Sunday Funnies: Monday Edition!

So some of my young friends have moved on for the summer, and some have graduated, and have moved on pretty much forever. It's a bittersweet time of year for me; I may see them briefly when they pass through town again, but we'll slowly loose touch with each other. On the other hand, they're so pleased to be done, and, rightfully, so proud of their accomplishments, and so eager to move on to the "real world" or graduate school, that it's impossible for me to be "sad" about it. (If only they knew the reality of either the real world or grad school... I enjoy saying, only a little facetiously, that the worst mistake I ever made in my life was applying for graduation.) But at any rate, to those newly minted graduates, and to those who've successfully defended recently (Yay, Amy! Yay, Ben!), I offer my hearty contragulations...
Sorry, Ian; I don't think we met, but I'm seriously hoping your life turns out better than that cake. Jen over at cakewrecks has been running disasterous gradcakes all week. This is one of my favorites. And what goes better with cake than a nice cup of freshly brewed coffee? What? Alright, who left the pot empty?

From here, via Buzzfeed. It's getting hot enough now that some nice cold water is a good alternative, though. Unless there's a hippopotamus in it. Or a dog pretending to be a hippopotamus; then it would be much too dangerous...

From Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. Criggo is one of my favorite humor sites, where the tagline is "Newspapers are going away. That's too bad." So when I realized I didn't have anything from there in my lineup, I just had to go find something that fit the theme... this one does so admirably.
So this doggie would like you to desist from using gelatin desserts to ease the irritation:
(The title of this post was "I'm getting really sick of this nickname.") From Pets Who Want to Kill Themselves. And speaking of poop, I think I can say with a high degree of confidence that the last thing the world needs is a toilet that decorates...

(see more Engrish) ...and if I was to come across that sign, I would definitely take the advice of the following plan:

There are other body funtions, of course. For example, boogers...
(From Saturday Bulletin) ...and menstrual cycles, which have recently been shown to be susceptable to mathematical analysis: (XKCD)Then there are the bodies that function just fine, but underwent some quirky development. This young woman (I assume it's a young woman) seems to have taken it all in stride, with a cheeky sense of humor.
(From bmezine, this post. Front page here, but many posts NSFW; I think the name stands for Body Modification e-zine)

Rather than humor, this kitteh has reacted with rage at being implanted with a terminator eye.funny pictures of cats with captions

And this kitteh is shaken by what it has witnessed in today's "funnies" so far.

This little kitteh invented an entirely unique language...

...while this ketteh has merely expanded the definition of "black hole." Nothing that enters the box has a chance of escape.

Speaking of black holes, Pictures For Sad Children suggests they may be just wild and crazy parties at an atomic level:
What with budget cuts and all, I imagine many of you are being forced to economize. I hope you are not the one being economized! Have a good week at work, and try to keep in mind that however bad things may get, there's always a high probability they're going to could get much, much worse.
