Oh, So U Want A Desert Rain Frog Ring Tone, Eh?

[This one is an Encore Presentaysh from early 2013. However, Cuteporter Amanda V. wrote in and insisted we do the right thing and run it again. And so we shall. Guaranteed to start the work week off on the right note. -Ed.]

“I have been in love with Mr. Blorpy the Cape Rain Frog since you guys posted him back in 2009, but I had NO IDEA that there were other flavors of Rain Frogs until yesterday when a friend sent me this video of a DESERT Rain Frog and my head positively exploded. The Blorp and Squee are unbounded. Do what is right and share this with the world.”

You got it!

As a new bonus, we’ve also included a handy ringtone for your phone. Click it to preview, or right click on this link to save (or control-click for Mac).

(Oh, you’d like a FIVE MINUTE LOOP of this? Sure, sure.)

“Floating Rock Sausage?”

Floating-rock-sausageCuteporter Dan H. checked in earlier today from The Great White North, eh? “We snapped a pic of an adorable Harbour Seal (above) on one of our whale watching tours here in Victoria BC Canada. This one we call the ‘Floating Rock Sausage.'”

~and~

“Here’s one more of this fun guy laying in a beautiful bed of seaweed, loving life. More pix here.”

C.O. Classifieds: Panda Caretaker WANTED

Panda Sanctuary and Research Center desires someone to snorgle Pandas. Free room and board. Salary 32K/200,000 yuan/yr. Free SUV to drive. Must be at least 22 and in good physical shape. Must love pandas. Oh yes, position is in China.

We’re not kidding, guys. NBC News says “China’s Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in Ya’an, Sichuan province just announced a competition for a one-year job as a “Panda Caretaker.” Eight runners-up win a three-day trip to panda-watch at the reserve. China Daily helpfully notes, “Your work has only one mission: spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows.”

Sorrows? With a fleet of Pandas? Impossible.

I’m in. Who’s with me? The application is somewhere on this site.

Thanks to The Furrtographer for the teep.

You Can’t Handle This Much Blorp!

Wow, Is That A Lot O’ Pandas, Or What?

It really isn’t.

Artist Paulo Grangeon worked with the World Wildlife Fund and others to create 1,600 papier-mâché Pandas to raise global awareness..

Raccoon Chubbular Somersault ACTION!

Rollin’ Rollin’ Rollin,’ keep the Blorp a-rollin’!

Finnish Blorp Video (+ Authentic Translayshe Action!)

Here at C.O., we know Blorp when we see it. This video is classic Blorp. It’s also from Finland, and none of us speak Finnish. Using Google Translayshe is a cop-out, so Cuteporter Tiina M. provided the helpful deets.

“The Saimaa Ringed Seal is an ultra rare and endangered species of fresh water seal that only lives in Lake Saimaa in Finland. In the spring seal pups play and swim close to their mothers. As summer comes nearer pups keep growing and start making longer swimming trips. Pups may swim to areas which have fishing nets and fish traps that are of wrong shape and are dangerous to seals. The Finnish Association for Nature Conservation is working for wider restrictions in fishing. Let not a single seal pup die in fishing nets!”

Amen to THAT. Now, on with The Blorp. (Note the underwater nap attack at 1:25, please.)

“I love your site – I’ve visited it every day for many years already! Best wishes!”
