The popular quantum physics thought experiment, Schrodinger’s Cat, goes thusly: Schrodinger would lock himself in a room with his cat, then pick it up and scream the theme from Magnum P.I. into his face (using only the word “kitty” of course). Now, until someone opened the door and observed Schrodinger’s face, it existed in both clawed off and not-clawed off but let’s face it probably clawed off states simultaneously.
Sharksploders: You do weird shit to your cats, right? C’mon. Of course you do.
I would sing the Tom Jones song What’s new pussycat to my cat.
I do this. Often.
See, I don’t watch enough TV to have that experience, I need to do my kitty songs free-form. No restraints, no limits to the number of times I can proclaim kitty. It’s like kitty-jazz or something.
When TV theme songs are instrumental, I just make up words that have to do with the show’s theme.
Buffy, she’s the slayer
She fights vampires
And sometimes kisses them
She has friendddddds
That help her ouuuuut
(Buffy is the Vampire Slayer)
This is important and you should be devoting all of your time to this endeavor.
I was thinking of writing a musical version of aliens with hits like bleep goes the motion tracker oh god its inside me/kill me and game over man game over
Never mind what I said earlier. All of our resources must be diverted to this task.
featuring “They mostly come out at night (mostly)”- Bel Biv Davoe ft. Björk, and “Why didn’t you warn them, Burke?” – Mudhoney ft. Sir Mix Alot
Oh and colony girls want to be deflowered, you allways was an asshole gorman and there coming out the walls/and my chest
Cats are weird, and untrustworthy. though if i had one i suspect i would harass the crap out of them. keep up the non-sequitur work!
If we had a cat, my husband would totally do this. Since we don’t, I just get serenaded with which ever show we are currently watching. Except Game of Thrones, then I get South Park’s version.
I don’t use “Kitty” I use “Meow”…it works really well with the Archer theme.
Meow is definitely the way to go.
My wife and I sing theme songs replacing the words (or notes) with “Meow,” to each other, mostly ignoring the cats.
Seems I’m really missing out on this “meow” song trend. I need to get with it. #meowssingout
Meow themes really are the way to go. I recommend meowing out the theme to SToS or Jurrasic Park for first time meow themers. TRUST ME.
Rather, ST:TOS (stupid fingers messing things up)
Sometimes I do this with “Kay-lee” (my dog’s name), rather than “kit-ty”, but same idea.
Mostly, our cats do weird stuff to US, and we let them (sleep with their faces pushed into ours, lick our chins to wake us up, use us as furniture…)
I focus on the shows when I watch TV–mainly because no cats are bothering me–but I do play with them on the couch using only my food and a blanket whenever I can
Whoops, I meant to say “foot”
I sing to my cats, but usually just whatever music I’m listening to, karaoke-style (kitty-oke? or is that going too far?). My boyfriend is the one who makes up new lyrics to songs so they’re about cats. (If you have a pet whose name has the stress on the first syllable, “Fergalicious” works really well.) Although, he’s just big on parody in general – his and his best friend’s “Grills” parody is a masterpiece.
My dad used to do that for my brother and I when we were little, too – we were raised on Weird Al, so I remember finding it odd the first time I met someone whose family didn’t do that.
I think this is the first time we’ve seen you draw yourself truly as yourself.
I never wanted to mess with the character models for HE too drastically and I never gave comic Joel glasses or earrings since I would have to draw them all the time. Since I’ll only appear every once in a while in these comics, I don’t mind being more accurate. He’s still about 20 lbs lighter than I am.
I wouldnt worry, if webcomic artists had to draw themselves as they actually look, the panels would consist mostly of t-shirts with ironic prints trying to poorly cover a hairy beer gut
I…Actually do this to my daughter. Why does that make me feel weirder than if I did it to the cat?
Honestly, I think the weirdest thing I ever did with my cat (when I had one) was when I’d be lying on the couch and he’d lie on the floor directly beneath me, and sometimes I’d reach down and hold one of his forepaws in my hand. He’d allow that for a few minutes and then gently pull it away.spl
I sing “Everything Is Milo” to the tune of “Everything Is Awesome” from the Lego Movie to my cat Milo. He starts meowing at me when I do, which I take as encouragement even though it’s quite obvious they are pitiful cries begging me to stop.
Let me try:
“Everything is Tivoooooo! Everything is cool when you’re a fat lump of shit.”
Yeah, it works for every cat.
See? Fun for the whole family.
Randall Munroe explained this phenomenon here:
Do you still sing if Kitty is not in the room?
His math checks out. Completely unrelated, one time Randall and I were on a cruise ship and we got drunk and he drew me riding a meteor into Russia.
I used to sing the Hogan’s Heroes theme to my dog using “dumb”.
Hold on to your hats… WE GOT SOME CATS ON FIRE!
