Year in Cute 2009: Why Are You Looking at Me Like That?

In 2009, our animal friends didn’t just disapprove — they sneered, snarled, grimaced, glowered, harrumphed and hachhkkthhed.  Behold, a sampling of this year’s charm school dropouts. (Click picture to view original post.)

Has anyone seen my tiger, Hobbes?

THIS JUST IN: Snowboarding Dogs! – UPDATE

[Updated] A cute moment in this year’s Tournament of Roses Parade is a float featuring snowboarding bulldogs.  In this rehearsal video, the pups get some practice:

Update; here’s what the float looked like at the Tournament of Roses Parade, this just in from Priscilla W:

Check out the lil’ haus that brings the pups back up the hill:

Party Animal

Oh man, I really tore it up at the office party this year.  I told my best jokes, and I danced with all the ladies from Accounts Payable (ooooohh yeeeeeaaaah…).

I might have had just a teeny bit too much to drink, though…

Awww, he looks like a little angel when he’s passed out, Alison D.

THIS JUST IN: Knewly Knobbular Knees

Baby New Year showed up a little early at the Niabi Zoo in Illinois, in the form of this wobbly new giraffe born December 27.  The boy, about six feet, 150 pounds, was born a few days earlier than expected, but the little feller is doing just fine, and will greet the public when the zoo reopens next May.  Until then, he’ll bond with Mom, and do lots of fun giraffe-type activities, such as running around, flicking his tail, eating hay, nibbling leaves on trees (well, the shorter trees, anyway), or maybe take up a nice hobby, like stamp collecting, which can be a rewarding way to pass the time during the long winter months, because you also learn the history behind each stamp.  I recall I had a full set of 60′s-era state flag stamps as a boy; sadly, they were lost in a family move, but anyway…

Rule of Cuteness #44: Ears at 9 and 3 o’clock are cute

Sender-inner Amy S. and her cat Sebastian bring us our last new Rule of Cuteness for 2009:  If your ears point at 9 and 3 o’clock, you’re cute.  And if your ears point at 10, 2 and 4 o’clock, it’s time for a brisk, refreshing Dr Pepper!

Mahir: The Early Years

Welcome to my crib!  I kiss you! I like many activates: gurgling, crawling and the smearing strained beets on the flokati rug. Now you will please to making the alteration of the diaper that is much poopy, thankings.

Jenni S., we apologize in advance for the comments below.

Meanwhile, at the Slumber Party…

“Oh, you guys are totally going to freak when you hear this, but Hannah told me she overheard Margot telling Phoebe that her brother Nick said that Zachary is like totally in love with Mary Ellen Blopchik who works down at the DQ…”

Best. Sleepover. Ever, Anita C.

And It’s Called a “Doughnut,” You Say?

…and yet, if I understand you correctly, it is in fact a baked product, and not a nut at all!  Most intriguing!  And the colorful objects scattered randomly about one side; these are the — what did you call them? — “sprinkles”?   Fascinating!

It’s a world of wonder, Ann S.
