Puffy Powers Are Go!

Faster than a speeding puff pastry!

Chicklet teh Squirrel was rescued by Heather and photographed by Lynn T. Chicklet suffered head trauma as a baby and is half the size of other grey squirrels but twice as round (even though she’s on a strict diet.) Chicklet’s admirers call her the ‘Perfectly Spherical Squirrel.’



  1. Bashful says:

    Whoa. Squirrel be tryin’ to imitate my cat. “Yer doin it rite.”

  2. Perfect caption Pyrit! Chicklet is obviously the fourth lesser known Powerpuff girl, who’s secret power is to (literally) bowl people over with her fluffy roundness. Those wittle paws are just itching to save the world.

  3. 😯

  4. chubby… BUT it is cute

  5. Martha in Washington says:

    It’s chubby…and it’s a squirrel. OF COURSE IT’S CUTE!!! 🙄

  6. She’s not fat–she’s fluffy!

  7. Stellar says:

    Oh Em Gee it is a real-life Squishable! (www.squishable.com)

  8. OMG, Angel I say that all the time!

  9. Mary (the first) says:

    I like that excuse.. “head trauma as a baby”. I might use that one myself! Even though I am not this cute. 😦

  10. warrior rabbit says:

    Now that is roly poly.

  11. Heather says:

    You know the saying “I’m not overweight, just under-tall”? Chicklet actually gets to be under-tall! Jealous.

  12. … must.refrain.from.Jabba.the.hutt.jokes…

  14. Andi from NC says:

    Powerpuff Squirrel!

  18. Lucy's Mommeh says:

    All I could think was…..Angry Birds..the skwerls invade! Instead of pigs, we has skwerls!!

  19. This squirrel definitely needs a wafer-thin mint.

  20. Yeah, but she has a great personality.

  21. She’s so fat, when she sits around the house.
    She sits AROUND the house.

  22. Marshwiggle says:

    That, my friends, is the epitome of rotund.

  23. Rachael says:

    “You’re Norma Desmond. You used to be in silent pictures. You used to be big.”

    “I *am* big. It’s the *pictures* that got small. “

  24. Guinea Peeg Lover says:

    Oh….. mah…… gah…… I have NEVER seen a squirrel that round.

  25. Thanks, Gigi. I just bookmarked that page.

  26. “It’s huge! It’s enormous! It’s gigantic! I mean, they said it was big, but I didn’t expect it to be BIG!”

    (somebody referenced this image the other day. Sorry, I feel too much
    the lazy bum today, to relocate who ’twas. Perhaps skippymom? victoreia?)

  28. freetomato says:

    Recently, while playing Scrabble, I accidentally discovered a wonderful word in the dictionary, one that I now regularly use to describe my Boxer/Chow pup who jiggly and well-padded (and perfect, according to the vet). That word is “fubsy” ( http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fubsy )

    This, my friends, is a fubsy squirrelio!

  29. Becky, Bubba'smom says:

    Are we sure that Chicklet isn’t with squirrelettes? She needs my pommie to chase her around the backyard for awhile. Send her over.

  30. Becky, Bubba'smom says:

    Awesome, Gigi.

  31. (slo-mo voice) ssss….qqqq….uuuu….iiiii….rrrr….rrrr….eeee….llll….llll….

    all the dogs look, then look away so as not to be seen as wanting to cause embarassment by staring, except the poodle-cut poodles, who just say, “Oh. My. Ghod.”

  32. Little squirrel is gravitationally challanged.

  33. ShadowL says:

    My mom has a collection of squirrel figurines in various sizes that are round squirrels.

    We call them her Buddah Squirrels!

    I WISH i could rub Chicklets bellah!

  34. Cute!

    It’s a Popple!

  35. No weigh!

  36. Bring me a bucket, Paul!

    I think that Chicklet and I are related. And I love the nickname “Perfectly Spherical Squirrel.” Perhaps I can be the “Perfectly Spherical Berg?”

  37. Rachel of Cyberia says:

    Little squirrel creates its own gravitational field.

  38. M. Dale says:

    “Head trauma as a baby”…yeah, I’m using that as my next weight-loss-failure excuse. It would explain so many other things, too…

  39. She looks like one of those rap guy’s girlfriends. :mrgreen:

  40. Chicklet darlin’, we’re laughing with you, not at you! 🙂

    Poor baby – that must have been some kinda head trauma to mess with her (I guess, I’m no biologist) endocrine system and make her so, erm, spherical. It does make her pretty darn cute, though.

  41. Um, this is my first experience of the Moderation Lounge. Not sure what it was I said, but maybe it means I get a free drink???? Or maybe just a nap on the couch, which would be fine for my sleep-deprived self . . .

  42. Fird Birfle says:

    “Blorp” Tag, pweeze?

  43. Fird Birfle says:

    Little Squirrel is *cough* NOT a Little Squirrel!!!!

  44. I love that movie.

  45. They never put the blorp tag. I’ve asked many times. Sigh.

  46. Andi in NC says:

    indeed, the blorp is strong in this one….

  47. JenDeyan says:

    Awesome reference! I love that song.

  48. victoreia says:

  51. victoreia says:

    I think they tucked a martini bar in a corner, somewhere……

  52. Stosh ( keeper of the King of Costa Rica) says:

    If Chicklet falls over , she’ll roll until she hits a wall….
    I LOVE Her….A face plant from Chicklet–will knock your teeh out…Ha!

  53. Sad/cute, all the way!

  54. skippymom says:

    Weren’t me, I lack the skills.

  55. Fird Birfle says:

    *waves to skippymom and waves and blows kisses to victoreia, in apologiy for my lazy non-researchiness today* 😉

  56. Diananana says:

  71. victoreia says:
