If you don’t know what MFBT is yet, I’m sure someone will be kind enough to clear things up for you in the comments.  And save some for me, eh?

SOOOOOOOO I found this flower and it is really good flower I like this kind it’s better then the other stuff you buy…. can we buy a pet gold fish?!?! I like fish but I don’t like sushi… I prefer my fishies cooked… speaking of cooked.. I was gonna bake you a cake……….”

  14. Ah.. this is much better than the dangling.. um.. the previous picture. Maybe this is why it took so long for a post today, they were all working on this masterpiece! Maru’s crab hat! The marghlflrag hammy! Waffle’s foot! The whatever it was little yellow feathered ball thingy! The white feathered poofballs! The giant rubber ducky!! Oh man.. this is a gem.

  15. BStrange says:

    @Sue – Right-hand side below the pig schnozzle? That is a rather damp jerboa, as seen here: And one of the cutest things in the lot, I think!

  16. kibblenibble says:

    My favorite of these is still the Owsche kitty with the pink cast, followed closely by Whack-a-Kitty, which I watched at least a dozen times. *toddles off to the snickering lounge, for MFBT*

  17. oh I love the spaghetti hammie.

  18. Now this is some SERIOUS cuteOVERLOAD.

    Well done!!! 😀

  21. Ed, I feel like I could be that alien babe with the three hootie mcboobers.

    [*sigh*… Eccentrica Gallumbits! It’s too early – Ed.]

  22. I’m so full now I don’t know if I have room for the main course.

  31. What stinkin’ cute horses!!

  32. Really enjoyed this… thanks Theo!

  33. aaaahhh!!

    because it actually was mfbt, it took me extra long to figure out what mfbt stood for. but that’s the point of mfbt right????

    am i the first one to comment that actually partook in mfbt??? woooo!!! go me!!! drunk ramblings: lalalala snorf, lalala blorp, lalalala kitty on coke, lalalaa shnozzle, lalalala maru, lalalala disapproving, lalalala i’ve got a rectangle cut out of my face so i can see 😀

    [LOL! 😆 There’s French-press Sumatran by the stove… – Ed.]

  34. The Dutchess of Cupcake says:

    Those poor homeless gingerbread people. lol.

  35. Queen of Dork says:

    Fabulosity! I just love the exuberant pig!

  36. AuntieMame says:

    Great! Now I just need to print this 8,632,903,153,953,275,063,627,245,876 times and I can paper my bedroom walls with it!

  37. ingemary says:

    THREE times Maru !!! That’s a gift , makes my day ! (All the others too !)

  38. Yay! It´s like looking at multiple pages of my C.O. calendar but without having to turn the pages. 🙂

  39. MickeyC says:

    I hope no epileptics are looking at this page!

    [You know, I did consider animating this… – Ed.]

  40. Queen of Dork says:

    I never could find one of those CO calendars. The book stores around here didn’t have any. Maybe next year, though. But I’ll always have this site for my daily dose of teh qte!

  41. Too much cuteness to handle in one bite !

  42. Queen of Dork says:

    As adorable as the cats in this post are, watch out for them. I think SamKitty is trying to kill me because I haven’t “kicked that girl to the curb.” (my daughter).
    First: I was sitting on the couch. I got up to get something from the kitchen. I came back and proceeded to sit. At JUST that moment, SamKitty decided to skooch himself directly into the area where I was going to place my butt, which made me shriek and kind of lift myself up to avoid putting my full weight on him, causing me to bang my head really hard on the wall behind me. That’s one.

    Then, I got up to walk from the livingroom to the bathroom. He jumped down from the couch and ran in front of my feet in an attempt to sort of herd me into the kitchen. (He believes it’s time for me to put more food in his bowl). This maneuver of his almost tripped me and I could have fallen and broken my neck and all of my teeth. That’s two. After both of these incidents, I swear I heard him giggling evily. *sigh*

    I have to go now, and feed my cat.

  43. Katrina says:

    OK, I’ll bite, please someone, what is MFBT, please? It apparently hasn’t come as far as my corner of the Steppes of Central Connecticut. Killer is feeling better, the yeasty beasties in her ears appear under control.

  44. Queen of Dork says:

    Hi Katrina! I’m so happy that Killer is feeling better! SamKitty is well and is currently trying to kill me. And also, I confess: I don’t know what MFBT is either. I didn’t want to admit that as I thought that would be too dorky.

  45. Hi Katrina and QofD.

    MFBT = Mother Fluffin (or something similar) Booze Time

    But its Caturday now – Abby was kind enough to wake me early and remind me – so I’m off to make a cup of tea.

  46. Queen of Dork says:

    Fluffy: Oh. Thanks! I think I’ll go make some coffee. (It’s MFCT over here)

  47. flowerfanatic says:

    Here I thought I was the only one who didn’t know what MFBT was. For those of us who don’t know, PLEASE tell us so we can stay in the loop!!
    For calendar seekers, try a book store. I’ve been lucky to get one as a gift the past 2 Christmases.
    Love the montage today. Some of the cutest all in one place. WHOO, WHOO!!

  48. DogEared says:

    i will have a nibble on the bear earsies, with a side of hammie-in-a-hat please. DEE-LISH-US. aren’t we the lucky ones with all the overload..? yes, i say.

  49. That barbed wire pic looks painful. Hope that little guy made it.

    [We’ve been over this; it’s hard to tell depth and distance in that shot. The dogs had all cleared the wire when the shutter clicked, no worries. – Ed.]

  50. QOD! Where be you from? I have a spare calendar I forgot to give as a chrimbo gift :o)

  51. earlybird1 says:

    Third row from the bottom, far right… I call George Clooney look-alike!

  52. COMPLETE and total Cute Overload. Thanks. I’m gonna go over here and let my head explode from teh Cute now.


  53. Resriechan says:

    um…..peeps…he BEGAN the smorgasbord (sp?)

    with tha BOIDIE …..who was ….how you say….

    having intimate relations (or attempting to do so) with tha guy’s HAID !!!

    “You have been shagged by a rare African parrot!!”

    (new competishe for the best-ever MP line about birds:
    “He’s pining for the Fjords”/ Northern Blue/ Dead Parrots sketch….)

    haccum nobuddy mentioned THAT yet??????

    (indignant pout/ monumental eye-roll )

  54. courtney says:

    MFBT = MouthFuls of Babeh Toebeans.

  55. Forget cuteOVERLOAD, this is getting into the area of nuclear yield!

  56. You know, if this post ends up in the Top Four, I don’t know WHAT I’m gonna do about the thumbnail. 😯

  57. Queen of Dork says:

    Oh! Oh! I just saw Paul the Cat Yodeling guy on that montage. I didn’t notice that until I read the George Clooney look-alike comment and scrolled back up and looked again. That Cat Yodeling video is one of my all time favorites! Is that up for an Oscar this year? It should be. It’s hilarious! I love it. I love the guy who says, “I can’t get my cat to yodel. I don’t even know where he’s at.” And the guy who can’t get his cat to yodel but his cat is a dog. hahahahahahaha! 🙂

  58. Queen of Dork says:

    TartanFerret: I’m in Vegas! *crap. that’s not much of a mailing address. poop*

  59. Oooh far far away from Scotland! Oh well in for a penny, message me through youtube or summit and I’m sure we can work summit out… Must help supply the qte

  60. Peanut's Mama says:

    LOVE IT COURTNEY!!!!!!!!!

  61. Resriechan says:

    Q oD: perhaps both you & tartan can go to the Cutetalk thinggy,
    long enough to provide the purrrrrrrrrrson who haz an extra CO calendar,
    with your mailing address, off the regular internet.
    That MIGHT be relatively safe. or give ’em an email contact and on THAT give em the snail mail location???

    [CuteTalk is here, by the way. Free sign-up. – Ed.]

  62. Resriechan says:

    @ Theo:

    1)H’ray I’m off moderashun!!! yippppppeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

    2) suggest the kitayn w/ arm sticking up in pink cast, for thumbnail….

  63. well..I am new to posting on here, but not new to CuteOverload! LOVEEEEEE it so much, it’s my homepage! SO much better to open to then the world news!! LOVE this mornings montage!!

  64. Queen of Dork says:

    Welcome PeeJ!
    Theo: You know we love you so much! Thanks for the link.

  65. skippymom says:

    I am shocked, horrified, appalled and thoroughly offended that you people would suggest having these adorable creatures as snacks. (stuffs kitten and baby bunny in mouth)

  66. Skippymom, when you start stuffing toitles and leezzards in your mouf, you know you are HARD. CORE. Beware of salmonella.

  67. And that really is only about half of the CO thumbnails I’ve collected so far. More to come, at some point when I feel like it. 😉

  68. Queen of Dork says:

    You guys: Peeps. This has nothing to do with anything but…I’m having one of those rare days. One of those rare days as a single, working parent of a minor child. I don’t have anything that I have to do. (?!) All of my errands are done. The house is clean. Groceries are purchased and put away for the week. I’m…actually…free. I have nothing I need to do. I keep finding myself walking around the house thinking I have to do something but…there’s nothing! 🙂 Wow. I think I’ll just look at pictures of cuteness on CO and then take a nap. (wow). I think I’ll shower and then watch a movie. or NOT! Or just do…nothing! cool.

  69. PS Teho, you KNOW we LOFF YOO SO MOISCHE! Lalalalalalalalalala (skipping in circles, squeezing Dante to make him yodel along).

  70. @ed – thanks :s *stumbles to kitchen, washes down 2 tylenol with the coffee*

  71. Andi from NC says:

    Kitty in the pink cast is still my all-time fave. The montage is wonderful (sadly no EmoBun)!

  72. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: Did that work? Did Dante yodel? ’cause SamKitty just cussed me out when I tried that technique.

  73. Queen of Dork says:

    skippymom: Did you toast them and apply butter and jam before stuffing them in your mouf? Also, hot chocolate washes them down nicely.

  74. QoD, he warbles, sort of. He’s not the cussing type. The real cusser in my household was the late Mimi, who looked like a tiny nun, and swore like a Marine. 😉

  75. Ahhhhhh….
    Theo!!!!! you are a Prince indeed…SIts down with big mug of Coffee and drinks in all the cuteness.
    [OOoooooOOOoooh! – Ed.]

    Saturdays Rule!

  76. Queen of Dork says:

    Theresa: aaaahhhh. I know this sort of cat. And you said before that he’s quite purry? My cat purrs when I come home from work. He must hear my key in the lock because when I open the door, there he is greeting me (hi mom!) and purring. I love him! Even though he’s trying to kill me.

  77. At QofD I am sending Envious JEalos Waves your way 😀
    I have way too much to do today
    But it is always good when someone has a day to luxuriate in happiness and fun stuff.

  78. Ahhhh Home MAde Coffee Mocha.. It doesn’t get any better than this!

  79. Snorglepup says:

    Love the buffet of favorite posts.
    But, Theo, somewhat dissapointed not to find a different hovertext for each shot.
    There’s just no pleasing SOME people!

  80. SnorglePup… Here, I’ll give you a shortcut: 4 x 16 =
    (plus the 61 more I’ve still got, and counting, for another time)

  81. Whoooo, that is the best accumulation of Teh Qte evar!

  82. N. Fritz says:

    pole dancing peeps… *snerk*!

  83. SoCalSis says:

    Morning Testimonial, here…
    Am feeling a bit under the weather, generally achy (FOR NO GOOD REASON is the pisser) and just wanted to check for urgent mail and head back to bed… okay so I’ll check CO for a quick visual dose of Teh Cte, and then clicked on comments, and next thing I know I’m giggling at hedgehogs dancing the merengue, wondering where in Scotland TartanFerret lives (flashing back to my own glorious Junior Year Abroad at Edinburgh),and vicariously revelling in QoD’s luxurious day. My appreciation of this site and its regulars goes way beyond The Cute, unless I can say The Cute encompasses us all, in a universally wholeistic sort of way… We are all One in The Cute.

    Thank you EVERYONE! Special hugs and kisses to Meg and Teho and NomTom and company for making my aches go away so nicely. Mwwwah!

    [Don’t forget the Prongs, Sparky, CSO… 😉 – Ed.]

  84. RE: Hammie in a Hat: Many spring training venues sell the world’s most awesome baseball-watching foodstuff: Taco in a Helmet!

  85. skippymom says:

    QofD, are you bored yet from having nothing you have to do? As a single working mother of four kitties, I can’t think when I’ve ever found myself in this situation.

    P.S. I put unsalted butter on bunnies, a touch of honey on kittens, and I wash them down with Earl Grey. Turtles and lizards I dip in olive oil and enjoy with a Campari and soda.

    [Just make sure you never put insulted butter on bunnies. THEY DISAPPROVE – Ed.]

  86. Queen of Dork says:

    *squeak, squeak*
    SoCalSis: Tucks SoCalSis into bed. Good Heavens! She’s burning with fever! *gives SoCalSis ice chips and also some broth. Tucks hamster under her chin, tucks puppies and kittens under the quilt with her. changes the water in the tulips on the table next to her. Here…here’s a pasickie. Gives her hugs and smooches and leaves room.*
    *squeak, squeak, squeak. Nurse Stef, signing off on medical chart.*

  87. Queen of Dork says:

    skippymom: No, I’m not bored. I’m so enjoying my dang self. I don’t think I’ve felt this relaxed in years.

  88. Resriechan says:

    (In re: Nurse Stef:

    She’s SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO effishient, izzn’t she?
    And — how elegantly squeaky, her nurse shooz are!!!)

    (sigh of admiration)

  89. SoCalSis says:

    SoCalSis is smiling gently as she drifts off to sleep, puppies and kittens are the best ‘hot water bottles’ ever, specially kittens cause they purr as they make everything cozy. All better now… *sigh*… dreams of warm fuzzy peeps of all types… zzzzzzz

  90. Resriechan says:

    @ SoCalSis:

  91. My Friday Butt Tickle?

  92. andrea b. says:

    Ok, I get it! Nobody knows what MFTB is! Everybody’s bluffin’! Everybody’s making up his / her own MFTB! Which is what makes this country great.

    [Heck, *I* don’t even know what MFTB is. However, a number of folks have guessed/remembered MFBT correctly. There’s even a link to the original. – Ed.]

  93. marthava says:

    The hamster with the spaghetti slayed me all over again. So freaking funny!!!!!

  94. victoreia says:

    Psst! Click the link in fifthsonata’s #11 comment….gives nice explanatory pic of MFBT……

    enlightened now

  95. victoreia says:

    @Teho: a thumbnail of the whole shebang? (thinks…) ‘kay, mebbe not.

  96. Should it worry me that I actually recognize all of these thumbnails and remember them from when they were originally posted?! Who knew a gal could spend so much time In Pursuit of the Cute! 🙂

    Thanks for the thumbnail trip down memory lane Theo! Great way to kick off the weekend.

  97. Q.o.D. Yay you!! enjoy that rarest of all things… a free day! Do something you would like. If you can remember what that is.
    Yay for bite-sized-cute-bits, I still love the white tropical fuzzballs, and Maru, and the bunbuns, and giant ribber ducky and….

  98. When I first spied the Qte Montage, I said “Oooooooooh!!!” and “Aaaaaaaahhh!!!”;
    Then I decided my favorite was The Kitty in the Pink Cast; Nooooo: it’s Maru wearing the Seafood Shell Hat; No wait!: it’s Waffle with the Bee-Stung Foot; Or the Bebbeh Otters; Mebbee Cat Yodeling Man, or Happy Pig??? Ohhhh, I give up: they’re ALL FAVS!!!! 😆

  99. QofD: Is it silly to suggest you assert yourself and take control of Sam? Or is that just too laughable to even take seriously? Does he not get that he needs you, if only for your ability to operate the can opener? 🙂

  100. MamaLana says:

    I was so happy to see my favorite snack of all time, Owsche kitty with the pink cast! YUMMY!!!

  101. skippymom says:

    @ Rachael, “take control of” a cat?! Omigod you are just too funny, you joker, you!

  102. Hey, is Tickly Armpit Slow Loris in there, or did I miss him/her?

    [Actually… huh! I could’ve sworn that thumbnail was in ONE of these. 😕 Turns out, that post NEVER HAD a thumbnail. Here’s the video for old time’s sake, though – Ed.]

  103. I’ll have a double helping of baby otters, please, and
    pass the sugar glider.

  104. Candy Williams says:

    What the heck is the little creature on line 10, far right, just below the pig-schnoz?? : )

  105. Sugarsnap says:

    most fluffy bunday time!

  106. Does anyone know where I can find a full size version of the toad being petted by that finger. Super cute. Link? THANK YOU! 5th from the top I believe.

    [Using the search phrase “ toad poke” on Google returns this link. Cheers! – Ed.]

  107. AmberNormal says:

    I love the PeepShow strippers!!!

  108. lol love the peeps XD
