THIS JUST IN: An Epic Baroo

Boys and Girls! Your Glossary word for today is ‘Baroo.’

BAROO [BAH-ROO] (noun) (sound effect) A common animal look expressing: “Whut the…?” Frequently accompanied by a head tilt and/or wrinkled brow.

That’s the lesson for today, Teresa H.

Tough Fluff

Gah head, make an “I love shredding chicken” joke. I dare you.

Say, didn’t he play Bull on “Night Court”, Sara K.?

Secrets of the Aristocracy

In the court of the Borgias during the Renaissance, intrigue and murder were daily facts of courtly life — especially when it was Lucrezia’s turn to cook the lasagna.

But employing a food taster, however necessary, was considered an insult to the host. So clever courtiers concealed a “dinner hamster” in their ermine robes.

Thus equipped, a survival-oriented dinner guest would distract the host with a witty anecdote about the peasantry while lowering small amounts of food for testing.

Liquid Courage Makes Him Sleepy

Hey y’all, Cowboy Drumsticks McLongbody here, and I reckon y’all here to see me wrangle some o’ them wild horses and dangerous bulls! Well, I’ll be right ready to go just as soon as I top off this shot of Jim Bea – zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Can you find cowboy boots that are actually cowboy anklets, Amy L.?

“Holy Beejebus, Aunt Edna’s Scary!”

All it took was a little humidity and Aunt Edna transformed into an unrecognizable beast – one that poor little Sally would never forget.

Why so mysterious, Anonymous?

Her Little Helper was a Bit of an Alarmist

Whoa lady, if you’re about to do what I think you’re about to do, then I can tell you with complete certainty that things will never be the same. You’re about to ruin everything, and I’m sorry, but I absolutely cannot allow you to put that wooden cutting board through the dishwasher.

Another Day, Another Motopup

Perhaps inspired by our recent NYC two-for-one sighting, Jessica S. writes: “I snapped these pictures when my friends and I were lost, driving around in San Francisco. Seeing this guy in the next lane made missing our exit totally worth it!”

Left Coast cuteologists hoping for a return may want to stake out this intersection.

Sneak-a-peek at Future Theo

We’ve been running the Cute Overload Supercomputing Center’s “Super Cuteputer”, based in Japan (natch), overload in an attempt to visualize Theo in his new life. Normally, dedicated 24/7 to finding the scientifically cutest content in the universe, we’ve reallocated 1,075 Snorgaflops to creating this rendering of Theo in his new job.

As you can see, there was a major problem. The computer mistakenly rendered Theo in a Private’s uniform, when he’ll actually be a Specialist.

Photo credit (we think) goes to SugarBush Squirrel, who is all kinds of patriotic.

What’s Your Front-door Personality?

In the online era, a knock at the front door can be an unusual event, and how we respond to it reveals our personality. Which of these common types are you?

Outgoing: You fling the door open with a hearty “howdy, neighbor!” Not even the sight of religious pamphlets or Amway samples can dim your welcoming mood.

Reserved: You’ll crack the door open a little bit, but leave it on the chain, ready to make a hasty retreat at the first sign of magazine subscription forms.

Withdrawn: You peek only through the peephole, speak only through the intercom, and haven’t been out in direct sunlight since 1998.

Knock-knock, Amelia B.

My Little (mini!) Pony

My Little Pony, My Little Pony
All in a twinkling spring is here
My Little Pony, My Little Pony
When did all the leaves and grass appear?

(Actual lyrics, I couldn’t make that crap up) But seriously Folks, get a load of this awesomeness:

The awesomely cool JoAnne @ Pacific Pintos Minature Horse Farm does it again. Don’t miss the Mare Cam! And if you’re really brave, the BIRTH of the mini pony above!
