The Best Laid Plans of Rhino and Man

…often go awry.

I got these rhinoceros-shaped cookie cutters to make delicious, glorious rhino sugar cookies for a darling person in my life who, incidentally, is very rhinoceros-like in many ways. Note that these are not rhino-flavored; they merely resemble rhinos. Important distinction. No rhinoceroses were hurt in the making of this blog entry.

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Rhinos with a water-retention imbalance of some sort. Sorry, little buddies! These are slightly slow rhinos. They’re my special little guys.

Seriously, why do they look unintelligent??? How—why—eh—ah—*frustrated sigh*
