Cat Found

2 04 2008

I would love to tell you about so many things today but my diseased and tired brain just cannot do it.

So I will give you this.

Someone is missing their cat somewhere. You don’t have to live in rural America to appreciate the absolute wonder of this poster.

Update: Howdy to every one coming over from Eschaton.

If someone claims it, they can have the ones that must be related to it from my yard.

Humph. “Not very friendly” indeed. They just don’t know how to handle a cat. Why i could make it roll over and play dead in no time…

Reminds me of the time a neighbor came over and told me she had found a dead possum in her driveway. (At least she recognized it as a possum). So we went back over, looked, saw nothing. She was completely bewildered. “But I SAW it!”

That’s when we had a little talk about the defensive strategies of Didelphis Virginiana

3 04 2008
Jon

Of course! But it’s still hilarious!

Indeed, but the horribly-named Attaturk (does he know what he shares the name of a notorious dictator, I wonder?) advanced this on Eschaton as “the state of the American educational system is depressing.” He took the thing seriously.

This is an old one and, as Jon Says, an obvious joke.

Of course Attaturk knows from whence his name cometh. Why don’t you go over to Rising-Hegemon and ask him about it? I suspect it will be a lot like cuddling that kitteh pictured here!

Southern Beale,
Yes Indeed.

The Dude

That’s a hipster prank: everyone who lives on or near Sunset knows what a possum looks like.

Possums, coyotes, skunks, deer, etc., we have them all living in the Hollywood Hills and you see them all the time. Hell, I just saw a coyote in the middle of the day at Wilton & Santa Monica.

The sad corollary? Anytime you see a ‘missing cat/dog’ flyer in those same areas… sorry, they’re not “missing” – they coyotes got ’em.

Apparently he’s right about the educational system, since people like you can’t recognize irony when it jumps up and punches you in the face.

Reminds me of the problem we had with the ‘black and white cat’ that my father-in-law thought was lost. Very funny.

A few years ago these same telephone poles had flyers for ‘Missing Lizard’ on them, featuring a komodo dragon I believe. Same neighborhood. Same pranksters.

Irony, huh? I’ll tell you what’s funnier than any obvious April’s Fool joke: ignoramuses who like to excuse idiocy by calling it “irony” because they think it makes therm seems smart and culturally aware. Well, Sarah dear, let me explain how “irony” works”: Irony is basically exaggeration withing an appropriate context. So, when Colbert channels and exaggerates Falafel Bill within the context of an opinion TV show, that’s irony. Giving yourself the moniker of a somewhat obscure military dictator without any context is just, well, stupid — but, I must admit, not as stupid as people who use words they don’t understand.

Oh, sure, and next thing we know you’ll become an A-lister yourself and won’t speak to your friends any more. Heh. Good for you — I hope some of them stick around and look at your other stuff.

Saw the same notice with the same wording including the smiley but with pictures of a different animal.. almost certainly an April Fools joke.

Irony is basically exaggeration withing an appropriate context.

That isn’t the definition of irony. Colbert tends to engage in parody and satire, he often tends to use sarcasm, but not so often irony.

Irony, is about expectations being different that reality…or when the full significance of a character’s words or actions are unknown to them but known to an audience. Irony is about contradiction, not about exaggeration.

Looks like Opie my pet possum. Opie is away training for the tree climbing competition in the Beijing Olympics, that is if he can stand the toxic Chinese soup he’ll have to breath. Last letter from him was postmarked L.A. Opie wrote (he’s a really smart possum) that he was on the 10 imitating road kill so he could condition his lungs to the upcoming event. L.A. smog is about as close to Beijing as you can get without actually being there.

Oh, Hell! That’s my pet wombat, Wally, that escaped after out-manoeuvring my flame thrower. Ended up eating the neighbour’s pooch instead.

What I can’t understand is how Wally drifted over to the Western Seaboard of the USA from Epsom (in England, for those upright US citizens that haven’t yet discovered the existence of a world outside of the USA – and that’s most!) and am even more surprised that someone else had the audacity to claim Wally as his/hers. Don’t Californians have any sense of morality?

At least Wally would have made a better President than @+%$£-face(What’sthe half-wit’s name?). Maybe Wally can fool you guys into electing him next President of the USA! For that you can thank me later.
