It's good that I have this telephoto lens. Meerkats are very difficult to get close enough to photograph.

The newest navy seals are not citizens of the U.S. We will take anyone as spotters for our snipers.

I see Kim Jong Un, do you really think you can blend in with the rats of North Korea and take him out? Grab your bothers, it's a go....

"Darnit, I can't find a single meerkat to photograph. The guide said they were so plentiful here I'd be practically tripping over them. Where are they hiding?"

New Disney family moving coming out in November... 'The adventures of Tom and Squiggy'....

It's about a Unemployed journist traveling the world... and a Pirate Meerkat looking for adventure.

Spoiler alert... 42 minutes into the film... the unemployed journalist ate the Pirate Meerkat.

"Due to Mike's carpal tunnel syndrome he had to get a service critter to focus his lens. Let's listen in as he takes a photo..."

Meercat: "Sure this is going overboard to hire a photographer, but it's the only way I can get evidence of my neighbor's dog taking a dump in my yard!"
