The Capybara Family Hits the Mall

"OK, kids, we've got a busy day planned.  From eight until eleven, we hit the department stores, and I'll need you running interference for me at the sale tables.  Next, I need to stop by Just Hammers and get something for your dad.  At noon, we stop at the food court, and then you're all getting your picture taken with Santa; try not to freak out like last year, Timmy.  All right, people — let's move out!"

They're a lean, mean shopping MACHINE!

Try to stay out of their way, Brinke G.

I dare say this falls under matchingks as well, though that seems to be unavoidable.

I wonder what they do when people say "you look just like your dad"?

LOVE these guys!
Leetle eeeeears + twitchy schnozzles.

CO could always do with more Capybara pics.
And more monkeys.
And more mice.

Ok, I'll shut up now.

You okay Theo?

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 02:43 PM


I love capybaras. :D

Now, we just need more maras and chinchillas, and I'll be the happiest camper in the world. :)

Love those dainty feets!

Foot court?

[D'oh!! That should have read "food court," obviously. I feex-ed eet. -- Mike]

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 02:51 PM

I love their determined little expressions :)

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 02:57 PM

Wow, do they look determined! I'd definitely steer clear if I saw that group marching through Macy's lookin' like that. I wonder where mom's hiding the credit cards.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 02:57 PM

Teho, are you into children's books by any chance?

[Bingo! You've earned a gold star and a ticket to Bill Peet's Wump World. - Ed.]

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:04 PM

I won't go to Macy's any more more more,
There's a family of capybaras at the door door door.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:08 PM

PS They do look like wumps, don't they?

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:09 PM

Foot court? Well, they do seem to be short on shoes...

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:26 PM

ChibiKitten, don't forget tapirs... they are severely underestimated in the cute department!
Click my name to see what I mean!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:31 PM

YAY!!! more capybaras! more more! (claps hands)

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:51 PM

They all have the same expression...they are on a mission!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 03:59 PM

Oh my god....capybaras! I mean....capybaras! I love capybaras. They're the coolest. Thank you, thank you, thank you, CO for giving me capybaras. I shall now retire to a fainting couch with my smelling salts and loosen my corset.

I love the prancingk lead foots!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 04:11 PM

Okay, what's a "wump"?

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 04:34 PM

Looks like guinea pigs with long legs.

I knew Theo spent a profitable childhood! Thank your caregiver and thank your librarian and thank Bill Peet.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 04:38 PM

This is why I do my Christmas shopping before Thanksgiving and/or online...
Though if all holiday shoppers were as cute as these guys, it might not be so bad... ^_^

OMG. My mom had that same expression when we entered Belk's today! That's totally frightening.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 05:05 PM


 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 05:26 PM

Yes, they look a bit like guinea pigs, but in fact they are HUGE, often weighting over 160 pounds.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 05:26 PM

That doesn't look like shopping, it looks like a military Special Ops reconnaisance mission!!

Holiday shopping, military mission; to-may-to, to-mah-to...

It's like they're doing the "cool walk"...

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 05:53 PM

those capybaras are serious business. look at their eyes, all "we will do what we want, WHEN we want!", even the one in the front.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 06:03 PM

@fish eye no miko: You are so right!!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 06:04 PM

It's okay, Timmy. I never liked getting my picture made with Santa, either.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 06:24 PM

This picture= so cute!
The caption= hilarious!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 06:27 PM

Oh A sad note, A Wall-Mart employ was killed today by the rush of Chrismas shoppers, they aren't sure how. Do you think seeing these guys coming could have do it?

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 06:28 PM


(Sorry, just had to say that again.)

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 06:34 PM

I think these dudes were deleted from that final battle scene in the last Lord of the Rings movie...

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 07:05 PM

I just looked at the Wump book cover.
A wump looks like a cross between a mouse + Jimmy Durante.

They're doing a "cool walk"?
Like that "Reservoir Dogs" scene where the guys are strutting down the street?

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 07:13 PM

Whatever kind of day I've had, NTMTOM's posts always
cheer me up.

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 07:16 PM

Oh, so it's not black friday it's Capybara Friday!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 07:28 PM

Oh jeez those poor lil' capybaras will get trampled : ( They need to find a nice tall person to give them a piggy back ride.

lol, that reminded me of meerkats. cute little things!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 11:09 PM

Wow they look intent!!

 |  Nov 28, 2008 at 11:42 PM

Cute post and Wumps but unfortunate timing. Hope Ntmtom posted this before the Walmart stampede hit the news.

Today is Don't Buy Anything Day, over here. Greed is what killed the poor Walmart employee and greed is what got our world into its present fix... OK, I'm off the soapbox now.

Cute wumpybara family.

 |  Nov 29, 2008 at 04:56 AM

I like to think if the crazed crowds saw this bunch coming, they'd have parted like the Red Sea. All hail the capybara clan!

 |  Nov 29, 2008 at 05:33 AM

Hey, I've eaten those!

They're way cuter than tastier, though, so I don't recommend them as food. It's better to just take pictures.

 |  Nov 29, 2008 at 06:21 AM

The beadiness in the mom's eye suggests their plan is quite devious. Stay out of their way!

 |  Nov 29, 2008 at 07:23 AM

are these lemmings?

 |  Nov 29, 2008 at 09:15 AM

capybara san


 |  Nov 29, 2008 at 09:44 AM

Pooh -- greed is what got the *economy* into its current fix. That's not the whole enchilada, y'know.
