Breakfast: The Most Important Meme of the Day
September 29, 2010 3:23 PM   Subscribe

"If someone ever asks you to describe the Internet to them in four words look them straight in the eye and say “cats morphing into croissants.”" May not apply to black cats, unless you like badly burned croissants. Croissants are good for breakfast, but so is bacon. And waffles. And cereal. And if you include "civet cats", coffee (via). And maybe even Pop Tarts. Seriously. (Sadly the t-shirt has been discontinued.)

Croissants, there's something new for 'the internet' to take too far.

I do not suggest actually testing cats' similarity to croissants by trying to eat one. Now I have hair in my mouth.

I am against cats morphing into croissants, for a few reasons:

a) A croissant curling up on my abdomen and purring? CREEPY AS FUCK
a.1) Butter-stain on my clothing from (a)
b) Who will redo all the lolcat photographs? NOT ME
c) Late-evening drunky-snackiness could lead to HEARTBREAK.

Count me out of this nonsense.

Okay, the cat that poops coffee? Too much.
And judging from my cat's breath, all cats taste like cat food.

I think the most confusing part of the video was when one of the croissants morphed into another croissant.

What a perfectly timely post for the observance of Caturday.

I can't even describe this FPP in four words.

It seems like you could go from crabs to croissants as well. Or, cut out the middleman and go straight from crabs to cats. CATSFORCRABS.COM LOSE THE SCUTTLING GET THE CUDDLING

A delicious croissant crab.

If someone ever asks you to describe the Internet to them in four words look them straight in the eye and say “cats morphing into croissants. The Internet is cats morphing into croissants.” self-diagnosed asexuality and Asberger's. The Internet is self-diagnosed asexuality and Asberger's.

Sorry, but you lost me at bacon which, as near as I can tell, rose to meme status because even a hungover frat boy can cook bacon if he tries hard enough and because its bad for people. Your favorite meme sucks. But don’t take that personally because all memes start to suck at birth.

Almost enough to make me try out gtkmorph. Almost.

I believe YouTube poster drZookIV put it best when he said:

Well, that was a thing that happened.

For a second, I thought you were saying a shirt of this had been discontinued, and I was sad. Then I realized that there was never such a shirt and I still had time to make one for myself!

One of my favorite things about modern American life is how a perfectly normal person with a boring American accent will sometimes, with no warning, just go completely nuts on the word "croissant." It might be someone you've known for years, but you never see the cwa-SSSSON coming.

Do not ask about the pain au chocolat or the croissan'wich.
