Tubes Anonymous

Everyone knows hedgehogs are prone to tubaholism. They can't help it. They get their little moist nosicles wedged into a toilet paper tube and they CAN'T STOP.


This one's a goner.


Quentin and Jessica D., you should really get some help. Just sayin'.

That second picture cracks me up so much!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:33 AM

LOL! Love the little hedgie's exasperated expression in the second pic. His cute little toesies say it all!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:34 AM

"ya, i'm just gonna plop mahself down heah and enjoy the tunnel-vision view"

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:34 AM

Oh yes. That CO video with the Sonic music had a hedgie loving a tube as well. It's as natural as cats going for tight spaces.

"Oooh, I geeve up! ;("

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:40 AM

Hysterical! That's his best giraffe impression. I love him sitting on his tush just totally at a loss as to what to do, but thinking ooh the clouds look totally tubular through this thing!

Holy Cuteness

Does the Boxhab facility have a Tubaholics Anonymous group?

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:44 AM

I was just about to inquire about tubehab...I know some gerbils who need to go.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:50 AM

I'd love to see a view from the other end of the tube--a tiny nose and a couple of beady eyes peering up out of the darkness ...

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 08:54 AM

You can almost hear him saying, "Oh, bloody hell!"

Total exasperation. Snoopy little guys.

By sheer coincidence, "White Punks on Dope" was recently voted the official anthem of Hedgehog nation.

(Anybody? Anybody? Oh, here...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Tubes).

Re the pics: somewhere, Salvador Dali is smiling and sawing a tuba in half with a ham sandwich.

I just about peed myself laughing at the second pic. Priceless!

And The Tubes rock. (Well, at least they did 20-mumble something years ago)

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:38 AM

LMAO @ Beth's "Oh bloddy hell!"

PERFECT caption! LOL

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:39 AM

My hedgie isn't allowed to have tubes in his cage anymore, because he always leaves them in his water bowl and it becomes a wet, soggy mess. But outside...man are they great! Jsut like a cat in a basket of clean laundry, the pig will always stick his nose in a tube!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:52 AM

Awright, who's just seen There Will Be Blood...two quotes in two days? :)

I would *love* to see what this little guy looked like from the other end of that tube.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:04 AM

What IS it with these little dudes? Hi-Larious!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:05 AM

His vids on Youtube are adorable too! I hope this link works and he's the quentin I think he is..

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:07 AM

Lol.. that 2nd pic is hilarious!!
I can totally hear it saying w/ an echo in the room...
"A little help please?" ehehehe I want one!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:07 AM

if you ignore the feets, I think the second picture looks like a funny little bird with its beak in the air :)

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:27 AM

How can you ignore the feet?? They're precious!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:33 AM

He may be exasperated, but better to have your head in a tube than your head up your...

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:37 AM

BTW, I loves him!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:37 AM

People, please! Tubaholism is a serious problem. This obviously requires an intervention. Call for help. Call a doctor. Heck, call Dr. Phil!

Don't laugh at the afflicted. They deserve our help, not our humor.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:42 AM

AHHHHH...zees teleescopersons allows moi to see zee reengs of Saturn so cleeeeeeerly!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 10:48 AM

OMG!! The hedgie on his tushie is classic!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 11:11 AM

We all know the Internet is a SERIES OF TUBES, so it's obvious this little guy is just trying to get on the 'net!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 11:14 AM

My Buns gets paper tubes all the time. When they're brand new, he gnaws blind because he can't stick his whole head into a tube. I "gave" him an old wrapping paper tube for Christmas though. Wrapped it up in a bow and everything. He looked at it with big, wide eyes. And he ignored it because it was too heavy to throw. :-P

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 11:22 AM

With me it wasn't a hedgy. I once had a cat who loved to stick her head in things and get them stuck...or I think she loved it since she did it ALL the time...lol.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 11:31 AM

It's okay, hedgie, your not alone! I wonder if they think they can shrink down like a mouse or if they just don't think they're that fat. :D

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 11:42 AM

McDonalds Germany announced that they will change the design of their McFlurry icecream cups, because several Hedgies died after slurping the dee-liicious icecream. They could not free themselves because they stuck in the plastic ring cap, and died long and painful :(

Now the hole will be smaller, so they cant get in so deep anymore. it took McD two years and some dead hedgehogs for this decision.

lol @ him sitting on his little prickly behind, with the tube sticking up. Pictures like this convince me that someday, I must have a hedgehog.

A thinker
 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 12:24 PM

I feel like this almost every day of my life!! hehehe

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 12:47 PM

pleez-a no squeez-a da charmin

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 02:14 PM

Aaaw! cute! looks just like my grandhedgie aka as Stompy! Just adorable!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 03:01 PM

ohmygooness that McD's story makes my heart hurt

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 04:27 PM

And, that second pic looks like he's surrendered to the tube...

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 04:29 PM

@Beth: ROFL!!!! "Oh, bloody hell!!" That's it exactly!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 04:40 PM

So funny!!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 05:04 PM

What are they looking for

Christmas Wedding 2008
 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 06:06 PM

My old hedgehog would do this. The thing is, he'd fret and run around and you'd take the tube off for him - and then he'd immediately shove his head back in it. A serious problem indeed.

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 09:02 PM

I agree..my hedgie would do the same thing..and as soon as you "rescued" him, he'd do it again..silly critters!

 |  Feb 26, 2008 at 11:34 PM

Shhh... he thinks he's playing the didgeridoo.

 |  Feb 27, 2008 at 02:42 AM

Have you seen this King Charles doing tricks. Look like the little hedgehog has some way to go...

 |  Feb 28, 2008 at 04:49 AM

Oh, I think we can do better than "Oh bloddy hell!" That second picture deserves a caption in the style of www.Despair.com !

 |  Feb 28, 2008 at 01:07 PM

I brought this into my local pet store ... the clerk promptly gave the desk-ham a paper-towel tube!

Pushers everywhere, aah!
