11 on the Applause-O-Meter

[Whispering English accent into a microphone] and he has finished the dance with a bow... another stellar performace by Norville, the dwarf hamdancer. No other ham can come close to his 'Handheld dances' of perfect execution, tail posistioning, extended paw and ear tuckage. Brilliant...simply brilliant. [audience clapping]

Aww. Perfect commentary. Had me in stitches.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:08 PM

Hahaha! A little inspiration drawn from the two announcers in the Disco Dressage vid, eh?

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:13 PM

Ballerina hammy!

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:17 PM

Now if that's not adorable, I obviously have no sense of what is or isn't. Lots of "Bravo's!" from this corner! "Encore, Encore!"

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:18 PM

The toes! The toes! They slay me! Wee little pink nibblets they are!

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:21 PM

That was one of the funniest posts you've ever done. I read the whole commentary outloud in the voice before scrolling down and when I finally scrolled I laughed so hard! Thanks!

i just died

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:26 PM

I am so getting a tutu for my hammie.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:50 PM

He puts everything into his art, and it shows. Bravo!

It looks like an old fashioned elaborate bow! Man, those are cute toes......

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:51 PM

The tail stubtitude is just too moiche. I am slain.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 03:57 PM

The toes!!!! *faints from cuteness*

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 04:19 PM

Strictly ballroom, In Awwwe.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 04:24 PM

Whatever you do, don't applaud with the hammie in your hand! You'll squish him!

Anyone remember Angelina Ballerina? It was one of my favorite books as kid :-)

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 05:03 PM

Oh. My. Sweet. Fuzzy. Goodness. The Toes!!! So miniscule & dainty! Too wee even for the nibblinz! That pinkie toe! I've never seen one smaller. I shall die now.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 05:05 PM

that must be the tiniest ball of explosive cuteness that i have ever seen! I guess cute can come in all sizes of packages . http://www.cutepetopia.com

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 05:10 PM

That little extended foot and teensy toes are just killer.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 05:17 PM

Laurie C.... good point! Hee!

This little fella is just oh so graceful! I'm visualizing him in spandex tights (like Baryshnikov?), a ruffled shirt (a la Seinfeld), and teeny weeny eensy toe shoes! To protect the prosh liddo feetsies, of course! ;-)

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 05:21 PM

it's Hamma Pavlova!

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 05:25 PM

OMG I felt my heart just melt into complete mush. The perfect posture the little ears. The foot extended just so. I am in Aww...

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 07:10 PM

But Palm Sunday was WEEKS ago, wasn't it?

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 07:13 PM

Finally! Something really cute.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 07:47 PM

OK, total thread-jack, but I can't think of anywhere else I can say this:
I get SO EXCITED just hearing the music for "Planet Earth"! New episode...now! yay!!

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 08:01 PM

Bravo, baby mousie! Balanchine, himself, would flip for that pointe tendu. *applause*

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 08:02 PM

Has there ever been a ham that WASN'T adorable? No? I didn't think so either.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 08:08 PM

heh heh. Good one Aubrey.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 08:13 PM

Oooh, good idea, Theo!

Just watched Edward Scissorhands for the first time in YEARS, and now I'm craving more slightly bizarre movie fun.

Although I like to think that this was one of those dramatic modern dances that always make me suppress giggles as everyone around me apparently is in awe of the masterpiece they just witnessed.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 08:57 PM

a perfect bow to his public, all he need is a little top hat and it would be even more perfect. That is adorable

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 08:58 PM

Wow, what's the head-to-body ratio on this little dewd??

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 09:31 PM

She is so sweet! Is it just me or would she make a perfect Josephine from Kafka's 'Josephine the Singer'?

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 10:07 PM

Naridu, please, NO MORE KAFKA!

I love, love, love him, but I have been slowly DYING writing this essay on The Trial. I thought it'd be good to take a refresher on Lit. writing. I think it's sucking my soul away.

A splendid picture and a brilliant commentary.
*standing ovation*
Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!!!

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 11:32 PM

It's a palm rodent.
You can carry it around, and it performs all your rodent tasks.

 |  Apr 22, 2007 at 11:41 PM

It's so *TINY*!

Hey, at least now the dancing rat has a partner to perform a _pas de deux_ with - the ballerina in the tutu has to be small enough so that the male dancer can toss her into the air and catch her again.

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 12:17 AM

That photo is fantastic. Whoever took it has skilllllz, dewd.

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 02:16 AM

Heeee. Why am I thinking of the word "swashbuckling"?

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 03:43 AM

Swashbuckling, yes! He *ees* Despereaux!

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 05:21 AM

Norville, your tiny dances and delicacy are exSQUEEEsite! You have stole mah heart!

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 05:35 AM

I think it has all been said, but do note the one supraextended toe. This one is certainly exSQUEEEsite, I am quite in love.

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 05:57 AM

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 05:58 AM

*Zpie stands and claps so hard her hands hurt. Tears stream down her face. She is clearly moved by Norville's bravura performance


*She tosses him a teeny weeny bouquet

 |  Apr 23, 2007 at 06:38 AM

Oh, the tiny toes. . .
