CATpion Contest Round 3: Animal Cunning

Written by

We were delighted to find more demonstration of wit on the last caption contest’s round of comments. However, only one Columbian can be the wittiest of them all: with 45 up votes and one jealousy-inspired dislike, Anonymous #1’s “Tweets, by Dr. Jay.” Congratulations, Anonymous, you are indeed superior.

But we know you all can do better than that. There are endless layers of obscure references, cheap puns, and inappropriate interpretations to explore! We’ll just keep giving out the ambiguous animal pictures, and you can keep using this to procrastinate on your paper. Be clever!

Felines with podium

    i thought it said "animal cumming" at first

    ideas I was unable to articulate in joke form:

    - earning a PhD turns cats into humans, who attempt to retain a shred of felinity through use of cat prosthetics. it's extremely impolite to bring this up with unemployed PhDs, who can't get cat jobs because humans are, relatively speaking, terrible at catching mice.

    - when hamilton locks down for the night, the professors all turn into cats, who then attend secret midnight cat colloquia. this month's topic is "reading T.S. Eliot's "Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats" as modernist ethnography". they are running out of topics to discuss because there are fewer depictions of cats in literature than you would expect, and this Eliot one has been DONE TO DEATH, and new readings of these texts isn't adding anything to the field. no one in the department is willing to bring this up. academic politics are killing the liberal arts.

    - Susan Sarandon celebrated her 65th birthday last year by reading her unpublished memoirs to her collection of stuffed animals, all of which are cats. she stole the podium from a high school debate tournament, where she judged all of her rounds on the basis of which team had the cheaper shoes. she considers herself a crusader of the lower classes.

    And I therefore propose that we break into the Pentagon and flush all 760 toilets simultaneously thus wreaking havoc upon the american military complex and leaving their plumbing 'higgledy-piggledy.'

    Hoping to reach the house cat demographic, Mitt Romney retells the family dog story to the only crowd that will listen. (See: How Romney won the Maine caucuses)

    Fellow cats, it is true that I have been transformed into a human, but at the terrible cost of horribly disfiguring myself. While I may look somewhat human when facing you at this angle, I must warn you that the left half of my face looks more grotesque than the face of an anecephalic newborn.

    SALMON?!?!?!?! BUT I HARDLY KNOW YA!

    I know you've heard that the NYPD has been sending undercover humans to infiltrate feline organizations, and I'm just as offended as you are, but we shouldn't point fingers until we know all the facts.

  23. ...  

    writing and commenting on the internet is like lecturing to a room full of cats. expect nothing in response but hisses, growls and the occasional silent pitter-patter of tiny paws in tapping in agreement and disagreement.

    "...they think they can REPLACE US... they think they can save money by using DRAWINGS or by RECYCLING past images. you know where it will get them? NOWHERE. you know... i have a story for you, there are some kids that run a popular blog at columbia university, they floated three images out to their community to solicit funny captions. but you know what happened? not only were the images boring, the captions they received weren't funny either... it was just a giant waste of time that nobody really paid any attention to... friends, i can assure you, our jobs are safe... WE WILL NOT BE INTIMIDATED"
