She’d Walk Seven Miles For A Bone

" />
This is a story from 2008, but was on a TV in a show on Animal Planet about naughty animals tonight. Thought it was cool so I looked it up to share. Video is from YouTube.

Thank You,  Patty!

I think most regular readers of WU would agree that our contributor Patty is at the heart and soul of this misguided enterprise. She makes terrific posts, and always manages to comment kindly and intelligently on what others do. This blog would not be the same without her.

I've been wanting to send her a little token of thanks, but could not come up with the perfect item--until I was out book-hunting today and came across a copy of the volume pictured to the side.

Patty--send me your snailmail address privately through the SUGGEST LINK mechanism, and this invaluable compendium of "boners" will go out to you in Monday's mail.

And thanks again for all your creativity!

Cherry Bees


A New York bee keeper wondered why her bees, their hives and honey were all turning red. Having a marachino cherry plant nearby seems to be the culprit. With a video clip at the link.

MLD


MLD, or Major League Dreidel, is basically a Hanukkah party club that is expanding to a number of cities. Players with names like Spindiana Jones and Spinona Ryder compete for the longest spin and everyone bets, drinks microbrews, and has a great time. Sounds like a good time. Happy Hanukkah (it starts at sundown today) to those WUvians who celebrate it.
