Vykhukhol.

It's not a Blogger verification word. It's this li'l endangered guy:

Apparently some Russians can't stop poaching the adorable little critters.

Vykhukholics.

And why not? She's awful cute. She's got Dad's baby blues and just a soft crop of fair hair, but it's those lips - check out the super-size pout...

Althouse: All about the pouty lips....

Internet Ronin said...

No, Icepick: It's about collagen treatments!

This is what happens when you cross a platypus and a rat.

Dave said...

Why are you putting pictures of Zarqawi on your blog?

The rat's been killed.

"Vykhukhol"

You sure it's not a Blogger verification word? Could've sworn I've typed it in before...

Word verification: "usoglw". New type of firefly. You know, "Hey, fly, you so glow!"

Hehe...

I guess I'm the only "cute animal story" purist who's trying to keep you honest. NO CUTE ANIMALS! That was the resolution, no? I guess "cute" is debatable here, but, still.

So I guess you met your deadline?

Ruth Anne: This was my resolution: "I'm going to hold cute animal stories up to fiction standards from now on -- not because I think they are all made up, but because there are too many of them, we're too into them, they are the junk food of the web, and they aren't really that good. If some short story writer had come up with the Ziggy the Parrot story, you'd immediately see it for the dreck it is."

So it's not the animal itself, even if I'm attracted to it for its cuteness. It's the cute story about an animal that I rebelled against.

I hope you noticed that I resisted the cute story of the woman who hit the breeder with a dead chihuahua. (And no, I'm not violating my rule against the word "breeder." It was the breeder of chihuahuas.)

I stand corrected.

Biff said...

Well, it's still better than these guys.

I have to admit that, as I scrolled down to this post, the first thing that crossed my mind was that it had to be a Blogger verification word.

(My word for this post: "nwmdc"--New World Methodist Daily Church?)
