"Instantly Improve Your Day With This Magical Baby Tapir."

I instantly knew this Buzzfeed piece could only have been written by Summer Anne Burton.
Just remember that tapirs are real, actual creatures that live on the same earth as me and you.

They look like... miracularious little sepia watermelons.

Well, if it weren't for the tapir porn at the end, I'd put this one on Facebook. It is really cute! (The baby one, that is.)

Babe the Pig redux. That was a good movie.

I used to be into cute animal pictures, but now I'm trying to tapir off.

I liked the video you linked to where Björk takes apart the TV or the PC base unit or whatever it was.

I would never resort to punching a woman, but miracularious gets me closer.

So, I got lost for awhile there. Fifty cutest things that ever happened is not enough.

I wonder what they taste like roasted.

I think it's nice. You've got to enter the world of Summer Anne.

Let yourself go!

Um, yeah. Right. A tapir at the Oklahoma City zoo bit off a keeper's arm a few years back, a girl in her twenties, IIRC. Think about that for a moment while you're getting all goofy about the sepia watermelon.

They'd kill ya as soon as look at you. In the real world. But melt into the Summer-Anne night.

edutcher, that is true! My sister has a Yorkie puppy (well, he's a former puppy now.) He is so accustomed to people calling him "cute" that he thinks it's his name and will change direction and trot expectantly toward anyone who uses the word, whether it's directed at him or not. I am not a small-dog person but I confess to finding this little dog irresistible.

Tapir or danta is an endangered species because is hunted for the meat specially in Venezuela and Brasil. not because of the flavor but for the quantity. Meats is extremely scarce in the amazonian jungle. Some people hunt it for religious and medicinal purposes
But it is sacred for others so they dont hunt the tapir

I seem to be auto-editing because I saw "miraculous" and thought that the phrase "miraculous sepia water-melon" was a great line.

Since that's not what it said, I'm with all of you.

"By photographer Amiee Stubbs."

I think her name just had a vowel movement.
