From The Liberally Lean Email Bag

On my way to work this morning I saw the strangest looking cat on Business 287 at the 380 overpass. After I took a second glance at it I noticed it had something on its head. So, I turned around and parked near the cat and noticed that it’s head was stuck in a cat food can! Totally unaware of my presence, I captured a “Kodak Moment” and then went to the matter at hand…how to get the can off. Knowing that the can had to be on there tight, I knew that quick reactions were going to be needed. In one lightning fast move, I ripped the can off and that cat’s head popped out of there like a cap gun! All four legs went out in the air and when he landed, he looked up at me and shot out of there like a bullet. There is no telling how long he had been sitting there this cold morning but after he gets over his shock, he will probably be grateful for my efforts! (Thanks Bobby. And the cat presumably thanks you as well.)

That is so awful. Poor kitty!

Barry Green is a good (cat) Samaritan.

I guess you can call it "Canned Kitty"!

Trust me, he never realized I was even there until that can came off! Too funny!

Thanks Bobby and Barry. Most of us are so lucky that we don't have to search in trash cans in the cold like our poor animal friends.

That is such a wonderful thing to do! Most people wouldnt take time out of their busy lives to help an animal. God bless you Bobby and Merry Christmas!

Taking the can off of that cat's head is messing with the natural order of things.

Sir, you have just shallowed the kitty gene pool by helping that feline out of a situation that should have prevented it from reproducing other similiarly retarded cats.

I hope you're proud of yourself. Actions like yours should not be tolerated! Good day to you!

Bobby,
We realize that you were only trying to help but you understand that if this kitty's mom is offended because you removed the can. Barry might called on to be special proscuter again.

How nice of you. As a teacher I applaud your efforts. 7:45, 10:54,11:53: What an idiot you are. When I work with young people each day I try to be as patient as possible because when young people do or say innane things, I have to remember that people like you are parents who raise children and that is scary to me. No wonder our job is so difficult these days. We have to reteach and reprogram young people because of parents who can't parent and for citizens who can't exemplify proper behavior. Try an act of kindness sometimes, it would do you a world of good. Merry Christmas.

I think it would have been better to cut its head off, it would have been left in the can AND he never would have seen it coming.

That would be funny

1:09,

You must be a laugh-riot at parties.

"As a teacher, you sould try harder to develop a sense of humor, lest your students grow up to be unable to recognize facetiousness and dry humor."

Good day to you!

Actually Jarhead....
I am quite the social butterfly and I have a great sense of humor. But, my outlook on cruelty is a separate issue. You can tell that 3:03 has no clue. Bless his heart.

I would comment but I can't seem to stop laughing. Maybe I should quit smokin so much dope while I drink.

BUT....... True story, I think, there was a guy convicted for burying a litter of kittens heads up and mowin' em with the lawn mower. It seemed really creative.
