  1. Dude! Who knew you were into pole dancin’?

  2. Fird Birfle says:

    OMG Meg, you are *SO* gangsta!!!!!
    — Kinda like this guy:

  3. best. headline. ever.

  4. Theresa says:

    Chillin’ like a villain. :mrgreen:

  5. Tigress, did you see me?!?! I was all like HI-YA! I kung fu-ed their asses!! But, uhhh, how’d I get in this tree?

  6. Haha! This post spawned the first commentroversy that I was aware of on CO.

    Ah, those were the days!

  7. CuteOverload.com! The family friendly site for all ages, bitches!

  8. Red Toenails says:

    NOW THAT’S FUNNY OUT LOUD.

  9. Haha! If you can read panda body language, as Meg clearly can, that is EXACTLY what he is saying!

  10. Color me perplexed, how could a panda up a tree possibly ignite a commentroversy :?:

  11. Rachael says:

    Gellin’ like a felon. :)

  12. “I used to think CO was a safe place for my Precious offspring to be but with the nashty ,language in your heading which will damage their fragile minds I am OFF !! ” (flounce)

    It was like that, Gigi :)

  13. I understand the title but I thought this was a family-friendly site. I can’t let my young daughter visit this site if you contine to do this (and wouldn’t buy your products anymore).

  14. Oh my yes Auntie…lots of outrage, rightous indignation, and hacking of hairballs. With much flinging of puddin’ too. Good times. :)

  15. p.s. – i love this pic. the panda ‘tude is awsome.

  16. If I remember correctly, the uproar was over the bitchy word. Ooops, I said it.

  17. Aaaah, good ol’ search-n-found. Original commentroversy: http://cuteoverload.com/2006/01/20/sup_my_bitches/

  18. “The family friendly site for all ages”

    what?! where did you see that? perhaps we should be reported.

  19. what? where did you see “family-friendly?” would you feel better if you reported us?

  20. Ooh, a threat!

  21. SlaveToCat says:

    Ohh the language on that little “Leather” Bear.

    Where is the ivory soap, grandmother will get this little potty mouth cleaned up right away. ;)

  22. Andi in NC says:

    In the inimitable words of Snoog Dogg from “Gin and Juice” – “Laid Back (got my mind on my money and my money on my mind)…”

  23. Ha–it’s 2006 all over again!

  24. I just clicked on the “reported” hyperlink and found this comment about Cute Overload:

    What a wonderful, caring community this is! The moderators and commenters really care about the integrity of the site and maintaining it as a friendly, happy place to visit. There is a camaraderie among the people who frequent the site that is lacking in many other places. There is genuine concern when a “regular” hasn’t been heard from in a while, compassion when when an animal or human family member is ailing and an outpouring of support when an animal or human passes on. These are the kind of people that we all want as neighbors and this is the kind of website that I would like all others to be like!

  25. Theresa says:

    Wait, does this mean if we have enough commentroversies, I’ll stop aging?? 8O

  26. flutterby says:

    I was reading britches. not bitches….my proofing sux!

  27. kibblenibble says:

    :-)

  28. OMG. The title of this post. that’s a keeper.

  29. Sup my #@*&%s what why #@*&%s???????????????????????????????

  30. I have such fond memories of that commentroversy that I say this to my two dogs every day when I get home.

  31. what IS shocking, is the nastiness of all of you ‘cute lovers’ responding to someone who is just expressing their opinion to a title.

    I guess civility isn’t cute enough for you?

  32. scarletgunn says:

    you guys are so insensitive to the hardships that parents face these days. Like the mean man that asked my darling Jr to stop kicking his seat on the airplane. can’t he see the poor child is bored? if they would have just offered a Disney movie on the plane like i requested it would have been fine. and like i have to go to Chucky Cheese, because diners at La Franswah were complaining about DS throwing his penne and screaming. it’s not my fault they don’t have dinosaur shaped processed chicken pieces for him! and don’t think i don’t notice Sally from cubicle 10 giving me those dirty looks when i ask her to finish my project because i have to leave early again for my precious angels ballet recital/lacrosse match/pageant gown fitting/school play/fingerpainting class/mandarin lessons!

    now dirty words on the internet? is nowhere safe for our sweet darlings?

  33. Oh heavens – Commentroversy at it’s finest. I vaguely remember those days – I was always late to the party, but I had fun reading about it. I still wonder why people think that threatening to leave a site is going to change anything. Doesn’t seem to matter if it’s a blog, a webserial, a webcomic, etc., people insist on thinking that their one opinion is going to be so valuable to the author that said author will change everything just for them. Egotists!

  34. Careful you toungue is about to burst through your cheek.. ROFLMAO!

  35. LOL it was a great commentroversy wasn’t it.

  36. It’s more a defense of the site. For years, people show up accusing the site of no longer being family friendly (it never claimed to be), or otherwise ranting and raving over what most of us find to be harmless. Some of these folks intentionally aim to spark a flame war, which is no fun for the community, so they’re cut off quickly.

  37. Mary (the first) says:

    awww. Well said, Maggie, well said! :D

  38. What? Where? says:

    The only thing I see controversial about this is that the panda is apparently only talking to female dogs while ignoring the rest of us. Rude!!

  39. swedeypie says:

    but… but… why is coot panda so misogy… miss agon… so mean to girls? no funny :o(

  40. Andi in NC says:

    actually, that makes it even more hilarious….

  41. Andi in NC says:

    indeed!!

  42. if i panda could speak, i don’t think it would use that word

  43. yup, that’s why meg used it.

  44. panda is not real. panda is a picture. words are made up by a person who thought it was funny. that person created this website. so a lot of people think she’s funny. therefore, it is funny.

    panda likes girls.

  45. “Panda: Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.”

  46. scarletgunn says:

    it’s not the disagreement ( to me anyway) it’s the bullying from the Mommy Martyr Club- “change your site or else i won’t buy stuff from you!” it’s all over, and I’m sick of it. I can’t even bring a peanut butter sandwich to work, because someone could get some on them and their kid will have an imaginary reaction ( no doubt brought on by his parents hysterics and not the peanut butter) to a mostly imaginary condition made up by his parents so they can whine to the world that they are the long suffering parents of a child with a *gasp* condition.

    /rant over (no offense to people with actual allergies)

  47. later he’ll be ghostin’.

  48. YAW HAW!

  49. @vicky oops, i just realized you were joking.

    and i’ll bet maggie’s post was P.S.*

    *pre-Sharpy (aka “the baddest moderator in the whole damn town”**)

    **After Theo, of course.

  50. HAR!

  51. hey, our eyes are not garbage cans!

  52. THANK you.

  53. FTW!

  54. skippymom says:

    Buy what products?

  55. skippymom says:

    Mine are.

  56. Oh Scarletgunn… how I wish there were more parents out there like you!! Wouldn’t the world be a better place with even more spoiled little children who will be running our country in 30 years?? :)

  57. I agree with you about the Mommy Martyr Club…but if you think food allergies are imaginary, you’re mistaken. I knew a kid who had to go to the emergency room a number of times, and was at serious risk of losing his life, because he was allergic to pretty much everything. He couldn’t leave the house without his Benedryl and his Epi-Pen. So let’s not make light of kids who have very real “conditions.”

  58. skippymom says:

    Rude ba**ard!

  59. scarletgunn says:

    right. that’s why i wrote “mostly”. and as far as anecdotes go, I know about 20 people who have self diagnosed their kids very dangerous food allergies so they can ban specific foods from places even though they don’t carry Epipens because they have never seen a doctor.

  60. Its in the attitude of the pic.
    Cute.

  61. scarletgunn says:

    in addition, and them i’m done:

    i’m not making light of food allergies. I am pointing out that kowtowing to the screaming maternal majority makes everyone suffer. I don’t have kids, i don’t go to my companies daycare area ever, and yet PB is banned? it’s ridiculous. and NOT ONE of these kids carries emergency medicine- I’ve talked to the day care lady.

    some people are just not happy unless they can be offended and self righteous 17 times a day over the stupidest things. those people need to shut the hell up.

    IMO.

  62. marthava says:

    omg Sharpy…that made me LAUGH!

  63. marthava says:

    LOL

  64. Ahh I just read the whole comment smackdown from 2006. That was freakin awesome. And this is still awesome. Favorite quote from the 2006 affair? You got it:

    “Considering how many children frequent this site, and as a teacher, I don’t think the vulgar language is extreme enough.”

    I think this post rocks! People just like to instigate instead of seeing a word they don’t like, sighing, and clicking to a different website. Ain’t no thang.

  65. brinnann says:

    Rhubarb? NOW I’m offended! :shock:

  66. I personally LOLed when I read this headline. It’s so perfect with the picture and the hovertext is even funnier now than in 2006. Cute animals and hilarious captions…that’s what this site is all about.

  67. skippymom says:

    RHUBARB! RHUBARB!

  68. swedeypie says:

    you right Sharpy. is funny. should call ALL girls bitches… hee hee!

  69. kodalai says:

    Just checking — was this comment a joke? I mean, did you go to the original site and are imitating the style of the original nuffers?

  70. kodalai says:

    My favorite was this one:

    “as a biologist, i find the inaccuracy in nomenclature offensive. female pandas are called sows. i feel i can no longer refer my scientist friends to this site.”

    Curse you, Meg! *shakes fist*

  71. brinnann says:

    Yeah? Well, I’ll see your “rhubarb,” and raise you a PA-SICKIE!!!
    :twisted:

  72. brinnann says:

    *sigh* I miss the puddin’ flingin’. It was fun.

  73. brinnann says:

    What by-products?

  74. lol!!

  75. Tabitha says:

    I say it to my two cats every day, too. As of today, that is. If I remember.

  76. What? Where? says:

    I second hilz’ “lol!!” and raise a “ROFL”

  77. Mary (the first) says:

    I’ll bet anything most kids, even very young ones, have heard this word or worse in their lives. Just sayin’.

  78. wannadance says:

    at nearly 70 yo, i am probably one of the oldest members here. i love breakdancing/popping/in all forms. i love hiphop/i love the music: it’s a language, means a lot, needs to be listened to. it’s future history. we should be paying attention, yall. although i am on the downward side of history, i still want to know what is coming up. used to be innocent, then got very ‘dirty’ and challenging, now more religious and examines moral questions.
    granted the word ‘bitch’ was terrible in my youth and we never said it, but now it’s just another integral part of a language and a culture.
    pay attenshuns!

    cool ole lady.
    wearing a huge rolling stones tee, the one with the leeeps on it…ankle length jeans skirt, hair naturally looks like dreads, green glittery nail polish, (prosh expensive kind) purple wheelchair. and it all goes together, don’t look demented at all… don’t tell ME i ain’t kool…

  79. wannadance says:

    ‘sows ‘ sounds worse to me…somehow…

    he/she must be kidding…

  80. wannadance says:

    to me, he looks like he ate too much. kinda overly trptophaned.

  81. wannadance says:

    love that so much. wish i had the book. fave form of humor…

  82. wannadance says:

    scarlett, thank you so much for all your posts. hitting nail on haid, rather hit overly entitled parents and helplessly indoctrinated kids on the haid. i hope the kids run away to the wilderness en masse and all get poison ivy and stuff. life is too short to claim entitlement to ever’ damned thang…

    woooooo, go scarlett!

  83. wannadance says:

    uh oh. in mod lounge. pass that bottle…

  84. Theresa says:

    *SPLOCK!*

  85. Theresa says:

    Yeah, you email your mother with a keyboard like that?

  86. Theresa says:

    snerk

  87. Blanche says:

    I would like to fling some puddin. That sounds bitchen.

  88. Theresa says:

    At a carefully calibrated temperature, rhubarb pie makes a pleasing alternative to pudding. :mrgreen:

  89. TrixandSam says:

    You’re the best, Wanna-d!!! I bet you totally rock that entire look. I plan to have your attitude when I’m 70.

    Try and stop me bitches!

  90. TrixandSam says:

    *waves giant “you go gurl!” flag”

  91. TrixandSam says:

    that’s ezackly what i think when i hear some of my guy friends call each other that!

    (words hurt only if you let them.)

  92. TrixandSam says:

    erm…. Glenlivet? Effen? (can I say that here???) some Absinthe?!!???

  93. TrixandSam says:

    Thorry, that was supposed to be a reply to wannadance’s request while in the mod lounge.

  94. Theresa says:

    Oooh, if there’s any Oban . . . I love single malt Scotch!

  95. VANILLA PUDDINGKS FOR EVARWHAR. :P :P :P

  96. [eyes slideways]

  97. I think I like the way you think.

  98. SNORGLETINIS. :mrgreen:

  99. i almost prefer “bitches’ over the “just sayin’ . Almost

  100. oh stop stirring up trouble, theo.
    :)

  101. the ones by cuteoverload.

    the ones over there.

  102. Oh dear. I think you’re not a very regular visitor to this site. I do hope you haven’t been passing this link onto your under-10 kiddies…if you read previous posts you would know very well that this is a fun site for adults only (that sounds bad)

  103. Oh yeah, last message was directed @ AM, who confused Cuteoverload as…a product-selling website? baroo?

  104. I dunno, I’ve only ever heard women say this phrase to each other. Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems like the girl-version of ‘sup my homies. Or maybe this means different things to different ethno-socio-economic linguistic classes?

  105. Double
    Double
    Toil
    and Trouble… :twisted:

  106. Lewis n' Clark says:

    I think the three meerkats pine cone has just been added to the menu

  107. chanpon says:

    *shocked* I’m boycotting this site right after I testify to Congress how lolcats are ruining the English language.

  108. mintyheart says:

    dude that is such a ghetto site…

  109. hahahaha!

    And this is why my toddler behaves when we go out. We’ve taken him everywhere from fast food to Italian/mexican/chinese/thai/whatever restaurant and he is NOT the kid running around screaming or throwing food.

    If I can make my boy behave, don’t know why no one else seems able to? ;)

    Awesome scarletgunn!

  110. You are Awesome!

  111. hahahaha! Love the headline!

    tough panda.

  112. snerk snerk

  113. *CLINK*

  114. and may i just say, from someone who really, really appreciates well-behaved children, thank you?

  115. LOLZ!

  116. so you’re saying you like to blend in?

    thanks for the great image, btw! now i wanna dance! (“don’t call it a come back, i been here for years!”)

  117. Theresa says:

    Oh come on Sharpy, we smell Nobel Prize!! :D

  118. ashagato says:

    ironically!

  119. Theresa says:

  120. ashagato says:

    I’m in…

  121. kodalai says:

    After doing some research, this seems to be accurate: males are boars and females are sows. Like pigs. Why they use pig words but are called “bears” I don’t know; same reason seals use “cow” and “bull,” I guess.

  122. ashagato says:

    awesome wanna-d! i always imagine you dancing :)

  123. kodalai says:

    Addendum: actually, non-panda bears use the same nomenclature, sow for female and boar for male. Whoda thunk it?

    And, just to leave you on a cheerful note: Pandas are solitary creatures and do not normally band together, but when they do, a group of pandas is known as a cupboard of pandas.

    (That may have been a joke. I’m not sure.)

  124. Fird Birfle says:

    Ain’ much, that’s better,
    than this bit of elegance from Spike Jones et co.

  125. Fird Birfle says:

    “splock” = nice sound FX there, Th :)

  126. Its always the bad boys we find so attractive…sigh.

  127. baby birdie says:

    That was funny, Vicky! :D

  128. baby birdie says:

    Yeah, I wouldn’t exactly call CO family-friendly…
    (thinks of all the other inappropriate cute posts)

  129. brinnann says:

    *rolls out the puddinkwerferschnorglekanonen*

  130. ^ This.

  131. a cupboard of pandas?!

    i just checked MY cupboards, and there was nothing in them but dishes — not even very many of those, because most of ‘em are dirty and waiting patiently to be washed (keep waiting, my little earthenware friends…keeeeep on waiting).

    life is SO unfair. cupboards of pandas and none for me…. and now I’m mad at CO for teaching me just how unfair it all is. won’t somebody think of the children immature grownups?

  132. GAH! HTML fail. Imagine “children” is… strikethroughed? Stricken through? Struck through? Crossed out.

  133. Wannadance, if you’re ever in Toronto, please come dancing with me. I, too, love hip-hop and love dancing, despite my middle-agedness. And I just discovered a place where the crowd is diverse enough and fun enough that everyone and no one fits in, and they play good bad music.

  134. TrixandSam says:

    I was attempting to subtly refer to my gay guy friends who use that phrase. My point is that the use of the term in this context has nothing to do with misogyny. Not by any stretch of the imagination.

  135. and thus the phrase, “the cupboard was bear.”

  136. You are welcome Sharpy. I figure if I can’t stand little monsters like that, I’m going to teach mine better and not allow him to add to the problem.

  137. warrior rabbit says:

    I personally am shocked… by the fact that I’ve been visiting this site for that long! OMGPONIESWTFBBQ!!! Egads, I’m old. Old school. I’m old school. Yeah, that’s it.

  138. Theresa says:

    Everyone’s favorite siege engine. :mrgreen:

  139. skippymom says:

    I call Eddy “Bitches” on occasion. What makes it really funny is that a) he’s male and b) there’s only one of him.
    Needless to say, this makes him even more confused than usual.

  140. victoreia says:

    *snerk*

  141. Like they were tewtally clutching their pearls over it, when all they had to do was NOT LOOK AT THE SITE if it was too darned smutty for them.

    It was the sheesh heard round the world.

  142. Nice!

  143. Hey does any 1 no why after i post a comment it says “Your comment is awaiting moderation”??

  144. yes but i always tell people who read my writing to keep their eyes closed.

  145. now we just have to figure out how to deal with the grown-up versions.

    http://www.peopleofwalmart.com/47290

  146. okay peeps, i need a hand from you all:

    is this comment notable for it’s misspelling, lack of punctuation, or lack reasoning ability? is it a child? is it someone’s attempt to translate their own language into English for the rest of us? is it spam?

    please, help me help you.

  147. privacy trunk

  148. Same author has a second book: Talk To the Hand. Also wonderful!!

  149. @ Sharpy – It’s notable for all of those things you mentioned as well as questionable grammar. The evidence leads me to think that the writer is probably an adult who’s gotten hooked on the language of texting and is using it in an attempt to seem all sorts of cool, not realizing that this site is populated by a myriad of intellectual and learned types.

    p.s. Hope you had high barn boots on for that!! 80

  150. Arrrrgh! Smiley-face FAIL! I wanted one of those big-eyed things. Maybe this? 8O
