We all know the feeling of what it’s like to watch the Grumpy Grammy Awards, or any awards show for that matter, only to watch someone win who really shouldn’t have. The most well know example of this is Kanye West drinking champagne and then jumping on stage to confront Taylor Swift and declare Beyonce as having one of the greatest videos of all time… OF ALL TIME! This has been discussed numerous times on this blog, most for the reason that it’s too damn funny. Now that I think about it, I’ll get into that more later. For now, we will talk about Prince presenting a Grammy and then visibly showing disgust. LoL Cat Research thinks this is fricken #pawesome
So as I said, Kanye has made the boldest move when it comes to beefing about his choice missing the nod. For that, we will shift out attention over to his heroics and away from the said Grumpy Grammy Awards. I don’t like autotune music or anything else Kanye does in the music biz for that matter, but I also admit that I haven’t listened to much of it. I do take note of the fact that he is one of the most famous people on the planet and that is great. Only thing is, I’m a God fearing religious phanatic and
I HATE ALL ILLUMINATI SELLOUTS.
If that’s you Kanye, you better hope Hell is not real cause if it is:
YOU ARE GOING!
Anyway, I think it’s pretty funny that if you google “Kanye Cat” you get a lot of funny pictures. It appears both Kanye and Kim Kardashian are cat people. I was going to post a whole bunch of pictures of them with cats, but I’ll save that for a future posting.
So I’m reduced to shamelessly trying to get traffic off of whatever’s clever. Right now it’s the modification of the kids’ game “Kill the Carrier” AKA American Football.
My favorite player in the NFL right now is the top cornerback who swatted away a pass to ensure the Seattle Seahawks would make it to the big game for the second consecutive year. His wife is due on the same day and I’m hoping he plays football instead of going to the hospital. Call it Superbowl Son Day… Get it? Nafsht.
Now let’s talk about what this picture refers to. Tom Brady complained after a loss that his footballs were slightly deflated and the media pounced on the opportunity to make ball jokes. LoL Cat Research is going the same thing right here! Giselle is one of the top models in the world and also one of the highest paid celebrities. She complained about her husband’s teammates after the NY Giants defeated the #brady & the New England Patriots in Superbowl XLVI. I’m from Brooklyn and my cousin Mikey Palms had his bachelor’s party during the Superbowl so I’m really glad the Patriots lost that day and the Giants won. Anyway, Because Giselle Bundchen is so incredibly famous and attractive, her complaints made instant news after the game, which is wrong. Why listen to her?
Tom Brady is one of the top quarterbacks in NFL history. That cannot be denied. He is a major trashtalker and dissed Richard Sherman — an underdog, round 5 draft pick who rose to superstardom with his high-energy defense. Sherman tipped-away a Brady pass that turned out to be the decisive play. Sherman confronted Brady saying “You Mad Bro?”
It doesn’t seem like a big deal, but the media made a thing out of it and so did Sherman. He sells tee shirts saying “You Mad Bro?” on his website: richardsherman25.com
Sherman explains in this video what transpired:
DisclaimErr: I’m obviously a Seattle fan. I lived there during the late 1990s and have fond memories of the place. I really miss living there… The place is magical. Many stars have called the place home: Jimi Hendrix, Bill Gates, and now Richard Sherman. It’s the final resting place for Kurt Cobain and Bruce Lee. IT’S THE PLACE TO BE!!!
Best Richard Sherman demotivational poster of all time– a masterpiece of cultural design.
Star Corner Back Richard Sherman of the Seattle Seahawks was asked in a press conference,
“Are you the best Corner Back in the NFL?”
The Ivy League-educated Pro Bowler responded,
“I don’t really answer preschool questions… Improve your questioning and maybe we can talk.”
This answer is fricken #pawesome and LoL Cat Research has enhanced this with this epic demotivational poster you see here to the left. Although this has almost nothing to do with cats, I couldn’t help but notice I had tons of fun making this so I think what I will do is make more! So stay tuned for more #meme pics and #demotivationals … also make sure you spread the word by emailing this and sharing it on social media. Here’s more on the background story:
Many assume that dogs can beat cats because they’re bigger. The opposite is true! Cats almost always win, often outsized, or even outnumbered, cats are still able to dominate. I put together a compilation of videos (all creative commons licensed so I don’t get sued by some insane dog owner) and I can’t even tell you how hard it was to find an instance where a dog beat a cat. See for yourself ＼(=^‥^)/’`
Lots of experts attempt to explain why cats are more popular than dogs online. Many will say in the Cats versus Dogs eternally epic battle, things like,
“… dog people are outside with their pets while cat people are indoors and therefore more likely to post about their cats while sitting in front of the computer…”
LoL Cat Research insight on cats vs dogs
My personal belief for the longest time was that google programmed their search algorithms to display results for cats when people were searching for porn — especially when parent filters were on. It makes sense when you think about it: Picture a random dirty old man finally learns how to use the internet and when nobody is around — he searches for “pussy”… Google gives him pussy cats — LoL!!! This was one of the reasons why I originally wanted to become a cat blogger: Cats get a shitload of traffic and traffic is what you need to make money. Still, everything mentioned this far is purely hypothetical. Let’s breakdown the real reason cats are more popular online:
Cat people outnumber dog people.
We all know there are just two sorts of individuals on the planet: cat people and dog people. Information from statistical surveying firm Euromonitor, recommend that these distinctions stretch out past individual inclination and to the domain of geopolitics: it so happens there are cat countries and dog countries, as well.
In the U.S.A., a greater number of families own puppies than own felines. Cool cats dwarf yippee-dippy-canines to the tune of about 4 million (so says the American Veterinary Medical Association’s evaluation). Why? One straightforward clarification is that felines are more minimal:
You can fit a greater number of kittens in a house than you can, say, pit bulls.
At the state level in the U.S.A., felines dwarf pooches in the Northeast and Upper Midwest. Mutts are the most loved in the South and Southwest. The most canine cordial state is Arkansas, where doggies dwarf the friendly felines 1.35-to-1. But who cares about Arkansas? If you ever saw the documentary, Bangin in Little Rock, you would know that those dogs are cray-cray. Bill Clinton was from there, but you don’t see him there now, you see him here in New York City.
On the other end of the spectrum stands Massachusetts with 1.87 felines for each canine. I guess Bean Town is feline town! When it comes to analyzing this kind of demographical data “A ton of that basically needs to do with populace thickness,” Jared koerten, a pet industry examiner at Euromonitor, said in a meeting. “Many cities simply aren’t that dog-accommodating.”
Worldwide, felines are the favored pet in the vast majority of Western Europe, except for Spain, Portugal and Ireland. South America is entirely puppy nation, as is much of Asia.
“A few districts, in the same way as the Middle East and piece of Africa, have an particularly long-standing energy about felines,” Koerten said. “in Latin America its the complete inverse. Pooches are a piece of family life there.”
March is Toxoplasmosis Awareness Month and Brazil is believed to have perhaps the highest infection rate in humans — a whopping 66% are believed to be infected. Toxoplasma Gondii is a parasite that gets into a mouses system when it feeds on cat turds.
The bacteria makes it way into the mouses brain, causing the mouse to become sexually aroused by the smell of cat urine.
It also dulls the mouse’s reflexes and causes it to become more reckless and make poor decisions — like the decision to find cats attractive!
This would all be great if T. Gondii only infected rodents. Unfortunately, any warmblooded mammal can become infected — including humans. The brain worms cause people to have an increased sex-drive while behaving erratically. One theory is that it can cause a person to take more chances while driving a car, which leads to more accidents, and subsequently more deaths.
Listen, this is supposed to be a funny blog — not a biology-based freakshow. For this reason, I went back to the past paragraph and inserted a gullible test. Did you catch it? OK, here it is:
March is NOT toxoplasmosis awareness month — I made that up!
The brain worm part is real and you can research that on your own. It’s disturbing, yet true that parasites can actually alter one’s thoughts and cause them to hallucinate or even commit suicide. Biologists joke that biology should be re-named, “parasitology,” since parasites outnumber free-living organisms by about four to one.
I just realized that humans could be seen as parasites in the eyes of other animals. Look at what we do with livestock. An animal is enslaved to work for us on the farm until the point that the point that they are slaughtered. How sad 🙁 that only until recently, we find out that other organisms do it to us!
It’s funny that toxoplasmosis would play very little roll in the cats versus dogs epic drama. It’s also surprising that Brazil isn’t more of cat country. Maybe the data is skewed or innacuate. Here’s an interesting video on Brazil and Toxoplasma Gandii:
Here’s even more info on toxoplasmosis.
Cat vs Dog info came mostly from spinning this article in the Washington Post.
