Mom and Bebeh Killdear hanging out in a TEXTBOOK display of Rule Of Cuteness #07: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute. Let’s tag ‘em with MATCHINGKS, too.

More Hummingbirds, If You Please!

From The C.O. Mailbag:

“Dear C.O., I love Cute Overload, but I have noticed that you don’t post enough hummingbirds. Hummingbirds conform to many Rules Of Cuteness, namely: #14: If an everyday, small item makes you look small, it’s cute. But they also have peeping tongues and disapproving looks! And they nest in the funniest places. I am sending you some photos from this slideshow at the Cornell Labs of Ornithology. These aren’t mine, so I can’t give permission, but here is a link to the slideshow.” -Anna S.

She adds, “These pictures are the most common mood…LEAVE ME ALONE, I know I’m Cute.”

Poll: Are Creepy Crawlies Cute?

I’ll draw the line at Spiders (except for the ones who do YMCA)- but take a look at these fellows. Sender-Inner Anne S. says, “Finally, there’s proof! Baby snails are cute too! (And start out really really really tiny. It’s surprising they survive at all with this teeny weeny size and their rather obvious lack of speed.”)

What do you think? Cute, or Creepy? Take the Poll!

ResQte Of The Week: Toy Dog

There are toy dogs, like Gund™ and Steiff™…and then, there’s THE Toy Dog. “I thought this might interest you. We found this little fellow while travelling in Vietnam. The owners thought he would not survive because he was so tiny and weak, but he made it….he’s still tiny though! Due to a birth defect, he’s got stiff legs and a funny walk. Hence the name ‘Toy Dog.'” -David M.

Let There Be KODIE
