A farewell to balls

Booboo’s last meal. BEFORE THE CHOP. I take him in tomorrow before work but he has to fast starting now so he doesn’t chuck Friskies on the operating table.

If you’re thinking, “that boy has the most preposterous tail I’ve ever seen…” then, really, I have to wonder about your levels of empathy here.

Oh. Right. Empathy. Ric Fan did indeed win the Dead Pool with Harry Leslie Smith, days before GHW Bush joined the Hall of Presidents upstairs. That means New Dead Pool Friday.

Sorry I’ve been crap at communicating. This phone thing is getting me down. New computer due a week from today, if they don’t let me down.

Empathy? tail? You’re going to get them to chop off his tail!

That is the competence level of the medical profession in the UK these days, DurnedYankee. Surely you don’t expect their vets to be more capable than the NHS?

I wish to forfeit my win and spoted dick substitute to ExpressoBold. The passing of a former US president is much more noteworthy than that of a canuck socialist with a grifter son. Plus, I cheated. He was 95 and already in ICU.

Ric, take your dick and like it!

besides, GHWB, while being a noble WWII hero, ended up laying the ground work for RINO’ism. A country club Republican unwilling to do the heavy lifting needed to crush the Left.
I’m already tired of the 24/7 fawning on US media….

@Ric Fan et al:
Thank you for your kind deference to the passing of G.H.W. Bush but a team player like Pappy would want you to win since:
(1) Your win was completely overlooked last week due to communications problems, and
(2) Had we begun a new Celebrity Dead Pool on Friday it would have been a damn short pool and we would be right where we are today – looking at a new pool on Friday since I intended to select “41” again… or someone would have, for sure.
Dubya looked damn medicated to the gills, didnee?

empathy Psychol. and Aesthetics.


[tr. G. Einfühlung (see einfühlung) (T. Lipps Leitfaden d. Psychol. (1903) 187), ad. Gr. ἐµπάθεια.]

The power of projecting one’s personality into (and so fully comprehending) the object of contemplation.

You’d have to put a gun to my head to get me to project my personality into, and thus fully comprehend, Booboo, a poor Tom cat about to be de-Tommed.

Now, sympathy I got lots of.

Ehh, if all goes well with the excision, he’ll hardly know what hit him in a day or two. I look at these surgeries as Lost-Cat and Vet-Bill insurance.

I hope the shippers surprise you by delivering your new machine early, Stoaty. Mine arrived on Saturday, two days ahead of schedule. I still don’t quite know what to do with it. Too many cute new tricks added in the last six years, zero instructions in the box, and no time to futz with it. I await a thick book from Amazon, due for release two days before Christmas. Luckily, its predecessor still functions.

I would like to comment, but I’m busy planning on attending at least half of the upcoming funerals during the tour of our former globalist President who happily joined with the other big business globalists and passed his membership on to his son.

Their motto “We beat the living snot out of Iraq!”

I once liked both of these guys, and voted for both of em too.
Now I’m cruel, heartless and yes, evil. Yes, I am all those things.

Catnip — no instructions in the box, but there’s a good chance you can get a telephonic walk-through with their initial tech support.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
