“Mooooon Rivvverrr…!”

“Are you using the whole fist, doc?”

That’s Fletch F. Fletch, Nancy T



  1. Christabel says:

    Is that a tribble?

  2. Poor buddy, just hates the snap of those rubber gloves being put on:-(

  3. good old whatshername says:

    I think I had that same expression during my last obgyn exam. 😀

  4. I didn’t know that tribbles came with eyes.

  5. Christabel says:

    Maybe you can’t see the eyes until they’re very surprised.

  6. That looks less like a tribble and more like Fizzgig from the Dark Crystal, I think.

  7. victoreia says:

    Prostate exam mascot?

    (Of course, I’ve had that expression for other types of exams….)

  8. Christabel says:

    Wm, you are definitely right. I had to google Fizzgig. Spot on.

  9. victoreia says:

    @Wm: Yes! Fizzgig!

  10. bookmonstercats says:

    Love the whiskers.

  11. OMG!!!! It’s Fizgig!!!!

  12. don’t wanna be a nuffer, but i don’t like this caption – it’s a bit icky…

  13. Yup, that’s a Fizzgig! It might also be a hairball with eyes.

  14. Ladybird, I agree. It is kind of icky.

  15. Hubby says: “That’s a powder puff!”

  16. skippymom says:

    Is this a cat, and if so, what the hell kind?

  17. ButtaRumCake says:

    Can somebody explain the hovertext? I honestly don’t get it…..*blush face*

  18. Furbies exsist!!! I knew it!

  19. I NEED to know what kind of kitty this is!!!

  20. ButtaRumCake –
    It’s all from the old Chevy Chase movie “Fletch.” Which, FYI, is pretty dang funny.

  21. Poor thing looks like a Persian to me. What with the smooshed face and all.

  22. LOL, I just caught Fletch over the holidays, so funny. Owl eyed kitty is very fluffy.

  23. Katiedid – yes, exactly, it’s the “Rectal Exam” Furby, which wasn’t carried in stores. 😉

  24. Receptionist: May I help you Dr…?
    Fletch: Oh, it’s me, Dr. Rosenpenis. I’m just here to check out Alan Stanwyk’s file.
    Receptionist: Dr. who?
    Fletch: Dr. Rosenrosen, I’m here to get to the records room.
    Receptionist: What was that name again?
    Fletch: It’s Dr. Rosen, I want to check the records room.

  25. shrubbery says:

    Of course the caption is icky, that is what makes it funny!

  26. Has anyone seen the movie Critters? Because I think we found the stunt double!

  27. I suppose I’d be the same if *I* were born pregnant.

  28. I LOVE the Dark Crystal! Kitteh looks like Fizgig…I know what he looks like, so proud I didn’t have to google it. Even happier that other people actually know the movie! ❤ 'look like gelfling…smells like gelfling…maybe you ARE gelfling!'

  29. I agree with Ladybird, that caption is very disturbing. 😦

  30. I don’t know the last time I laughed this hard at a post.

    Prongs, you’re my favorite. Don’t tell the others.

  31. HA HA!

  32. Icked out by the caption, which is balanced by the hilariousness of the fizzgig cat.

  33. michellemybelle says:

    That is the roundest cat ever.

  34. ROTFLMAO! Thank you Prongs. That made my day. Caption and all.

  35. cutest fuzz ball ever

  36. Oh look, it’s baby gossamer.

  37. The expression on poor kitteh’s face and Prongs’ caption had me guffawing heartily!

  38. ButtaRumCake, it’s from Fletch. He is trying to interview/sleep with the wife of a man he is investigation. She comes to the door in a towel, having just gotten out of the shower. He says….

  39. Btw, love the caption and the hovertext. Cracked me up! Not enough Fletch references on this site!! :-p

  40. PRONGS!!! (gasp, shocked)

  41. The kitty is so stunned it’s wrinkling its whiskers!

  42. and yes, my use of “it’s” and “its” is correct

  43. Anonymous Coward says:

    and the worst is when the doc says “relax! take it easy!”, especially when they’re doing a cystoscopy (sp?). yeah, *you* try to relax, wiseguy!

    and, hey, Fletch isn’t that old, it was just… oh, wait.

    that could explain why Chevy Chase is suddenly looking so old…


  44. Andi from NC says:

    This is an absolute riot!!!! Poor kitteh, poor, poor, kitteh…..

  45. kibblenibble says:

    I’ve looked and looked, but I can’t see any ears or feet on this kitteh. Maybe he is indeed a tribble, or this fizzgig you speak of.

  46. I hope the doc at least bought the kitteh dinner first.

  47. look out doc, even fluffballs have claws

  48. Mary (the first) says:

    This made me LOL also!
    @marmar, I think most of us would have known that you were correct.. and thank you for being so!

  49. @Mary (the first) I read “Eats, Shoots and Leaves” and I’m a little sensitive about my apostrophes.

  50. Bluemenro says:

    That CAN’T be real, right? Right????

  51. *snerk* at the caption.
    tee hee!

  52. ahahahahaha!

  53. Queen of Dork says:

    I also googled Fizzgig. Yup. Looks just like it. I would be a little afraid if I were that doctor.

  54. Icky is an understatement. I would say way too crude for this website.

  55. All I can say is …. O…. MY!

  56. Immediately reminded me of that e mail that has gone around entitled something to the effect of, Things You Say To A Proctologist, ie. “Did you find Jimmy Hoffa?”

  57. The pic and comment made me laugh, but Holly’s comment made me LOLAW (laugh out loud and wheeze), which hurts cuz I have a chest cold…so cut it out, ok? 😀

  58. dr. berthaservant says:

    Full. Of. Win.

  59. What timing! I just watched Fletch last night. That poor kitteh looks so startled.

  60. Oh for Heaven’s sake, that can’t be a real animal!

  61. lol

  62. Good lord. What IS that kitty? Where are its ears? Where are its feet? This just cracked me up.

  63. I love him!! 😀

  64. I remember the first time I took my blind CH kitten, adopted from a feral colony, to the vet. I’ve never seen a cat thrash so hard when the thermometer went in, nor one curl up in such a tight little ball after it came out! (Kitteh is happy and well-adjusted eight years later, and has forgiven the vet.)

  65. The caption is gross. I follow this blog for the cuteness and even gave links to my little sister, who loves cute animals- do you think you could tone it down a bit? Cute and gross never actually mix well…

    [Cute Overload was, is, and ever shall be PG-13. BOOYAH – Ed.]

  66. Prongs to the snicker lounge please you have a shot of Cuervo Gold on the bar.
    Thank You , that is all.

    [Make that a double – Ed.]

  67. AWW 😦 That poor kitty looks scared 😦 Makes me want to pick him/her up and cuddle him/her 🙂

  68. ” I say Sir, have a care, you could at leastwarm the thing up a little.”

  69. it’s a tribble!

  70. ButtaRumCake says:

    @ fft5305 #38 – Thanks for the segue…I LOLd very loudly!!

  71. Totally looks like Fizzgig from Dark Crystal as was said earlier lol Too funny

  72. Okay, I only understand three of the four references in the post (the one being the fist thing) but I think the photo is outrageously funny. Look at those round, expressive peepers!!!

  73. “O_O”

    Oh xD!

  74. A tribble with eyes! :O

  75. doomchild says:

    Grossiest caption ever… and yet I can’t help but laugh 😀
    Poor cat… tribble… gossamer… thing.

  76. It’s a Tribgig! Or a Fizzle. I think I prefer Fizzle.

  77. LOL Fizzgig is the middle name of my hedgehog (Yes she has one.)

  78. Dr. Rosenrosen FTW!

  79. Fizzgig! Though if anyone recalls he’s got the biggest mouth and is a fierce little guy. I would certainly not do anything like what has been implied to any critter like Fizzgig.

    It’s funny how the cat’s ears are completely absorbed by his head fluff. Hope he had a better rest of the day than what was captured in this moment.

  80. In the mid-eighties, there was a toy (whose name escapes me) that looked like a cat and whizzed around on wheels, supposedly to the sound of your voice. It was shaped like a hemisphere and had a long fuzzy tail, which I suspect was indeed an antenna. When I looked at this poor cat, that old toy of mine was the first thing I thought of.

  81. Sorta reminds me of the time years ago at my GYN appointment when the doctor started whistling — I kid you not — “On a Clear Day (You Can See Forever)”. I know how kitty feels…

  82. OMG that is just too adorable! Real life Fizzgig….I want to hug the kitteh!

  83. Nicolletta says:

    That’s not a cat. I don’t know what it is, but it’s not a cat. 🙂

  84. paranoiagirl says:

    It’s a Fizzgig/tribble/furby/cat hybrid! Oy with the genetic experimentation, already! When will the madness end?!

  85. Hello Katie says:

    Samantha, I think you’re thinking of a Petster – I still have mine from when I was a kid. Never could get it to do what I wanted, though….guess it’s a lot like a real cat, lol.

  86. fifthsonata says:

    What breed of cat is this? Some kind of persian?!

    I can’t figure out if I should pet this thing or be afraid of it…yet oddly, I still want to touch it (in a non-glove necessary sort of way)….

  87. I think it’s a Chuzzle…

  88. Kirsten Anderson says:

    So glad I’m not the only one who likes the Dark Crystal! Although surprisingly, my first inclination was that he was some kind of koosh ball…but fizzgig is spot on!

  89. I understand the concerns about the hovertext… but that is EXACTLY what that face is saying. xD
    And I’m siding with the “Tribble with eyes” contingent because that’s what I thought when I saw it. 😛

  90. Ah…it’s Arnold Babar!

  91. Carnivorous M. says:

    @HonGlad: Dagnabbit, I swore I’d stop falling off of my chair. You owe me furniture repairs, hospital bills, and a new keyboard (I took it down with me).

  92. LovelyOne says:

    This is a first! I’ve never seen eyes on a tribble before now woohoo!! 😀

  93. Someone’s goosing that tribble!

  94. Love the caption. Hilarious! 😀

  95. ahahahaha.
    best. caption. ever.
    yes it’s “icky” but so are a lot of things in life! at least this one’s cute at the same time and very funny!

  96. In Bad Taste says:

    What do you mean I left the red flag in my back pocket? Uh oh…

  97. “Just breathe easy …”

  98. ROFL!!!!!!!!

  99. Dr. Joseph Dolan: Right. Now, how long have you had these pains, Mr. Barber?
    Fletch: No, that’s “Babar”.
    Dr. Joseph Dolan: Two B’s?
    Fletch: One B. B-A-B-A-R.
    Dr. Joseph Dolan: That’s two.
    Fletch: Yeah, but not right next to each other. I thought that’s what you meant.
    Dr. Joseph Dolan: Arnold Babar. Isn’t there a children’s book about an elephant named Babar?
    Fletch: I don’t know. I don’t have any.
    Dr. Joseph Dolan: No children?
    Fletch: No elephant books.

  100. prinbsn – Thanks for making me guffaw at work during a quick CuteOverload break.
    All – Regardless of its genetic make-up, that is one shocked-looking…whateveritis. Can’t we have ANY sympathy for it? No? OK, just checking.

  101. Holeeeeeeeeee Shnikies. I dont think I will ever stop laughing. And the Fletch reference is un-freaking-believable

  102. James C Sherman says:

    Is That A Class Ring!

  103. lol does look like tribble! :|]

  104. Hilarious! That picture and the caption made me spit my drink out laughing. Gotta love the sophomoric humor sometimes!

  105. hey, is that a doll. like a shocked doll.

  106. I giggled for five minutes after reading the caption…

  107. It looks exactly like these things my friend makes:


  108. @Drew — kinda. Huh. 😯

  109. That spleen is the spittin’ image.
