It's funny because on the surface we see Scott being outwitted by a dumb animal with no powers of higher reasoning, but then we realize he was also outsmarted by his cat.
Score one for Rick! Good job, buddy. You can do it. I mean you'll still die alone and all, but...
... aaaaaaand, we come full circle. Thanks, Scott!
It takes some comedic chops to turn the single word "No" into a completely effective punchline.
Boom! Way to go, last-word-having Ric.
Recently heard they did a study and found owning a cat actually reduces your happiness. Just wanted to share.
Nicely put, Steven desJardins
The thing I learned about sickly cats is this: listen for the wretch then let them barf in your hands. After you get over the barf reflex yourself, humans are much easier to wash cat sick off of than socks or particulalry carpets...
It's hard to share observations with cat people about having cats, because they've already missed the big one, viz. you're better off not having cats.
Of course Rick wins. Scott is dumber than a cat.
You didn't think anyone would notice the subtle pun between your socks and "de-feet," but we all did.
Maybe change what you're feeding your cat?
Cats seem to have a species-wide competition for barfing.Points for creativity, disgust factor, illusionism (HOW did he do THAT?!) level of difficulty, and the rare and startling quality (as related to barfing) elegance.One co-worker's daughter's cat climbed a six-foot pole to barf on the co-worker's favorite hat, which he had put up there to keep it safe.I had a white cat that could lay out a neat roll of snow-white hair in a pool of absolutely clear slime, with a single long blade of grass - unchewed - how did she swallow it? - balanced across the hair roll...I'm not sure why they do this, but they all compete.
