ENV: Kiss me

I've long held (and argued for in the most inhospitable enclaves) that babies, every dang one of them, are just flat ugly. We only put up with them because they're helpless. I also maintain that everyone (and i mean this in the superficial sense, not the old "inside" sense) has a period of at least a few years, sometime between baby and middle age, when they are absolutely and truly beautiful.

So then, Rising Hegemon, pouring it on on critter/catter Friday, puts up this picture of a baby Aye-Aye Lemur (which means it's a primate so your own comparisons may be legit depending on which side you butter your bible). It certainly proves the first point -- adult Aye-Ayes are purty durn u-g-l-y-you-ain't-got-no-alibi. But Holy Smokes, this little one, well, it's frightening. When its short time of beauty is coming i don't know, but i think it might well be very brief. Thanks to Atrios at Eschaton for the link!
