Teenagers and Cats - Not to be Confused With Teenaged Cats

Happy Hump Day.

The theme for today is ridiculous...and the slightly scary. 

Today's photos are all cats. Cats, cats, and more cats. And since I'm a dog person, that could be the scary part - but it isn't.  The text parts of this post are simple questions and answers supposedly given by teenagers. I can't swear these are all true but even if half of them are, I fear for our future.

Let's start off with a feline photo.

Hmm. That could almost qualify as scary.

Now some Q and A's.

Q. What is the fibula?
A. A small lie. 

Q. Name a major disease associated with cigarettes.
A. Premature death. 

Q. What are steroids?
A. Things for keeping carpets still on the stairs. 



Q. What happens to a boy when he reaches puberty?
A. He says goodbye to his boyhood and looks forward to his adultery. (So true) 

Q. What does 'varicose' mean?
A. Nearby. 

Q. What is a seizure?
A. A Roman Emperor. (You know, like Julius Seizure)

  Okay, this is definitely scary.

 Well, isn't it?

Q. Give the meaning of the term 'Caesarean section'.
A. The caesarean section is a district in Rome. 

Q. What guarantees may a mortgage company insist on?
A. If you are buying a house they will insist that you are well endowed.

Q. How is dew formed?
A. The sun shines down on the leaves and makes them perspire. 
And while we're on the subject of plants...

Definitely needed a bigger pot.

Okay, last three.

Q. What happens to your body as you age?
A. When you get old, so do your bowels and you get
Q. What is artificial insemination?
A. When the farmer does it to the bull instead of the cow.
Q. How can you delay milk turning sour?
A. Keep it in the cow. (Simple, but brilliant)

Whew. After those answers and contemplating our future, I think we need a good "aw".
Look at these eyes.

 Bet you said it.

And don't forget to check out DL Hammons' blogfest.

That's it for today. Hope it did the trick and you're over the midweek hump and sailing toward a fantastic weekend.

Did you have a favorite?

(In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that, based on my teenage grandchildren and most of their friends, I'm really quite optimistic about our future.)

See you next week.

Question for Today:
What should you do when you see an endangered animal eating an endangered plant?


Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Lots of laughs today. I love teenagers and most of them are great. They just don't know as much as they think they know.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Those are funny!
Cats are so bendy...

dolorah said...

Definitely needed a bigger pot, lol.

LD Masterson said...

Susan G/K - I agree on both counts.

Alex - Personally, I don't think they have any bones.

dolorah - Or several smaller ones. Who knew?

Murees Dupé said...

I really hope those weren't actual people's answers. But the cats are super cute! Have a great week.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I love the spare cat parts!

Mike Keyton said...

The 'blame the dog' picture is brilliant. Ref weird answers my favourite isn't here. It came from a history exam paper. 'In 1519 Ferdinan Magellan circumcised the world.'

LD Masterson said...

Murees - I hope so, too, but I wonder.

Diane - Actually, the picture said "spare cats", not "spare cat parts"...which makes your comment even scarier than the picture.

Mike - I love it.

Lexa Cain said...

OMG! Those were wonderful! I especially liked "steroids" and "varicose." So silly! I adored all the cat pics. "Spare cats"! LOL! Thanks so much for the laughs. :-D

Jemi Fraser said...

Those are hilarious! Apparently I've had 2 districts of Rome done to me???? :)

Emilyann Girdner said...

Haha! Julius Seizure... nice. And love the cat photos :)

Carol Kilgore said...

Loved everything!
Happy Weekend!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Lots of good laughs here, followed up by a super cool AWWWWW. (What pretty eyes that kitten has!)

As for the answer about "premature death," I think we almost always think it comes too soon...

Especially love the pics of the "spare cats" and the cats in the flower pot. Thanks for the smiles.

Happy weekend!

LD Masterson said...

Lexa - My pleasure. Glad you enjoyed them.

Jemi - I should have a witty response about when in Rome or Italian food cravings but it's just not happening. *grin*

Emilyann - Cat are just strange.

Carol - Thanks. You too.

Susan F.S. - You're welcome. Happy weekend to you, too. said...

Love all of them, especially the one about adultery. It's perfectly accurate and hilarious.

I thought a Caesarean section was the best part of a salad, but what do I know?

Have a great weekend, LD.

LD Masterson said...

Robyn - Better talk to Jemi ( 5 comments above yours) about that salad.

Cate Masters said...

I like to think those teens represent a minority. Otherwise I'd be afraid, very afraid...

Jennifer Lane said...

Thanks for the funnies! I particularly enjoyed the adultery (!) and fibula ones. :-) And ya can never get enough cats.

Maria Zannini said...

I wish I could bend like that cat. In other news, I've introduced Greg to yoga. We'll see how that pans out. :)

Millie Burns said...

Lots of silly fun. Thanks for the laughs : )

LD Masterson said...

Cate - Nah, I'm sure they're a minority. Aren't they?

Jennifer - Well, as I've said before, I'm a dog person so I'll have to take your word for it.

Maria - I want to see Greg bend like that cat. Lol.

Mille - My pleasure.

Am think we're missing something because our cats are old & like to sleep most of the time. Especially, when the heat vents call.
