Update: We’re coming for you DILBERT!

(And Ansel Adams!)

PEOPLE! Thanks to you, we surpassed the Glee and Sierra Club calendars and are heading for the Top 3 calendars on Amazon!

Wow! Thank you all for your supports!

Learn more about the 2011 calendars here.



  1. I cannot tell you how excited I am! I ordered mine (page a day and wall) on Amazon yesterday and they arrived TODAY!!! And I din’t even get special shipping! The only drawback is that my daughter has spotted them and wants to lay claim to them. Hmmm, (heads back to Amazon).

  2. Hearty congrats….Beiber defeated…phew. I kinda feel sorry for Betty…but…

  3. Woohoo!

  4. Go, go, GOOOOOO!!

  5. EEEK! Just went and checked and it’s dropped back to 8th! C’mon Peeps we gotta rally teh troops!

  6. I just ordered two of them!!! *waves pom poms*

  7. Wait wait wait just a minute.

    Dilbert is still popular?

  8. maybe it’s like this: dad decides to find a gift for a son who is in the army and stationed somewhere far, far away. he peruses junior’s amazon wishlist and sees the Cute Overload: 365 Days of Impossibly Cute Photos Calendar 2011!

    “what’s this? my son wants a calendar of cute animals? hrrmmm… well, let’s see what the reviews say. ‘not funny… corny… anthropomorphizing…’

    “WHU–?! i don’t believe it! my son? it can’t be true! well no son of mine is gonna go all fruity kabootie with the qte’s! i’ve heard about those animals who comment at cuteoverload! i hear there’s been talk of a ‘men of cuteoverload calendar!’ well, that may be fine for this guy, that guy, or this guy, these guys (def those guys), this guy, that one, this one, and of course that one, but if there’s gonna be any anthropsoemthingsomething happening to my son it’ll be in a cubicle, like it does for everyone else!

    “now beam me up some dilbert, scott adams! i’ll even pay the shipping!

    “and quit making my comments pink, dammit!”  yar!



    and that’s how dilbert became popular.

    Dear Betty

    I know you are reading CO (are you……Q of D? ONoSheD?). I know your heart is truly with us. But we need this, we really need this. No one will start a FB page to get CO to host SNL (not that the Cute Overlords couldn’t; geez, besides the obvious abundance of talent, we come with our own editor/censor Sharpy, who can easily whisk someone into the Mod Lounge if they go rogue). It’s just that the lives AND CAREERS of millions of prosh animals is at stake. Sure we have the breakout stars like Maru and Boo, but what about the kitties on the Roomba? Leetle piggies? Disapproving buns (wouldn’t you like to to see those bun frowns turned upside down?) Hammies with fantastic danglage? Anyway…if you could just help us a little, anything at all, on our way to the top, it would be most appreciated. And in deep gratitude, I’m sure the Cute Overlords would provide you with a first edition of the Men of CO calendar (uhhh…coming soon)? Thank you, and good day

  10. As long as there are still point-headed bosses, Dilbert will always be popular.

  11. i’m all like, tsyah!

  12. Sharpy – How can Dad be sure, that Dilbert isn’t, some cockamamie pinko commie plot, to undermine his sons essence?

    as much as I love the calendars and fully intend to buy one, I can’t bring myself to buy any calendar before January, when they are all at least 50% off…. sorry Meg! Oh, and people, go write some reviews! The calendar has only 4 stars because of one really negative review!

  15. Oh noooooooooooooo! CO’s dropped to 6th and junk! People get out your wallets, order you some calendars!

    (And yes, that was all in this voice, in my head:)

  16. I bought one, shipped today!

  17. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    @ Lewis/Clark — in response to question:

    I am, indeed, in reading-ness…howsomever I no gots credit card nor debit card nor bookstore near my apt ….so buyingk online no workie fur me.

    But I cheer your advocacy and add my enthusiasm. GO CUTE GO!!

  18. HG, he would never fall for a trick like that.

    “no son of mine is going around having essence and that’s that.”

    (his words, not mine.)

  19. My wall calendar came yesterday and I immediately squeed. Today I’m showing it off around the office.

    Meg and Co: we need the wall calendar as an app where you can click on the little pictures and they zoom. And we need another t-shirt purchasing opp. The one I ordered a few years back came in too small and I passed it on to a small child, so I’m SHIRTLESS. plz plz plz plz plz plz

  20. omg, i just lol at lewis’n’clark post. HILLarious. Go CO! Go-go CO! and looks like 2011 is going to be cuter than 2010. duh!

  21. Lewis n' Clark says:

    sorry – I was speculating that maybe YOU or Q of D were actually Betty White hiding out on CO. Wasn’t trying to apply pressure to buy the cal (however, I will apply pressure should you have a gushing open wound; I know how to do that)


  23. melissa belissa says:

    i bought 3. for me, my mom and friend back in L.A. now we can all collectively squee together each morning when we tear that paper and see the new cuteness beneath the previous cuteness.

  24. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    Well, a’righty, then !!!

  25. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    (tangentially related)

    This was one of the 2 % of commercials, which I have EVER actually ENJOYED.
    Just to be clear, I LOATHE 98 % of commercials, and I’m approx 975 years old, so I’ve seen a lotta television marketing. Thank you.

  26. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    all’s fine. So far no gushing open wounds but thanks for the available services; they might be necessary if Meg, Pyrit & co keep providing Tha Cute. 🙂

    Hahahahahaha! 🙂

  28. Queen of Dork says:

    What was the name of that show where they’d say, “Will the REAL Betty White…please stand up!” Or something like that?

  29. O NO He/ She/ It DI-unt!!! says:

    The orig. one of which you’re thinking was called “What’s My Line”. A similar-based program in about 2000-2002 (with Paula Poundstone and John O’Hurley) .
    (I just sent links about each, to
    your personal email — MWAH!!! 🙂 )
