Teh Qte continues to sweep CNN

Unofficial Cuteporter Jeanne Moos of CNN asked New Yorkers the very important question:

Who do you think is cuter? A Baby Panda or Shiloh Jolie-Pitt?

Watch the video to see who won…


She also made reference to Cute Overload, w00t! And—[Gasp!] a site called UGLY OVERLOAD!? Uh oh!


Of course for your OFFICIAL What’s cuter questions, simply visit the CuteTracker, People.

    That has got to be the cutest news story EVAH! YAY MEG! Merry Christmas to all (peeps) and to all a good night.

  2. So, when’s CNN going to start linking to us on their front page, like The Onion?

  3. OK, I couldn’t help myself…I snuck over to look at the UGLY OVERLOAD site, I was just too curious. And I was pleasantly suprised. There are some UGLY animals on the site, but it is still fun to look through the pictures, not gross at all like I thought it would be. Although I think animals can be cute and ugly at the same time. Maybe the two sites can merge into a giant Cuteuglyoverload.com?? MMMM, maybe not.

    Awesome props for this site! Expect higher traffic volume…..I live in Atlanta and I’ve been watching Panda-cam daily – baby girl took her first steps yesterday!

  5. AuntieMame says:


    And it ends with Mr. Sleepy Floofypants taking a faceplant into the carpet!

    We’re hitting the bigtime, now.

  6. Hee hee – I sent this in too, although I probably wasn’t the only one. CO is famous!

  7. Yay! Congrats! Long live CO!

  8. i love the flying hams background!!

  9. Great spot on CNN! Congrats! And while the baby was a beauty, the panda won me over. 😉

  10. I’m a big fan of Cute Overload, and it’s great to see Cute Overload get a shout out, but is anyone else disturbed that this is news on CNN? Like they don’t have anything else to report on?

  11. Karen in Toronto says:

    I have enjoyed the Cute Overlord weblog a few times myself. And I know a few Cuteologists follow the site…TJ?

    Isn’t upated often but the pics are, well, interesting….


  12. Did anybody notice what “Shiloh Pitt” is an unfortunate spoonerism for?

  13. ShelleyTambo says:

    Oh god, aglee, that’s terrible! Hilarious, but terrible.Got a feeling mom and dad don’t know what a spoonerism is.

  14. ShelleyTambo says:

    Or maybe they do and that’s why it’s “Jolie-Pitt” not just “Pitt.”

  15. Sex, drugs and cute react in the same place in the brain??!! I’ll take CUTE!!!!

  16. Aglee/ShellyT — OMG, what a pile of jolly whatsit.

  17. Jeanne Moos rocks. I love her whimsical reports on bizarreness.

  18. i saw this on yahoo, i thought they were going to show the people’s reaction after finding out that the baby was shiloh.

  19. Is that reporter giving us the finger?!

  20. So I went to ugly overload(had to couldnt resist), and it has it’s cute point I have to admit. I really love the alpaca bit and the wet bat was cute I thought, but then again I think almost anything except potato bugs are cute. I thought this was a pleasant article. Congrads CO still like you the best!


    The baby’s beautiful, but she’s a famous individual (Though all human bebehs are cute! Remember this one? http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/08/learning_to_sno.html#comments ) but ALL panda bebehs are teh AWESOME!!!

    “Sex, drugs and cute react in the same place in the brain”?! Um … I’ll skip the drugs. My brain a splode.

  22. CNN was the only reason I found this website. And I’m glad I did!

  23. OMG. I had to google the word spoonerism, but when I did and then said the name out loud… I don’t think I’ve laughed that hard for some time. 😀
    Thanks, aglee!

    And Go Cute Overload!

  24. I found this on Yahoo too. Good work!

  25. Hi,
    I really enjoy reading your blog.

  26. Meg–is this really the first you’ve heard of Ugly Overload? I think of it as a twisted sort of Cute Overload tribute band!

  27. lost in cyberspace says:

    I was unable to get the link to work. Tried Explorer, Netscape, Firefox.

    CNN doesn’t like me 😦

    Please, some kind person post this clip to YouTube…

  28. Wow! Congrats for getting a nod from CNN that’s awesome. Has your traffic gone way up?

  29. That video was cool. double cool was that the panda won the vote. and top it off with the sleepy mcfluff doing the face plant, which…. even though i watched a gazillion times….i still laughed out loud/snorted coffee when they showed it.

  30. Congrats, Meg! You must be SO EXCITED!! I’d be doin’ the Snoopy Happy Dance and everything! And now my theory that C.O. stimulates seratonin in my brain has been confirmed. YEAH! Good thing, since I don’t drink or have sex. 😉

  31. YAY!!! CO recognized by CNN. WOOOOOOOTTTTTT!!!!

    And for the record, baby shiloh doesn’t stand a chance against a panda baby.

  32. It’s nice when CNN does a silly report on something, it makes up for the depressing news that’s usually on. Which I think is the reason why they have this reporter!

  33. I mean, the reason why they have this reporter is so she can do the silly news. 🙂

  34. The guy at the end – hot *and* appreciates cute baby pandas? Yes please.

  35. Ugly Overload rocks, and its moderator (Raging Wombat) is a decent fellow…CO is prominently featured on a sidebar as an antidote to the ugliness. 🙂

  36. Heh, yep, I saw this on CNN on Friday, was laughing at the clips/pix that I had just seen on CO. I thought it was similar enough to the previous story with the lions that was posted here that I didn’t know it was something new.

    LOL and yes, it does appear that the reporter is giving us the finger. THAT is HYSTERICAL.

  37. Yay!!! Meg is gonna be more exposed than ever!!! I hope something really lucrative comes from this. Meg makes me happy everyday when I open C.O. and she deserves the best!!!C.O. is better than some sex and running neck in neck with my chocolate addiction.
    Thanks Meg!!!!!

  38. Anyone who knows me, knows babies are not my thing. They do nothing for me. Even when they are a bit older, i still dont go ga-ga over them, so to speak…

    But even I have to admit that is one beautiful child. But oh yeah, the panda wins hands down. Any baby animal would.

  39. I too had to look up spoonerism (learn something new everyday, I say). Then I had to say the Shiloh Pitt spoonerism and now that is the only way I will ever hear it, poor thing!

  40. I was working out Friday night in the gym and looked up at the television up above and there it was! Cuteoverload.com totally all over CNN!!!! AND they were showing the sleepy puppy video. And I just sat there going “DAMN MEG! GOOD ONE!” Smiling as I was doing the elliptical. 🙂 GO MEG! GO MEG! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY! (Doin’ that silly stir dance)

  41. Goody Cute Shoes
    “Don’t drink don’t smoke – what do you do?
    Subtle innuendos follow,
    There must be something inside…”

  42. I totally saw them talk about the site on CNN and was stoked! I love this site!

  43. Anyone notice how the reporter is giving the camera the finger? 🙂

    Nice job Meg! 🙂

  44. Regardless of the definition of “cute”, this website is dedicated to the maternal instinct and therefore to women and children. If you tolerate pictures catering to the male intercourse instinct, you WILL lose the women & children — and become merely another PORN SITE.

  45. Best of luck convincing Meg of that, Timbo. Or me, for that matter. Or, y’know, anyone.
