These 16 Photos Show Just How Important (And Cute) Teamwork Really Is.

The best friends we have are always the ones who are there to give you a hand when you need it most. It could be as simple as a small encouraging message or gesture, but it can also be as literal as this hilarious and adorable photos show. 

Whether it’s animals or humans, one thing is for sure: it’s easier to get stuff done when you work together. It’s also more fun.

1.) These little troublemakers.

2.) This is actually the cutest.

3.) This is a patient friend.

4.) This pair of fridge raiders.

5.) I think I see some silent judgement in the enabler’s eyes…

6.) The tiniest wingman… even if this can’t be real.

7.) Something tells me the little guy runs the show.

8.) I hope he has good aim.

9.) Who needs sleds when you have friends?

10.) War really does bring people closer together.

11.) And people think cats and dogs don’t get along.

12.) It does look like a heavy stick.

13.) True professionals laugh at ladders.

14.) Just needs a little boost…

15.) If you want the good bamboo, you gotta work for it.

16.) That’s not where we keep our picnic baskets, buddies.

Even if the help is a little misguided, there’s nothing like knowing someone’s got your back.

Ben Jealous says ‘infighting among sophisticated Negroes’ will cause a mess

http://twitter.com/#!/BenJealous/status/289168460313931776

Oh, come on! NAACP President and CEO Ben Jealous has to be trolling us. The same day that National Journal writer Ron Fournier incurred the wrath of the Twittersphere for daring to call President Obama “aloof,” Jealous informs us of the existence of “sophisticated Negroes”? Well, far from an uproar, Jealous’s tweet inspired widespread agreement. It must be nice to be free to tweet with that implied (D) next to your name.

@benjealous You speak truth; yet it seems that’s the one thing most Negroes are good at–in fighting.

@benjealous You got that right!

You said a mouth full right there brother Ben. You ain’t lying either. People need to hear the truth! @benjealous

@benjealous Everytime. It has to stop in order for us to progress as a people.

EVERYtime and ALL day! #GotToDoBettet RT @benjealous: In fighting among sophisticated Negroes will cause a mess.

@benjealous Can you expound on that? Are you speaking about a specific situation or a universal idea?

— Garrett A. Brown (@GarrettABrown) January 10, 2013

We’re not sure, but it seems that Jealous has big plans for the future if the infighting can be set aside.

The only people who can win the Civil War this time is us–we must build a machine to pass state legislation. #NAACP

And, like always, they kicked things off with a bang:

Good Lord.

No kidding.

Basically.

Whatever would we do without you, Vox?
