Seal of Approval

Yes, it is I — the Seal of Approval, a benevolent spirit offering unconditional approval for every misstep, so your day doesn’t have to suck so much.

Say you overslept this morning? I approve. Burnt the French toast? J’approuve! Got the hiccups during the client presentation? Approve-o-rama!

Accidentally backed into a row of Harley-Davidsons, which toppled like dominoes onto a painter’s ladder, sending a can of Robin’s Egg Blue into a waiter’s tray at Saul Zapata’s Kosher Taqueria, which flung an entire order of sizzling gefilte-fajitas into a gentle arc over traffic and through the sunroof of a passing Mercedes?

Oh, the Hugged Manatee!

This little orphan isn’t a huge manatee, but she will be, thanks to the round-the-clock care of Sea World, which has rescued 23 manatees in 2010. The park hopes to return her to the wild once she’s big enough.

Nice work, Nick G. and everyone at Sea World.

Update: Scroll down for video! Thanks, X-girl!

Life Episode 4: Blorp

This second to last episode of Life, you will see some Blorp-tastic, sticky-eye-balled fish called “Mud Skippers”. They like to walk on land, breathe air, and shovel mud out of their houses with their moufs. They also make excellent mud wrestlers. Enjoy!

Every Mackerel Within a 10-Mile Radius Smelled Like a Coconut

Unknowingly, Sandy set off a sequence of mini-environmental disasters after liberally applying  Hawaiian Tropic Dark Tanning Oil.

Bain de Soleil would’ve turned the water orange, Ellen S.

Hindsight is 20/20

It was the first and last time Irving would agree to give Marge a piggy-back ride.

Good Nat Geo find, Marilyn T.

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.

Have you thought of having thumb-reduction surgery, John P.?

If John Hughes Had Cast the Frog and Lab

You’re ashamed to be seen with me. You’re ashamed to go out with me. You’re ashamed your rich friends won’t approve of me! Well, at least I’m not a sell-out who allows ridiculous people to wear my image on their ties and belts while attending clambakes in Nantucket!  You’re all, “Hi, I’m the Labassador of Americana!” And then you forget what you said because you’re too busy chasing a Kennebunkport squirrel wearing loafers! But you’re right, I should be embarrassed about my camouflage.

Now, if you don’t mind, I’m going to wait here for Duckie to pick me up.

He didn’t become part of “the breakfast club” did he, Brian B.?

EXTREME EYEBALL POWSCHES!

INSANE IN THE MEMBRANE(S)!

According to Sender Inners Lan and Heather T., these are Bubble Eye Goldfish, taken and COEX Aquarium in Seoul, South Korea. “We haven’t named it yet, but I think we’ll leave it you at CuteOverload. You can think up of way cuter names than we ever could. It’s of the same fish, and the 2nd photo is after it ran into something sharp and got deflated. It’s not hurt. It just re-inflates itself after a while.”

GOOD COD!

Toast Ghost Coast-to-Coast!

“My mom was really craving a BLT one night,” says sender-inner Sharon S., “and squirted this mayo man on her toast!”

“She ran upstairs to show me and we laughed SO hard.  We have it frozen in our fridge.”
