A while back, Meg featured some orangumazing photos of Suryia and Roscoe, the orangutan and hound-dog buddies. Now, thanks to sender-inner Marilyn T., you can see the heartwarming story of how they met. On your mark, get set, awwww!
We’ve all seen them, envied them: They are the Cubicles of Unfathomable Awesomeness, beacons of style in the soulless sea of the modern workplace. Is your cubicle unfathomably awesome? Look for these tell-tale signs:
- Multiple pages from the Cute Overload Page-A-Day Calendar, the only calendar specially formulated to melt away those stressful brain cells.
- The almost-nearly-completely-as-cool calendar for the ASPCA!
- Pen. (Pens rock!)
- Telephone with more buttons than the Millennium Falcon.
- Web browser open to Google Analytics, bringing instant karmic enlightenment to statistics junkies.
And the crowning touch, the crème de la cool…
- Puppy in your in-box!
Cool pup + cool job = cool you, Ayumi S.
Sometimes, truth is funnier than fiction, so here’s sender-inner Kimberley H.:
This is little baby Rufi, our four-month-old chihuahua. He loves a bit of warmth, so when Nick my boyfriend called me from the bathroom to “show me something cute” I was initially a bit unsure… then lo and behold what do I see but Rufi nestled in the warm underwear nook!
The whole human-rights problem was upsetting enough, but now the People’s Republic of China has crossed the Rubicon and gone too far! From sender-inner Kristina D. comes this startling news (emphasis ours):
We were recently traveling in China and Tibet – were you aware that Cute Overload is blocked there?! It’s understandable though, outrageous cuteness threatens social stability, which is their greatest fear… We thought we would surely perish from CO withdrawal! But luckily there was plenty of cute Tibetan pooch action in Lhasa to keep us going.
How dare they block Teh Qte! This outrage can be met with nothing less than… The Glorious People’s Tongue-Hance of Democracy! PTHTFHTFTHPTT!
“… and I really must say how nice it is to meet such a good listener, someone I can open up to and really express myself, because in this day and age, the art of conversation is on its last legs, what with texting and e-mail and all the distractions of modern life, I mean nobody really sets aside the time anymore for a good, old-fashioned chat, in fact I was just telling someone other day…”
Peeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek-aboo, Steve E.!
What a weird dream! I was running and running, but never getting anywhere. Then this giant hand pushed me around on my back, and it felt so good I started doing it by myself. And it kept happening over and over, like some kind of endless loop…
