Animals that Basically Melted

There are very few beings that are capable of being as relaxed as these melty animals right here. The flaps and wobbly folds of these dogs, birds, and rodents are a marvel to behold; a splendorous foil to the stiff and rigid. These animals are basically puddles, man. For more surprisingly relaxed animals, here are sleepy dogs in goofy positions.

Just when we thought we'd seen it all, we come across a subreddit dedicated to photoshopped pictures of birds with arms. It's way too good. Also, imagine a world where we saw birds out and about, with absolutely shredded arms? Now that would be a trip.

Geese have a reputation for not being the most friendly of birds, but in this case, we witness a wholesome and wonderful friendship between man and goose. When he goes to leave and the goose tries to follow him, that really pulled on the heart strings.

Bird's Nests In Weird Places

Birds don't know or care what they build their nests in or on. It could be a rib cage in a tree, a traffic cone, or even a wreath on a front door. Are these birds rebels or are they just dumb? Let's call it a mix of both. For more organisms that don't seem to care about their surroundings, here are trees that appear to be eating stuff.

Tumblr Users Trade Unconfirmed Facts About Soda And Carrier Pigeons

Nothing fills our hearts with joy and appreciation like a couple Tumblr users swapping knowledge about the history of soda and carrier pigeons in a totally random Tumblr thread. But hey, that's what Tumblr is all about. Can't say that we knew that drinking Pepsi cold and Coke warm would result in them tasting the same. Is that real life?

Someone is putting cowboy hats on pigeons in Las Vegas. The main three questions are "who" as well as "why" but possibly the biggest mystery is "how do you get a pigeon to wear a cowboy hat?" Hopefully it doesn't hurt them.

People Imagine Their Lives As Ducks

This is just the kind of AskReddit thread that escapes reason, logic, etc, and that's why we love it. We've got plenty of ominous news headlines and intellectually engaging material at our fingertips. Sometimes, we just need to pump the mental brakes and wander down a ridiculous rabbit's hole. Like this right here: people imagining what they'd do if they suddenly turned into ducks. Might go to Subway to get that bread, or start a duel with a nearby goose. Who knows.
