TDG: Prairie Dogs

So, the Internet, in its infinite wisdom, has just taught me that “prairie dogging” actually has two meanings. It doesn’t just mean what I thought it meant: the phenomenon in which a bunch of cubicle-dwelling office workers peek over their cube walls to see what’s going on. NO! It also refers to pooping. I needn’t go any further.

That’s probably the least appealing lead-in to cute animal pictures that anyone’s ever written. The three of you who are still reading will be well rewarded with several hilarious/adorable pictures of prairie dogs. Go on, you’ve earned it.
