At the risk of neglecting other intrepid comedians in our midst, you two should tour. It would be purrfect.

Another stupid news item - the guy should not have had his gun loaded and just sitting around the house. He deserved to be shot! :-)

Poor lil darling Kitty, you can tell by the look on it's SWEEEET face, it was totally an accident.

However, there IS a difference between stray cats, like those Bob & Lizzie Dole have taken into their home, and the sad *tails* of those kitties who simply go astray.

Now this owner shootin' kitty never made the news because it was obviously done in self defense.
