For your reading pleasure, here's our "Top 10 Hollywood A-List Wild Animals, Digital Animals, Domestic Farm Animals and Pets" list.
Now, let's have some fun with animals (what could possibly go wrong with this list?). Before you embark on this count down, please keep in mind what our new BFF, comedian Jonathan Winters, told us recently: "The most terrible fear that anybody should have is not war, is not a disease, not cancer or heart problems or food poisoning -- it's a man or a woman without a sense of humor." Here's hoping all of you have a healthy sense of humor. This list is just for fun! Smile! Laugh! Enjoy!
Gladys Pennyfeather (the sweet chicken in the Perdue Farms commercials)
Is it me or do all chickens look alike? I worry that Gladys will be mingling with the other chickens one day and Jim Perdue will mistakenly put her in the wrong line. She's just so cute and probably one of the nicest barnyard animals you'll ever meat (oops, meet). Don't anybody get their feathers in a knot ... see Chic-fil-A cows. Watch Gladys here.
The Cows (Chick-fil-A commercials)
How precious are these black and white cows? They have been on a mischievous mission for years to lure people away from eating beef (which is in THEIR best interest) so they keep making their case for humans to "EAT MOR CHIKIN." You can't blame a cow for trying! Cue the commercial.
The two Antelopes and Carl, the Lion (Geico Commercial)
We cannot get enough of these two antelopes who are wearing night vision goggles! Their laugh is contagious, and their little smarty-pants ramble ("We can see you, Carl...C'mon,You're better than that!") to Carl, the lion (King of the Jungle) is priceless! Just hope Carl doesn't get the last laugh. Watch!
Maxwell the Pig (Geico commercials)
Obviously pigs do not get any more special treatment than Alec Baldwin does when flying first class. The pig took it pretty well when told he had to turn off his cell phone on the plane so we think he's in the pink when it comes to manners. We love the little porker, even when he says "wee, weee, weeeee, all the way home." Watch the "plane" fun.
Aflac Duck (Aflac Insurance)
This silly little quacker is just our cup of tea. He doesn't say a lot but he always seems to be in the right place at the right time invading somebody's territory with his cute little bursts of energy. And always remember these words of wisdom: "Be kind to your web-footed friends, for a duck may be somebody's mother." (Not exactly Tolstoy, but it fits in this case.) Check out the commercial here.
Tard, the Grumpy Cat
"To err is human, to purr is feline" ... Robert Byrne After discovering that Grumpy Cat is a Snowshoe Siamese, that explains a lot. After all, aren't Siamese cats a bit finicky to begin with? Can we get an, Amen?! Didn't Grumpy Cat's mother ever tell her if she didn't quit frowning, her face would freeze that way? No matter, we love the little fur-ball THIS much, so no phone calls, please. See the Huffington Post's clever article (and video) on Tard here.
Boo (Cute Dog)
We don't know how anyone could find a cuter dog than Boo (a.k.a. "The cutest dog in the world!"). Yes, true, there are millions of dogs who are just as cute (their owners will attest to that!) ... but none cuter. This adorable Pomeranian has his own Facebook page with millions of "friends" and apparently a couple of photo books floating around somewhere. His cuteness certainly knows how to dress, and we love a fashionable dog. Check him out for yourself here.
Gecko (Geico Commercial)
How about those "Betty Davis Eyes" on this adorable little green lizard! And, who wouldn't fall for an accent like his? This superstar Gecko has been pushing Geico insurance for at least two years, and we're hoping they don't retire his cute little green tail anytime soon. We're thinking he's gotten use to eating the finest delicacies that money can buy so he just couldn't survive on mosquitoes anymore. We adore this little guy! Fall in love with him here.
Angry Birds (Video Game Smart Asses)
Angry birds should not really be on this list because "someone" here can't get past level two of the slingshot version which pisses "someone" off. Why, oh, why did the Taco Bell dog retire?
