I went to the Minnesota Zoo today and had a revelation: God made the entire animal kingdom cute. Everything is cute! Even the grizzlies are cute as they straddle a huge log and lazily lie around with nothing special to do, their huge bodies draping over the sides of the log and their limbs dangling, their huge snouts sticking out in front of their faces. And even giant exotic fish are cute.
Of course, there are people who have been deceived by this and gotten too chummy with wild animals and gotten killed in the process. But there has to be a reason God made everything cute.
Maybe it was God's way of putting man in charge of the animal kingdom. It's why we are prone to become the ultimate "parents" of animals.
OK, KD reminds me - there are animals that are not so cute! Snakes are still not cute, no way. But most of the zoo animals were cute, and some are so ugly they're cute too.
