While in Western nations ox penis is dried and sold as dog treats, in the Far East it is a common snack and noted to taste—quite inexplicably—as seafood left a bit too long in the pan. Ox penis can be consumed raw, but it's generally cooked by steaming or deep-frying. So if you've got a taste for overcooked squid, then ox penis is definitely the dish for you!

Read the case for red pandas.
...except, sure, they're bigger and fatter and wrinklier and they have longer noses. But hey, they have a sassy attitude, they can sometimes do tricks, and most importantly, they ARE SO FLUFFY. Look at this elephant's fluffy head and back. I just want to rub a balloon against it. Basically just a cat in an elephant's body.
If the Internet loves anything, it's a good sense of humor. Look at this elephant just goofin' around like one of the guys. What a goof! Welcome to the Internet, friend. You'll fit right in.
What are those trunks for if not a good boop right on the nose??? (Except breathing and stuff.) You can practically HEAR this elephant thinking "BOOP!" as he boops this girl right in the face.
This elephant is about to SLAM this basketball into a hoop. You know how many humans can slam dunk? Neither do I. But probably not that many. Elephants, though. Elephants can freakin' slam dunk.
BONUS: This elephant kicking this ball with his BACK LEG. What other animal on the Internet can do this? Answer: No other animal on the Internet.
Unlike cats, elephants enjoy a good romp around town. Take this elephant, for example. Look at the way he rolls around on the beach, soakin' up the sun. He's having a good time.
BONUS: These baby elephants who THINK they're at the beach but they're actually just in a kid-sized pool. It's okay, baby elephants. You can go to the real beach when you're all grown up.
Look at this majestic elephant just floppin' around the mud. I mean, he's FLOPPIN' AROUND IN MUD. But look at how majestic he looks while doing so. Any other animal tries floppin' around the mud, they're just gross. But elephants know how to keep things classy and regal.
Elephants aren't fancy folk. They like to look their best. But also, they don't like to spend a lot of money. So they wear cute little shirts to keep themselves warm. Look at this little elephant romp around in his lil' shirt.
Look, elephants understand the Internet. Fall over a log and you are a viral sensation. This elephant... he gets it. He knows that that little booty would steal our hearts. And it did.
Look at this elephant throwing a temper tantrum. His mom is probably making him go to his grandma's house for dinner, and he's like, "BUT MOOOOMMM." Just like us. Why would he want to go to his grandma's house when there's all this mud to roll around in? He doesn't. And frankly, neither would I.
This is what elephants are all about: A good cuddle with a great friend. Look at how peaceful these two look. They probably spent the whole day talking mostly about elephant things and then taking a nice nap in one another's arms.
Plus, dogs LOVE elephants. These two are basically inseparable.
Look, he fits right in with the guys.
Vote for 'em before they RUN AWAY.
The ocean is filled with beauty and… some pretty creepy things. Here are a few organisms that just look better way down deep in those waves as opposed to on our pristine beaches.

Pardon me sir.
Wow, I don’t think I’ve even heard of that place. What is the length of your visit?
Ha ha, no seriously. What are you actually doing here?
Are you here to collect any kind of intelligence for a foreign government?
Sorry. These are just some routine questions. Please answer as honestly as possible and you’ll be on your way.
Have you already purchased a return ticket?
Oh… so this isn’t even your final destination?
Please don’t cause a scene, sir. As I already mentioned, we ask everyone who crosses our border these kinds of questions.
