THIS JUST IN: A Dangling Baby Panda

Or rather, this just out, because the San Diego Zoo announced yesterday that Yun Zi, its five-month-old panda cub, makes his public debut today.  Yun Zi, which means “son of cloud,” clowned around for press photographers on Wednesday.  See more pics here, and you can also try to spot him on the zoo’s PandaCam.

And Now It’s Time to Play ‘Pup or Seal?’

And our first contestant is Gravy, whose favorite foods are fish and steak, and whose favorite hobbies include chasing cars and balancing a ball on his nose!

Hmm — Tough call, Megan S.

Year In Cute 2009: Ad Infinitum

Oh sure, sex sells, but in 2009, Madison Avenue caught a serious case of Teh Qte.  Below, we take another look at the cutest ads we featured in the past year.

The Biggest Loser

After six months on the ranch, Bubba the 250-pound Mastiff, was unrecognizable.

Sweatin’ to the Oldies, Monique K-D.

“Mooooon Rivvverrr…!”

“Are you using the whole fist, doc?”

That’s Fletch F. Fletch, Nancy T

No, You Repeat After Me

“Cute Overload is the bestest site on the whole Intertubes EVER!”  Brwaaaaaaaawk!

Ooh, you’re gonna have some dead pixels on that screen, Susan R.

Year In Cute 2009: Owche

When our ani-pal friends get an owie, Cuteologists respond with an outpouring of concern, which sometimes takes the form of uncontrollable giggling.  Below, a sampling of Cute or Sad? moments for 2009 (click pictures to see original posts).

Make Mine a Double

One of the most popular new drinks that the beautiful people enjoyed over the holidays is called the “Scotch Surprise.” It’s very simple, really — see recipe below:

2 jiggers Smirnoff vodka
Dash of Macallan Scotch whisky
Shake well and strain into glass
Garnish with herbs
Enjoy while kitteh pounces on you from top of cupboard.

Will you be my designated driver, Heather H.?

Thank You For Flying Air Lamb

We’ll be sproinging at an altitude of approximately three feet. Please fasten your seatbelts, and note that the captain has turned on the “no bleating” sign.

And if you look over to your right, you may be able to see a C.O.X.C.U…

Buh-bye now, Melissa W.

His Real Name is Gilbert…

But he just doesn’t feel like a Gilbert.

He seems more like a Colonel.

No? Fine, we aim to please. He does have a heavy authoritative quality to him, so might we suggest Taft?

If Gilbert wants fame, he needs to piggyback onto a bigger name, Jake Z.

See more Gilbert here, here, here, here, and oh yes, here.
