RIP Rik Mayall.
This baby sloth just loves hangin’ out. Sloth is hand-made out of sterling silver and has a matte finish. He hangs on a sterling silver cable chain. Sloth is about 1” wide.
This sloth’s habitat is currently Etsy.
Have sloth, will chill.
A male marvelous spatuletail perches in a lek (an assembly area where animals carry on display and courtship behavior) near Pomacoches in northern Peru. The species gets its name from the male’s two longest tail feathers, which can be controlled independently and play a major role in the hummingbird’s courtship displays. The spatuletail is considered by many to be the world’s most spectacular hummingbird, but it is also one of the rarest. Confined to a small region in northern Peru, only 500-800 marvelous spatuletails are estimated to remain.

You know, I’m amazed how we don’t judge the choices that rich white men make. Look at how we don’t prosecute bank executives who illegally foreclosed on middle class families and rigged international lending rates. Look at how we defend mutli-million dollar pay packages for CEOs running their companies into the ground and yet scrutinize even a 10-cent increase in the minimum wage. Look at how we make excuses for male politician after politician who drop their pants and then make comebacks (pun intended!).
But poor women, especially poor women of color, immigrant women—we judge every choice they make. We judge them if they have children. We judge them if they get abortions and don’t have children. We don’t care that General Electric doesn’t pay any taxes— but we care that poor women of color collect public assistance AND have too nice of a cell phone.

Because an iPhone is not a priority and if I pay my taxes and contribute to her income, I can definitely complain.
mom: why are you always asking for money?
