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?
We saw a few seconds of this in last night’s video, but here’s the whole heroic effort. I defy any human being to match this feat! I mean, if you could just find stairs big enough.
My wife asked, “Why on earth is the hamster doing that?” “To get to the top of the stairs,” was all I could think of. But will he make it? Will he climb the entire colossal staircase? Stay tuned to find out.
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.
Short but superb! Watch the light-grey hamster who keeps hopping into the big dish. And then see what he does next. He is obviously doing it on purpose. I think he likes it.
Do these little guys have a sense of fun, or what?
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.
