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.

    He looks SO soft! 8)

  4. Now those right there are some impressive whiskers.

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

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

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

    heh heh. *snerk*

    — Obligatory saxophone/ Bill Clinton joke. 🙂

  8. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

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

  9. PPS: Check out those tiny hyperarticulated fingères!

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

  11. He’s shiny!

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

  14. I whole-heartedly concur.

  15. 260Oakley says:

    He’s taking a curtain call.

  16. 260Oakley says:

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

  17. 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.

  18. Those are whiskères.

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

  20. Bleeding Gums Bullwinkle!

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

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

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

  23. 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?????

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

  25. (The Original) Mel says:

    Hey. I resemble that remark. 😀

  26. (The Original) Mel says:

    Squerl Jazz. Yeah man.

  27. He’s all floofified!

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

  29. “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! 🙂

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

  31. BatBlaster says:

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

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

  33. wow

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


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


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

    (stifled, perverted-sounding “heh heh” )

  37. Ali-baba says:

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

  38. 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….

  39. bookmonstercats says:

    *Double snerk*

  40. bookmonstercats says:

    Ah, I can see it now.

    *Completely keels over from the Qteness*

  41. bookmonstercats says:

    Flipping heck.

  42. baby birdie says:

    O No, you misspelled “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.” ;P

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

    Sugar gliders look much differently 🙂

  44. nice flute

  45. 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!

  46. christina says:

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

  47. christina says:
