To Squee Or Not To Squee

I’m gonna put my money on SQUEE right now. To review:

Verb: To squeal with glee; from a combination of the two words; the sound of an excited fangirl.
Noun: A feeling of excitement and happiness, such that one feels like Squeeing. “You wouldn’t believe how full of Squee I am right now.”

Are you ready for this?

Postcards from the Edge


Sarah van E. says, “I made this photograph in a monkey zoo in the Netherlands!…It also has a baby on it’s back but sadly enough it’s not really seeable.” Many of us have an invisible monkey on our back, Sarah, but we don’t look nearly as cute carrying them around.

Ultimate Encore Presentayshe!

You know, there’s…cute. Then there’s…cute. Then…there’s thees. OMGPLAYITAGAIN.

Whoops! That’s not Jimmy Durante, that’s baby Colobus monkey, Kivuli. My bad.

Put Me In Coach, I’m Ready To Play

Cute Overload headquarters are in the Bay Area so we’ve been cheering on the A’s and San Francisco Giants, natch.

Rooting for the Giants can only mean one thing: time to break out the Giants Rally Monkeh Mascot!

This Little Langur Gonzo has got the perfect orange and black color scheme going on. But he needs a name, People! So head over to the SF Zoo’s Facebookster page, and name away! I think it has to be Buster.Photos by San Francisco Zoo.
