The Fuzzy Little Caterpillar*

This cheerful caterpillar* is a blurry sight to see
Presented through the miracle of pin-point photography.
And though her torso’s tentative, she really doesn’t mind,
She’s clear on where she’s headed, fuzzy on what’s left behind.

Yee-up, I Remember the Rains of ’42…

Sheriff Slimetrail comes a-runnin’ down the road, must’a been doin’ a mile an hour easy, tellin’ us to get to high ground. So I crawl on top of the grain silo, and Lucille gets on top of the outhouse, and we just wait it out singing old love songs…

That’s Odd, I Don’t Smell Anything…

(Wow, I must have a cold or something, because I am just not picking up any nectar on this flower at all. Although I am getting a faint hint of deodorant…)

Think Flying Hamsters Are Just a CO “Thing”?

Well maybe this fuzzy flyer here wants to change all that. All he needs is a cute pair of pants!

What’s next? Flying pink poodles? (oooh Meg, take note.)

“Hi Cute Team, I thought I’d seen it all. But then I found this little winged jellybean with bright yellow floof! (I’m seeing kind of a cat face thing. You?) And its name is Squeaking Silk Moth! They actually make little “squeek” sounds if you touch ’em. Help me decide – cute, weird, or both? Squeek and thanks!” -Kathleen C.

Hey-Yup! Double Time!

Atten-SHUN! Now listen up, private, and listen good! When I say you’re going on a march with full pack, I mean today, not next week! So cut the dawdling and get moving! What are you, a snail or something?

Come With Me if You Want to Salsa

My name is Don Arachno, I’m the king of latin samba,
The ladies see me dancing, and they’re shrieking ¡ay caramba!
Alas, I am but robot, and must seek upon my honor
One special dancing partner by the name of Sarah Connor

Please tell me that thing on the front dispenses tequila, Wendy M.

I’m a Little Teapot, Trick or Treat…

Now I just need some cups — peanut butter cups, if you got’em!

I Seem To Have Lost My Slazenger #5

I sliced it over here by the cart path. Can I take a mulligan?


“I was playing golf with my dad and noticed some serious ‘Pillar action going on underfoot as we approached the 8th hole. I knelt down for a closeup and once he got near to the camera, the little guy busted out a quick dance move.” -Dave K.

What Really Happened

He was so brave. That’s what I remember most. We were walking home from the Rotary potluck, just Herbert and I, and the moon was full and the stars were twinkling and the night seemed to be made just for us.

And then out of nowhere, there was the cat. Its jaws were enormous and its gigantic paw almost blotted out the moon. I couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, and Herbert, not even a thought for himself, stands between us and tells me to get to safety. As I ran, he called out to me, “Tell the children… I love them.”

Anyway, that’s how we lost your father. I did not eat him after our third date, and I have no idea how that ugly rumor got started. Now finish your dinner.


Still another of Japan’s most retweeted cat pictures.
