People, if you’ve ever been to Africa, you’ve seen Dik-Diks running around, exuding cuteness of dangerous, deadleh levels. They’re part mini-deer, part partridge, all prosh. THEY GET THEIR NAME FROM THE SOUND THEY MAKE RUNNING FOR COVER OMG!

This lil’ Dude was born at the Chester Zoo recently:

Check this, he’s all: “le snorf”

It’s Squirrel Appreciation Day!

Did you know today is Squirrel Appreciation Day?  Thank goodness we have the Los Angeles Times to tell us about these things!  Anyway, here’s a squirrel you’re sure to appreciate:

Meow You See Us; Meow You Don’t

Don’t…move…an…inch. If we use our secret powers of camouflage, we’ll seamlessly blend into the tiles, and they’ll never know we were here.

Wonder Twins – activate, Kelsey S.

Welcome to my Boudoir

Welcome, daah-leenk, to my private hideaway. Thees international jet-set hamster life, eet ees so stressful. My spirit requires the—how you say—”me time,” yes?

Ah, the servants have prepared our luncheon: Tomato Bisque with Basil, and Prosciutto-Wrapped Cantaloupe. Bon appétit!

Who’s your decorator, Laurel E.?

Is This Thing On?

Hey, is that a camera?  Am I on TV?   Hey, Aunt Louise, I’m on TV!

But wait — there’s even more Curious George action at the National Geographic site, including the thrilling “poking the lens with a stick” sequence!  Thanks as always to MarilynT.!

The Adventures of Ren & Ariel

While it may not have been verbally expressed, they knew it was prohibited; and so they waited until everyone else was hibernating. And when the curious – yet easily fooled – motorists passed, they feigned those dull stares usually reserved for the similarly-minded moronic salmon.

But once the grounds of Yellowstone cleared, they cranked them some Loggins and they freaking DANCED.

My, my, Marilyn T: You’ve been workin’ so hard, and punching that card. Eight hours, for what? Cute Overload’s whatchu got.

Survival of the Cutest?

According to a study cited in Science Daily, dog breeding mimics the laws of natural selection — and it favors Teh Qte.  Dogs bred for companionship show wider variation than all other breeds.  Said a researcher, “Domestic dogs are boldly going where no self respecting carnivore ever has gone before.”

A Quick Fire Challenge Has Never Been So Adorable

She was an unlikely candidate, but they couldn’t deny that she knew her stuff. Before you could blink, she’d find a perfectly ripe tomato and combine it with the freshest mushrooms to create the most delicious dish you’ve ever tasted.

Yes, Colicchio was impressed; little Marinhare-a was a true Top Chef.

I bet she makes a great cannoli, Carolina H.

Amazing Picture of the Day

This photo will force you to do two things, in this order:

1) Softly gasp and mutter “Awesome.”

2) Yawn.

Bunny Brain Balance Book Baffles Buyers

I have no idea what you’re talking about… so here’s a book about a rabbit with a pancake on its head.

From 1999 to 2003, Hironori Akutagawa photographed his rabbit, Oolong, with various objects perched on his conveniently flat head. Now the photos have been compiled in a book titled In Almost Every Picture 8 from KesselKramer Publishing.

We eagerly await the sequel, featuring a bunny with a book about a bunny with objects on its head on its head.

Just what your coffee table’s been yearning for, Kyra M.
