Super furry celebrity animals: Do you ever feel like (you are) a hamster on a piano eating popcorn? If you do, you're lucky. If you don't, you're probably human.
Chicken Corner received from a friend who asked not to be named:
There is a hamster at Chango, eating popcorn.
Did he lose his job?
But my friend must have turned his/her Blackberry off, because they didn't get back to me. Maybe he/she was being ticketed for texting in traffic. I didn't have time to drive down to the coffeehouse, so I called, and the guy who answered was so friendly. He said the hamster had been at the table closest to the milk thermoses etc. for about 3.5 hours but that he had just been carried into a 2005ish Jaguar that looked like a Taurus that pulled up in front. He added that the little white hamster peed on a copy of the LA Weekly's greatest hits but that the damage was so slight the issue could be saved.
"Call me if he comes back, will ya?"
"Sure thing," he said, "I'll do that. I'll do that."
Huffington Post helped make the critter the hipster celebrity hamster he is today.
