I once knew some hippies who tried to teach their dog to be a vegetarian. He ate their guinea pigs.
So I can’t help being surprised that the cat in this video doesn’t even try to eat the hamster, and the hamster isn’t the least bit afraid of the cat. We see more and more of this, now that just about everybody can post videos on youtube. And you know I’ve been wondering: Is God telling us something? I keep thinking these are glimpses into His Kingdom…
This hamster compilation leaves us with two perplexing questions.
How in the world are they able to run so fast that their legs become a blur, like in a carton? Imagine how fast you could run, if you could move your legs like that.
And how are they able to spin themselves around so much without ever seeming to get dizzy? I mean, really, if you were on a merry-go-round that was going around as fast as some of these hamsters spin their wheels–well, you get the picture.
For those who have trouble distinguishing between hamsters and human beings, this video should be helpful.
Imagine humans spinning around in a wheel as fast as hamsters spin. Now try to imagine them doing it without throwing up.
Imagine a pair of human legs moving as fast as hamsters can move their legs, so that they’re just a blur, like in a cartoon. How fast do you suppose you could run, if your legs could move like that?
Need we add that any human would be hard-put to stuff a whole corncob into his mouth and make it disappear?
There’s a guy on our street who self-identifies as a hamster. I think he belongs in Oy, Rodney.
Anyway, real hamsters are a lot cuter than that guy… And my IT guy has just arrived, so I must sign off for now. Enjoy the hamsters.
Hamsters sure are roly-poly, you’ve got to give them that. Maybe it’s because they’re always eating. But then you watch them running on the exercise wheel… Hey, how fast could a human being run if, like a hamster, he could move his legs and feet so fast that they turn into a blur? Only hamsters and cartoon characters can do that!
Hamsters are rodents, like rats and mice, so they should be pretty intelligent–right? Let us take intelligence for granted here.
Why, then, does this hamster walk backwards while he’s eating? He always winds up falling over something. This happens to human beings who walk backwards while they’re eating, too. But you’d think a hamster would figure out that he’s doing something wrong. But hamsters insist on doing things their own way.
Have you ever tried this–a nice sand bath? What–you’re not a hamster? I guess if you were, you wouldn’t be reading this. Anyway, see these hamsters go to town on a sand bath. Admit it–you really want to try it out yourself. They say Burt Lancaster used to take a sand bath five times a week… and he was famous.
Domestication can produce some unexpected interactions between animals. Normally a cat would eat a hamster. The hamster would know this, and try to avoid the cat. But not this cat, and not this hamster. Watch the fun!
You know what’s cool about hamsters? Like cats, they can pack themselves into spaces that’re smaller than they are. We clumsy humans have never mastered that. Hamsters can also be spun around and around and around without getting dizzy–and even cats can’t do that.
If you like little roly-poly critters who do things that aren’t always easy to explain, these hamsters are for you.
Some people think hamsters don’t do anything but sleep, fight with each other, and run on wheels. This video will prove them wrong.
Hamsters do a lot of different things. One of them, I hope, is to attract visitors to this blog today. We shall see.
