I do enjoy a Monday morning animal-based Cute or Creepy? post. Remember Crafting with Cat Hair? That set me up for the week, that did. And here we are again, wiping the sleep from our eyes and pouring hot, black coffee down our throats. Instead of sobbing into an Excel spreadsheet, consider today's burning issue: are these animal hangers by Stupell Industries cute or creepy?
In the words of Mrs Merton, let's have a heated debate! (Actually, could we make it quite gentle? It's still quite early. Ta.) First up, this Teacher Lab hanger. According to his badge, his name is P. Millheim. I love him. School would have been roughly six million times better if I'd had a Golden Labrador as a teacher.
Stupell Industries have reissued these wooden hangers after a 20-year hiatus. Painted by Annie Rehder Schultz, you can sometimes find the originals on eBay... but now, luckily for us, the whole range has turned up on Fab, including this dapper little pilot cat.
Meet Aarron Bouton, greyhound athlete. You might have seen him in action during London 2012.
Cowboy Cat! Yee-haw. Miao-haw!
Yes, it's a Basset Hound chef. We need more dogs cooking on telly. The Great British Bark Off, for example. I'd watch.
So, what do you reckon? I'm definitely cheering for Team Cute - I think these are brilliant (in fact, I already own this grey cat hanger). I concede that this Westie is a bit creepy, though. He looks like he's coughing all over us. Cover your mouth, Mister.
