It’s not a dog. It’s not a bird. It’s a Dird!
Welcome back to the Department of Awesome Animal Hybrids. Eat Liver assembled an entertaining collection of skillfully photoshopped images that place bird heads onto dog bodies and sometimes the other way round. The combination works surprisingly well.
Head over to Eat Liver to view more Dirds.

“There will be no bargain. I will not give up my favorite decoration. I like my honey where it is.”
Clermont, Florida-based illustrator Kenny Durkin (previously featured here) created this awesome mashup of Star Wars and Winnie-the-Pooh. It’s Winnie the Hutt! All of Kenny’s character combinations are wonderful, but we’re particularly taken by Tigger, who makes a perfect Salacious Crumb.
We can’t celebrate the return of Movember without mentioning Hamilton the Hipster Cat and his awesome white mustache (previously featured here). But instead of sharing a photo of Hamilton himself, we wanted to share this extraordinary image of Jeff dressed up as Hamilton during the week of staff costumes leading up to Halloween at the Archie McPhee store. The resemblance is truly uncanny.
The internet has found another awesomely entertaining use for googly eyes and it’s here on Tumblr as a new blog called Googly Eye Books. Any and all book covers become something wonderfully silly as soon as you add a googly eye or two. Viewers are also welcome to submit their own googly-eyed books to the site.
The images you see here are a very small sample of the entertainment in store. Follow Googly Eye Books to see them all.
And remember, whenever you need more googly eyes, our Googly Eye shop has got you covered.

Any animal that resembles a muppet is automatically awesome in our books. The unusually plush and clam-like fish in this video, shot at a Japanese aquarium, is called a Starry Handfish or Red Batfish. It looks like something dreamt up by The Jim Henson Company, but it’s a very real fish found on the continental shelves of the Indo-Pacific oceans at depths of between 50 and 400 m. They grow up to 30 cm (11.8 in) long and would probably make fast friends with Animal.
Portland-based photographer Carli Davidson uses a high-speed camera to capture those hilariously awesome freeze-frame shots of dogs in mid-shake. She just published a collection of these delightful photos as a book entitled Shake.
The amusing portraits seem to transform ordinary pets into strangely distorted animals right out of a cartoon. Known for her candid and heartfelt portraits of pets and wildlife, Davidson first began photographing animals while working with the animal care team at the Oregon Zoo. Shake was partially inspired by her own dog Norbert whose drool she regularly scrubs from the walls of her home due to his frequent shaking.
