The twelve funniest seconds of your day

Hold up!

See that little date above?

This post was published years ago.

My opinions have changed over time: I think it's quite fun to keep old posts online so that you can see how that has happened. The downside is that there are posts on this site that express views that I now find offensive, or use language in ways I'd never dream of using it today.

I don't believe in airbrushing history, but I do believe that it's important to acknowledge the obvious: some of what I've written in the past has been crap. Some of it was offensive. Some of it was offensively bad. And there's may be some brass among the muck (you can make up your own mind on that).

Some of what I've presented as my own views has been me—wittingly or unwittingly—posturing without having considered all the facts. In a few years, I'll probably think the same about what I'm writing today, and I'm fine with that. Things change. People grow. Society moves forward.

The internet moves on too, which means there might be broken links or embedded content that fails to load. If you're unlucky, that might mean that this post makes no sense at all.

So please consider yourself duly warned: this post is an historical artefact. It's not an exposition of my current views nor a piece of 'content' than necessarily 'works'.

You may now read on... and in most cases, the post you're about to read is considerably shorter than this warning box, so brace for disappointment.

This has been minding it’s own business down in the ‘Recent Finds’ list on the left of the page for a while now. But I think it’s so funny, I’ve had to give it its own post.

It’s probably very cruel of me to post it, but please try and see the funny side. My last cat post didn’t go down so well either… But then, I’ve had a bit of a crash course in complaints recently, so I think I should be able to cope. And most people will find it hilarious.

So please, sit back, relax, and enjoy the next twelve seconds.

Unfortunately, this video of a very funny cat is no longer available. More’s the pity.

My cat has done that many times with our baby gate. Don’t worry, folks, it doesn’t hurt them!

I came here from the bloggy award site, BTW.

My heart lurched for a second at the thought of the poor cat being hurt. But I couldn’t help laugh as well. *oops*? I came here from the Bloggy Award site as well. Congrats.

Thank you for the messages of congratulation, it really means a lot. I’ve posted a thing about the award here if you’re interested in reading more ramblings…!
