Capybaras are one of our favourite animals ever. They’re essentially labrador-sized hamsters whose only interests are chilling in the water, chilling next to some water, or just chilling wherever is most convenient.
Animals sitting on other animals is another of our favourite things, because interspecies friendship make us feel like the animal kingdom secretly is more like a Disney movie than we imagined.
It will then come as no surprise that Animals Sitting On Capybaras has become our new favourite Tumblr. Here’s a selection of their best:
Does the capybara look like he cares? Of course he doesn’t. He’s just going about his capybara business.
The monkeys seem quite agitated, but we’re not even sure the capybara has noticed them. He’s just relaxing, possibly lost in his capybara thoughts.
Capybara Island. Like Boris Island, but not rubbish and generally comfier.
This is the first One Direction video we have ever watched from start to finish. It will probably also be the last.
Update: apparently this isn’t a totally made up song, but actual genuine One Direction lyrics. We know, we’re gobsmacked as well.
The hashtag #youngpoliticians started by @SturdyAlex yesterday showed us that today’s MPs and ministers once (mostly) looked like normal human beings, but can you guess who they are?
We’re pleasantly surprised by the long, flowing hair, yet terrified at how empty his eyes look.
The ginger hair just gives him away, doesn’t it?
Big hair, choker necklace: she could have easily started an alternative career as a glamorous witch.
Is he… is he wearing eye-liner?
Quite an easy one, considering that his face hasn’t actually changed since then.
You can already see the look of betrayal in his still-innocent eyes.
This is actually really cute.
Excellent facial hair - very much a young Sheriff of Nottingham.
Likes: headwear. Dislikes: Romanians & Bulgarians.
Back when he looked like a moody dandy, instead of a grumpy old man.
Looking like a particularly melancholic 1980’s New Romantic singer here.
Very decent 1970’s French philosopher look. Two thumbs up.
He hasn’t changed either, which makes sense when you consider the fact that he’s almost certainly not human.
"God I love being on a gap yah, just chilling in my sarong."
More sexy, young politicians via the magic of the #youngpoliticians hashtag.
There’s one of Jacob Rees-Mogg as well. How could we possibly forget Jacob Rees-Mogg.
