Kitty!

I got to this from the Onion AV Club’s “videocracy” feature, which tracks the most popular videos on the intertubes.  This means that the odds of any of you not having already seen this are, to say the least, slim.  But I still want to link to it, just to express my intense enthusiasm… both for the clip itself, and for The Soup’s treatment of it.

“Art,” says Leonard Bernstein, ” … revives and readapts time and space, and the measure of its success is the extent to which it makes you an inhabitant of that world—the extent to which it invites you in and lets you breathe its strange, special air.”  So yeah.  For lack of a better word, I’d say this qualifies.

    I’m reminded of my favorite moment from The Muppet Show. Gonzo had a big hammer, and on the stage was a rock. Over and over again, he hit the rock with the hammer, screaming, “Art! Art! Art!”

    Of course, that bit would have been even better if a kitten had been involved.

    Maybe they were going for a subliminal message. The cat was black. The chair was white. The placemats were green. There was a pink bowl. The spaghetti had no sauce, as far as we can tell. So what does it all MEEEAAAANNN??!?!?!

    You blasphemers! How dare you promote the desecration of a FSM effigy as “art”?!
    The Pastafarians will have you for breakfast, and they’ll have The Soup for lunch!

    But I thought Pastafarians were all about keeping it real and not getting upset at others for what they say and do. Do you think FSM would approve of you claiming his followers would “eat” anyone “for breakfast” or “lunch” as you claim? I think not. You should be ashamed of yourself, you know. Are you a right-wing Pastafarian?
