    Competitive Stacking? Is this for real? I’ve never heard of, let alone seen, this before. Where have I been all my life? Oh, yeah, I remember now — I’ve been glued to CO.

  2. “Geez lady, I JUST stacked these cups for you FIVE SECONDS AGO.”

    At the very end she’s telling her friend, “It’s annoying, sure. But I also kind of feel sorry for her.”

  3. RERUN


    Still, never get tired of cute stacking Nellie. That nose just begs to be booped!

  4. Also.

    Stacking humans will never, ever, ever, remotely achieve the cuteness factor of stacking otters.

    Sorry kids. Just the way it is.

  5. I’m sure the otters feel that having that woman handing them the cups keeps her mentally stimulated and staves off boredom.

    And seriously, if stacking is the worst/most obsessive thing your kids do, you know those parent are happy to spending too much money on solo cups and shlepping off to tournaments.

  6. Around 0:32: “Lady, you gave them to me WRONG!” >|

  10. Effing cute how the otter actually even hands the cups back to the lady! Awesome!

  11. How can you not LOVE otters!?? Especially sea otters.

  12. That is absolutely, positively what she’s saying!!

  18. Thumbs up!

  19. “…SOOOO big!”

  20. Rafting…I die, every time I see it.

  21. *bangs cup* *bangs cup*
    “f**k it – you take them”

  22. It started out as a simple agility test, you know: “stack these cups so we can see if your motor skills are on par with what we expect from a kid your age.” Then it somehow become… this.
