Doctors hate him, men want to be him.


I went to the zoo for the first time this summer in what must have been over 15 years. As I walked in the first little exhibit had a crowd of people around it watch two tortoises having sex. It was so grotesque and slow, the look on their faces was joyless. Yet I couldnt stop watching


Sllllow and steady, saved his race.


Finally cashing in on his pension.


Uhhh.. did anyone ask him if he WANTED to retire?
