Ah, the animal kingdom is filled with such wonder.

Take this wombat, for instance. In this clip from the BBC Two's Natural World, he merrily munches on a piece of sweet corn while ripping a fart for the ages. He's immune from the laws of etiquette and manners. He doesn't care about what fork to use at the dinner table. He's got its mind on one thing and one thing only -- making sure his body feels good. The food coming in tastes delicious and its expelled in gaseous form for the whole world to hear. Embarrassment is clearly not an emotion with which he can identify.

"He's eating it like a beaver chewing through wood" is how it's described, but let's get real here. The next time a beaver is chewing through wood it should be described as "he's eating it like a wombat chewing through sweet corn."
