Can we dim the house lights for a minute?

"Poopers" the Japanese Hammie representin' with a tribute song: "Choppin' Broccoli"

...And my lady,
she went downtown
She bought some broccoli
She brought it home.

She's chopping broccoli
Chopping broccoli
Chopping broccoli
Chopping broccoli

She's chopping broccoli
She's chopping broccoli
She's chop.. ooh!
She's chopping broccola-ah-ie!


Arigato, Chanse-san and Dana C.

 |  Jul 02, 2006 at 11:30 PM

Awwww, Poopers looks willing to share his broccoli treat with someone he loves!

 |  Jul 02, 2006 at 11:58 PM

Who can resist buying broccoli when it's advertised like this?

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 12:16 AM

OMG!!! That shot is pure genius! How can anyone not love rodents? Delightful!
P.S. Congrats on the Washington Post nod! Keep up the cute work! :)

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 12:32 AM

...just wow.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 12:55 AM

what a sweet little face!!!

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 01:06 AM

Awww! Schmoooopie! :-D
I swear I didn't realise hamsters can be so unbearably cute until I found this place.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 01:33 AM

I love hamsters. And I love broccoli. This is like, picture perfect squee material.

I'd share my broccoli anytime with that cutie.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 01:58 AM

He looks like he's got the "uh oh" face...Kind of like:
"What? THIS broccoli? No, I wasn't eating it.. I would never do that...I was...um...I was...bringing it for you!! Yea, that's it...I was bringing it to you!!! Oh, you don't want it? Well...can I have it then??"

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 04:11 AM

I think this hammie looks a bit nervous, perhaps because that is her bridal broccoli bouquet, or perhaps just because broccoli is the deadliest vegetable known to hamkind (It tries to warn you away with its terrible taste :o) Of course, I could be mistaking BEF + romantic mood lighting as nervousness.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 04:13 AM

lol, i think you got it stormcat. it's that classic "what broccoli?" moment.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 04:36 AM

LOL Betty, I wanna see a teeny tiny veil to go with the broccoli boo-kay! And a itty-bitty 3 tiered cake!

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 05:11 AM

"Chompin' broccoli" indeed. StormC--lol!!

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 05:19 AM

OH MY GAWD...visions of Dana Carvey going through my head with Sigourney Weaver looking on. OH how funny...(hysterical laughter can't be contained here!!)

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 05:28 AM

The BEF is off the charts here. Perhaps that lil' hammie needs the roughage to feel a bit less...eye-bulgey?

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 05:29 AM

I wanna see the next shot...of Hammie with that piece of broc shoved in his cheeks!

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 05:48 AM

We *really* need to set up some celebrity interviews.
Dana Carvey and Poopers on Cute Overload Late Night.

(egad... "Poopers?" What's next? I'm going to get a pet garter snake and name it Erectile Dysfunction, this I swear)

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 06:21 AM

That is so cute, but I will now have that song in my head. ALL DAY.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 06:25 AM

By the way... mostly we'll just call the snake "Ed," of course.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 06:29 AM

Oooooooo. So very cute. And so sincere! Look at the sincerity in those beady little ighs. O.o

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 06:30 AM

L-Rob -- OK OK, your kitty is cute! We get it... got anything *else* to say?

(btw, CuteBoy, it's spelled "sleeping")

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:00 AM

OMG that ish cute! You can find some cute stuff at my website becuase I do some of the same things. Hope you check it out!

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:03 AM

The hammie looks like he's saying, "Thankyew! Thankyewverramuch!" (He's almost holding the broccoli like a microphone!)

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:26 AM

Way too cute.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:29 AM

OMG, that's the funniest immitation of Dana Carvey I've ever seen!! Makes me lol! LOVE this web site - mrskittycats

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:36 AM

Ceebs...I think we know who Poopers could hire to make the delicate, miniature wedding cake...Lucy's boy, Mathijs van der Paauw.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:50 AM

I'm so glad that other people remember that hilarious Dana Carvey sketch!!!!! Great job, CuteOverload!!!!!!!!

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 07:55 AM

I love your choice of Dana Carvey song to represent your hamster. Gold.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 08:20 AM

With respect for the Dana Carvey original shouldn't it be 'chomping' broccoli?

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 08:50 AM

On the topic of hamsters, I'm now completely off the charts in suspense about where Luna has gone on Baruchito's Homecage. I never cared a whit about hamsters before I tapped into CO.

/OFF the topic of hamsters/

Here on CO, where teh Qute and the literate *frequently* collide--er, intersect--there may be some who would enjoy the Judith Barrington poem quoted in the July 3 entry on Language Log:


I mean, it *does* mention hedgehogs.

/resume hamster topic/

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 09:08 AM

Laurie C -- I think she's on the run:

(not my anim... http://pip.rubberfeet.org/ )

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 09:09 AM

Thankee Theo. btw, I'm planning to upload some new boxcar cat photos this evening. With informative captions!

Albert Broccoli's original vision of the famous lines from 'Goldfinger':

"Do expect this lightly sauteed in a wok?"

"No, Mr. Bond, I expect you to fry!"

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 09:24 AM

One of the lesser known but my absolute favorite Dana Carvey sketch ever. Poor college cafeteria workers had to suffer my friends' and my "performance" every time they served us the vile weed.

Cute hamster, too.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 09:55 AM

I forgot how adorable Kumanoko is. LMAO, Theo!! Ham on the lam. Not that it's better then anything *you* might have done, of course...;-)

LaurieC, maybe she got sick...or worse. :-(

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 10:03 AM

A new BEF:
Broccoli Eating Factor

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 10:14 AM

LaurieC, on your mommacat recommendation from Saturday, I'm thinking good thoughts for Luna.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 10:19 AM

Aubrey -- Glossary has been updated.

 |  Jul 03, 2006 at 10:22 AM

jaypo, knowing the bad luck Javi's had with his hamsters this year, I *was* fearing the worst.
