Dear [Owner of Buck Buck & other chickens (sorry I don't know your name)], I love your videos, pictures, and stories of Buck Buck. The first time I watched "Buck Buck and the Sphere of Rage" I nearly peed myself laughing and then shared it with my sister. I was wondering, in your story of Buck Buck and the Jehovah's Witnesses, what exactly did Buck Buck do to scare them off? Did he dispatch of them in a humane, bloodless manner? I am dying to know. Sincerely, an admirer of your blog and chickens

Rosalind

oh my god clickthrough on this post and hit the #buck buck tag on it. You will not be disappoint.

There are three primary components to Buck Buck’s removal tactics for items falling under the “I do not like this thing and no longer wish to look at it” clause, in order as follows:

1. Feather expansion

2. Growling and/or Screaming

3. Head On Charge

I quickly scooped him up and held onto him that time though because sometimes there is pity and a little fear of legal action in my heart. The offending party made a swift retreat to their car, but not before leaving one of their nice pamphlets on a nearby table. 

Buck Buck later disposed of that too.

Great Horned Owl (male), Downers Grove, IL (April 2015) on Flickr.

Male Great Horned Owl near his two owlets in the nest, 2-3 weeks after hatching. Light was low, sky cloudy, trees interfering, so quality isn’t great. Still, I got to photograph the whole Great Horned Owl family in one one visit: mother, father, 2 owlets.

Butterflies Have an Extra Stomach Attached to Their Vaginas

Rosalind

just gonna leave this here

One thing you won't find in the story of the Very Hungry Caterpillar is the part where after transforming into a butterfly, he mates with a female who has a Very Hungry Reproductive Tract waiting to devour his sperm. She has a special digestive organ just for this purpose. It's so powerful that it could even compete with the gut that let the caterpillar, in his more innocent days, chew through those five oranges. This sperm-hungry organ is called the bursa copulatrix.

So… Yeah… :/
(I’m not usually randomly poking them when they are brooding, don’t worry)

I’ve had plenty of broody hens before but this is, like, a broody hen convention - holy crap! I love how the banshee poofball triggers the others and makes them growl.

Thoughts You Have While Trying On Jeans

by Samuel Trotman
Rosalind

me: WHY DOESN'T THE BACK COVER MY ASS

“This size should fit. Why doesn’t it fit?”, “Do I really need new jeans?”, “Whats the fashionable level of tightness these days, are these too tight?” Does this sound familiar? Buzzfeed have made a funny short to highlight the troubles, traumas and general thoughts you have while trying on jeans in the fitting room.

I have done this

dragondicks:

I went to smell my bra this morning to see if it was gross and for some reason the instructions got fucked up on the way from my brain and I ended up putting it to my ear and just listening to it for a second. Idk how my brain thought that would help, like if I could hear the ocean it’s time to put on a clean bra

Scientists Discover the Origin of Swiss Cheese's Holes

Rosalind

now you know

Sandwich lovers around the world will forever remember 2015 as the year scientists solved the great Swiss cheese mystery. After nearly a century of research, scientists in Switzerland — of course — have finally discovered why Swiss cheese has holes, and it has nothing to do with hungry mice. Rather, it's tiny flecks of hay that fall into the milk during production that give Swiss cheese its distinctive appearance, according to experts from Agroscope, a governmental agriculture research gr

now THIS is an ally

Awe dude his sister died last year and she was gay.

And he had this huge mass wedding party to honor her.

And he called a bunch of celebrity chefs to make the food for it.

Wow this is… really cute?

I’m… sympathizing with Guy Fieri?

(And he did 101 gay weddings because he was trying to compare the Attorney General against marriage equality to Cruella DeVille, like, 101 dalmations.)

THE TRUE UNPROBLEMATIC FAVE

Come to think of it I never actually found a single reason to dislike him. To my knowledge he’s just a goofball who likes food.

youngmarxist:

So if we have to show women what the baby looks like in their womb and tell them how the process works before allowing them to get an abortion, does that mean we should teach our soldiers about the culture of the lands we’re invading, and explain to them that the people we want them to kill have families and feel pain, just like Americans?

no, because apparently to american government a single underdeveloped american fetus has more value than a thousand families in the middle east
