Except Simon's Cat is entertaining.

Never fails to make me laugh. Thanks

Be sure to check out the other Simon's cat films. The fly one is priceless.

If you could actually buy tape that sticky, I'd be ecstatic. Any company that actually a product like that would make a fortune. Still amusing, so thanks.

My cat sat on fly paper this week. I've been pulling stuff (leaves, bugs, candy wrappers) off her hind quarters for the past few days.

Simon's Cat is one of the strangest sites I've seen in some time. I have no idea how these people got that cat wedged into their Youtube, or why.

Well I just spent a minute grinning like an idiot...

This video made me realize that I've never played the tape trick on my 2-1/2 year old bundle of energy, Zuzu. Must sign off now. Will report back.

My cat is too smart. :(

The funnier part was the earnestness with which the GF asked, "Uh, why are you putting tape on the cat?"

I would suggest putting tape on the girlfriend...

I do keep forgetting to check for Simon's Cat updates, so I appreciate the reminders.

That was really cute, but my favorite is still Hot Spot.

Kinda crappy day, and this made me smile, so it's all good again. Thanks!

I almost posted one of these once. I like the art, but I hate the lame cat sounds. Get a real cat. Sample said cat to death. Be much cooler.

I love these, but my favorite will always be the classic Wake Up Cat.

Because seriously. Do you have cats? Then you know.

Yay! Simon's cat! Years ago I was visiting my wife-to-be's place when we heard a rising yowl of kitty terror coming from the bedroom. Her cat Sam was up on the desk, frantically shaking her paw trying to dislodge a piece of scotch tape. Unlike Simon's Cat, Sam was completely freaked out by The Thing That Should Not Stick to My Paw.

From memory, all sounds come from a real cat called sooty or snooty. Although, with the reliability of my memory, the cat's probably called lord poselthwaite the third...

Well that made more sense once my half-asleep brain realised most of the sound effects were coming from the cat vs shoe box fight under my bed...

This is only cute because the cat is acting like a dog. A real cat would have wasted no time removing the tape and perpetrating a very sneaky act of revenge on the owner.

I bought my daughter the Simon's Cat book for christmas. She hasn't even looked through it yet. But she loves the videos. Kids.

The only way I can keep a piece of tape on my cat for more than three seconds is to attach it with a stapler.

My cat sat on fly paper this week.

I had to hang some fly tape a couple of days ago, and due to the fact that it looks like the world's best cat toy, dangling from the hook like that, I've been having recurrent nightmares about coming home and finding all four cats bound together looking sticky and miserable.

Which I'd have to do everything in my power to free them from immediately.

After taking a picture or two, of course...

Yeah, it's actually not too hard to separate the paper from the cat, but the gooey adhesive stays behind, or rather, stays on the behind, which is what causes the problems. She's doing a lot better today.

"Uh, why are you putting tape on the cat?"

Our own jscalzi went one step further.
