While our buzzing buddies don’t need to be as strong in the lifting department as their antsy cousins, when these insects are collecting pollen they can still look more than a little encumbered.

And Now for Something Completely Different

It has been 40 years since five Brits and a Yank debuted on British television as a group of comic writer/performers with the oddly-named “Monty Python’s Flying Circus.” The free-wheeling series and their later films, books and records have been cult favorites and an inspiration to countless comedians, yet few have ever matched the anarchic brilliance of the Pythons’ work.

Obese skunk put on vegetarian diet to battle bacon addiction
Mr. Bumble the skunk loves his bacon sandwiches, but his new
owners have put him on a vegetarian diet to help shed the extra weight
they’ve added to his frame.

At 14 pounds, Mr. Bumble is twice his ideal weight. His previous
owners, who indulged his love for pork, gave him to the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, and he
now lives at Tropiquaria animal park near Watchet, Somerset, where he’s
fed fruit and vegetables.

Mr. Bumble the skunk

His new healthy diet, along with a daily exercise regimen, should
help him shed the extra 7 pounds that have made his naturally sleek
body so rotund. Skunks’ natural diet in the wild is made up of insects,
mice, greenery, and dead animals.

We’re putting him on the vegetarian option at the moment. It’s
very much like a human weight-watching issue. He is getting to meet
lots of new people so there’s lots going on in his life, and I suspect
it’s making up for the lack of his old favorite food.”

The Bra to Save your Life : Guys also welcome

Elena Bodnar, who lives in Chicago, got her start as a scientist in Ukraine, when she witnessed the devastating effects of the Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster in 1986. She noticed, among other things, that women were wearing bras that may have been lacy but were certainly not life-saving.

At the ceremony, Bodnar demonstrated her invention, which she said could have prevented people from breathing in Iodine-131 in the wake of Chernobyl. She graciously gave pink bras (each of which can turn into two gas masks) to actual Nobel laureates (yes, even the men, who now have the option to enjoy the bras without shame–not to mention any likely real effect–in the privacy of their own homes).

And for all the women out there who are worried about whether their cup size is too big or small to turn into effective gas masks: size, according to Bodnar, doesn’t matter.

Pets of the Homeless -Their valuable possession

Love is Priceless

How can you choose between shelter and a best friend? It’s an impossible decision pet-lovers face when losing their homes. Only two pet-friendly homeless shelters exist in the United States (in Florida and California) and homeless people with pets often choose to stay on the streets rather than part with their four-legged friend.

Feeding Pets of the Homeless is a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinarian care to the homeless and less fortunate in local communities across the United States and Canada. Won’t you help?
