Friday Funny – Grumpy Cat Finally Speaks About Success

15 03 2013

We spotted this on The Weather Channel’s front page, of all places.

You know that you’ve arrived when you make it to the front page of The Weather Channel’s website. You’re then only a pair of water skis away from jumping your very own shark.

This just in from Reuters.

Evidently he has quite the influence on Internet types who produce things like this:



How to Not Work

This just in from our South Bay bureau chief:,2817,2414357,00.asp


“As it turns out, ‘Bob’ had simply outsourced his own job to a Chinese consulting firm,” Valentine wrote. “Bob spent less that one fifth of his six-figure salary for a Chinese firm to do his job for him.”


The worker “physically FedExed his RSA token to China so that the third-party contractor could log-in under his credentials during the workday.”


When the team looked at Bob’s Web history, the picture got a bit clearer. The worker – described as an “inoffensive and quiet” programmer in his mid-40s – spent much of his day on Reddit, eBay, Facebook, or watching cat videos.

Remote Control Flying Cat

5 06 2012

Yes, this is real!  As in, this is an actual, deceased pet cat that was stuffed by a taxidermist and then built into a remote control quad copter – a helicopter type aircraft with four smaller rotors.

I spotted this on the L.A. Times website but I have since seen it elsewhere and even heard a bit on NPR about it this morning.

The builder is a Dutch artist who was also the cat’s owner. The cat was called Orville (as in Wright), and he is posthumously called the Orvillecopter:


Check out the test flight:

I’m not exactly sure how to feel about this one. Certainly it is unique!  And kind of funny.  And of course morbid/unsettling. 

The Cats Are Taking Over

28 10 2011




Well, we knew this day was coming. At least people who live in my neighborhood did (I swear, we have more cats per capita than anyplace else in SoCal).
