CO on the Can

One of our favorite things is to browse Gizmodo and see detailed photos of shiny new Appleness. Coming in close second is browsing sites and seeing mention of Cute Overload.  Imagine our joy at seeing Cute Overload *on* a shiny new Apple MacBook Air *on* Gizmodo!  …I’m feeling faint…


Is that small bathroom-sized trash can?  Is that toilet paper, which is often disposed of in a, whaddyacallit, a toilet?  Is that a toilet bowl brush you might find near, you know, a toilet?

Oh, gross!  Where do you draw the line, guys?  In the future, please view Cute Overload at the appropriate place and time, which is AT YOUR OFFICE DESK while on company time.

You just couldn’t wait, could you, Jason Chen?



  1. Aren’t you flushed with pride!?

  2. Modern Society Rules… Do Not Converse on the phone while on the necessary. Do Not Place laptop on top of the necessary. If you know people who do either, carry sani-wipes and use them after any physical contact…Ewwwwwuu…

  3. AuntieMame says:

    Hee! Our 8-year-old niece called to wish us a happy thanksgiving, and right in the middle of the voice message you heard *FLUSH*. LOL!

  4. NOICE!

  5. LOL!!! WTH?!?? ROFLMTO!!! YAY!!!!!!

    …seriously, though, I want one.

  6. I hope that the computer is a MacBook Airwick. 😉

  7. :: looks :: Teho, your ‘tocks are still intact.

  8. [spins around]

    I *KNEW* my biscuits were burnin’!

  9. But you said you were laughing them off. Kindly assplain yourself.
    (Oooo! Can I say that?)

  10. (Oooo! I got away with it!)

  11. After the first twenty times it happened here, I started using Velcro.

    Never looked back.

  12. Even with high-tech touches, bathroom humor is still sophomoric.

  13. AuntieMame says:

    That’s because there’s no end to it, Ellen. Bwah!

  14. warrior rabbit says:

    But Macs are priced so high… You know, for the effluent.

  15. I love that you name checked Jason Chen… luuurves it.

  16. Warrior Rabbit wins the thread and a lifetime supply of air freshener!

  17. berthaservant says:

    I have a slightly naughty pun to offer, but I think I’ll pass.

  18. warrior rabbit says:

    Wow! A lifetime supply? Holy crap!

  19. I promise you CO is a major feature of my, er, ‘working’ day.

  20. I agree – why are Mac prices are still so high when the economy is at the bottom? [snerk]

  21. Sparkster! Brilliant.

  22. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it. Using the Poopernet is one of life’s great pleasures.

  23. Well then shouldn’t the doggy in the photo be wearing a black turtleneck and jeans?

  24. LOL (s)he nakey 🙂

  25. My grandma used to refer to the toilet as “the throne.”

    Seriously, you might as well flush your shiny new Apple MacBook Air 2nd generation down the can because the shiner, newer 3rd generation will be out tomorrow!!!

    (Yeah, I’m just jealous because I don’t have one)

  26. People, I think we’re missing the real weirdness here- the laptop is ON the toilet. So why in the H is this person sitting in FRONT of the toilet, using it as a desk to view puppies?

    That said… when you gotta CO, you gotta CO. It’s only natural!

  27. Hey– a guest shot from Sparkster!

    “Today is Wednesday,
    You know what that means,
    We’re gonna have a special guest!”

  28. Maybe this photo should have been posted on Giz-commodo…

  29. PS:

  30. Which brings me perilously close to asking for a picture of a komodo dragon!
    Hey, I have the Flu and a lung infection and my IBS is chiming along with the interittant fever in-I feel awfuls!

  31. Gail (the first one) says:

    @Katrina: Healing thoughts…..healing thoughts…healing thoughts your way!

    Where’s the new hamper in this bathroom? You know, the one that just for socks and poo-poo undies??

  32. The only thing that would make this shameless plug more shameless is if there was a CO calendar propped on the tub. (you may use my idea….teehee)

  33. Metsakins for The Win LOL

  34. Okay and For reals of Course sparky posted this one… This would be a guys dream toilet only things missing are the big screen TV.. the mini fridge stocked with beer and some kind of space age chip and dip dispenser

  35. Katrina, the Purrmeister Dante is sending you soothing purrs.

  36. I don’t think it’s so strange to see a laptop in a bathroom. Don’t you know what laptop is spelled backwards?

  37. Looks at Jason’s post… puts purchase of laptop on Hold for a while

  38. Annie, THIS dude emphatically does NOT want food or drink anywhere near the Throne of Leftover Reading Material.

  39. Jason H — that is somewhat awesome. I’m going to remember that one.

  40. Thank you Gail(the first one) and Theresa, could you put your healthy wishes on the fast track- Dante- Dante-is that you? Louder, boy, louder! OK, loud enough, boy thank YOU!
    “Won’t you tell him to put on some speed,cause oh, how I need–someone to watch over me.” He won’t be home until 5 and it is his birthday today. poooh.
    Annie- did you get a chance to peek at my message? I really think Komodao dragon is much funnier, maybe it is the fever, I give up… are, of course, entitled to your opinion.

    We all need prarie dog maestros, yes, we do. Micheal Anne is silent today, another innocent victim of the FLU da-da-dummmmmm.

  41. “Just flush away your troubles on the old white throne and smile, smile, smile!”

  42. I love my new MacBook Pro. And I’ll admit I brought it to the loo with me once or twice. I just can’t put it down!

  43. Theresa, thx fer da leenk!

    (I iz trying, k?)

  44. Yes, I gots the pppnuemon-i-ay.
    I’m going to have lots of time to comment, if I can get out of bed. I sound like an aquarium. This kicks the hell out that Christmas Skiing vacation in Vale!*snerk* Write to me, please!

  45. totalee puppy says:

    Katrina–It’s kind of nice that you can still write
    *snerk*–Thoughts and prayer are with you for the climate of caring that may help heal. Please keep in touch with us.

  46. Dear Totalee puppy, *snerk* is as *snerk* does, yes? She who lives by the *snerk*-no, I don’t think I’ll finish that one.

    I slept for the first time in three nights. The meds are taking their various routes through my body to their destinations and I for one am so glad for pharmaceuticals….thanks Totalee puppy, you are so sweet, And Gail (the first one) and Theresa and momof2kitties and hamster-on-rye, and Prarie Dog Maestro, and everyone I didn’t mention by name, I am thinking of you, too. let’s pick up the healing pace! Dante- you are soooo therapeutic! Last night I imagined that you were sleeping right on my battered chest, warming it up. And you don’t mind that I haven’t showered! Thank you all.

  47. Gail (the first one) says:

    @Katrina: I would add my 7 kittehs to sleep on your battered chest, but the combined weight could be a concern===LOL! (I won’t include Nicky the dog, as he and Killer Corgi would compromise their “naughty or nice” status with Santa! Not to mention the extra 75lbs!)

  48. Get well Katrina, sending you roos and wallies from Oz. No roos on your chest of course.

  49. wallies = koala’s

  50. Dear Katrina. I hope you see this.. I am hoping you are feelling better. I just went late last night and got a chance to go back and read teh whole thread and realised I missed 1. that you were sick and 2 that you requested a Comode dragon.. LOL I guess it is better I didn’t see that I would have been trying to make one for you

    I have been studying for finals so I was just poping in and drive by posting.

    I hope you feel better soon. My kitty’s send purrs to you!
