Bobbeh keeps sending me these things!



  1. This has been photoshopped. I can tell by the pixels.

    But seriously, this is one of teh most awesomest things I have ever seen!

  2. Not That Mike The Other Mike says:

    Wait, I think I hear a loudspeaker playing Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries” in the distance.

    [I love the smell of güshyfüd in the morning – Ed.]

  3. Speaking of which, I just actually had to check my calender because it seemed that reality casual Friday had arrived early.

  4. Paunchie says:


    Laser beam eyes! pwew! pwew! pwew!

  5. ahahhahahhaaaa….

    I’ll do it before anyone else, so you’ll all know I’m kidding…

  6. Oh my God… this is the best thing I’ve ever seen. Ever.

  7. Sweeda88 says:

    Oooo! The way they’re moving makes them look like clouds. “I see…. a hovercat! NO, THREE hovercats!!”

  8. kokobutterbuns says:

    It’s just like War of the Worlds…..

  9. My hovercat is full of eels.

  10. @Theresa: I once made the mistake of adding that song to a mix CD for the car, it did not end well…

  11. I would actually like to see a hover-soprano someday, and who knows, the soprano might even be grateful. 😉

  12. nyeeeerrrrr!


  14. Didn’t I see them in one of the Superman movies???

  15. A definite winner of the Best Freakin’ Picture Ever Posted On The Internet, Ever.
    I luvs me a Hovercat. May I have it?

  16. Good Grief; they disregarded all the warnings and fed Hover-Ball Cat after midnight anyhow…… it’s Tribble Time, and there are moar HBC’s on the way, a whole army of them……. 😯

  17. OMG! Am I the only one that thinks that is soooo creepy?!!! *hides*

  18. 260Oakley says:

    Beware the dreaded Fluffwaffe, ready to drop “bombs” on your lawn!

    [ 😯 😆 :mrgreen: – Ed.]

  19. Oh heck my cat can do that no sweat. Bettah even!

  20. I usually don’t squee but that makes my day.

    I think that we can use this in the next Phantasm movie.

  21. @260Oakley, you rock like a beast!

  22. ♫ Here is a cat
    here is a hov’ring spherical cat
    and it’s pointed at you

  23. Thank you CO.. I was having a horrid day.. and this was what I really needed lol.. 😀

  24. FLOOFF-waffe !!!! (that was the sound of me splorting macaroni and cheese out my nose when I read 260Oakley’s newest contribution!)

  25. @260Oakley: Lucky we’ve a squad of bomb-eating dogs.

  26. And Patito Gigante… omg is that a ROBYN HITCHCOCK reference??!?!? You meet the classiest people at CO!

  27. KittyMarthaPoo says:

    OH MY GOSH, three of them are even BETTER! ! ! ! 🙂 Woo hoo, a whole HERD of flying fat tan grumpy looking cats. AWESOMENESS.

  28. Moglev cat?

  29. Didn’t they ride on these in Back to the Future Part II?

  30. They’re coming to git us!

  31. On your marks… Get set… Go!!!

  32. Ack! A whole herd!!!
    Can you imagine the purring!?


  33. Gracie The Shrieking Beagle was like that the first 6 months or so – she just put a foot down occasionally to make sure she didn’t lose any speed.

  34. Are those the new vilains to go with the new Doctor Who?

  35. AWESOME!!!!!!!!!

  36. LOVE the frakking Battlestar Galactica reference!

  37. Oh, STOP EET ALREADY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *laughing *hysterically* Me sides! They hurts!!!

  38. The longer you look at it, the funnier it gets! XD

  39. Looks like either Neville (I think it was) had another wand mishap and turned Mrs. Norris (who patrols the corridors of Hogwarts Castle with Argus Filch) into half a Golden Snitch, or possibly it is a rare photograph of a Kneazel,

  40. Teeny Gozer says:

    OMIGOD, this reminds me of those lenticular-printed pictures we used to have back in the day! I had a ring that changed from a 3-d Green Hornet to a 3-d Kato depending on the angle you looked at it.

  41. that’s creepy…

  42. Paunchie’s right – someone DEFINITELY needs to add eye-lasers!!!! pew pew indeed!

  43. LOVE IT! and “Floofwaffe” made me spew coffee and laugh at the same time!!!

  44. Those deadly dealers of death,
    the ones with tuna bref
    are flying into town
    here they come, mee-rowwn .

    Theresa – The Wagner lady in red, has a magnificent obligato
    and a very well developed diaphram.

  45. serenity_may says:

    run for the hills, hide, they are coming!!!

  46. hmm, can’t decide which is better/funnier sound to have with this:

    1) idling Harley motorcycle – “bahrump, bahrump, bahrump”
    2) alien spacecraft – (sorry, no idea how to spell alien spacecraft noise)

  47. Floofwaffe. That, right there, is some funny stuff. For me, personally, I have the sound effects from the pod-racing scene in Phantom Menace in my head. That says something about how my mind works. If my life had a soundtrack, it would definitely have been generated at Skywalker Sound.

  48. Fluidstatic says:

    @Ray … alien spacecraft noise? (NWYEEEEEERNGGGGGGGGG)

  49. Fluidstatic says:

    Also, is it bad that I don’t get “Floofwaffe?” it’s fun to say, but… ehn? *headtilt*

  50. “Floofwaffe”… That’s the best! 🙂

  51. Can’t decide of this photo reminds me more of Star Wars or Tron.

    Yes, I’m old.


    Next thing you know they’ll develop opposable thumbs and then it will be ALL OVER I TELL YOU.

  53. Fluffwaffe? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!! Thanks for the best laugh I’ve had in a long, long, long time. *tears* HAHAHAHAHAH!

    Oh, and Fluidstatic:

  54. @Patito Gigante – This is my mental picture of those dogs.

  55. Seriously, nobody else is imagining these trailing after the Tall Man?

  56. Jason! I love your avatar! Hee hee!
    How that guy stayed on TV, I’ll never know… Nice hair.

  57. Heehee!! Hovering on Purr Power!!

  58. Fleurdamour says:

    Headline: Schrodinger’s Cat Overcomes Einstein’s Gravity Theory OMG!

  59. Shadowtiger says:

    @Fluidtastic: Floofwaffe is a pun on “Luftwaffe,” the air branch of the German military during World War II.

  60. Fluidstatic, the German air command used to be called the Luftwaffe. Hence, Floofwaffe!

  61. Fleurdamour says:

    Hey, you found my cat! Thanks.

    I was trying to remember what those racer things were called !!!!
    (still hearing Ride of the Valkyries in my head)

  63. BeckyMonster says:

    My God, it’s full of tabby’s…

  64. puppies&kitties says:

    So funny. Goodness gracious great balls of feline.

  65. 260Oakley wins at the interwebs!!!

    When they open thier mouths for noms, I’ll bet they look like Zardoz…”The noms is good…”

  66. Oh ye gods and little fishes. I was having a bad day. Seriously. This literally made me snort.

  67. OK, the first one was amusing, but THIS is hilarious.

  68. victoreia says:

    @BeckyMonster: Shhh! We’re not supposed to know what’s in the Monolith!

  69. Von Zeppelin says:

    A vital question of safety: are these hydrogen-filled hovercats, or helium filled. I am sure we all remember the disaster of 1938 (Oh! The felinity!) involving the hydrogen Katzeppelin.
    By the way, Pookie, the German air force is still called the Luftwaffe, although it is the Bundesluftwaffe these days.
    (What does a German fighter pilot eat for breakfast? Luftwaffles.)

  70. @Mika: EXTERMINATE….mew!

  71. Fluidstatic says:

    Fluffwaffe… of course. Thanks guys. (260Oakley wins. XD)

  72. the photoshopper has attention to detail, he/she even added the shadows of each fluffball. Kudos!

  73. Its SUPER CAAAATTT! -vrooming noises- ykwim

  74. Hon Glad says:

    Von Zeplin – Was not the Hindenburgh disaster, a family tragedy for du?
    Englishmuttersprachlerin bitte.


  76. @marmar:
    me too! I hear lightsabre ‘fwoom — fwoom — fwoomfwoom’ noises from the hovercats, who I’m sure would have blue circuit lines.

    And who knew the Flight of the Valkyries has a CO connection, what with the jostling pwnies and all?

  77. You’re killing me! I now want a Hoverball Cat bobblehead doll. Seriously. Can someone make me one of them?

  78. I was wondering when “oh the felinity” comment would hit!

    and these….are furigibles!

  79. Dub1 — hehe. Flight of the Conchords != Ride of the Valkyries.
    Some grade-A video mashup potential there, though.

  80. Diese sind die Furigibleiden der Fluffwaffe!
    (LOL, John & 260 Oak)

  81. This might just be the best thing ever. And “Floofwaffe”! No doubt this will soon be trotted out as our new national defense policy. Hovercats in formation! The world will tremble!

  82. The “Carmina Burana” comes to mind as well…

  83. Resriechan says:

    @ kittykye:

    (raises hand) ME too…. and frankly (sorry Ed’s) while the hovering motion is technically creative, it makes it even creepier to me (I really don’t know why…but there it is)

  84. Queen of Dork says:

    Hon Glad #45: “the ones with tuna bref” LOVE IT! Hahahahahaha! Hahahahahahahaha! I would freak if I went out in the back yard and saw this in real life. It would be terrifying yet hilarious at the same time. I guess I would scream, laugh, scream and then go to bed and hide under the covers, wondering who the heck had slipped me acid somehow.

  85. *ahem* Anyone else REALLY not want to be below when they drop “bombs”? As if cleaning the litter box wasn’t bad enough…

  86. @Caroline, yes, especially the “Oh, for Tuna!” part. 😆

    [That’d be a cartload of Win right there. 😀 You didn’t even need to change the spelling. – Ed.]

  87. hopie1980 says:

    TRIBBLECATS!!! they will start pouring out of the walls and ventilation systems soon

  88. @Saffron, actually, that was not the most disturbing image from “Zardoz”:

  89. Holy crap, that literally startled me! Most surreal thing Ive seen in a long time.

  90. Simply ADORABLE!!!

  91. @Theo:
    face/palm for my Freudian slip of ‘Flight’: ‘Apocatlypse Now’ Hueys and a Hiphopopotamus in the soundtrack mashup, too, mayhap.
    I plead Flooftvaffe on der brain: best — neologism — EVAH!

    And Jemaine for Men in Black III !!

  92. Hehehehe I´d go for the Ride background 😉

  93. 😆 If I saw that 😆 I would open cans and cans of kitty food for them 😆

  94. Flutterby says:

    WTF???? Creeeeepy li’l critters!

  95. Doom.

  96. HRBLS!

  97. hahahaha! this was hilarious when there was just one hoverkitty. Now there’s a fleet!

    […or a Float. 😉 – Ed.]

  98. @N. Fritz: I was sure nobody would get that one.. (tears of joy)
    @Wuyizidi: Bwahahahaha!

  99. I got 99 comments, and a bitch ain’t one. Hit it!

  100. mervtheflamingo says:

    Keith Handy FTW

  101. I really want someone to make one of these little furballs into a basketball in the hands of my beloved Jayhawks, sproinging up and down the basketball court.

  102. ❤ @ Theresa, and…OH MY EYES!!!

    I wondered if any of my cats could do this, but that means they would have to actually stop napping and be ambulatory. 🙂 ..and it would take time away from barfing.

  103. @Saffron, and just think, that man was KNIGHTED. 😛

  104. “Prepare to meet your HORRIBLE DOOM!!!”

  105. bookmonstercats says:

    Going back to Theresa’s wonderful vid of the the Valkyries (half a dozen sopranos in full flight – I’m still hiding behind the couch), we (mon famille et moi) got stuck in our car in frozen snow on a notorious British road called the Cat and Fiddle. My son got the front wheels unstuck from the ice (puh-leeze don’t ask how) and the car careered wildly on home. We had Classic FM on the radio and Ride of the Valkyries came on, playing us most of the rest of the way home. Oh how we larfed!

    I lof hovercats.

  106. @Bookmonstercats, get any motorcyclists? 😛

  107. Resriechan says:

    @ bookmonstercats: I don’t NEED to ask how he thawed out the wheels; the
    space “between the lines” is perfectly clear…..yellow ….liquid ….
    .(Yup; I was raised around 3 brothers…)

  108. BStrange says:

    Too many threadlaughs to list… Oh, but why would they need lasers? Hairballs before and bombs behind (and chemical weaponry, too. PSHHT.)… And (I presume, I thinks I sees a tailio-nubbin back there) lashy angry hovercat tails and nomming-gear for close-quarter engagements. I fear, I fear…

  109. Fluffwaffe! That’s the best! Can I order them in any color and pattern? I want a whole fleet!

  110. CatZeppelins

  111. Call my psychiatrist! I coulda sworn I saw one of the hovercat’s ears twitch.

  112. Rrrrrrrruuuuuuuuuuunnnnnnnnnnnnn ! This reminds me of “V’ end battle were the aliens bite the heads off of mice…lol.

  113. @Roooanne..that might have been their turn signal! Space cat craft. Imagine trying to pick up and it freaks out like Edward scissorhands. Ok Im done now!

  114. They fly with such precision! vvvvewwwww.

    *breathe breathe breath*

    OMG TOOOO much! WIN WIN WIN for NTMTOM (Valkyries AAHHHHAAA again) and 260Oakley (Floofwaffe I don’t know if i’m dead from laughter or fear of bombing hovercats!) and too many others. CO does it again.

    (Except @Theresa PLEASE take that picture back out of my head)

  116. Theresa, I had forgotten what a deeply weird movie that is until viewing clips on the interwebs. He sort of looks like a proto-Borat….
    ..and, OH MY EYES!!

  117. NutherDeb says:

    I can’t stop laughing!!! Between the look on hovercats’ faces to fluffwaffe, this post will be the death of me!! I will die happy! 😀

  118. @ Teresa “Oh, for tuna”… 🙂 🙂 🙂

  119. Please tell me someone remembers “Laser Cats” from Saturday Night Live. Just imagine Lasers shooting out of their eyes. This is the Cutest Intergalactic Weaponry Ever!

  120. Yitzysmommie says:

    I can only laugh and laugh, no good comments, sorry!

  121. lol they look like cheese balls

  122. @Juliana: I don’t remember SNL but here’s something close.

  123. HAHAHAHA!!! Big belleh laugh!! pew, pew pew. Those guys are awesome.

  124. @Caroline 😆 Oh yeah, I would be saying to those kitties “Enjoy the tuna.” as I open up all those cans of tuna flavored cat food 😆

  125. SparklePaw says:

    I LURVE hoverball cats!!!

  126. If only I could put this as my background for my phone! Hovercats! What a cool video game this would be cool!

  127. OM(f’n)G !!!!

    That was so hysterical that I had to put my hand over my mouf to keep from bursting out laughing!!! [altho’ the work gang *might* deign to come see what’s so funny, they usually don’t bother!!]

    I’d see the Hovercat — but these 3 really made my day! I will return to getting some giggles when the poop hits the ventilator here!

    Thanks, y’all!

  128. For maximum effect, listen and watch…

  129. hiihihihihihhihihh……
