Happy 8th Birthday To Cute Overload!

Cute Overload’s FIRST POST was back on this date in 2005 at this very moment, 6:44am PT. (I think technically it wuz the 25th, but first post was on the 26th, so whatevs.) Happy Birthday to us! w00t!

And a few from way out in left-field, ’cause that’s just how we roll.

So celebrate the day, and have a MEELK (or, um, formula) on us!
