1. Yes, but how does it smell?

2. I love those birds, but such a fire hazard.

5. That was amazing. I was thrilled to find out about it.

6. So pretty. Why can't all bugs be this enthrallingly beautiful?

7. The number 5 special at that white guy's 'Chinese' restaurant, comes with egg roll and fried rice.

9. AWWWWWW! When is she going crack open Cartman's head on her belly?

10. Okay, now I know they are just letting any asshole do voiceovers. This guy sounds like he's got anal leakage and is trying to hide it by being as irritating as possible.

1. Hopefully like the thistle flowers it's adorned itself with. (Did you know, by the way, that monarch butterflies smell like cucumbers?)

2. It surely must be :(

5. Yes! It's amazing what nature's come up with already.

6. It looks like a magical spaceship!

7...Did I miss something? Man, there's a lot of shitty-looking links on the sidebar. Also, I'd forgotten to watch the video. Steering powered by carrots :D

Also also, hey, if a hamster can do it, so can you!

Also also also, I just saw this comment: Richard Hammond has been driving for years XD

9...?

10. I know, right? Maybe the mouse tore him to shreds next.

And I'm glad to have entertained you. (That can be a challenge at times ;) )
