Super Bowl Cat Blog Friday

For this Cat Blog Friday...

... what better than football playing kitties?

Happy Friday everybody!

I don't have a dog in this hunt, but I'm rooting for the Seattle Seahawks because I detest the New England Patriots.

Leave your pick while you're here.

Murderous Nazi Super Cows

Who knew the Nazis were working on bio-engineering cows, too?

Holy cow!

In Dog We Trust?

WFTS In Tampa Bay, Fla. Reports That The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office Received A New Rug Wth A Typo That Reads, "In Dog We Trust."

Misspellings can be tricky. When Mr. Cube and I bought our first new car back in 1987, it read "Crevrolet" on the back. It took us about ten days to notice. When we called the dealer to report the mistake, one of the guys laughed, "Oh, you bought the Crevy."

We decided right then to keep the car as it was and owned it for years and years.

No Where Near Peak

I very much enjoy Clarice Feldman's writing, but I beg to differ with her thesis statement on this article:

2014: The Year of Peak Stupidity

Seriously, I may be too pessimistic, but I can't help thinking that with this leadership, we haven't hit the stoopid peak yet.

Today is my birthday...

And I am quite grumpy.

The following is a fake sentiment...

Happy happy joy joy.

Football, Seriously!

A new year and a new start.

Seriously, my husband wants me to curb the use of the word 'seriously' and I am willing to work on it, seriously.

Next, football...

Seriously, this is the first college playoff... I'm coming apart at the seams...

Yet, I am seriously striving to remember the inspiring words in the pic above.

I'm seriously working on it, honey.
