The Year In Cute: The Meeting Will Come To Disorder

Gentlemen, 2008 was a banner year for the Legion of Evil.  Our operatives scowled, glared, sneered, grimaced, glowered, frowned, harrumphed upon and generally disapproved of more things than at any time in the storied history of our secret fraternity.  And now, it gives me great displeasure to present the 2008 Evil Awards:

No, Mr. Bun -- I expect you to DIE!

Best Serial Disapprover: Phineas Wayne Boggs, currently at large in the Philadelphia area;

Good evening, Clarice ...

Best Tough Guy: Vinnie "The Glare" Torino, leader of the East Side Scowlers;

Ah yoo tawkin' ta me?  I said, AH YOO TAWKIN' TA ME?!
New Puppy, originally uploaded by ETRONCOSO.

Best Scheming: Mack E. Yavelli, of Florence, Italy;

I'm hatching a new plan even as we speak!

Most Disturbing: Flarxle "Lips" Xeeglatz, from the planet Orgulon VI


Dishonorable Mention: Art D., Jennifer N., Lori W., Mahala K., and Lisa S. Photo credit for disapproving Bun: (I’m just not sure what to say……, by Carly & Art.)



  1. I do so love the kitteh!! He’s only 1% evil and 99% ticked off.

  2. I think there is a caption missing, for the puppy methinks.

  3. The Mick Jagger fish is really awesome…

  4. @M: The caption for the pup is “Best Tough Guy.”

  5. berthaservant says:

    I love awards season! This is SO much more entertaining than the Golden Globes (and 19874 times more legitimate!)

  6. Yay Derbster! Derby is indeed the champion of disapproval. I quake.

  7. last pic ‘shopped?
    it looks unreal

  8. I live in the Philadelphia area! I’ll be looking for that cat, and we can have a tough guy showdown.

  9. Hilarious hover over the kitteh…totally spot on.

  10. Ooops, I meant the “clarice” hover text…

  11. OMG Mr Bun Hover text LOLOLOLOL

  12. I am not even worthy of such disapproval…

  13. Thank you, thank you. It’s quite an honor. I fully expect you to continue to disappoint me in the coming year. harumph.

  14. hahaha Mack E. Yavelli….I see what you did there :p

  15. Black kitty looks exactly like one of our little boys down to the teeny white napkin under his chin. And he is a schemer, continually hatching plans to force me to snuggle him. Somehow the schemes always work…

  16. That cat will always make me laugh!

  17. Again, thank you. More of my constant disapproval can be seen here:

  18. Boomer's Babysitter says:

    Well, if Xeeglatz isn’t ‘shopped, those are the most humanoid leeps on a crustacean I’ve ever hoped never to see. What, may I ask is that lip COLOR, though? Can’t find it in the Avon catalog!

  19. Boomer's Babysitter says:

    Also, puppy mr tough guy doesn’t look so much “tough” as shy, or possibly in “trouble.” Wasn’t me, he/she says… Oh, OK, all is forgiven… puppy hugs!! puppy hugs!!

  20. kibblenibble says:

    Captions & Hovertext–ROFLMAO 😀
    This is sheer genious, and just what I needed. Thank you.

    PS I love the perfect white triangle that is grey kitteh’s muzzlepowshe.

  21. victoreia says:

    As usual, NTMTOM, your hover text KILLS ME!

  22. (wiping eyes)

  23. “Mack E. Yavelli” snerk!
    I love historical LOLz. See my “Brief History of Disapproval”:

  24. lucy's mommeh says:

    Boomer, it looks like the fire engine red lipstick my Aunt Dutch used to wear..

    Oh, and it looks like the Pro-to-go Cherry Glisten might be close for the fish lips.

    Yeah, Avon.I sells it.

  25. victoreia says:

    Okay, if “Lips” Xeeglatz is the most disturbing, and Mack (the pupster) is the most scheming, what category did the black kitteh win?

  26. That is an extremely disapproving bun.

  27. warrior rabbit says:

    Derby? I thought you were Cinnamon! I’m sure I’ll be disapproved of by both of you, now. [slinks away meekly]

  28. Tough times call for touch att-i-tudes, and sometimes cat-i-tudes. Brilliant.
    I thought the bunneh was Cinnamon, too, there is another out there!

  29. Ah…I see you’ve laid down the gauntlet of cute. Clever and sneaky move. Well, I accept your challenge! I will endure the dangerous and extreme levels of cuteness and scroll through each and every photo!

    Hah! Your move.

  30. DISAPPROVER is hilarious!!

    TOUGH GUY? I don’t buy it for a minute. 🙂


  31. I think Xeeglatz is not so much disapproving of us, it’s just that he’s really, really miffed over the bad lip collagen implants.

  32. Warrior — to clarify:

    (a handy and useful guide for intrepid explorers of teh internets)

  33. Sahrawi Wife says:

    Flarxle “Lips” Xeeglatz, from the planet Orgulon VI

    Kitty caption : Good evening clarice ~~ Bwahahahahhaa!!!!
    *Rolling on the floor with laughter *:0)

    Puppy says : “If you touch me I will bite your hand off ! I am NOT happy !”

  34. AuntieMame says:

    You really should warn a body, first. I saw that disapproving bun, and I had to step back from the computer. Srsly.

    And if the pup is “The Glare,” then the kitteh is missin’ a caption.

  35. fish eye no miko says:

    AuntieMame said: “And if the pup is ‘The Glare,’ then the kitteh is missin’ a caption.”

    Yep. There’s no kitteh caption.

  36. The second kitteh DOES NOT have a caption. SOMEONE ADD A CAPTION!!!!!

  37. the second black kitteh is my by ‘beeyad’ kitteh, Oreo. Found in my daughter’s Easter basket. 🙂 Oreo is very honored to be re-posted in the Evil Awards. heh heh heh…

  38. warrior rabbit says:

    Thanks for the tutorial, Theo! LOL! I will have to study up, as the differences are still a little fuzzy. (Or furry, I guess.)

    Cinnamon seems more harrumphy, though, with more of the look of a grumpy old British dude. Sort of… Churchillian.

  39. totalee puppy says:

    To me, Cinnamon looks like the faithful and
    respectable butler who has opened the door to find a basket full of caroling
    opossums expecting him to bring figgy pudding…

  40. NotAnotherMilo says:

    Yay Oreo! Is he waiting to entrap the Easter Bunny? or just wanting to get his pawsies on some Peeps?

    Love black kitties. They’re quite devious…mine’s working his way into the kitchen cabinets as I type…

  41. That pup tewtally looks like Salman Rushdie in puppy form.

  42. I think I got it; it’s just tricky. The captions are on top, & lots of folks are still looking for them below out of habit. But yes, they’re all there.

  43. Those are such Mike hovertexts. “Hatching a plan?”

  44. Julie — it IS tricky. The captions switch from below to above, and skip right over Lechter Kitty. My advice? Go ahead and ask him for a word or two, but expect some significant quid-pro-quo.

    Oh, and ask *politely*.

  45. Web came, we saw, we disapproved.

  46. Web, was a typo, but it sort of fits.

  47. “Good evening, Clarice…”


  48. I still think the crab face looks like Voldemort. wwooblahhyuakkypoo. But cute. Go Figure.

  49. Whoa. Um. Bun is, like, wrathfully disapproving. I am skeered.

  50. Gail White says:


  51. Um… Gail, at a guess (which is multiple layers deep, since details provided are scarce), your web browser doesn’t know what your default email client is.

    Are you clicking on the “Email to a Friend” link, up there?

  52. AHAHAHAHA the cat… slays me… love it

  53. cute puppeh does not quite fit in this group of misfits….

  54. warrior rabbit says:

    Totalee puppy, I LOL at your scenario. It is very easy to imagine the harrumphy, Scroogian displeasure of a Cinnamon butler faced with possum carolers demanding figgy pudding. Harrumph! Bah humbug! [door slams]

  55. Your hovertext-fu compels me.

  56. LoL, that underwater creature really does look like a space alien!
