Introducing…Rule Of Cuteness #60!

florence.wetGina S. says: “I have reviewed the ROCs and find there is nary a word about bath-time, excessive hygiene, nor even re: wet animals/general wetness, bath-induced or other. Therefore, in honor of my new grand-dog Florence, I would like to recommend the following:

“If bath-time reduces your total body matter by up to 50%, that’s cute.”

Consider it DONE! BEFORE, above. AFTER, below. “Photos of Florence by her new parents, my son and his GF. Florence is a rescue Llasa-Poo. She received a bath on Day One. Just because. Florence will undoubtedly get her social media sites in order soon — as soon as g-ma gets the dresses, sweateuws (sp? couldn’t find in Glossary*!) and Halloween costume(s) ready.”

KK Raises Its Halloween Game In The Big J

3img03No offense to our perennial fave Mister Donut, but Mr. Krispy Kreme has flat out FLOORED IT for Halloween in The Big J. (At this point, we should mention that the blog I’ll Make It Myself and the Twitter account for Things From Japan were the inspiration for this post.)

Not sure what’s going on here, but as with all Big J posts, that hardly matters.

Did someone say videos? Oh yes. Here are the first four in a series- they have nine total. Who doesn’t like dancing Pumpkin and Frankenstein donuts?




Hellllllll-o Down There!

[They SAID if I keep digging I’ll see China! I don’t know who or what that is, but I’m willing to try!]

#Tocktober: “Hummy ‘Tocks!”

featheres“Before the month is out I thought you might like to post some Fuzzy Hummy ‘Tocks! These belong to a Cute little Anna’s Hummingbird (we call her him Esmerelda Ernesto) that was kind enough to pose for some photos a while back while molting.” -Simon & Sarah in the SF Bay Area.


#Tocktober: Frodo

IMG_4630Anybody up for some ‘Tocks? Thought so. Thanks, Julie O.: “This is Frodo, my grand-doggie, of previous C.O. fame demonstrating his Skipper skills, found here. The first picture (above) prominently displays Frodo’s Spectacular ‘Tocks AND an amazing Side-Eye. And then this one below shows Lulu trying to divert Frodo’s attention before snatching his ball. ‘Hey, look over there, Frodo – the evil fence-running squirrel!'”


THIS JUST IN: Maru And Hana Won’t Get Fooled Again

In an unprecedented SECOND video this week, Mugumogu shows us that THIS time around, The Dynamic Duo ain’t fallin’ for the same ol’ gag.

Kittehs -N- Piggehs, O My

If this isn’t a Cute Combo, I don’t know WHAT is. Let the snorgling begin!

Looooo-Cee! I’m Hoooome!

IMG_0015Actually- Ricky Ricardo (and Fred Mertz for that matter) are nowhere to be found on this small lake in Quackerville, CA.

This Bebeh Deer Would Love To Have A Ball!

But it doesn’t look like he/she knows how!

Fresh From The Big J….

Gotta admit, “Neko Atsume” has flown under the Big J radar as far as I’m concerned. It seems that this is a cat game you play on your mobile phone. OK, I get it. And since Japan is obsessed with cats, naturally you have to make…air fresheners with the kitteh on them. Sure, why not?

UPDATE 2:30pm PT: For those who are searching for these on the iTunes App Store, maybe this will help.


Four distinct scents for you: “Gentle Jasmine, Cozy Berry, Relaxing Floral, and Refreshing Shampoo.”

Peel off the sticky decal and put them anywhere that needs a little “freshening.”

The car dashboard, for example.

Or at work.

The kitteh rotates around the freshener, too.

(Andrew Y. saw it on RN24. If you wanna gaze at some fantastic Big J advertising, here they are.)
