    This pun for the left picture is so bad that I’ve been forced to use a pseudonym, and if JJ tracks down the IP to out/ban me I will be most affronted. But here it flies:

    I hate myself for this more than you’ll ever know.

  19. I can’t spell either …here’s the corrected version

    While Chester learned of calculus and the stars and pondered the mysteries of the universe, FiFi learned to play the blues and developed a drug habit, pondering only the virtues of the night life.

  31. Rodney Dill says:

    As I sit and bask in the secure knowledge of feline intellectual superiority, reading from my favorite novel, A Cat’s Revenge by Claude Bauls, I only need to look out the window to be reminded of my freakin’ weirdo, tutu wearing, canine neighbor, who goes by the name of Desmond. Desmond’s modicum of intelligence is so near imbecilic levels that he cannot even remember my name, instead he incessantly barks out “Hey You, Hey You, Hey You.” I salivate in anticipation of the day when I shall grab him by the scruff of the neck, knock those silly Paul Schaeffer glasses off his face and say, “Hey MORON, THE NAME PAVLOV RING A BELL.”

  32. Lasting Magic says:

    “I’m reading here that Ralph Nader is running again.”

    “Didn’t you hear? Bush’s people paid him to run.”
