Oh, Towel Boy…

“… ah do believe ah aym finished with mah bay-thin’, so if you will be evah so kind as to hand me mah towel… and be sure to avert your eyes, you wicked thing, you!”

Yes, Miz Tallulah...

From sender-inner Jessie S.: “We’re watching a bearded dragon for a friend this week (her name is Toast, by the way…) and our furry kitty monster (Neko) has been on 24-hour lizard surveillance since she arrived.  He supervises her eating, sleeping, and her bath time.  Also note – check out Toast’s posh tail in the sink – can’t get the end of it wet!”

Bat Toes and ‘Tocks

According to this bat-tographer; "When you reach into a bag of bats to pull one out, they’re usually upside down and what you first see wriggling out is a cute little bat butt. " Yes, yes I see that.

There Otter Be A Law Against Being This Cute

Sea World may be famous for its killer whales, but two new arrivals may have guests saying "Shamwho?"  The San Diego park welcomed two Asian small-clawed river otter pups, born Feb. 7 to first-time parents Leo and Giselle.  A new otter/sea lion show debuts next month.

( Hmmph. Mom always liked HIM best. )

( You are getting SO noogied after dinner, ya little kiss-up. )

UPDATE: Four more otter pups born at Sea World Orlando!  It’s a conspiracy, I tells ya!

Houston, You Have No Problems Whatsoever…

… because your Houston Zoo has the world’s cutest animal (says so, right there on their Internets), making his grand entrance this weekend!  His name’s Toby, a red panda, and he’s probably putting the finishing touches on his cute moves even now.

First, we start with the slightly vacant-eyed goofy grin…

Daaawwww... and you will hug me and pet me and squeeze me and hug me...

… with a smooth segue into the pensive, thoughtful expression…

I am intrigued by your proposal.  Speak more of this thing you call 'Amway.'

… and wrapping up with the yummy-smacky feed-me face!

Say, you wouldn't happen to have any spare bamboo, would you?

Floppy manatee rescued!

According to newsite Sina:

"A Brazilian environmental police holds an Amazonian manatee calf after rescuing it from a resident who had purchased it from an animal trafficker in the Amazon city of Silves, Amazonas State, March 4, 2009. Manatees are a protected species in Brazil."

Meanwhile, over at Save the Manatee Club, also in Brazil a calf (perhaps the same one, we’re not sure) receives behbeh formula and takes a bref:

The NomNomNomNomNom Anthem

To complete the all-movies-all-the-time theme going on today, here is aanother brillo one; The NomNomNomNomNom anthem will make you salute the nearest flagpole:

Sent in by S.S.I. (Sthuper Sthender Inner) Josh N.!

Thank You, Thing

( Sung to the tune of "The Addams Family" theme song )

♫ In Spring, the snows’ll thaw out / Then all the creatures draw out
♫ And soon you’ll see a paw out / The raccoon in the floor.

♫ He’s hunting for some kibble / To nosh and have a nibble,
♫ But only gets a dribble / The raccoon in the floor.

Hmm, An Amusing Vintage…

"… full-bodied, with subtle overtones of strawberry and a charming effervescence that tickles the senses.  A worthy accompaniment to an appetizer of mild cheeses covered in ants, or perhaps a spinach and arugula salad with a rosemary and basil vinaigrette dressing covered in ants — well, just about anything covered in ants, really."

(PS:  That’s not wine, but apple/cranberry juice, according to the notes at YouTube.)
