Glossary Update Action!


Dogspeak for “Whut the…?” Frequently accompanied by the Canine Tilt and/or wrinkled brow for enhanced effect. Occasionally, animals which are not dogs have been known to have this cute-ism ascribed to them, but this is never appropriate. Dogs just have the face for it, plain & simple. Cats don’t. Fish don’t. Cockatiels? Please.

See right there, in bold type? Fish. Don’t. Baroo.

Until NOW. Behold.

“This little cutie is a Juvenile Hawaiian Spotted Boxfish, photographed off the coast of Kailua-Kona, Hawaii by my sweetie John. He’s an awesome underwater photographer.” -Angie P.

    I can’t get over this little fishy’s cute!

  2. I am very shocked at the level of cuteness that this water dweller has! Shocked AND thankful!

    It’s like Tweety Bird went for a dip in the ocean!

    If they’d put this one in Lilo and Stitch, people would’ve accused Disney of making up a fish. It practically has eyelashes to bad, look at it!

    @pamleblanc – Yes, that’s who it reminded me of! Couldn’t place it. That charming quizzical look, shades of indigo, and transparent fins, can’t get over it!
