How To Play

  • Trivia contest: NTMTOM lobs you softballs as usual

One winner will be chosen randomly each day, with Friday’s grand prize winner chosen from all eligible entries, so play every day for your best chance to win!

Awfully important-sounding official rules with lots of impressive legal words like “eligible” and “Zamboni”

  • Rule two: One entry per e-mail address, please.
  • Rule three: One winning entry will be selected at random from eligible entries in that day’s contest.
  • Rule four: Grand prize winner will be selected at random from all eligible entries.
  • Rule five: Contest open to all except employees of CuteLabs, 505 Games, their immediate families, robots over twelve feet tall, and that jerk down at the ice cream parlor who won’t give us extra sprinkles even though we ask very nicely.
  • Rule six: There is no rule six.
  • Rule seven: Winners will be selected by NTMTOM, using a top-secret method involving a Ouija board, sixteen left-handed hamsters, and a Zamboni (see, I told you).

People, please check out these fluffy little Tribble-like dudes. The Honduran White Bat! According to Wikipedia, Honduran White Bats have snow-white fur and a yellow nose and ears. These bats are tiny, only 37-47 mm long. They live in leaf tents in the rainforest, natch. I’d never seen these creatures before alert Cuteporter Terri H. informed us.
