Time to Build an Ark! Ark! Ark!

(riiing, riiing) Hello, City Water. Yes, maam we are aware of the problem. There was a broken water pipe. One of our main seals burst.

Ant, you’re going to be swamped all day.

  2. BLORP, definition of

  3. Mary (the first) says:

    Yep. That’s supreme blorpiness, for sure!

  4. gail pierson (bunny) says:

    Am I an apple or pear shape? 🙂 Adorable cuteness!

  5. It’s all an optical illusion, the water adds 50 pounds!
    Really! I’m actually super model thin!

  6. BLORP is the exact noise that little guy made when he jumped into the water head first. I can hear it now!

  7. Spherical blorp.

    Beep on tha snoutie-poo !!!

    (hee: “main seals burst” = 🙂 )

  9. … but they told me eating fish would melt off those pounds!

  10. Blorpy is ready for some water aerobics!

  11. Oceanview says:

    OK, this one gets my seal of approval.

  12. It looks like a buoy.

    I miss my weebles.

  14. flutterby says:

    LOL Pyrit!! Actually, he looks like Bob to me….

  15. But is she standing on tippytoes yet?

  16. That is the most adorable blorp I’ve ever seen! (At least today.)

  17. He looks like the Raddish (Or was it Turnip) spirit from Spirited Away!

  18. Queen of Dork says:

    I’m still having the problem where I can’t comment unless I reply to somebody else. So anyway, I’d just like to say:

    Blorp. (gulpness). Blorp. Bleerp. burp. (excuse me) Bllooorp. Blerp! Blorp. Blorp. Blerp. (Bleep!) Blorp. Blargh. Blaurgh! Blorp. Blorp.

    Love the title of this post. 🙂

  20. victoreia says:

    Are we sure that’s not a new type of water buoy?

  21. Jimbeaux says:

    Oh my! I so wanna go swimmin’ with this guy! (Not just because he’s completely adorable, but because he’d make me look thinner by comparison!)

  22. Look ma! I can touch the bottom!

    Hopefully this pic is of the correct “people”:

  25. januaryfarmer says:

    But she has such a pretty face…

  26. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!

  27. At last, someone more rotund than moi!

  28. Isn’t that such a great, proud moment? 🙂

    Caution all vessels! Blorp-berg sighted at 47 degrees north, 125 degrees west.

  31. Mmmmm. Buoyant!

    That was a cute picture. They might be the grandchildren of my Weeble family. Mine were smooth egg shaped made by Romper Room/Hasbro back in the 1960’s. I had a car & camper. I tried linking a photo from a google search but it just isn’t working.

    Consider it Job Security 🙂

  37. Fird Birfle says:

    Well, y’know, I wanted to at least attempt a Noble College Effort, “for tha Gipper”.

    I’m a kid of the Slinky Generashon … these )(&_(*&(*& compooters befuddle me EV’RY time, so I totally unnerstan’ their contrariness to ya !!

  38. Homer Mariner says:

    Aside from the fact that sea lions (not seals) are the ones that make so many barking noises, this guy is supremely blorpular. Let’s keep our Pinnipeds separate from our Otariids. Cute and science together is an unbeatable combo!

  39. Lerrinus says:

    Egg shaped! Extra cute! 😀

  40. I snort every time I come across this picture… I think this alone would have had me following this blog. Such squishiness!

  41. All I have to say is: Blooooooooorp

  42. What you get when you blow a seal.

    Pipe down, lady, I’m drinkin’ as fast as I can!
