Live From the 2009 Hide-and-Seek Semifinals

… and as we enter day 27, it looks like little Rollo Grubspackle continues to outsmart the rest of the Gorilla team…

Gets 'em every year, heh, heh, heh...

“Kittens, Inspired by Kittens”

Don’t ask what the title of this movie means.

Just watch. The verbal captions of a Kitten photo book by a six year old.

Via BoingBoing.

Listen Kid, here’s the plan…

"You wheel me over to where the parents are. I’ll distract them with my Tonka truck of adorableness. YOU steal the cookies for us and I’ll meet you back here.

Deal?"

"Deal!"

Revenge Is a Dish Best Served With Puréed Squash and a Teething Biscuit

"So, you were going to pan-fry me in butter, were you?  Well, let’s see how you taste with some mashed ‘nanas, washed down with a sippy cup full of Juicy Juice, fuzzball!"

Gotta catch me first, Mister Can't-Roll-Over-Yet!

I see he’s already started on the tail, Alison G.

Gibbon Pin Up!

Those elongated arms!

That look in your close-together eyes!

YOUR PROVOCATIVE POSE OMG

Kathryn S. saw this gibbon monkeh striking a pose at the Lincoln Park Zoo. Pure redonkulousness.

Legends of Folk Music, Part Six

From their 1958 debut at the Nosepick Hollow Folk Festival, The Happenin’ Hoedown Hipsters kept audiences’ toes a’tapping with a crowd-pleasing mix of folk standards tinged with modern jazz influences. The 1962-65 lineup, pictured here, included Farquard Mandlebroot, lead beagle and vocals; Stanley Burbleson, coyote and harmonica; Roger "Biff" Burbleson, rhythm beagle and vocals; and Doris McGinty, bass mutt.

THANK YOU, BALTIMORE!

An’a one, an’a two, Anna L.

The Year In Cute: Chill!

Yes, 2008 was a nerve-wracking year. But time after time, the stars of Cute Overload taught us that life works best when you just lie back and relax.  So step away from the computer for a while…

You don't REALLY need to check e-mail every 2.63 minutes, do you?

…maybe grab a bite to eat…

Mmmm, Puppy Chow -- My favorarlghgfthraghthphfthh (zzzzzzzzzzzzz)

…and just sit back and enjoy the ride.

Stewardess?  Don't wake me up until we land, mmmkay?

See? You’re feeling relaxed already. There is so much we can learn from Teh Qte. [Yoda voice]

♫ Lulabye, and good night... ♫

Just ask RPHilli, Lindsay J., Courtney, and Scarlette R.—they’ll tell ya.

Decisions, Decisions…

("Let me think… Pan-fried in butter, with shallots and garlic?  No, I need to watch the cholesterol… Grilled, perhaps, with a lemon, pepper and herb rubbing?  Mmm, probably too stringy for that… Well, there’s always the crock-pot…")

Yes, folks, it's a baby. Remain calm, breathe normally ...

You didn’t see this post, Dan K. It never happened.

Helper Mini-horses, parrots and monkehs

Got agoraphobia? Maybe you need a helper monkeh!

Got bi-polar? Maybe you need a calming, talking parrot!

Got blindness? A teeny guide horse may be for you!
