Video of the Day: Really Tiny Tortoises Set to 'Walk Like an Egyptian'

Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo might just understand the Internet. First, they lock up the domain name Zoo.org. Now, to promote their program to save endangered Egyptian (aka Kleinmann's) tortoises, they've put out a video that has that pungent viral smell. Mostly that's because the tortoises are so adorable, even "adorbs" as the kids say. They can be as small as the tip of your thumb.

My guess is that your coworkers will be forwarding this to you any minute, so feel free to beat them to the punch.
