SQUEEEEE!

Behold, an animal capable of squaring off with the Slow Loris in a Cuteness Deathmatch.

Awwwww!

Only 3.2 grams? A packet of artificial sweetener is one gram.

Sure, it's cute now, but when it grows up and eats your garage, you'll be sorry!

I think I'll stick with warm puppies; they've never been designated as a biblical plague. Maybe I'm weird, but there was something about the creepy stare. They're never alone, you know.

A kangaroo mouse. So what?

Cute Overload is fun, but its manual is missing at least one cuteness rule: rodents smaller than one kilogram are never cute.

Come to think of it, most rodents larger than one kilogram aren't cute either. Except for capybaras.

staghounds said...

Cuscus.

And Tapirs.

Capybara aren't rodents, they are FISH. Ask the Pope.

I think that thing has partied too hardy.

The Chinese sez: "Body weight testing."*

*Subject to a native speaker of any Chinese language. The man that taught me the Chinese I know was punching me in the head or strangling me at the same time.

"Spear form no good. I strangle you until you get right."

It kinda does look like knocked back 3 or 4 thimbles full of tonsil paint and just wants a cold pack and a couple of Advil.

I still think it's cute.

Bob said...

Aw, cool. A hairy golf ball that comes with its own tee.

LabRat said...

That thing is NOT cute. It's a giant head with terrifying soulless eyes mounted on a freaky-looking pair of stilt legs with disturbing feet and no apparent neck or torso in between. If it were any larger it would be one of the horrors in a Wayne Barlow book of illustrations.

nah, for cute you need the bushbaby.

Bushbabies have not a lot of fear of humans and are friendly. In the bush, we had them throw figs at us from the trees until we offered them some honey. Then they came down and groomed us, looking for lice in our hair. Thankfully, they found none.

Trouble with bushbabies was, once they developed an affection for you, they would "mark" you by peeing in their hands and rubbing it all over your face, ears, head.

Cute, though. Big farging eyes, which as any Mangahead will tell you, is the core tenet of cuteness.

Bushbabies, cuscus, and tapirs.

Holy $%^&*! Slow loris tickling!

Damnedest thing I've ever seen.

My golden standard for cuteness is still either the tree kangaroo or a caracal kitten.

staghounds said...

Alright, tree kangaroos, bushbabies, cuscus, and tapirs. And Knut. And Model Ms.

I'm cuted out.

Hey, it gets a second date from Kim Kardashian.

Farm.Dad said...

Deformed rat with a long tail.

Tam said...

zomg PYGMY SLOW LORIS!!!!

dantesfiringrange said...

Fold! You win Tam.

Strange trunkless creature.

Now the Loris, it reminds me of those freaky 1960's era paintings of sad little kids with those huge bug eyes that used to be in my pediatrician's waiting room when I was little, that freaked the daylights out of me. Eyes that would follow you around the room as you moved.

staghounds said...

Squee-off!

falnfenix said...

i don't get why people think these little guys are icky.


...then again, i don't get why people find human children adorable, or why they're scared of snakes, so maybe it's just me.

Weer'd Beard said...

I gotta say that Chicken Chick either spent not enugh, or too much time in the egg.

Not cuite, Sorry!

ravenshrike said...

It's a miniature t-rexish rat with tourettes. What exactly is cute about it.

Christina LMT said...

Any kind of Loris(es?) creep me out. I think it's the eyes and the paws.

Cute? Hmmm---maybe, but he sure is a fastidious bastard. . .

mariner said...

It's all nose, mouth and feet. Obviously a Leftist Slow Loris.

That thing ain't cute, it's a hairy cockroach. The Slow Lorris would eat it...which makes the Slow Lorris better, of course.

OH, Tam, whoever added that horrible "music" to the PSL video needs to be shot while being dropped down an elevator shaft.
