My Shadow Has a Shadow

It even does what I do, and its shadow does what my shadow does! So does that mean my shadow shadows my shadow, or does my shadow’s shadow shadows my shadow? Whoa, it’s too late in the evening for this.

Melina Knows Her Rules!

The Rules Of Cuteness were established for a reason- to provide the definitive guideline to what IS, and what ISN’T….cute. So Melina in Singapore got to thinking, and fired off this email that pretty well states what the Rules are all about.

Dear Cute Overload,

Long time fan of your website! I have an adorable new baby piggy and I think she qualifies to be on your site according to Rules of Cuteness:

Rule #02 Looking helpless is cute.
Rule #14 If an everyday, small item makes you look small, it’s cute.
Rule #19 Dainty paws are cute.

She fits in a tiny coffee cup! And aside from fact i practically live on coffee, my top choice of name for her is Macchiato! [Not ‘Caffeine?’ -Ed.]

Best regards,

Super Kasey The Mighty Maltipoo

…”I have often found him cuddling in the laps of my clients and I have no doubt that he is a much more effective social worker than I am!” -Ferma.


Take Us Out To The Ballgame, Hank!

Tonight’s the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. With that in mind, you might remember back in the spring, we told you about Hank, the little guy who wandered into the Milwaukee Brewers camp, and just….stayed.

Now look- he has his OWN MOBILE HOME.

I Totally Meant To Do This

You cansee the moment of realization that he had dipped one too many toes into the lake… Don’t worry, Scholar was pulled to safety very soon after. #Derp.” -Lauren G.

Penguin Power In The Volunteer State!

Well, well. What little McBeakersons do we have here? Shannon C. wrote us to say “There’s a new fluffy face at the Tennessee Aquarium’s ‘Penguins Rock’ exhibit. He was welcomed to the colony last month.”

Welcome to the world, little friend!!
