Beware... it's anthropomorphized-kitties-in-clothing time.

I lived with someone years ago that had one of those posters with the kittens sneaking some smokes. Always assumed they were dead.

The San Francisco link really says "LOLCATS" to me. Way ahead of its time!

The cable car operator cat is kind of weirding me out.

Cute in a Brothers Quay kind of way. *shudder*

It's because it is licking it's chops while staring at the head of the other kitty.

It's not just a cable car operator, it's a zombie kitty cable car operator. Your feeling weirded out is perfectly natural.

And I for one would like to hear more about how something cute can make Space Kitty angry. If we send you to icanhascheezburger will we throw you into a violent rage?

Because that would be pretty awesome.

Like Dr. David Banner, only...different.

Why oh why does every imagined faux postcards or tourist snapshot of San Francisco somehow include a cable car and the Golden Gate bridge? (Which also invariably erroneously somehow appears towards bayside.)

I don't think there's been any point in San Francisco's history where you could frame up a clear photo of a cable car, an open horizon and the Golden Gate bridge all in one shot.

You know what happens when you take a picture in San Francisco? You get a picture of someone's driveway, porch, stoop, window, rooftop or balcony. Or one of a giant building. Unless you go up to Twin Peaks or something, and then it's all rooftops and balconies.

I can only imagine that this is somehow tied to the fact that in the overwhelming majority of suicide attempts from the Golden Gate bridge people almost always jump towards the Bayside, and almost never toward the Pacific.

I suppose this isn't any worse than those imagined postcards that feature the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn bridge all in one shot.

Heh. "So foo it makes me angry" is lovingly stolen from here. Enjoy.

icanhascheezburger is so far beyond cute that it zooms past angry and circles all the way back to squee.

I think the conductor cat is actually licking his chops at the thought of delicious "Hot Dog Stick"... wait... Hot Dog Stick is made out of Persian Cat. At this time, the zombie status of the conductor cat is indeterminate.

Ok, that Daniel Craig thing? THANK YOU, Space Kitty. It is so very important that I was directed to that and can now send it to a friend of mine, you have nooooo idea.

Yeah, thanks SK, I suspect that the Wife will greatly enjoy that. (She likes the new Bond.)

Yes, that was hilarious, Space Kitty. I remember some friends of mine describing something very similar about watching Hugh Jackman in X-Men.

(btw, am I the only one who thinks that if a couple of guys went on out loud like that about an actress in a movie they'd be tarred & feathered, but if it's girls doing it, it somehow becomes ok?)

three words? are you feeling ok today, EB?

Oddly enough, this is a double, although the previous post emphasized a different part of the Pelorian page.
