Top Ten Cute Photos of 2010

At Cute Overload headquarters, we track the popularity of photos very closely. Y’all remember last year’s Top Ten. We have a refined stat-o-meter attached to every post, that measures everything from minor giggles to guffawing LOLs and reports back. Without further ado, here are the Top Ten Photos of 2010.

Drum roll please:

#10 Seal Bomb!

[Who needs another BOOOORING photo of penguins? Look over here!]

#9 Liquid Courage Makes Him Sleepy

Hey y’all, Cowboy Drumsticks McLongbody here, and I reckon y’all here to see me wrangle some o’ them wild horses and dangerous bulls! Well, I’ll be right ready to go just as soon as I top off this shot of Jim Bea – zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

#8 Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa!



#7 The Impossibirds

Ladies and gentlemen, this just might be the cutest darn thing on the entire Intertubes: Four impossibly cute, perfectly perched, flying floofballs!

No! Not the close-up! Not the close-up!

#6 Some Enchanted Morning

The thing that’s really annoying about animated movies is how they completely mislead the public. Who’s going to believe that animals like kitties & deer are the greatest pals? It’s totally unrealistic!


According to this report, “This picture was taken just before Hoverball Cat took off at supersonic speed. It sounded like a whistle and a scream and the ground caught fire.”

Oh! He’s awake!

Oh, and this video will make happy tears in your eyeses:

#2 I Wonder If Magellan Had This Problem

Karl couldn’t resist a nap while straddling the warm equator between two hemispheres.

#1 Let’s Go For a Catwalk

Since 2008, two French hikers have chronicled their trek from Miami, FL to the tip of South America, a journey of 15,000km (about 9,320 miles) through 13 countries.

But what elevates this hike down a hemisphere straight into the Cuteosphere is the third member of the team: A stray kitten who joined them in Louisiana.

“Get on the bird”

The journey across the cygnet universe.

alextotoro, has changed the game.

Ducklings blowing in the wind

How many sidewalks must a duckling walk down
Before they get totally blown awaaaaaay
How many bricks must a Mom duck cross
Before she totally eats it too
Yes, how many times must the ducklings get tossed
Before they’re forever harmed?
The answer my friend is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind

Apologies to Bob D. and Jennifer V.

“Wow, is this a hot day or what? It’s so hot, I’m molting! Get it? Molting! Like ‘melting,’ but with an ‘O’.”

(I can't believe I'm related to this clown.)

Damn These Artsy-Fartsy Neighborhoods

When the landlord said this nest was “Christo’s latest creation!” I just assumed he meant it was furnished with some junk from IKEA.

I want my security deposit back.
