We Don’t Do New Year’s Resolutions, But If We Did…..

We don’t make resolutions for a new year. We too much of a realist and recognize we won’t keep them.

But if we were to make resolutions, perhaps we could take a lesson or two from cats and dogs.

From cats:

And from dogs:

Best News Bloopers.

Live TV is not always easy. (But it can often be hysterical.)

Alexa And Petra The Parrot Who Wants All The Lights On.

Oh dear. The parrots are now talking with Alexa.

One For Grins.

We don’t normally forward or post videos with “catz” or “dogz” being cute and all that.

But birds, on the other hand, are different.

Cockatiels rock.

Dear Ellie.

Here at Raised on Hoecakes, we often get emails from people offering services and content for posts. These are always spam emails and like most people we hate spam emails that clutter our mail boxes and waste our time.

A few days ago, we got an email from some woman named Ellie in the UK. She was offering a “free infographic” on the human body. We know that the infograph would have all sorts of references to her company, (an overly expensive web design company) which means the infograph is just an advertisement.

As we have said, we don’t do advertisements here and we don’t do businesses with less than reputable companies.

Instead of replying angrily about her being unprofessional (friends don’t let friends spam) we went another direction.

(We are showing the emails in order and have removed all references to the company for which Ellie works.)

Hey Team,

As a really brief intro, I’m Ellie and between acting out scenes from Frozen with my two little boys (yep, boys – why couldn’t they just have been obsessed with dinosaurs or spiders?! Deep breath – let it go Ellie) I design infographics here at [company name redacted] 🙂

Anyway, I’m sure you’re super busy so I’ll keep it short.

I’ve created an infographic for a client titled ‘20 Gross and Gruesome Facts about the Human Body’. The whole infographic has been custom designed (all characters were hand-created) and the facts are really interesting (and pretty gruesome)!

I’ve been tasked with the job of raising some awareness around the graphic (in the hope that people actually like my work lol) and wondered if you thought it might be something entertaining for your audience (especially with Halloween just around the corner)? If not I completely understand – I’ll just lose my job and won’t be able to eat for a month (think of my poor cats).

Would you mind very much if I send it across for you to take a look at?

Thank you for your time Team!

Kindest regards



Friends in Safe Spaces.

Well done.

Don’t Park Like A Jerk.

There are some bleeped out words in this which may or may not make it NSFW, but the message is spot on.

(And we may adopt “bowel movement head” to describe some people. It fits.)
