Australian Animal Favorites 4

Sender-inner Michelle describes this image as "the cutest photo of a lamb in sweater I’ve ever seen." Um, I’LL SAY! Apparently, this little lambykins lives on her in-law’s farm in Australia. Absolutely, fully, and totally redonk. Looks like he’s going out to get the newspaper.

Omg_2

Clean hooves alert!  >    >      >> (<–hooves)

  5. TwinklyTerrapin says:

    He’s kinda like an ovis-y Mr. Rodgers…

  6. A sheep in sheep’s clothing!

  7. Lookit those pink ears!

    With the sun shining through!!!

    *wants to snuggle*

  8. Is it just me or does lambykins look like he’s smiling?

  9. Is this a wool sweater?

    Lamb: “Why am I getting this feeling of…deja vu? Yeah, that’s what I mint – MEANT, MEANT – to say!”

  10. Very, very cute pic. He’s so clean that he must have just had a bath – the sweater is to keep the after-bath chills away. And, ummmm, am I the only one wondering what the sweater is made from? ;-)

  11. Jinx, Aubrey!

  12. Oh. My. Goodness.

    A clean pink fuzzy glowing lambie in a grandpa sweater? *thunk* That’s it, folks, I think I’ve died.

  13. Can’t…take…the cuteness.

  14. Wow, they really are clean.

  15. That… Is the sweetest… Lamb… I’ve… *pant pant* ever…

    I just got an e-mail from my husband that said, “there’s a picture of a lamb in a sweater on Cute Overload.” Of course, I had to drop everything and come look. Eeeeee! Not only are those hoovlets clean–they feel like little erasers (it’s true.) And note the oh-so-chic Blunstones (or are they RM Williams?)lined up on the porch. The whole thing looks like a fall fashion photo shoot for Australian Vogue. Reeee-donk!

  17. Aaaaaawwwwww :)
    What a sweetsweet lambikins.
    And, he does sorta look like Mr. Rogers. Heeeeee.

  18. It’s adorable!! (or would that be “anerable”? ;) )

  19. mein gott, it’s Sean! From Wallace & Gromit’s “A Close Shave”.

    lookie-see: http://home.comcast.net/~bogiebogie/blogfiles/WGSN.jpg

  20. I love the knobbly knees and the fuzzly ears with the light shining through!

    LOL reminds me…I met a bunch of Kiwis in Cairns & the one guy was like “I’m SO SICK of sheep jokes!!!” (I think it was an Aussie giving him a hard time, haha)

  21. brownamazon says:

    And another thing:
    What *are* those creatures on the sweater? Mice? Wolves? Dancing kangaroos? It’s the icing on the cake, really.

  22. RidBaxter — you took the words right out of my fingers.
    No need to be sheepish.

  23. fuzzy fuzzy ears.
    i want him! i will even make him sweaters for each day of the week :]

  24. Blunnies in the background! Nothing screams “Australia” more than a pair of Blundstone boots

  25. That’s ridiculously cute. A SWEATER! And it’s a LAMB!

  26. At first I thought they were minkies on teh sweater, but now I think they are meeces. Either way,
    CUTE!

  27. Is that lamby wearing a MICKEY MOUSE sweater??? OMG! He needs a snorgle!

  28. Platypuuuus!
    I demand platypus!
    well… not really demand… just… sort of suggest… please?

  29. Awww.. how cute. Think about this lil darling next time you eat a gyro. Seriously, “Awww its so cute I could just DIE but as soon as its dead it’ll taste mighty fine!” Calves, pigs, ducks, chickens… they all feature prominently here and you all go to bits over them but YOU KILL THEM AND EAT THEM. Pure hypocrisy.

  30. ATTENTION WORD NERDS.
    THERE ARE TWO NEW ADDITIONS AND ONE NIFTY UPDATE NOW IN THE GLOSSARY.
    W00T, I SAY.

  31. Otter – a platypus plea be respected!

  32. oh goodness! it’s shaun the sheep from wallace and gromit’s “a close shave!” so cute!

  33. *offers yes a carrot stick sans veggie dip*

    I’ve got a banana here too, if you’re still hungry.

  34. ATTENTION AGAIN WORD NERDS.
    MAKE THAT *THREE* NEW GLOSSARY ADDITIONS.
    W00T AND YAY.

  35. I thought the sheep in Wallace & Gromit was actually called Shorn? Mmm…can somebody with more internet time than me look that one up?

  36. Wow, Mariser gets her own entry in the CO glossary! nice one! (I have no idea how long that one has been there, I never looked at the whole list before)

  37. OMG! So cute!! Fuzzy ears and that sweet lil face. G’day mate!

  38. Ceebs — that was a little winking retribution, right there. It’s not new, tho.

  39. Tink — it was Shawn (Sean), probably *because* it sounds like “shorn”.

  40. bunnajenny says:

    OMG Knobbly Knees!

  41. oh, ok, tanks teho.

  42. ceebs,

    yeppers, I is famous!
    or alternatively, is what happens when you drive he-whose-name-cannot-be-spoken-owner-of-the-glossary -and-and-landlord-of-the-COHD
    crazy…
    ;)

  43. Attention Cute-mart Shoppers:

    For the next 30 minutes there will be a blue-light special on all of our lamby-kins sweaters for snorgling.

    Buy one, get one snorgle for free.

    Have a cute day and thank you for shopping at Cute-mart.

  44. Lambs in sweaters! I haven’t seen such a thing since I was young and in 4-H. It helps keep their coats just so after you shear ‘em.

  45. Brownamazon, I had the same feeling about that “fall catalogue” look a like, it’s the sweater and the boots. And the liiight is… woaaaa. Where is this place?

  46. A platypus would surely make for original snorgles!

  47. yes, I’m happy to find animals adoreable when I’m not eating or wearing them. :) What did those innocent plants ever do to you?! Some day, a device will be made so you can hear flowers scream every time they’re plucked.

  48. That is sooo disgustingly cute, I’m not even sure what to do. They look like “Barrel of Monkeys” monkeys on the sweater! (even though they aren’t, I realize this)

  49. T.,

    not that I’m complaining (I wouldn’t dare), but…
    …mebbe
    …perhaps
    consider adding this thread, http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/08/sleepin_on_big_.html
    to the “Sound of Music, The” entry in teh COG?
    IIRC, there were many fav’rite things, Alpine yodeling, and staircase performances on that thread too…

    /hides

  50. Look how small he is against the shoes behind him! Little sheepy sheep!

  51. The sweater is knitted from human back-hair… ;-)

    Seriously though, that lambikins is absolutely a-friggin’-dorable!

    –TwoDragons

  52. His legs are sooooo elegant! His hooves! Oh man.

  53. LOL Two Dragons! good thing I wasn’t consuming a beverage at the time or I would have snarfed it right out my shnozz!

  54. LOL! SO cute.

  55. Wrap that CUTIE up, and send him over to me!! LOL:)

  56. Woot! Me loves teh glossary!

    Lol, Aelice, good point! I even hate to pull up weeds and kill them, but dang it, it has to be done!

  63. we’ve had discussions about ahnimehls that meet you in heaven… This must be God’s front porch..that lil’ lamb is too perfect to be of this earth..he’s all “Hello there! C’mon in we’ve got wings and stuff for you!”

  64. ~Happy Word Nerd~
    My eyes popped a bit on first seeing Theo’s post re: COG freshitudeness. You see, I recently adopted “word nerd” as my (un)official title at ye olde workplace, and I had a panicky moment.
    (i.e. OMG the MAN is now ~~speaking to me~~ through CO comments, help!)
    Glad it wasn’t some kind lexicographical work emergency, just more of my favorite Teh Qte!!

    did I mention that I have yet to suppress the giggles when looking at this lambkin?

  71. oh my garsh, chet’s momma, that’s toooo funny! :)
    (yerp!)

  72. Yeah, it’s the “Cliffy” voice! Like the sandwich-stealing basset hound. Okey dokes, then.

  73. Do you think his mommy made him that sweater? =)

  74. Thank you thank you thank you for making me laugh long and loud. Phew!

  75. punk penguin says:

    what?! the Tasmanian Devil wasn’t cute enough to rate on this site? sigh.

  76. *In best tough cop voice*

    Did ewe make that sweater?

    Did ewe?

    C’mon! If ewe didn’t do it, who the H@#$ did?

    *Cowers and looks around for master PUN-isher, Aubrey*

    (’cause, Dude, I know I’m so not worthy. Aubrey is my hero!)

  77. Betty – If that were true, and this little guy was there to greet me, I’d leave tonight!!!

    Chet’s Momma – I love the imagery!!!

    AND just for the record, I have a new word for my week… Woot!!!! I’ll be saying that for the rest of the week now….

    woot woot woot woot woot woot….

  78. I love EWE! Sooo prosh.

    (did no one post this pun yet rilly??)

  79. Ewe might scroll upward a couple of comments to RPennefe, Suzanne…

  80. Theo: I’m just waiting for “Puddle of Squee” to join the august ranks of the Glossary. I’m tryin’ though! ;-)

    –TwoDragons

  81. BTW–am I the only one that hears “Ode To Joy” in their head when they look at your “Yay!” page…? *LOL*

    –TwoYAY!Dragons

  82. D2D says – BTW–am I the only one that hears “Ode To Joy” in their head when they look at your “Yay!” page…? *LOL*

    No you most assuredly are not the only one!!!!! I too hear it. *grin*

  83. I’m a knitter…lamb + sweater w/ teeny cute hooves… I’ve dyed!

  84. GWA!

    It’s so cute.

    And yet, I have the most terrible craving for lamb in red wine sauce… I’m a bad person.

    (slaps face) “Bad llama!”

  85. To rpennefe:

    -in best tough cop voice-

    “Now I can be relied on to keep a secret…I won’t tell your parents, but I’ve heard a certain word coming from your direction…so: have you been ewe-sing?”

  86. OMG! Has anyone else noticed that the little ivy-eater’s still got his umbilical stump?! It’s hanging out the bottom of his sweater!

    Awwwwww, he’s probably still all woobly on his knobbly little legs, even! Hell, forget me being melted, I’ve done sublimated!

    ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sublimation_(physics) )

    –TwoDragons

  87. Now the little fella needs pants. Or maybe socks.

  88. the sweater has mo-effing monkey prints on it

  89. As if lambs aren’t cute enough, this one has to be wearing a sweater. I don’t think I can stand it.

  90. Do sheep have eyes like goats? ‘Cause I think this one has the horizontal pupils.

  91. Ok, scrolled up to see, Yes! He does have his umbilical stump AND horizontal pupils!

    (of course, many boring teachers have horizontal pupils) narnar.

  92. ok….the term “umbilical stump” is not cute…it’s creeping me out! :-$
    :-P
    {shudders}

  93. I don’t think they have any cute nicknames for it, Ceebs…sowwy! @.@

    He’s probably only a day or two old. Maybe he has the sweater on to keep his little newborn body warm!

    –TwoDragons

  94. Lol. How about bellybutton string?

  95. Maybe it’s a lambilicus…? ;-)

    –TwoDragons

  96. stop STOP *S*T*O*O*O*O*P*!*!*!*

    Don’t make me break out the sporks.

  97. It behooves me to post on how cute this creature is. I wanna lamb!

  98. Arvay — word to the wiseass: Go here.
    http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/09/vacation_prepar.html#comment-22050185
    Camera puns! Teh w00t.

  99. Cutest picture of a lamb in a sweater would imply that there are a LOT of pictures of lambs in sweaters out there, no?? :) VERY cute…

  100. It’s Shaun!

  101. My mum’s dog has that sweater! But he’s too fat for it.

  102. Hey, I just remembered this…
    http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/06/stop_the_insani.html

    …not sure why lambiekins didn’t remind me of this sooner.

  103. Ooh ooh where’s the tree sweater??! Hang on…

  104. I would name him Lambert.

    for a baby in an old man’s sweater.

  105. Ooohhh!!! I want to BE right there, on that porch, looking at the sun shining through lambykins ear and marveling at the prosh gangly legs… I am going to look at this picture over and over and over!!! OMG!!!

  106. His momma made that cute sweater….quite litterally!

  107. hehe — lamb’s wool sweater!

  108. for anyone who’s interested, i’m the photographer and the lamb’s name is Hannibal.

    those of you who asked for him to be packaged up and sent over by express might be interested to know that he now looks a lot like this :

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v190/jamesg/kel%20and%20sim/discussion.jpg

    (my wife – the original poster – is on the left)
