Everyone's favorite "sea cow"

Is it just me . . . or did this Entertainment Weekly Popwatch article compare Jake Gyllenhaal to a manatee?

It's all about "cute characteristics" that we respond to. Both the Gyllenhaal and the slow, thick manatee have forward-facing eyes.

I can't believe I'm responding to this, adds "fuzzy limbs" to the criteria for advanced cuteness. And thanks for linking me, via popwatch, with a couple of noncute blogs: Bookslut and The Elegant Variation.

Still pondering the evolutionary advantages of helplessness and vulnerability.
