OK, I am daring you to name one thing in the universe that could possibly be cuter than this baby flying squirrel that is small enough to fit in the palm of a hand, with room left over. And look at those big eyes. I’m dying of the cuteness over here.
Originally, a scene with an insect called the Jitterbug was shot for the movie. It involved a dance sequence with Dorothy, the Tin Man, Cowardly Lion and Scarecrow, but was ultimately cut due to time constraints. However, you can still hear a reference to the scene in the movie when the Wicked Witch of the West sends the flying monkeys after the gang. She says,
“Take your army to the Haunted Forest, and bring me that girl and her dog.
Do as you like with the others, but I want her alive and unharmed!
They’ll give you no trouble. I promise you that.
I’ve sent a little insect on ahead to take the fight out of them.
Take special care of those ruby slippers.
I want those most of all. Now fly!”
This is a fun story. Apparently, a young hotel worker in England was “surprised” to discover that a baby bat had been hiding in her bra for several hours before its movements (which were originally mistaken for the vibrating of her cell phone) prompted closer inspection. I’m just thinking that she must have been wearing a pretty big bra for her to not notice that a fucking bat was hiding in there! I mean, I’m hauling around an impressive rack myself, and I think I’d notice if there was a bat in my bra. Geez.
In light of the recent, highly controversial wardrobe debacle involving MIT student Star Simpson, I invite you to tempt fate on your next trip to the airport by wearing one of these staggeringly hilarious slogan T Shirts from Shirts On A Plane. I’m ordering one in time for my trip home for the holidays!
