I think I can speak for a large proportion of men in saying that finding the perfect female animal is pretty high up there on the list of reasons for marriage. Although, saying that, marriage is hardly the inviolable institution it used to be. Anyway, I digress… Just take a look at this beauty. She be smart, willing, eager and easily pleased. What more could a man want? I’m sure there’s numerous wisecracks I could insert at this point but I’m going to be the bigger man and just let it lie.
Like the rest of this sordid little lot these pictures have been reimagined from actual news headlines. I fill my head with this grubby nonsense so you don’t have to. Vive la revolution!

Being a slow loris Mumble loves plenty of stuff – food, sleeping and getting tickled to name but a few. But the thing he loves most is creeping up on people. He’s the king of it. It’s in his genes and he just can’t help it. So here he is creeping up on yet another unsuspecting victim.
Slow lorises are an interesting animal as they are one of the few mammals with a posionous bite (although it’s quite mild and has apparently only one related human fatality – but that was down to anaphlyactic shock) but due largely to the exotic pet trade and also the fact that they are used in traditional medicine (for their supposed ability to ward off evil spirits) they are now an endangered species. Which is pretty sad when you think about it. Especially after watching the viral video of the one getting tickled…

Roll up! Roll up!
The newest attraction to arrive at Brixton Zoo has been shown to the public for the very first time today. The Zoo managed to get ‘Animal’ from The Jim Henson company due to a conservation scheme that has been in place since both parties signed up to the drummer awareness initiative in 2004.
‘Animal’ is believed to be the sole surviving member of a 1975 genetic experiment by Dr Jim Henson in an attempt to create the perfect drummer. Genetic testing has been inconclusive although there are indications that his D.N.A contains fragments from Keith Moon and Mick Fleetwood as well as a diverse range of other sources. His legendary percussion skills are rivalled only by his mother, Laverne – although her whereabouts are currently unknown. He has been known to eat just about anything – from a drum set to pieces of glass – so please be careful with your belongings.
This really is a big step forward for Muppet conservation and a massive coup for Brixton Zoo as Animal is a worldwide attraction and will bring much needed revenue into the establishment. The Drummer Awareness Initiative is also very pleased as in recent years they have seen a steady decline in drummers due to the advancements in technology and are hoping ‘Animal’ could possibaly drive a surge in drumming being taken up in schools once more.
