Riddle Me This....

If I want to change some function on the cable box, DVD or tee vee with the remote, I have to aim with the skill of a seasoned marksman.

If the cat casually steps on the remote as it lies on the sofa, suddenly I'm watching Armenian game shows.

As the kids like to say, what's up with that?

Dude, you get Armenian game shows? Cool.

Yeah, I think the one I saw was called "Wheel of Goats" or something.

You know, I would sleep with one eye on that cat from now on if I were you.

A cat that has the skill of a seasoned marksman is pretty scary.

I have always maintained that cats have interdimensional aspects; that Schroedinger was not speaking metaphorically, but of an actual experiment.

So when the cat steps on the remote, what you are seeing is the beam travel by all possible routes to the TV. At least one of those routes always works.

For us, we are limited to only our normal dimensions, so aim comes into play.

If you've ever seen a cat emerge from a room where a moment before, he simply wasn't, then you know what I mean. It's a little creepy, but it's not something the cat does intentionally. He just works in space/time a little differently than we do. He's still the same cat, despite his rather odd relationship to reality.

My favorite is "Make Me Ululate".

Are you sure it wasn't Noses of Shame?

It could have been old episodes of "Name that Uni-Brow"

You made me laugh until I hadda reach for the Poise Pads.

And that goes for your little commenters, too!
