I have no idea how these people got their cats wedged is space, or why, but this one of the strangest sites I've ever come across.

I think that this tumblr should be the sole artifact of our civilization. And I don't even like cats.

I read the novelization of The Cat From Outer Space in elementary school. I've never seen the movie.

I loved The Cat From Outer Space when I was a child. I have no idea what I would think of it if I watched it now. So I choose not to.

It's like a portal to all the alternate universe versions of http://whatyouseewhenyoudie.ytmnd.com/. I love it.

A month ago I began mentally altering the caption on every cat picture I saw to "The person who posted this/reposted this/tweeted this/forwarded this has toxoplasmosis". Not only does the internet make more sense now, I also understand many of my friends and colleagues better.

You should listen to them. They tend to know what the fuck.

Your last link immediately reminded me of these guys for some reason, louche.

I own two different space cat shirts. They are the best shirts. Particularly this one, though I'm a bit embarrassed to leave the house in it.

I see your cats in space and raise you William Blake: “Ruthven Todd was a Scottish poet, artist and novelist, best known as an editor of the works of William Blake, and as a writer of children’s books, including Space Cat.”

Sorry, looks 'shopped to me.

PhoB: I love the shit out of that shirt and I wear it all the time and here's how I do it: black leggings (I need some of those shiny ones, but can't find fatty sizes), a drape-style cardigan to cover my butt (leggings are not pants), and either boots or wedge booties if you want to be super fashion! Awesome! This way, the shirt is a bit more subtle. You will look super excellent, don't be embarrassed!

The Internet keeps redefining its mission upward. I approve.

Ok, this isn't really my aesthetic, but I still can't believe nobody called me. I'm right here.

You know, I suspected leggings were the answer but the shirt looks weird with a skirt. I'll wear it with a cardigan, thanks!

Of course, I will probably wear it with sparkly glitter leggings, but that's just how I roll.

Combining PhoB's cat t shirt with adamrice's leggings, we have an ~extraordinarily~ good outfit...

tshirt

leggings
posted by kellybird at 4:39 AM on January 8, 2013


Not to derail, but that top would look awesome with these (plus size!) leggings as well.

And they're on sale!
