Thursday Funny! Cat burglar steals men’s socks and underwear

Most cats, if allowed to roam outdoors, bring home trophies like dead rats for their humans. One special cat even brings flowers for a kind woman in the neighborhood.

But Brigit, a cat in New Zealand, however, has a fondness for men’s underwear shorts and socks.

Selina Sykes reports for Express, March 21, 2016, that 6-year-old Brigit in Hamilton East, New Zealand, had stolen 11 pairs of men’s shorts and 50 socks, much to the embarrassment of her owner Sarah Nathan, who posted leaflets in the neighborhood apologizing for her cat’s theft.

Brigit became an internet sensation after red-faced Nathan posted a picture of Brigit’s haul on Facebook with a caption reading: “Now it’s getting silly. This is Brigit’s haul from the last two months. Every morning we wake up to more.” The post received received thousands of likes and hundreds of shares on Facebook.

Nathan asked anyone who thinks they’ve had their underwear stolen to come forward and reclaim them:

“It’s all men’s. It’s really, really weird. She’s [Brigit] got really specific taste. In our last house she’d bring home a bit of everything – she’d bring home men’s undies, women’s undies, togs, she even brought home a hockey shin pad and a jumper. She was much less discerning – now she’s decided menswear is the thing – and it’s a very specific kind of underpants that she likes. It’s an absolute obsession. A night does not go by without her bringing things home. I got up this morning and there were another four socks in the house.”

Luckily, Nathan believed the underwear to be all clean:

“They feel as if they’ve come off the washing line – they’ve got that crispy feeling. I’ve put notes in every letterbox in the street. Someone must be missing this stuff. Please share if you know someone who lives in the George St. area.”

Sunday Funny! Cat says ‘Well, hi!’ in a southern accent

An orange tabby cat named Gambino has taken the Internet by storm.

Gambino’s human(s) created an Instagram account for him: gambino_911.

On December 1, 2019, a video of Gambino saying “Well, hi!” in a Southern accent was posted to gambino_911, with 1,173,316 views as of this morning. 

The video was also posted to TikTok, where it has 1.8 million “likes”.

As you saw and heard for yourself, the video shows Bambino running into the kitchen. The cat’s owner followed and rounded a corner, taking Bambino by surprise.

In a decidedly non-cat voice, Bambino said: “Well, hi!”.

Street dog repeatedly kicked by passers-by whom he followed, hoping to be adopted

This is heart-breaking, but there is a happy ending!

Scribble was a tiny, forlorn little street dog — one of countless homeless dogs in Manenberg, South Africa.

Scribble would wander the streets of Manenberg, following passers-by to catch their attention, hoping that some kind human would adopt him. But no one would.

One day, Sidewalk Specials — a Capetown non-profit that rescues dogs from abusive situations and off euthanasia lists, but does not have a shelter —  found Scribble limping in the streets, and took him for a checkup at a veterinary clinic, Vet Point.

The vet discovered that little Scribble’s limp was from being repeatedly kicked.

Sidewalk Specials convinced Hill’s Nutrition and TV station SABC 3 to feature Scribble on the Expresso Morning Show.

Happily, a family in Johannesburg saw Scribble and fell in love with him.

So Scribble boarded a plane to Johannesburg and met his forever family.

Elephant visits her injured dog-buddy every day

St. Bonaventure called animals “creatures without sin”.

Time and time again, animals of different species would befriend each other.

One such pair, Tara the elephant and Bella the dog, lived in the Elephant Sanctuary in Hohenwald, Tennessee.

Tara and Bella were best friends.

But Bella injured her back and was confined indoors while she healed.

So Tara visited the dog every day for three weeks.

Sadly, Bella passed in 2011.

Rescue puppy became SPPD’s official ‘cuddles officer’ Sgt. Fuzz

Source: SPPD Facebook

In the bitter winter cold of St. Paul, Minnesota, police found a homeless mommy dog and her babies outside a farm.

The St. Paul Police Department (SPPD) kept one of the pups, who became their official cuddles officer, Sgt. Fuzz.

As reported by WCCO CBS4 Minnesota, 11-week-old Sgt. Fuzz has two very important jobs: He helps officers and crime-victims via cuddles, and serves as a community icebreaker.

Reserve Officer Kathryn Smith said: “Some of the things that officers have to deal with on a daily basis, he would just come in and give them attention and kind of get their mind off of it.”

Unlike K-9s or other working dogs that the SPPD brings to community events who should not be petted, Sgt. Fuzz is all about being petted.

Officer Armando Abla-Reyes said: “We want to reach more of our community, we love talking to our community, we want to meet more members of our community. And what better than to bring a nice, cute-looking dog like this to be able to help us do that.”  Officer Jean Barber said Sgt. Fuzz visited about 50 people who “all thanked me for bringing him down because some of them didn’t have a good day, so this brightened up their day.”

Sunday Funnies: How to pet-proof your Christmas tree

Wrap it in plastic.

Guard the tree with the Vacuum Monster.

Put the tree behind bars.

Denude the tree of ornaments or branches (although that kinda defeat the purpose of having a tree).

Hang the tree upside down from the ceiling.

Put the tree on top of or inside a piece of furniture.

Or banish the tree outside.

And my favorite: Use an abstraction of a Christmas tree and ornaments instead. LOL

Are you as smart as an African Grey Parrot?

You’ll be surprised by how you measure up. 😉

Parrots and crows are among the smartest of birds.

The African Grey Parrot (or just Grey parrot) is a medium-sized, predominantly grey, black-billed, red-tailed parrot, weighing 0.88 lb, with a length of around 13 in. and a wingspan of 18–20 in. A native of equatorial Africa, these parrots may live for 40–60 years in captivity, although their mean lifespan in the wild is shorter, about 23 years.

These parrots are one of the most popular avian pets, prized for these ability to mimic human speech. Grey parrots are also highly intelligent, as shown in experients:

  • Grey parrots perform at the cognitive level of a 4- to 6-year-old human child in some tasks.
  • The parrots can learn number sequences and can associate human voices with those humans’ faces.
  • Dr. Irene Pepperberg‘s work with Alex the parrot showed his ability to learn over 100 words, differentiating between objects, colors, materials, and shapes.
  • A recent study found that Grey parrots possess probabilistic reasoning, being able to make inferences about a sample based on information from a population. (Journal of Comparative Psychology)

Researchers have put African Grey Parrots through all kinds of intelligence tests. Baba Mail has one such test — a 12-question test that you’ll have to answer at least 10 of the questions correctly to outsmart African Grey Parrots.

Take this hint seriously:

Pay close attention to the photos in each question and try to memorize everything you see.

California Democrat Cenk Uygur wants to legalize bestiality

Californian politicians are a moral sewage.

Cenk Uygur, 49, is a “progressive” Turkish-American broadcaster, lawyer, columnist, journalist, activist, and the founder of The Young Turks, whose YouTube channel has 4.57 million subscribers. The Young Turks were instrumental in the election of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, with the help of the Soros-funded Justice Democrats that had also help elect Rashida Tlaib and Ayanna Pressley.

Uygur is currently running for the U.S. House of Representatives from the 25th district, to replace the disgraced Katie Hill. Hill resigned last month when nude photos of her and a female staffer were leaked, which led to the discovery that the Congresswoman had had sex with the female staffer and Hill’s husband, as well as with another male staffer, in violation of House Resolution 6.

See “California Congresswoman Katie Hill had sex with female and male staffers in violation of House Resolution 6

Alas, Uygur is no better.

Forbidden Knowledge TV unearthed a Young Turks video from 2013, in which Uygur tells his co-host, Ana Kasparian, that if he were the “benevolent dictator of the world”, he would legalize bestiality — sex with animals — as long as the animal was also “pleasured”.

Comparing bestiality to the minor crime of jaywalking, which is an infraction or a misdemeanor depending on the jurisdiction, Uygur said:

“bestality . . . yeah, it might technically be a crime, but let’s not waste the court’s time on jaywalking, you see what I mean? But here comes the controversial part I shouldn’t say: I believe that . . . if I were the ruler, the benevolent dictator of the world, I would legalize bestiality where you are giving, you’re pleasuring the animal, you see what I’m saying? Okay, okay . . . . [audience laughs] I’ll tell you why, I’ll tell you why . . . there was the case that we covered where there was, like, a guy or a girl or something that was pleasuring a horse, and the horse came to a conclusion. Right? So who got harmed?”

Co-host Kasparian points out that some people who were raped had an orgasm, so having an orgasm while being raped doesn’t mean that the victim wanted to be raped.

Uygur said: “Number one, you’re being an unbelievable downer. Number two, [in bestiality] they’re not both humans. Number three, I mean if you really ask the horse, ‘Did you mind?,’ the answer’s got to be ‘No’!”
