T shirts are the bumperstickers of the...well, you know.

Seen at work today- Woman wearing
"Dont be a punk! Recycle your junk!"

This more enviromentally & socially concient than YOU young lady was walking through the crowded room
1) Not wearing her mask
2) Eating out of a styrofoam container
3) Using plastic fork

Like, I get the wearing the shirt ironically and I busted out laughing

Also seen, Man wearing
"Jesus is my savior! Trump is my president!"

My first thought was well you know.
My second thought was, "how the Blank do you square those two statements?"
My third thought was "i get it! Yes, I pray a lot myself because of those two statements not squaring. Help us Jesus!"

Not sure /he/ had a third thought but...

Cat Talk: midsummer's night

Cat talk: Midsummer Nights Dream, Pucks last lines

“If we shadows have offended,

Think but this, and all is mended,

That you have but slumbered here

While these visions did appear.

And this weak and idle theme,

No more yielding but a dream,

Gentles, do not reprehend:

If you pardon, we will mend:

And, as I am an honest Puck,

If we have unearned luck

Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,

We will make amends ere long;

Else the Puck a liar call;

So, good night unto you all.

Give me your hands, if we be friends,

And Robin shall restore amends.”

I always get stuck on a line or two of it
Know any Shakespeare by heart?

Cats & bard

Lots of people put Shakespeare and cats together. No surprise.
No one can insult like The Bard and none can inhabit such distain as a fluffy cat

That is the question...

To go outside, and there perchance to stay
Or to remain within: that is the question:
Whether 'tis better for a cat to suffer
The cuffs and buffets of inclement weather
That Nature rains on those who roam abroad,
Or take a nap upon a scrap of carpet....
