(no subject)

fairgoldberry's response to merispork naming a cat Winston Churchill:

Can you live with him inspiring the other cats? Seriously, do you really want to subject your roommates to living in a house full of cats with aggressively stiff upper lips? Cats determined to endure their oppressors and resist to the last meow? I can just see little Winston now:

"We shall fight on the sofas, we shall fight on the staircase, we shall fight in the kitchen and in the living room, we shall fight in the litterboxes, we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this felinity or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our feline allies beyond the walls, armed and guarded by the fury of our meows, would carry on the struggle, until in Cat's good time, the rest of Catdom, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of Fort Norton."

Seriously, woman. Think about what you're doing.

Context suspects her house harbors a CatArmy.

Felisdemens is on the job, protecting kittehs everywhere.....

Quote is part of a longer entry on the New Cat, yay!

I sat outside keeping an eye on them. Eventually Kitty came up onto the porch and settled on the table, and they all fucked off to whatever dingy douche-scented entitlement hovel Daddy's money paid for this month, so I felt the coast was clear and went inside. I was a little disappointed that I didn't get to deliver my speech about how with a toaster and an extension cord I could raise the IQ and drop the chlamydia rate in Ventura County by equal rates. 

QWP, context knows that BOYSSSS don't find animal abuse sexxxxxxy.

On a discussion of phallic symbols at dinner...

cherryfeather has an interesting conversation in a restaurant:

"Take this knife, for example," I declare, picking my knife up off the table. "Straight. Large. Carries connotations of masculinity. Phallic symbol."

My mother with some difficulty refrains from calling "bullshit." "If that's true, you could say that anything's a phallic symbol! This fork, the spoon--"

"No, Mom, a spoon is clearly a feminine symbol," I say patiently. "It's curved and indented."

"Well, then, what's the fork? It's got a curve in it--"

"A fork isn't anything."

"It's got points, it--why doesn't the fork have a sexual connotation?"

Context wonders what the opposite of a phallic symbol is. F-locked and QWP.
