Brian Shares Saturday: More of Ebeneezer the Sloth, Dolphin Preachers, & Bunnicula (Oh and by the Way, it’s Cold as Fuck)

I’ve spent a lot of time writing posts to ensure that next week is covered, but I forgot to prepare for today!

Luckily, Brian has been extra awesome thanks to the wonderful compliments that he’s been receiving for his part in the Brian Shares Segment of my little blog.

Here are just a few of the things that he has sent me this week…

Ebeneezer, Our Future Sloth

For those of you who are new here, Brian and I had been discussing the possibility of a pet, when we realized that what we really wanted was a baby sloth. So from time to time, he sends me videos, pictures, and gifs of sloths to share with you. which is probably why sloth searches are the number 1 Google search that leads people here. Crazy sloth lovers.

What’s really funny about this, though, is that in order to ensure that I receive said pictures and videos, Brian often will send them to me via text, e-mail, and G-chat.

Dolphin Preachers

I realize that the term “Dolphin preacher” is ridiculous in its own right. But shit. Once you see this picture, I hope you laugh your ass off as much as I did. I was at Mom’s when I read it, and she told me I was going to hell. C’est la vie?

Dolphins Neptune God of the Sea Preachers

I think that I was a dolphin in another life, so I feel like I have a special bond with the sea faring mammals. In fact, I’ll be seeing my best friends soon enough (Read: THIS WEEK).

Bubble Sports

Brian sent this gif to me with the title: THIS LOOKS LIKE FUN! To me I thought: This looks like life! I NEED one of these. Desperately. Then I can happily make it through life without, you know, falling down.

Cool right?

Bunnicula

Please. Please PLEASE tell me you know what I’m talking about. Because Brian didn’t. First, he sent me this adorable gif of bunnies.

Bunnicula

And I responded with OMG yes! We need one! Please?!?! We could name him Bunnicula. And love him. And squeeze him. And feed him tomatoes!

And Brian responded… “Why Bunnicula?”

UGH! Only the greatest Bunny on the planet! Bunnicula, resident rabbit of the Howliday Inn. Obviously.

Cold as Fuck

It’s about to get cold here in the Chicagoland area… and just in case you are not as lucky as me to be escaping the brief cold weather of your home city, you should go pick up a pair of these sweet ass gloves. In fact, pick me up a pair while you’re at it. I’m going to be back in the Chi soon enough.

Cold as Fuck Gloves

Scrabble Genius Bonus

Brian found this quick blurb about Scrabble and I figured that it was important to share it with you. Should the letter values in Scrabble change? I think not. But that is because I am an evil Scrabble genius, according to Katie.

Brian Shares Saturday: The Jig is Up

Well, I knew it would happen eventually…but not this quickly. Brian is now actively looking for things to impress and amuse you. I get e-mails like this one:

“Pic for Sunday blog”

Then, I have to explain to him that it’s Saturday’s blog post. And he says to me, “Whatever. It’s a cute picture. Are you going to post it?”

“Well, obviously.  I mean, check out the awesome product placement of the Bed, Bath, and Beyond coupon (Did you know that you can use those puppies long after they’ve expired? The bartender’s roommates’ mom taught me that. I guess I learned something from the relationship after all.) And the can of Sprite. And the book, which looks sort of interesting, “Inside of a Dog.” That shit didn’t happen by accident.

Then, after explaining it to him…he says, “OK, whatever… and this one:”

Ninja Baby

“Brian, you’ve sent me that one twice, already.”

“Ha! Well…it was awesome.”

Brian was worried my mom would find this offensive, because of the Jesus reference, but I think she would laugh. Mom? What do you think?

Obama versus Jesus

And finally for this week, Sprint buys out U.S. Cellular in the Midwest markets. As I have convinced Brian to switch over to my Sprint account, in order to save money AND get $50 Samsung Galaxy S III’s on Black Friday…he keeps me posted with all of the interesting Sprint news. While this may not have been intended to make the Quirky Chrissy list of Brian’s shares…it did indeed.

Oh! I’ll throw in one more for good luck. As I mentioned the other day, my apartment has been giving me a headache. Brian took it upon himself to do a little extra research. And found that it might be formaldehyde in the new carpet…for about 5 seconds. He revoked the statement after debunking the internet with this article about formaldehyde in carpet. But then The Bloggess started following me on Twitter…so the Gchat conversation changed completely out of excitement.

So, Brian may be actively trolling the internet for great memes and gifs, which means that you’ll only get the best of the best from now on…And I’ll have lots of things to cherry pick. My Top Secret Mission has come to a close. Happy weekend!
