Google Hearts Us, They Really Do!

You had us at "hello," Google.  You had us at "hello…"

Yay_co_copy

It turns out that we’re among Google Engineer’s favorite blogs.  Googlite Mike Knapp even made a button for us so you can quickly add Cute Overload to your Google Reader list.

Of course, by reading Cute Overload via a RSS reader you’re quite literally taking food (ad revenue) out of our mouths, but we’re reeeaaallly lazy too, so we can’t blame you.

We heart you too, Google.  In fact, we use Google Apps to run the place.  Well, only Mail, but that’s another conversation…

Is it me or are Corgis getting EVEN STUBBIER!?

People, we’ve always known Corgis are basically a series of nubs, but the stubbiness is getting out of hand in recent submissions. I give you:

Exhibit A:
At first, things look relatively normal here—but let’s take a closer look.

Exhibit B:
As you can see this puppeh is mostly stubs, held together by a large mass called a "body".

Rubyohyeah

Exhibit C: [Jury gasps]
See what I mean? He’s almost one large pup mass with six nubules (four ‘feet’ and two ‘ears’)

Exhibit D: [Jury dumbfounded at evidence]
This picture prolly explains it best. I imagine this guy can only slither across the floor at this point.

I’m a Pebble Pal and I’m OK

I sleep all night and I sit all day.
I’m the perfect pet, I never eat
You’ll have no allergies.
On Wednesdays I sit even more
Sprinklers wash over me

I knock down birds. I skip ‘cross ponds.
I like to press wild flowers.
Warm me in an oven
I’ll sit on your back for hours

27817_8_468

I hold doors open, papers down,
I’m faithful as a clock
I’m pretty cute to look at, but
I’m dumb as a rock.

“A tiny plastic box! I must put my head in it!”

“OH NO MY HEAD IS IN THE BOX! HELP! GET IT OFF GET IT OFF! Oh look at this box! What a lovely place to put my head! NOOOOOOOO!”

The ongoing saga of Maru was written by Lucy, with video link by LurkerType!

Maru the Kitteh responds to our allegations

Dsc_3343_2

We just caught up with “Maru”, the indulgent, box-loving kitteh we featured in the post below. We thought an intervention was needed. The conversation did not go so well.

Cute Overload: Thank you for coming forward after we found your YouTube video, Maru.

Maru: [Hissing sound]

Cute Overload: We know how enticing boxes are, and we are just trying to help—

Maru: [Multiple paw swipes]

Cute Overload: We brought a few of your hamster friends so that you could see how many folks care truly about you.

Maru: [Maru attempts to eat hamsters then proceeds back to boxes]

Special thanks to Jennifer G. who alerted us of Maru’s name and website in the Comments.

Please. Won’t you help this kitteh?

I hesitate to bring you these images, as they are intense, moving and sad. But you must see them. This kitteh needs Boxhab like no other kitteh we’ve seen. Please, won’t you donate tuhday? [head tilt]

Yes, Alex H., it’s very “‘tockular” too., but this kitteh is crying for help. Stop focusing on his ‘tocks.

Winston reaches new levels of redonkulousness

When you woke up this morning afternoon, I know what your first thought was. WHAT did Winston go as for Halloween!? Well, I’m delighted to tell you that Rich and his beau over at FourFour delivered the redonk again.

Without further ado, it’s Winston as… Post Makeover E.T.!

Post

Of course! Post Makeover E.T.! Makes perfect sense! [shaking head in disbelief]

Oh, and Rudy went as Elll-iii-ot.

Mr. Nosevember…IS BACK!

Ruhmemeber last year, People?

I know you do.

Mr. Nosevember is BACK.

Boo

Cindy L., you’ve ushered in the great month of November again. Thank you.

All Hallow’s Art Crawl

Ah, good eeeeeevening.  [ominous pipe organ!]  Welcome, my esteemed guests.  [creaky iron gate!]  As some of you are no doubt already aware [flapping bat wings!] …today is a most auspicious day indeed.  [distant echoing howl!]  Yes, my pretties, the time is upon us at last!  Tonight, we shall celebrate:    [cork pop!]  [duck call!]  [whoopee cushion!]

If you would excuse me for just a moment.

(wait, wait, dude, we got a whole WAREHOUSE of foley effects, c’mon hey leggo HEY)
[dismissive door slam!]

A thousand apologies.  If I may resume?  *ahem* …tonight, once more, we celebrate:
Reality-Casual Friday.

Please help yourselves to hors d’oeuvres, which can be found in the plastic jack-o-lanterns, and as always, please avoid all eye contact with the Bunnilisk.  Shall we move inside?  It does appear that there is an unseasonable thunderstorm approaching…

Lightning_cat

Why yes, that is a Wachter.  I actually framed that one myself.  Thank you!  And if you flatterers would direct your attention over here by the rabbit cage, I just finished this one today — no, over here — don’t — not down there!  Oh for… didn’t I say?!

Morphoween_340x400

Tsk.  That’s more for the statue garden, then — though how we’ll find room for all of these is quite beyond me.  Hmm, perhaps that abandoned and oddly-zoned graveyard next door could be annexed… [contented carrot munching!]
