Friday Cats(blogging) with Thumbs

Catblogging with an opposable twist

When Slate ran a story on the Supreme Court free speech case about the high school student who got in trouble for the sign “Bong Hits 4 Jesus,” the sub-editor understandably couldn’t think of a better headline than “Bong Hits 4 Jesus.”

In similar mode, I can’t improve on… “Cats with Thumbs.”

Via Adweek’s 10 Best Commercials of 2011—though to my mind Nissan Leaf’s “Gas Powered Everything” takes the prize.

Friday catblogging: Demitasse roars

The love of fame: the ruling passion of the noblest felines.

After years of hearing the likes of Inkblot and Domino gain fame from their exploits, Demitasse Ubiquitous Tyger has had enough. He’s demanding his own place on Parnassus.

He even considered getting up to dramatize the situation.  But on second thought, he realized that his fearful symmetry spoke for itself.
