Westminster Dog Show to Include Cats This Year

Westminster Dog Show to Include Cats This Year:  The New York Times is reporting that cats will be joining the prestigious Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show this year for the first time in its 140-year history.  Personally, I would’ve gone with ponies instead of cats - that way, it could’ve been a “dog and pony show.”  But gee, there’s just so much love in the world.  Makes you wonder why the Patriots and Falcons don’t allow the Red Sox to join them in the Super Bowl?  I mean, why limit the thing to two football teams?


Stroke Victim Loses Ability to Feel Sadness:  A 68-year-old British man who suffered a stroke in the emotion-controlling frontal lobe of his brain in 2004, discovered that he had completely lost the ability to feel sadness or depression of any kind.  Gee, I’ll bet this guy must be an absolute riot at funerals.


Humans Evolved From Tiny Sea Creature With No Anus:  In a study published in Nature, scientists say the earliest known ancestor of humans was a sea creature a millimeter in size that most likely lacked an anus.  No doubt even Darwin would be impressed to think we’ve come all the way from a sea creature with no anus - to Kim Kardashian.

I can just see it. To be read in an unctuous voice:

”The Persian Cat is one of the older breeds, thought to originate from a cross between Tibetan Mastiffs and the Babylonian Ocelot. There were very few dogs in Persia, so these cats were used as drovers to take herds of goats to market. They are no longer used for that purpose but are now highly desired House pets that are particularly skilled at annoying dogs and shredding furniture. This is Persian Cat #62."

The cats will actually be at the bench show, where people can see the dogs up close, but they will not be in the ring.

Have you ever watched Westminster on television (or in person)? If you haven't, what I just wrote will make very little sense.

I've seen clips of it, but I've also been to numerous cat and dog shows - which I assume are similar. In addition, I say "Best in Show" which was hilarious.

I hate when that happens!

This announcer is the guy I'm imitating. He doesn't get to "drover" until Greater Swiss Mountain Dog. That's unusual.
