Behind the GIFs — Comic series that use animated GIFs as the punchlines to elaborate stories. Basically what I do here, but they do it better. (Link fixed. Thanks, allein)

    The Behind the GIFs link says Page Not Found.

    Will have to read about kitty physics later. Looks very interesting. 🙂

    Ok I read a few and they are funny, I bookmarked Behind the GIF for further reading but I think you’re being to modest NTMTOM.

    The cats look so pleased in their marble tubs, like their royal blood has finally been properly recognized. I hope we see Maru in one soon.

    I watched all the Behind the GIFS and they are good, but my review is that only #s 13, 24, 25, and 30 are up to Mike’s standard.

      The cat tub article is wonderful – the accessories! (little crown, laurel wreath…). And they made the base corrugated for cats to scratch – nice touch.

        And the tubs have claw feet!

    Great. I was terrible at physics in high school. Yet another reason for my cats to mock me. 😉

    Re Cats & gravity – wait, so all this time they were pushing stuff off the coffee table, they were doing experiments?!

      Cat A: Making sure the gravity is set at optimum frequency.

      Cat B: Other dimension detector at work.

      Cat C: Hairball Manufacturer.

      Cat D: Couldn’t care less.

      Add your own…

    Prepare to confuse the cat!

      Easy. Two laser pointers.

    Huh, bath holds up to 7 kilos. Wonder if Maru sneaks under the weight limit? Or not?

    Of Course cats understand gravity and physics — they don’t believe it applies to Them, but they Understand it completely. Ask Maru.
