Patton Oswalt battles his demons (and zombies) — You know Patton Oswalt. As I prepared to talk to the comedian about his terrific, Gen X-era cultural memoir " Zombie, Spaceship, Wasteland," nearly everyone I mentioned him to had an immediate, very specific response. They were, in order: "I loved 'Big Fan.' " "I wish 'Comedians of Comedy' would come back."

The Man Who Loves To Hate — The Rev. Fred Phelps stands out from a block away. Sixty-nine years old, Phelps is tall and reedy; his white hair billows out from under a cowboy hat. Like a latter-day Moses, he holds in each hand bright yellow-and-orange posters: "Baptist 666 Fags" and "Matt in Hell."

Undercover Footage Captures White Dolphin "Angel" Alive - But Bullied — The rumor that took hold of the enviro and animal welfare world this weekend claimed that the albino dolphin - dubbed "Angel" by activists after it was captured in the just-ended dolphin hunt in Taiji, Japan - had died. The Taiji Whale Museum, an aquarium that's held Angel in the two months since he...

As "The Simpsons" Creator Cheats Death, He Travels The Globe Saving Animals — Sam Simon is typically identified as "co-creator of 'The Simpsons,'" which is true, and people often like to go further, proclaiming him the real heart of the series, even though he left it long ago, in 1993. He's also had a startlingly long career in entertainment before that -- as a wunderkid show...

Are You Always First To Find That Great Animal Video Or Photo? We May Have A Job For You — The Dodo is looking for an editor with a knack for finding the best animal, photos, videos, Vines, memes, GIFs, cultural references and visual trends -- and finding them before anyone else. If this is your passion -- and you're a sharp writer with a light touch -- The Dodo has the job for you.

Celebrate Your Mutt -- Give It A Unique Breed! — The Westminster Kennel Club -- for the first time in its 138-year-old history - gave mutts a cameo in its annual Dog Show. But as it now turns its attention to the pure breeds, we want to keep mutts on the center stage. So we're taking inspiration from this brilliant shelter campaign in Costa Rica, ...

Your Best #SnowDogs — Yesterday, we explored just why dogs love playing in the snow so much -- and asked you to share pictures or videos of your favorite snow dogs. Today, we want to share some of our favorites with you.Keep sending us your #SnowDog pictures, videos or Vines of dogs enjoying the snow and we'll add to the...

About The Dodo — We're witnessing a profound shift in the way people regard animals. They matter more to us now. We think of them less as objects at our disposal, as science increasingly reveals them to be intelligent, emotional, social beings that are not as different from us as we used to think they were.

Live-Streaming A Nightmare: Japan's Dolphin Hunt — It's been four years since the Oscar-winnng "The Cove" exposed the annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan, to an international audience and left many of us, lulled by a belief that attention and awards bring change, to assume that cinematic thunder crack would have ended the tragic spectacle.
