Via a retweet from Rachel Herrmann (@Raherrmann) from Rachel Moss (@menysnoweballes), we find the perfect diversion for this sunny Thursday morning in North America: The Toast’s Mallory Ortberg on “Two Medieval Monks Invent Bestiaries.” The explanation:
MONK #1: can cows sail boats?
MONK #2: hahaha no
they have to put wheels on the boat and roll it over land
Those ladies at The Toast are always a scream! Clicquez a vos risques, as we like to say around here. How does the knight get the fish to stand at attention? Enchantment, surely! But the horse looks more than a little dismayed. . .

Hilariously, I skipped straight from this Toast article to your blog in my feed reader! Mallory is a gem.
Inorite? Too funny. Wish I could emulate her.
That one dogge with its tongue out looks funny.
She is truly a national treasure.
I can’t stop looking at the fucken doggge with its tongue out.
