Esteban the Guinea Pig is here to keep this competition clean.
Welcome back to another installment of With Leather’s Friday Face-Off, amigos and comrades. It’s been a few weeks since we’ve pitted two awesome videos against each other, but we are neglecting you no more. Today we are putting you all inside the Thunderdome of cuteness, as we going back to our roots and having two spectacular animal videos force you into making the toughest decision of your week.
First up, I’m tapping into a recent Uproxx post that I threw together to help everyone have a wonderful Friday. It was a gallery of animals on swings, and I’m pretty sure it got me fast-tracked for a Pulitzer. But until I hear from that committee about my prize, someone took it one step further and made a video of dogs on swings. Yes, it’s as awesome as you would imagine.
Sometimes I think we take guys like New Orleans Hornets center Chris Kaman for granted, as he is often mocked and criticized for being such an avid hunter. But he doesn’t care about the criticism, as evidenced by his recent posting of the above image on his Twitter account. Kaman Tweeted the picture in partial jest, as the Hornets were set to play the Charlotte Bobcats, but it also raised an interesting point – don’t we need guys like Kaman in case a wild animal ever gets loose on a basketball court?
Israel’s Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball team now knows the answer to that question is a resounding yes. Recently, during one of their games, the Fightin’… um, Tell Avivers almost had a full blown riot on their hands, when a ferocious beast interrupted game play. I’ve included the video after the jump, but please cover the eyes of any small children near you.
Also, reminder, most of you aren’t supposed to be near small children.

Lindsay Lohan Is Taking This Modeling Thing Seriously - … or at least she’s settled into a nice position as “lady with big boobs who smokes and people take pictures”. There are entire fetish tubes for that. [Smoking Section]

Welcome to Friday Face-Off, our weekly celebration of the Internet’s greatest random videos, as we pit two of them against each other for our own delicious competitive urges. Feel free to send submissions to BurnsyWL@gmail.com and if your video wins you’ll get yourself one of our awesome With Leather t-shirts.
It hit me the other day as I was doing push-ups in front of some Victoria’s Secret models that I forgot to put together a Friday Face-Off last week, as I was too busy breaking the world record for most times complaining about having to get up from the couch to walk all the way to the fridge. So I apologize for that and today bring you a very special offering to make up for that.
Today’s Face-Off pits two disabled animals against each other, so when you’re voting in the comments, make sure that you think long and hard about which of these poor souls you’re comfortable casting off into exile.
At With Leather we aren’t afraid to bypass an actual sports news story in favor of videos of kittens being adorable at sports (usually all from Buzzfeed), and today is no exception — please ignore those 100 allegations of whatever and enjoy watching these baby cats fawn over a Japanese figure skater. You don’t really need more information than that, and should already be enjoying it.
This is where I’d share a story about my cat doing something similar, but the only time Jumbo notices the television is when I’m trying to switch up Batman and Catwoman in Arkham City. Maybe I should watch more figure skating. Or get more cats.
