Good Morning: Feb 21,2018

A quote for the day:

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.  The urge to save humanity is almost always only a false face for the urge to rule it.

– H.L. Mencken

That’s why I only deal with REAL hobgoblins on this blog, baby.

How about some fighting cats from Baroque-era Antwerp? Some things never change….


Frans Snyders was a wonderful Dutch painter of still lifes, mostly with lots n’ lots of dead animals all over them. And I’m guessing he was a cat lover, judging from the numbers of cats he depicts in his work.

All his animals look ANGRY, dead or alive. I guess that’s one way of getting drama out of a still life.

Those cats are probably just playing, tho.


I love this one… it’s like when Satan decided Cerberus needed a playmate and got another pet.

Now don’t scratch the couch, Mr. Tibbles, I’ll move you….OH MY GOD, HE’S GOT MY ARM, HELP HELP HELP NOT MY NECK OHGODITSTHEJUGULAR ARRGGGHHHHHH…..

Meh. Cat’s probably just playing.
