Make sure that’s organic, mmmkay?

For a red panda I don’t ask for a lot. Really.

I must have organic pears, apples and grapes.

I insist on hand-feeding [Beady-eye intense look]

I also need my two-toned look kept fierce (Clairol Hydrience Hibiscus Dark Red Hair Color # 32), at LEAST once a month

Thaaaaanks.

And let me know when the hot tub is ready. [Scampers back up a tree]

At the Hide-and-Seek Training Academy

Well, the 2008 Olympics may be a memory, but the hopefuls for 2012 are already getting a head start in the rigorous training for this demanding and often time-consuming event:

...three thousand, six hundred and twenty-SEVEN, three thousand, six hundred and twenty-EIGHT...

And here’s Diego El Kabonngg of Portugal, demonstrating the advanced eye-covering technique that swept him to the silver in 2000:

... five million, seven hundred thousand, two hundred and NINE, ...

Ready or not, here we come, Paula E! (top photo)

YOU ARE KIDDING ME

Gasp!

NO WAY she is dating that alpaca in paddock two. NO WAY.

We think paddock 2 is chock full of hotties too, Marie N.

Bunz and Frenchie’s Daring Caper

"All right, Frenchie — the coast is clear.  Time to make our move."

Some Lalo Schifrin music would be nice here.

"The old dame keeps the jewels in the penthouse apartment.  All you gotta do is (whisper, whisper)"

Huzza guzza whuzza fluzza...

"Right, boss — here I go!"

BOIINNNGGGG!

"Oh, and I forgot to tell you — the jewels are in a lead-lined safe with a quintuple-combination lock guarded by a laser-targeted motion sensor, fourteen armed guards, three rottweilers, and a delusional attack lizard.  So good luck!"

I'm behind you all the way, pal!

We lose more frogs that way, Janine F.

Jurassic Dork

Skillfully shrouded within the dense prehistoric jungle, the deadly velociraptor stalks his prey.  A soulless killing machine, he is as cunning as he is ruthless.  Patiently he waits as his unsuspecting quarry draws closer, and then, without warning … HE STRIKES!

Give it up, pal, you are SOOO dinner!

We all need our dreams, Karen G.

Hey, Baby—how YOU Dune?

Know then, that is is the year 10191. In this time, the most precious substance in the universe is the spice Melange.  The spice extends life. The spice expands consciousness. The spice softens hands while you do dishes.  The spice exists on only one desolate, dry planet in the entire universe, guarded by the fearsome giant sand-llamas.

OH HAI I CAN HAS FREMEN KTHXBYE

If you walk without rhythm, you won’t attract the worm, Amanda L.

P.S. the space-time continuum has been breached! This is the FIRST time a photo has appeared on both Cute Overload AND UGLY OVERLOAD OMG PONIES!!1! – Ed.

The Patagonia—WHUUUUUUUT?

They also obvy adore lounging on jean-pannnts and receive weekly mani-pedis.

And, can DISAPPROVE WITH THE BEST OF ‘EM!

You Otter Be In Pictures

And now here’s an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Modern Otter magazine’s annual swimsuit edition.  This year, legendary Portuguese photographer Salão do Invernos leads his models and crew to the exotic beaches of Yorkeys Knob, Australia.

Ahhh, ees perfect spot!
oh dear, originally uploaded by flurokitty.

Here we get a rare glimpse of Salão’s unusual "over the shoulder" shooting technique.

You are no doubt amazed by my raw talent, yes?

In a tense moment, creative differences erupt between the photographer and crew.

I am the photographer!  I OUTRANK YOU!

Later, Salão suffers another setback when he discovers he forgot to put batteries in the camera.

Well, so much for my Pulitzer!
