There’s a video going around the ‘net today called “The Origins of Cute,” which aims to explain, scientifically, why humans and animals find baby humans and animals cute. SPOILER ALERT, the answer is because we have to in order for all of our species to survive. OTHER SPOILER ALERT, that is an answer that everyone knows already. I’m not sure why I watched that video when I knew that was the answer, and I’m even more not sure why I expected any other answer. I’m even more more not sure why I chose to bring it up today. I thought it would make sense, since we spend so much time talking about cute things here? I don’t know. I can’t explain everything that I think or why I carry out things that make no sense. That’s just life. You know what else is just life? How we all have to watch ten great animal videos in a row right now. THAT’S JUST LIFE! Get used to it. Let’s go.

10. Sleepy Kitten Trying To Play

9. Dog Sneeze Attack

8. Violin For A Donkey

7. Kangaroo Jumps With Boy

6. Cat With One Shoe On, Zooey Deschanel Background Music

5. Peaceful Video Of Baby Hippo And Mom

4. Ticklish Meerkat

3. Ducks Cross Highway AHHHHH

2. Talking Sea Otter

1. Baby Hedgehogs In A Chocolate Box

BABY HEDGEHOGS IN A CHOCOLATE BOX? Whaaaaaaaaat. WHAAAAAAAAAT! Get out of town with that. Specifically get out of your town and get into my town and then come to my apartment and leave the baby hedgehogs so I can keep them as pets. Talking sea otter is obviously number two because otters are the best and you barely even need to add in some other cute extra, like talking, but if you must then BY ALL MEANS! Ducks crossing the highway is super scary and they are very lucky that nothing bad happened to them and I hope they learned their lesson. Ticklish meerkat, give me a break. Baby hippo and mom, give me a big break. Good jobs, everybody. Congrats to all of us. Love ya. Have a good week. G’bye.

  1. I am going back to that river and finding that otter and making him live with me and my dog. I will have to get him a pool but it will be worth it.

    • Sure, an otter talking to you is cute, but a dog starts talking to you then you’re ‘crazy.’ -David Berkowitz

  2. I’m pretty sure that Otter said Redrum.

  3. Baby HippOMG SO CUTE!

  4. Why is the video of that Donkey and violin is private! What does she DO with that violin!??

  5. Don’t you love it when you have a dog and you are like “you can get on the couch, but you have to lay on this blanket” and they’re all “oh, yeah sure you got it” and then they find some way to have just one part of their body hanging off the blanket onto the couch, as if to say “I like it up here, so I’ll mostly follow the rules, but fuck you?” Anyone? Just me?

  7. I was not aware that chocolatiers that were not employed by Purdy’s made chocolate hedgehogs (as in, hedgehog-shaped chocolates).

    In a related note, hedgehog: great animal name or greatest animal name?
