Well, it is that time of the year. We will all be inundated my Holiday this and Holiday that. So, here is mine! It is a very simple picture, yet, it is somewhat funny. I doubt the dog put the hat on himself!

First of all I would like to apologize for not posting in so long. I have been incredibly busy.
The blobfish, looking quite blobular indeed and nonetheless sounding as if a two-year old named it, is currently in danger of extinction due to deep sea fishing off the coasts of Australia and Tasmania. It inhabits waters where the pressure is so high that a normal "gas bladder" would imbalance its buoyancy. The blobfish, whose skin consists of mainly gelatinous matter, doesn't have much muscle, but it doesn't need it either. It just consumes whatever food floats by it near the ocean floor. Talk about laziness.
Admittedly, I cannot convince you that the blobfish possesses some redeeming qualities that make it "cute" (Yes, I'm sure I convinced most of you that skunks are, in fact, cute). When I first stumbled upon this animal, I was sure it was fake- a replica of some alien or even a made-up inspiration for Jabba the Hutt in Star Wars.
