VERY un freaking acceptable!!!!! F***U penguin, OMG!! Just the name, as I have not visited the site, seems deplorable. Cuteoverload is just that, exactly. I voted!!!!!

Well I, for one, voted for CO, my fav. And just why are these people swearing at penguins anyway?????

Peeps- this vulgar penguin site must be put in its place.
We have far more clout that they, so please, I implore you, vote for decency and teh qte. It is the correct way to go. Penguins should not be sworn at or sworn about. 'Penguin power to ma peeps', their tailios, their feetsies. Yes, swearing just to prove that one {can} swear at or about a penguin- childish, sophomoric and utterly unnecessary. Go peeps! Arise-all we have to lose is our collective dignity!
Right now I am listening to PDQ Bach- Theresa, I am invoking you to do the same! It is the "Music for An Awful Lot of Winds & Percussion" CD. Have a fluffy day, peeps! Vote! Collective dignity be darned I do love PDQ! But vote anyway or I'll keep typing!

Yes. Who are these people?
Save the penguins! Vote for CO!!!11!

I agree - we must outvote penguin people! FU Penguin has cute pictures and not-cute text. Gets old quickly.

Vote CO all the way!!!!

My CO friends: Of course we should all vote for CO immediately and every day. But I will say about F U Penguin that it is a lovely place for those of us who feel annoyed by nuffers. It is an environment where nuffers do not tread. If you are a peep who loves play with language (all language, not just that approved by Sunday-school teachers) and you love the qte, you might check it out. The reindeer post there delighted me almost as much as the "No Exit Strategy Whatsoever" post of this week. Of course, CO is my first and best love and therefore gets my vote. Vote like a baby stoat!

So far I have voted on my Home computer we have until the 13th of January people vote every day on each of your computers... We must prevail.. That goofy penguin site must not win!!!!!!

Annie
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 07:23 AM

I checked out Eff-you Penguin for the first time just now. Wow. The vulgar language and general negativity throughout that blog is just off-putting to me. It's also sad; sad that so many people prefer that kind of message. But then again, society seems to be moving in a downward spiral anyway, so I'm not surprised. I hope CO continues to take the high road, though. It's not all about winning.

 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 07:27 AM

I looked at the FUP site and I don't see the point of cursing at animals... Cute is cute, how can you make it evil like that?! Plus, most of those pictures have been on here already... with SWEET & FUNNY CAPTIONS!

Ashley
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 07:51 AM

I didn't know about Eff You, Penguin. Thanks! :3

Kratz
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 07:54 AM

I'm sorry, I love Cute Overload, but F*** You Penguin makes me LOL. It's OK to enjoy both.

cari
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:05 AM

If you go over to the FU site, they are saying all kinds of bad thing about us CO'ers, VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, LIKE A LITTLE STOAT, and crush those foul mouthed penquin haters into the mud!!!!

[I wouldn't call this approach "taking the high road", would you? - Ed.]

DumBunny
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:14 AM

Woah, hold up. CO gettin' wupped, by FUP?

This calls for a song...

"Take me down to the Overload City!
Where yer @ss is bleen and the girls show their ti-----!"

.

.

No, srsly. Naow zat vee have your attenshon:

(whistlin', toe-tappin')
"Tailios for sale or rent, ...baroos to let fifty cents.
No photoshop, no poop, no Neopets, I aint got no regrets!
Ah but, two hours in the CO Chat Room,
And everybody knows your nom-nom de plume.
Teho’s the man of bleens by no bleens, on Cute Overload!!!"

pyrit
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:23 AM

Awww, I love F*** You Penguin! Comparing it to CO is like comparing...well, comparing Sarah Silverman to Ellen. One's vulgar and hilarious; the other's clever and hilarious.

Of course, CO is my first love, so I'll always stay loyal. Second place now!

Wiglet
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:33 AM

Yeah, I've got to say that it's pretty obvious that CO is a way more superior site. Especially since they were the ones that called out FUP first! They are, like, WAY more mature and I'm sooooo going to vote for them!!!!11

Grow up, people.

Jamie
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:40 AM

I prefer Sarah Silverman to Ellen any day, but I also prefer C.O. to ANYTHING!

berthaservant
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:40 AM

Oh noes ! We must catch up, Overloaders !! Step on the stoat !! (well, only figuratively.)

And no one talks to penguins like that in front of me, am not going near that site. Hmff !

Poohbear
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:45 AM

Checked out FYP : uncute, verbose, arrogant and unfunny.

Vote, vote, vote like the proverbial stoat, all ye peeps !

Poohbear
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 08:54 AM

I am as always a co lover but really the FUP site is pretty funny.
IT is just different as is ICHZB.. which I also enjoy.

BUT CO MUST PREVAIL... ; )

Annie
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 09:31 AM

Come on CO peeps FUP is NOTHING compared to CO. VOTE VOTE VOTE LIKE A BABY STOAT!!!!!!! CO all the way!

tanny
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 10:06 AM

Eek, Right now:
1. F*** You Penguin (my sentiments exactly): 8235 votes (52%)
2. C.O.: 3021 votes (19.1%)

We're not even close! But at least we got past that darned cheezburger site.

Shadyman
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 10:42 AM

Woot! Second place! FUP is like 5,000 votes ahead of us.

I think I may put this on my Facebook status now :)

Annie J
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 10:49 AM

I might like to add that the FUP folks are nuts. We're just competing, fair and square. They are saying things to the effect of, "We're winning and they're jealous of our success. They need a dose of reality!"

I don't have anything against FUP and I don't think many people 'round here do, either. However, CO is and will remain my first love. I've enjoyed stuff at the other sites, I'll admit it! But the only one I check regularly is CO. I love the stuff we get here, I love the people here, and I love all the witty things around here (people make songs/poems, make punny comments...makes my day!)

LET'S SHOW THE WORLD WHY CO IS THE BEST, FAIR AND SQUARE!!!! :D :D :D

Annie J
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 10:55 AM

FUP will prevail. resistance is futile.

Charles
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 11:19 AM

FUP is pretty much the best thing ever, but don't worry you guys are pretty damn cute too. For those of you who think the site is merely vulgar and insulting, you're clearly missing the point. How funny that two cute animal sites could be battling it out in such a way. Have you seen Dennis?!

Anne
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 12:53 PM

Charles, move. Away.

Katrina
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 12:54 PM

Agreed Charles. FUP is mopping the floor with cute overload.

Ruri
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 12:57 PM

Pyrit, that was fabulous - loved both your "ditties"!

"...man of bleens by no bleens..."
hee hee!!

holligans
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 01:21 PM

these sites are all apples and oranges but, naturally, CO gets my vote!!!!!!

DKN
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 01:21 PM

I have voted. For F*** You, Penguin. Because it's better! Much, much better. But thanks for the reverse promotion here.

F*** you, Cute Overload, for the "Qte™" bs if for no other reason.

[That's fine. You are very, very obviously not a member of our target audience. In the long term, though, you may find that you're not be the most welcome member of FUP's audience, either. Learn civility. It helps. - Ed.]

Alex Colby
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 01:32 PM

As a few others have said, those who think FUP is simply vulgar and hateful are missing the boat entirely.

I don't know the author, but I honestly think the site is sort of based on Fonzie. (Remember Happy Days?) Imagine Fonzie, putting on his "so much badder than you" show in front of the hot girls, being so cool and untouchable, and then a tiny baby kitten goes by and mews at him.

This is The FONZ, y'all - he can't ADMIT that the kitten's adorable. He can't squeal and say "Oh, I want to hold it!" He has to keep up his black-leather macho-man appearance. He has to pretend to be unmoved, impervious - perhaps even pretend to *hate* cats, and this cat in particular. "Fnck you, kitten! You aren't all that!"

But when no one's looking, you'd better believe that kitten's going to be smuggled upstairs for warm milk and snuggles, tucked gently and safely inside Fonzie's leather jacket.

Then, when Richie or Chachi bursts in unexpectedly and catches the Fonz playing "hand-spider's-gonna-get-you-oh-yes-it-is" with the kitten... "This d@mn kitten! I keep trying to strangle it but it's got nine lives!"

Do you get it now? (You don't have to *LIKE* it, but do try to *understand* it, at least.)

e
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 02:11 PM

I get it. I don't like it.
Hey peeps, lets all hold hands (first gently put down the kittys) and say:
"We love CO and are proud of it!"
OK, you may resume snorgling now.

snorglepup
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 02:44 PM

but i love you both!!! (i hate it when mommy and daddy fight!)

cheryl
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 02:45 PM

agreed with aboves...i get f*** you penguin, and it isn't funny. as in, it is not clever and and it is boring. let's show 'em that cute overload will prevail!
(raises paw in defiance)

 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 03:04 PM

I've not peered into the world of F-penguin, but if the commenters from there are any indication of the caliber... I think I'll pass. Rude is the nicest word I can come up with. It's fine if people think it's funny, and want to surf over there. Be my guest. But to come on the board here and tell us to F-off?! Not gettin' my vote even if it's funny. I don't find it funny, even if you're "kidding." Humor is not insulting if it's clever enough.

 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 03:06 PM

Argh! I voted yesterday, and it won't let me do it again - I thought this was a daily thing we could do! I don't think I was so late last night that it was already tomorrow/today somewhere else in the US...

Boomer's Babysitter
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 03:09 PM

I get it, "e", but like "snorglepup", I still don't like it. Just not my kind of humor. And I'm no prude. I have my "sick twisted freak!" (to steal a Glenn Beck expression) moments :-)

Mo K.
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 03:25 PM

e- think what you want- but, I'm going to ask you, has self-deception always been one of your strong points?

I like Fonzi- but I just don't see the analogy. Fonzi was never mean or mean spirited, and he never used fowl language, that was one of his charms. He stopped before innocent people got got hurt.

It is a big, wide wonderful world out there and I have found my niche, thnkuvrymch.

Katrina
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 04:15 PM

i like Cute Overload to feel warm and fuzzy, but angry bitter and funny is much more clever and intelligent and adorableness. Sorry, its the 21st century, people! Plus, as a college educator I am sick of my student writing LOLs and using informal language like CO uses in their assignments. FORMAL LANGUAGE IS A VIRTUE OF THE EMPLOYABLE, BITCHES!

[Puh-lease. Cute Overload isn't Monster.com, first of all. And y'know, for the most part, I agree. Proper English is something folks are supposed to learn in school, isn't it? Along with (ahem) creative writing? - Ed.]

[Also, formal language wasn't a requirement of *my* employment, and I say this as the guy who compiled & wrote the Glossary (which is long overdue for an update, sigh). It depends on what you want to do, and where you want to work. - Ed.]

Is there any reason we can't ask any of our sister sites to endorse us?

Annie J.
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 04:43 PM

Now I can't even get to the site,

DumBunny
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 04:45 PM

If you really want to win, you need to post some monkey sex pics right away.

Either that or NFL cheerleaders. Sure, cheerleaders are off topic, but -- do you want to win?

I went to see what this cursing-at-waterfowl blog was about after voting for CO. It was amusing, but is it just me, or is it like Stephen Colbert's 'Bears' spiel spun out indefinitely?

KatieKat
 |  Jan 11, 2009 at 06:06 PM

You, Pyrit, are Hi-larious!

Oh my LOL -- I hadn't seen Pyrit's G'n'R paraphrase until now. *SNORT*

TAKE!
ME!
HO-WO-WOHM!!!
