“I’m Sorry, It’s a Cute Myocardial Infarction”

What if excess levels of cuteness were actually harmful to your health? Puppies would have to be banned from public places in fear that two or more might congregate. Babies would require warning tags, and painted William Shatner masks like the one Michael Myers wears in Halloween. Icanhascheezburger.com would quite literally make your fucking head explode.

Good thing being cute isn’t fatal, otherwise a trip to Bear and Bird Gallery (Upstairs at Tate’s Comics, 4566 N. University Dr., Lauderhill) tonight would end rather unfortunately for all involved. B&B’s latest show, “Cute Attack,” explores the realm of all things adorable from a slew of different angles: There’s cute-cute, furry-cute, cuddly-cute, innocent-cute, and even psychotic-cute. (Aww, what a gorgeous li’l bloody butcher’s knife!) Some of the work -- collected from over 20 artists including Helena Garcia, Terribly Odd, and Justin Degarma -- is your patent oil-on-canvas type. Other folks went so far as to stuff things. Tonight’s reception kicks off at 7 p.m., and it’s free, so you’ll have some moolah left to buy all the cute you want. Visit www.bearandbird.com.
