Barking mad

Hello, blog fans. It's Luna DeLune here!

For years, I've been trying to convince my friends and colleagues of the importance of looking after their pets' mental health. And now, with the sorry case of Stink Delavigne, everyone is finally interested in what I have to say.

I first became interested in the field of animal psychology when a cat friend of mine began displaying signs of bipolar disorder. One day, she'd be insanely happy, purring at 60 decibels, and the next, she'd spend hours and hours lying on her favorite cushion, staring into space. I knew something was wrong. So I enrolled in an online animal psychology course, and I haven't looked back!

Anyway, here are a few tips for those of you with mentally-troubled pets:

  • Listen to your pets. They may not be able to talk, but animals have ways of signaling their feelings (purring, barking, urinating on the couch, biting children's arms off, etc.).
  • Talk to your pets. It has not yet been proven by science that animals can understand human speech, but I for one am fairly certain that they can. And besides, what have you got to lose apart from your dignity?
  • Respect your pets. Don't forget that animals are people too!
Do you have any tips that you'd like to share with us? I'm always open to new suggestions!

Also, what did you make of Dr. Gilchrist, the dog psychologist from New Zealand who diagnosed Stink in this month's Funky Friday? Personally, I think he was a charlatan and deserves to be sent to prison. For life. How about you?!

The World Cup of English

Hi folks, Bruno Delavigne here.

If you're anything like me, you're currently soaking in a golden-plated Jacuzzi, sipping a high-quality adult beverage and eating gummi bears off of the well-toned bellies of foreign super-models... or possibly you're preparing yourself for the greatest sporting event of all, the World Cup! And while I'm sure you're each rooting for your own favorite teams (I'm personally rooting for the North Koreans to show the world that their expertise lies in football, and not just soviet-era nuclear-grade plutonium harvesting), I think you should all take a little trip to leMonde to play The WORLD CUP OF ENGLISH, brought to you by the good people at GymGlish. Here's the link for today's match:

Don't forget to vote, and of course let us know who you're rooting for in the comment section of the blog!
