No, hamster tongues are not a figment of your imagination

You thought you only saw hamster tongues in your dreams—the dreams where you went to the Puppy-Comic Book-ice cream-trampoline store. But no. THEY'RE REAL!


I swear it's true! Thanks to Kappa Alpha frat bros Monty 'Ornk! Ornk!' and Wire.

Last night I dreamt that baby pandas roamed wild in Western Pennsylvania. Now THAT'S a good dream!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:41 AM

"Is... is that blood??"

I'm telling you, hamsters are just freakin' SCARY.

I saw a lot of hammie tongue back in my hamster owning days.

I remember years ago when I had my hamster Monkey how she was cleaning her paws one day and suddenly licked my nose when I brought her up to my face to kiss her.

Comics? Are you sure it wasn't gaming - didn't he have a booth at Squee3?

I think the new hammie game console introduced there was the 'Wee'.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:46 AM

and..the little paws, with their little pads...and each perfect little claw...and...

No Theo, that's not blood.

Though I once had my hamster Ariela go crazy and get scared. She bit my hands in about six places, leaving them dripping, although I didn't notice the bleeding until my mother brought it to my attention. I was too busy trying to catch Ari! She hopped around (and who knew they could hop?!) but my mother finally caught her while I cleaned myself up.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:49 AM

the paws...


Does he look like Lou Costello to anyone else?

One day, Christina, a TRUE vampster pic will slip through CO Labs screening & get posted. Then you'll see.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:54 AM

Theo, no one will notice if it does because vampsters don't show up in mirrors or on film!!!!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:56 AM

sooooooooooooooooo cute!!!!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 09:59 AM

That is a conundrum, J. Poe. Maybe thermal imaging? Night vision?

The prophecy! The prophecy!

*Sinks into a deep trance*

And lo it came to pass that the hammy did visit the house of many brothers.

And the brotherhood did drink and revel.

And the hammy was much offended.

'Forsooth, thou Bacchanalian brethren I am not a mere totem for your amusement. I am the hammy of legend. And I shall bring peace to the earth. Behold!'

And the hammy did stick out his tongue and bestow the lick of truth upon three of the brethren.

And then there arose from the masses a Squee that did resonate through-out the campus, rippling outward for all mankind to hear.

A great peace and joy fell upon the brethren

And cupcakes did rain from the heavens.

And the rivers and oceans did turn to liquid
chocolate of varying hues.

And the sun did more brightly shine…. but did not emit harmful UV rays.

Thus spoke the hammy, “Transmit my image far and wide so that all those who see it shall, tremble and squee and know peace.”

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:05 AM

I was just gonna say that the reason his eyes are shining is that he's thinking, "Now that I know how good he tastes, if I can just trip this human on the stairs, I'll eat like a king!"

But EricaE tells a much better story.

And no one has mentioned the perfect and magnificent spread of whiskers here.
I assume you were all too distracted by that tongue.
(That tongue.... Must do the bidding of hammy, must please the bearer of the pink tongue....)
And no, no stamps with this tongue.
Can you imagine how long it would take hammy to lick an entire stamp?
He'd have to start over, because the first bit would dry out.
Much too much like work for a little guy like this.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:12 AM

We have an ORACLE!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:16 AM

Eeeeeeeeee lookit those tiny paws with each individual toe clinging on the finger!!! The sparkling mischievous eyes! Twitchy nose and whiskers!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:17 AM

The tiny paw keeping the finger in place! ^_^

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:18 AM

I only reveal what the voices tell me to. ;o)

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:19 AM

Put that finger away! can't see enough of hammie-tongue to truly believe!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:22 AM

Erica: LOL!!! Huzzah! May it be so! :D

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:23 AM

I dunno about Lou Costello...he looks more like Vincent Price to me...which brings us back around to the Vampster side of town.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:24 AM

Tell us more Oh wise EricaE... we await with glee and squees!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:27 AM

Weeeell, M-... the voices did mention something about offerings of baked-goods like cake, danish, assorted cookies....

I'm setting up a shrine... Um yeah, and I will take your offerings to the hammy personally.

*Gives a furtive side-long glance to see if anyone is buying this.*

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:40 AM

Oh Jesus that is just too cute.

BTW, I had a dream about Neil Gaiman last night. Not sure what to think about that, other than I need to buy another volume of Sandman.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:42 AM

Oh my goooooooooooooooooooooodness!!! As the picture slowly loaded, I first saw the ears on that cutie pie and I nearly hyperventilated. That tiny little tongue just did me in! *melts*

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:44 AM

How'd you know about my dreams?!?!

**suspicious stare**

Are you with Homeland Security? [Homeland Security: CSI (Cute Stuff Investigation)]

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:57 AM

Ummm Oracle EricaE... how about lazagna? Will the hammie take lazagna... I make 12 different versions! *l*

(I only assemble and decorate baked goods...)

 |  May 16, 2006 at 10:58 AM

Can't say i've every seen a hamster tongue! How cute is that?!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:02 AM

I have consulted with the hammy. Offerings of lasagna are acceptable. Hammy prefers spinach lasagna with lots of cheese.

If you would like to become an acolyte in the sacred bakery of the Benevolent order of the Sisters of the Fluffy Cupcake, I'm sure we could find a place for you as a cake decorator.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:11 AM

More than the tongue - how bout those too sweet little pet feet??? With the hint of soft pink pads...SQUEE! And the clear adoration in the eyes - this hammie luffs his human...in more ways than one! :-)

Kris, in New England
 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:13 AM

Cupcake? No!!! The Benevolent Order is under fire! A cat-rat-pack-attack on fluffy orange cupcapes is underway even now!!!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:15 AM

oh goodnight! I can't even breathe it's so cute... someone QUICK!!! ask the hammie if he'll perform mouth to mouth!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:18 AM

oh lordy. I had a fixed expression of complete GLEE on my face for about 3 minutes after viewing this.



 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:22 AM

My God. 'cupcakes'

And I always preview before posting. Wow.

 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:25 AM

Oh my goodness that's too damn cute!!!! Put THAT on a shirt!!!!!

 |  May 16, 2006 at 11:33 AM
