  2. Madeline says:

    Oooh!! I want to resize it and use it as a livejournal icon!! A DRAMATIC livejournal icon!

  3. For the love of jauntiness says:

    Awww…so cutely dramatic. I love this little guy, especially his tiny haunches. Jaunty!

  4. Wow. Instead of I Shall Leeck You, he looks like he saying I Shall Keel You.

  5. Kathryn says:

    Well described- So perfect- So 80s soap opera. Love his eyes. And the camera work, of course.

  6. Lioness says:

    Ah-hahahahah….that was soo funny!

  7. I’ve watched this 10 times and can’t stop laughing!

  8. Shannon Johnson says:

    I love it. Looks could kill with that little guy.

  9. moobie star says:

  10. Gopher Disapproval.

  11. Melissa B. says:

    Oh My Gosh That was perfect!

  14. One Eyed Daruma says:

    Mr. “What did you just say to me?!?!?” is now the screensaver on my cell phone!

  15. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    All this time you thought I was your father, but it really is….Dramatic music role credits.

  16. meacu1pa says:

    I can just see him with a little cape where he swooshes it up over his nose. Vampyre bat?? NO…I am the seductive vampyre go-fer.

    How DARE you offend my go-fer sensibilities! -=waggles eyebrows and wriggles nose=-

  17. I would like to see a whole telenovela with gophers.

    Gopher: “What is my motivation?”

    Director gopher: “Gopherella is in a coma after an accident involving a nut and doesn’t remember anything.”

  18. so perf

  19. i keep looking at this clip. its too funny! kudos to the person who shot this- zooming in just at the right moment to feel the full dramatic impact.

    i keep hearing the stabbing violin music from the shower scene in psycho.

  20. LOL! I can’t get enough of Senior Gopherto. Total telenova action. I don’t speak Spanish but I’m irresistibly drawn to those shows.

  21. AmyH
    totally agree,
    I flip around the cable and find myself staring at the spanish speaking channels like a car wreck, you just cant look away!
    and Senior Gopher reminds me of those hideous soaps where the offended party turns suddenly and the music rises “DADADA DAHHHHH”
    hilarious! his little lips are pursed just right for offended-ness.

  22. violetgreen says:

    Kinda looks like a prairie dog. But I’ll call him whatever he wants after that GLARE!

  23. ShelleyTambo says:

    He sorta looks like he’s doing what Joey Tribbiani would call “smelling the fart” acting.

  24. meacu1pa says:

    This is the look that every father would give when the daughter cries, “but daddy…i luf eem!”

  25. Dazie, LOVE the caption on that vid!

  26. That gopher is kinda creeping me out.

  27. Looks like Thriller to me.

  28. soulcal006 says:

    is it me or does it sorta look like Alfred Hitchcock?

  29. O RLY …

  30. luvinmalssomuch says:


  31. there is something very Austin Powers about this!

  32. Another quote from him could be: “Well, I guess the look I’m best known for is Blue Steel.”

  33. He is absolutely a telenovela star.

    I want to see a novela starring gophers, groundhogs, guinea pigs, gerbils, and any other rodent-like things beginning with ‘g’ (or any other letter).


  34. I will Pierce you with my steely gaze. How Dare you triffle with My Daughters Heart.

  35. Tracyflick says:

    If they made Spanish TeleNovells all with animals (THINK: Disapproving Rabbits, Kittehs, Squarrels) I would so watch it. Think of the voice overs, and the interspecies snorgling.

    Hamster wife (to husband) Aye! Mia! I caught you inter-snorgling with a kitteh!

    Hamster husband shurgs.

    The Drama.

  36. This is a cropped version.. There’s a bigger version being passed around the internet with subtitles at the bottom, calling this guy a prairie dog. I don’t think it’s a gopher..
    [/slight nuff]

    But I can’t stop laughing. It’s even better if you imagine “DUN DUN DUNNN” music playing in the background.

  37. just…can’t….stop…..laughing….

  38. Like zees.
    (Warning: there’s sound too)

  39. hananza says:

    Dazie – the Church Lady caps are so on the money, honey!

  40. zeroKFE says:

    Someone very much needs to make a YTMND matching this gif to audio from the Church Lady.

  41. GinMega says:

    I agree with violet, I think it’s a prairie dog.

    Cute nonetheless.

  42. Theresa says:

    How dramatics! It needs a dramatics soundtrack.

  43. You just said WHAT about my mother??!!??

  44. beenclawed says:

    This li’l guy has stolen C.O. today! The more I look the funnier it gets. Talk about the evil eye – WOAH!

  45. bats :[ says:

    Cripes! Gloria Swanson reincarnated!

  46. SO Telemundo.


  48. AlbertaGirl says:

    I clicked on this. AT WORK. My coworkers thought I was crying because I was face down on my desk, shaking, trying to keep the laughter inside! LOL, thanks Meg.

  49. El Perro del Prairie es muy bueno.

    Somewhere on YouTube, there must be animal telenovelas.

  50. R. Moore says:

    Bwa ha ha ha!

    I remember years of sitting at Grandma-Nana’s house watching telenovelas out of sheer boredom. Then one day we were eating at a Central American place, happily munching at papusas (still can’t spell that), and looked up at the television. The devious mastermind was going to drown two people by staking down a net at low tide with them beneath it. As the tide rose, they would slowly drown. Except that looking at it, you could see they could get up. Meanwhile, a chick pushed another chick down the stairs (again!) and something about a university professor… I don’t know. Mom giggled even more than I did knowing what they were saying.

  51. I half expected an organ cue. Funny clip!

  52. kit kat says:


  53. LOL! Anybody else hear Ibrahim Ferrer and Omara Portuondo singing “Dos Gardenias” while gophamster looks so lovelorn?

  54. I think I’ll be chuckling for some time after this one. I love rodents, the more dramatic the better!

  55. Okay, for the Spanish speakers out there:

    Amores Perros (de Pradera)

    Con Greta Jerbo, Mar Mota, Antonio Banderas (¨El Zorro¨), y Alejandro Jodorowsky (¨El Topo¨).

    !Esta vez, verá mucho más que su sombra!

  56. Kristina Taylor says:

    There were hundreds of these turning and glaring around Myspace last week when the Flaming Lips asked all their friends to change their defualt picture. I just knew it would make it on here, eventually!

  57. I put sound on it.
    cos lets face it, it needed this!

  58. Hee! I love it! I can’t stop watching it!

  59. Oh for the love of non-ironic melodrama! Sensationalism for all!

  60. Kritter says:

    Not a gopher–prairie dog.

  61. Alice Shortcake says:

    A masterclass in the art of Coarse Acting

  62. Oh my god, I can’t stop laughing. Too funny.

  63. zaferina says:

    This is addictive….the more you watch the funnier it gets!

    “No Columbo, you will never prove me guilty……NEVER!

    “no, not hungry thanks…….AH! Peanut Butter AND Nutella you say?”

  64. wolfwhocriedboy says:

    “I call this one Blue STEEL”



  66. How funny is he, it’s like something out of Dallas! Does anyone know how I can make this a profile pic that moves? Always wanted one of them, and this’ll be the best one ever!

  67. Beauregard says:

    Oh my Godz, yo!!! My submission made it!!! Woo! Go me!

  68. so it looks like the H in “Lizzy H.” stands for… Beauregard

  69. Beauregard says:

    Well, the H is silent you see, so sometimes it gets anglicized. Yeah, that’s it.

  70. I found it funny the first time.. but yea, the more I watch it.. the funnier it gets!!

  71. Baden's Mom says:

    Trish – I totally agree. I’ve been re-watching it since it was posted.

  72. fat lab love says:

    i couldn’t stop laughing

  73. guineapiggin9 says:

    My guinea pigs give me almost the same look when I disrupt them from eating!! LOL!

  74. I’m compiling all of the videos and images I can find… see:
