Let's just agree we read it for the articles

Dewds, we made it as a "Sick Site" on Maxim this month. How H-O-double-T is that? woo! According to Maxim, you should "sneak on to CuteOverload then sit back and aww like a schoolgirl." OK!

Maxim

Who knew you read Maxim, Snakeobsen? (Only in the airport, I know. I know)

Boobies!

Oh, wait, this isn't Fark.

And anyone who spends only 15 minutes at CO isn't trying hard enough...

Who woulda thunk that being sick could be a good thing?

Congrats!

Of course this happens AFTER I don't renew my subscription ! Oh well :D Congratulations on the press, keep up the cute work!

AuntieMame: Hee. I kinda wish CO would do a filter like that... It's one thing if someone posts something of some substance and than adds, "Hey, first post!" (like sandy p. did), but when they only post "first post" and NOTHING ELSE, it's really damn annoying. Though it's funny when they post that and they're NOT first... Heehee...

love the picture. apparently maxim and jack daniels go hand in hand.

Maxim readers would never ever say "anerable" or "snorgle" or "soft kronche" or any of the proper CO words.

I guess it's a good enough start that we just get them looking at the pictures.

Maxim is not cute. Hah!

Lina
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 03:48 AM

haha.. i'm an infrequent maxim reader, and i use some of the proper CO words..

maybe it's all in the moderation?

LT: haha.. maxim readers know all about looking at pictures.

Congratulations. Cute Overload to the Max, impressive.

...i'm just sayin'

(oh, and kudos to us)

Congrats! I know for a fact that Maxim is one of the favorite and most-requested magazines by our (male) troops over in Iraq, Kuwait, & Afghanistan (at least from the request lists at AnySoldier.com). Maybe exposure to CO will remind them that there are still puppies and kittens and softer things in the world to come home to... :-)

An odd side note: I got my first blog proposal--that is someone who visited my blog proposed marriage. This individual said, "I clicked found you through Cute Overload." So apparently, CO is like the new internet supermarket--a great place to pick up chicks. So, uh, watch out for the Maxim guys.

Redzilla
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 06:11 AM

CO is the new sexy.

NebraskaErin

OH WOW Meg!!!!!

You're Faaaamous!!!!

Can I have your autograph??!!!

Tom
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 06:36 AM

I thought Cute Overload was supposed to be cute as in baby chicks; not cute as in hot and sexy chicks!

Becky

"I thought Cute Overload was supposed to be cute as in baby chicks; not cute as in hot and sexy chicks!"

Are you kidding? Have you see the photos of Fearless Leader Meg?

Laurie C
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 07:05 AM

Red: You've *got* to be kidding me. Also, am I the only one vaguely creeped out by Maxim's suggestion? It would be like, I dunno, pervs hangin' out in the Olsen twins fan chat, pretending to be 10-year-old girls. Look out for suspicious characters, yo!

brownamazon

Theo
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 07:14 AM

This is a little disgusting. We've finally reached the point that no site on the web is safe from female degradation.

I came to this site to see pictures of animals, and instead I see Meg participating in female exploitation by posting images of women to treat like meat.

We don't need to know who likes this site, Meg. We already read it. If a bunch of perverts want to spead the word about cuteoverload, good for them. You don't have to endorse them in return, especially to an audience that could largely be young people. I thought you were better than that.

Not impressed.

Tasha
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 07:17 AM

Tasha:

1) We're PG-13 here.

2) Note also that the Maxim isn't open, in this picture.

3) If Meg is "participating in female exploitation" by announcing CO's plug in Maxim, then so too must Maxim be participating in the celebration of cute cuddly fuzzleby woopsums. And that's all to the good, wouldn't you say?

4) And you know, by way of example: I don't read Playboy (or Maxim, for that matter). But if CO got a capsule writeup in Playboy, that would definitely be a feather in CO's readership cap, and I'd have not the slightest problem with Meg posting another "WOOHOO!" like this one.

5) A Cute Overload writeup in Playboy still wouldn't induce me to subscribe.

Theo

Pass the kitteh to Tasha, she needs a huff.

NebraskaErin
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 07:32 AM

Tasha: Lighten the heck up. You need to look a little more at (the vast majority of) the photos at this site and absorb a little sweetness and light. BTW, I am a woman. In fact, I think the idea of grown men oohing and ahhing over the cuteness on this site as rather endearing. And hot.

Glitch
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 07:34 AM

so i guess those hot and heavy leering maxim couch potato wannabe k-feds (like, they wanna be k-fed, which makes them wanna-be wanna-bes) are actually just sweet little puppy loving people at heart!
I feel this must be either some pre-april fool april fools (what can top last year, though,really, when that nerdsite and co had such a full on party) or just proof that god is crazy and all's right with the world.
Heaven help us!
(in short, I agree with Glitch and just find this too hilarious!)

or no...maybe what it really reveals is that co readers are just LIKE Maxim Readers? Do we not objectify nude or semi-nude critters? gaggle over their pretty soft parts and coy eyes? ogle their proshness! I think the truth may be we are smutty and leering as those dudes after all.

Poor kitties and puppies, they need to get themselves some self-respect and stop baring it all for the camera!
You can't find self-esteem by opening yourself to a COXCU, mister kitten!
nor is it at the bottom of a cat food can.

whew, I'm so pooped from all this typing I gotta go 'flop.'
hope someone's here to to take a snap in case I look cute!

fifi
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 07:58 AM

Tasha has the right to her own opinion without you guys telling her to lighten the hell up.

Also, I agree completely. Not cute. Not cute at all. We´re all supposed to "leave the politics out of this", but posting half naked women makes this impossible.

anarcarrot
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:01 AM

I hate it when CO gets so heavy. Good job, Meg, I would post such a major kudos if I had worked so hard to run and maintain a site many people worldwide enjoy.

ANYWAY, I saw a CO mention in Maxim *MONTHS* ago. It was some kind of four quadrant graph of internet sites with how sexy, embarassing, fun, etc. sites were. Must find that to reference better...

katerpie
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:10 AM

"Tasha has the right to her own opinion without you guys telling her to lighten the hell up."

So what you're saying is, Tasha has the right to her opinion, but I don't? Lighten the hell up.

Theo
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:10 AM

Oh no, I've been sucked in to the commentroversy!

anacarrot, yes, Tasha has a right to her own opinion, but everyone else has a right to tell her to lighten up or express their opinion about her opinion. That whole freedom of speech thing is a two way street you know. Get your undies out of a twist, it can't be comfy.

laureling
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:13 AM

Nebraska Erin - Aye, aye.
Passes Tasha a floofeh kitteh, "It's name is Braveheart."
Passes marmie kitteh to Theo, "Here, your Honor, but it costs $100./hr. plus legal fees."
Alright, looks like we're going to need a lot more kittehs here!

maxim has the best articles ever!!! i htink it says on the maxim site that 30% of the readers are women lol.

sarah
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:24 AM

i like hot half naked chicks just about as much as i like sweet lil baby ones. maxim and cuteoverload.com....a match made in heaven.

MarianRose
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:38 AM

I think it's cool that Maxim is pushing CO. Nothing endearing than a cute guy thinking a cute animal or human baby is cute. Shall I even mention "Cats and Racks"? (ducks from nuffers)

marsheeeee
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:39 AM

And I do consider myself a feminist, for whatever that's worth.

marsheeeee
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:40 AM

Nothing "more" endearing than... sorry.

marsheeeee
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 08:42 AM

OMG IT SAYS "BUSH" ON THE COVER - RUN! COVER YOUR EYES! HIDE THE PANTLESS KITTEHS!

And in other news - Way to go, Meg!!!

arbed
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 09:09 AM

Way to go Meg!

By the way, I hate the commentrovery that follows this site around. Tasha - for the record, I do agree that Maxim is exploitive, and finding out a guy likes it automatically puts him on my "disgusting creeps to avoid" list. BUT - and this is the important part - I won't let my opinion of the magazine stop me from giving Meg a hearty thumbs up since she's obviously pleased about this.

C.M. -- two things:

1) Word.
2) Kickass GMail address, but baked beans are off.

Theo
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 09:31 AM

Congrats! Whoohoo :)

and for the record, i am a woman and i like to read Maxim. It amuses me. I thought about getting a subscription to it myself but i like reading it for free at my friend's house..hehe.

Now....back to the cute! :)

So is CO listed in the "50 Bad Things To Do Till Sunrise" article?

Cindy B.
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 09:49 AM

it is odd that, on a site we all must go to for a quick smile amid the dregs of work, there is so much Outrage! (such as the great Turtlegate issue..)
'tis a mystery.
or maybe there's some kind of extra reaction--like i just wanted to see a f--ing fuzzy Rufus paw, and now i'm all upset about maxim babes and tortured turtles instead and i'm mad i'm upset...because I just really wanted to cheered up by the cuteness...
just my little contribution of pscyhobabble.
snorgle to the world!

fifi
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 09:50 AM

let's not furget it's MEG'S blog, and we are all the happy recipients of free daily smiles! snorgles to everyone! *passes the kitten*

chet's momma
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 09:50 AM

I find this terribly funny. Congradulations, Meg.

Siirenias
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 10:04 AM

I agree that Maxim isn't something that CO fans would want to read, and maybe Maxim readers WILL come trolling for dates. But CO viewers will see though any faked interest in the Truly Cute. The Truly Cute cannot be corrupted. The Truly Cute will overcome their cynical intentions. The Truly Cute shall prevail!! Now, where is that cat belly for me to snorgle?!?

kbo
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 10:11 AM

As long as it's not "Penthouse" don't got a problem widdit.

It's funny.

carolina
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 10:12 AM

I think part of the frustration and dissapointment with some of the "viewers" here is that they consider CO to be the only site they can go to to escape the ugliness of every day existence, which does include being assaulted with hyper-sexual imagery, etc.

Now, I really love CO, but my favorite site is Oolong's web page. If you want sweetness and light, innocence and gentle humor, that's the place to go.

But CO is not only cute but also fun & goofy and this is just funny - no it's not cute, but it's funny.

So anyway, jest me 2 cents.

carolina
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 10:17 AM

And, oh yeah, Chet's Momma: Don't bogart that kitteh, my friend, pass it over to me!

carolina
 |  Nov 07, 2006 at 10:19 AM

The kittehs are working!!! Keep passing them around.
I'm in line behind the "TrulyCute" (-kbo), doin' the limbo.
Gettin' "widdit"(-carolina)
