Balloon Lumpfishes!?

Can you imagine having the word "lump" in your name? "Hi, the name’s Marty McLumpersons, nice to meet you." Well meet a member of the  Lumpfish family, People. The Eumicrotremus Pacificus.

Instead of balloons, these guys should be sitting on lil’ individual fish-sized couches.

A sweeeet collection of transparent undersea creatures is on display over at NationalGeographic.com, including this guy, the Roundbelly Cowfish aka Mr. Rule #38! (I am not making that name up)

Everyone needs a lil’ clownfish snorgling now and again, Veronica F. (Who took this at Fraggle Reef in L.A.)

The "Jaw Tooth Blenny fish" (Not to be confused with ‘bleeny’) is a little smiling mo-fo. Get an aquarium full and you’ll never be sad again. Good Times™.

Britta F., that lil’ mouf is hilarious.

Mo’ Bubbles, Beluga Style

Whoa! [Keanu Reeves voice] those whales actually accept scuba tank air into their mouths from a diver, and then blow bubbles with it! THAT’S KRAZEHPANNTS!

Secret beluga behavior revealed!

Amazing photo—these belugas were so comfortable in captivity, they started celebrating Christmas just as if they were out in the sea. Amazingks.

Nod from National Geographic, heard of them?

How tewtelly sweet that National Geographic has a quote from CuteOverload on their site. The quote is in reference to this guy below. Apparently, they liked what we called him… :) See for yourself.

Thanks to all of you who sent this one in. And a special thanks to you, Eddie McBlobbules [head tilt]

Update on the—Ruh-roh!

Babywhatshisname_2This is such a bummer, People. Apparently, the name-a-beluga whale contest over at Shedd aquarium will only accept Inuit/Indian names as contest entries. Last time I checked, neither "Humptyback Fishtybuns", nor "Mr. Splashy von Beluga Whalehouser", NOR "Smiley Q McWrinklesides" were of Inuit origin.

This is a total official rules McBummer, and I should have caught it. I’m sorry! Sure, we could all rally behind "Inungoark" or "Kappianartok", but that just doesn’t have the same "Fishty" ring to it.

Alert reader Lindsay S. suggests "Suppiwok"—it means " Blows air with one’s mouth"  The closest Inuit approximation of "Mr. Pbbbffth-Pbbbffth"

Let’s name this behbeh!
