Weird stuff on the Internet, part the bajillionth

Well, that image is certainly bio-diverse, I'll grant them that. That buzzard better watch out, though. He follows through and bites down on whatever that giant chipmunk is holding, and he's toast.

I also find it curious that an agency of a state with 75 million inhabitants has to go with a Yahoo account for its email address.
