Last week I asked readers to help me. My children want a dog and I was trying to convince them a llama would be a better pet. My fabulous readers came to my rescue: some supporting the dog idea and others encouraging me to get a llama. I even received numerous suggestions for other pets. It was the typical list of pet ideas: hedgehogs and elephants to name a few.
Last night a reader, @BrerMatt, tweeted a video link to me with the ultimate pet: a puppy-sized elephant. I realized, after watching the video, that I must live under a rock because I have never heard of the Vlog Brothers. But apparently the rest of the world knows about John and Hank Green. And puppy-sized elephants are all over the internet because of their video.
While spewing on about puppy-sized elephants, John (one of the two Vlog Brothers) somehow works in The Brothers Karamazov, a personal request to Evolution, rainbows, Photoshop, insular dwarfism, and Helen Hunt. I had to share the video.
You can follow John on Twitter @realjohngreen. His bio on Twitter is: “I write books (books are like tweets, except longer).” I promise his tweets are just as entertaining.
John and Hank are hard to describe. You just have to watch a few videos to get an idea of their type of crazy. It’s a bit like The Bloggess, but without profanity and zombies. Just pure crazy. And funny.
Oh, and to let you know, we have settled on the idea of a dog. I lost the llama battle. Thanks for your help with this big decision.
Enjoy your day!
