#TBT, August 14, 2009: “What are ‘Tocks’?!”

Many of you write us and ask the infernal question;

Q: “What are ‘tocks?”

A: Round, blobbular anatomical areas at the end of an animule. Like this!


There must be another name for them, Yeijin S.



  1. Sally Decker says:

    Fat little hamster bum!

  2. Guess what?


  3. Hammi is probably thinking “this is NOT my best side!” Not so fast little hammy….

  4. I always called that the tail 😉

  5. This is a fine specimen of tockage, fat, furry and adorbs. It also kinda looks like a grown miniture panda.

  6. Holy moly, that is just about all I can handle right now! They don’t call this “Cute Overload” for nothing. 🙂

  7. Emmberrann says:

    You’re sure that’s a hammie, didn’t know that hammies come with foot floofage.

  8. LunaChickFringe says:

    I thought it was babeh bunneh tockage.

  9. Yes, I’m with some of the others: I need to see the non-tock end of that animuhl to confirm its genus / species because I’ve known me some hams in my life, oh yes, and none so fluffy a’foot.

  10. I think it’s a wee Russian hamster. They have leetle furred feets and tiny white tufty tails. Golden hamsters are much sweeter-tempered, but they have the nekkid feet and tails, which are slightly less cute.

    This little fella/fellaress is particularly floofy, though.
