Friday frivolities: Sylvanians, snow, slippers, knickers and unwanted inter-species attention…

Five bits of frivolity for a libido-enhancing dose of Friday distraction.

Ahh, just as I remember them: foul-mouthed, bushy-tailed trash.


For the man who has everything


Utterly shameless cocaine ads (from a simpler time)


It’s innovation, stupid


Science says dogs hate hugs (but we’re still gonna do it anyway)


Now it's Friday! Better living, everyone!
