  6. Fird Birfle says:

    Eez a wunnerful, wunnerful hedgie & tutu.

    However, in the interest of ultra-party-poopering, I find myself compelled to question the reliability of the statement in the hovertext….

    *fingers inside ears*

    “la la la la la!!! [etc]”

  9. Holy flippin’ cuteness, batman!! What a doll!

  10. sunnylessmum says:

    Redonkulous has reached a new level. And I love it!!

  11. I Wish I knew French to post something about her beauty and grace and ellegance!

  12. I’d try to hack it with my college francais, but I’d probably horrify the francophones on CO.

    Hep us out Fird!

  13. ROFL Just realized i quoted a billy joel Song?

  14. Fird Birfle says:

    *Attempt to activate Semi-Super (Mediocre??)
    Powers of Outrageous Frawnsche*

    *Just for the fun of the joy-ride, takes the Batmobile outta the cave for a spin*

    *dons spectacles*

    Hmmmmm… well, it *might* feel disconcerting if I tell les etudiants, that some of those voacb words are cognates ( which means that mostly they sound and are spelled and mean the same thing, btw l’anglas et le Frawnsche Outrageux….parce qui’ils viennent d’une seule langue…..examples: “beauty”/ l’anglais; “la beaute” / Frawnsche Outrageux…..”elegance”/ l’anglais; l’elegance” / Frawnsche Outrageux )

    HOWEVER, one could try something like:

    “ALORS!!! Que cette hérisson present de la beaute et de l’élégance !!!”

    Not certain whether I composed that in an accurate manner;
    but givin’ it thee ol’ College Try

    *rah, rah, RAH!!!!

  15. “cette hérisson” looks SO elegant!

  16. Well I don’t do Frawnsche Outrageux ( is that how french sound to others langages?) but here it would be “cet hérisson” cause we don’t have a french feminine word for lady hedgehog. Yes I’m ashamed of my native langage sometimes. Power to the lady Hérisson!

  17. i think the “eux” is too much for us–it would come out as “oox” or “ocks.” i’d allow either in my clubmaison.

  18. YAY for Frawnsche Outrageux!!!! And YAY for cette hérisson!!!

    I knew you’d come through, Fird! :)

  19. Here you go kittyadventures, although. Fird Birfle did a pretty good job of it.

    Madame l’hérisson possède une beauté et une grâce qui ne sont surpassé que par son élégance.

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    *does a Happy Dance b/c Gigi said my O. F. was moderately okay-ish*

  21. Excellent, aussi, Mlle Gigi!

  22. Thank you Gigi and Fird. THat is exactly what I was trying to say.

  23. I was trying to come up with some witty comment but my brain has turn to pink glittery mush.

  24. Fird Birfle says:

    Like “theeeeeeeeeeeees”???? ;)

  25. Yep, that’s about it :lol:

  26. Also ALso… Jumps up and down… the title reminded me of one of the songs/musics from Zomba class. Ballie ballie Boom boom boom (Not the title just one of the lines)

  27. Zumba class 8O

  28. LOL Well my personall take is it ought to be spelled ZOOM-ba Class!

  29. Oh, I’m not really argiung with you. It’s just that the whole idea of Zumba Class gives me nightmares. 8O

  30. skippymom says:

    If Harry Belafonte is the teacher, can I join the class?

  31. Of course! When have I ever said no? :P

  32. skippymom says:

    Shouldn’t you be posting a video here of a certain song from a certain musical about cowboys and such?

  33. You mean . . . Theesss?

  34. That’s just my Zumba Dance class.

  35. skippymom says:

    Theresa, I couldn’t play the sound, but I just watched your video and my head is spinning out of control.

  36. skippymom says:

    ZOMBIE CLASS!!!!!!! That’s what I want to take!

  37. LOL as I am a clumsy dancer, it is always an experience every time I go… mostly because I can visualize what I look like in my head as I dance and I spend lots of time snickering at myself. The ladies in the class all dance beautifully .. for this reason I hide at the back in the furthest corner I can get to… hoping I am not throwing anyone off their timing. Baillie boom, Baile Boom, Baille boom boom boom.. Shakes hips. Falls in heap of giggles on the floor.

  38. When ever I look at hedge hogs I want to pick them up and pet them… it looks like they would have smooth fur but sadly it involves lots of pin pricks and OW OW OWWs.

  39. I’d still do it, though! They’re so adorable, and their little faces just kill me.

  40. Pet them? I want to hug them and squeeze them and call them George! (ouch ouch ouch)

    DID YOU KNOW that in medieval bestiaries hedgies were pictured carrying fruit stuck on their spines? It’s a very cute visualization, here’s one carrying grapes in a vineyard:

  41. That website is awesome, Theresa! It’s like a Medieval Cute Overload!

  42. Ohh no, my Cliff Clavin-like comment has been moderated! Mmmm, nachos!

  43. victoreia says:

    From now on, I’m going to hear Theresa’s posts being read by Cliff Clavin in my head!

  44. Oh, the spirit of Cliff Clavin, perhaps, but the voice of Eleanor Roosevelt. Or Mae West.

  45. Thank you Theresa… Now I have visions of Hedgies dancing around with all manner of fruit attached to their quills

  46. Something wrong with that? :P

  47. Yeah!

  48. Ali-Baba says:

    I don’t think so! It makes me envision Carmen Miranda hedgies w/fruit hats! :-)

  49. phred's mom says:

    beep beep boop boop

  50. It’s time to roll up the interwebs and pack them away, for now we have seen it all.

  51. hmstracylee says:

    oh my! a hedgie in a tutu!

  52. Fird Birfle says:

    *pulls the Hello Kitty Defibrathingamajigg outta the hall closet*

  53. Fird Birfle says:

    *Wonders, whether Theresa’s hovering anywhere nearby ….*

    “SONJA HENIE ‘s TUTU!!!”

  54. skippymom says:

    Hey! I’m the one who usually says that! *punches self in face*

  55. Don’t drive like my brother, Skippymom. :D

  56. PS: Sonja’s Tutu– over the Bronko Nagurski Long Underwear!

  57. Look UP, Firdie, way way up! :P

  58. Fird Birfle says:

    Also, Hedgies score quite high on the Proverbial B(eady) E (ye) F(actor).

  59. Yeah, beady eye factor is OFF THE CHARTS on this one!

  60. 260Oakley says:

    Compared to the mighty Hedgekova, all other ballerinas are spineless.

  61. Bravo Brava and Bravo yet again!

  62. Redonk!!!

  63. Piqué

  64. ;-)

    Et ‘plié’ is what you use to get the spines out ;-)

    Best. Pyrit hovertext. EVAH!

  65. victoreia says:

    *curses lack of hovertext on iGadgets*

  66. Same here :(

    Maybe CO could use “cap-shuns” instead of hovertexts?

  67. Happy to translate!
    “En pointe” is a part of classical ballet technique , meaning ‘edge’og’

  68. [Ahem]

    Alt-text can be viewed on iOS devices.
    The third comment down explains how to set it up directly from the device. It works great.

    [end PSA]

  69. victoreia says:

    Thanks, J.B.! I shall bookmark that ASAP on the silly iPhone…..(assuming I can read the screen; cursed aging eye!)

  70. Ole!!
    Risque!! (Ahem;….. Noes, not that one!!!) :roll:

  71. Fird Birfle says:

  73. That’s my hedgie! She’s the prettiest little ballarina ever. :)

  74. Fird Birfle says:
