It Just Works Redonkulously

With today’s release of “Lion,” its newest operating system, Apple is running out of big cats to use as code names. But Twitter user Kookizu has an elegant idea: OS X Maru, with advanced functions ready to go, right out of the box — assuming you can get it out of the box.


Thanks to Twitter user SunnyinSyracuse for keeping us on our toes.

Makeover for Maru

Want to experiment with hairstyles without the commitment? Let Maru, our boxaholic beautician, picture your lovely locks in the latest looks, thanks to cutting-edge cutting-hole-in-box technology.

The Tail is Willin’, but Maru be Chillin’

It’s not the heat, it’s the Marumidity. But Maru, you have so many fans.

Don’t look, Ethel! Maru’s over-exposed! (peeks through fingers)

Thanks again to hot sender-inner, Ant.

 

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.

Dr. Drew, Where are You?

Dear Maru:

You are an amazing cat. You make us laugh on a daily basis. We imagine what it must feel like to be whipped by your 12-pound tail. We marvel at your glorious girth; your density puts Garfield to shame. But we write this letter because we fear for your well being. Your addiction has become all-consuming. We love you and we ask you to seek treatment today. Will you?

xoxo

C.O.

Must. Get. Secret. Treat.

Oh, Maru. Even at your most uninteresting, you continue to delight.

More more more Maru here.

Maru Pours Himself Into a Box

Maru should really lighten up on the deep-fried mice:

Enjoy ALL the Maru action over on his YouTubes Channel. Thanks to Ant for another Quality Foraged Link.

Slow-Mo Maru

Maru’s owner, who we suspect buys large household gadgets just to get the boxes, is getting much better at this slow-motion stuff. Here we see the Weightless One from new angles, and enjoy the rare Slow-Mo Maru Box Entry Fail!

Ssspppooottteeeddd bbbyyy Jjjooossshhh Nnn.

Jeesh, Who Knew Maru was Such a Whiner

Interesting. I always pictured him sounding like Vincent Price. Go figure.

Thanks, DaChickenLady! See more Maru here, as if you don’t know already.

How to Fire Your Maru Cannon

Like all dangerous munitions, the Maru Cannon must be loaded with extreme care. Do not attempt to place Maru in the cannon yourself — simply leave the cannon unattended and Maru will be drawn inexplicably into it.

Next, make sure that Maru is coiled tightly at the bottom of the cannon, to attain the necessary “spring-loaded” effect.

When firing, be aware that Maru may not always follow the desired trajectory.
