We’ll Get There When We Get There!

“You kids stop squirming around! Shermy, I don’t care what Marcie put in your lunchbox, stop hitting her! No, Rupert, we’re not stopping, so you’ll just have to hold it! And what’s that smell—Harold, have you been bathing in milk again?”

Happy Mother’s Day from Josh N. and everyone at Cute Overburden.

THIS JUST IN: ____, ____, and ____

The Bronx Zoo introduced three new lion cubs to the public, reports the Daily News, which is inviting the public to suggest names for the trio until midnight EST tonight. Wouldn’t “Meg,” “Prongs,” and “NTMTOM” be perfect for them (heh, heh)? Suggest a cub name here!

That’s Hamazing!

Get ready to scrape your jaws off the floor, peeps, as we meet YouTube user flybybutterflies, whose hobby involves training seemingly untrainable creatures (hamsters, goldfish, frat boys, etc.) to perform amazing feats of skill.

So, how good is she? This good:

The Ferret Dispenser’s Clogged Again…

It never fails: I put in my dollar, and what happens? When the stupid machine isn’t just taking my money and not giving me any ferret, it sends down two! Sheesh!

Now I have to walk all the way to Hannah P.’s office and get a refund slip.

I Am the Kibble Dancer

Each day, I journey to the ceremonial supper dish in the sacred kitchen, and offer my humble dance to the Kibble Gods. If my dance pleases them, they will send the Benevolent Hand, bringing her life-giving nourishment for the people in my tribe.

All blessings and honor be upon thee, Chloe N.

THIS JUST IN: Lovely Leopard Lads

Last Valentine’s Day, the Smithsonian Institution’s National Zoo welcomed two clouded leopard cubs. Yesterday the Zoo released a new set of “glamour shots” of the two boys. See more squee-worthy shots on their website.

Wakey-Wakey, Eggs and Bakey!

Any book with the phrase “rising body temperatures trigger arousal” is bound to be a page-turner, so when alert reader Arial R. sent us this, noting “I found this in a book at the library and thought it was oh-so-adorable,” that set our tails a-twitchin’.

Let us now examine the sleeping habits of our friend, the squirrel — who is, to put it charitably, not a morning person. (This will be on your final exam, by the way.)

Stays Possum-y — Even in Milk!

Cuteologists, we are presented today with a rarely-seen corollary to Rule of Cuteness #8 (If your furniture doubles as a meal, you’re cute), which states: If your bath doubles as a meal, you’re cute. And you can finish that all by yourself. No, really, I don’t seem to have an appetite for some reason, so you go ahead.

Can I Tell You, I Love This Hand!

Is this a hand, or is this a hand? I’ve hugged a lot of hands in my time, but this hand is the most huggable hand I’ve ever hugged! How can I be so sure, I hear you asking? Because I know hands, my friend, and this — this right here is a hand!

Greetings from Camp

Dear Mom and Dad: I like Camp Wannasnorgleya. It is pretty fun, mostly. Some nights I get scared and wake up clinging to a counselor, but it’s mostly pretty fun.

Once they pry me off, we all have breakfast. The cook is named Mr. Walter. He only knows how to make macaroni and cheese. That’s OK, I like macaroni and cheese.

After breakfast, we do activities. My favorite is Computer Camp. My instructor is Mr. Russell, who knows a whole lot about computers even though a judge said he’s not allowed to use them anymore on account of how smart he is.

After a fun day, we get to have dinner. Tonight, I’m earning my cooking merit badge by helping Mr. Walter make macaroni and cheese.

Then we tell ghost stories around the campfire. Tonight’s story is “The One-Eyed, Peg-Legged Pirate Ghost with a Hook Hand Who Likes to Hide Under Campers’ Beds and Kidnap Them When They’re Sleeping, Especially Baby Baboons.”

You may remember this cutie from an earlier post. Thanks again, Jamin C.!
