Here at Carbon Rose Magazine, we love animals. And we’re not being ironic given that we devote most of our time to teaching you how to hunt them. Heck, if it weren’t for animals, we wouldn’t even be in business. And so we thought, in honor of them, let’s turned the tables and show animals killing us instead – with laughter! What we have for you here are all the finalists from the 2016 Wildlife Comedy Photography Awards. And just like the name implies, it’s a competition devoted to picking the funniest wildlife photography of the year. Such a sense of humor they have, that here’s just a few samples of their rules: “#2. The winner will be the picture, which, in the opinion of the judges, combines the best technical excellence with the most amusing content and caption. #6. You must have taken the picture yourself within the last 99 years. Seriously you wouldn’t believe what people try and submit these days. #16. You must think Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the greatest pieces of popular music ever written, just kidding.” So let’s all load up on some laughter before we load up our rifles, shall we?

Slip Slidin’…

Menage a Trois

Humans are the kinkiest animals no more. These Chipmunks really know how to get it on. Only question is, who’s in the middle getting more action than we could ever imagine, or want?

If that one in the back would stop dilly dallying, they’d be outta there already.

“Way too many calories, trans fats, and it’s not gluten free. What the heck, I’ll eat it anyway.”

Kermie?

Doesn’t it look like there’d be some guy with his hand up this toads back side that has a very high pitched, nasally voice?
