Anti-caturday post

Islands swarming with tens of millions of red crabs. Yellow crazy ants. Vicious arthropod battles for dominance. Cats are freakin’ boring.

    Damn Designer forgot to fix reproduction for the land crabs.

    But why think when you can just copy evolution? Because apparently we were Designed, only life somewhere else evolved and the lazy-ass Designer just redid that evolution over billions of years.

    Only sense I can make of ID, anyhow.

    Oh, and cat fights really aren’t boring, especially when it’s lions.

    Say, does anyone know why crabs foam at their mouth? I have wondered that since my parents expanded their business to include selling crabs.

    I got the “Chinese lady for dating” ad too. Creepy. Almost as creepy as the ants.

    I noticed the crabs moved forward, instead of scuttling sideways as I expected. Another evolutionary adaptation?

    A cat would down in scorn upon creatures that migrated in herds.

    What a weird video! That can’t be all of it?

    There must surely be more – would the viewer not be curious about what happens next to the crabs?

    And why not say where it is? I believe it may be the Indian Ocean island of Cocos, which is a part of Australia.

    We weren’t satisfied with polluting the poor mainland with feral pigs, dogs, cats, buffalo, goats, camels, foxes, cane toads, humans, etc, we had to make sure the outlying islands received some introduced pests as well.

    Chinese dating ad? How come I don’t get all these cool ads people talk about?
    Cats are boring? Obviously you’ve never played tennis with a cat, eh?

    Millions of marauding crabs eh? I think I’ll stick to my kitties for domestic entertainment, thanks :-)

    Cats are herded.

    “Crazy ants”?

    That’s not very nice. I’m sure the formids prefer ‘differently abled’.

    Cats…. The ‘other’ white meat!

    Cats are red meat, idiot.

    Never met a cat I liked.

    I think it is Christmas island.

    To combat the invasive ant species before ther crabs go extinct, I hereby suggest we design self-reproducing nanites that attack anything that looks like an ant. What if the program gets corrupted? ….Naaah! Technology will not misfire.
