A Cat for Christmas. Also, Man Boobz TABLE OF MISANDRY Art Contest WINNER!

Bananananana!
Bananananana!

Merry Christmas, if you celebrate it! And a very happy day in late December, if you don’t! Whatever your religious beliefs, or lack therof, I think you will appreciate this gif of a cat enjoying a traditional Christmas banana.

Also, I’d like to announce the winner of the MAN BOOBZ SLIGHTLY BEFORE CHRISTMAS ART CONTEST. It’s Myoo, for this take on the Table of Academic Misandry described by A Voice for Men’s Paul Elam in a recent post. You know, the one that has legs made up of “rape hysteria, demonization of men, fraudulent academic feminism and the continual erosion of due process for men and other Constitutional principles.”

I think this pretty much nails it, though I do feel obliged to point out that technically that is not an octopus.

Thanks to everyone who submitted pics! You can find more in the comments of the original thread.

Well to be fair Elam, did list 5 things that were a supposed four-legged table so perhaps the artist was making a commentary on that?

And anyway counting is misandry.

The cat looks like a Muppet. It’s hypnotic.

Also, “tetrapus” is fun to say.

I actually considered adding the remaining legs, but I decided to leave it with just four to make the label completely absurd.

It might still be an octopus. It’s just had a couple of accidents and it’s a little sensitive about it, so it hides the stumps.

Don’t worry, octopus. I’d give you a hug, but I’m a little concerned that I’d get one back.

Hey hellkell!! TO is good considering. There’re still a couple thousand (possibly tens of thousands) people without power, but compared to the original three hundred thousand it seems like amazing news. The city looks fuckin gorgeous though, but I always feel guilty thinking that.

How’re you guys doing out there? Hope you and Mr HK are having a good christmas. I love your neon pink tree BTW. As soon as I saw it I burst out laughing because it just screams…. you 😛

A commenter at AVfM has discovered our plans for a feminist version of Christmas:

In other news, Christmas is to replaced by the Politically Correct institution of “Femmas”. In Femmas, every little girl will receive all the presents she wished for, no matter how she behaved over the past year. Every little boy, OTOH, will be given a bottle of ritalin, required to sit quietly and spend the day reflecting on all his male privileges. The white male cis-gender potential-rapist-pedophile character of Santa Claus will be killed off, and replaced with gender- and racially-neutral rainbow unicorn. The Christmas tree, an ever-present phallic symbol of the Patriarchy, will be replaced by a simple bush.

Also during Femmas, all women will be given the day off, while all men will be required to attend work. But they will not receive overtime or holiday pay, as this would widen the wage gap.

The rainbow unicorn sounds pretty cool, actually.

The Christmas tree, an ever-present phallic symbol of the Patriarchy,

No. NO NO NO. No conical phalluses. No phallic conifers. NO!

Jeeze these MGTOW rejects are forever moaning about some darn thing plus their imaginations just completely run away with them. It’s all doom and bloody gloom. You’d think they’d be elated to be single and doing their own thing with not a female within sniffing distance of their run down bedsit lol. But noooooooooo. Whinge, whinge, whinge, moan moan moan. It just cannot be healthy to hate women with such a vengeance. They are heart attacks just waiting to happen. Chill guys. Calm down and enjoy your life. Let it gooooo!

Congrats Myoo!

cloudiah – Agreed. What’s wrong with rainbow unicorns?

Octopus hugs would be sticky, but shouldn’t hurt. They just have suction cups, not spiked ones (squid suction cups have spikey bits, the nautilus lacks suction cups entirely)

Just don’t hug a blue ringed sea beastie!

In other things, I’m wearing a fez and bow tie, gift from my brother.

Me finding AVFM’s terrible sense of humor funny is as likely as me becoming an MRA.

Congrats, Myoo!

Ha, Shadow, did you see what Biscuit did to the neon Christmas tree?

2-D man – hmm, the other day we rescued a huntsman who’d had some accidents along the way. Zie had five legs.

I wasn’t offering any hugs, though.

Argenti – way cool, but you’ll be out of date in 5 … 4 … 3 …

That’s if you got the Christmas/Regeneration special on Christmas, of course. We’ll only be seeing it tonight, ie. Boxing Day.

kittehs – OH SHIT THE DOCTOR WHO REGENERATION SPECIAL’S TONIGHT.

Don’t spoil it! I’m still watching episodes with the 9th Doctor!

kittehserf

I won’t!

I hardly saw any of the 9th Doctor’s series; I only remember the one where he’s back in time in the church with Rose.

Oooh, speaking of TV, I’ve finally seen the first couple of eps of Endeavour. (Any Morse/Lewis fans awake?) I was dubious about it when it came out, ‘cos they didn’t bother to mention here that it was created by Russell Lewis, who wrote some of the previous shows. Plus it was on commercial television, and I just can’t be stuffed dealing with commercials. Got the DVD the other day and I love it – Fred Thursday’s my favourite character, but I really like the way the actors playing Morse, Max and Strange have the voices and speech patterns right.

Alice Sanguinaria

My friends have been telling me to watch ALL of the episodes starting from 9 and moving up. So I’ve been obeying, even if I’m often running out of the house.

i usually can’t stand TV shows, for the most part. The vast majority of sitcoms on television either are extremely painful to watch and/or extremely sexist/homophobic/racist/whatever.

kittehserf

Yeah, I haven’t watched sitcoms for decades – I don’t think things like Hamish MacBeth or Oliver’s Travels count as sitcoms, do they? Mostly Mum and I watch English police dramas, though I try to avoid the string of shows that seem to revolve around gory murders of women by serial killer/disintegrating personal life of screwed-up protagonist (Wire in the Blood, Prime Suspect, Silent Witness, Luther, etc, etc, etc). That’s one reason I like Midsomer – you know the likely victims in advance ‘cos they’re almost always horrible types, and the whole thing is too bizarre to take seriously.

Real estate agents in Midsomer must makea fortune. There’s a constant supply of fancy houses – sorry, cottages – on the market.
