Don’t Ask

"Seriously, you don’t wanna know. I’ll spare you the details.  You’re welcome. All I’m gonna say is that whatever genius builds a chalet right in the path of a ski jump can fix his own damn roof."

But I got this lovely little sock at the hospital.  So there's that.

Talk about de agony of de feet, Isobel L.

Rest in Proshness

Dearly befuddled, we are gathered here today to pay our respects to one of the cutest roadside memorials we’ve ever seen: This lovely floral presentation in honor of… a squirrel?!

Perfectly normal from a distance, and then... Wha-HUH?

And not just any squirrel, but true sports nut, with a passion for baseball, basketball and hockey.

Although the referees kept ejecting him for nibbling the puck.

Found in Sacramento by Angela B. Can any other Sacto peeps shed light on this?

[UPDATE: Working from Beth's and Ellen's tips, I think I've located the white building with the tiled roof in the background of shot one, which supports their theory about the address.  Click here to see the building in Google Street View. -- Mike]

The Official Cute Overload Martini

6 parts gin
2 parts vodka
1 part Lillet blanc
Lemon twist Kitty head

Combine liquid ingredients in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice and shake well. Strain into a chillin’ martini glass and garnish with lemon twist kitty head.

A couple of those little onions would be nice, too.

We maded you a martini, Sandy B., but we drinked it.
(Recipe based on the classic James Bond martini. More recipes here.)

It tastes so good when it hits your lips!!!

Another pic from the insane Victoria fires over in Aussie-tralia. Don’t miss this koala we featured earlier, also from a similar scene.

Via DListed:

Look at the koala’s little tongue! And the koala’s paw on the fireman’s hand! The koala is so polite and so thankful! Like a little person! This makes me want to truckjack a Sparklett’s water truck and drive through the ocean to Australia.

Two piglets, extra wrinkles, extra ears, comin’ right up

The Los Angeles Times is reportin’ these Wrinklestilskins (Actually Chinese Meishan pigs) are all the rage at Berlin’s "Tierpark". Apparently, these chubbular wonders are famous for their wrinkles (duh) and loooong ears.

People, a video this redonkulous comes across our Cute Overload desks once in a blue moon. It’s.. well, it’s so bad it’s good. Never mind the translation, you’ll get it.

Without further ado, Toby and Sheila…

You can pull my dead beak off and drag me around any time, Lee Anne.
