This grim kitty single-handedly dismantled the patriarchy.
If you ever need to retrieve your severed penis from a cat (or, I guess, any severed penis), apparently fish will do the trick.
After knocking over people’s bins in the search for food in the area of Daytona Beach, Florida, a black bear walked into one of the resident’s gardens and sat comfortably in their hammock.
“He got in the hammock like he was a tourist or something, then something spooked him and he ran right back there,” said Vincent James, the owner of the hammock, to news station Wesh Orlando.
“Then half an hour later I come back and I saw there he is in the hammock again.”
BTW, amazing title guys
Colby Nolan is a housecat who was awarded an MBA in 2004 by Trinity Southern University, a Dallas-based diploma mill, sparking a fraud lawsuit by the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office.
Colby Nolan belongs to a deputy attorney general. In looking to expose Trinity Southern University for fraud, some undercover agents had the then six-year-old Colby Nolan obtain a bachelor’s degree in business administration for $299. On the cat’s application, the agents claimed that the cat had previously taken courses at a community college, worked at a fast-food restaurant, babysat, and maintained a newspaper route. Then the school informed Colby that, due to the job experience listed on his application, he was eligible for an executive MBA for $100 more. The agents then sent for Colby’s transcript, which claimed that he had a GPA of 3.5.
Jerry Pappert, Pennsylvania’s attorney general, filed a lawsuit against Trinity Southern University upon learning that the cat had received the degree. In the lawsuit, Pappert also told the diploma mill, which had used e-mail spam to sell degrees, to provide restitution to anyone who had ordered a degree from them.
In December 2004, the Texas attorney general obtained a temporary restraining order under the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices Act against Trinity Southern and its owners, Craig B. and Alton S. Poe. The court also ordered the school’s assets frozen. In March 2005, the Poes were assessed penalties of over $100,000 by the court and were ordered not to market or promote fraudulent, substandard degree programs or to represent their university as being accredited or affiliated with legitimate universities. It was reported that the Poes also were associated with Wesleyan International University and Prixo Southern University. Trinity Southern University’s website has been offline since 2005.
The latest character to join the Sanrio family, the Japanese lifestyle brand behind Hello Kitty, isn’t a cuddly animal, or even a living creature. It’s an egg named Gudetama.
The company just released a short film (which can be seen below) featuring the little egg. In it, an egg shell is cracked open and out pops Gudetama, a glob-like creature with arms and legs.
Gudetama is pictured fried on rice, as tomago sushi and dripping from a cracked egg. He’s whiny, always has a face of despair, and according to the Sanrio release on the little guy, is “unmotivated.” His attitude is related to the fact that he only exists to be eaten.
And Gudetama is already on Twitter, with pictures of him on a plate of rice with the caption “impossible, oh.”
The character was part of Sanrio’s contest last year to find new characters based on popular Japanese food. Some of the other characters included a tofu geisha and a bread-shaped panda bear.
After a public vote, Gudetama was the runner-up, while Kirimi-chan, a salmon head, won first place and was developed into a line of products.
Slimy salmon and now slimy raw egg? Maybe there’s something to be said for drawing arms and legs on slimy foods we can’t get enough of.
EGGSCELLENT (yup, I’m trying super hard right now, sorry)
A Japanese photographer named Fubirai spent 5 years photographing and documenting the lives of semi-feral cats who live off the coast of Fukuoka, Japan. This island has been called Cat Heaven Island by many. One look at the photographs and life there, and you’ll see exactly why.
Behold. A cat lover’s paradise.
So many meowr adorable kitties at the link! Seriously, best place ever.
