I was promised hiccups and did not see any.

For shame sir.

Listen close. The hiccups are tiny little peeps.

Well, we could discuss how we felt about the post.

Or we could all go "awww. I like porcupines"

and someone would show up and post something funny and get favorited.

And someone else would post some other videos that were cute.

then someone would show up and complain that we're taking cute internet videos far too lightly and how could we be so callous.

Then someone would complain that we can't post pictures anymore.

And then we'd all lose interest and go to the next Front Page Post.

It's the circle of life.

Needs more hiccups. Would not watch again.

The last film I saw with a title similar to that was dramatically different.

For someone out there these videos pick up where traditional triple-X porn leave off.

Of course the baby porcupine has a name even cuter still.

The porcupet.

There is no point in living another day, for as long as I live I will never see anything cuter. Thank you, I think.

Also, squeeeeee.

I blame our societies obsession with cute on the neo-cons.

With so much ugliness and war in the world we're forced to search out lolcats to help us deal.

omg, mjjj, that foot action killed me. Seriously. I'm a zombie now.

Striking shortage of cute videos featuring baby carrion-eaters.

I was really expecting a puppy eating apple, but I didn't get it :(.

The rest were insanely cute!
posted by Cat Pie Hurts at 11:39 AM on October 28, 2007


My favourite part was where the baby porcupine ate the banana slice (how human its grasp!) and had tiny baby porcupine hiccups (almost inaudible!).

Splendid.

I like the smacking sounds the baby porcupine makes, and how it looks like Albert Einstein.

From this post, I learned that porcupines have the dexterity of squirrels and monkeys. Good to know. They'll use that ability, along with their disarming cuteness, come the revolution.

The apple-eating puppy, however, was a waste of bandwidth.

that melon slice is bigger than the kitty!

also, i totally forgot about the sneezing panda video. i haven't seen it in a couple of years, but about the first 200 times i saw it it made me laugh hysterically.

That's the ugliest chihuahua dog I have ever seen.

Thanks dirigibleman. For a few seconds that video made me forget what an awful day I am having.

Awww, and sometimes lion cubs will crawl inside a carcass and eat their way out. So cute!

That's no chihuahua; it's a puggle*.

*"Puggle" = $1200 mixed breed.

Christ I'm getting tired of seeing this 'word' pop up in every post.

Awww so much cuteness in one little post. That duckling sharing his bread crumbs with the carp is precious. *insert high-pitched squeal here*

I wonder why it is that we think it's cute when little baby creatures make smacking sounds while they eat, but if our friends or family members do it we're grossed out.

amyms, good question. I think there's special permission for babies.

madamjujujive, aww, those happy-waggly feet! That tiny rascal ate with such gusto. Adorable.

dirtynumbangelboy, loved that limply lazy cat. Too pooped from work to think but there's a really good LOLCATism in that video, just waiting to be articulated.
posted by nickyskye at 4:51 PM on October 28, 2007


I think everyone's smacking noises are cute, within reason. Neoteny is usually the reason generally for the "when babies do it it's cute but when others do it, it's creepy/gross/nasty" vibe

My goodness - how could I have forgotten about the the cat that eats with a fork and chopsticks? Even though she's not a baby cat, she still seems to belong in this thread!

I just started reading The Road, so I think maybe this little movie will come in handy later...

wtf is up with the cat who uses a fork and chopsticks? Is it a joke? That made my brain hurt.
posted by smartyboots at 9:51 PM on October 28, 2007


Hadn't seen that cat eats with fork and chopsticks one in years, amazing. Wondered how the hell she did that. ah ha "Faye Murrell, also of Tampa, worked for nine months to teach her cat Tessa to eat at the table with a knife and fork, which are attached to her paws with Velcro wrist straps."

Just curious: how is it that this woman is holding a porcupine without wearing some sort of protective armor? Or gloves at least? Cute or not, I thought porcupine quills were involuntarily delivered to intruders -- but she's not looking like a pincushion.

What gives?
