26 February 2009 — The Lovecats

“You know what?” I told Kris last night as we were getting ready for bed. “I finally have an idea for a long foldedspace post. Like in the olden days.”

“Ha!” she said. She didn’t believe me.

“It’s a story from when we were boys,” I said. “But there are a lot of different threads to tie together. It’s going to take some time.”

This isn’t that post. This post ties together threads of a different sort: YouTube, LOLcats, the music of my youth. Here, my friends, is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Some of you will laugh (Will K.?), some of you will cry. But most of you will just scratch your heads in bewilderment:

So funny it hurts!

I suppose some context would help many of you. “The Lovecats” is a 25-year-old song from The Cure. It’s a song I loved when I was in high school and college (and even today). And, of course, LOLcats are those (mostly) funny captioned cat photos. This video combines the two.

I loved Lovecats and I like LOL Cats - the combo ain’t so appetizing for me.

Perhaps you should preface by asking:

Are you a geek?
Do you like the Three Stooges?
Then you’ll love this. Otherwise, not so much.

Oh that’s horrible. But I’m laughing. In a “oh that’s horrible” kind of way.

Aristotle. Cat-harsis.

I couldn’t make it through it . . .

Ummmm… OK. That was rather lame. It would have been better with the real Cure song instead of that shrill noise pollution.

Steph says, “That was dreadful.” But at least the kids were cracking up…

I laughed, in the ‘oh that’s horrible’ also. It needs more cowbell.

We do not share the same sense of humor.

Ditto Lauren’s comment.

Sorry JD… you are on your own with that one. I’ll have to stick to Viking Kittens (http://www.vikingkittens.com/) for cat + song related amusement.

Tiff is on the right track, but the only way this works at all is if it’s ALL cowbell. And no video.

JD, I am groaning but the boys made me play it twice . . . aaarghhh!!!


On 28 February 2009 (9:36 pm), J.D. said:

Sigh. From what Jeff and Kristin report, it seems that I have the sense of humor of an eight-year-old…

Well, I laughed, so I’m with you J.D. But then again I’ve had a stressful week so maybe my normally very erudite sense of humor has taken a temporary slip. Lydia liked it too and she’s 11.
