This Week’s Time Suckers: cute cute!

Until yesterday, I had never been to any site that exists solely for rating pictures.  I know lots of people who go to sites rating how hot people are and other variations, but I’d never had any interest.  Then I happened upon these two sites:

Rate My Kitten

Rate My Puppy

This is how I like my animals: two dimensional and unable to jump on me.  They are awfully cute.  Both sites work exactly the same: people upload adorable pictures of their pets, and other people rate them on a scale of 1-10.  I’m not sure why it’s addictive, but it is.  I would never just sit there and look at random pictures of kittens and puppies, but these sites tweak that a little bit by feeding my obsessive need to share my opinion, even if my opinion is just getting folded in with ratings from thousands of others.  Too cute!

But whatever you do, do not click on Rate My Poo.  Yup, it’s exactly what you think it is.  Trust me, do not go there.
