To Be in Compliance

Sunday, February 3, 2008
According to Nathan, I am not in compliance with the required pet-posting regulations in the Blogosphere. As a result, I'm required to post two pictures of dogs in lieu of one cat.


Be careful what you wish for.

He was when the photograph was taken, but has since passed away.

Erm. Wasn't there a clause about cuteness somewhere? o.O

Janiece Murphy said...

MWT, I don't believe so.

Bwahahaha!

I'm losing track of the subsections and clauses and stuff, but somewhere, it says,

"The posting of said pictures shall satisfy the requirements of this law without regard to the attractiveness or lack thereof of the pet so pictured. It is not the intent of this law to have a bearing on what pet a particular blogger should possess, but rather to elicit feelings of envy, sympathy or even pity from the readers of said blogs."

In other words, the law doesn't care if the picture makes viewer go "Ooooooh" or "Ewwwwww".

"Well, the letter of the law is fulfilled by posting a picture of any cat, but the spirit of the law demands that it be a cute one."

Hah! I knew there was a cuteness clause somewhere.

You've got dog pics posted permanently in your sidebar. I should have thought that would have counted.

Though if you want to post pictures of naked mole rats, that's fine with me.

Is that what that top beastie is? I was thinking maybe a bat/xolo cross.

Janiece... you win. In my book, you have a permanent exemption from any further animal picture posting requirements!

Or, in other words -- Please. Don't. Stop. We'll pay you not to. ;)

The top pic is indeed a dog. An extremely ugly, sick, old dog.

I believe he was a Chinese Crested something or other.
