The Petting Zoo: The Week’s Top 10 Animal Videos

By Kelly Conaboy / August 8, 2012

Oh, brother. Want to know about something that I don’t care about at all? Everyone is screaming “yes,” right? “Tell us tell us tell us tell us tell us!!” Well, fine, something that I don’t care about at all is SHARK WEEK, which begins this weekend, on Sunday. Ugh. Olympics and Shark Week back-to-back? It’s like television and social media have turned against me, all at once! Shark Week annoys me a lot because — Well, really I am very impressed with whoever came up with the idea for “Shark Week” because what a genius that person was. What a genius way to get a bunch of jerks who couldn’t care one bit about sharks or the Discovery Channel in general all year long to, for some reason, go bananas over sharks for a week in August every year. Head’s up, jerks: YOU DON’T CARE ABOUT SHARKS! And neither do I! I do think that the buzz about “Shark Week” has died down over the years, but not enough to not annoy me so much. I apologize if you do care about sharks, though. Maybe you studied them in college? If so, I can understand your excitement about Shark Week. Finally, people are paying attention to the thing that you love. That must be very nice for you! But everyone else is a lying jerk. Either a lying jerk or someone just trying to find a little joy and camaraderie in this bleak world. ONE OF THE TWO! Anyway, let’s get to the animal videos!

1. Perfect Family Needs To Get A Deer Out Of Their House

Wow, what an enjoyable family! GIVE THAT FAMILY A TV SHOW! But every episode is 5 minutes long and it’s only them trying to get different kinds of animals out of their house. Perfect. Perfect show idea. Pretty much the rest of the top five are just cute puppies this week? I apologize for the lack of diversity there, but I only have what the Internet provides, and this week the Internet has provided A LOT of cute puppies. This is, of course, with the exception of the surprise frog attack. I hope your speakers weren’t up to loud! My apologies if they were, but not really, because sometimes you just have to LIVE A LITTLE!
