Cute Overload :D
‘Cause they’re READY!
[ding! Microwave sound]
Two bites should do it.
Rawk ‘n’ Roll, Kathleen M.
Eeeee they DO look very chompable!
Haha what a soft looking little guy *huggles*
ooh, a bebeh polar bear! i shall kronsche ever so gently on those ear curls, and then kiss his right between his eyes and then snuggle up for a nice long nap. ahhhh.
Awww, and he’s toeing in with his front leg.
Cute little pigeon-toed bear.
Two Bites?! I’d nibble on those prosh little earses all night!
Can I keep him?
It looks about to fall over…. May I snuggle it? Please?
It’s the Coca Cola bear! He’s just getting ready to dance with penguins to the Beach Boys.
I want it, I want it, I want it, mommy, get it for me, mommy, mommy, mommy, I want it!
…What’s that you say? It’s a violent killing machine?
Looks cuddly, though.
That’s Knut from Berlin Zoo!!!
Our whole city is nuts about him at the moment.
For those who understand a little German (or just wanna watch the vids ;o) ):
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh!
Must. Snorg. The. Polar. Bearlet!
P.S. On our second date ever, my husband took me to the San Diego Zoo and he bought me a cute polar bear stuffy.
I loooooff polar bears. And my husband.
From the appetizears to the antipastoes, it’s a banqute for the peeps.
I note that this is a rare polar bear/haggis cross. The zoo will have to set up a suitable hill-like environment for its asymmetric leg length.
Aubry, you always just chew up words, and spit them out, in the most deleartful way!
GAndalf – Gray? White? – it’s just a product of constant r-earsearch. And even then I canapelease everyone.
oh my gawd this cute bear just needs to stop!!
Gandalf the Gray, I think.
Gandalf the White would never, ever chomp on baby polar bear ears…..
How precious! Poor baby’s still trying to figure out that standing on straight trick.
It’s not only Berlin, the whole of Germany is totally in love with Knut (or “Cute Knut”), you can’t escape him on the newschannels or regular news. Not that I’d want to
Y’know, I think Gandalf would’ve had to achieved “the White” level, before he could even think about getting AWAY with the nibbling of baby polar bear ears. There’d be Mama Bear to think of.
i want to deeep heeem in my yogurt and gently neeble on heem. is that wrong?
Here’s the original series of five: http://www.spiegel.de/fotostrecke/0,5538,PB64-SUQ9MTk4MTYmbnI9MQ_3_3,00.html
Fuzzy Wuzzy wuz a bear,
But not as cute as this one here,
And if I felt a little bolder,
I’d snorgle up his snuggly shoulder.
(All right, so I’ll never be another Emily Dickinson. Still, I lurve that face!)
earsies..go right ahead and nibble on thems..I want the feets! Those big meaty feeties!
Thanks Kathleen! I tried to submit this one, too, but i’ve figured out that yahoo sends dead links for news photos so I doubt meg could open them.
I love his big ass paws!!
He’s not leaning, he’s getting ready to run! You would too, with so many people after your ears.
Happy Birthday, Knut! Stay cool, dewd.
ps check out Knut snorgling his Papi:
OH MY GOD. He is just what I need to intimidate The Man.
“You want those filings 10 minutes ago?”
*holds out Knut the Cute*
“Fall to the powers of Knut Corporate Flunkie! Or I’ll sic him on ya’ when he’s all big!”
Seriously though…I do want to spend my morning snorgling him. *sigh*
Oh wait…is he doing the Time Warp? “It’s just a jump to the left…and then a step to the riiiiight!”
MMMM, do ya think a leetle chocolate sauce would be over the top? Too moishe sweeeet, maybe? Kinda like SweetOverload?
Yitzysmommie—–Sounds yummy to me. Maybe some nuts and a cherry on top.*thlurp!*
(the earsies + the back leg have physically left me unable to say anything else. my apologies.)
Is he as soft and snorgliciousiousiousiousiousious as he looks?
Yep, and as sharp and unholy strong, too. Just about perfect.
I think Knut can’t walk straight because he’s been looking at the honk-shu pups too mu-wuh-huch, woah.
Yeah, I, too have been a bit vertigo-ed by the HonkShu pups. I feel as if I am aboard ship. Ahoy, pyrit!!!
This bear dewd is absolutely Gorgeous!!!! Unearably beautiful!!!
And this is what the Bush Administration is refusing to protect! Global warming will kill them all along with the seals and penguins! Protect our precious environment people!!!
Lauri – “Unearably” is right, cause the Peeps all nibbled his ears off.
Eargonomic, eth-ear-eal! I want him in my home! ;l
Somebody hasn’t had their v8!
No I will not make vodka jokes since Knut is an Ursa Minor.
Well done, pyrit!
I bet his ears taste like marshmallows dipped in powdered sugar! NUMMY!
I want to hold him like a beebee in my arms and rock him until he waps me softly on my cheek because he wants to be put down and then he will try to run around the room but he is so wobbly that he will to a tumbly somersault and thud softly into the wall. upside down. And then I would die of happiness.
Cutest thing I’ve seen ever. Well, today anyways. I can no longer work; I have been left stupid by the cute.
Isn’t this Knut’s second appearance on the Overload? Is it possible to enchant him so that he may remain a bebbeh forever?
Ah, yes. Baby bears. I know for a fact there’s nothing cuter.
Chris — yes, I believe you are correct…
Thanks for sending the links to the German photos. Two in particular are overload material. The one with his paws-up-itude playing with the soccer ball; and the one where he’s honk-shuing with his tongue out.
This post just begs for me to link to the clip of a polar bear attacking a woman at a zoo, but it’s not cute I love polar bears! and yes, I will have one ear please.
i LOVE polar bear cubs! you should watch “arctic seas” from David Attenborough’s Blue Planet series. There is the cutest polar bear cub with mommy bear! sigh. i love cubs (and d. attenborough)
the grown up bears probably look at our ears the same way
Oh my, check out this video from “Knut’s blog” that BB and Tor linked to:
I’m absolutely slain by the way he walks (giving a whole new meaning to the word “ambling”) and by the shower in the end. And look at the lil nosie! *keels over from all the cuteness*
jules…thanks for pointing that out. for the first time in a long time, i was cooing out loud.
i’m dead. it’s official. i barfed rainbows and then my head went blooey. but dude, what a way to go!
Fuzzy soft and white
Adorable Bebeh Bear
I must snorgle him
Baby polar so fluffy!just like my BF he looks like a kid and hes got fluffy hair.
He’s called Knut? Thats a diasterous typo waiting to happen….
Behbeh bear Knut
it’s just too obvious…
You are totalllyyyyy Cute!
Darkshines — totally… especially considering how close the “i” is to the “u” on a standard keyboard… http://www.squidgrid.com/cute/Glossary.htm#Knitting
I wanna set up a playdate for him and that baby panda with the out of control ‘tocks. On film.
This is a polar bear from a German zoo. The Animal rights people over there are saying that this cute bear should have been put down, because his mother rejacted him. Now he’s being raised by a human instead of his mother…
Arrgh! It’s a crazy world out there. Let’s hope they spare his life:
Krys — I think this may be CNN doing a bit of pandering, by making this “news” (in my decidedly un-humble opinion). At this point, with all the publicity he’s received, there would be a GLOBAL outcry if Knut got put down. Even the “animal rights people” know it (and the zoo absolutely does). I wouldn’t worry too overly much.
This li’l guy looks like he’s ready for mischief!
yea yea he looks so cute and cuddly but the fact of the matter is that he would tear you limb for limb… polar bears are the only animals that hunt humans.
Here’s the article talking about how animal activists want to put down this poor thing. What is wrong with these people?!?!?
Augh! I saw that article!
It seems the zookeepers are protective of him, so I doubt it will really happen, but I can’t believe anyone could want to kill that poor prosh face =(
Is it he or she? Man, so cute.
DON’T !! PUT LITTLE KNUT TO DEATH
I READ THE STORY I STATED CRYING
IT’S A BABY TREAT KNUT LIKE IT WAS YOUR OWN CHILD . IT’S A BABY SAVE SAVE KNUT . LET IT BE TAKEN CARE OF BY PEOPLE . AND I LOVE THE PART THAT KUNT HAS ITS OWN TEDDY BEAR TO PLAY WITH.HOW COULD YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT PUTTING THIS CUTE BEAR TO DEATH. LET KNUT LIVE LIVE IN PEACE .
I GIVE MY MONEY TO WWF WILD LIFE FUND. TO SAVE PANDA BEARS AND POLAR BEARS, WHALES,DOLPHINS.
