My good friend, Beckie, of Beckies Mental Mess, is the originator of this particular challenge, so here is her post and how she described the challenge:

“POP!” Pop of Positivity Share #6 Theme: Funny Scenes From a Movie of Animals or Humans Acting Like Animals

 

“What is “Pop!” – Pop of Positivity?”

“Pop of Positivity”   It’s based on one simple thing.  “Life doesn’t have to suck all the time.”  Let’s face it… There’s a Helluva lot of negativity in the real world, and it’s pretty hard to escape it.  I thought of this as a means to brighten up everyone’s day.  Taking time away from thinking about the negative and switch gears and think of the positive.  Perhaps,  we can all share some smiles along the way too.

Guidelines

Each Thursday, I’ll pick a Theme (Naturally, of something positive).

I will, therefore, Tag Two Bloggers to continue the themed positive message along.

You, the recipient of the tag can select anyway fit on how you want to share this positivity.  (Example: A Quote, Affirmation, Music Video, Memes, Pictures, etc… As long it sticks to the Theme).

You will create a Pingback to the original post, as well as notifying your tagged blogger that you have selected them.

 

Topic or Theme: Funny Movie Scenes of Animals or People Acting Like Animals 

 

So, here we go:

  1. Ylvis – The Fox (what does the fox say?)

 

2) Here is a scene from one of my favourite films as a child, Willow, where the evil queen Bathmorda (played by the wonderful Jean Marsh) turns the enemy forces into pigs. Gosh, I wish I had that power! Apparently, Val Kilmer was already a pig before the transformation…

 

3) Here are some animated animals, Ostriches dancing to the Dance of the Hours, courtesy of Disney’s Fantasia.

 

I hope you enjoyed that.

 

If you want to have a go, please consider yourself nominated. 🙂

Animal Thoughts, A poem for the Kreative Kue Picture Challenge

Animal Thoughts

I often wonder wistfully,

As I’m sure do you,

What do animals think about?

What in their minds, pass through?

They often stand and stare at us,

poor humans walking by,

We laugh and point and make a fuss,

They probably wonder why.

I imagine Impish Impala think

About the prank they’ll play,

On the next group of travellers

That journey past their way.

And what of the noble Gnu?

What do they consider while,

the tourists gather around them,

What makes them look and smile?

I suppose they think we’re foolish,

Standing still on our two feet,

Just to get a glimpse of them,

We brave the savannah heat.

It’s probably us and our silly ways

That makes hyena laugh,

You won’t catch them

Waiting hourly

Just to take a photograph.

And these three splendid antelope,

Of the Sable kind,

What is going through their heads?

What thoughts tick through their mind?

They look rather stern and grandly bold.

Their glance appears quite flat,

I expect that what they’re thinking is,

“Oi! What are you lot Gawping at?”
