New levels of Stooptitude!

If you think I'd stoop so low as to try and cater to the Slashdot crowd with this "Hamster + Logitech" image...


You're ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. Oh, and it's Soooooo Rule #14.


Baroo? [little Hammie looks up]


A thousand thanks, Trey G.

Hamsters stuffed into electronic devices? Squirrels in cups? Terrified looking dogs with squirrells on their heads and human hands around their necks? This is all starting to be very un-cute ... and posting these pictures may make people think doing these things is okay. It's not ok. I think the next cute rule should be something about no forced cuteness ... those hamsters are perfectly cute on their own.

I love it "stoopitude", such a classic!

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 06:29 PM

Oh, why not admit that we were *all* traumatized by our folks' insistence on taking pics of us when we were teenytiny infants?!

Theriously, I liketh "stoopitude" most muchly. Even.

I never thought hammies could get any cuter but I was WRONG!!! Want my cheek on one, my nose on another-- Kissing the other two at the same time!! Soooooooo precious I can't stand it...

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 06:37 PM

The loving-ness of all of use has shone through with the graphics on this page! Such cute lil' hammies!

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 06:41 PM

Them little hammies just made my day.... nay, my whole week!

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 06:44 PM

rechargeable?? hahaha that's absolutely brilliant!
esp since the hammies are asleep and literally in need of recharge... hehe

Bothered & E. Collision, absolutely, I believe most of these domesticated animals thrive with attention anyways~ the more reason the better; it's like the mama cat annoyed at the adopted puppy for chewing on mama cat's tail, but mama cat pulls the puppy closer so she can lick adopted puppy clean & shiny...~

These hamsters won't remember the bright, flashing lights or the Big Mean Quarter... They're thinking about eating, sleeping and pooping right now. Not scary humans. (After all, the big nasty humans give them food, no?) ;)

I'm the one that took these pictures, and sure they are cute, but you are a STRANGE bunch of people...

Don't worry, these dwarf hamsters are FINE, their mother didn't eat them afterwards, and they all grew up to be happy healthy "hammies".

Strange we might be, but most of us think your lil' hamsters are the ultimate in Cute-itude.

logitech should SO use this idea for some advertisement hehehe; perhaps megan can submit it and get some extra dough to spread more viral cuteness around the world :9

Whoa, Ladykiss, I barely noticed you here! Sorry!

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 07:43 PM

I love the symmetrical arrangement of the various feet/hands in the top pic. Nicely done.

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 07:43 PM

Yes, thanks Meg!

 |  Apr 03, 2006 at 07:53 PM

Being one of the /. crowd that is still around on this site I do appreciate the connection of cute and hi-tech. *dies* *dies again*

Dawn - for reference, about the size of the old 10p piece.

Just for the record, the doggies in the squirrel pictures were not being choked. Someone was just holding their head. And the squirrel likes it in the cup, its nice and cozy. They are all very happy animals and very spoiled. The dogs may not want to acknowledge Chippy exists but I know when I'm not home they all party hard together. Continue on with the cuteness!!!!
