Dear Cute Overloaders,
   I was going through some really old posts on and found a picture of an adorable college boy with the SAME stuffed beaver as i have crammed in his rack! Needless to say, I felt compelled to take my own beavers n’ racks college kids edition photo. Enjoy!

Sasha V (& "Beav" . . .i wasn’t the most original child)

Please see exhibit A:


And Exhibit: Beav


What can I say, a match made in heavs. [clapping hands in ‘done!’ motion]

    umm hmm. O’tay.
    whens the weddins????
    pleeze to send invite ASAP so’s I can save up for the es’special gifffft.

  2. Huh huh huh… stuffed beaver….

  3. is it me, or do they kinda look like brother and sister?

  4. Sasha, you can show your beaver around here anytime you want. Nothing like a pretty girl putting her beaver on display.

    Even if it does look a bit old and well-loved.

    I’m sorry, there’s no way to discuss this without sounding vulgar.

  5. Is that a tiddy beaver? An upgrade of the tiddy bear (tiddy bear 2.0) to cover more surface area?

  6. johnnyjohnny says:

    No turning back now! We need to put together one of those dating comcatibility surveys and get a dating site up ASAP.

  7. If you recall, though, the dude’s name is Joe and he’s taken. Or he was, at least, when last we heard from him.

    Still, an old squashed well-loved stuffed animal is as good a basis for building a social network as any. Better, in fact, than lots of others I could rattle off.

  8. Everyone involved in this post is adorable! Beaver, boy, girl, Meg… [gives the world a snorgle]

  9. TheBladeRoden says:

    Ah ha! That guy is taken eh? I guess I’ll have to buy my own beaver doll to win Sasha’s heart.

  10. There is almost a family resemblance between the two (I mean the humans… obviously the beavers are related). Eyes, nose, shaped of the face…
    Possibly they are long-lost siblings/ half siblings and the love of stuffed beavers is somehow genetic?

  11. First of all that is the cutest stuffed beaver evah! I want my own stat!

    Secondly, how adorable are these two together? I hope he’s not taken cuz I smell a love match! ;D

  12. I am willing to sign up for the dating service. But I ain’t kissin’ no stinkin’ beaver!

    (jk, I love beavers).

  13. That’s Igor the Beaver! I have him, too! My parents got my brother and I stuffed beavers (yes, laugh) for Christmas the year real beavers started building a dam in our stream.

    When you press his nose in he looks a lot like an ewok.

  14. OMG! I totally remember that kid! He likes the Wu Tang Clan which I thought was stellar. Anyway, she’s hella cute and clearly has good taste in websites. Match made in heaven indeed.

  15. That’s Igor the Beaver! I have him, too! My parents got my brother and I stuffed beavers (yes, laugh) for Christmas the year real beavers started building a dam in our stream.

    When you press his nose in he looks a lot like an ewok.

  16. “Nice beaver!”

    “Thank you. I just had it stuffed.”

  17. beavers n’ racks?

    *blushes and giggles*

  18. I can’t quite decide which I find cuter,… Sasha or the Beaver. 😛



    No but seriously, they look so good together! someone do something!- what? hes taken? Minor Technicality!

  20. He IS cute, and I’m not talking about the beaver….

  21. Yessss… a perfect match… ::drifts dreamily away::
    Then reality strikes : Redbone, you’re very naughty. But I LOL’d.

  22. Goodness, what a lovely post to wake up and see first thing in the morning! Sasha, my big stuffed guinea-pig puppet would just LOVE to meet Beav.

  23. Dreamspinner Cheryl says:

    Are we totally sure that isn’t Joe in a wig and eyeliner? Quite cute, no doubt, but geezopete, they could be twins!

    DreamspinnerCheryl, smelling a hoax?

    [Look at both photos full-size, side by side. Not a chance… – Ed.]

  24. You know… in the guy’s post he responded and told everyone he was taken and showed pictures of his girlfriend. But, if you try to click on that link, either photobucket or the guy deleted the pics…

    Maybe Sasha has a chance after all!

  25. Oh, and Cheesybird, you’re very bad, as well. *snort*

  26. He was taken a year and a half ago.

    That doesn’t mean he’s still taken.

    A lot can happen in a year and a half. Especially in college.

    Although by now he could also be married.

  27. crazyweinerdoglady says:

    I myself would love a CO dating site. Of course I’m sure no one lives in Arkansas and I’d have to fly to freakin’ Maine or something lol. oh yeah I almost forgot…… BEAVER!

  28. Is it wrong to want to date the Beaver?

  29. Wait a sec– if you *compare the fur* on the two beavers (look closely) they aren’t the same…

    I think that stuffed beavers just look similar in general. These don’t look like the same type.

  30. Dating service, great! Can you set me up with Patito Gigante?

  31. Nice beaver!

  32. Unfortunately, my ‘Leslie Nielsen’ tags got removed from the above quote.

    [You can’t use angle brackets in TypePad comments; y’know, the greater-than less-than symbols. They get interpreted as HTML and stripped out. Just use the square brackets instead, like I do… – Ed.]

  33. Gail (the first one) says:

    Sign me up for CO Dating, too!

    I got a great compliment once when I was lamenting the incompatibility of meeting men with being over 40 with multiple cats to a group of girlfriends. One, who is a lesbian, told me that if I was a lesbian, I would be a chick magnet! As usual, wrong place, wrong time, wrong orientation!!! LOL!!!

  34. I have that beaver too! His name is Bucky.

  35. Sasha's Mom says:

    They’re not twins! I would know.

    That stuffed beav has been loved more than the Velveteen Rabbit. He’s got a cute helium-like voice and quite the attitude.
    (Go ahead and tear my comments apart, but THIS post is RATED G. Sorry to disappoint some of you. haha)

  36. So Sasha’s Mom, have you nabbed the guy’s phone number and given it to Sasha yet? He looks like perfect son in law material.

    And he already knows (pardon me) what’s good in beavers.

  37. Cute!

  38. These people would have beautiful children, people. What say we draw up a prenup? Your beaver…uh, never mind.

  39. This post certainly has charmed the top of the Cute-o-Meter here at CuteOverload. Having missed Joe’s original post, I certainly appreciate the chance to catch up. ^_^) Thanks!

  40. Also, as a Canadian, I’d like to cheer your love of the beaver. ^_^)

  41. Haha, aww.

    Sasha’s so pretty!

  42. Does this guy still go on Cuteoverload?! He must send you an email NOW!
    Wouldn’t it be cute if they met and at the very least got a picture together with their two beaver buddies together at last?

  43. Su-umm whe-erre ou-ut therre..

  44. Hey, I need a boyfriend, too. Hook me up, CO!

  45. Lyrical, first you must bring me the twin of Mr. Giggles.

  46. Totalee Puppy says:

    To me, the beaver in the
    guy-picture looks newer
    and more fwuffy than the other one. Don’t get me wrong–I love the other beaver because he is worn-out from giving years of love and play…(Tenille sings “Muskrat Love.)

  47. Totalee Puppy says:

  48. Totalee Puppy says:

    My curiosity gets the better of me once again…
    Who is Mr. Giggles?
    Good luck, Lyrical!

  49. Where is that beaver the girl is holding from? I’m trying to remember if a stuffed beaver puppet I had as a child is the same one or not.

  50. it’s funny how there’s a person in the background of the guy’s picture wearing the same stripe sweater as the girl

  51. oolongteadrinker says:

    They kinda look like the male/female versions of each other.

  52. look now she has stuffed boobs and a stuffed beaver..:D

  53. Totalee Puppy says:

    look now I am stuffing someone’s face with
    jalapeño pudding…

  54. Ooh. That’s harsh, T-Pup. Eurrghh.

  55. Totalee Puppy says:

    I know, Boss…Thanks for giving me a chance to vent…I’m sure you can take my post off the thread…If that nice girl were my sister…she’d be a puppy…
    Totalee Puppy

  56. This is just my opinion, but stuffed animals shouldn’t count.

    Unless we’re talking about the humans, in which case they’re both cute. I especially like the original guy’s “pick me! pick me!” expression.

  57. ‘Twasn’t me, Poohbear. Lieutenant Frank Drebin gets all the credit.

  58. they look like twins, the guy and girl I mean. twin brother and sis .

  59. oh sorry others said that already,lol .. I just saw the sasha mom posts,and she should know that thier not twins as she said very well. To Sasha ,wish her the best and that she finds love everlasting in her life with the right one for her,whomever that may be. And also so Sashas Ma can have lovely grandbabies ,bless you all:)

  60. Totalee Puppy says:

    Wishing Sasha and her mom
    the gentle rain of happiness, a garden sown with kindness and a future
    family, a “Mr. Beaver Perk-You-Up Bouquet”,and-from my heart-“Mazel Tov” for your wonderful idea…

  61. SO. GREAT.

  62. crazyweinerdoglady says:

    soooo, do we have an update on starting a CO dating site? LOL

  63. So am I the only one to notice that Sasha commented on the original post way back then? Kinda sweet that after all this time she found him cute all over again.

  64. i never liked that picture, its not a cat, and there certainly isn’t a rack anywhere to be found.

    Cats & Racks had the potential to be a mega hit but most of its entries are wanting.

  65. I would like to also sign up, or at the very least I would like to use all my best pickup lines.

    So, Sasha, lemme tell ya: I’m worth your time. I’m not full of nothing but fluff like other boys.

  66. “I have to tell you just how I feel, I won’t share you with another beav…”

    – Stingk

  67. I think that I’d rather have this guy’s status remain unknown. He’s more of a concept or notion of a cute guy like ** Jake Ryan. **

    Besides, if we do open a dating service, I would be very worried about some of our chums like NTMTOM, Berthaservant, & Theo. This could get very ugly in a “Rock of Love” kind of way very quickly.

    Seriously guys. If it happens, run.

  68. If they do meet and it’s happenin’ you’ve got to update us,’k?

    What a keeyyyuuuute couple they would be!!!

  69. Kar, The only problem I see are the guys are probably outnumbered about 100-1! And the guys like Theo are married.
    BTW…I’m single, soft-hearted and like to snorgle…

  70. Ah, but that’s the rub snorglepup. I hate to stereotype my gender, but have you ever seen the annual running of the brides or the catfights on ‘Flavour of Love?’

    The sort of behavior that would make grizzly bears quake.

  71. I’d like to think we’re all kindred spirits who seek out the cute to balance the nuff of life.
    Oh well, a girl can dream…

  72. He looks like jake gyllenhaal!! <3

    [He *IS* the Kwisatz Had… er, wait, no… – Ed.]

  73. ew.

  74. Man, if I were this guy’s girlfriend and I saw this…. Heads would ROLL.

  75. warrior rabbit says:

    It’s not a CO dating service, or even a Men of CO or a ResCute calendar, but Bunspace is having a men-with-buns contest. No shortage of cuties there!

  76. Men with buns.
    Of *course* they are.

  77. hi, this is joe from the picture up there. not taken…just saying and also, someone found my facebook?? how

  78. joe, please come on my chest. i mean that in the cutest way possible.

  79. this is a family friendly website!
