This baby monkey was rejected by his mom, so the zookeepers are keeping him comforted with stuffed animals around the clock. Only click through to the article if you want to feel heartbroken and rage toward a deadbeat monkey momma.
He sings at such a high frequency that other whales do not respond to him.
He is the loneliest whale in the world.
This is a King Vulture chick. It may be one of the cutest ugly things I have ever seen.

Pistachio Shortbread Cookies
Mardi Gras and St. Patrick’s Day all in one month? AND it’s almost SPRING! This calls for fatty, green spotted cookies!
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
- 1/2 teaspoons salt (unless using salted pistachios)
- 1/2 cup chopped, roasted pistachios
- 3/4 cup butter, frozen, 1/2 inch cubes
- 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg yolk
Whisk together flour, powdered sugar, and salt, then add in the pistachios, butter, vanilla, and egg yolk. Mix together well with hands or in a food processor. Roll into a log and wrap in plastic. Let chill in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Cut 1/4” rounds from the log and place on an un-greased baking sheet, about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for about 18-20 minutes until light golden.
Makes about 30, 1 1/2 inch diameter cookies.
I wish everyone wanted the best for you and not what is best for them.
Hoping to finish this in one sitting.
Traveling to Cincinnati tomorrow via the (supposedly) classy new Greyhound Express. Oh yeah, it cost $1.
