    NOMTOM, there goes another keyboard! This is the best.

    A bigwig on a certain someone’s team actually tweeted about a “basket of deportables”–best Freudian slip ever!

      I love it! My two favorite invented words are both from Sarah Palin – even though they were unintended, I think they’re genuinely great: “squirmish” (squeamish + skirmish) and “refudiate” (refute + repudiate).

        I love words like that. My aunt had a neighbor who said “vice reverse” instead of vice versa and it has become firmly ensconced in our family lexicon, so much so that we say it in public with nary a blink of an eye.

    Amazing how otters can look so grumpy but be so playful.

      Maybe they’re grumpy cos they’re being kept from playing in the water? (I love “grumpity grump” btw😄)

    They look like they are trying on Fierce.
    They are not winning.

    Oh, I don’t know. The two on the right might be a bit disapproving, but the two on the left seem more disappointed, or perhaps a bit Bemildred.

    • D B September 12, 2016 / 9:22 pm

      “Bemildred”! Love it!

      • Ricky's Mom September 12, 2016 / 10:28 pm

        Classical reference. Free Ricky-kiss to anyone who knows the source.

          Inquiring minds are longing to know!

    Where do I get my own Basket of Disapproving? I’m taking this with me to every strategic planning meeting. We’re not making progress anyway…. at least we’d have fun.

  11. Shan September 13, 2016 / 9:45 am

    Oh. My. Word. These faces! Do otters like to be snorggled or huffed?

    • allein 🐾 September 13, 2016 / 9:54 am

      I don’t know but I reallyreallyreally want to snorglehuff a baby otter.

      • Shan September 13, 2016 / 3:27 pm

        Oh, me too!
