    En pointe

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

  6. sunnylessmum says:

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

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

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

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

    Hep us out Fird!

  10. 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)

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

  12. 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.

  13. phred's mom says:

    beep beep boop boop

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

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

    *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!!!!

  17. 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….

  18. hmstracylee says:

    oh my! a hedgie in a tutu!

  19. Fird Birfle says:

    Like “theeeeeeeeeeeees”???? 😉

  20. Fird Birfle says:

    *pulls the Hello Kitty Defibrathingamajigg outta the hall closet*

  21. Fird Birfle says:

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

    “SONJA HENIE ‘s TUTU!!!”

  22. Fird Birfle says:

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

  23. “cette hérisson” looks SO elegant!

  24. 260Oakley says:

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

  25. Zumba class 😯

  26. Look UP, Firdie, way way up! 😛

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

  28. I DON’T HEAR YOU. 😛

  29. 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.

  30. Yep, that’s about it 😆

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

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

    I knew you’d come through, Fird! 🙂

  33. 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:

  34. Excellent, aussi, Mlle Gigi!

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

  36. Redonk!!!

  37. Piqué

  38. Bravo Brava and Bravo yet again!

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

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

  41. 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.

  42. Ole!!
    Risque!! (Ahem;….. Noes, not that one!!!) 🙄

  43. Something wrong with that? 😛

  44. 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!

  45. Beyond. Redonkulous. Just in time.

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

  47. That’s my hedgie! She’s the prettiest little ballarina ever. 🙂

  48. OK, is that really a tutu or is that a modified shower scrubber? Either way, very cute!

  49. skippymom says:

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

  50. We like rats around here.

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

  52. skippymom says:

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

  53. hmstracylee says:

    Public Service Announcement, y’all!
    GO to the etsy shop linked – there are MORE

  54. That’s just my Zumba Dance class.

  55. Ali-Baba says:

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

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

  57. skippymom says:

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

  58. Fird Birfle says:

    YAY PPE !!!!

  60. Fird Birfle says:

    *fingers inside ears*

    “la la la la la!!! [etc]”

  61. Fird Birfle says:

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

  62. Of course! When have I ever said no? 😛

  63. 😉

    Et ‘plié’ is what you use to get the spines out 😉

    Best. Pyrit hovertext. EVAH!

  64. Yeah!

  65. skippymom says:

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

  66. skippymom says:

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

  67. victoreia says:

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

  68. victoreia says:

    *curses lack of hovertext on iGadgets*

  69. You mean . . . Theesss?

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

  71. Don’t drive like my brother, Skippymom. 😀

  72. It’s a real tutu! Check them out on the etsy site linked 🙂

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

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

  75. I was trying to avoid it as i figured i would get so overloadedmwith cute i would faint.

  76. Same here 😦

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

  77. [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]

  78. Oh that is tutu funny!!

  79. victoreia says:

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