Finally, a solution to the global economic crisis!

This is the FIRST solution I’ve seen make ANY SENSE.

How about it, America!?

Sender-Inner Ian M., thank you for bringing this slobbery solution to light. See more Natalie Portman videos at Funny or Die.

    Am I REALLY bleening Natalie Portman and puppies?

  2. berthaservant says:

    WOW! That made my day.

    Puppies are always cute.
    Natalie and Rashida rolling in puppies….it’s like a party in my brain and everyone’s invited.

  3. Cute puppies, cute girls.

  4. Martha in Washington says:

    I would like to help in any way possible. Send me 12. Puppies, not pretty girls. Not that there is anything wrong with that. (My maiden name was Portman. I like to tell people Natalie and I are related.)

  5. YES! Puppehs ARE the solution to EVEREETINGZ!!! The smaller and fuzzier and helplesser the better!

    I will gladly join the snuggle pile. (Yeah, I’m a girl, but still… heteroflexibility!)

  6. The puppies weren’t the cutest really… probably so they didn’t outcute the hot chicks 8-p

  7. omg best solution evar. i love her.

  8. Yay puppies! But I think the real message is not to take ourselves so seriously. Times are tough and will probably get tougher, but remember to laugh a little! And to all you nay-sayers who want to suck us into their black hole of misery and grief and try to make everybody feel like farging iceholes: Shut it!

  9. mervtheflamingo says:

    Whoa. Love this solution. But what about a new bail-out package…….involving…..kittens?

  10. Ahahaha! I wondered where that was going. Portman has such a lovely smile, too!

  11. scooterpants says:

    makes total sense to me.
    sign me up for a half dozen.
    you’all can have the cute girls, those i dont have much use for, (unless they clean my house)
    and i think those were totally adorable puppies, there are NO ‘not so cute’ puppies.

  12. Theres a solution these two can provide me but it’s not puppies.. kinda spelled like puppies though..

  13. warrior rabbit says:

    I didn’t find it particularly funny, but it was loads of cute.

    Who wouldn’t want to be swarmed by puppies? Adorable! Count me in!

  14. Yes please. This is the most logical solution yet.

    PUPPIES!!!

  15. Awwwwww such cute puppies! This totally reminded me of that scene on Scrubs where JD considers how one cures a broken heart. (Solution: a box of kittens, stat!) Love it. :)

  16. LUCKY PUPPIES!

  17. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m ok with this but a huge pile of KITTNZ on a couple of cute GUYS (I nominate David Cook and, um, Matthew Fox) would be even BETTER.

  18. Mary (the first) says:

    although I gotta say, good actresses to keep such a straight face throughout the black and white part! YAAAYYYY and they are truly lovely young ladies, aren’t they.

  19. My wallet feels heavier already!

  20. Mary, I agree with you! I like the puppehs, but a pile of kittens and cute guys would have been waaay better! :p~

  21. puppies. its the answer.

  22. whenever i get stressed about the election or the dire economic news, i go to cuteoverload.com to destress. it really works! if only i had a pile of puppies too…

  23. temperance says:

    ummm…i like boys and all, but i just don’t think they can out-cute girls and puppies. no way.

  24. Well, that was pointless and not even funny.

  25. *BARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRF*

    NOT Qte AT ALL!!!

  26. Cute… but sadly makes me think about all of the folks we abandoned their pets because of losing their homes to the downfall. While I do agree pets make people feel great, I can’t imagine the heartbreak one must feel knowing they have to leave their pet at a shelter because they are now homeless.

  27. Cute, but weren’t they really just cribbing from Jon Stewart’s way to make everyone feel calmer on the first Daily Show after September 11th? http://www.thedailyshow.com/video/index.jhtml?videoId=106570&title=A-Puppy

  28. Oh look at us – aren’t we cute. Whatabore.

  29. Capt' Tightpants says:

    and ps: the way she says “puppies” at the end, in b&w and so totally freakin’ serious: CRACKED MY SHIZZLE UP!

    now back to my regularly programmed begging for money.

  35. You mean, I don’t have to choose between Rashida Jones and a pile of puppies, anymore? I can has BOFE?!?

    My life has meaning again.

  41. Tough crowd today!! C’mon people, pretty girls (with their racks safely covered, TYVM) and PUPPIES? Should be a no-brainer. I can’t believe people are actually coming up with negative reactions to this.

    Geez.

  42. You just haven’t tried hard enough emmemm.

  43. Such sad, depressed, and negative people that nuff this! Get therapy! Get Effexor! Get over yourself! (Really, you’re not that cool.) Get outta here until you can smile at simple joys!

  44. PUPPIES!!!!

    They are SOOOOO right!

    And that Natalie Portman is darn cute too!

  45. Miss Holly says:

    Does this mean we will be using puppies as currency?

  46. How could you say no to Natalie Portman and a bedful of puppies?

  47. Hmm, this does make sense. BUT you know i think kittehs would make more sense. OR kittehs and puppies TOGETHER! I think this is history in the making. And also I remember that episode of scrubs SOOOO cute I love jd :)

  48. I support this proposal!! Puppies! They would melt a lot of hearts and make everyone smile.

    I enjoyed that video – for me anyone smothered in little puppies would be cute, whether actresses, Joe the Plumber, my fifth grade teacher, or that annoying cashier at the grocery store!

  49. Juniper Jupiter says:

    And THAT’S why I’m not in Hollywood, LOL!!

    Natalie and Rashida are geniuses!!!

    Or genii!?

    Either way…KYOOT!!!

    :D

    But it’d be cuter wiff KITTEHS!!! :P

  50. You realize that these are the same people who watch the Puppy Bowl right?

    Stupid waste of time. I just watch for the half-time show. Kittens!

  51. Martha in Washington says:

    How ’bout puppies in place of currency and kitties in place of credit cards. And hammies in place of coins. (Only no trying to shove them into coke machines!)

  52. ahh! i love how they made them kiss each other, teeheeee!

  53. Belle O'Cosity says:

    That was really creepy. Two hot rich chicks just told us to be happy cuz of puppies that they never, ever have to clean up after.

    Cute Overload, I love you. But this was shit.

    Oh and thanks rich girls for making fun of the rest of us. You will never feel the crisis. But for some reason you have 10 dogs at your hand. How did that happen? With all the money the rest of us don’t have.

  59. *blinks*
    How is there nuffing on piles of puppies?

    Nuffers, Instead of Coming Here You Could:
    Try to quickly shut elevator doors
    Tell a new mother that her baby worsens overpopulation
    Steal socks from the dryer
    Pretend not to be home on Halloween
    Refuse to give up bus seats for the elderly
    Complain about neighbor’s parties
    Don’t refill the office coffeepot
    Argue with supermarket cashiers about coupons

    Send your meal back 3 times at a restaurant

    [Seriously, people- don't take yourselves so seriously]

  60. best…PSA…evar!

  61. I love it!

  62. Sahrawi Wife says:

    YAY! PUPPPIIIIEEEESSS!!early morning puppies for me ! puppy bref , MMMMMM good stuffs! :0)

    (Katie, Well said !)

  63. So exactly what is involved in the procees of extracting Xanax from puppeh bref? I mean…that must be it, right?

  64. If a pile of puppies can’t bring a smile to your face and warm your heart, then you are a cold bitter person. Go to a different blog, you whiners!

  65. wow the nuffers need this the most, its not about money or politics its funny and cute! Its about taking a moment to laugh and enjoy the fun things in life that are still around no matter what the economy is doing!

  66. PUPPIES!!!!!!!!!!!

  67. Let’s see, we have people who just can’t seem to get into the mood even though they themselves clicked on a site called ‘Cute Overload’, people who are so crunched they seem to have to take it out on others and people having a difficult time finding their whimsy-how about some inappropriate nationalism- take that Japanese Cuties! Good ol’ ‘Merican Cute, gol dang it! (Wink).
    Sheeesh.

  68. warrior rabbit says:

    That was clearly a troll — I mean, Belle O’Cosity? Points for creative naming, I guess.

  69. Yeah, see, it wouldn’t work to use puppehs as currency because everyone would hoard them.

  70. i’ll trade 5 puppies for one natalie portman

  71. cheesybird says:

    Joey, if I had a Natalie Portman to give, I’d trade you for the puppies!

  72. I knew she was a smart cookie, that Natalie.

  73. Kitties would be more likely to scratch if they were grabbed like that, wouldn’t they?

    Not that I’m saying those two cuties were being rough! Just that puppies look like they wouldn’t mind being carried and put down and carried and put down..

    PUPPEEEEEEEEEEEES!

  74. Pussytoes says:

    Rashida is really an understated beauty, no?

  75. Smiling at Portman/Puppy video … Laughing at Katie’s comment …
    Good times overall …

  76. I wasn’t particularly amused.

    But I was overly adorabled. hehehe

    Now, add a touch of kittehs, and a smidge of bunbuns…. and THAT is the answer to EVERYTHING!!!!

  77. though i do have to say… I LOVE the use of the birghtly colored shirts to just ADD to how wonderfully bright and sunny puppies make your life. :-D

  78. Carolina2 says:

    I loved this. I’m glad they could find time out of their schedules to make us ‘plain folks’ happy. Really. Not many celebrities would do this. They usually think they’re too important, and don’t think about anyone else. On the other hand, I could totally see Angelina Jolie doing something like this. Maybe she could make a pile of her kids…nah! That would get ’nuffed’ for sure if it was shown here!

  79. I would also, for the record, accept piglets as a solution. Little pink baby oinkers. <3!

  80. I was wondering why I found this so offensive and it later struck me that it was simply two impossibly rich fools rolling around with some puppies and declaring that was how to deal with losing your home , job, and medical coverage. Couldn’t be more thoughtlessly asinine.Yes- it was cribbed from Jon Stewart”s tearful profering of a puppy after 911. He could barely speak because of his own emotions.

  81. SO, it’s like today’s version of “let them eat cake”?

    I like cake.

  82. This would be better if it was a pile o’ puppies rescued from a shelter. Puppies will also = lots of vet bills. It’s sometimes bad being a vet student… ignorance is bliss.

  83. Mary (the first) says:

    I’m so amazed at the nuffing I can’t even think of a response. So I guess I’ll give up and just repeat that I Love this and would love kittnz/guys also and piglets/buns/whatevers. Just not nuffers.

  84. Oh my God, people. Why are you nuffers even on this blog? Go crawl back in your holes – permanently. This video is adorable and no one is trying to make fun of or belittle people who have lost their jobs and their homes. If you don’t have a sense of humor, you don’t belong here. I’m so sick to death of you negative ninnies! Jeeez!

  85. “negative ninnies” [SNICKER]

  86. Marymomma says:

    Going to watch this a few more times to try to see nuffers point…

    Nope. No way. Cute. Cute. Cute.

  87. scooterpants says:

    no picture!
    Poof ! and its gone all together!
    SEE what you Nuffers did this time!
