Can I name this cutest little felleh "Gerald McBoing Boing"?

Everything's just a bit better, knowing this little guy is boing-ing away out there somewhere. Just what a Monday needs!

He's awful sproingy for a Monday! I want a lamb!!!!!

OMG SoCalSis my exact thoughts too! Gerald McBoing Boing! When I was a kid (6 ish) I had an imaginary goat with that name. I think it was some kind of .. cartoon? song? from the 40s or something. Anyway. HERE HE IS in the floofffy flesh!

Mary (the first)

Gerald McBoing Boing is a Dr. Seuss creation, I believe. This guy? Clearly a japanese creation. How come when I jump up in the air I don't look nearly this cute?

Rubber Duck- are you related to Butter Duck, or is that ButterRumCake, Mayhaps? There must be a geneology in here some where.

Katrina
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 01:28 PM

I agree with Kris - for a Monday he's got an awful lot of pep!

Hey, how come the link to more posters doesnt work?
This little guy is just so Cute!

I took the hovertext at its word and printed the poster for my office. Let's all remind everybody that gravity is JUST a theory.

Awww LAmby Frolicks. Hehehehe Sproing is about the best word ever to discribe little baby lambs.. They can be just standing there and go Sproing. For no reason except for fun!

Oh, you KNOW some wack-job is going to get their knickers in a twist because those motivational posters are pro-freethinking, anti-religion...

Personally, I'm more of a http://www.despair.com/viewall.html kind of gal.

That little kid though is killer.

Contrary to popular belief, it is in fact possible to have faith and to think for yourself as well. I did think the posters were insulting, sorry.

kthnxbye
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 02:29 PM

Oh let's *not* get into the pro-vs-anti-religion thing. Talk about your off-topic comments! Notice, please, that the photo we posted has NOTHING to do with any of that.

Theo
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 02:34 PM

Ha. I think it's very cute and funny, but the poster is also clearly a little anti-creationist joke -- so telling kthnxbye not to "get into" that debate is a bit unfair.

[More like an anti-physics joke, from where I sit. And oh look, little floaty lamb! - Ed.]

MisDirection: I'll admit that I was put off (dare I say irritated?) by the obvious anti-religion bent of a majority of the posters (made by someone who is clearly very impressed with their own wit). However, that was because I was expecting more posters along the lines of the adorable Mr. McSproingersons - not to be beat over the head with "Religion sucks and so do you if you believe in God". So, I simply rolled my eyes and did not look at any more of the posters ... While I am not opposed to free thinking (everyone has a right to their opinion)- I was unaware that it was twin to anti-religious sentiment...

SkeeksMom
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 02:49 PM

@skeeksmom: I agree. I don't think that freethinking was always synomymous with hard line atheism, but it seems that way nowadays. Notammi- My comment was more directed at Mis Direction and the link than the fluffy sheep which I thought was funny.

lemme try this again... [ahem]

"Oh, look! Little floaty lamb!"

Theo
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 03:22 PM

awww. floaty lamb.

Michelle
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 03:24 PM

Part of the appeal here is the cute head tilt.

For my money, this lamby is cuter than the supposedly cutest kitten further down. I have re-loaded this lamby about ten times now.

Sproing Sproing Dr. Floaty McLamb Here. I just want you to sit back take a deep breath and picture your self in a green green meadow with clouds floating by in the sky and you are playing bounce with some other lambs. Now then In your mind go Sproing , Sproing and feel yourself float above the meadow.
There now don't you feel better, forget about rude people and work for a moment. You are just having fun with all your very best Lamby Friends.

Oh, what a terrible picture! Sheep are disgusting, smelly creatures with terrible manners. I THOUGHT CUTE OVERLOAD WAS ABOUT PUPPIES AND KITTENS, NOT GROSS FARM ANIMALS!!!1!

Well that's better.

 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 04:36 PM

@amy j: LOL!!!

I didn't see any of the other posters---is that where the religiously upsetting stuff is???!!! Otherwise, sorry I don't get it (but maybe 'cuz I'm not religious?)

Gail
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 04:44 PM

Awwww lambie! And I love the humor of this poster. The others on that site, I do think are borderline offensive. But who cares? A poster isn't national policy. If it offends you, don't look.

Arvay
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 05:11 PM

For the people irritated by the other "motivational" posters. Don't waste your energy trying to speak reasonably to those that feel faith and critical thinking are diametrically opposed. Trust me, it won't do any good.

Just kick back and enjoy the irony of them calling people of faith "close-minded" and "illogical."

Carrie
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 05:15 PM

I wish I hadn't looked at the other posters, because it spoils the joy of this one (which is also borderline offensive, taken in context with the rest of them). I will do my best to forget them and just ooh and ahh at the precious little lambie.

AuntieMame
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 05:34 PM

@ Nuffette Nuffersons
and @ THEO:

LOL! ROFLMAO!

EPIC WIN, both of you...

easily offended =
easily controlled which then = easily, uh...nevermind...
O look a floaty sheepie!

LOL @ Katrina!!!

Invisible trampoline? Yes, we've all been looking at too much ICHC. Hoverlamb actually looks like he's being beamed up by aliens.

chanpon
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 05:50 PM

Heh, I would love to go leaping/floating with this little lamb. Actually, I'd like to be the Little Bo Peep to a whole flock of hover-lambs. I would lead them in synchronized flying routines, and we'd be world famous and receive all kinds of money, which we'd donate to animal shelters (naturellement).

Melisma
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 05:54 PM

The Lamb is adorable, but the other posters, not so much.

Cincoflex
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 06:08 PM

D'awwww, what a sweetie. S/he looks kind of bewildered, all "lolwhut?" and...stuff.

Speaking of pa-sickies, I have a respiratory flu, and when I went to Walgreens for Tylenol at 4 this morning, I picked up a package of pa-sickies. I smiled and felt better immediately. sproing!

Awesome shot.

Amy - Damn it, you beat me to pa-sickie. It's going to be the 'bleen' of 2008, you mark my words.

Teho - I see it! I see the floaty little lamb!

foxy
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 06:44 PM

@chanpon - LOL, you are so right!

To those who are offended (I don't seem to be able to get to the site but I get the idea), just remember this is CO, and we are here for teh cute, and this lambie pie is cute!!

amy j
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 06:49 PM

Aw, a floaty lamb. Only God can make a lamb float... :-)

BTW, the YMCA poster was pretty darn funny, IMHO.

Person of Faith, a critical thinker, AND a sense of humor
 |  Apr 14, 2008 at 07:01 PM

Such a cutie.

For those who are offended why? The terminology of laws and theories in science are often misused. (not only by the religious either.)

The "attack" here is not against religion in and of itself. It's a poke at those who try to turn religion into science, and thus use bad science to prove a point.

I think these parodies exist out of frustration from bad science, bad history, and civil liberty issues. It's not religion, it's what you do with it.

And on a side note; Have a sense of humor about yourself. If your faith is as strong as you claim, some silly joke about it shouldn't phase you that much.

KISSES!
