We interupt your regularly scheduled costumed Halloween pet for this sugar glider

I know, I know, you’ve now seen one hundred dogs in front-paw costumes and you need a break. DID SOMEONE SAY SHOO-GARE GLI-DARE?!


OK, OK , I admit it. I said "Shoo-gare gli-dare."
And so did Sender-inner Agnostic Anarch M.



  1. BCteagirl says:

    So cute! early post! heh

  2. Wow, I’m not first, am I?

    I think this is synchronicity, because I was just thinking about sugar gliders this morning.

    Happy Halloween!

  3. BCteagirl says:

    Oooo…. First post… and my first one! This Halloween rocks! (going to restaurant called the waddling duck tonight, even the name sounds cute!).

  4. I don’t know what is funnier- the pic (sugar gliders ‘n racks) or the caption.

    I actually said it out loud.

    “Shoo-gare gli-dare”

  5. Super Cute!!!!!! so BEF what a cutie!!! hey, I wanted to be the firt one to post, eff this slow thing!!!! Any way What’s the name of that cutie pie???;)

  6. BCteagirl says:

    Think I *just barely* scooped you on it Frostine. Happy Halloween! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  7. NebraskaErin says:

  8. Congrats BCteagirl, you beated me!!!! 😦

  15. Squee! It’s so cute! I love sugar gliders, but they’re nocturnal and would keep me up all night with their cuteness.

  16. BCteagirl says:

    Hands pre-wrapped halloween chocolate bars to Yvonne and Frostine.. Unless we are giving away pudding cups this year? What did the committee say?

  17. BCteagirl says:

    Wups..Ivonne… sorry!

  18. A thinker says:

    Teho? Teho? Where are ya when we need a few good FP slaps…

    Mighty key-oot sugar glider and (sort of) rack…

  19. Oh noes! Sugar gliders = CRUELTY! Don’t you people remember ANYTHING??


    And one more for the record: These little blurbs underneath the photo? The ones that anybody can write & submit? They’re called “Comments”. The thing with the photo, which Meg composed, is a “Post”.

    Neither you nor I nor anyone but Meg will EVER have “First Post”. Move on!

    (Thinker — CO has been REEEEALLY slow for me, since yesterday.)

  20. Aww, his little hand!! So teeny and it works just fine!

  21. Teeny opposable thumbs! 🙂
    He’s a cutie!

  22. teho, you haven’t been messing with the CO time-machine again have you?! You KNOW what that did last Halloween!! Sheesh.

  23. Oh no Oh dear. I want one of these too. A sugar glider ya say. hmmmmmmmm

  24. Oh, the velvety fur! The tiny perfectly delineated fingers! The delicate pink noozle! Eeeek!

  25. “Neither you nor I nor anyone but Meg will EVER have “First Post”.”

    Speaking of The First Post, did we totally forget to celebrate the first anniversary of the first CO post back on Sept. 25? There should have been a disapproving bun with a candle and a pudding party at least.

  26. My hats off (so to speak) to anybody who’d seriously have a sugar glider as a pet. I looked at some pages on the care of sugar gliders, and it’s a lot of work! They sure are cute, though. This page has sound clips: http://www.skinhorse.net/gliders/sounds.html

  27. Chastity Kennedy says:

    I have only one word: AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!

  28. A thinker says:

    Teho, CO has been running reeeeaaallly slowly for me, too, the past few days 😦

  29. “First post”
    “You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.”
    (Noticing Theo’s name in Cuteoverload name so maybe Theo has trumped us all? Which came first, the teo or the Theo? That is the question.)

  30. CO IS so slow. Thought it was me. EEEEEEEENNNNNNNHHHHHHHH. To the pain.

  31. Wheee, beady-eyed goodiness!

  32. Sweetum pie! Pink hands and nose, OMG!

  33. And speaking of time machines… maybe that’s why the comments have been out of sync. I noticed that one of my responses to someone else’s comment on Sunday got posted before hers. Hmmmm…

  34. have you noticed the teeny tiny left hand firmly planted on zee rack?
    “mine! mine I tells ya!
    I shall never give up
    zee rack!”

  35. Do shugies have wet nosies? He has such a cute tineh pink nose, wanna kiss it. I couldn’t bear going to work and leaving him at home alone, I would sneak him with me in my pocket!

  36. Teho, if we mere mortals can’t Post and can only Comment, why does this little button under my Comments composing window say Post??

  37. you guys r silly says:

    I see tiny tummy wrinkles!!!

  38. Wow, when this little guy really starts a-gliding, it must be a real sugar rush!

  39. OMG I wanna see him glide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Amazing little guy!!

  40. Ebee — because on the button, it’s a verb. You *can* post a comment.

  41. Their noses aren’t wet. I know because my two little guys nuzzled by ear for the first time recently! Heeeee!

    I’ll work on getting a good picture, preferably with my rack. (Here are crappy pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/specklet/sets/72157594241022389/ )

  42. Omg!!!
    Itsa… Sugar glider!!!
    ::dies happily::

  43. “Hey Mr. ‘post’ man, hey, hey, hey, Mr. Postman, wait a minute, wait a minute. Mr. Po-wo-wo-wo-ost man.”

  44. ‘Kay Specklet, fess up. Do you take your gliders to work in your rack? I miss working with that crazy lady and her squealing boobs.

  45. Redzilla, the boys and I aren’t fully bonded yet, but when we are I really really want to take them with me to work. When at home I frequently tuck their sleeping pouch inside my overall bib, and a friend of mine who stopped by one day was alarmed when he realized my rack was larger than usual and making very strange noises…

  46. “and i will love him and pet him…”

    What a cutie! I love the dark streak on it’s head. I wanna kiss it!

    ::snuggles sugar glider in bosom::

  47. A thinker says:

    Ah, the crucial distinction between verbs and nouns. Maybe we should have a CO grammar tutorial as well as a Glossary…

  48. Ver’ cute.

    Off-topic: please…won’t you leave us with just one more ‘tock picture on this last day of Tocktober? One teeny tiny itty bitty ‘tock?

  49. Hey, thanks BCteagirl, hope to see you around here again, happy halloween, don’t worry about the Y or the I ;)and I agree with Theo, this right here are COMMENTS!!!! 🙂

  50. “What Jackie commented/posted.”
    Tick-tock, tick-tock, time is running out for one last ‘tock for Tocktober.

  51. *scribbles notes*
    Ok, we can’t post a post, but we can post a comment. Can we comment a post? Or only comment a comment?

  52. Lauri,
    We can comment ON a post. Of such things we have a host.

    Oh, and tonight beware of ghosts.

  53. I think our comments that we post are comments on the post but not posts on the post nor posts on the comments.

    Maybe we need to consult Emily Post on this.

  54. Y’all are the most.
    And I’m, uh… roast ghost on toast. Though I don’t mean to boast.

  55. Boy, that little guy would hate me. I’d keep trying to hold his little hands. And I’d keep planting smacky kisses on his belly.

    Is he a baby?

  56. Ah, T. I’d so like to visit you. But I live on the coast.

  57. A thinker says:

    Of witty commenters there are a host.

    [tries in vain to think of another -ost word]

  58. A thinker says:

    Not to boast, but this post contains a host of the most roast ghosts on toast who live on the coast.

  59. Almost.

  60. Foast!
    Cornbleentwiddleboot von Drost!

  61. Stick with the lavender monkeys, Teho.

  62. A thinker says:

    [Slaps head] Almost! Of course.

    Not to boast, but this post contains a host of almost the most roast ghosts on toast who live on the coast.

  63. Woe-ist me!

  64. O Byootiful Foer Spacious Skys
    For Ambur Wayvs Of Grayn
    Fur Purple Monkey Majestees
    Abuv Teh Fruity Plane…

    I have a headache.

  65. (strides into the ER room) There’s an emergency at the shoo-gare gli-dare post! Give me some chocolate puddin, a side of flan and a brulee for backup, STAT!

  66. did anyone else notice the girls ring? its so pretty…

  67. OMG he’s so adorable, my grandma wanted one of those little guys so bad!
    Side Note: Theo I just love you and your FP Noob slappyness!

  68. A thinker says:

    LOL! Snortchuckle.

  69. Sidenotepost, is this glasnost?

  70. Gad, I am laughing so loud at you guys. And, Mary, Emily Post? Hahahaah! And Theo sing-ging da nashunal anthum.

    I know, I know, but it SHOULD be the nashunal anthum. Wid de purple monkey majesties rampant on a field of weenies!

    Remember Post Toasties???

  71. And in other marsupial-related news:

    Australians unveil test tube baby koalas

    Test…tube…baby…koalas, people!

  72. Peg of Tilling says:

    I think there should be a pastry called a sugar glider, something like a very light sugar cookie…and then you could have a pet sugar glider named Madeline.

  73. But if you have a sugar glider named Madeline in your rack, don’t you have to beware the chocolate chips… or do you let the chips fall where they may?

  74. Must Have More Costumed Doggies!! Need Dogs in Costumes!!!

  75. I heard sugar gliders in my garden last night. It’s breeding time, so they’ve been squeaking. We always hear them here, but virtually never see them. They’re good at hiding. Just as well too – we have big owls here who like glider-sized snacks.

  76. Specklet, I recommend you submit this one to CO, because it’s just killed me:


  77. Really enjoyed the post ghost toast nonsense….ROFL

  78. kcat:

    Once nonsense begins, it’s hard to stop – one riposte deserves another.

  79. Me thinks Aubrey swallowed a Thesaurus.

  80. “Really enjoyed the post ghost toast nonsense”

    I, on the other hand, nearly overdost.

  81. Snortheeeee, Michelle!!! 😉

    *Hits “Post”*

  82. Aww, it’s cute!

    A girl in one of my classes just got a baby flying squirrel. He’s about 6 inches long including his tail and VERY cute. He was snuffling my fingers today! SQUEE!!!

  83. More like a thesaurus REX, Pyrit.

  84. Oh, and here’s a nifty cheat, peeps…

  85. I’m just waiting for someone to use “riposte.” Hum de dum. La la la. You are all toast!

  86. Peg of Tilling says:

    MamaDawn, you have to brush the chips into your beer so you get chip n’ ale. Or brush them off at the post office for chip n’ mail. Or at the aquarium for chip n’ whale…yeah, yeah, try the veal, tip your waitress.

  87. And now, in the cold light of morning, I see that Aubrey did indeed use “riposte.” Ah well.

  88. Theo!
    (slapping Theo too hard on the back)
    Or a Brontothesaurus! Har, hardy, har!!!
    (as Theo gets up saying “I thought might say that.”)
    Har, har, har! Ahem, I wonder if REX meant something else? Sorry mate.

  89. Makes me miss my sugar gliders. *sigh* So cute!

  90. i got a feeling /everyone/ said “shoo-gare gli-dare”… personally, i spent over 30 seconds trying to get the inflection (‘eenflecsheeow’ to you cher fans) just right before i realized we were making fun of it… i’m going to go to work now…

  91. oof.

  92. (Looks up from reading. Sees T. and pyrit giggling)

    “What? Sorry – wasn’t listening. I was all raptor-ed up, consulting this Brontothesaurus Text.”

  93. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    You’re not the boss of me…First post,first post,first post,first post,first post…To infinity and beyond!!!!!!!!! I twirl bungee cords on a fork like giant stretchy pasta!!!!! Bleen! Bleen! Oatmeal gum.

    Wups, maybe somebody *is* the boss of me after all…

  94. NDRO — you were saying…?

  95. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    You can be a real big headed hot air filled jerk some times!!!!
    What you just did is illegal…

  96. Eeeeeasy, there. Just making a point. You were *supposed* to laugh.

    (Real comment was “You’re not the boss of me…First post,first post,first post,first post,first post…To infinity and beyond!!!!!!!!!”)

  97. Netherland Dwarf rabbit, owner!!♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ says:

    Still not laughing at that…
    But as for your comback reply to my prior POST fed upidneness you replied well…Thanks for that.

  98. Theo – Hogwart’s called. They say you are misusing your magic.
    Netherland Dwarf Rabbit Owner – Star Command called. Buzz wants his catchphrase back.

    I’m just the messenger, don’t shoot me.

  99. ‘Scuse me, lemme just shake out this umbrella…
    [eldritch swirling sparks]

  100. I LOOOOOOVE Sugies.

    More, more!
    Also, does this not fit into the Adorable Animals ‘n’ Racks category?

    What this pic doesn’t capture is how bendy and *soft* sugies are… squee.

  101. lilliane moffat says:

    how did u get that cute animal i want one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  102. Luna Hoshino says:

    Yay sugar gliders! There really need to be more suggies on CO; they’re the definition of adorable. My boy Kadabra approves of this picture.
