Cat Found

I would love to tell you about so many things today but my diseased and tired brain just cannot do it.

So I will give you this.



Someone is missing their cat somewhere. You don’t have to live in rural America to appreciate the absolute wonder of this poster.

Update: Howdy to every one coming over from Eschaton.

    Oh, sure, and next thing we know you’ll become an A-lister yourself and won’t speak to your friends any more. Heh. Good for you — I hope some of them stick around and look at your other stuff.

    I have no idea, Masao-Kun, where it came from. It must be a viral epidemic. I got it through an email.
    They both make me laugh.

    In the (in my opinion small) chance that’s not a joke, I wonder how the male/female exam went?!?

    Saw the same notice with the same wording including the smiley but with pictures of a different animal.. almost certainly an April Fools joke.

    Irony is basically exaggeration withing an appropriate context.

    That isn’t the definition of irony. Colbert tends to engage in parody and satire, he often tends to use sarcasm, but not so often irony.

    Irony, is about expectations being different that reality…or when the full significance of a character’s words or actions are unknown to them but known to an audience. Irony is about contradiction, not about exaggeration.

    Looks like Opie my pet possum. Opie is away training for the tree climbing competition in the Beijing Olympics, that is if he can stand the toxic Chinese soup he’ll have to breath. Last letter from him was postmarked L.A. Opie wrote (he’s a really smart possum) that he was on the 10 imitating road kill so he could condition his lungs to the upcoming event. L.A. smog is about as close to Beijing as you can get without actually being there.

    That wasn’t in Hooterville was it?

    In any case, that’s so awesome. Hee hee.

  13. April 3, 2008 at 4:44 pm

    Not in Hoots.
    Sunset Blvd? I’m guessing LA. I’m smart that way. :)

    Thanks, t6, for the correction on irony. As luck would have it, there’s a rather good example of dramatic irony already posted in the comments here…

    It’s a los Angeles Guerrilla Artist.

    I found his Pod Cast on Libsyn

    It is a recording of the messages people left about the poster.

    Oh, Hell! That’s my pet wombat, Wally, that escaped after out-manoeuvring my flame thrower. Ended up eating the neighbour’s pooch instead.

    What I can’t understand is how Wally drifted over to the Western Seaboard of the USA from Epsom (in England, for those upright US citizens that haven’t yet discovered the existence of a world outside of the USA – and that’s most!) and am even more surprised that someone else had the audacity to claim Wally as his/hers. Don’t Californians have any sense of morality?

    At least Wally would have made a better President than @+%$£-face(What’sthe half-wit’s name?). Maybe Wally can fool you guys into electing him next President of the USA! For that you can thank me later.

    It might be a prank but it is funny, wonder how many people thought it was for real..

    Jon, you are very funny. “Irony is basically exaggeration withing an appropriate context.” Wrong, wrong, wrong. That is hyperbole. Irony is something entirely different. I suggest you consult a dictionary.

    Well… Unless Jon was using irony there, intentionally defining “irony” incorrectly…
