In Her Defense, She First Tried Using a Chalkboard But Ended Up With Goosebumps

Listen lady, I’m all for learning how to read, but there has to be a better way than having me grip the beejesus out of Tango and Cash here.

Hope you’re wearing some kind of steel mesh suit under there, Suzanne D.

Slooow-Mooo Maaa-ruuu

Maru jumps! Maru yawns! Maru shakes water off after a bath! All in slow-motion! And the finale you’ll literally wait for—a kees.

Meanwhile, at the Slumber Party…

“Oh, you guys are totally going to freak when you hear this, but Hannah told me she overheard Margot telling Phoebe that her brother Nick said that Zachary is like totally in love with Mary Ellen Blopchik who works down at the DQ…”

Best. Sleepover. Ever, Anita C.

Aunt Edna always makes for an interesting holiday.

Reindeer Understudies

“Yep, that’s us. If one of the reindeer sprains a fetlock and can’t fly, that’s when we move in. Doesn’t happen often, though;  last time I went up was in ’73, and Ralph here doubles for Blitzen at shopping center openings.  That’s about it.”

Who knew Santa was so prepared, Paige?

Merry Marmoset

In the great Cute Overload Christmas Tradition, it’s time for your Annual Marmoset Ear Nom™. Simply wrestle a pygmy Marmoset to the ground and perform a soft-kronche on their ear nubules.

Even if they tilt their heads to the side, they won’t be able to shield their ears forever:

Go on, your furry little morsels await!
