Ceiling Cat Is Watching You Ruminate

In another installment of the Cute Overload Distance Learning series, we take you now to a lecture at the Philosophy Department at New York University:


This… Is… Photobomb!

So Much for That Take

Now in this scene, Melissa, your husband has just gone off to fight in the war, and you’re left to run the family farm alone. So as you slowly survey the yard, I need to see that sense of anguished helplessness on your face. Right, good. But then, you see the butter churn, and all those memories start flooding back, and right there you resolve to — HEY, THIS IS A CLOSED SET! SOMEONE CALL SECURITY!

Everyone’s Favorite Customer

Uh, yes, I’m looking for a copy of the album Mellow Moods for Modern Mousers by seminal be-bop greats Shep Hep and the Hep-cats, and that would be the original 1972 Decca pressing and not the vastly inferior 1977 picture-disc reissue by Snortz Records, which was marred not only by shoddy sound quality but by the almost criminal omission of the B-side “Hairball Blues,” regarded by many aficionados as the quintessential expression of modern arbity nargle freebitz krangle floop… (etc.)

Maru Gets a New TARDIS

To our favorite boxaholic, every container has more space on the inside than it appears to on the outside—it’s just a question of finding the proper entry vector.

Happy Father’s Day, Honey

I just want you to know that, even though you don’t hunt for food, or play with the kids much unless I ask you like ten times, or have a real job, or tidy up the cave even though you have the entire afternoon to do it and it really wouldn’t take you that long… despite all that, I just want to tell you…

Simon’s Cat, Household Archaeologist

In today’s episode, Simon’s cat unearths rare artifacts of the lost Frigidaire tribe.

Pup-vo-lution II: Bullet Pup Boogaloo

Jen L. raises the stakes: “I totally had to top your Pup-vo-lution post with my clearly far more advanced-up-the-evolutionary-ladder pup/plane/furball who goes by the name Milan. You can see how pointy noses are far superior to smooshed faces for streamlined performance. When not in flight he morphs into an extra floofy specimen of wirehair dachshund.”

Stalking the Wily House-cat

“Oh, the house-cat can be a tricky bugger to hunt,” warned our safari guide. “But once you’ve bagged one — that’s when the real challenge begins. There’s no more cunning or resourceful creature on God’s earth than a cornered cat, for certain.”

Get an Ocean, You Two

A pair of rescued elephant seals got a taste of freedom — and each other — when the Pacific Marine Mammal Center sent them back into the wild last Saturday. With well-wishers cheering, the pups shared a kiss before being shooed into the ocean.

2011: A Squirrel Oddity

We take you now to the training center of NASA (Naturally Aerodynamic Squirrel Astronauts), where would-be space travelers use this elaborate state-of-the-art simulator to overcome the difficulties of eating in zero-gravity conditions…
