Bootcuts star Cristal G. sent this one in.



  1. chanpon says:

    “Scared that bumble bee right back to his hive!! Hahaha, oh, I slay me.”

  2. He got an advance copy of Not Mike’s (or whatever his name is) new coffee table book!

  3. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    “The hills are alive,
    with the sound of muuuuuuuusic.”

  4. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

    ah, ah, ah, achoo!

  5. I made it to the top!

  6. Gigi (the original one) says:

    I’ll hide like this and then, right before the ceremony, I’ll jump out of Kate Middleton bridal bouquet!

  7. Oh the JOY!! Flowers tickle me! The best tickle in my life.

  8. MarvinKatt says:

    “…and then the otter said, That’s not an abalone, that’s my wife!”

  9. He’s allergic to pollen and about to sneeeeeeze.

  10. I love spring! Oh, how I love spring. And spring flowers.

  11. (The Original) Mel says:

    The fleurs tickle his belleh, obvy.

  12. Ah-Ah-Ah-CHOO! (allergies)

  13. Jiffknee says:

    He’s clearly high on flower power – or wacky weed, whichever you choose.

    “OMG, Cabin Boy is the funniest movie EVUR!” (which movie I could not make it through, in spite of being intoxicated.)

  14. 260Oakley says:

    He’s smiling because his stalks are up.

  15. cuz he knows the other varmints didn’t save 15% on their car insurance by switching to Geico!

  16. Christopher says:

    Needs “like” button!

    will aaaaaaaaaaalwaaaaaaaaays luhuv

  18. Aw come on! /moderation pout/

  19. LyndaLu says:

    Jiffknee, my thought exactly, high on flower power.

    Or maybe he’s just delighted he outfoxed the cat.

    Really an amazing picture! Never seen such a happy hamster.

  20. He just saw the cat fall in the pond!

  21. Nicole M. says:

    This could be an ad for Crest Whitening Strips.

  22. LyndaLu says:

    NO, I think he’s just getting ready to sneeze.

  23. “Listen, Sal, whaddaya mean MGM’s not making cartoons anymore? I just got a brand new bunch of glossies made up. Look at this one on the flowers. That’s cartoon gold. Gold!, Sal. Okay, fine, you know what? Get me Friz Freleng on line two. . . . He’s what?! Does Chuck Jones know about this?”

  24. Lorel J says:

    Apparently you had to be there.

  25. OOOOOOOOKe-la-homa! where the wind comes sweeping down the plain….(plane?)

  26. “Mine! MINE! All your white-flowered-what-its-names be MINE!” [maniacal high-pitched squeaky laughter ensues]

  27. At first I thought those were lowercase ells instead of capital eyes. It made a really weird sound in my head.

  28. Because it TICKLES!!!!

  29. A butterfly farted.

  30. “…and then Justin Timberlake said ‘I’m Banksy!'”.

  31. muffler says:

    (yaaaaaawns! . . . cause no one can yawn alone . . . )

  37. I have looked at this dormouse five times tonight. I don’t care why it’s laughing. It’s the cutest thing ever (today) (next to sleeping dormice) (next to my own pets)

  38. Heather says:

    Oh em gee, is that there a Harvest Mouse? Even their name sounds adorable!

    Although rats in lab tests have shown the ability to laugh when being tickled, I am not sure the same response is possible in mice. I think the leetle fella was simply caught pre-sneeze, those dusty little buds must have tickled his itsy bittle nossicles!

  39. — Ollie Ollie All Come Free! —

    “Here I am! You didn’t find ME! *Giggles insanely*

    A priest, a minister and a rabbi walk into a bar…

  46. Bwahahahaha!!!

  47. This is SUCH a fantastic photo! 🙂

  48. Yarrow. One of my favourite plants. Pretty AND very useful! And the pink variety smells delightful!

  49. MommaMackie says:

    Hmmmm…looks more to me like he’s winding up for a good sneeze from the big nose full of pollen that he got climbing up there! Look at those whiskers!

  50. Mary (the first) says:

    he’s laughing at that silly cat that was tricked into careening into a pile of plastic cups!

  51. And the doctor said I was allergic….HAHAHAHAAAAACHOOOOOO

  52. That’s not laughter, that’s PURE BLISS.

  53. *Alternate ending to “Horton Hears A Who!”

    Horton- “So what you’re saying is that Whoville really doesn’t exist, and it was you this entire time? Real funny… “

  54. Because dormice know they’re a-dor-able. (Or is he a harvest mouse?)

  55. Yes. The “Bohemian Rhapsody!” Oh, how Freddie Mercury would have approved.” 😉

  56. “I bowl. Drive around. The occasional acid flashback.”

  57. I agree – unrestrained joy! The earth laughs in flowers… and tiny rodents!

  63. Oh, ack! Jeanette McDonald and Nelson Eddy? Hmm. It does work.

  64. aurorae of chocolates says:

    “Ah-HaHaHa, HaHaHaHaHa…!! Oh my… Oh my! I climbed up here, to see what you were shooting at, and, realized it’s me! And now guess what, I’m stuck here, can’t get down now! Must be looking ridiculous… And I see, you seem delighted… that I’m stuck!! Go on, go on and shoot me this silly looking rodent… oh my goodness, this is SO embarrassing!! And by the way, the flowers kind of tickle… Or… is it… is it my own fur? Ah-HaHaHaHa! HaHaHa!!”

    He’s just in a really good mood =)

  65. That there is one happy, if sneezy little harvest mouse. I used to find these little morsels in summer back in England. They are so small that a family can nest in a tennis ball. Indeed we used to take old tennis balls, cut a small hole in them and tie them to a stick and hide them in fields to make nest boxes for them. Conservation of the cutest!

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

    I LIKE THIS ONE(and fart jokes generally do NOTHIN’ for me). 🙂

    I think mebbe it’s the contrast of an elegant flutterbye and the idea of its farting …

  68. JohnnieCanuck says:

    Double dang!!

  69. Another Miriam says:

    Well, this is a sad day I thought things were posted on CO before being reposted to imgur….

  70. wannadance says:

  71. wannadance says:

    which explains the swoopy way they fly…

    can someone explain ‘stalks are up’ to me? i have been up all night, not in usual clever, witty, highly intelligent state. more like breathless: bruised some ribs….
    glad to know that’s a hamster. i was webildered…

  72. wannadance says:

    LOL! for the win…

  73. wannadance says:

    but, but…cats are smart. looks like fun. like me, cats will do stuff over and over if it’s fun. if not, they will show you their tails and walk awe. not me. i will just wait for my next trick..

  74. wannadance says:

  77. He’s totally rocking out on the flower organ to the solo on Deep Purple’s “Highway Star” (a.k.a. his uncanny Jon Lord impression).

  78. 260Oakley says:

    It is a weak pun. For “stalks” substitute “stocks” (as in stock market). And now go to bed and rest your ribs.

  79. 260Oakley says:

  85. Gigi (the original one) says:

    It also makes Martian’s head explode!

  86. as the sun came up, Norman ran like a drug tested lab rat across the meadow towards home….overcome with the heady flush of last nights exploits, he rushed up the flower stalk and clinging to the flowery head, the sunlight streaming, he yelled with wild abandon, “She loves me!!!!!!!!!”

  87. baby birdie says:

    Obviously, this cute little flower hammie has just heard a good joke–possibly from another flower ham?

  88. h’es getting tickled where the sun don’t shine

    or he’s just happy with the dental work on those front toofus’s

  89. crashnandicoot says:

  102. She just got engaged!

  103. Yarrow, actually

  104. Because he knows I’m sitting at my desk at work and he’s not?

    Well it sounded funny in my head! Granted, everything sounds funny in my head …


  121. He played a prank on his owner by telling the BBC he was abused. “They woke me up! Would you believe it? I was HIBERNATING. The nerve.” And he’s having a good chuckle watching them get raided by the police.

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

  126. bargles says:



  127. As it would turn out, it was not catnip that Otis was gathering for the daily “distract the cat so you can steal all the delicious crumbs in Mrs. Godfrey’s pantry,” but mousenip, leading directly to an afternoon he would never remember, and his neighbor the shrew would never let him forget.

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

  165. Yes, I think this mouse dude abides….

  166. OMG! No WAY!! This little guy is totally the Trifolo Sing Along Mouse, except in a really cute, not-so-kinda-freaky-weird-lookin’ way.

    …Carry on…

  180. Me too. I have been pining for spring, but this winter is neverending. The first day that’s warm enough to out in short sleeves, when wind is warm and smells of flowers, I will be as happy as this little guy.

  181. Littlest laugh lifts littlest laugher!

  186. victoreia says:

  193. I WAS Lonesome Lenny’s little friend, but Lenny don’t move no more! 😀

  194. I can see Charlie Sheen’s house from here

  195. MoreOverloadPlease says:

    Oh dear, on the contrary. He is not laughing, or sneezing, or singing. Let’s start from the beginning.

    This is Felix. He is a harvest mouse. His best friend is a human. They meet every day after school and tell jokes and stories, play games and share snacks. Today is Felix’s birthday and his friend has baked him a lovely carrot cake. It is so big, he could live in it for months before he ate it all! He walks around the circumference, amazed at the size and beauty, then climbs a tall flower to get a view of the top. There is a candle, and “Happy Birthday Felix!” written in sunflower seeds. He has never celebrated a birthday before and listens in awe as his friend explains the custom. After clarifying what to do, his friend sits down, lights the candle and sings happy birthday. Felix’s tiny heart races with happy anticipation – he can’t WAIT to see if his wish will come true. He shuts his eyes tight, takes a deeeeep breath, and…..

    -*camera snaps*-

    BLOOOWWS out his candle.

  196. LyndaLu says:

    OK, so we’re all agreed. He’s/she’s just about to sneeze. (-:

    SUCH, an amazing picture!

  197. But . . . he has no green Fedora, for Dora, not Alice, not Annie, not Sadie, but for Dora . . .

  198. ” . . . . Harelip! Harelip!”

  199. “Rachel, I want you to send a dozen white roses to Chuck Jones’s family, and sign it, ‘A. Hamster.’ You what? Like I give a sh*t. What else? Oh, yeah, add ‘Thanks for the the f*cking job you paid me to do. Except no!.’ What am I thinking? ” Screw contracts. This is for my children to work out. Ooh, look at me! I’m a cute little animal! And yet, sentient beings are subject to BS here and abroad. If Wisconsin can’t do it for me, let’s hear it for Libya! Tiny animals either need to stand up (and look at the evidence in our collective Kodachromes) or get out the way!

    “Wildviolette, sign ‘A. Hamster.” to all good things, and don’t listen to anyone else. We live in interesting times. Ain’t that the f’ing truth? All those shows I did in the 50s and 60s? Straight to the IFRC.”


  201. Um, I thought it was either the beginning or the end of a yawn, not a sneeze.
    Ah, well.

  221. he totally is allergic to pollon and is sneezing. DUUUHHH.

  222. This is why I don’t like things like facebook, it turns social networking into a meaningless numbers game. Maybe your facebook page just isn’t frequented by as many people as cute overload. Does it really matter?

  231. Hi moderator,

    I think there’s a Photoshop job behind that picture. The “smile” doesn’t seems to be real. I’m curious to know if that’s the case. I’ve tried to ask the question twice but my comments hasn’t been published.

    So, the only thing I can say on this website is “Awwwwnnn so cuuute…”?

    He is SO obviously breaking into the hook-line of “Au Printemps” !

  233. it is probably not the case.

    if you only had a choice between comments about photoshopping and comments saying “awwn so cute,” i’d say go with the aww cute.

    theo, do you have any input on the photoshopping comments?

    (i’ll be over here, hidingk.)
