Save me Mr. Gershwin!

And they’re comin’ to get me
Pups are jumpin’
At my cam’ra held high

Oh your teeth are fine
Keep ’em clear of my Canon
This candid CutePortering
Dumps me on my behiiiiiind

Ehhh, who am I kidding; I’d do this all day.  Thanks to Lucy, Ricky, and my lovely neighbors across the street.

Curse of Monkula

Once again, as he has done for centuries, the cursed vampire rises from his grave to feast.  Mad with hunger, the wretched fiend spies his next victim, an unsuspecting villager.  He waits in the shadows; his prey draws nearer… and then, with inhuman speed, the monster strikes!

(Jerry Lewis voice) Oy, Mr. Nice Vampire, stop with the biting on my tender young neck that is painful to me, please maybe you could?

More monkeyshines at the Daily Mail.

Oh Great and Terrible Monkey God…

… who nourishes our forest with gentle life-giving rains,
… who blesses us with interesting feet that can grab things,
… who makes heavy the trees with delicious fruits that are very hard to open,
… who causes the theme from “The Benny Hill Show” to reverberate inside our tiny heads whenever we frolic and scamper through the treetops,

… all glory and pudding be upon thee, forever and ever, aaaaaaaa-monnnnk…

Guess what?  MONKEY BUTT!

(OK, this is an ape, not a monkey, but we like the sound of “monkey butt,” so deal.)

Wait, why am I posting this again?

OMG He’s SO CUTE (the monkeh, People, the monkeh!)


Jamin C. says: “This is me with my baby baboon Majoca at our exploration camp in eastern Angola (west Africa). Her mom was killed so I adopted her!” Very sweet, Jamin. ;)

He Followed Me Home, Can I Keep Him?

Pleeeeeease, Mom?  I promise I’ll take care of him, and clean up after him, and help him with his geography homework, and buy him video games, and get him into good schools, and teach him to drive, and start a trust fund for college, and…

Excellent new CATegory, Monica and Monica’s boyfriend who had the idea in the first place

I Got’cher Thumbs-up Right Here

By now, you’ve probably noticed a new “thumbs up/thumbs down” rating system for comments.  Even though we at CuteLabs thrive on the cutting edge of Cuteology, we know that some have had trouble adjusting to the change.  We understand, and we listen — because we care.

And like all new ideas, it could have been worse.  We could have gone with our first concept…

Friday Haiku Limerick

There once were inseparable pals
One monkey and one little gal
They took strolls and made tea,
Were friendly as could be,
Now both species have evolved morale

One toddler and one chimpanzee:
She showed him just how to pour tea.
He would not have maligned her,
But he had to remind her
“Hey kid, you’re descended from me!”

Said the Girl
Some things can not be
I’m afraid you can’t marry me
Your wrinkled and hairy
With manners quite lairy
besides you belong in a tree.
-Honorable Glad

Hey! I come here to Cute Overload
For a kitten or blorpable toad
Orangs should be wild
Not at tea with a child
I will nuff now until I explode!
-Trabb’s Boy

This orangutan’s trying my patience.
I’m tired of his poor imitations
Of the way that I crawl
And my dear little doll,
And I abhor how he wastes my libations!

Mr. Mucky McNufferson huffs
His bellicose cheek outward puffs
He raises his ire
With indignant fire
And says to the comments e-NUFF!

“I come to this site for the cute
Like a marmie asleep in a boot
Not a chimp with a kid,
Or, the heavens forbid,
The two of them sharing a snoot!”
