Squirrel Has A Big Head

I was feeling a little less than, you know? I was getting left out of all the squirrel games and I was practically invisible. Then, I saw an ad from Archie McPhee and just like that, I’m bigger than life!



No Way! Way.

Peeps! Is this for realios? Or for playzies?


What in the world, Chief Sister Officer? Sorry NOMTOM, we don’t have a “creepy” tag.

Power to the Peeps

The sixth annual Washington Post Peeps Diorama Contest truly brought out the crowds this year. The winning entry, “OccuPeep D.C.,” showed that just because Peeps are soft and sweet, they can be strong when they stand together. Click the link to see all the creative candy craftiness.

Now a Word From Our Sponsor

Unlike traditional dog sweaters, which have to be painfully spot-welded in place by left-handed Norwegian rabbis during the light of a full moon, Snuggie for Dogs can sap your pet of his or her dignity in just seconds!

Bears Repeating

Time for some cute nightmare fuel, in the form of this animation from artist and composer Cyriak, which looks like the result of a nuclear meltdown at Build-A-Bear.

Whooooooo Wants Lunch?

It’s bento long since we’ve had some bento, so let’s look at some too-cute-to-eat creations by “Gamene,” who showcases her work on Flickr and her blog Bento Zen.

It Just Works Redonkulously

With today’s release of “Lion,” its newest operating system, Apple is running out of big cats to use as code names. But Twitter user Kookizu has an elegant idea: OS X Maru, with advanced functions ready to go, right out of the box — assuming you can get it out of the box.


Thanks to Twitter user SunnyinSyracuse for keeping us on our toes.

It’s an… Interesting Interpretation…

The pattern is quite striking, and I really appreciate the avant-garde statement you’re making with the whole “no eyes” thing. It’s just that I was expecting a decoy with a bit more realism. Something I could put in my pen after lights-out, y’know?


“This is my new pet Winston. He lives with me at my quilt shop (Sew Tuff Quilting Co.) in Tofino, British Columbia Canada. You can find more photos of him on our website www.sewtuffquiltingco.com. Big fan of the site. Thanks, Erin”

Double Take, Take Two

Longtime Cuteologists will remember Amelia Santiago, crafter of “doppelganger dog sculptures.” Now she’s doubling down with a new set of photos of her latest lifelike (re)creations. You can see even more here and check out her website.




The DirecTV Guy Looks Kinda Different

Frogulence — I has it (ribbet).

I like the best (ribbet). But I also like savings the money (ribbet).


So when DirecTV tell me five months free plus mini giraffe for most premium package (ribbet)… I jump in it like lily pond (ribbet).


From sender-inner Natalie F.: “I recently was checking your site and saw a picture my dad, Barry F. had submitted several years back with my Pekingese, Puka Shu-shu and the rescued bull frog. The very day you posted this, my daughter caught a tree frog and decided to keep her as a pet. I am a photographer and had to take some quick photos of our tree frog, Princess, with a furry friend to send in for a tribute to my sweet beloved Puka!”

Concept shamelessly stolen from DirecTV commercial (ribbet).
