Things that make me chuckle

Sunday, September 21, 2008

I just set up a new blog, so it naturally follows that I need to create my first post. Of course, it's past 1 a.m. and my mind's a total blank, but I can't just let the blog sit there so obviously empty. Staring blankly at the computer screen, I start clicking through my bookmarks and rediscover Cat Prin, the tailor for cats.

I don't know what it is about this site, but every time I visit it (and I do so more regularly than I care to admit), it literally makes me laugh out loud. I think it's the combination of the wide-eyed, mildly disturbed and frightened stare of the cat "models," the fact that there are, in fact, people that will market (and since the site has been around for a good five years now, apparently buy) a "frog transformation set" for their cats. And lets not forget the poorly translated, yet somehow endearing, promotional descriptions:

''All the cats that can be stylishly dressed well in the "CAT PRIN sailor color" which is the uniform of this school are suitable to the student of "the school of a sacred cat." If a sailor color is worn, a cat will disguise itself wisely!''
Rest assured I'm not a proponent of animal costuming or excessive consumerism, but I am a sucker for cuteness and cats.
