Yeah……Try To Get A Cat To Laugh Like This. Birds Rock.

There is always a sometimes a discussion amongst staff members as to what is a better pet – cats, birds or dogs.

This bird simply laughs at the idea that there is even a competition.

We love how the bird seems to open the door and gives an evil laugh as if to say “you thought a door could hold me in?”

Cute stuff.

Going To Sleep.

We were working on a project on the computer last night and when we were able to shut the computer down and go to sleep, we were happy campers. Unfortunately, Bill Gates and his minions had other ideas for us, which reminded us of this cartoon we saw the other day:


Ain’t it truth? The absolute truth?

Ya gotta laugh at this one….

How’d We Miss This?

Too bad it was only on display for one day.

The trick for the National Air and Space Museum was to display the plane in its jet formation. The plane has only been displayed publically in the propeller configuration. The new design was made possible by the plane’s shape shifting properties. Although The Museum of Flight staff was concerned about this formation change, they worked with our conservation staff so that the shift was safe and temporary. Once the shift took place the jet underwent a total review by our conservation department and appears to be in remarkable shape.

The plane was originally housed in an undisclosed location near Washington, DC from about 1941 to the early 1970s. In 1975, the plane was moved to another location in Southern California where it stayed until 1979. After 1979, the jet went missing. It was through the careful work of The Museum of Flight staff and former Army nurse Lieutenant Diana Prince that the plane was finally discovered on a quiet estate in Potomac, Maryland in 2012. After the discovery, The Museum of Flight moved the plane to Seattle where it went on display in April of 2013.

The jet is well ahead of its time. It used stealth technologies in the 1950s long before the Lockheed YF-12A and the SR-71 Blackbird were introduced. The engines on this plane allowed Wonder Woman to travel through space. Keep in mind that NASA’s North American X-15 took the United States to the edge of space in the 1960s, but it was Amazonian technology that had Wonder Woman traveling into deep space in the 1950s.

Captain America and The Avengers Movie.

If you are somewhat of a geek or just enjoy the Avengers movie series, today is the opening day for the highly anticipated and much hyped Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Of course, one of the Avengers is good ol’ Captain America. So what better way to celebrate going to see the movie with a Captain America pizza?

The person on the video is someone named Rosanna Pansino who is a bakes as a hobby and just seems to be having fun.

What caught our eye was that this is not her first time making Captain America themed desserts.

There is her take on “Captain America Ice Cream Sandwiches:”

Things That Make Us Laugh.

There are times when after dealing with politics and some of the more stressful things we look at here at Raised on Hoecakes, we need a laugh.

Today, that laugh is provided by Amazon. Most of us know that you can get almost everything from Amazon, but we didn’t expect to get a laugh from them. Maybe they sell Photoshop lessons as well?

Oh Those Nutty Geometry And Trig Professors.

Professor Matthew Winters of Biola University in Southern California followed his tradition of pranking students on April 1 with interactive videos.

We feel a little bit of an obligation to note that Biola describes itself this way:

Biola University is a private Christian university located in Southern California. For over 100 years, Biola — a community where all faculty, staff and students are professing Christians — has been committed to biblically centered education, intentional spiritual development and vocational preparation.

Once again this shows that Christians are not all stuck up and don’t ever have any fun. In fact, one of God’s greatest gifts to us is the ability to laugh and enjoy each others company.
