I found myself wondering yesterday, as I watched pundits analyzing the latest polls: What if all news stations were to suspend election coverage up until the results were announced? What if, instead, they all made a pact to show us photos and videos of animals doing cute things?
Even if you're intently watching the election today (as we are), you may still enjoy a break. Let us offer you some websites as diversions.
1) Lil' Bub
We have trouble disagreeing with this cat owner's assessment that Lil' Bub, a painfully cute cat born with several genetic mutations, is "the most amazing creature on the planet."
More of a dog person? This website, in its own words, supplies "your favorite furry friends with a healthy dose of shaming," for the things they do that drive us owners crazy. (Honorable Mention: Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund. He never disappoints!)
3) Teh Cute
Sloths cuddling between blankets, a tiny monkey hanging out in a coffee cup, a kitten wrestling a bunny: those are just a few of the gems featured on this site, dedicated to cute animals.
Methinks that if the election doesn't go your way, you can post a picture of one of these cuties to express your disappointment.
...But if the pollsters got it wrong, maybe you'll use one of these pictures as your Facebook meme.
