Friday Ferretbloging: Bucky vs. the Stuffed Thing from Hell

So. My brother owns a video arcade. I don’t know how to play video games well, so when I go in there togive him shit visit him and his fine establishment, I usually skip the Dance Dance Revolution and just feed money into that claw thing that hauls stuffed animals out at you once in a while. I suck at that, too, but everyone does. Unfortunately, my competitive instincts kick in, and I spend like 20 bucks trying to get something I don’t even really want because not getting it is just pissing me off.

Which, recently, led to me winning this unholy thing:


What IS THAT? At first I thought it was a punk thrash tiger of some kind, but it has a dog tail, and it’s PINK. It looks like Ziggy Stardust and the Cowardly Lion crawled into the thing that was in The Fly and this is what came out. It has a look on its plushy face like it’s thinking of interesting ways to eat my soul. It freaks me out.

So I gave it to Bucky.

HE LOVES IT. Oh, my God, he loves it so much. He takes it everywhere. He drags it across the room, cuddles with it, kisses it, reprimands it when it’s found not where he put it. He made a nest for it and its equally ugly mate (which I spent another 20 bucks winning) in a box and spends hours putting them into the box and taking them back out again. It is his most favorite thing in the world next to his food dish.

That’s at least 20 bucks’ worth of entertainment, right there.

  1. That is by far, without a doubt, bar none, the funniest damned thing I’ve ever seen. That rodent is a classic…

  2. did I spy the Monty Python Killer Rabbit laying there on the floor, totally ignored?

  3. “reprimands it when it’s found not where he put it.”
    I’m still laughing over the mental images that inspires. The video is pretty awesome, but I’d love to see video of this “HEY! I didn’t put you there. What are you doing, moving like that? When I put you somewhere, you STAY there!”

  4. Um, ferrets are closer to being ‘dingos’ than ‘rodents’, just sayin’.
    Bucky is teh awesomest! 🙂

  5. Awwwww!
    If Bucky needs any more stuffies to love, I’ve got loads left over from the Mardi Gras parades. My favorite stuffed animal hybrids are the ducks with teddy bear bodies.

  6. Hilarious. It’s no easy feat for Bucky to drag that thing around, but he’s going to do it, damn it!

  7. Yeah, that’s the Killer Rabbit. I had it up on the table. He bribed Riot to go up there and knock it off so he could claim it as his own.
    Cheeky little squirrel.

  8. I recognize that animals are way smarter than scientists give them credit for, but you have a ferret who is playing house. With his dolls.
    Does he like them because they do what he says? Those live creatures are so determined to have a mind of their own.

  9. That’s the cutest damned thing I’ve seen on the internets all week! And he does look like a little girl playing house with her stuffed animals.
