Occasionally, we write a post that's so profound and beautiful that it's a shame to see it get buried by stories that follow, disappearing into the Internet netherworld and forgotten forever.

Such was the case for our groundbreaking piece on masturbating animals. It was up one day and then -- POOF! -- the wanking mammals were all but a distant memory.

But thanks the magic of the Internet and our employees' newly appointed free time, contributing editor Laura Leu has turned the post into a blog of its own.

So, swing on by The Self-Petting Zoo! But please don't feed the animals; they're masturbating.
