Misadventures and Sloths in Online Dating

Dear Sillies,

Remember Einstein, who breeds and milks sloths? I haven't heard back from him since I suggested that the greatest challenge in milking a sloth involves getting high enough in a tree to securely grasp its "utters." [If you hear about a man falling from a tree while attempting to milk a sloth, you can thank me for that one.] But it's not all discouraging, friends. One cute, witty man sent me these True Facts about the Sloth. I rarely post videos here, yet this one's short (2:19) and TRULY worthy. Unfortunately, I'm out of the sender's age range, but we benefit from this entertaining video.

Have a great week.
Keep a smile, and be glad that you are not a sloth.

  1. No, I'm sure a dead sloth does not move three feet per minute.
    That was hilarious!
    Especially after seeing Zootopia this weekend. The sloths all worked at the DMV.

    1. Hahaha. I love that the DMV was run by sloths, Alex. That movie sounds like a must-see. Thank you.

  3. Let's see, pride, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, wrath and sloth. Modest creatures, sloths. Frankly I doubt I could be as modest with one of the 7 deadly sins named after me.

  5. I am not certain whether I warmed to the sloth or the narrator of that charming video more.

  6. Sloths fascinate me, but I can't say I've ever felt a desire to milk one. :-D

  8. I'm just curious why this cute, witty man went out of his way to send you a sloth video if you are out of his age range?

    1. It was kinda like a mutual quick glance (initiated by me, probably) at a bar. And then upon closer encounter, he sees a few gray hairs and head for the hills, after dropping crucial info on the sloth.

  10. The video is hilarious. But I wonder why he had to start off by pronouncing the plural as sloths-s. I obsessed about that for the remaining two minutes! It's like people who say breakfasts-s!

    1. Haha. I was too, but I think it was a purposeful move to elongate the "s". Kinda like how some men say "breasts-ssss".

  11. LOL! I loved the bit about algae growing on them because they move so slow. They are rather cute though.

  12. I love every zfrank video ...the guy is hilarious. His video Sad Cat Diary is my favorite video of all time. (Probably because the cats he uses pretty much mirrors my own cat's bad attitude)

    I think we can be thankful that the sloth guy hasn't responded. If he doesn't get your great sense of humor, he's not worthy.

    1. Thank you, Cheryl. Sloth guy is probably still climbing a tree.

    1. Well, no, but I'm out of his. I'll be damn or Jennifer Lopez if I'm going to have a big age difference. I don't mind, so long as it's in my favor.

  14. So, I'm a "Ten Toed Sloth"? Good to know. I'm going back to bed. After lunch.

    1. It could be worse. You could be an Eleven Toed Sloth. Now that's just weird!

    2. Just woke up. What's that about 11 toes?

  15. I could learn a lot from a sloth. Except crossing the street. That I would learn from s gazelle.

  16. That was great! The algae growing on their fur serving as camouflage part made me laugh. :) Hope you're having a good week!

  17. ZEFrank is the best. Such a funny guy. If we ever get rich enough, we want to hire him to follow behind us and narrate our entire lives in that wonderful pseudo-Morgan Freeman voice of his.

  18. I had a really funny comment, but we have the local news on and they just announced that the former hangout of a motorcycle gang that got busted by the FBI is being turned into a yoga studio and I completely lost my train of thought.

    1. So those big Harley dudes will be doing the tree pose? I'd like to see that.

  19. A very informative video! It's actually very civilised of them to do their business at ground level rather than pissing and shitting on people from a great height. Have you sent the video to Einstein?

    1. I haven't. It's probably way above his head, GB, unless he's high in a tree - which he likely is.

  20. Well worth the 2 minutes!

    I'm sold. That lazy critter is my kind of pet...as long as I can time getting him outside on the right day of the week for the business doing.
