Thanks to Our Underwriters

Major funding for Cute Overload comes from the Corporation for Potluck Broadcasting, and from the following:

The Lorraine and Ygnatz Hoongerdoonger Foundation, for advancing research in the field of putting little ducks on top of very large dogs;


and from the Chicken Hypnosis Association, for coverage of the environment, civil rights, economics, science, the arts, and pretty much anything other than chicken hypnosis because to be quite honest it’s kind of a boring subject;


and from the Bad Idea Foundation, helping people discover the power of bad ideas;


And the generous submissions of Sarah G., Sigrid M., Miriam S., and the ongoing support of (say with me now) viewers like you.

Monks ‘n’ Racks

From the Can’t Make This Stuff Up Files:
This important news story just caught our attention by the alert cuteporters over at DListed. Apparently, a woman walked into the Amherst County Courthouse toting this petite monkular “daughter,” dressed in diapers and a pink dress, in her brassiere:

When an official asked why she had the monkey in her bra, the woman was quoted as saying, “Well, would you leave your child at home? She has to be close to me.” More on this story over at the Lynchburg, Virginia News & Advance.

Monkeh Lisa Smile

Behind the mystique, the intrigue, the enigma, lies the timeless question –  what do monkehs smile about?

THIS JUST IN: Gummy Gorilla Grin

This mostly toothless smile belongs to Tiny, the first gorilla born at the London Zoo in 20 years. At four months, he’s just learning to walk, with some coaching from his loving mom Mjukuu.

And Now, Monkey Jell-O Wrestling

OK, so it’s really monkeys wrestling with Jell-O, but we wanted a more attention-getting headline. Anyway, the Bronx Zoo gave their squirrel monkeys blueberries in Jell-O to stimulate their foraging instincts, along with your “awwwwww” instincts.

Prosh Primate “Potto”

A new bebe “Potto,” closely-related to the Loris, was borned in the Cincinnati Zoo. I think you’ll agree, it’s the proshest lil’ primate ever. Take a look at this suction cup action:

Don’t Ask, Don’t Snorgle

[whispering Sir Richard Attenborough voice]

Rarely seen in the wild*, a Mali monkeh snorgles a Dachshund puppeh… Let’s watch.

*Wild? Wait—I think I see a leash Julie G.!
