Winston Just Got Schooled.

Oh, Winston. You know you’re a bit of a hero in these parts, but that’s only because we’re drawn to magnificently fluffy, ambivalent cats with questionable intelligence. Yes, studies suggest your brain is the size of that kernel you don’t know how to eat, as evidenced in this cob-bacle. So it pains us (delights us!) to do this to you, but this is how it’s properly done. Winston, meet Myack:

That cob never saw that cat comin'.

Myack? Really?

R.I.P., corn. R.I.P.

He’s a cobnobbing cat, Lillian O.

Mmmm… Crunchy!

Golly, I just haven’t been getting enough fiber in my diet lately… Say, this looks tasty… earmn nawm nawm munch munch…

Sender-Inner Leila J. says: “Our office hamster, Peaches, is a bit of a trollop, and somehow managed to become impregnated and birth a litter of 11 without us noticing she was “in the family way.” It’s a happy-ending story, though, as she didn’t eat any of them and instead instructed them all in the worldly delights of noshing on fresh pattypan squash and strawberries. (related story: anyone want a hamster?)”

Yes, Please

(… OK, play it cool now; let him keep dangling it for a bit… just wander past nonchalantly… look interested, but not too interested… then just casually stroll over and oh who the hell am I kidding I want it I want it give it to me it’s my birthright as an adorable woodland creature dammit it’s mine all mine!!!)
