Will someone please overdub this video with jokes

This video is NEEDS a brilliant person to overdub it with TWO perfectly-timed jokes, leaving space for the prairie dog to ‘laugh’. Check it out, you’ll see what I mean.

A free, express-shipped Cute Overload calendar to the best one! Provide your YouTube link in the Comments!

Alexandra J.My teeth are chattering with anticipay-shons.



  1. I know one or two CO regulars who DARN WELL BETTER heed teh call. a’HEM.

  2. It’s like a cartoon!!

  3. I can’t wait for this! {rubs hands in anticipation, wishes for video skillz}

  4. Does NTMTOM qualify? Cuz if he does, I’m putting my money on him!

  5. That was the highest pitched laugh I ever heard! Like supersonic! I also think that doggie is stoned because after each laugh, it was obvious he immediately forgot what he was laughing at.

  6. biscuithead says:


    /sorry, I just don’t see the little critter as laughing.

  7. He is clearly generating lulz.

  8. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m with misscrisp, can’t wait and wish I knew how to do it myself (not that I am able to think of anything very clever.) This guy totally needs a reason to laugh. Twice !!

  9. Mary (the first) says:

    And besides (haha to y’all) I already HAVE my CO calendar! So there!!

  10. Aw, carp! I don’t know how to, um, borrow footage from youtube.

    Carp needs schooling.

  11. OOooh, if someone can do the audio production and editing, I can do the writing!!!!! I already have calendars so you can get the prize. Post a comment on my blog and I’ll send you an e-mail.

  12. Encouraging reader participation in democratic media…You’re becoming Ze Frank! 🙂

  13. I should mention: I’m using The Vista (don’t laugh) and Windows MovieMaker 6. I’m not helpless with a computer, but I do go blind when I try to sort through online tech forums, so if anybody knows how I can.. borrow.. that video in a MovieMaker-compatible format, please let me know.

    My attorney assures me that this is fair use, by the way. Plus, he makes a fantastic martini. So nyah!

  14. Yeah, I tried to make one quickly so my idea wouldn’t be taken, lol. Here is the link, hopefully it will be done processing so you guys can see it.

  15. Where’s Pyrit?? I’m looking for one of those delightful verses we used to get all the time. Come out, come out, Pyrit, come back from the whirlpool at the End of the World!

  16. i’m really looking forward to this contest!!

    what a cutie. looks AND a good sense of humor!

  17. My dog’s got no nose!

    How does he smell?



  18. Mary (the first) says:

    :: waiting for Berthaserv and/or Patito to come up with something stellar! ::

  19. Alison, NICELY done!

    All the jokes I know are either too dirty or too historically oriented to work. Bummer.

  20. Mary (the first) says:

    I didn’t hear any jokes on Alison’s link. Just strange laughing. Did I miss something?

  21. So cute! His laugh is so high pitched, my dog woke up, sat up and was looking around like “WTF?!

  22. I knows, I knows says:

    “Guess what? Chicken butt!!!” (ha ha ha ha)

    Guess what? Chicken butt!!!

    (ha ha ha ha)

  23. Could the brillian person possibly be Teho???

    [Remember, I work here, *and* I already have one of the ’09 calendars, so I’m doubly disqualified… – Ed.]

  24. *awkward silence*


    *awkward silence*


    Having a prairie dog laugh eeeevilly was enough of a joke for me.

  25. What time is it when an Elephant sits on a fence?

    Time to get a new fence.

    Ha ha, comic genius here….plagarising from a book I had as a kid.

  26. debg, do you have one that’s both excessively dirty *and* historically oriented?

    Meanwhile, I found a totally dreamy file converter and it is ON.

  27. That was clever as well as unexpected — good work! (… and bravo CuteOverload for prompting the response ;D )

  28. Ooops, forgot to mention that my comment was directed toward Alison’s 😀

    Also, I’m looking forward to seeing what other ideas people have for this.

  29. Mary (the first), the joke is the “strange laughing” to which you refer 😀

  30. noisy critter o.o
    brand new kittuns (1 half weeks old!) in my house the marmalade one is really noisy but his tuxedo sister just does silent meows! confusing yes?

  31. warrior rabbit says:

    What’s brown and sticky?

    A stick.

  32. HOW!



    I picture the cute little prairie dog interspersed as the laugh track in the video of the Tina Fey does Sarah Palin sketch on SNL!

  33. This is just so funny! I can’t see any joke that would be worthy of this video. It’s better by itself! Prairie dogs are the cutest. Wait *eats words* cats are the cutest. But prairie dogs are waay up there!

  34. I could see the thing with super-slowed-down sound going MWAH-HA-HA!

  35. OMG Alison, that’s awesome!! Now if you could make his eyes glow red when he laffs……


  36. scooterpants says:

    try this-
    A Montana Cowboy’s wife came home just in time to find her husband in bed with another woman. With super-human strength, borne of fury, and cutting calves, she dragged him down the stairs, out the back door, and into the tool shed out back of the barn. She put his tally-whacker in a vice, and then secured it tightly and removed the handle. Next she picked up an old carpenter’s saw. The banged up Cowboy was terrified, and hollered, ‘Stop! Stop! ‘You’re not gonna cut it off with that rusty damn saw, are you?’

    The wife, with a gleam of revenge in her eye, put the saw in her husband’s hand and said, ‘Nope. I’m gonna set this old shed on fire, and go to town for a cold beer. You do whatever you want.”

    maybe no huh????

  37. (Hey, the Bronx Zoo is advertising on CO!! How cool is that?!)

    (I work right across the street at the botanical garden.)

    (Sorry for the digression but I was so excited to see their ad!)

  38. THAT’s who the kitteh from earlier was chattering too!

  39. @Alison: “THEN YOU SHALL PERISH” indeed! Well-done, and bizarre…A+

  40. So freaking cute :3

  41. I would like the calandar, but school owns my life entirely too much to actually figure out how to use a computer beyond CO browsing and word processing:


    A Dog dressed as a cowboy walks into a saloon and says, “I’m looking fer tha man who shot mah paw…”


    What do you get when you drop a piano down a mining shaft?

    A Flat Miner! Get it? A FLAT MINOR!

  42. LOOK at that precious wiggly nose!!!

    A horse walks into a bar. The bartender says “Why the long face?”

    A priest, a minister, a rabbi, a dog, a blonde, a golfer and a penguin walk into a bar . . .

  43. PS He could sing
    “We represent the Lullabye League,
    the Lullabye League,
    the Lullabye League . . .”

  44. @Alison, you are full of win!

  45. OK, here’s my attempt. I figured the little guy was enjoying another prairie dog’s stand-up comedy set…

  46. waffles'momma says:

    Nice, Mike 🙂

  47. warrior rabbit says:

    Great, Mike! LOL.

  48. Total lols!

  49. Brilliant Mike, love the ending!

  50. Warrior Rabbit, that is one of my favorite jokes!

  51. Good tries – for those who did. This actually doesn’t look as easy to dub as it is made out to be in this post.

  52. “Hang on, coyote”


  53. rad_cuteologist says:

    Nice one Mike!
    Things like this are one of the many reason I love the internets.

  54. hah great two entries so far!
    I like Allisons more though, the evil laugh rocked

  55. HEATHCLIFF!!!!

  56. Mike – that. was. AWESOME!

    But I really want to know the punchline for the beaver and otter walk into a bar joke….

    Alison – I liked yours, too!

  57. I’ve got the little chappie watching the world’s smallest man with the woman with the world’s longest legs:


  58. Mike, good stuff! Perfect timing and funny to boot! 😀

  59. Ok – here’s a good joke 😀

    A priest, a rabbi and a Nazarene minister and a penguin walk into a bar…

    The bartender looks up and says “What is this… some kind of joke?”

  60. According to YouTube’s help menu, it is not possible to download the videos to your computer. So how are y’all doing it????? : )

  61. wait a sec — Joel??? DUDE!



    (…though, heh, I must say that the scribbly nob version probably isn’t going to end up as a proper Cute Overload post, unless I miss my guess)

  62. warrior rabbit says:

    Nicole, there are things like YouTube Grabber out there for your amusement.


  63. Joel…pretty sick, as I would expect. Wonderful!

  64. Joel! YAY Rather good rocks my socks. I especially love the Zeppelin Viking kittens and Dirigible Gerbils. ^_^
    Ah good times.
    Highlarrious. Crab of ineffable wisdom would approve.

  65. This is all brilliant, but I think the raw footage of the cute little supersonic giggler is best of all.

  66. If you have a mac, there’s a youtube video that will give you instructions about how to save youtube videos to your computer. You’ll need to download iSquint from apple website (it’s free) and that will allow you to save the file as an mp4 so you can run/edit it on your computer and also put on your ipod.

  67. Okay, here’s my submeesh!
    My kids are getting in on the act telling jokes!

  68. LOL, Nicole – I like yours the best so far! Your kids did a great job! 🙂

  69. All righty. I did one too.

    From the YouTube notes… “Don’t worry, I’m not trying to hork a calendar; I already have one. This is just for fun. (I know the audio sync isn’t perfect. The upload processing always monkeys around with it a little, and anyway, YOU try lip-syncing a prairie dog. THPPPPPPPPT)”

  70. I DID NOT DO THIS ONE… but it looks like somebody else had a similar idea:

    (that French guy has more patience and practice than me, too)

  71. Oh man…

    Same guy. Geesh.

  72. Nicole – I like yours too! The kids voices match the CUTE!

  73. “Why did the Elephant cross the road….???”

    *Wait for it*

    “It was the chicken’s day off!!!”

  74. Wow, that guy is an amazing editor!!

  75. warrior rabbit says:

    LOL at the Shimmy Shake one. He seems to have been going through a prairie dog period. I also like the Atari Hamster Riot version.

  76. What I like about Nicole’s is that the p-dog takes just a split second to “get” the joke, like it’s polite Aunty P-Dog who wants to be sure the joke is over before she laughs at her adorable nieces and nephews.

    Joel’s, btw, might be considered NSFW.
    [OK yes, but in a cartoonish way… – Ed.]

  77. So far I liked Theo’s, and the ending to Mike’s is hilarious, about the coyote, except we love coyotes due to The Daily Coyote. It was still funny though.

  78. Scooterpants…I loved that joke!!!!

    Mike and Nicole…great submishes. In my book you are tied for first.

    Although I have to say the little guy by himslef is pretty darn funny!

  79. Oops, that should be himself, not himslef. That’s what I get for trying to type with a headache.

  80. Jessica Rabbit says:

    Long time listener, first time caller, but I just had to pop in here to say how funny these are. I must admit I laughed the hardest at the evil laugh- it was just so random.

  81. Wocka-wocka! These are just great!!1

  82. I know I submitted, but SERIOUSLY, that crasse guy should win zees theeng. Even though he didn’t actually submit it, and therefore wouldn’t have an address for the calendar to be sent to. BUT STILL.

  83. Alison, that guy’s stuff is funny, but I still like yours best! Unexpected, yet nice and simple.

  84. crazyweinerdoglady says:

    Holy crap, the Shimmy Shake killed me. Other than that I like the EVIL LAUGHHHH!

  85. BeardofPants says:

    Alison & Joel’s FTW!

  86. catloveschanel says:

    I heard this from Tex originally, so try it with a Texan accent.

    A man runs into the vet’s office carrying his dog, screaming for help.
    The vet rushes in,examines the still, limp body and after a few moments, tells
    the man that his dog is dead.
    The man demands a second opinion. The vet goes into the back room and comes out with a cat and puts the
    cat down next to the dog’s body.
    The cat sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, poking and sniffing
    the dog’s body and finally looks at the vet and meows.
    The vet looks at the man and says,
    “I’m sorry, but the cat thinks that your dog is dead, too.”
    The man is still unwilling to accept that his dog is dead.
    So, the vet brings in a old black Labrador.
    The lab sniffs the body, walks from head to tail, and finally looks at
    the vet and barks.
    The vet looks at the man and says,
    “I’m sorry, but the lab thinks your dog is dead too.”

    The man, finally resigned to the diagnosis, thanks the vet and asks
    how much he owes.
    The vet answers, “$650.”
    “$650 to tell me my dog is dead?” exclaims the man.
    “Well,” the vet replies, “I would only have charged you $50 for my
    initial diagnosis.
    The additional $600 was for the cat scan and lab tests.”

  87. johnnyjohnny says:

    Joel, you bad bad boy! I LOVE it!

  88. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m so sorry I didn’t come back here sooner to see everyone’s prairie dog submishes! I had to hold back an LOL here at work!

  89. All of the videos are great (although not so much a fan of Joel’s as it kills the Qte, IMHO–sorry) but that Shimmy Shake one is amazing!

  90. I don’t know how to do it on a youtube link but I think this is as cute as it gets….ready?
    “Hey Marge, Whadda you call it when I send you to the lumber yard?”
    “Gopher wood!!…..”
    (insert sonic teehee’s)
    “Get it??? GO-FER WOOD!!!
    (more sonic teehee’s)

    Do I get a calendar? (hopeful look)

  91. I’ve lived around prairie dogs before and never ever heard or saw one like this. I’ve seen the ones like those at wikipedia:

    Is this perhaps a ground squirrel? I won’t begin to guess exactly which species it might be…

  92. I vote for Nicole, the French guy (Another One Bites The Dust is waaayy funnier than the Shimmy Shake, but I think it was too long) and Theo. I know Theo can’t play and the French guy didn’t enter, so that leaves Nicole! Yay, Nicole! And, Yay, Nicole’s kids!

  93. I vote either this one:

    or this one:

    The last one was HILARIOUS! I thought it very original. 🙂

  94. Ooo, cool idea. Will come back later with popcorn and view vids. Is there a deadline?

  95. Very cute joke catloverschanel.


  96. Gee! Thanks for the votes, guys!
    Yeah, the french guy is good. Wish I knew how to do that kind of stuff. I have ‘favorited’ “Another One Bites the Dust” – it’s just too much!

  97. You want two jokes for this prairie dog? I went to PRAIRIE Home Companion’s website. Garrison’s got jokes.

    1.”Hey, Ole,” says Sven, “did ya hear about the story on the news about a kangaroo that escaped from the zoo?”
    “Is that so?” asks Ole.
    Sven replies, “Yah. Turns out it was only a guy with his shoelaces tied together.”

    (Prairie dog: chitter, chitter, chitter!)

    2. What do you get when you cross a rhinoceros with an elephant?
    An animal that doesn’t forget how horny it is.”

    (Polite prairie dog: shifty-eyed chitter, chitter, chitter!)

    (Prarie dog ponders second joke a moment, “gets it”, lightbulb goes on, dives into his burrow for some alone time)

  98. catloveschanel- very funny!

  99. I vote for Mike!

  100. [villain hands]
    My second unit flew to Montana this morning for some location reshoots.
    We’ll screen a rough cut for the focus group tonight.

    A friend of mine who works for Dollhouse is donating custom made shoes for my film. Is that going to be a problem?

  101. :very afraid:

  102. elle doubleyou says:

    I love Theo’s!

  103. mike wins.

    hands down.

  104. I’m with jonathan.
    Mike frakkin’ OWNS this one.

  105. I posted my video URL on the voting thread, but here it is again, commentroversy-free:
