Gotta Watch: Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is May 8 and, in the spirit of motherhood everywhere, we wanted to share some warm-and-fuzzy mommy videos that will hopefully make you smile. Here's a hint: They involve baby animals and their - how should we say, atypical? - mothers. These videos prove that you don't have to be a biological mother to be a mom.

Chihuahua's motherly instinct - This video from 2007 could be one of the cutest, or most disturbing videos ever.  At first glance, everything looks totally normal. Until you realize those babies aren't actually puppies.

Dog is mother of the year to kittens - Who said dogs and cats can't get along?  Check out this video of a pooch named Lily Lou at an animal shelter in Iowa who ends up adopting nine motherless kittens.

Chicken takes pups under wing - Back in 2003 the Scott family, got the shock of a lifetime.  They came home to find that one of their pet chickens had flown its coop and set up shop with a litter of new born puppies and their doggy mom. They all seem to get along fine, only problem is that the pups are having a little trouble telling the difference between feather and fur so feeding is a bit of a challenge.

    That chicken knows true love. To adopt puppies and treat them as your own is wonderful.

    Impossible Julie, some humans are evil. They kill people for money or other selfish reasons.

    All humans have the capacity to do harm, just as all are able to be loving. Some people enjoy loving while others enjoy expressing hatred in various and sundry ways. Many are extorted into wrongdoing... rather than standing their ground, they will 'cave in' and join-in on the carnage. Others enjoy being mean so much, they would gladly pay for the right to join-in on the bloodletting! Even in the name of God! And then there are those who care. Those who just want to raise their families proper, loving. National boundaries seperate the haters to be sure. But as for the lovers, we know no bounds! A line drawn in the dirt(national boundary) will not and cannot possibly stop us from loving each other. We love you families of the world who have had their lands invaded by foreigners who plunder your lands and watch your children starve as theirs struggle with obesity. Hang in there! Help is on the way!

    What? You thought it strange that Africa's children are starved while our own are fat? Africa with all of her precious minerals, diamonds, oil, etc. With such an enormous amount of natural resources, how is it possible that they go hungry? (for the answer, google keywords 'african leaders bribed'. And you can mix-and-match/word jumble too! example: 'halliburton bribes african leaders' or 'debeers bribes african leaders' or 'slave traders bribed african tribal leaders'. The possiblilities are endless, as are the examples of African leaders who have been bribed into allowing foreigners to plunder the entire continent for centuries)

    ...not to mention the numerous examples of foreign leaders who refused to accept these bribes, only to be removed and watch as a puppet-leader is installed into power. (not limited to Africa, the most glaring example)

    And then there are those like Joey here. These are the 'stradlers'...when faced with a hard dose of reality, they jump off the fence! (wonder which side Joey landed on)

    We aren't "trolls", we are posers. Like I'm 'posing' as Caesar, a well-known Roman leader. I figure if yer gonna be posing, might as well think big. I've never understood why trolls pose pose as someone as insignificant as Cesar here. (no offense Big Joe) Plus Madonna didn't troll...she po-po-po-po-pose(ed).
