I’ll take that one

[Plucks delectabuhl ham from Clementine box]

Psssst, look who crawled in thar:

Colleen B.’s ham need vitamin C!


  1. eww…thought it was a moldy clementine like the ones that hide in the bottom of the crate

  2. crrrazycatlady says:

    So did I! Being a single gal, I have that problem–fruit gets fuzzy before I can eat it. I’ll have to look closer next time before I throw it out!

  3. Yeah, my “fuzzy fruit” is never THIS cute!

  4. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    that rhymes :)

  5. Kathleen in Canada says:

    LOL I’m glad I’m not the only one

  6. Hmmm, looks like one of those Clementine’s has gotten a little fuzzy …

  7. Don’t you just hate it when fruit does that?


  8. Beady eyes, too!

  9. OMG at first I thought that was a super moldy clementine!! Phew. Thank goodness it was a cute hammy.

  10. fish eye no miko says:

    Same here! And the above-picture caption said “ham”, and I was really confused… Thank Qte for the close up picture!

  11. I thought it was a moldy clem, too.

    Citrus scented hammy!

  12. Donkey in Shrek: “I like that boulder. That is a nice boulder.”
    Hammy: “I like that clementine. That is a nice clementine.” :D

  13. I love clementines and if I was as weeny as Mr. McHammersons I’d crawl in a bag of the too so I could enjoy that wonderful citrusy smell. *SNORF*

  14. Gracie's Mom says:

    Mmmmm…..I’m with you Lillith! YUM!

  15. cyberpunkrocker says:

    At first look, I thought that one of the orangey things was moldy… LOL

  16. cyberpunkrocker says:

    Great minds think alike, it seems…

  17. When your fruit is that furry, it’s time to throw it out.

  18. «Small ones seldom differ», I was once told after quoting that!

  19. I’m grateful for the XtremeHamhance! Without it, that just looks like a fuzzy cutie! lol

  20. I was wondering, “since when did moldy food fit the Rules of Cuteness”… till I scrolled down.

  21. Clementines are clearly ham-sized. Henceforth in my house they shall be called Hamentines!

  22. LOL Birdcage… and a new term is born… hamentines they shall be fore me too!

  23. I second that. = : )

  24. Sigh. I bought clemmies yesterday and I didn’t get the compementary hammie. I’ll mos def be returning them for a full refund (insert lip pout here)!

  25. I know! I want my gift with purchase!

  26. Has this ham been hanging around with the cat? It seems like boxhab might be in his future.

  27. I have a picture of one of my cats smooshed into a Cuties box. It is indeed very cutie. T

  28. This why I lubz Meg.
    Isn’t she awesome.

  29. Carmen Mirhamda chooses a new costume.

  30. The lady with the tutti-frutti ham?

  31. But…in the close-up the ham is outside the bag?

  32. yes but still inside the box

  33. Oh my darling, Oh my darling,
    Oh my darling Clementine!
    You are nommed and gone forever,
    Where’s my next Clementine?

  34. BRAVO! :clapclapclap: (now I haz an earwormz)

  35. Lisa Shalet says:

    No time for comments…I have to rush out and buy 500 boxes of Clementines to search for a cute hammie.

  36. However many it takes to find a special, as Birdcage aptly decreed, Hamentine, I’m right with ya!

  37. Clementine!

  38. Gigi (the original one) says:

    Much better than the prizes in cereal boxes! They never give cute hammies!

  39. Orange you glad you chose the hamster?

  40. Nice!

  41. Well done!

  42. Alice Shortcake says:

    *Buries nose in fur to savour the delicious tangy aroma*

  43. We have a bag of these on the kitchen table at the office!

    No hammie, though… :(

  44. Is it mimicry or camouflage?
    Anywayz: I am glad zhe haz no zniper rifle…

  45. That’s my hammy Pinky!

  46. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    YAY Pinky!

    YAY katz!

  47. He/she is orangey now!

  48. They’re especially good wrapped in Prosciutto. :mrgreen:

  49. Clementines, or hamsters?

  50. I think ham wrapped in ham would definitely be a case of overload.

  51. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    True story
    (if ye’re skeered, now’s the time to “Run Away!!”):

    One of the Proverbial Knucklehaid Tree Brudders is famed (or infamous) throughout Thomasland, for (cough, wheeze)
    sprinkling SALT ONTO his ham.

    (hangs head in shame of Knuckehaid Brudder)

  52. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    Repression dun’ struck (temporarily, j’espere)….
    Please tune in again later, pholks ….
    if (evil cackle) you DARE …….

    (I don’ know how to make the lil’ devil emoticon….)

  53. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    YAY Theresa :)
    That’s the one —

  54. You mean :twisted: ?

  55. I have often been afraid to find spiders or other insects in a bag of fresh fruit. This, however, would be acceptable.

  56. i once found a tiny Snailio Iglesias in my spinach salad. 8O

  57. lisa shalet says:

    Did he sing?

  58. Yes, he sang “To All the Gastropods I’ve Loved Before.” I thought he would be my ticket to fame and riches, but he never sang in front of anyone else. :(

  59. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    somehow that reminds me of a certain Froggie Fellow…………

  60. No “I’m going to eat you” tag?

  61. notceilingcat says:

    Aw, my oranges never come with hamsters!

    Off topic, but needs to be posted: New Simon’s Cat! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nn2h3_aH3vo

  62. Thanks notceilingcat! I love Simon’s cat!

  63. (The Original) Mel says:

    Oh my Hammy
    Oh my Hammy
    Oh my Hammy Clementine

  64. I’m glad to know I’m not the only one who thought the cute little hammie was an incredibly moldy fruit at first, lol.

    Such a precious little guy!

  65. Sun-keest, more like!

  66. My funny hamentine…
    sweet comic hamentine..
    You make me smile with my heart
    Your looks are laughable
    Yet you are my favorite work of art…

    Stay little hamentine stay..
    Each day is hamentine’s day…

  67. :-D

  68. Threadjack!

    Hey everybody! There’s a new Simon’s Cat video!

  69. Yay! So snerkful!

  70. Martha in Washington says:

    We’ve only lost one end of the garland–so far!

  71. yet the seasonis early!
    HEheheheh! keep us posted Martha!

  72. That’s why I have a plastic table top tree anchored to the wall.

  73. Plastic table-top tree–check. (Not anchored to the wall, but on top of the TV stand.)

    (Just keep an eye on those trees with the filament lights built in. Many of our are mysteriously bent…..hence “on top of the TV stand”.)

  74. aww, little guy was jes’ tryin to prevent scurvy on his long voyage…
    I shall now pack a Hamentine in my USN bf’s lunch sack : ) for this very same reason

  75. Martha in Washington says:

    I wish MY store carried that brand! *pouts*

  76. Fuzzball in the side pocket…

  77. Where’s QoD? I have something for her!

  78. Queen of Dork says:

    Hi! (waves). Is it a hamster??!?

  79. No, it’s– THIS!

  80. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    I got that story sideways. sorry. (blush)

    The song “Come-on a My House” was the one I had in mind. Her family said she didn’t care for the song and when she tried to insist she wouldn’t record it, the story is that the record co. executives told her that the recording contract wouldn’t be available without that song …ergo …

  81. sssshhh, ONHSID, I’m SAVING that!

  82. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:


    (acc to a docum. I saw on pbs, R. Clooney despised the song when the record co. requested her to record it…)

  83. Queen of Dork says:

    Thanks, Theresa! It’s telling me to go to YouTube to watch it so I’ll go try that. :)

  84. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Theresa: OOPS!!!! (blushing agin)

  85. Sweet clahamentine, oh, oh, oh!
    (sings in Neil Diamond voice)

  86. Haha! First I thought it was a mouldy clementine!

    Hey ham, that camouflage isn´t quite working… ;)

  87. It’s hamouflage. And it looks exactly like a moldy orange!

  88. As long as that hammy sits still, no one will grab… but just one blink of those anerable beady eyes and the cover is blown…super-snorgling WILL occur.

  89. Hope that was found before a hand was put in the box!

  90. What if one of the moldy fruits I threw away was a cute hamster!

    Oh noooes!

    /runs off to search for a hanmster in the trash.

  91. i got the same problem only it’s with rabbits and rutabagas

  92. Martha in Washington says:

    “Rabbits and Rutabagas” is a great name for a band!

  93. Catsquatch says:


    I wasnt the only one who saw a moldy orange ;D

  94. I’m ready for some fresh cute for my Caturday. Pleeeeeeez?

  95. When I were a lad; at Christmas we would have (in one of my Dads long socks) a tangerine a new coin, [probably a shilling] some chocolate money and a sugar mouse. Try giving that to one of todays kids!

  96. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad, you soooo remind me of reading one of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s books about a Christmas she and her sister Mary had. They were thrilled to receive each a tin cup, a candy cane, a little cake and a penny! :) Oh, the love of a time as sweet as that!

  97. Hi Queenie – Yes it makes me sound positively ancient. By your lack of posts it seems to say, your still working hard. As my cyber goil, you go easy now. :)

  98. The first picture is very cute but I am afraid the second one might mislead people to feed citrus fruit to hamsters. So a friendly reminder here: Hamsters cannot eat any fruit from the citrus family! It’s harmful for them!

  99. Good reminder: Acidic fruits are bad for hamsters. Pinky took a nibble out of the peel, but he didn’t eat any :)

  100. the peel is the worst part! citrus contains something that can cause kidney failure and cancer, especially in male rodents. NEVER feed them any citrus!

  101. They don’t call them Little Cuties for nothing!
