Hee! I'm just guessing that Lore Sjöberg is not a big fan of blogs?

I love the description of Fark.com!
/your dog wants a kitty to love.

ya know, the scary thing is that among the tens of thousands of pictures in the CO vault there *is* "A kitten licks a puppy while the puppy licks a bunny"

Lore has his own blogfest but doesn't like anyone else's? What a gwumpy-pants Lore Sjoberg is!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 05:08 PM

Wow. I really look forward to the time when I can create a filter for everything, and I can ignore everything this dude says. He's a killjoy, and I hate keeping getting suckered into reading his grouchy articles without checking the byline first.

And I'd LOVE a pic of a bunny licking a kitty licking a puppy. Or whatever.

Send him a CO t-shirt - but, Meg, ONLY if you can spare one. See what he does with it.

Still, right now, I just feel that if I had a cat, it would hate him.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 05:41 PM

I adore Lore. Brunching Shuttlecocks was hilarious. This article, while verging on blog territory, was also good. People (blogs) should be able to handle some fun being poked at them. As should the readers of said blogs.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 05:42 PM

Lore Sjöberg may not be a fan of blogs & therefore CO.....

But as they say in the classics "there's no such thing as bad press" :oP

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 05:55 PM

the next entry was hilarious too! (and got CO another mention!)

If you look to the right, see the huge gazungas in a white t-shirt that says bad grammar makes me [sic]? well, they have a t-shirt that says
"Nobody cares about your blog" hahaha.
I don't think of CO as a blog, I always think of blogs as Myspace crap or crap that no one actually should care about. This is Cute Therapy!!!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:03 PM

...besides, it's the lunatics that run the asylum around here!


 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:05 PM

[in my most nasal & pompous voice]

Lore HAS a blog. Lore is an intarweb FIXTURE. In a very real sense, Lore IS the blogosphere. Back in the day, Lore and friends used to do Brunching Shuttlecocks. It's over and done now, but the archive's all here...

The Björk Song (umlaut + diaeresis = luvvv)...

Here's his older webcomic (just keep clicking "next")...

Here's his CURRENT comic (open, w00t, shut, clickity next)...

...and finally [ahem] his BLOG:

There now. [folds spectacles, returns them to clamshell]

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:07 PM


there is also the t-shirt "I'm SO totally blogging this" ;)

CO is cute therapy in blog format. the article did mistakenly called slashdot and fark blogs, which they definitely are not. they are news aggregators (with a definite tech slant for slashdot).
I did laugh at the example for slashdot ultimate post.

Eeesh - sounds like Lore needs a major dose of cute therapy! Oh wait - he hates blogs. That's why he's complaining about them on his own. I say, we all send in pics better than any that Meg's already posted and then see what Lore has to say! :) tehehe

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:24 PM

Just to be clear here: Lore... is funnier than me. He's *allowed* to lampoon blogs.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:34 PM


we gets you.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:43 PM

Yeah *YOU* gets me. Just wanted to be sure *THEY* gets me.
I did have loyalties before CO, y'know. ;)

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 06:44 PM

oh, oh, oh,

I gets you now. Omerta and all that.

'tis allright. our lips are too busy kissing kitten heads to blab.

mariser, I totally agree with you... Slahdot is NOT a blog. Fark is a bit more so, since Drew seems to put his 2¢ in a bit more often... but I don't think CO is a blog at ALL! When does Meg blather on and on (and on) about her personal opinions? To me that's the definition of a blog. She lets US do all the blathering! [blather blather blather]

My favorite definition(s):

Cute Overload: A kitten licks a puppy while the puppy licks a bunny.
Fleshbot: Same as Cute Overload, only with coeds.

For personal reasons, the dig on Digg made me chuckle quite a bit.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:11 PM

Here's a puppy kissing a bunny! (getting close...)


 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:15 PM


yeah, the pairing of CO and Fleshbot is inspired.

CO is formatted like a blog and being a typepad shop and all. and Meg does not opinionate, but it is her unique vision of the cute that has all of us here happily blathering away.

the dig on Digg: HA!

omfg Renee, that is a fantastic picture!
I love the expression on the bunneh. looks like her ears proinged in surprise.

and curly-tailed puppeh...

Hi-LARious article. A wonderful summation of CO. Meg, can we get that picture somehow?

And Teho: impressive.

And Mariser, re: your first comment: are you banking on Lore's assumption about the poor search feature of blogs? ;)

A thinker
 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 07:25 PM

Meg doesn't opinionate?
Slashdot is a "news aggregator"??
Teho is impressive???
(I missed Amanda's comment, referencing the Brunch before I did... oops)

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:07 PM

{nasal voice}

funner than *I*. (am)

and, see, Sarcasta, that's what I was tryin-a say. only you blogged it better.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:10 PM

Professor T:

We blather, but do not blab.

Um...I put an apple on your desk, sir.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:11 PM

Well, I thought it was hysterical. The irony of a blogger ripping on bloggers was perfect.

And he's right. A lot of bloggers are blowhards with an overinflated sense of their own importance.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:13 PM

Y'know, I could probably get a pick of my dog snuggling my cat while licking my guinea pigs...

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:36 PM

***"A lot of bloggers are blowhards with an overinflated sense of their own importance."***
AuntieMame, in "the industry" they call that "navel gazing."

[insert baby Bart banging on a pot with a wooden spoon and chanting "I am so great! I am so great!"]

Lizzy... don't lick your guinea pigs.
[squirts you with a spray bottle.]

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:47 PM

Sarcasta -- in the industry, they've got other names for that, too.

(I thought it was TOADS I wasn't supposed to lick...?)

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 08:53 PM

I thought the article/blog/whatever was fuuunnny. I have a friend who has started two blogs and complains that no one reads them. So for me the personal blog/urine comparison was especially applicable.

I thought he was just being sarcastic and navel-gaze-ily. But then I love snarky humor.

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:10 PM

"He" being this Lore person (as referenced in my last sentence). Loved Brunching Shuttlecocks! And the Bart Simpson "I am so great" reference - faboo! I use that around the office when I'm the one who fixes the copier or something else equally mundane.

Did I mention I was easily amused as well?

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:13 PM

Yeah Theo... they've got other names for it... *cough cough Digg cough*

Licking toads is yukky, and you shouldn't dangle your participles, either. But I'd sure like to see the acrobatics of taking a photo of a dog/cat snorgle while simultaneously licking a guinea pig... (I'm not the grammar police, Lizzy. I just couldn't resist that mental image.)

AmyH... You are so great! *BANG!*

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 09:30 PM

While the bunny snorgles a baby duckling.

THAT'S the ultimate CO picture!

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 10:12 PM

Okay, they're not licking each other in this shot, but you'll find a special bonus animal:

 |  Sep 06, 2006 at 11:31 PM

Excuse me, what in hell does that have to do with cute? And why do you post it here?

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 01:40 AM

am I missing something, but a kitty licking a puppy licking a bunny *IS* the ultimate CO picture. It would make me and the rest of you, too, squeek and go cuuuuute and all that. Lore is bang on. Now, please can someone FIND a picture like that? I need some CO to get me through the day after it started off bad from Lore haters and spammers .c

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 03:05 AM

Just got a question that has nothing to do with this thread, but there is no forum here so..

I've sent in my pictures to cuteoverload@frostdesign.net about a month ago and I was just wondering how or if I'd be informed as to whether they fit the Cute Overload criteria or not. I had no e-mail-reply (positive or negative) and my pictures haven't been shown here (or have they? I'm here every day.. well, almost. Maybe I missed it.). So, do I just wait (and how long does it usually take for a picture you've sent in to appear) or am I notified when they decide to never use my pictures? Thank you.

Sorry again, for usurping this place with my question.


 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 05:13 AM

JudeW -- 'taint nuthin persnal. CuteOverload is still a 1-woman shop, with literally THOUSANDS of photo submissions. So pretty much the only feedback possible is finding your photo posted one day. And it might take a while, too, in the case of pix with special relevance (like shots of the tabbie with the Croc Hunter toy).

There are times I've written up whole formatted & sourced articles (ahem... PENGUIN PARADES) that haven't made it to publication.


 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 05:33 AM

Get over the blogger-dissing-blogger thing (especially since he's right :) ) and get me a picture of puppy-bunny-kitten-kissing! My newly found bad-ass attitude needs some Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaw!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 06:02 AM

I think the comment about the "lunatics running the asylum" said it all....and what loveable huggable lunatics you all are!!!! *big sloppy kisses*

*wanders off muttering happily*

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 06:32 AM

bleeeeh, at least with toads you get high (I heard), with guinea pigs you only get fuzzy tongues, and probably ruptured eardrums. Wheeeeeeeeeeet!

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 06:34 AM

I'm gonna start a blog. I have to think of a good name for it though.
"Conversations With Myself"
or perhaps
"God, I Hope No One Reads This!"
(One of my favorite Simpsons eps is when Homer ran away to escape his public tv pledge to be a missionary & was licking toads!!!)

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 06:40 AM

Wow. Guy needs a drink or some lovin' or something.

Way too angry.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 07:02 AM

G'morning, peeps.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 07:04 AM

P.S. teho, love the draguerreotypes.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 07:04 AM

Thank you so much Theo!! I was wondering. I thought I did something wrong. I can wait of course!

Sorry to hear about your publications! But one day will come.. ;o)

Thanks again! This site is awesome!

Cheers, JudeW.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 07:45 AM

Just wondering...
What is varenoea (a few comments back) talking about???????

you guys r silly
 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 07:54 AM

Actually, I think a cuter title would be "Snorgle trifecta - a kitten snorgles a puppy while the puppy snorgles a bunny"

Thats cuter.

 |  Sep 07, 2006 at 07:55 AM

ygrs, there is a word for the "that's not cute, I demand that you post only pictures of which I approve" types, but I've forgotten what the word is.

Anyway, if a blog that mentions Cute Overload BY NAME isn't relevant, then I don't what is.
