So What Did You Do For Fun When You Were a Kid, Grandpa?

“… back in those days, we didn’t any of this fancy-lad HD, 3-D, DVD whatzidingle, no sir.  Paid a nickel to take the streetcar down to the Odeon every Friday night.  Only cost a nickel to get in, and a large popcorn, that was another nickel…”

“… and that got you a feature, a newsreel, three cartoons, a travelogue from some island where the women didn’t wear shirts, Gaylord Mercer on the Mighty Wurlitzer, a trapeze act, and a live reenactment of the Battle of Little Big Horn, with horses.”

A Public Service Announcement

It’s a tragic story:  A busy kitchen, a distracted parent, a curious toddler, and a cupboard carelessly left open — the perfect ingredients for a recipe… of addiction! Once a child develops a taste for kitten huffing, he or she is often lost… for life.

That’s why the scientists here at CuteLabs labor ’round the clock to make pets safer, with innovations like the Child-Proof Kitteh™… because we care.

Mahir: The Early Years

Welcome to my crib!  I kiss you! I like many activates: gurgling, crawling and the smearing strained beets on the flokati rug. Now you will please to making the alteration of the diaper that is much poopy, thankings.

Jenni S., we apologize in advance for the comments below.

HEEEY!

Zoo Boise has reported a surprise birf of a cotton-top Tamirin. Apparently, the newborn’s mother was not visibly pregnant, and this little guy was all: “HEEEY! I’m here!” [See exact moment, below]

Merry Marmoset

In the great Cute Overload Christmas Tradition, it’s time for your Annual Marmoset Ear Nom™. Simply wrestle a pygmy Marmoset to the ground and perform a soft-kronche on their ear nubules.

Even if they tilt their heads to the side, they won’t be able to shield their ears forever:

Go on, your furry little morsels await!

Need I Remind You, We Both Have Thumbs

Civilian, please do not touch the animal while I work. I possess a highly skilled craft; you do not. Let my healing hands guide the way to a cure to this terrible problem.

And…Yes, I think I’ve done it. The animal should finally be rid of this very unpleasant case of Singultus.

Dr. McDomineering and patient McPanty might make “Grey’s Anatomy” watchable, Martin I.

Teach your Silver-Leaf Langur well

We’ve just been informed the National Geographic Photo contest has announced their winners… Here’s one of them, courtesy of the fine folks over at Nat Geo. It’s called “Baby Gibbon Gets Schmutz Taken Off Cheek by Mom”

Strained Carrots? My Favorite!

(Man, this is the sweetest babysitting gig ever.  The kid smears the food on his face, and I get to lick it off.  I hope he managed to get some dessert on the other side.)

That’s got to be the cleanest baby in history, Samantha M.

Break Out the Pitchforks and Torches!

Washington, D.C. — Outraged legislators renewed calls for banning human-animal hybrids after researchers at the Frankenstein Institute for Extremely Scary Science announced the creation of a “lambaby.”  According to a spokesperson for an angry mob that stormed the Institute, “arghle grumble blaarphle rhubarb rhubarb!”
