Mimi In A Minute #14 ~ Does The Cat Blogosphere Know About This?




These things keep me up at night.
They give me a headache.
I just need sixty seconds of your time to unclog my pencil brain
so that I can get some sleep.
Do you mind? I have a few things to say.
This is Mimi unplugged.

Hide your children.



It's time to play Whack-A-Kitty? You've got to be kitting me....
What's next? Smack-A-Siamese? Hang-A-Horse?
And this just three days after Michael Vick was released from prison.
I smell a dog......



To Dr. Condoleezza Rice and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:
It's tag team time! Get Thee both to North Korea before the world blows up.



Cut it out!

Hey you! A college textbook should not cost $300.00.
Especially since all we needed to know we learned in Kindergarten.


To the journalist jailed and freed in Iran.
You are one lucky young lady. Oh. And find an American publisher......






On North Korea's nuclear testing:
Let's all say it together:

Cut. It. Out!!!!





I'm sure this is against the Geneva Convention's Rules of Torture. Right?

Do we look amused to you??!
Somebody call the President!







To Susan Boyle: You are my hero. I hope you win.
(She sang "Memories" from CATS on Britain's Got Talent this week. I'll bet she doesn't whack kitties for fun.)










Forget about Susan! What about me?

HELP!!!

To the U.S. Senate on the appointment of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court: California got it wrong today. If there's any Justice in this world, you'll get this right. Give her a chance.


To Jerry Seinfeld: I've been holding this in for years.
You just aren't funny.



And finally....On OJ Simpson's conviction appeal:





We're working on a Whack-A-Convicted-Killer game. Your head looks like it might fit in one of those holes.
Does The Cat Blogosphere know about this? Mr. Tucker?

Has Daisy The Curly Cat seen this horror???!!
We'll take this to the highest court in the land!!



Whew! I feel better. Thanks for listening.
Sixty seconds flew by. I think my blogsomnia is cured.
Lights out.

P.S. I just got an email from Jerry Seinfeld. He says I'm not funny either.

1. $300 seems quite reasonable to me; since the course is economics, I assume the book IS the course and all you have to do is buy it but not pay for or attend any classes. Right?

2. Saw Susan Boyle's second performance and I didn't think it was as good as her first. Still, I hope she wins; she's great and her face can move, which is more than I can say for that chick at the judging table.

3. I truly hope that California will get it right sometime soon. I hate seeing friends (and strangers, for that matter) being treated as second class citizens.

4. Not only is Seinfeld not particularly funny, apparently he's not particularly nice either.

5. For the OJ thing -- can you substitute a sledgehammer for the little stick with the foam rubber? thks

katherine. said...

whack a kitty???
(where do you find these things???)

Maybe Condi and Hill and take Colin and Henry with them as backup?

the cost of college textbooks are atrocious.

Korea and Iran aren't gonna cut it out without force I am afraid...

I love susan boyle too

I think Sotomayor could be a good choice...however..she has no business mucking around in state's constitution...even if we don't agree with them

the funniest I have ever heard seinfeld was in the "B Movie"

Nevada has OJ...I bet they will keep him right where he is

sleep well your highness

fishingaround said...

I quite like Sotomayor. Hope those hearings go through.

Charles Gramlich said...

that kitty things is a little disconcerting.

Daisy said...

I think this might be a case for Secret Agent 007.5. He's been waiting for an opportunity to use his toolbelt.

Mojo said...

At least it wasn't Whack-a-Puppy. (Did I say that out loud?)

Jerry's full of it. Always was. You're hilarious. (And kinda hot too, which he also isn't.)

Hope they got rid of your rodents...

Lois Grebowski said...

I don't like Jerry's humor at all. Never did "get" it.

Whack an OJ would be great.

College textbooks? Outrageous. What kills me is the new editions that usually only have a few photos updated. And yet professors require them. But what do I know?

Margo Moon said...

I don't even wanna know what kind of sick search you did to find that video. Please don't tell us.

Thanks for the Prop 8 disapproval, Mimi.

Akelamalu said...

Whack a kitty? There are just some really sick people aren't there?

I love Susan Doyle's voice but the makeover hasn't made much difference to the way she looks has it? :(

The Gal Herself said...

First of all, thanks for telling the truth about Jerry Seinfeld. He never was funny, never will be funny. Oh, you're right! This does make you feel better!

It's clear that no kitties were injured during the play of Whack-a-Kitty. And in the interest of fair play, may I direct you to Whack-a-Mouse?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a bonus Condi doesn't. His name is Bill. As I recall, our relations with North Korea were more peaceful (OK, less freaking terrifying) when he was in charge. Maybe it's time to untie his leash and let the big dog off the porch for a while. I am confident that, with this much at stake, we can trust him to be Good Bill.

katherine. said...

I just wanted to weigh in on the Hillary has a bonus with Bill premise.

In specific other countries (such as North Korea, Iran, et cetera) Hillary is a necessary inconvenience to them. They do not consider her to be a force of this country they need to listen too. They consider women unimportant...no matter how strongly Obama supports her. The known circumstances behind her husband's extra-curricular affairs (many besides Ms. Lewinsky) gives her less power in her current role with other world leaders.

With Israel threatening (even promising) to stop Iran's nuclear progress...who did Obama send to Netanyahu? Hillary? No way. He sent Panetta.

Hillary won't be lead negotiator with North Korea or Iran. Neither will her husband.

Whack A Kitty...

where can I buy one of those?

KIDDING

Mimi Lenox said...

Fee - I'm sorry to hear that Boyle's second performance was not stellar. She is such an inspiration.

Looking for a sledgehammer...

Mimi Lenox said...

Katherine - Korea and Iran = scary.

Powell and Kissinger are great assets. Great thinking! Why didn't they ask us?

Mimi Lenox said...

Fish - Thomas was just as controversial and came from humble beginnings as well. Interesting....

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I don't care if it is just a foam hammer, it's downright weird!

Mimi Lenox said...

Daisy - I knew you'd find a solution!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - No, Seinfeld isn't hot either (but thanks) and honestly, I don't know how he became a comedian in the first place.

Rats are still around.....I'm on tip-toe.

Mimi Lenox said...

Lois - I agree the choices sometimes make no sense with these books. The publishers are in high cotton though.

It's interesting to read how many others don't find Seinfeld funny either.

Mimi Lenox said...

Margo - I stumbled across the video on YouTube. Bleechh!!

Proposition8 - what a disappointment.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - I thought she had refused a makeover. I do love her voice.

Yes, the kitty thing is just strange...

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - Whack-A-Mouse would be no fun for me. I couldn't stand to be in the presence of them or even look at them but you go right ahead!

Trusting Bill to be Good Bill is just too risky. I don't think he's very respected, unfortunately.

Mimi Lenox said...

Katherine - Thanks for the clarification and weigh-in. What a dilemma we are in.

Mimi Lenox said...

Vinny!!

Thom said...

Brilliant. OJ should rot in jail. California's Supreme Court should sink in the Pacific. North Korea should just go away...well Kim whatever the hell his name is...needs to be with OJ. GO SUSAN GO!!! you rock. Excellent post

The Gal Herself said...

The mouse is a wind-up toy and it's the cat that does the whacking. I feel about the American Humane Assn here -- no animals were harmed during the making of these videos.

We learned from his international tsunami and hurricane relief efforts how highly Bill Clinton is regarded in many parts of the world. Certainly Europe (where the sex scandal was a yawn) and Africa and Israel/Palestine. Basically every country where W. was viewed with ... um ... "skepticism."

This administration, with Sec. Clinton, is the third consecutive one to have a woman Sec of State (Albright/Clinton and Rice/Bush). So I'm surprised that a female in this role would be viewed internationally as so ineffective. After all, if both Albright and Rice were considered failures based on their gender, Obama would have noticed and appointed someone else. There were certainly many, many angling for that job. And Bill Clinton -- even post impeachment drama -- and Madeline Albright were able to deal peacefully with North and South Korea. I know Albright met with the S. Korea President more than once as a representative of the Clinton Administration.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack your "minute." I just know what an asset Bill Clinton is internationally. (My worry would be him undercutting Obama, which no one needs.) Probably more so than Kissinger -- he's too remote in time and besides, he was tied to Nixon, whose resignation was acknowledged as an admission of shame.

But I still think the biggest news in your post is that someone else out there thinks Seinfeld is UNfunny.

The Gal Herself said...

PS -- Sorry for this addendum, but Panetta was Bill Clinton's Chief of Staff, which is how he got to be on a first-name basis with many world leaders. His role as CIA also helped make him the logical choice to visit, as did the importance that this mission be kept secret. Hillary is a bit of 300 lb. gorilla when she travels.

Really, Mimi, you can come over to my blog and ramble off-topic if you want. I feel I now owe you.

Grace said...

Okay - we all agree Seinfeld is not funny - Thank you. His show wasn't funny, the people on the show weren't funny but the horrible truth is those people really, really do exist - I worked with them and godhelpusall, I dated a few - Not funny.

Whew - Thank you for letting me get that off my chest.

As a person who lives with 3 kitties, the video is too cute, you can see that they are so NOT being hurt.

BTW - You ARE funny...

Mimi Lenox said...

Thom - Thank you. So much to think about in the world today!

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - I love your intelligent banter. It's always welcome and never viewed as rambling or taking up space (but I will take you up on the payback commenting...just wait..bwaaahahhha).

I appreciate your comments on the political issue and I learned a lot, had forgotten some of this. It's an incredibly complicated and precarious situation. Only the safety of the whole world is at stake. That's all.

Lord, we need some humor, don't we?
Not Seinfeld though.....

Mimi Lenox said...

P.S. I ramble off-topic all the time on your blog (and others). It's fun..

Mimi Lenox said...

Grace - Thank you so much.
OK. We wanna know about the dates now....

I know the kitties aren't being hurt but still! Kinda disturbing and weird to me. It might be easy to put a little more weight on those little fluffy heads if frustrated...ya know?

Black Cat said...

The world's gone mad.

Ricardo said...

The woman in Iran needs to just get out of there. I understand the heritage thing and all and the job but really, get out. The jailing was a warning shot. A camel has a better shot at being treated more fairly than a woman over there. The country is in the dark ages.

The North Korea thing is pretty scary. I don't know what they're trying to do. they've lost their minds. They can't win.

It still shocks me that the so called most liberal state in America is this uptight about Gay marriage. It's legal in my state which means this issue should be yesterday's news. We're never on the forefront of anything.

Travis said...

The kitties escaped! Mr Tucker was horrified and will be writing his CongressCat.

Mimi Lenox said...

Black Cat - MEOW! You can say that again. MEOW!

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo - Ditto! Ditto! and Ditto!

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - I knew Mr. Tucker would rescue those poor kitties.
He is my hero!

Jean-Luc Picard said...

OJK is definately a good relacement for the kitties.

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

The treatment of the pussy cats on this blog is unfathomable. O will complain to the King.

Autumn said...

Amen on Jerry!
(See, I'm still around...kinda.)

Mimi Lenox said...

Jean-Luc - I thought it was the perfect choice.

Linda said...

I'm with Autumn ... Jerry Seinfeld has never been funny in my book.

You, on the hand, definitely have your moments!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Bud - Complain away.

Mimi Lenox said...

Autumn - I've been worried about you....

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

Whack a kitty. What next?
Put Seinfeld in the box... that would be funnier.

Mimi Lenox said...

Linda - If only I could have my own sitcom...

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - Great idea!

Mark said...

Just goes to show Jerry does not know funny!

Mimi Lenox said...

Mark - I don't think he would be amused at that statement or this post. Maybe I should go underground for awhile....

katherine. said...

what is next? whack a blogger???…
