I wish I said this

My Spousal Unit isn't on Twitter. It is very unlikely she ever will be. But this evening, while talking about how useless Twitter seems to her, she came up with a near-perfect Tweet. Here it is:

"They don't hate us for our freedom. They hate us because we use our freedom to look up cat pictures."
(I'm not sure she's totally innocent on that score.)

HUNGER GAMES. Here's Krugman on the US House's cuts to the SNAP program, aka food stamps.

WHO'S ON WELFARE? Here's a look at the subsidies the average US taxpayer gives to big business.

THEY'RE NOT PRETTY ON THE GROUND EITHER. Here's a scary look at satellite images of factory farms.

She's wrong.

Cats are sacred in Islam.

Mohammed's cat's name was Muezza.

Legend has it that there was a call to prayer and Muezza was sleeping on the arm of Mohammed's robe, and he cut the arm off rather than disturb his sleeping kitty.

The reason that Alliewilson and other cats have an "M" on their forehead is for Muezza.

If he was alive today I feel sure that Mohammed would tell his followers to not make the trip to Mecca anymore, but to instead go to the Internet Cat Video Festival in Minnesota.
