Cat on the Keyboard

Maybe you were expecting to see a cat play the piano. Well, there’s one cat who does, but not this one. No–this one lies down on the middle of the keyboard. And then the human works around him. This is so soothing, it    almos       put me          to      zzzzzz…

Birthday Greetings: Erlene

Birthday Greetings: Joshua | Lee Duigon

Happy birthday, Erlene!

If you’ve been wondering where she’s been, the thing is, her computer’s being awkward and she can’t get messages out to us. But Lee puts everything on Facebook after he posts it here, so Erlene’s been following along with us. She’ll be back when she can.

So we wish you, Erlene, a very happy day, lots of cake and tasty, crunchy grass, we pray your son is feeling better by the day, and we’ll all hop up and down when we hear from you again! Or my name’s not Byron the Quokka.

 


Killer Kittens from Venus!

If this cat video were a 1950s monster movie, the trailer would say:

SEE the attack on the box of tissues!

SEE perpetual-motion fuzzy cats! SEE them tumble, roll, and fall!

SEE the helpless scientists try to control it!

Cats Show Dogs Who’s Boss

What’s the matter with these dogs? They’re bigger and stronger than cats. Why do they let cats dominate them?

Our family dog, Pepper, had to stay with us one weekend, and we were uneasy because there was a stray cat who’d had her two kittens here in our apartment just a few nights ago; and Pepper never met a cat she wouldn’t chase. We prepared to intervene quickly.

But somehow Pepper and Angel, without benefit of language, divided the apartment between them and there was no fuss at all. Pepper knew better than to mess with Angel’s kittens. We all had a nice, peaceful weekend.


Educators Recognize ‘Centaur’ as an ‘Identity’

Centaur of Attention (Horse) - Centaur - T-Shirt | TeePublic AU

We were bound to get to this point sooner or later: crackbrained authority figures insisting we “affirm” whatever “identity” someone chooses to adopt–even if it’s a mythological creature that has never existed.

School officials at Hangem High School in Yuggoth, Michigan, now recognize “any and all identities” claimed by students and staff, and compel the entire school population to recognize them, too (http//:www.liketotallyfullofit.com). The school is redesigning the cafeteria to accommodate three students who insist they are centaurs.

Thanks to the revolutionary new policy, Hangem High’s student body and teaching staff now include three centaurs, seven vampires, Prince Charles, two mutually hostile Barack Obamas, a Dilophosaurus, Nancy Pelosi, the Lone Ranger, and Chuck Schumer’s Love Child–just to name a few.

“This has worked out very well indeed!” says Principal Albert “Clarabelle” Fanoogi, who now wears a clown costume when he patrols the school’s hallways, from time to time squirting students with a seltzer dispenser.

P.S.–April Fool!


New Milestone Comment Contest!

Is the Quokka a Real Animal?

G’day, everybody! Those quokkas up there in the picture are a few of the deans we’ve picked for Quokka University. From left to write, clockwise: Dr. Jimbo, Dean of Something or Other, Dr. Mimsy, Dean of Flattery, and Dr. Reggie, Dean of Play-Doh–every college needs a good supply of Play-Doh!

Lee has just told me he wants me to run another comment contest, like I don’t already have enough to do. This is a big one, though: we’re shooting for Comment No. 60,000! It takes my breath away, just thinking about it.

Just now we have 58,085 comments, so we need 1,915 more. Lee thinks he’s giving it plenty of lead time, but I dunno–something tells me we’ll hit 60,000 faster than he thinks.

And what about the prize? What’ll you win if you post No. 60,000? If it was up to me, it’d be a bicycle, or a ship–but I just work here, y’know? The guy wants to give out one of his books as the prize. I guess you can’t blame him. We’ll see–maybe I can talk him into something a little snazzier than that.

Anyway, let’s start the ball rolling with some sharp, witty, subcutaneous comments!


Dogs & Sliding Boards

Who doesn’t love a trip to the playground? (Don’t answer that.) Dogs do. They can relax on the swings, but the real action is on the sliding boards. It’s a lot easier going down the chute than going up.

You will have noticed there’s no footage of dogs on the merry-go-round.


We’ve Set Another Record

Breaking Records – Sarah Krycinski

Wahoo! We’ve set a new record here for views in one month. March 2020, you’re the new champeen!

The old record was 11,484, set in October 2019. The new record is 11,550–with half the afternoon and the whole night still to go.

Thanks to all of you, readers, commenters, regular and casual viewers. The next mark to shoot for is, I think, 12,000 views in a month. Hard to believe that’s possible; but we’re really not that far from doing it.

I wonder if I should mark the occasion by opening a new comment contest. I must consult with Byron the Quokka, see if he can run it for me. They’re awful busy, founding Quokka University. Trying to choose a mascot, I hear. Suggestions welcome.

Would you believe it? Tomorrow’s April Fool’s Day already. It feels like it was just Valentine’s Day a week ago.


Cats Who Can’t Stay Dry

When they’re not stealing cigarettes or money, most of the cats in this video are busy getting wet. They have an uncanny ability for falling into bathtubs full of water. Sinks are quite popular, too.

Sprinkle a few drops of water on my cats, though, and they run away.
