Cats -- so awesome that...
« on: November 14, 2017, 10:43:40 AM »
...a rheologist at the University of Paris has proven that cats are liquid. Sort of.

And won the first Ig Nobel Prize at Harvard recently for his study!

Only kind of kidding!

Cats are not liquid. Though they love to make you drink liquid-- hard liquids. The real question nobody can figure-out is, "Do We Teach Our Cats To Do Things- Or Do They Teach Us To Do Things"?

Cats are asshats that don't pay rent, though.

Why would I read it? I might have written it. Though I don't recall sending the profits to the Contras or not.

They also make liquid. Sometimes in your shoes.


Dogs have owners... cats have staff.

Worth noting that the "cats are liquid" theory was actually written by the cat, per the cat's staff.  ^-^ (Cf the first comments on the article.)

Ouch! -- that particular exerciser is about to get significantly more exercise than expected, going after that cat!

Enigmatic. Very appropriate for the subcategory.  O0

Looking more closely I realize (1) the monitor wasn't plugged in, in any way (which makes me suspect this was a staged event that went far too right);

and (2) the cat's non-reaction to dropping a TV on the peon genuflecting on the floor is priceless:DD

My brother and his wife had an (eventually) elder dog (not to be confused with an elder god, since her disposition was much more cheerful), who could not understand why we didn't realize the NINJA SQUIRREL WAS RIGHT THERE LOOKING IN THE DOOR AT US!!!1!
