Nod from National Geographic, heard of them?

How tewtelly sweet that National Geographic has a quote from CuteOverload on their site. The quote is in reference to this guy below. Apparently, they liked what we called him… :) See for yourself.


Thanks to all of you who sent this one in. And a special thanks to you, Eddie McBlobbules [head tilt]

Update on the—Ruh-roh!

Babywhatshisname_2This is such a bummer, People. Apparently, the name-a-beluga whale contest over at Shedd aquarium will only accept Inuit/Indian names as contest entries. Last time I checked, neither "Humptyback Fishtybuns", nor "Mr. Splashy von Beluga Whalehouser", NOR "Smiley Q McWrinklesides" were of Inuit origin.

This is a total official rules McBummer, and I should have caught it. I’m sorry! Sure, we could all rally behind "Inungoark" or "Kappianartok", but that just doesn’t have the same "Fishty" ring to it.

Alert reader Lindsay S. suggests "Suppiwok"—it means " Blows air with one’s mouth"  The closest Inuit approximation of "Mr. Pbbbffth-Pbbbffth"


Let’s name this behbeh!

OVERLOADERS! This is our chance to make a POSITIVE IMPACT on, like, society and stuff! Let’s all get together and write-in a name for the new Shedd aquarium baby Beluga whale! Let’s get consensus first… What name should we suggest?


Mr. McPorkersons? Colonel Belugersons??! Eddie!?!? Mobbers-Dicklebottom?


Mr. Pbbbffth-Pbbbffth??


I know you can come up with a name… THEN WE CAN ALL WRITE IT IN AND CONQUER THE WOOOOOORLD! [great find, Betsy W.]

Eddie McBlobbles, at your sthervice

People, we don’t normally have feeshes on this site, so when we do, you KNOW it’s a doozy. And that’s where Eddie McBlobbules comes in. He’s totally the inside-out-seahorse-in-a-ball-nerd of the deep. You can tell, he’s all adjusting his glasses and writing your French Lit IV paper for you and stuff.


National Geographic has other deep-sea dwellers, but none who know as many theorems as Mr.M here. Thanks, Matthew C.!

Hey, anyone have time to animate those peepers? Come on!!!

Kristina W., the eyelids say it all… :(

Esscyuusse me, but I am not feesh please.


Yes I do understand how you may feel constrained by the classifications currently available to you, sir or madam.  However, this does not diminish my state of reptilianity.  I am what I am.  You see?  Not all that is wet is fishy!

We are TURTLE.  You will be assimilated.

Thanks to Lauri for the fine fotos!
