Animals and children possess the power of inherent cuteness, a built in ador-ability that can soften the hardest hearts and elicit an "awww!" from those who aren't normally so free with their feelings.
With all that natural cuteness built into their tiny forms it would be crazy to give them more power over us, but that's what perfectly sane folks do every day when they dress their pets and babies up in food costumes!
Wrap a baby up in a burrito bunting and you've got a squee fiesta in the making
Likewise, if you dress dogs up like fast food that happy meal pack of hounds will spread smiles wherever they go!
It seems the power of the food costume works in conjunction with the cuteness level of the critter inside the costume to make them Taco Tuesday level irresistible
Heck, even a dog with a crazy look on its face looks crazy cute when they're in a taco costume
And dogs dressed like bananas look cutie-licious too, although they seem more slippery somehow
It's bananas how delightfully banana-y little dogs look in banana costumes, totally bananas!
Orange you glad I didn't say banana again?
Speaking of orange- carrots are crunchy orange root vegetables you dig out of the ground, and nutritionists totally dig seeing babies sporting carrot costumes
Although they'll settle for a toddler in a peanut suit if there aren't any baby carrots laying around
Dogs and babies get along like peas in a pod
So it's only fitting that they seem to share the same delicious sense of style
Although a dog would never be caught dead wearing a piece of fruit!
Tiny baby kids don't understand why grown up adults get such a kick out of seeing them all dressed up
But that doesn't stop them from hamming it up for the camera, and acting like little turkeys whenever someone whips out a camera
Of course, dogs don't know a thing about hamming it up, now do they?
Dogs are willing to go to great lengths to keep their humans entertained, even boiling like a lobster in the sun for the sake of spreading smiles
And even those who simply abhor wearing costumes will submit to some minor costuming to make their owner smile
Babies and toddlers, on the other hand, just hang around looking cute, laughing right along with their silly parents while clogging melting all adult human hearts around them
Unaware of the just desserts that await those who help keep grown up human folks entertained
Because babies don't discover how cute they are until they're all grown up, when they finally discover why their parents were always talking about wanting to eat them all up!
Hopefully these adorable images were enough to pull you out of the winter blues and slap a spring smile on your face, but if they didn't do the trick then you'll relate to this spring chicken!
