I’m, ah, working on my school project! Yeah, that’s it, and I just need three more minutes. I’ll be right in for lunch in just four minutes, honest. OK, five minutes.
… and you caught me fair and square, so I shall grant you three wishes! But (gasp!) if I could offer a suggestion (wheeze!), and far be it from me (choke!) to influence what I’m sure (urk!) must be a challenging decision (harrgh!), but you might want your first wish (aaack!) to be for a fish tank, (hurrp!) maybe a bucket of water…

Aunt Leticia drinks all the cooking sherry, Grandpa and Cousin Harold argue politics, Cousin Wendell tells us about the latest cult he just joined, and I get stuck babysitting Aunt Brunhilde’s kids, Rollo and Yappo. That’s it, man; I’m outta here.
Just read this leaflet, Marilyn T. — it’ll totally change your life.
Rule of Cuteness #10-b: If you haven’t grown into your feet yet and/or your mom can impale people, you’re cute. So let’s keep a safe distance and welcome the newest baby white rhino born at Busch Gardens in Tampa, Florida.

The steps of the ninja warrior must be as silent as the morning mist upon the ground. To avoid detection, he must be as still as the midnight air. He must be as fearless as — GAAAHHH NOOOOO GIANT HAND GIANT HAND RUN AWAY!!!
This week, on “Lifestyles of the Prosh and Redonkulous,” we visit Monteigh Hall, home of toenail-clipper heiress Lady Propecia Monteigh Phipps-Gargle.
The stately mansion overlooking the Floofitania River, home to generations of her ancestors, is currently under the exacting watch and care of this dynamic doyenne.
From hosting gala balls, to her designer shoelace empire, to romantic getaways with princes and movie stars, this jet-setter is always on the move and in the know.
But her most important role is doting mother. Here we join Lady Propecia during her weekly visit with daughter Phoebe, cared for by her faithful nanny Hannah.
And finally, we bid farewell to Lady Propecia in her boudoir. “This is where my heart is,” she explains, “where I unwind from the stress of my impossibly perfect life.”
Absolutely fabulous, Melanie H.
Ooh, this looks nice: “Multi-color blanket, perfect for snuggling during those winter nights. 100 percent hand-crocheted with acrylic yarns. Includes genuine dog noses. Fits queen bed. Allow 2 weeks delivery; no shipping to PO boxes.”
Well, that seems like a very nice deal, and … DOG NOSES?!
I don’t even wanna know what’s in the matching throw rugs, Sarah A.
Behold, the power of Teh Qte: When we featured the custom pet portraits of Valerie Leonard, cuteologists swarmed her site — but many wanted a more affordable way to enjoy her creations. And Valerie delivered, with a series of “Animal Ancestor Portraits” note cards, including a set of four holiday cards (sample below). They’re historical — and hysterical, so check ‘em out.
Guys, guys, lookit! I got the big head, with the long nose thingy! Wait, I’ll make the funny noise: Phhheeeaaaauuuuuuummmmpf! Hey, somebody throw me a peanut!
Peanut! Because I’m an elephant, ya get it? Guys? Where’d everybody go?
