Monkey Business

DSC03241Pal, who gave you that haircut? I think you need your money back.

“I recently returned from a trip to the Indian state of Kerala where we visited the Periyar Tiger Reserve. Alas, we didn’t see any of the big cats but this macaque monkey youngster was happy to pose! (Obviously it had heard of Rule of Cuteness #99!)” -Nicole D.

Caturday GIF Spectacular

output_hbJEoGEmma S’s cat Zigzag proposes a new Rule. “‘A thing accompanied by a floofier version of that thing is cute.’ I would like to introduce my little brother Loki. I feel that even though Loki doesn’t have nearly enough floof, he is still quite cute.”

P.S. (from Zigzag’s can opener:) “Hope you like these pics of our two fluff-piles. Ziggy is about 6 and wandered into our lives as a stray. A year ago he adopted Loki (now almost 2.)”

They’re B-a-a-a-a-ck

Guess Which Rule Of Cuteness THIS Is?

She's growing so quickly - ImgurAbsolutely got some Rule #42 here. “Ears that flop over a leetle beet are cute.” (Imgur.)

Kitteh Matchingks AKA ROC #07

The only thing better than ONE kitteh, is….another kitteh. Remember: Rule Of Cuteness #07: A thing, accompanied by a smaller version of that thing, is always cute.

Rule Of Cuteness Proposal From Matt S.

[Update, 11:42am PT: make sure your voice is heard- every vote counts! Looks like we may have a new RULE. The voting is. not. even. close. -Ed.]

“My name is Matt S. You may remember me from my Caption Contest victory last Shark Week. But I digress: there is serious business at hand. It’s my opinion that a Universal Truth of Cuteness has been overlooked: Legs like little sticks are cute. See these two examples and try to disagree! There are currently 99 Rules of Cuteness, but a stick ain’t one. Let’s make it 100.”

What do you think? Should this be a new Rule? It wouldn’t be #100, due to the mysterious gap between Rules 50-95. (Something to do with…the Bermuda Triangle or Area 51.)

Take the Poll—this is YOUR call, People. We’ll discuss the results tomorrow.
