Whether you love it or hate it, there's no avoiding Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, TLC's new unscripted show spotlighting one of its Toddlers & Tiaras cuties.
The show features the antics of 6-year-old Alana Thompson, who competes in child beauty pageants, and her self-proclaimed "craaazy family." The little leading lady now has a new secret weapon to help her on the pageant circuit: an adorable baby pig named Glitzy.
"Glitzy, we're going to be the prettiest girls at the pageant," Alana tells the (male) pig. "And there's no way we can't win because I got me a pig. How about that?"
We're hoping to see more of Glitzy (and his blinged-out crowns) on tonight's new episode of Honey Boo Boo, airing at 10/9c.
When you walk down the streets of Paris, the Poodle prancing in the promenade doesn’t say “Woof! Woof!” She barks, “Oauf! Ouaf!”
It's the same idea with the rooster waking everyone up in Madrid — his "cock-a-doodle-doo!" is "¡quiquiriquí!"
A recent article from Care2.com, "What Does a Cat Say In Japanese? In French? In Greek?" got us thinking: The words we use to describe what animals say are usually onomatopoeic, but not every language interprets these sounds the same way. Take pigs for example, they make vastly different noises around the world. In English, pigs oink, but in Japanese, they say, "Būbū."
So, if you’re planning any international trips, or even if you're just a lover of languages, we've got a handy guide to what our furry and feathered friends are saying across the world. We’ve employed Google Translator and, of course, a few online language dictionaries to help determine the sounds.
And yes, we highly encourage you to practice saying these sounds out loud at the top of your lungs.
While you might think a pig and a parrot would have absolutely nothing in common and could never get along, besties Xena and Jazz will prove you wrong.
Besides living in the same house in Brisbane, Australia, Xena, a five-month-old mini pig, and Jazz, a 16-month-old quaker parrot, share a love of play.
Owner Nichole Willett says the unlikely pair act like brother and sister and Xena is the wild one of the duo, “she loves to chase Jazz around the house.”
We wonder how long it takes before Jazz starts making oinking sounds and Xena attempts to fly.
Just look at this ballerina piglet admiring herself in the mirror! She knows she looks good.
The teeny-tiny porker, named Tallulah, lives at Pennywell Farm in southwestern England. She's a miniature pig (also known as a micro or teacup pig) and is featured in a 2013 wall calendar by photographer Richard Austin. Tallulah and her friends — Clara, Gordon, Dexter and more — also pose in champagne glasses and tiny wheelbarrows.
Animals are seriously cute when they're curled up all on their own, but a case could be made that they are even cuter when they're cozied up with their fellow furry or feathered friends.
