A young sloth wants to learn how to fly. That seems funny to the other sloths, who don’t want to of anything, as sloths do. It’s kind of funny to us, too, because it’s hard to imagine a sloth ever flapping his arms that fast. But this is a cartoon, by John McGowan, so anything is possible. In fact, it was his graduate thesis project.

This reminds me somewhat of another graduate thesis project in animation about a flightless bird who dreams of flying, but trust me, this one is not nearly as heart-wrenching. (via Daily of the Day)

Sloths are fast and capable swimmers. True fact.

I created an animation as a college senior. It obviously wasn't nearly as good as this!
