Arrogance & Elitism, Corruption & Graft, Family ← Previous post Next post → Comments William Henry Oct 14 2021 at 12:08 am Just remember… cats are only your friend because you can’t fit in their mouth. John Oct 14 2021 at 10:29 am Although, on occasion, they do make the attempt. Too Tall Oct 14 2021 at 12:16 am “Do a self-portrait.” Is that along the lines of “Let’s go Brandon?” A refined way of saying GFY? Could get added to the Southern dictionary as an updated version of “Bless your little heart!” Hunter, you may not have been successful in giving Skye the business, but if she has any moxie at all as a reporter, she is about to get all up in your “bidness,” and it won’t be pretty. Could be downright medieval. cb Oct 14 2021 at 12:31 am Yeah… https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Self+Portrait Valerie Oct 14 2021 at 5:04 am I learn so much from the comments on this toon. I probably could have lived the rest of my life not knowing this, but thanks, cb, for the link. Wood Oct 14 2021 at 6:50 am what’s the matter with kids today…. The more I see the more I’m determined to keep them off the internet in general, and social media in specific. Roland Deshain Oct 14 2021 at 1:05 pm When has there been a generation that has not asked that question? Pamela Oct 14 2021 at 12:11 pm Now that I’ve stopped laughing and thinking that is way too gross. Wonder if Hunter pays his hookers to clean the self portrait Neanderthal JTC Oct 14 2021 at 12:14 pm Man, the useless and disturbing things you learn here at the DBD… Why do I think it wouldn’t be the Hunter’s first self-facial? Dan Ryan Galt Oct 14 2021 at 7:34 pm Well, that was more than I needed to know….but now I know. Thanks…I guess. Son Of A Valkyrie Oct 14 2021 at 8:30 am Suppose the “bidness” involves Sam, Zed and all? Would be interesting? DogByte6RER Oct 14 2021 at 1:18 am Hmmmm … Mark Steyn might have something to say about that work office there. It’s so bad … that it’s good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNbmLIW8PmA Lifeofthe Mind Oct 14 2021 at 1:24 am Which cat inspired Sam? Which inspired Skye? Which inspired Jo? Beth Elliott Oct 14 2021 at 1:27 am I did! I did taw a puddy tat! Mike-SMO Oct 14 2021 at 1:49 am THAT is worrisome: A nuclear powered Jo with feline attitudes. The “tail talk” would be worth the ride, however. Lucius Severus Pertinax Oct 14 2021 at 2:52 am CATS!!! You got ’em!! And you got ’em BAD!! lol John M. Oct 14 2021 at 2:54 am I see you have “the crew” guarding the merch ’til you can get it all sorted and mailed. John M. Oct 14 2021 at 3:02 am Speaking of which, I got one envelope with a coaster and a CRA I.D. – I can’t remember exactly which were which. I made five or six separate donations, but marked several “no merch” because it would duplicate material. To be honest, the next year’s strips would be enough “merch” for me Neanderthal JTC Oct 14 2021 at 10:23 am CRA ID? Can you elaborate on that? Anybody else? cb Oct 14 2021 at 6:08 pm No clue, sounds like something that’d get you solitary confinement. cz93x62 Oct 14 2021 at 4:00 am That’s a nice-looking crew on duty there, Mr. Muir. I am pretty fond of those fur units myself. DCE Oct 14 2021 at 7:45 am I have a similar crew helping me when I work from home – Minnie, Pip, and Cole. They always seem to be present whenever I am involved in an online meeting, demanding attention. Then, once the webcam is shut off, they disappear…unless I am working on documentation for one of the many engineering projects I work on. MasterDiver Oct 14 2021 at 8:27 am Piper, Cuddles, Flo, And Suzie are breaking in new recruit Jaquie, our one-eyed rescue. She has finally figured out the cat hatch and is discovering this thing called “outdoors”, or at least the back yard part of it. Zar Belk! John D. Egbert Oct 14 2021 at 9:04 am Our rescue, Hobbes (our name for him), is settling in after what must have been an unfortunate existence before he came into our home. He’s getting affectionate — and pushy . . . John D. Egbert Oct 14 2021 at 9:15 am It’s interesting to contemplate the ramifications if cats were to develop opposable thumbs . . . John Oct 14 2021 at 10:39 am The lack of opposable thumbs is the only thing that allows tuna cans to survive. Major Matt Mason Oct 14 2021 at 5:32 am Norma Bates Kitteh and Sylvia Siamese send their regards. 🙂 DeeKayT Oct 14 2021 at 6:33 am Just think: if your cat could text you back, it wouldn’t. Wood Oct 14 2021 at 6:53 am A thing to which the youth should aspire. Son Of A Valkyrie Oct 14 2021 at 8:31 am Suppose the “bidness” involves Sam, Zed and all? Would be interesting? aelfheld Oct 14 2021 at 9:28 am If you need additional helpers I’ve a surfeit at the moment. David Oct 14 2021 at 9:56 am Looks like most of the merch is Chinese. Neanderthal JTC Oct 14 2021 at 12:21 pm Coolies have always been the slaves of production. The art, ntellectual property, and control of the process are all domestic…and, as clearly shown in panel 3, domesticated. Somewhat. rochester_veteran Oct 14 2021 at 9:59 am We had cats and they all moved in with us and stayed. All were kittens when we found them except one. The one that was older, probably a year old and she was our first cat. She was a black and brown calico, pretty kitty. We were living in the city then and my wife and I were sitting on the front porch and we saw her walking down the sidewalk and she looked scared. My wife asked me if she should call to her and I said sure. So she called to the cat and she came running up to and on the porch and just then, my older son came out the front door and she scooted in the house and was with us for 17 years! Then came others! 🙂 The thing is, my wife didn’t even like cats but Coco won her over. Such a good cat! Harry Cocain Oct 14 2021 at 11:28 am I’ve been “acceptable “ by a number of Felines. The craziest were the red furred one and the cross eyed Siamese. Is there a pool on when the 21st century’s “ Shot heard around the world may be ? Henry Oct 14 2021 at 10:52 pm When? No, but my money is on the Where being a Virginia school board meeting. Arkay Oct 14 2021 at 11:39 am Can’t even count the number of cats for whom I’ve been support staff over the decades. Even won over Spousal Unit, who now believes a house without a cat or two or three is empty and hollow. We rescued a four-year-old in July. We still have to keep her (SU’s cat) and my three-year-old cat (I’m definitely his human) separate. It’s gonna be a seriously slow process getting them to tolerate each other in the same room. But tiny Harley Girl needed to be rescued, and Czarny’s just gonna have to deal. CDR 215 Oct 14 2021 at 6:31 pm We have had a total of 7 over the years, not all at the same time: Mouse & Tacker, Thomas, Lily, Smudge & Timber, & Squiggles. They’ve all gone, along with their Momcat, Pamela. I miss them all. cb Oct 14 2021 at 11:42 am A good news shot ~ https://www.mountainhomemag.com/2021/08/01/363574/the-shot-heard-round-the-world Hardball Oct 14 2021 at 11:55 am Id rather they be purdy tatas JTC Oct 14 2021 at 1:20 pm Or purdy puddy’s… Funny, wife is off to Publix and Wally’s so she leaves the teevee on cartoons to entertain the critters, including the 3 cats, two old male cur rescues and the red Maine Coon female who runs the crew… Yep it was tuned to Boomerang and a Tweety Pie segment just as I walk by…“I tawt I taw a puddy tat…I did, I did taw a puddy tat!” Pamela Oct 14 2021 at 12:08 pm Our furry critters are Orange, Gizmo and Zoe. All Rescues and all totally different cat attitudes. They all want the Mama lap. That’s one cool looking crew Mr. Muir. Neanderthal JTC Oct 14 2021 at 12:10 pm Two big elements pending; One is the subpoena storm over 1/6 being weaponized with promised arrests for no-shows with the agenda of the suppression and deterrence of anything and anyone connected to Trump…would you hold or fold if threatened with total destruction? The other is this from Trump’s direct email yesterday… “If we don’t solve the Presidential Election Fraud of 2020 (which we have thoroughly and conclusively documented), Republicans will not be voting in ’22 or ’24…it is the single most important thing for Republicans to do.” Ignoring the garbled tense there, that sounds pretty damn ominous; is it finally an actual demarcation that has been missing for nearly a year now? What will it mean? The two may seem unrelated but they are inextricably intertwined; the former a threat that any elected resistance to the junta will be cancelled and killed, and the latter a promise to embrace that threat preemptively and eliminate that fake process altogether in favor one must think, of a new process and new representatives of a Free American Republic. Am I reading too much into it? I sure hope not, we have had so many false promises and unanswered questions that if this is just another one of those then our looking to Trump directly for any path forward is over and done, and his time of significant impact and leadership will be well and truly ended. I hope that is not the case. Kafiroon Oct 14 2021 at 4:02 pm My expectation is right after the new year, the Repubs will “start looking into” election reform. That will occupy most of the year without it accomplishing anything more than global warming. Thus leaving us in a worse position for 24 than before their usual talking BS. Sorry to be that way, but I have lived too long watching them all rob us blind. Pray Harder for SMOD! Halley Oct 14 2021 at 4:50 pm Yes… not to be Debbie Downer, but I could not believe he thinks Republicans (of the 23 Knives) have any intention of ”fixing” election fraud in time for ’22 or ’24. They will be far too busy obediantly fawning over ”Our first historic female president of diversity”. cb Oct 14 2021 at 6:34 pm Probably only one way to fix election fraud now… same as stupid can be fixed. And we know that ain’t legal. Richard Oct 14 2021 at 1:31 pm I’d like to propose that “Pixel” be named the “Greatest Cat of All Time”. After all, he can walk through walls. William Henry Oct 14 2021 at 1:58 pm We have 2 furballs…. my beautiful sweet Russian Blue ( Baby Blue ) who is my best bud and Miss Kitty. Miss Kitty was a half starved semi-feral stray when she showed up 13 years back and she has mellowed a bit over the years. She still has one goal in life…. find something, kill it and eat it. best mouser we’ve ever had. JTC Oct 14 2021 at 4:45 pm So John M alluded upthread that included in his swag bag the cats included a coaster and/or a CRA ID. Since I checked no merch when I deposited my shekels I didn’t get and haven’t seen it. Little help please? Chris Muir Oct 14 2021 at 9:00 pm CRA ID is simply the yellow plastic ‘credit card’. Neanderthal JTC Oct 15 2021 at 12:20 am Thank you sir. It is more than that to me. Could you stick one in an envelope and mail to me? Mort Oct 14 2021 at 5:33 pm I`ve had three dogs, and more than my share of cats. Hard to believe that anyone can draw cats as well as these are. steveb919 Oct 14 2021 at 5:44 pm Cats are smart and can be pushy. Had a couple and they were good pets, but I really prefer dogs. Dogs are my favorite people and smarter than some political folks in congress. the Chicken of Depression Oct 15 2021 at 9:48 am I’ve got couch pillows smarter than a lot of folk in congress. cb Oct 14 2021 at 6:57 pm Neighborhood strays come and go, 3 currently homesteading on back porch. Under foot outside is one thing, inside … forget it, I’m clumsy enough on my own. Kafiroon Oct 14 2021 at 10:43 pm Having spent a number of years living in different houses for months at a time, I got to feed quite a few feral cats. Most made their own rounds of different houses that fed them. Like a circuit. There was one the owner named Fritz and first, he brought a small female with him after a time. Then four kittens showed up with him. They showed until they were larger. Finally, only Fritz was showing up. He used to spend hours trying to stare down a Cony (Israel) that was larger than him by a good bit. NotYetInACamp Oct 14 2021 at 11:21 pm Let’s Go Brandon! Send him to Brandon! NotYetInACamp Oct 14 2021 at 11:26 pm All of my Cat Overlords found me and established domination and ownership. There are no stray cats to find me where I am now. Freedom! I miss my Kitty. They used to bring me some of their trophy kills. I suppose they wanted me to improve my diet. (Not trying to say that this could happen to anyone in particular.)
