Everyone and their brother has sent in this Daily Mail article of this new species of rodent called a "Jerboa". People, this animal is not cute. [looking over glasses in lab coat] Let me tell you why. Rule #17, paragraph 14, item 7 SPECIFICALLY STATES that 'tiny ears' are cute. Rule #15 talks about a small ear to head ratio.
Why? Tiny ears are nibble-able! No one would even NOTICE if you chomped a hamster ear off would they!? No! They are small and fit in your mouf. This guy is like, part moth, and his ears would gak all the way down. Do you want that? Do you? Come on, People.
You got me on the beadiness of the eyes. At LEAST he's got that going for him.
