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.
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.
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?

From the BBC, it’s Misery Bear Goes To London, from the filmmakers who brought you Misery Bear Attempts to Change Planes at Heathrow, and Misery Bear Gets Strip-Searched in Customs.
More Misery Bear here! Nice work, Nat S.!
… because Band-Aids can be turned into cute animal finger puppets, with teensy little earses! (Gee, now I want to hit my finger with a hammer so I can try this.)
Says Lisa C.: “Today I learned that those H-shaped Band-Aids are to put on your fingertips…and they look like Scottish fold kitty ears!”
