Today, a brief break from the manosphere. Instead, we’re exploring what you might call the Capybarasphere. Enjoy these ten* videos and gifs of capybaras enjoying themselves in their inimitable way.
Hey, folks! I still exist. I’m just having another unplanned migraine vacation — same thing yesterday — so I may not get to posting anything today beyond this.
The 4th quarter 2016 We’ve Got a Bigger Problem Now WHTM pledge drive is almost over! If you like the blog, please donate what you can! THANKS!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: If you’re thoroughly sick of seeing Donald Trump’s orange mug plastered all over the internet, there’s a handy little Chrome extension that replaces Trump pics with adorable pics of kittens.
