In the late 1920s, somebody at Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer had a really strange idea: making short comedy films poking fun of recent films by replacing all the human characters with trained dogs in clothes. Here are all nine episodes made between 1929 and 1931 known as the "barkies."
Posted by Brockzilla on Flickr. I'm glad there are kids growing up now who see robots and think, "Friend." (Let's hope they never meet Skynet.)
Photographer Roeselein Raimond is basically the ruler of the cuteocracy when it comes to wildlife photography. Sure, it's easy to make foxes look adorable — though these two are exceptionally, overwhelmingly huggable — but she also manages to make everything from snails to wasps look cute too. Plus, do not even get…
Creative people are self-obsessed assweasels. And you can never really love someone else — you just love the fake version of them that you create in your head. Love is really the process of your ego attempting to crush and neutralize the ego of your object of affection.
Sometimes a good picture — a photograph, for example, or even a detailed drawing — can mean the difference between scientific progress and scientific stagnation.
Sometimes you just have to dress kittens up in tiny little monster and insect outfits and send them into space. It's for the good of science fiction as an art form, and let's face it, the good of us all.
Oh, how I love the Onion! It constantly creates fantastic nightmare scenarios detailing how the world as we know it could be destroyed—or in this case, how a cute piglet could take down the Internet.

China launched its first crewed space mission in 2003, but its dreams of people in space stretch back much farther. A recurring image of that interplanetary future: chubby-cheeked toddlers cruising through space with puppies and bunnies.
Have you ever seen anything sweeter than these two mini Star Wars cosplayers? They actually out-cute the sneezing baby panda. [Buzzfeed via 9gag.com]
The Association for the Advancement of Artificial Intelligence (AAAI) just met in Georgia, and some new photos show off the incredible diversity of your future robot overlords.
Meet Chuffy the mouse and his cyborg guinea pig time machine. This taxidermy creation is a BoingBoing find, and it captures the best of a new scifi subgenre I hope will soon catch on: Techie Cutie Creepy. Has Pokemon already been there?
In the future, we will not say "OMG Ponies1!!" We will say "OMG Bionic Puppiez1!!" And here is the first bionic puppy to ever ascend to the top of the cuteocracy. Hope the puppy was born without front legs, so her human companion, an orthotist, built her these wheeled legs out of model airplane wings and wheels. The…
Yeah, I said cuteness to the max, do something about it. This is a pair of stereo speaker shaped like pigs. The nostrils are the actual speaker parts and the rest is just cuteness. They run off of AAA batteries and each pig "oinks" 1.6W. It has a standard audio input jack, so plug 'em into whatever you want. $29.
