Cute Overload gets the biggest props of all time: Slashdotted!

SlashdotPicture April 1, People—and your world turns upside down. Slashdot goes Pink! Best joke ever. Or… is it!?



CO Discovered by /. Nerds

OMG! Like the emotionally stunted Slashdot Fanboys (pictured below) have totally discovered Cute Overload. W00t!


Since they’re all l33t hax0rs, who are smarter than all of us combined, we should relinquish the comments and let them debate:

1. Why Microsoft sux!

2. Why you are so lame for not encoding your music to Ogg Vorbis.  What a luser!  You probably listen to Britney anyway, so what’s the point.

3. Why Jerry Taylor is, like, a total dick.

4. How you should delete Windoze and install FC5.  It’s like totally easy to use.

5. Some endlessly stupid circular argument that got started because one of their egos is as delicate as a butterfly fart.

So everyone put away their My Little Pony dolls and pop an Anime disc in your DVD, because the comments sections are going to be worthless until the Slashdot Effect passes.

Then again, if you’re really nice and bat your eyelashes, you can probably convince one of these guys to fix your WiFi connection.  (You, like, totally should be running WPA2 security.  *snort* *snort*)

And for every Fanboy that buys a t-shirt, we’ll set you up on your first date.  LOL!

Announcing: Our First T-Shirt

It’s here, People! Thanks to your votes we created a T-shirt of the winning hamster. I can’t believe I just wrote that. The fine folks at Glarkware are now accepting orders.

Now listen, the shirts are a skosh more expensive than Cafe Press, but the quality is far better. Don’t fight me on this! I’m looking out for you People.

Order now and your shirt will ship in the end of April. Check it OUT

But wait, there’s more.

If you buy a C.O. shirt, you can get 10% off other sections of Glarkware (excludes TWoP and GFY shirts.) with the code: "cute."

Paging David Dyer! Your puppy is on CNN!

Cnn_5David, your puppy is shown at the beginning of a segment on Cuteness on RIGHT NOW! To see it, go to the homepage of CNN, and on the right-hand side is a link called; "Watch: Does cuteness count? Awwwwwwwww … yes" (I did not make that up.)


If you click the link, you’ll see a streaming movie of a segment that appears to have aired on CNN. Also pictured are Chris B.’s pug, Jenny H.’s St. Bernard, Cory and Melinda’s cat, YayHooray’s teacup cats, Sarah S.’s pugs, and K. Akagami’s hamster! All shown with Outkast’s "Hey Ya" playing in the background. Peeps, tell your animals to get their autograph pens out.

And Hello! Homepage of CNN!
