Like, specifically, I feel like that eagle is looking at our country right now and passing judgment on us all. It's a good photo and it's topical. #1

I think it's a pika. They're basically rabbits, hold the ears.

They are all magnificent but the double-ended rhino speaks to me most deeply.

I think that's a Pushme-Pullyu.

I think I'm going to have to look at these whenever I feel crappy--it's impossible not to smile!

It's amazing that all of these images are from one year, but I guess I can't recall seeing them before lately.

It feels like this should be sponsored content -- Know Your Meme Blue, if you will-- because I just know these will be covered with white letters and sarcasm before too long.

You all know that one friend who you end up embarrassed on behalf of?

Buttfox is the best though. No caption needed.

Sam the Eagle wins it for me, but I also like bear smacked in the face by salmon. That one I like because it finds its humor in satirizing hackneyed nature photographs rather than in the subjects of the photo.

Linux still going strong in headless environments and the influence of the GNU project clearly in decline. The animals know what is going on in the tech world.
