The 13 Cutest Animals Of 2009

Look, I know that when Lindsay left Videogum (it is Christmastime, so we say things like “left”) the coverage of God’s little miracles dropped precipitously. While I am sure that this was upsetting to some of you, surely even the most upset can understand that it is virtually impossible for an 83-year-old man to keep up with the latest trends in tiny darlings. When I was your age, the closest we came to a YouTube of a Pygmy Gerboa was we had a couple of boars chained to sticks, and one time a diseased wolf came into the village. It’s just not my strong suit, and I have always been of a mind that if you cannot cover how cute tiny animals are well, then you should not cover how cute tiny animals are at all. It’s called Journalistic Integrity, probably, and I have it, maybe. In any case, this list of the Cutest Animals of 2009 is in honor of Lindsay Robertson, and a peace-offering to the cuteheads out there. It’s not like I don’t recognize NATURAL BEAUTY when I see it, it’s just that you can only type “awww” so many times before your keyboard wears out, and I need that “w” for typing “worst.”

After the jump, THE 13 CUTEST ANIMALS OF 2009!

This list is in order, determined by scientists. So if you think that some of the rankings are incorrect, you are wrong. And if there is an animal that you believe should be on this list that is not on this list, scientifically that animal was just not cute enough. Sorry. It’s not my fault! Blame this guy!
