The twelve funniest seconds of your day

close

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

This post was published more than 13 years ago

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 13 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and wrote about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 13 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

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.
