Sammy “Sugar” Glider, Alto Sax

Yeah, I coulda sold out and banked that sweet Kenny G coin, man, but that’s not my groove, baby. Like, I gotta stay true to my roots, go where my heart tells me.

Like, I bet he can hit those high notes from that curtain rod, Mark and Christal S.


  1. wicked adorable.


  3. I whole-heartedly concur.

  6. Those are whiskères.

    *quiet, reverent “oooooooooooooooooohhhh” from the gathered audience*

  8. Oh, Merci Theresa. I forgot zee fronch accent…

  9. WoW ! I’m having “Tank Girl” flashbacks !

  10. PS: Actually, my first thought when I saw Sammy was not that he was playing, but, erm, erm, um, smoking . . . ?

  11. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    Probably does a bit of that, too, in between sets. ;)

  12. Reminds me of an old jazz musician’s joke from the 1940s:

    So, these two cats decide to step outside during the set break and smoke some reefer. They duck into a nearby storefront and light up. Suddenly, a cop car comes tearing down the street, 60 miles an hour, sirens and lights blazing.

    The first musician turns to the second musician and says, “Man, I thought they’d never leave.”

  13. (The Original) Mel says:

    Hey. I resemble that remark. :D

  14. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    heh heh. *snerk*

    — Obligatory saxophone/ Bill Clinton joke. :)

  15. PPS: Check out those tiny hyperarticulated fingères!

  16. OMG!!! How tiny is this little cutie pie if that’s a CURTAIN ROD!!!

  17. 260Oakley says:

    He’s taking a curtain call.

  18. 260Oakley says:

    …after playing his musical interpretation of Steinbeck’s “Drapes of Wrath”.

  19. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:


  20. bookmonstercats says:

    *Double snerk*

  21. He’s shiny!

  22. Can I rub his belly when he’s done??!!!!

  23. His real name is Bullwinkle.
    Yes, that is a curtain rod. They are that small.
    Yes, Sar, you can rub his tummy if you can catch him.

  24. bookmonstercats says:

    Man, I can hear those, sweet, sexy sax vibes all the way to here, but…..

    … what exakkerly IS Bullwinkle doing????

    And with what?????

  25. The little stinker stole my ball-point pin, and was chewing on the end.
    Silly squirrel.

  26. “ball-point pin” is that the name of the little thingy that sticks out of the pen and goes outside your pocket?

    I’ll be jiggered I didn’t know it had an actual name, I learn something every day! :-)

  27. bookmonstercats says:

    Ah, I can see it now.

    *Completely keels over from the Qteness*

  28. Sweet Sammy Sugarglider, swinging some swell sax sounds.

  29. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:


  30. baby birdie says:

    O No, you misspelled “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” ;P

  31. Bleeding Gums Bullwinkle!

  32. (The Original) Mel says:

    Squerl Jazz. Yeah man.

  33. He’s all floofified!

  34. he looks so much different than my sugar gliders! so different. so brown! and non-stripey.

  35. christina says:

    he’s not a sugar glider; he’s a north american flying squirrel

  36. PLUS, he’s wearing even less than Sergio, the Sexy Sax Man.

  37. wow

  38. o no he/ she/ it DI-unt!!! says:

    (stifled, perverted-sounding “heh heh” )

  39. bookmonstercats says:

    Flipping heck.

  40. BatBlaster says:

    Odd it didn’t load at first. But when it did, it was adorable

  41. He’s cute as can be, but I’m about 98% sure that he’s a flying squirrel and not a sugar glider!

  42. christina says:

    make that 100% lol

  43. Ali-baba says:

    I’m kinda hearing the cantina song from Star Wars… ;-)

  44. Yes, yes Nae, Bullwinkle is a southern flying squirrel. Shiny, floofified and full of personality they are. We’re a tad short on sugar gliders this season….

  45. Unfortunately.. as CUTE as this animal is.. it is NOT a sugar glider.. it’s a small squirrel.

    Sugar gliders look much differently :)

  46. nice flute

  47. I just finished the Knut post, and am now crying and laughing simultaneously. I dig the CO vibe, even when it’s a rollercoaster. That is one hip squirrel!
