    Hope the entrant from Kittystan doesn’t get overheated running in that fur coat…

    Though maybe he’s just wearing it to throw the other runners off…I hear those Kittystanis are quite sneaky that way.

    His mousetache is almost as impressive as S. Dogli’s.

    The contestant from Kittystan is using performance enhancing drugs, look at his eyes, he’s on catnip-steroids for sure!

      Nonono, Gigi. He is intently focused on the prize.

    It’s Groucho “On Your” Marx.

      Murray wins the race for the Cute.

      • debg April 28, 2016 / 7:04 pm

        I think Murray wins the Internet for the day.

      You nailed it, Murray C. I was trying to decide whether it was Hitlerkitty or Grouchokitty.

    From the title, I thought it might be an encore performance by Ludevine (the hound who joined the human half-marathon) – I hope they’ll make her some sort of honorary marshall for next year.

    One of the best comment batches to date. I just love this site and the comments.

    This scroll down gave me a real belly laugh. And Kittystan of all places… Sort of like a replay of the Jamaican Bobsledding team.

    • Smartypants April 28, 2016 / 6:06 pm

      I think they share a border with Red Pandustan 😀

      • debg April 28, 2016 / 7:05 pm

        Hopefully they don’t all surrender to each other.

        Anyone remember the Maira Kalman New Yorker cover “New Yorkistan”? With such places as Schmatastan and Upper and Lower Kvetchnia?

        • Faye April 28, 2016 / 9:31 pm

          I come from the Lower East Side of Ashondastan. Eventually I made it to Mitzvahville by way of the New Maven Railroad.

            😘

            • Faye April 29, 2016 / 12:06 pm

              I had fun doin that.

    Kitler invaded Kittystan?

    • allein April 28, 2016 / 8:23 pm

      Thank you! I couldn’t think of a good Kitler joke.

      • Murray C. April 28, 2016 / 9:06 pm

        Yes, Jen8, you saved the day.

    • Faye April 28, 2016 / 9:33 pm

      Made me think of Monty Python routine about Mr. Hilter hiding out in England after WW2.
