Different Strokes

The cheetah is the fastest land animal.

The picture at the right depicts the work of artist Guido Daniele. The human hand is his canvas. His works of art, which take three to four hours to complete, survive only long enough to be photographed before being washed down the drain with soap and water.

I was also struck by his representation of the American bald eagle, which appears below. I discovered this artist and his works in the recent issue of Readers Digest. There were photographs of several more examples of his work, including an elephant, a dog, and another eagle with its wings spread.

The eyes of his creations even appear to be looking at you.

If you wish to see these images and more, you can visit the magazine's website featuring Daniele's work by clicking here.

While on the subject of animals, here is an accurate depiction of how one goes about training a cat:

Sometimes you can do too good of a job training a dog!

I am proud to say that I have figured out a way to train a turkey.

Ladies, looking for a way to train your man?

Then again there are those that make you wonder if they were ever trained at all!

Then again, maybe the human race had a bad trainer.

On a closing note, I just realized a way to cut down on the number of divorces every year in the country. All you need to do is to have the cell phone companies write the marriage contracts. You'll never get out of them!

The hand art is amazing. I've never seen anything like it.

The cat and dog training tips appear to be right on target.

I believe the term "man training" is an oxymoron.:)

Gidday Mike,
I was going to put a photo of Jack Palance doing the one handed push-up on the post, but wasn't able to save the photo.
Loved the cartoons of the cat and dog training tips. Methinks you could be spot on about the cat training one.
I've seen the hand art on a power slide presentation before. They are just brilliant.

Hi Mike, could it just be that the words "serena joy" are an oxymoron????

The Hand art is truly amazing, I have not seen this work before. Cats are the ones who do the training of the human in this house. Cheers Margaret

Oh my gosh, so funny. Especially the "mayo clinic" and the "you're doing it wrong".
Really good ones.

Late again, but since I'm last I get more time to enjoy it. Love the hand. Glad he washes after he's finished.
