Gentleman And…Er, Hamster: On Your Marks, Get SET…

You haven’t truly lived life until you’ve watched competitive-eating maniac champion Takeru Kobayashi square off against….a hamster. The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, all in 1:43.

Epic Muzzlepowsche FLAPPAGE

Stella’s back for another C.O. Visit. Stacy M. (Stella’s maid/chef/stylist) says: “Hi again Cute Overload!! Thought you might like this video of sweet Stella napping after a crazy day. I recommend turning up the volume to hear her superb snoozing snorky sounds! Stella loves being featured on Cute Overload, she tells all the dogs in the neighborhood!!”

We’re Still A Little Rattled

If you were around earlier today…you know that we, um, weren’t. So now C.O. is settling back into our perPETual Cute Groove- and first up after the GREAT BLACK OUT OF 2014 is….some total weirdness from The Big J.

Not really too sure what’s going on here. This Big Yellow Thing (allegedly a pear) is hopping up and down, and then jumps in the drink. Really all ya need to know. RN24 says this is “Funasshi, Japan’s squiggly-wiggly pear mascot from Funabashi City in Chiba!”

Well, everyone knows that.

BUT WAIT! ACT NOW and you can watch this one, too! Call me, maybe!

So…How’s Your Day Been So Far?

Sharp-eyed C.O. fans will have noticed that for the last few hours (OK, since the middle of the night) C.O. has been MIA. Well, we discovered the cause. Our crack IT team was deployed overnight for some routine maintenance, and they intentionally inadvertently messed up the TCP or the IP and then that borked our LAN or our FTP or the Packet Switching, screwed up the Secure Socket Layering (SSL,) and blasted us from Austria to Ghana (ouch) to Burundi to just outside Ft. Knox, Kentucky. BAM! Where we sat up until this moment, 12:39pm PT.

Or…….something.

Funny Pictures of Cats and Kittens

And WHY Do We Call It “Toesday,” Marcel?

Marcel is here to let you know. Beans UP, buddy!

“I am a long-time Cute Overload lover, first time submitter! I am a vet working at a practice in downtown Toronto. A couple weeks ago we helped rescue a tiny kitten (we named him Marcel) who was found as a stray in the City. Marcel is thriving now after being treated successfully for a parasite infestation and secondary infection. I hope you enjoy the video!” -Dr. Kimberly H., DVM

Snorgle A Hummingbird?

pot belleh 1“I’m submitting this photo I took of a Hummingbird exhibiting Rule #38,” comments Cuteporter -Lise C. [*Note: "If you have a curved, plump belleh, it's cute." -Ed.] “Alas, I wasn’t allowed close enough to Snorgle it. H-birds have pretty good BEF*, too! We love C.O.!”

[*BEF = Beady Eye Factor. And trying to Snorgle a Supersonic Hummingbird, while truly admirable, seems hopeless. If you do, photos please. -Ed.]

NO More Anchovies After Midnight For Me

[Man, did I have a terr-i-buhl night last night. I must STILL be out of it- look what I wake up to. Bad craziness.]

“This is Niko, the French Bulldog who was featured here before when he got his very first taste of peanut butter. Well, he’s older now (10 months old!) and is still ABSOLUTELY ASTOUNDED by the world’s awesomeness, as personified by his favorite chicken toy!” -Katie M.

Take Me To Your Noms

[I surrender. I wish to meet your leader, the Keeper Of The Kitteh Noms. Beam me up, Scotty. Or whoever.]

Toesday: And Now, An Editorial Reply From Meiko

Meiko has taken exception to all the splashy pub her pal Frankie received on C.O. She has requested equal time, which we are obligated to provide.

“Hey, wait a minute- I am way cuter than that dog! I don’t slobber my water or snore. And I follow Rules that already exist instead of creating my own! See these Hairy Toe Beans, and Peeping Tongue Shots?” -Meiko.

“Despite Meiko’s best efforts to deny it, her and Frankie and great friends!” -Jami G.
