MML: A video featuring a song by Mike Polk. The subject is the blissful ignorance of cats. Contains swears.

My roommate's cat, Lloyd, might be the World's Grumpiest Cat. He more than makes up for happy-go-lucky ways of this stupid cat and all the other stupid cats out there in the world. (For those wondering, the only reason I was able to get that picture of him without him hissing/mauling my hand off is because I had plied him with kitty treats prior to the shot and was shaking the bag just off camera.)

I'm a creepy cat!

As someone who spends his time happily telling his cats to "Shut up because you're stupid, I hate you, and your face stinks" in a gentle, loving voice, I completely approve of this.

But I'm torn as to the best line, it's either:

"Now I'm shitting in a box cuz I don't give a fuck..."

Or the equally awesome:

"Holy Christ it's a piece of paper..."

Both seem to capture the essential catness for cats.

"Holy Christ it's a piece of paper..."

Yup, I was kind of "meh" until that line, and then it was awesome!

I just came to post the creepy Russian cat that walks on its hind legs, but Acari beat me to it.

it's funny when songs don't rhyme

so... I guess the subtext of the video and song is "who is TRULY the stupid one here?"

I often address our asshole cat (as opposed to our good girl cat) as WORST CAT EVER.

So yeah.

I laughed so hard I started sweating. This is being sent to all of my cat people. Thanks!

Pointless? Cats? Have you ever met a cat? They're full of points! Sharp, stabby, bitey points. Even old, declawed ones have teeth, with which to bite you.

My cats were not amused.

Well... One animal can poop whenever he feels like it, and the other animal must dispose of the waste. I think we know who's in charge here.

Where the hell do you work where cat youtubes are totally okay, but not if they have swears in them?

Any cube farm and many offices are like this. I can fuck off as much as I like, as long as I don't draw attention to it.

SPOILER ALERT: Metafilter is NSFW.

This is great. My cat was always very, very stupid.

I just learned that there is very definitely a generation gap among groups of cat people, because I'm running through my mental list going "Can't send it to her, can't send it to her, DEFINITELY can't send it to her...."

Metafilter: don't look at it at work because not every NSFW post is tagged as NSFW.

While I watched this and chortled, my Maine Coon snuck up behind me (not really, I'm a stupid human who was watching moving pixels on a light screen and laughing at them, so I just wasn't paying attention to mister kitteh) and he attacked my ponytail.

I am now going to use my massive frontal lobes to move my dexterous fingers to open a can of tuna for my pea-brained, fur-horking quadraped's evening treat.

Not quite sure which of us is the dumbest. I am sure glad he's a happy cat, though.

I was laughing until I remembered that most of my pets did actually know how much the world sucks. Then I sadded.

If you, like me, clicked on this FPP but not on the one about the half-million starving in Somalia, please be in touch-- I need to talk with someone about what a monster I am.. someone who understands.

Actually, swears are pretty much OK here. When you work at Google they make you sign a thing saying you might be exposed to crass language, nudity, etc as part of your job, since the interwebz are full of otherwise-NSFW content.

(and of course we have teams that review unsafe content, etc although their monitors are usually less visible than mine)

I generally view watching any YouTube video as "testing".

(MeFi itself is more of a stretch to justify, I guess....)
