Sweden weighs in on Cats 'n' Racks

It was only a matter of time before the Swedes got in on the Cats 'n' Racks action. Check out Ms. Hanna K. here. She's all "der teh der" stuffin' a kitteh in her rack. Ahn.

Eeek! That kitty looks so cozy and content! If my two weren't so big, I'd set up a cat n rack pic myself!

Um, miss, your cleavage is honk-shu'ing!?!

Contrary to human male preference, the slepping kitteh actually prefers a modest rack for honk-shuing.

Lol! Such a sweet titty kitty! And the kitty appreciates the warmth , too.

I love the gray tabbies, too! My Murphy was a twin of this bebe. Murph the Smurf! I miss him.

A-hem.

This may not be the time or place, but I thought I'd share with you:

THE BALLAD OF THE NUFFINGHAMS

(This was inspired by recent commentroversies...)

There is a website called CO
And to its pages thousands go
To get their sure-fire daily fix
Of kits and puppies, hams and chicks

The place is frequented by Peeps
Who often lose much-needed sleep
With pudding fights and awful puns
And pirate talk and snorgling buns.

The Peeps are known by "Aww" and "Squee"
And some excel at poetry
They all engage in happy banter
They're quick to slap the off-track ranter

But there's another, darker crowd
Their voices ring out long and loud
Not on every posting, mind
But only ones in which they find

Some hint of hidden danger there
Of which we all were unaware
Until they kindly pointed out
What we should all be freaked about.

No picture's ever simply cute
Its testimony speaks, though mute
Of untold suffering and pain
Occurring just outside the frame--

The Dark and Awful consequence
Of our lighthearted ignorance
Of all the dreadful things that happen
To Cats with Birds, and kittens nappin'--

The blood and mayhem, goo and gore
We didn't understand before
These solemn pundits let us know
Yes, we can't see it, but it's so!

There's tragedy in every pic
Oh no, watch out, the dog and chick!
The baby's play is cat abuse
The cat and bird--well, it's no use--

They chorus all in tones of gloom
About each picture's certain doom
And those of us who think it's cute?
Naive, uncaring, harsh to boot.

The kittens now are surely dead
That baby's got a squashed head
The bird is suffering bad infection
We know thanks to their skilled detection.

It's up in arms! We must react!
And everyone should form a pact
Avoid CO from past today
And call the good SPCA

They'll surely stop this awful stuff
If we all storm off in a huff
CO will lurch on in control
Of Nuffinghams and Cute Patrol

No pics with kids, or double species
No cats 'n' racks, rude words or feces
Be careful 'cause we'll analyze
And cut your picture down to size

Those silly folks who think it's cute?
We'll harsh their mellow, down we'll shoot
Lightheartedness or hint of glee
And anyone who dares to "squee";

The world will be a better place
For kittens and the human race
We'll sit back and enjoy the fruit
Of our do-gooding: safer Cute.

Beware lest you should give a squee
You're just not thinking carefully
Watch out, examine, look again:
For danger lurks, beyond your ken...

And nobody is asking Teri if she is talking about her cats?

Great job A thinker! You coould put music to that.

(I heard cymbals crashing. I did! I did!)

Danielle

(huh, TypeKey & TypePad services seem to be wonky right now...)

Thinker? You are an effing genius in AABB.

Theo
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:43 AM

LOL, Teho!

Granted, that's not saying much, but still. ;)

 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:44 AM

That poem was off the hook! My props to you "A Thinker".

Although some may wonder how much time you have on your hands :)

Wow
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:45 AM

thinker, you sir or madam as the case may be, are a credit to these tubes we call the internets.

thank you. seriously, thank you.

THINKIE! Smooch. That's just pure geniosity!! I'm printing out. Every peep should carry a copy and have a worldwide chant-aloud when the nuffs get their scruffs up.

jaypo
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:53 AM

Danielle....lmao....you made me choak on my coffee! Yeah, maybe I should have specified that it's my cats that are too big for a catsnracks pic....I reread my post and realized just how it looked....lol

What can I say? I was so overcome by the cuteness of that little grey fluffers I lost my head!

ROTFLMAO!

Teri
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:55 AM

w00t! Glossary update! My tanks, Teho.

A thinker
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:57 AM

Thinker...that poem was fantabulous!

Teri
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:58 AM

Teh paws! Teh paws!

kittikin
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 07:59 AM

LOL! Symbals...

I'd make a Rack photo with my kitty, but I've got the opposite problem that Teri has, I've got nothing there to show... ;_; I've got the anti-rack!

YaY Tink! YaY T_O!

Maybe we should bury a troll among the QTe on YAY?!

jaypo
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 08:15 AM

Jaypo -- there *is* one, actually, and has been since the first version. He's not buried, though. See him Yay'ing there on Freako's shoulder?

Brilliant.

zelda
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 08:58 AM

Thinkie, that poem is a KEEPER!! Someone please to be immortalizing the poem-y goodness...? We need a Poetry Corner here! *LOL*

Yeah I kinda sorta blew my top at a Nufingham last night a few posts down...all I can say is, don't annoy a Peep who is suffering from severe allergies and is under the effects of ephedra-based antihistamines.

Oh--and I would like to take this opportunity to gleefully announce to all curious Peeps, that I have recieved word this morning that we're now in the final stages of closing on a groovilicious slice of 80's-era architecture. After several mild hiccups and a near-disaster, it's good to know this insanity is drawing to a happy conclusion! *snoopydances*

A thinker, thank goodness there are folks like you (and Teho and aubrey and e. collison, etc.) on this site. Although I only post occasionally (and it's always to squeal over the cute, never to be a poophead), I check this site about 50 million times a day, so I appreciate all the poems, puns, and puddin'.

Laura
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 09:21 AM

Thinkie, you just thought us right out of the water!

Oh, this photo? Hot crosssed paws for breakfast!

Aubrey
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 09:30 AM

Thank you thinker for the incredibly apt poem. I was such a crabby crab last week reading about all the "cruelty" and being put in my place for thinking interspecies mingling could be cute.

I didn't have the heart to comment tho...I never do. I don't like to add fuel to the huffy nuffy hellfire.

"there *is* one, actually, and has been since the first version."

teho, I had something in mind more like this:

OOOOooo, *hopping around*.....thinkie, I hearby dub ye teh Bard of CO!

And, Teho, big hoppin' YAY for updatin' da glossary with such genius!!!

Something good HAS come of the Nuffs!

"You got your butterscotch in my brulée!"
"No, YOU got YOUR brulée in MY butterscotch!"

Three things:

1. Yay Thinker! Your poem was thoughtfully arranged and its rhythm was perfect, with hardly any of those forced getallthewordsinbeforetheendoftheline type rhymes. ;)

2. I can't possibly do a Cats 'n' Racks pic. Both participants would be so oversized we'd need a circus tent to contain them and a panoramic lens to capture them.

3. Check it out: the girl's got the same wooden criss-cross box end table I saw at Ikea a while back! The Swedes actually DO use Ikea stuff! :D

 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 10:15 AM

ps: And by "both participants" I mean the cats AND the rack. (And not bragging -- not with my big fugly bras and backaches.)

::sees Teri's point that it's hard to make these things clear!::

Lauri... I found a creme brulee recipe in my favorite cookbook last night. I'm testing it in the MamaDawn kitchen on my 14 and 18 year old boys this weekend, then it'll be ready to send out.
Yea for puddin'!!

MamaDawn
 |  Oct 03, 2006 at 10:21 AM

MamaD -- your boys can have fun with the blowtorch step. Yee haw!!
