Off-topic: One Cat Roomba, Three Girl Rhumba

No misogynists today, just a cat in bunny ears riding a Roomba, and a classic song by Wire.

  1. First, before Mags.
    :)
    XD

  2. That dog looks so sad, what with the ears, and the disturbed nap. But the tail, I think that makes the roomba far more efficient.

  3. I think that cat is enjoying himself but he’s too dignified to show it.

  4. I think the easter bunny cat video lacks of a music on top of it. But I agree with TA.

  5. Weird. I was just listening to Pink Flag yesterday.

    In further kitten video news, let me introduce you to Henri:

    Part 1 is also good, but in this case the sequel is better.

  6. I laughed so hard at Henri Part II that tears were coming out of my eyes. Then I noticed, unbeknownst to me, that my cat was in the corner of the living room on her bed observing my giggle tear fest like what is the matter with her. I am going to show it to my boyfriend tonight.

  7. I think that cat’s tail is doing just as much floor cleaning as the Roomba. Too funny.

  8. With my boyfriend’s permission (since they are his cats, not mine), I present Kitty 1:

    And Kitties 1 and 2:

    My legs are covered with a blanket in that first picture, so you can’t actually tell how massive those cats are. They’re bigger than most Bichon Frises!

  9. @Viscaria, I have SUCH a soft spot in my heart for big orange tabbies. (They’re both sweet, though, your boyfriend’s humongous kitties.)

  10. @Cloudiah, yeah, the tabby is pretty cute, and generally more photogenic. Plus, he likes to play fetch! He’s such a dogcat XD.

    But — don’t tell them or anything, I wouldn’t want to encourage any sibling rivalry ;) — I gave my heart to the black one. He takes longer to warm up to people than his brother does, but if you’re one of the few he decides is worthy, he’ll stick with you forever.

  11. @ cloudiah

    I dunno, “my thumbs are not opposable, and yet I oppose everything” from the first Henri video really captures the essence of Existentialist Cat.

  12. Why we need MRA’s Part 287,472

    Why we need MRAs to stop being lazy, unproductive, whiny, misogynists and actually do the activism part of their name.

    fixed that for you

  13. Hey, David (or anybody else here who’d know). Iz your Northwestern talk available somewhere to watch online or download?

  14. Wire! Lovely. I’d just stuck “Surgeon’s Girl” on a comp of vaguely-medically-themed songs I’d made for a friend of mine who who has just recently started training to be a doctor, so seeing them here was a nice little coiincidence.

    @CassandraSays

    I dunno, “my thumbs are not opposable, and yet I oppose everything” from the first Henri video really captures the essence of Existentialist Cat.

    Are non-opposable thumbs even a thing, or is that just something like “ATM machines” that people say? Without opposability being involved, how do you distinguish between thumbs and fingers? I suppose you could, say, have a person with a paralyzed thumb or otherwise have a digit that isn’t opposable where an opposable thumb would usually be on a member of that species, and that would fairly inarguably be a non-opposable thumb, but is there anything not that contrived out there?

  15. Why we need MRAs to stop being lazy, unproductive, whiny, misogynists and actually do the activism part of their name.

    QFT.

    Doxxing does NOT count.

  16. I’m surprised the cat lasted that long. Too funny!

  17. Just read the entire Problem With Women Today (on boob roll). It is only one post. Wow. Just wow. What kind of person puts that on the Internet. It is two years old. I just cannot believe it. Maybe the spectacular psycho who wrote that is dead or in prison by now. I sure hope the FBI knew who he was.

    Goodnight.

  18. There’s a troll on Slacktivist at the moment calling itself m015094 and it smells kind of familiar to me. Anyone here read Slacktivist? What do you think?

  19. @mbaxter (Magpie?)

    Reads like a NWO/MRAL cross to me. What were you thinking of?

  20. who*

  21. (Yeah, it’s magpie – haven’t got the hang of this log in thing yet) It sounds like MRAL to me, specially after the big FUCK YOU meltdown. Wouldn’t surprise me if ‘bytebear’ was the same person.

  22. Crumbelievable

    Why we need MRA’s Part 287,472

    Yes, the world certainly does have a shortage of misogyny and rape apologia. Thank god MRAs have stepped in to fill that void.

  23. Why we need MRA’s Part 287,472

    Yeah, if you troll enough feminist forums and send threats to enough mommybloggers, surely that man will be released from jail.

    Oh wait…

    Dennis Fuller, Barry’s Attorney, said, “By grace, the woman he owed $50,000 worth of child support to agreed to relinquish that child support.”

    The woman gave up her claim to the money.

    So surely MRAs will be sending her cards and flowers now, right?

    Wait, no, there are still feminist forums to troll. And troll harder, and harder, and troll SO HARD that the draft gets repealed and men’s workplace accidents drop.

    ACTIVISM!

  24. “Doxxing does NOT count.”

    Do you count the cyberbullying by feminists as activism? Trolling a distressed man with pro-suicide messages = feminism in 2012.

  25. “So surely MRAs will be sending her cards and flowers now, right?”

    Yes…she was so kind to relieve him of his debt after he spend months in jail without a trial because of her. She was a good slave master.

  26. pujeemuhs, no, there’s no video. I’ll do a post or two covering what I said in the talk at some point. A lot of it was based on posts here on MB.

  27. Umn…. Buttman, until the paternity test was done can you prove she knew he wasn’t the father?

    Sounds as if she thought he was, and that as soon as she knew he wasn’t she did somethng she didnt have to do (as far as the law was concerned).

    So your umbrage, is bullshit.

  28. Do you count the cyberbullying by feminists as activism? Trolling a distressed man with pro-suicide messages = feminism in 2012.

    Yeah, you don’t know what you’re talking about, on multiple levels.

    Yes…she was so kind to relieve him of his debt after he spend months in jail without a trial because of her. She was a good slave master.

    Uh, if he actually spent months in jail awaiting a trial, that is not her fault; it is the fault of the municipality for being unable to uphold the right to due process (given the sheer number of drug cases, the problem ultimately rests on the War on Drugs and its proponents), not the woman he screwed and who tried to collect.

    Also, 50k in child support does not rack up over a few months unless you are filthy fucking rich. That is years of unpaid child support, which you can not pin on a slow trial.

  29. Sorry, I guess I should say “fucked”, to clarify that we’re talking about someone he slept with, not someone he actively screwed over.

  30. Good Point Rutee: Why didn’t he do anything to see about resolving the question of paternity until he was in jail.

    He flouted the law, got nailed, was; for him, fortunate enough to be able to prove he wasn’t the child’s father, and you are blaming her for his failures.

    For it to have only taken five years to rack up 50,000 he needed to have been assessed at
    833.33 dollars a month. Which he wasnt paying.

    So it’s not so cut and dried, when one stops to think about the details.

  31. Oh no, Buttman, better troll feminist forums until everything’s better!

    Troll harder! Troll longer! Troll with all your might!

    ACTIVISM HARDER!

  32. Do you count the cyberbullying by feminists as activism? Trolling a distressed man with pro-suicide messages = feminism in 2012.

    Oh wow, so … you’re not at all afraid to just come out and say, “I don’t know what I’m talking about!”, huh? Good for you, Buttman. Own that.

  33. I am willing to state categorically that trolling distressed men with pro-suicide messages is a Bad Plan and I condemn wholeheartedly any feminists or members of any other group I’m a part of that would do such a thing.

    And I think it’s possible to say that it’s shitty that men have to pay child support for children they aren’t biologically related to and have never had a parental role with while simultaneously saying that child support is, on the balance, the best of the bad plans we have.
