Cats and Crows – Street Fighters

No need to travel to the savannas of Africa to see nature in all its brutal glory.

Just peek out your window into your backyard or peer down from your apartment building and see what’s going on in the streets below.

To prove my point, here’s an epic battle featuring two cats and two crows.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all who stop by here today.

I Can Haz Exrcyz – Treadmill Cats

Here’s a little something to get you ready for the rat race today.

Personally, I like the way the one cat just works out his front legs and keeps two feet planted firmly on the floor.

It’s sort of a Casey Kasem “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars” sort of philosophy. How can you go wrong with that?

If you want something a little more techno than this ditty to pump you up, check out the Shimmy Shake.

Classing up the joint

Let’s see, I’ve recently covered everything from geriatric music with The Big Joe Polka Show to the more contemporary brassy new release from The Cat Empire  Sly to The Dude of the silver screen in The Big Lebowski.

Now I take you to the Bard himself, William Shakespeare and his masterpiece Hamlet.


Cat scat fever

Not being a connoisseur of coffee, I still find it a little hard to believe that this particular blend is popular. A shop in Minnesota is selling a style of coffee, Kopi Luwak, that is created from beans that are eaten by Civet cats. Thanks to fark for pulling this one out of their butt.
Let’s think about how those beans, some of the most expensive anywhere, are recovered. Yup, they have to be pooped out before they’re ground into the delectable cup of joe (not to be confused with
Cup of Joe Powell) which is so coveted it costs $10 per cup. Although, if I had to dig through poop to pull out some beans so some whacked-in-the-head java jonesers could sip on it to stay warm in the winter in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, I’d sure as Civet cat s**t charge an arm and a leg.
Here are some of the words and phrases used to describe this
java jive (a great tune by the Ink Spots, natch) – “thick with a hint of chocolate”, “incredibly full bodied”, “lingers on the tongue”, “very rich and soft”. Mmmm, tasty.
Boingboing has another article on this caca coffee.
Apparently, the Japanese are the biggest buyers of this bm bean, which doesn’t surprise me. These are also the same kamikaze diners who risk death to eat the
poisonous blowfish.
I think I’ll stick with celery and water today.
