It's Like A Visual "Drop"

Sometimes a concept is just so brilliant it's hard to wrap your brain around it. Introducing "Spaghetti Cat" who showed up on some television show this morning called The Morning Show With Mike and Juliet. Apparently they were having a serious discussion about underage drinking when the camera cut briefly to this cat in front of a plate of spaghetti. No one acknowledged it. No one so much as said anything about it. So what gives?
[A Mike and Juliet] spokesperson said, 'What you saw was our new bleep photo. When someone says something inappropriate we're going to use something like that. You're going to see a lot more of those in the future.'
Somebody over there deserves a raise. Genius. Credit
