Cuteness… IN 3-D!

From a Flickr collection of 3-D images, several cuties just seemed to jump out at us, like the pup below. You’ll need the old-fashioned red/blue 3-D glasses to see the effect.

Meanwhile, there’s another group devoted to cross-view 3-D images.  You don’t need glasses to view these, but you will have to cross your eyes, and it may take some practice before you get it right.  Click the lemur to see an example.

Today on “This Old Box”

Well, the recession may have hit some of us kinda hard, but you can still be a handyman no matter where you are.  So, on today’s show, I’ll be mixing a half bag of flour and a broken bottle of Kayo syrup into a durable all-weather sealant.  Later, I’ll show you how to turn an old license plate into a distinctive end table.

Oxymoron alert: The Disapproving Fawn

She’s fawning! She’s disapproving! Fawning! Disapproving! She frightens and confuses me!

OBVY created by Japanese scientiiiiists [singsong]

These little Pikachu dudes, called “モモンガ” (Momonga) were obviously meticulously crafted in the Secret Mt. Fuji Lab of Japanese Cuteness.

They’re also known as Japanese Dwarf Flying Squirrel and live in tree holes in forests in Japan. They’re nocturnal, and eat seeds, fruit, tree leaves, buds, bark AND KITTENS (just kidding.) Arigato, Mary N.

Seriously, You’re Wearing That?

No, really, it’s a together look.  Those checkerboard leggings really work with the plaid in that kilt, the feather boa nicely softens the effect of those leather gauntlets, and that “Partridge Family” lunch box makes a chic evening bag.  And I agree with you: That yellow-and-pink bra is too pretty to be worn underneath your blouse; good call on that one.  So you’ll be home early, then?

This Job Sucks, But in a Good Way

According to the Los Angeles Times and elsewhere, two red panda cubs were abandoned by their mother, so zookeepers at China’s Taiyuan Zoo found a replacement: A dog owned by a nearby farmer.  Thanks to the milk of this generous pup, two endangered cubs are growing up.

Cute? …or Not Cute?

Cute: Two affectionate anteaters enjoy a tender moment together.

Not Cute: Two Siamese cats have a little accident with the Krazy Glue.
