As promised, Ellen DeGeneres had her wife, Portia de Rossi, on her show today to try to unravel the mystery of what kind of animal Portia spotted in their backyard. Ellen has been hinting that Portia is delusional all week, so today she stopped by today to defend herself, and to describe the animal, in detail, to a police sketch artist and a mammalogist.
Before I show you the video, I need to warm you up with some pictures of cute things. Trust me; if you don’t stretch beforehand, you’re going to pull a heart muscle. We’ll start with something that is cute to a regular degree and increase the adorableness in increments.
First, a beagle puppy.
And now a kitten — in a box of tissue.
And a happy elephant.
And a hedgehog. You guys, a baby hedgehog in a tiny cast!
And Portia de Rossi, laughing.
Still with me? Then you’re cleared to watch Portia’s appearance on Ellen:
I love that Portia knows the camera guy’s name and that she and Ellen are both ready to adopt one of those teacup pigs. Also, I love their obvious little inside jokes.
How’s your cute overload? You OK?
