This may very well be the best thing ever today.

The real ceiling cat stares down with unwavering and accusatory eyes. Papercraft ceiling cat is smiling and nonjudgmental.

Unwavering.

Accusatory.

Ceiling cat may not approve.

An do not let us leed into teh showa, but deliver us from teh wawter.
Ceiling Cat pwns all. He pwns teh ceiling and teh floor and walls too.
Forevur and evuhr. Amen.

From Teh LOLcat Bible Translation Project.

Hey, does just what it says on the... hey, it's a box!


Smells like AOL in here.

No it doesn't. AOL smells like many things - including fire, brimstone, anguish, and fail - but it doesn't smell of wet tissue, hand lotion or sometimes batteries. And cat.

At least, it doesn't usually smell only like that. Usually there's some fire or torment going on when it's AOL. Like a heavily burnt pubic hair omlette.


Apoglogies to otherwise perfectly nice people who are stuck with AOL for whatever reasons. It's just that... I still remember the horror, over ten years ago, when the Gateway to Hell opened. Try to imagine what that was like, for us nerds. It was like we were at a particularly rowdy CalTech undergrad drinkathon, or at least a good RPG game with lots of beer and pizza and suddenly someone dropped a combined monster truck rally, purebreed dog show and a managerial skill-building conference on us like a blizzard of noise and the most mundane anguish we could think of.

Not that us poindexters deserved it all to ourselves nor to be taken down a notch or three, nor do I believe that in the end it wasn't all worth it to share, and even though some of us got fantastically rich (and even useful) in the process, it was like losing a haven or refuge when it all went down. I remember Pong my first banner ad, my first email spam, my first browser hijack, etc. It wasn't supposed to be like this. WTF, am I channeling Dvorak's Last Column? Stop that!

I've always thought the whole LOLcats thing was really stupid, but Ceiling Cat rules. If I can find a glue stick my 4-year old will probably like this one.

Ceiling cat is greater than or equal to Powerpuff Girl cuteness. So cute. Too cute. My eyes are going to swell and burst, and ooze sugary sweetness all Robert Rodriguez-like.

It strikes me that this would be the perfect way to hide an ironic spycam.

I can't wait to use this to freak out my girlfriend. It's bad enough when my actual cats perch in high places and stare at us. It'll be even worse with a creepy paper cat staring down from above the bed.

Hee, I printed two of these out and a cohort of mine and I put them on the ceiling and a nearby shelf bottom at our place of volunteering. (They encourage random decoration by the staff.) They are tiny, yet amusing.

Funny, the new South Park had something to do with cats, and then I read this. Cats... AND papercraft. Two levels of similarity!
