What Saturday morning time-waster could possibly top one of our favorite websites, Cute Things Falling Asleep?

We can’t think of one (well ... maybe Cute Overload). Time Magazine says the website ‘might be the most adorable time-waster since Animal Planet began hosting puppy sporting events.’ From the Time article:


As a comedy writer, Nick Malis (whose credits include Curb Your Enthusiasm and Mind of Mencia) has a lot of downtime. He began posting videos of sleepy cute things in 2006, but seemingly nobody took notice until a month ago. More and more websites started linking to him, and then came the news outlets. ‘CNN called, and suddenly I found myself on Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer,’ says Malis. ‘I was like, ‘Do you realize there’s a war going on?’’

If drowsy ducklings and polar bear cubs are good enough for Blitzer, they’re good enough for us.
