Wow. I was ready to post something snarky and then I saw the picture of the dog with the fawn. Awww ... wonder how long it took Rover to figure out venison was on the menu?

See also baaaaabyanimals. With a name like that, it has to be good.

And the classic kittenwar. Having to choose is almost like torture, in a way. A fuzzy, adorable, cuddly way.

Tribbles: fact or fiction?

Kinda depends on how fast they can breed. I always thought that the tribbles were big balls of fluff from all the rapid fucking.

I love that our trademark MeFi snarkiness has been conmpletely vanquished by the cuteness.

Wow. The FPP wasn't quite a cute overload, but the supplemental links in the thread have pushed it wayyyy past cute overload...to, like, cute imminent warp core breach or something.

She canna take it anymore! They're just too cute, cap'n!

The comments beneath the pictures are pretty good and proof that the visitors have substance. Or maybe the comments came from the mefi'ers.

You could have at least thrown up the NSFW tag. Sheesh, some of us have bills to pay.

completely unrelated, but spellbound recommends Baksheesh as a replacement for sheesh.. just thought I'd share.

Painquale: Wow. the first thing i thought of was the dog at the end of Body Snatchers. The second thing I thought was that it is cute, in a Borgninesque sort of way.
posted by moonbird at 5:47 AM on December 15, 2005


In physics, absolute cute is a fundamental upper bound on the cuteness of a macroscopic system. In practice it is believed to be unachievable but its existence has been inferred from extrapolation from observed physical phenomena and from cuteness theory. Today it is defined as the state at which all motion of particles would theoretically be amazingly cute.

The Kitten and Bunny cuteness scales are defined so that absolute cute is 1000 kittens (K) or 764 degrees Bunny (°B). The BabySeal and Koala scales are defined so this is −273.15°BS or −459.67 °K.

If there is a kitten in a sink and there is no one there to see it, is it still cute?

Oh, and I'll see your ratel and raise you a pangolin.
posted by moonbird at 5:58 AM on December 15, 2005


I'd like to point out that as a completely not "awwwwww" kind of guy, I saw this and went awwwww and have been passing this link around for the last two days.

I even added some text to the flying squirrel (or whatever) that says "EMAIL POUNCE" for no other reason than to email to random people and CONQUER THEM WITH CUTE.
posted by socratic at 5:59 AM on December 15, 2005


The pangolin is definitely cool. It might win in the cuteness category, and maybe even the oddness category, but I'm sticking with my surly ratel. I especially liked this comment on the ratel page:

Ratels are notoriously bad-tempered. They're one of the few animals that will literally throw a tantrum. They do the works, rolling on the ground, growling at nothing, throwing things. I saw one throwing a really good one on a doco once because it had lost its mousey snack somewhere in a small log. It got so angry it started banging the log on the ground and kicking it, then it rolled around snarling in fury that it had been thwarted by a mouse. I think they're awesome!

I could have done without seeing the picture of Carrot Top in a hot tub on the Dogs in Tubs page. But other than that...forwarding this link to my girlfriend will be a Christmas gift unto itself.

I am seriously worried that I am a horrible grumpy person because I didn't enjoy this. Those sort of levels of cute are just TOO MUCH for me. It actually left me feeling a bit queasy. Maybe I'm just not an animal lover. I can't bear cutesy kittens. OK, you can start throwing things now (ducks). Actually, please don't throw any ducks.

posted by HTuttle at 7:03 AM on December 15, 2005


that kitten war site is interesting. Presumably, it would be possible to programme a neural network that used the ratings to derive the essence of cuteness. With that power we could surely engineer the cutest kitten imaginable.

Fucking scientists. So preoccupied with whether or not you could do a thing, you don't stop to think if you should.

You really should.

This site made my husband nervous. As I was scrolling down through all the cuteness, he said he kept expecting an appearance from Goatse at any time.


Um, not because he thinks Goatse is cute, but because he cannot see so much cuteness without suspecting evil intentions.

This is just like that Invader Zim episode in which Zim tries to conquer the world with a giant hamster name Pipi.

Also, my Austrian friend told me there's no word in German that quite means "cute," and I think that explains a lot.

It doesn't get much cuter than a baby seal. They're like big fluffy pillows with shining eyes and button noses.

Which makes it all the more satisfying when you beat them to death with a baseball bat.
