Click bait that doesn't work because the player won't run.

Works for me.

Maybe your ancient computer needs to be replaced at long last...

Assuming he chose that tie and put it on, I would agree that there is not much that would bother him.

Too much important stuff doesn't work with a new computer.

I had to watch that twice because what he was saying was actually pretty interesting but the first time I didn't hear it

Cats like to climb Poles.

Very cute kitty.

However, the Polish historian and philosopher you want to listen to this week is Ryszard Legutko.

Curious George said...

Haha looks and acts like my dumb cat. Cats are like kids. They act up when they know you are preoccupied.

We know who wears the pants in that house.
I think the earwash would have gotten me.

One of my cats would climb to your shoulder if you picked her up, if she had to rip you open to do it. At the vet, she sat on top of my head.

He has the problem by the tail.

The ‘cat’ label has some fun posts. Vive le (la?) internet!

Yes, but the fact that people with the prowess of Tagalksi and Legutko are speaking up for the government and against the legacy deep state in Poland is instructive.

It also tells you what the EU attack on Poland is about.

Nothing beats that BBC interview of the South Korean expert and his children,

In Poland, pussy grabs you.

Some of y'all are bright-eyed and bushy-tailed this Monday morning.

Define "important."

@John

The tie backstory is disconcerting.

Mike said...

I have a small black cat that likes to leap (not climb, thank God) onto my shoulder and just lay across my neck. She waits on the kitchen counter for me to get coffee then jumps aboard. I like the tail action in this video. Cats are funny.

but treecats will be facing the other person and reading his mindlight.

Looking at it the fourth time, I think he might have a toupee. Our family cat was fascinated by wigs, real fur, and fluffy knit hats. He would lick them.

Ralph L said...

He must be giving his cats airtime in lieu of payment.

"when you are a Polish historian and political scientist, they let you do it"

(World Famous Lurker says....)

He's the spitting image of my 16 1/2 year old yellow tabby, Socks. Right down to the socks on his feet.

Socks is too old to do much climbing or jumping any more, but he still has no problem keeping 2 60lbs dogs in their place.

Rockeye said...

Good lord, but the snark is strong and of especially high quality today. I suppose that is what we get from an internet which is about 34% cat videos already

robother said...

Isn't there some brain virus cats infect mice (and cat-people) with that renders them captive? That cat is playing with the Polish economist as a way of tenderizing him.

It's said we're all captives of some defunct economist, but here is a living economist captive to a dangerous if diminutive predator.

Van Wallach said...

The PBS NewsHour would be vastly more compelling and socially relevant if large cats occasionally crawled over David Brooks and Mark Shields.

Good thing this cat wasn't in Atlanta. Instead of letting Stosh the Cat (or whatever its name is) hang out on his head, the guy might have kicked Stosh like a football.
