How Can I Keep From Singing?

I apologize in advance to all you well-rounded music aficionados out there for my dissonant genre-mashing; my own tastes are… eclectic.  But it’s Saturday, it’s gorgeous, and darned if I don’t feel like a little Pawl, Yawn, Jawrge and Ringtail this morning.  ♫ Here comes the sun, doodle-oo-doo… wait, no, Meg’s got a better idea:

We can work it out
We can make this whole damn thing work out
With a little nom, we can lay it down
Can’t you feel this website exploding?

[Sing in Sir Paul McCartney voice]

Sender-Inner Lori W. FOUND ANOTHER ONE!

Pug Prebuttal

Peeps, I just had to re-post this one.  I mean, sorry, um… I wanted to run this game-changing action item back up the flagpole to see what paradigm shifts.  Mike, take it away; I gotta walk/trot/run to a webinar.

Gentlemen, We Have a Situation

“It has come to my attention that our company is faced with a crisis. Now, I want to be pro-active here, so I’ve called this little pow-wow to make sure we’re all on the same page about this thing.

“Now, men, a crisis is nothing but an opportunity mixed with danger. In fact, it was the ancient Egyptians who combined the symbols for opportunity and danger because they had never heard it before, the word crisis, I mean, but anyway, if we work as a team, we can seize this bull by the horns (or maybe it was the Chinese), and think outside the box to fast-track a best-in-breed, synergistic solution that will facilitate a sea change throughout our enterprise.

“And remember, there is no “I” in team, but there is an “I” in pie … in, er, meat pie, and the anagram of meat is team, and … mmm, pie … I’m sorry, what was the question again?”

I think I used to work for this guy, Kate M.

We maded you a martini, Sandy B., but we drinked it.
(Recipe based on the classic James Bond martini. More recipes here.)

Sender-inner Jessica L. writes: “Okay, here’s a strange one for you. But every time I look at these pictures I think how cute it is, so I thought I’d send it on in. It is a turkey made out of a pine cone who has clearly befriended a sprouted onion. Seriously, check it out. Or maybe I’m just strange.”

[shifty eyes] Thanks… [looks over shoulder]

Oh hey, I found the onions.

Yeah, it’s strange. But in a good butter duck or tree sweater way.

Behold a gaggle of color-coded Peeps riding multi-colored horses.

Even stranger is the text accompanying the submission: “These little guys deserve fun too.”

Um. OK. [shifty eyes in disbelief]

Katy M., unique. Very unique.

Some of you are already saying “NOOOOOOOO”

Peeps, you got your comment controversies, y’know, sometimes it seems like every other post. Then there’s your capital-C Commentroversy, at which point you’ve pretty much seen it all.

THEN, along comes Buddy. And this hepcat was never emo. :lol:

Hefty kitteh “Buddy” is a [ahem] a couch straddler and paw dangler.
The internet is just weird.  Fact of life.
The sender-inner’s sister was kind enough to have a local artist CAPTURE the REDONKULOUSNESS by making a miniature version of “Buddy” too. Hee!

Birthday_statue_2Birthday_statue2_2

Oooooof!
You might think folks would have better things to do.  I might agree.

Kate V., somehow I suspect you’re not the ONLY ONE with a couchstraddlerpawdangler. Nice work.

Summer in the Suburbs

It was a gorgeous, gorgeous day yesterday.  Nice breeze, no rain, big back yard full of family & friends & food.  Even the deck was in good shape, finally.

Sadly, though, not everybody was allowed outside... ;)

Oh, I hear you back there. Making “kitty kissing noises” trying to get my atten-shons.

Well go ahead and beg. Caturday was yesterday. You’ll never make it up to me.

...and on a LEASH, no less.  I ask you!

Ali B. Good luck — [shaking head]

Everyone Knows It’s Kitty

Hey, kids! What’s fun for a girl and a boy? Clicking that button to the left, then starting the video, that’s what.

Could You Please Hit the Snooze Hunch?

Really, I’m too tired, and besides, you’re the one who wanted the “Hunchback of Notre Dame clock/radio with authentic bell sounds,” so just give Quasimodo there a pat on the back and shut that thing off, thanks.

Harrumph Day

Caturday? HAH!! Saturday is the new Wednesday!  It’s like “Hump Day”, only different.  Remember, you heard it here first on Cute Overload — the internet’s premier cutting-edge authority on what day it isn’t.  And it certainly isn’t September 18, 2008.

In the remote plains of Wazoolooland, we come upon an all-too-familiar scene: A fierce camel locked in mortal combat with the small but wily plastic bucket.

Ah, we meet again, my old nemesis ...

Saracen pig! Roman cow! Take THIS! And THIS!

For the bucket, its only chance is to raise its defenses and hope his adversary tires …

... there's the kick, aaaannnd -- GOOOOOOAAAL!!!

Yeah, I'd like to see that lame-o walrus pull this off.

Alas, even the bucket’s tough protective shell is no match for the camel’s ruthless onslaught …

No, we're not making a new "nomming" tag.  Please stop asking.

… and with one final bite, the struggle is over.

FOR GREAT JUSTICE!! ***CHOMP***

Victorious, the mighty camel cries out his call of triumph.

THIS ... IS ... SPARTAAAAAAA!
We’ll be back with more of “Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom” after these messages.

They sell bucket insurance, by the way.  I'm just saying.

Yes, sir, Gelosia … that’s your “Baby.” ( More photos here )

Caturday Schmaturday

Peeps, I am sooooo over the whole “caturday” deal. Puhlease. What we need is a nice shiny SATURDAY MARSUPIAL SNOUT. From two-thousand-seven!

Well-intentioned Rebecca M. assures moi that Opossums are PERFECTLY wonderful and not the slightest bit evil, and sends this photo as proof.
possum pinup
Rebecca M. claims:

-They RULE in the Moist Nosicle category.
-They have a thumb without a nail on their back feet.
-They have elaborate whiskers.
-Their ears are pink when they’re babies and turn black as they grow up.
-They CARRY LEAVES CURLED UP IN THEIR TAILS – Come ON!
-And let’s not forget they carry their babies in a pouch – North America’s only marsupial

Hmmm. I’m thinking. I’m thinking… LET ME THINK! [shifty eyes]

Morpheccino

Go ahead.  Click my nose.  I know you want to.

It’s Friday. Long weekend ahead. Cheers! ;)
