Just Looking for a Silver Lining, Here…

Look, I’m cool with the whole cone thing. Medically necessary, keeps me disciplined, yadda yadda — I get it. I’m just saying, as long as I have to wear this, why not pour a little kibble in here? That too much to ask?

Would it kill ya, Joshua R.?

Namaste! Check out this pug’s totally-a-yoga-pose-and-not-just-yawning!

What Enchantment Is This?

As I gazed upon the mysterious portal, a lone figure resolved itself before my astonished eyes. It was I, playing with… string! Lustrous, silken string, like none I had ever seen before (as least not that I can remember)! It was my own future I saw, conjured by some dark magic to bewitch and ensnare me. And though I knew this was not for mortals to behold, I wanted — nay, needed — to see more… more…

And Now, Everybody’s Grandpa

“I cannot believe the stupid, liberal, nanny-state garbage that passes for so-called ‘news’ these days! ‘Pick up after your pets’?! When I was a boy, we picked up after ourselves! I can see I’ll have to write another harshly-worded letter to the editor!”

“This is our cute little Leroy. Obviously has something to protest against here,” says Candy H.

Pick a Little, Talk a Little

… and that’s when Marcie, she’s Marge and Stanley’s eldest, just stands up in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner and declares that she and her boyfriend are going backpacking across Europe, and Stanley’s face went just beet red…

Oh, but listen to me, nattering on, not letting you get a word in edgewise…

They looked real to us at first too, Sue V.

Dreamflight Lullaby

Now shut your wee eyes, lay down your tired head
And dream fluffy dreams in your pink little bed
Soon you will fly in the sky without fears
The clouds at your feet and the wind in your ears

Over oceans you’ll skim; over mountains you’ll soar
But remember, it’s only a dream, nothing more
And when you awaken, you’ll marvel because it
All seemed so real, but it wasn’t — or was it?

Darin & Brooke say: “Viva is a Papillon-Poodle-Miki mix. She sleeps like this all the time (not really). She’s just tired from looking at the weirdos on Cute Overload all day.” Hey! We resembled that remark!

And Don’t Come Back!

That’s right!

Don’t make us come down there and whip your butt! [shiver]

True-Life Tales of Cuteness!

Ann W. testifies: “My friends and I went camping at The Shades State Park in Indiana. During our four-hour hike through the Sugar Creek Ravine, we came to the river. So we sat and rested. As my friend Jamie sat on a rock, she set down her water-proof case on adjacent rocks.

“Moments later, a tiny McToaderson hopped under her case and made it his own cave! The McToaderson was so grateful for her shade providing, he hopped onto her hand so he could say hello! And yes, we squealed and sat in awe of his bleeneyness. We then put him in a shade spot near the water and continued on our hike. Good-bye, Mr. McToaderson!”



Whooooooo Wants Lunch?

It’s bento long since we’ve had some bento, so let’s look at some too-cute-to-eat creations by “Gamene,” who showcases her work on Flickr and her blog Bento Zen.

How Now, Dow?

Well, if I’m going to ride this roller-coaster market, I’d better do some reading…
