  7. Hon Glad says:

    Would you like to slip into sumzink more comfertables. like my arms, mon cher.

  8. Zelda, you mean your name is Zelda Perdue?

  9. Vhat kind of chien iz zhat?

  10. Shur fine!! Gaaaaak!!
    You’re supposed to pronounce it like you’ve finally given in to a ridiculous argument made by a pig-headed loved one over something ultimately meaningless. Like so:

    [sighs, rolls eyes, drops jaw]
    “Sure. Fine.”

  11. Mary (the first) says:

    So how does one pronounce “Poofe’e”? (with the accenty thing over the e as shown but I don’t know how to do that). Is it Poo-fee-ay? Or Poo-feee? or Poo-fay ? One of you Frensche speakers (and I see you all are) please help me.

  12. ahhh! this is one of my favorite posts ever!

  13. Voulez-vous Shur Fine avec moi ce soir?

    [Gitchee gitchee grilled cheese ya ya!! – Ed.]

  14. Puppeh, kitteh or Chupacabra???

  15. Let’s see, what do we have on the menu so far? Shur Fine Soup, whole-grain hamster loaf, freshly-retrieved Guinness… y’know, it occurs to me that I never ate lunch.

  16. Paunchie says:

  17. Funny, he doesn’t *look* like Pepe LePew.

  18. Alors! I thought that chien was un chat!

  19. Cambridge Rat Mom says:

  20. Ghetto? But…that’s what my mama used to make me when I was sick…

    Just kidding. She used Campbells. Shur-Fine is what the poor people ate.

  21. Dexter Fishmore says:

    Time for merci bow-cool:
    Thanks to Meg for the original post.
    Thanks to Theo for bringing this back. It’s a
    classic, all right.

  51. warrior rabbit says:

    donna, zee dialogue, she has always been that way. Eef eet is not c’est bon, do not read. Just enjoy le kyoot.

  52. Okay now I want a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup and a fluffy puppy who speaks Sexxxxxy frawnch!

    well at least I can have the soup and the grilled cheese.

  53. i like that little boop of a tail!

  54. I was in Woodman’s grocery store the other day and I saw this can of Tomato sauce and told my friend “Oh my goodness that reminds me of a cuteoverload post!” so when we got done shopping, I looked it up. Glad to see it on the up and up.

  55. Gahhh what kind of dog is this?!!?

  56. Yes. Yes! Someone please put us out of our miseries! Jasonn and I both need to go out immediatement and buy ourselves tiny white fluffballs of cuteness!

  57. Er… maybe… French Polar Bear?

  58. my grammie has a bichon frise. This pretty baby has prolly had a haircut because when Bella was a puppy, her nickname was swiffer because she looked like a dust mop. I’m not even sure if he is a bf. he doesn’t have the leetle floppee earses.

  59. I’ve decided it’s a west highland white terrier. not that that’s a french breed…

  60. Tractatus Blorpico-Philosophicus says:

    I suspect this is a v. babeh American Eskimo dog — it actually looks just like a v. babeh schipperke (which my flatmates had–totally awes), but as they don’t come in white, I think it’s another spitz-family dog, which the AE is. W/these spitzes (including poms), their hair gets much longer & thicker & develops the characteristic ruff, culottes, etc. in adulthood, so they look quite different as v. young bebehs. The face also develops later into the adult profile. Can any AE owners out there confirm?

  61. Tractatus Blorpico-Philosophicus says:

    Oops- the tail does look awfully Westie though…

  62. I love eet when Meg gets her goofy French accent on b/c it always involves a paw over your mouth and a shhhh! Totally cracks me up every time.

  63. zeldapie says:

    I always hear Pepe le Pew in my head when Meg does her French speak.

  64. …or perhaps Perpe le Phew?

  65. kultgirl says:

    Sure. Fine.


    My former employer used to tell me that fine = f*** it never ends.

    Makes sense with the label.

    Did someone say “Woodman’s?” Are you in Wisconsin (too)?!

  66. luvkittehs says:

    Theo that was the previous pic but as kultgirl ses bwahahahah!

  67. luvpuppehs says:

    Dawwww I want a can opener that looks cute and isn’t metal+plastic! I got doggy that looks like that and what do i see on the internet? A cute, fluffy, smart, canopening, white dog (as opposed to black cat) which comes with free tomato soup!
    I want one.

  68. qwertyuiop says:

    Read the one previous by luvpuppehs. Wink Wink.

  69. Quentindemster says:

    Look up.
    Theres somethong fishy about the previous comment.

  70. hamstergirl says:

    Now look up again.
    Not that up.
    The one previous of mine is written by Quentin Demster.
    The fat glasses bloke on Dateline or sumthin?

  71. piddlinturkeythatfarts says:

    It’s Stateline, hamster butt. And Quent is not fat.
    He. Is. Hot.
    That tomato soup makes me hungreeh!

  72. Hey Cuteoverload is busy today, the 21st of march must be some kinda holiday!
    Petit chien c’est belle!

  73. It is Killer Corgi’s bigger big brother’s birthday and Johann Sebastian Bach’s too! Happy Birthday Killer’s bigger big Brother!

  74. He’s adorable! 😀

  75. So Donna, you don’t *have* to read the dialog. With the news, the politics, the economy – CO is a breather for a few minutes in the day, and what’s the harm in everyone having fun with it?

  76. luvbunnehs says:

    FI-nal-leeee we have something on March Somethingotherthan21st!

    That Dog.
    So cute!

  77. Hey, Luv, pick one screen name and stick with it. Don’t pretend to have conversations with (or about) your eight other fake names. That behavior is known as “astroturfing” or “sock puppetry” and it tends not to endear you to moderators of online communities.

  78. Yeah.
