love to answer an overeager philosophical-type college freshman who asks "Are we living in a hologram?" with "IS POLLUTION SHRINKING OTTER PENISES?"
