knut_wideweb__470x346,2Remember Knut, everybody’s favorite winter roly poly? The little big dude (left) passed away almost two years ago.

Cheer up though, ‘cuz THERE BE POLAH BEARS IN BUFFALO! This plumpular girl (below) is Luna n’ she was born last November. Current digs: Buffalo Zoo.

Cuteporter Robyn H. checks in: “Lily practices to become a tightrope walker while her big brother Frankie looks on from the safety of a chair. [YO! FRANK--EEEEE! -Ed] Cute Overload may give an aspiring circus cat like Lily the career boost she needs.”

You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!

It was a morning like any other. Janet went out to water the tomatoes and she watered the pygmy possum instead. Just an honest mistake. Hey, it could happen to anybody! She says, “It got a bit wet, but was otherwise OK!”

It was looong ago, before Cute Overload and interwebs and memes and Maru and OMGPonies!!!1!!1! and Boo the dog; it was the (relative) calm before the storm. . .

Does It Need to Be Cute All the Time?

Know what’s wrong with us? We’re in a cuteness rut. We’re all “muzzlepouches” this, and “eyebrow dots” that, but do we ever just look at nature without squeeing?

I mean, look at this picture: it’s a tree. No ‘tocks, no toe beans, just a knotted old tree in the forest. Just this once, could we appreciate a simple thing without going all oochie-goochie on it? Come on, people, let’s broaden our minds, here!

Peter G. says: “Here’s a snuggly rufous phase eastern screech owl i photographed last weekend – wanna share it with the interwebs? More pics here.”

I Want to See My Lawyer!

I didn’t do anything! I was just floating here, minding my own business, when somebody built this cage around me! This is a clear case of entrapment!
