This butterfly is all extending his tongue into this turtle’s eye for some "nectar." Extreme interspecies snorgling.


Ouch, Johanna S. —that hoits.

  4. Well at least this will not get them in trouble like the pug porn one will..

  5. Is that a charlie-bit-my-finger reference from you tube?
    OUCH charlie!!!

  6. That is just frightening. In a good way, of course. 🙂

  7. there were totally pandas!!!! and they were super cute….bring back the pandas!

  8. hovertext rocks on ice. is it just me, or does that flutterby have a GINORMOUS head? (For a flutterby, that is.)

  9. Kevin L. says:

    I’ve had a larger version of this picture stored on my hard drive as a wallpaper for the past three years.

  10. Maybe it’s not a flutterby with a ginormous head, but instead a wee faerie turning the turtle into a prince.

    Or maybe it’s an alien, sucking out his eye fluid. ew.

  11. possumpiratess says:

    OH, the cruelty to Tur-teelllz! I’m so dissapointed! Shame!

  12. possumpiratess says:

    oh, wait- French snorgling….
    hee hee

  13. berthaslave says:

    There were pandas? Why are the balloon dog comments closed?

    Do you think the butterfly is really a turtle dentist?

  14. Awe… butterfly kisses!

  15. berthaslave, I’m guessing it was the brewing commentroversy about the safety of the dog popping the balloons. Or maybe Theo just likes screwing with us. 😉

    What I’m wondering is why I’m staring at an ad for ChnLove.com. I find it both strange and hilarious…

  16. Daphne Moss says:

    Add to chorus…want pandas!!
    But this is illegally adorable…

  17. Ohhhh, how sweet!

    This is a picture I would never think was cute until I was forced to consider it as such. And having done so, I agree.

  18. Awwww that is just ridiculously sweet!

  19. Turtle, if snorglin’ you is wrong, I don’t wanna be right…

  20. Whew! I thought I was going crazy there for a minute. First I saw pandas, and then there were none. Glad I’m not alone! 😉

  21. The butterfly doesn’t have a big head, it’s just got a big mouthful, on account of having bitten of more than it can chew. This sometimes happens with butterflies. I knows because I eyes ya.

  22. off,

    the butterfly bit off the second “f”.

    I eyes ya butterfly!!!!!!

    I could say that all day.

  23. Ugly Underunload says:

    ZOMGZ! UNPOSSIBLES! Maybe they will make turtle-pillar babies, who mature to fly out of their cocoon-like shell.

  25. I wonder how long the turtle waited before going CHOMP. Haha. Cute.

  26. “A butterfly drinks a turtle’s tears / But how do you know he really needs it?”

    (Elvis Costello, Deep Dark Truthful Mirror)

  27. Awww! That is cute and yet not quite the same as interspecies snorglingk between pets … it’s the sort that happens in virgin wilderness! Pewcioush!

    By the way, that’s a terrapin, not a turtle – you can tell from the bright markings on its head.

  28. Flutterby to terrapin….
    “Does it hurt when i do this??? [[poke…poke]] Hmmm, ok. How ’bout this?”

  29. Hon Glad says:

    Dear Turtle I shall drink your tears and calm your fears.

  30. I wish there was a second pic. Pulled back, it reveals that that “log” is actually a smiling alligator cheefully taxi-ing a bunch of passengers

  31. That’s just extremely sweet!

  32. gravyboat says:

    Butterfly kees! *smak smak smak*

  33. The dissin’ kitteh has a bizarre, compelling symmetry. I’m falling into its furry purrrfection.

  34. The butterfly thinks the yellow spots on the tortoise’s head are yellow flowers. Silly flutterby.

  35. acelightning says:

    That picture is both disturbing and beautiful…

  36. The panda picture had been posted on this site about five times. Look through the archives if you want to see it.

  37. That really is very sweet.
    *Cue Barry White music…*

  38. A turtle walks into a doctor’s office with a butterfly on his head. The doctor, startled, says “How long have you had this?!” The butterfly replies, “I dunno, Doc, it started as a little pimple on my butt!”

  39. Hon Glad says:

    Theresa: Snort!

  40. What? No C.O.X.C.U.?

  41. Why was the balloon-hunting terrier closed for comments?

    It’s not like they were balloons covering a stripper.

  42. momof2kitties says:

    Darn those nuffers who caused teh puppeh balloon comments to be closed. I loved it!
    Not to be outdone, these guys are cute, too! I second the call for a C.O.X.C.U.!

  43. I made up a wee caption contest with my workmates for this pic. Here are the results:

    “So… do you think I need a nose job?”

    “Look, the wife’s back any minute, if you don’t get that lipstick off me and get outta here, we’re in big trouble!”

    “Is that a turtle under that shell, or are you just pleased to see me?”

    “You think the dating service got it wrong?”

    “If you think I’m a flower, you really need glasses.”

    “So when you crawl out of your shell will you have wings too?”

    “Does my butt smell funny?”

    “You know you shouldn’t wear your glass eye swimming dear.”

    “Just jiggle a bit higher, then we can get the sport channel!”

    “Are you my Mummy?”

    “I’m…. gonna…… SNEEZE!”

    “Right, On the count of three you throw your head back and I’ll go into a double pike with a twist. The judges will love it. 1…2…”

    “Can you scratch a little to the left… no further round… arghhhh that’s better :-)”

    “Next Floor . . . ., Flowers, plants…. Going Up !!’

    “Look into my eyes, on the count of 3 you will think you are a chicken”

  44. i need a cute overload ENHANCE on this one.

  45. The hubby said “oh that’s photoshopped” And I gave him a long hard stare on top of my glasses until he got the point.
    Oh pretty pretty butterfly. Enhance please enhance!!!
