We’ve all been there – had a terrible itch that needed immediate attention. Yet while humans and apes are blessed with deft fingers that are useful for reaching and scratching, imagine having four legs (needed for standing up on) and just paws, hooves or teeth to help out on the scratching front. As you might imagine, hilarity ensues when certain animals get an itch they’ve got to scratch but can’t quite reach, and so become involuntary contortionists. Case in point: can you look at this cow without laughing? Fourteen other funny animal pictures like this one follow.
