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.

Yes kitteh. I watched a couple of episodes when it was on. Not sure whether it conflicted with one of mr’s favourites or … was it on very late? Either way, I missed most.

But I liked it.

All hail the tetrapus of misandry!

‘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.’

Does he still believe that Christmas presents are actually performance related?

My cats are very intrigued by bananas, and always want to inspect them whenever I have one. But they immediately rear back with that universal grimace of disgust whenever they smell one. Makes me laugh every time. I can’t imagine mine actually eating one, the smell revolts them so much.

My cat Sophie is enamored with carrots. She’s never eaten one in her life, but if I have a bag of carrots in the fridge, she literally climbs in there to rub all over it. It’s gotta be the smell.

My dog was fascinated with pumpkins. When I carved the Hallowe’en pumpkin one year, she dashed by and snatched the bits I cut out. She took them to a corner where she thought she was hidden, but I could totally see her. lol But then…she wouldn’t eat them. She would chew and lick them, and then just leave them and snatch another.

The rainbow unicorn sounds pretty cool, actually.

Rainbow unicorns are pretty cool indeed:

This video is lovely and I have no idea the age. Makes you see the similarities. Wonder how this would work for canines.

Kitteh — you watch Torchwood? I will never adjust to the new Doctor, not after his role on Torchwood: Children of Earth.

The special does tie up a bunch of the annoying loose ends from 11s seasons though, so there’s that.

@Argenti: the Doctor was on Torchwood: CoE? I stopped watching before then, because I hated it.

The special was pretty nice. Me and the mister liked it a lot.

@ Alex, that’s funny, because my dog is TERRIFIED of pumpkins. This past October, I tried so hard to get a pic of her next to a pumpkin because I thought it would be adorable, but NOPE. She was not having it. Every time I brought the pumpkin even remotely close, she ran away. I didn’t have the heart to try to force it since clearly, for her, something was definitely wrong with that pumpkin, but I couldn’t help laughing. She’s such a big, monstrous looking dog and is so afraid of so many little things.

That table is a lot like the table I had in my mind but wouldn’t know how to begin to draw.

Much admiration, Myoo!

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

The Barnabys must take advantage of that regular-like. There’s one episode where they’re explicitly house-hunting, and Tom is resisting moving out to one of the villages because that’s where he does all his work, seems like.

But then a couple seasons later they’re living in a different house with no word.

I gave my little boy a small piece of pineapple over the holiday and he pulled this epic yuck-face. Then he swallowed it and ate all the rest of the pieces I gave him.

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.

This. I prefer comedies for various reasons, but whenever I ask for recommendations people suggest shit like “How I Met Your Mother” and “Big Bang Theory”, both of which have at least one seriously creepy dude whose creepiness is played for comedy. And don’t even get me started on the Indian character on BBT. When I do find something that’s funny and not too *ist, I end up watching it a million times because anything new might turn out to be terrible or offensive..

It doesn’t help that I HATE the faux-documentary-style shows like The Office and Parks & Rec. “Painful to watch” pretty much sums it up.

@Auggz, I think the “little boy” in Falconer’s comment is human. But I once had a cat who loved apples (we didn’t give them to him, but he’d lick them if we set them down)

The wrapping paper’s the best part of Christmas, except for the ribbons.

@emilygoddess Holy Shit I do not understand the love for BBT.

1. A laugh track. Cause if they didn’t tell you when to laugh you wouldn’t know they just did something funny.

2. Yay stereotypes. Hardcore. Maybe they get better in time, but at first they traded on gender and intelligence stereotypes as if that was the only source of humor.

3. Being fairly standard but being lauded as amazing for…I don’t know.

I just don’t bring it up as I don’t want to annoy my friends.

I wanted to like How I Met Your Mother because I kinda fell in love with Jason Segal after he did The Muppets. Because seriously, MUPPETS, YO. Do I need to say more? But yeah, the creepy dude character really made that sitcom hard to like. Plus the fact that at one point I think half the characters own two homes apiece I was like…. yeah, I can’t really relate to someone who owns not one, but TWO friggin’ houses in Manhattan and is STILL freaking whining that he can’t find THE ONE.

BBT I also wanted to like a lot, but in addition to the creepy dude character, I got irked at the continual “yo, momma” joke that was creepy dude’s mom. Fat lady gets no actual airtime, just is a disembodied voice? Yeah, does not sit well with me.

Literally my thoughts when I hear the laugh track on that show.

Yeah, the new Doctor wasn’t a particularly, well, Doctor like character either (I’m being kind cuz spoiler, but less kind version? I hated him, that character was basically everything the Doctor is against, it’s going to take some time to get used to his face being the Doctor)

Also, AWW FALCONER’S TWINS!!

Argenti – no, never watched Torchwood. I’m not even sure when it played here, it was prolly on ABC2 and I never think to look at their listings. But anyways, I’m not so keen on the new Dr Who that I’d bother with an offshoot, though I might have looked at the Sarah Jane series if they’d bothered airing it here.

So Peter Capaldi doesn’t have any other Dr Who associations for me. I think of him primarily as Lord Fellamar in The History of Tom Jones, and a one-episode role he had in Foyle’s War.

I loved Matt Smith’s farewell speech – nicely done so it was his, as well as Eleven’s.

Plus Twelve/Thirteen’s opening lines. 🙂

They must be cross-breeds, Falconer, I can definitely see hair there.

Gorgeous Christmas pic, btw!

Fribbie’s the same! She gets all keen when I’m eating a banana, but the minute I let her sniff it, her face crumples up into an OMG YOU WANT TO POISON ME look.

I wish I got some misandric underwear for Christmas. Oh well.
