Z-O-M-G!

You just caused a huge 9.2 magnitude cute earthquake to erupt in Washington D.C. upon the image loading.

Question of the day: Would G.W. Bush torture a baby Chipmunk?

Of course he wouldn't torture a baby chipmunk... unless, of course, it were a Muslim baby chipmunk, a vaguely-middle-eastern-looking baby chipmunk, a Democrat baby chipmunk, or a baby chipmunk known to have watched The Daily Show in the last five years.

Is this Baby week? The bunnies, now this little chipmunk!

Dan - .....or a gay chipmunk.

And BTW - love that Johnny Stash - oops - Cash T-shirt.

Kinda, yeah. Not so much babies as conventionally cute animals. I like putting up pictures of wildlife, but usually I do birds of prey, hummingbirds, insects, monkeys, and fish.

The other day I just got sick of the unrelenting parade of doom and gloom. I saw the baby rabbit picture on Flickr "Explore" and I thought it would be nice to put up something that represented hope and new life, just for a change. Then somebody on the bunny thread requested a chipmunk...

Yep. I have an 8 month-old granddaughter who is just the delight of our families and includes even 2nd cousins (all boys), great-aunts & uncles, and I think that is precisely why. It's about hope and promise.

LB - you've got to stop doing this to me. I'm trying to get through menopause. This image is going to kick in phermones, hormones, brain waves...I'm trying to get over this stuff. I'm going to have to keep buying this semi-expensive bio-hormone skin cream if you keep this up.

The thing is - the cream really works, and you can get it at the health food store (for now). And NO, I don't work for the company, or even know anybody involved with the company. I'm just on a tangent. Something actually works for a change. Sound the alarm.

Damn that pic is cute. I also recommend you look up the footage of the easy to watch live birth of the brand new panda at the Atlanta Zoo. Great footage.

I just know I'm in love.

Aw, MK. I'm sorry. I'm a total putz at the morale boosting stuff.

Thanks for the chipmunk!

Tonight coming home I saw a fox. My place of employment all but sits against the foothills of the mountains that surround our valley, so it wasn't that far from home. But they are SO cute. Of course, raccoons are cute but nasty little suckers.

I saw a fox in Egypt once. Along with citrus trees, another thing that I thought I would never see in Egypt.

I've got a seven-week-old daughter, who is (in my unbiased opinion) the cutest baby in the world. When I look at her, about 75% of the time I feel hope and promise, and the other 25% of the time I'm horrified that I'm offering up this defenseless baby as a sacrifice to the imminent death throes of our ill and perverted civilization.

I guess I already put my money down, though: when we decided to have this baby we already bet big on the existence of a viable future, and all we can do is try to make sure it happens for her sake. A psychological advantage of having kids is that you can no longer afford to lapse into complete nihilism.

Matt's baby is awfully cute. I've seen pictures.

Can we get aeroman over here to kill this "cute" buzz as well? I'm clearly made too happy by this story....

I could easily become a "baby animal picture" hoarder.

On those grim, cold January nights, I often wish I could curl up in a pile of baby animals. Maybe everyone has this nesting urge, or am I weird? Could be both too!

I once caught a chipmunk in a live trap. It was a cold autumn morning and being in an uninsulated metal trap overnight had forced the chipmunk into torpor. It was limp, as though dead, when I pulled it out of the trap. As it lay in my warm hands, it started trembling, almost imperceptibly at first, then more, then it shivered violently as though in a seizure. In a few minutes it was wide awake and I dropped it lest it might bite me. It ran into the brush and was gone. They’re tougher than you’d think.

"Question of the day: Would G.W. Bush torture a baby Chipmunk?"

Answer: Yes, he most certainly would, and it will soon be made legal.

I wonder if this desire to torture people is some sort of latent childhood fantasy he had growing up, since he was apparently known to have tortured small animals.

We just found a four week old baby chipmunk that had been abandoned by its mother. The thing is insufferably cute. It's blind in one eye, the runt of the litter, but it talks to you and gets pissed off when you put it down. It likes to be held and loved up on. In the UK where they're a bit more sane, chipmunks are common pets.
