Friday Haiku: Hug

When you need a hug
Like this bebeh Koala
You go and get it

  1. I need to improve
    My koality of life
    Come on bear, hug me

  2. And just like that you become a Cute Man of CO.

  3. Stinky-Inky says:

    How do you not pet him? Are you not supposed to koalas? C’mon how do you not pet that cuteness?

  4. Alice Shortcake says:

    I think we should be able to give koalas a double ration of hugs because we aren’t allowed to hug quokkas.

  5. Fleurdamour says:

    Ko-Pro camera

  6. The Original Jane says:

    Okay gotta give that cameraman props. He kept the koala in frame even holding the camera above his head.

  7. “Hug me hug me hug me hug me hug me…” How was the cameraman able to restrain himself?? 🙂

  8. I’ve got you under my skin
    Oh, I’ve got you
    Deep in the heart of me

  9. fkaWaldenPond says:

    Ohhh, nicely done Oakley! (Go Jays, Go!)

  10. I love how he’s trying so hard to do the right thing and not interact with the wildlife, and the koala is like “No, I really want a hug!”

  11. Jenny Islander says:

    Bebeh koalas seem to think that hoomins are just big koalas or possibly friendly trees. I saw on PBS the other night how an orphaned koala found by the roadside zoomed straight up the hoomin who stopped to pick him up. At the wildlife rehab center, he spent all his time hanging on to either a hoomin or a stuffie until he got to be a big boy.

  12. I do need a hug
    Vicarious koala
    Will just have to do

  13. I would hug him and never let go.

  14. Well, that’s how I feel about bearded men too.
