That’s cute, but not nearly as cute as this classic of the baby panda sneeze

30 sneezes are much funnier than one sneeze.

Dear Moderator,

Is it really necessary for some guy to come by and post a different link to a video that I posted, and you approved?

After all, I am on probation for my attitude as it is, and the moderators must Ok all my posts before they get posted.

So do I also now have to put up with some jerk that thinks he is better at your job then you are?

It's all fun and games until the cottonwoods have you sneezing your lungs onto your chest.

Laugh it up, Some of us take this seriously.

Crap, I've got a sinus headache from hades....

Who is the source owner of the video? If the video was taken off someone else's account on YouTube, I don't see what the problem is posting to the original content owner.

A lot of people don't want to go to blogs because of malware, adware, etc.

They’re probably not bad people, and I’m not a moderator.

But it’s getting a little out of control.

There are a couple that come back day after day, posting links to sites that feature do ads, but very little in the way of original content.

I love Rush Limbaugh, for example, but one site is something like Dittos-Rush dot com, and every day the link is to a video that he (?) didn’t create. Indeed, he did not even offer a single line of follow-up commentary.

At a certain point it’s sort of abusive.

If the video is indeed funny, why not simply post a link to the YouTube video instead of some obscure blog, where they welcome hits but not the effort to cook up material?

I do not think I’m an authority, or that I can order people around, no.

If you look at the site I posted the video from you will see that they do not use Youtube as a source, so maybe it is their video, and whoever posted it to Youtube is the thief.

Besides, I just checked and found the same video on about 5 different sites that do not use an embedded code from Youtube.

The site I posted from is very reputable ande has had many articles and videos posted her by many many different freepers. From what I can tell it is a very reputable newspaper that holds the site called the Enterprise record. It is the same paper that has Anthony Watts, “Watts Up With That blog”. Rush Limbaugh talks about the guy all the time when he brings up global warming because he is a crusader fighting against it. Why would it be bad?

I looked into it and found out that the same company that the paper is owned by the same people who own the Oroville Mercury register, the Sacramento Bee, the Arkansas Gazette, the Minneapolis Tribune, etc. etc,. etc. Do you really think they are trying to infect peoples computers? If so then ban their newspaper sites also.

I don’t think the problem is with you personally, it’s just that some people - and rightly so - are getting tired of being directed to places that generate revenue by the number of clicks they receive.

I think your intentions are innocent; it’s just bad timing. It’s especially annoying when the material is located at a site like YouTube, and/or people intentionally are trying to drive up hits.

Cute video, by the way!

I’m not so sure that’s a true sneezing fit. It looks to me like he got something irritating up his nose from where ever he was poking around. It was cute though.

But the baby panda’s mom and I thought that the one sneeze was a doozie.

The bear cub was pitiful and not funny at all.

Why do I have a sneaking suspicion that somebody put some tasty bait surrounded by pepper back there to get this “hilarious spontaneous footage”.

[Maybe all the dog-poisoners bragging on here are making me twitchy about people’s motives]

Not that I’d connect the two but YouTube can be used to generate revenue, too.

More hits = more money.

Motive.

I dunno. You'd have to ask someone who actually watched the video.

If I want to see a dog with the snots, all I have to do is look across the room at my son's BeagleBradorHoundMutt, who's been running around in circles for three days and spraying everything within three feet of her nose.

Not even close.

The “frying bitch” kept 6 month old Ibizan pups locked up for 23 hours a day, _3, of them per a *medium* size crate_ which is not even enough for *one*.

They ate, drank, slept and stepped in their own filth the whole time.

If they dared to bark in protest of their misery, she beat on their crates with a board to scare them silent.

The confinement messed up their spines and legs.

I have photos ~and~ 3 victims of her “kindness”.
[I did have 4 but one died on election day of ‘08 from spinal degeneration]

Whoever dosed that cub is practically a saint, compared to her.

If she’s literally running in circles and sneezing, you need to get her to a vet.

You could be looking at a deep inner ear/labyrinth issue.

Shriek! OK then, it’s a mere lowly apprentice, a toilet cleaner and wrong-brain thief, really.

What did you do to the frying bitch? The only legal things would be public humiliation, destruction of reputation, a nice animal-cruelty jail sentence, and a fat fine. You already know the other alternative. >:-(

It’s nice that you were able to save two and give them a roomy, loving, forever home.

Oops. “save two” = save three. The extent of the cruelty distracted me. I almost never shriek like that.

Oh, I managed 2 outta 3, including getting a fraudulently registered litter “erased” by the AKC and publicly exposing DNA evidence regarding the same litter that totally slaughtered her already bad reputation but then she croaked before any cruelty charges could be levied.
[she was the cause of a 28 dog ‘abuse rescue’ back in ‘03]

I’ve owned 5 of her trainwrecks and “babysat” 2 of them for extended periods.

One of them got so used to being free and healthy that he became “intolerable” to her when he went back home, pitching fits about being locked back up again so she put him to sleep.

I still feel so guilty about that.

If he’d never known 7 months of happiness, maybe he wouldn’t have protested so much about being caged up again and would have lived longer.

I will always regret allowing her henchmen to come back and get him.

He screamed and tried to claw his way back into my house and when he saw her vehicle in the lane and they made me be the one who picked him up and shoved him into the tiny crate in her van, to be hauled back to Hell in TN.

If I live to be a hundred, I’ll never forget the terror and confusion in his eyes.

I guess he thought he was free forever.

I reckon there was nothing I could do...he was her dog.

*sigh*

I know exactly how you feel. Guilt over the mistakes I’ve made with my animals over the years still gnaws at me and makes me extra kind to my current fuzzy faces. Learning from mistakes is great, but it’s hard when a furbaby is involved.

It wasn’t your fault, and you can be sure that she is frying, or perhaps spit roasting. Yes, I like that better.

And you did win that war before she departed. May she SIH (not RIP).

I keep myself from going crazy by telling myself that he’s young again, healthy, able bodied and free to run forever, now.

Who knows?

Maybe the short time he had with us will cause him to be one of the ones waiting for me.

Hope so, anyway.

I know what you mean by the “making up for it”, now.

Yesterday was Odin’s first birthday.

Along with the trips to the local pet stores, the chewies, the toys, 15 pounds of ground beef for kibble topping and a Quiznos steak sub, he got to drag me along the river, exploring all the mud puddles, trees and waterfowl.

As much as he enjoyed being worshiped by strangers at the pet stores, I think he liked the mud bogging and goose-scaring best.

[it was the “First Annual Bubby Birthday Bash”]

Not sure how I’m gonna top it next year.

[clowns and balloon animals, maybe]...:)

Well, it would be redundant for me to wish Odin a happy birthday at this point since he already had a spectacularly joyous one. But oh, heck.
