HA!

After watching that I considered my own situation, trying to determine which of my four cats would behave in that manner. The answer, of course, is all of them, especially this one.

This is my old cranky tortie cat's dream come true.

And we'd never know when it would be coming.

I just got done writing this when I came to hit MetaFilter one last time before bed...

I was sort of hoping for it to be one of those tanks you get around the 4th of july.

My cat passive-aggressively poops under my desk instead.

This is ridiculous. Cats aren't full-on aggressive to people, they're passive-aggressive. Cats have already invented what they consider the perfect corrosive act-- licking their own asses while you're trying to eat. If they destroy humanity, who's going to open cans?

Who needs cans when there's human brains!?

Oh fuck. Our cat Nancy was watching over my shoulder while I was viewing that. From the look on her face, she now Has Ideas.

the tank is no match for the will of the people

(the tank box is available online from various outlets for about $30 btw)

Shouldn't that tank have caterpillar treads instead of wheels?

I'm wondering about the ordnance. The first human was obviously hit by something akin to a disruptor. The second human was precision-targeted... M72 LAW?

(Though of course the tank was simply a mass hallucination which we are now sharing via vimeo. Kittehs don't need no stinkin' materiel.)

well... the initial salvo has been fired in the cat/dolphin alliance. 5/21 is only a week away folks.

In my experience, that's the kind of lip that gets this started.

Please note that the larger a cat gets, the less "passive" is its "agressive". The same holds true as relates to the cat's firepower.

Aw, a kitty!

You know this is exactly what would happen if they get access to ordinance like this. Cute little predators

Is this the same company that did the effects for 'Birdemic: Shock and Terror'?

porpoise: that's both charming and terrifying. My life is both richer and more filled with apprehension of these creatures I live with than before. I don't know whether to thank you or send out the cyber hit squad.

Evil hunter brains in an armored shell with a love for murdering?

So now we know what the first generation of Daleks looked like...

Hairless cat is appropriate as they come across as inherently, viciously evil+cute.

Ah, the M26A1 Purrshing, a fine tank.
