It Must Be 4:20 Somewhere

Gentle readers, as our permissive society slides inexorably into the ignominy and infamyΒ of iniquity, we face a menace that persons of morals and fortitude can ignore no longer. I speak of the horrid herb, that pernicious plant, the weed with roots in h-e-double-hockey-sticks: catnip. This scourge of feline youth tears at the very draperies of polite society, and so on this day that is somehow significant, we present as a public service this training film so that you may be better informed and… Nip Catnip in the Bud!

    It’s the cat version of Reefer Madness, one of the worst movie ever made but so funny.

      “Reefer Catness”, anyone?

    “the very draperies of polite society”
    This part right here is where I had to work to not laugh out loud at work.

    My kitties don’t really react much to nip. They’re boring.

    • debg April 20, 2017 / 2:52 pm

      That’s a shame. My herd of 7 all love it and entertain me mightily when they nip.

    • Ricky's Mom April 20, 2017 / 7:40 pm

      The late Mookie and Mazzilli were immune to the joys of ‘nip. Fortunately they had many other things to find joy in, like bottle tops, pen tops, and each other.

    Only buy quality premium catnip,and here’s why.Grocery stores and the like poison catnip to prevent people from “abusing” it.I have used catnip as an herbal “remedy”,with results like chamomile with untainted batches.You can smoke it to gain a more potent result.When I tried Kroger brand catnip the physical hell the poisoned nip put me through was very,very bad.They saturate their catnip with something that is a horror,so please be careful with what you give your kitty.

      Yikes, that’s good to know – would it make sense to buy catnip seed (either a regular commercial brand or an heirloom/non-GMO type) and grow your own?

      It reminds me of the ‘tuna for cats’ that you find at the supermarket – it’s even stamped on the lid that it’s not for human consumption – I always think “If it’s that nasty, I wouldn’t feed it to my pet either!”

    Oh, the horror!! Clutches pearls, averts eyes and retires to the fainting couch with the vapors.

    I’m a war nerd and don’t do drugs, so first time I ran into 420 stuff today I was momentarily confused and concerned as to why people were celebrating Hitler’s birthday.

    • Smartypants April 20, 2017 / 5:32 pm

      LOL, I have a neighbor who’s a pot enthusiast from w-a-y back, and I recall last year he had never heard of the 420 meme either.

      And speaking of hitler, I got a grim chuckle this morning when IMDb listed him primarily as ‘Additional Crew’ on “Triumph of the Will”. Well, that’s one way to put it!

    My neighbor grows it in pots on her back patio. I’m really surprised that we don’t have a thousand feral cats hanging out around her condo.

    However, we do have a pair of Canada Geese that have been hanging around her patio every morning the past week or so. Either their nest is nearby, or they have developed a taste for catnip!!! πŸ™‚

    The cross eyed stoner at about 56 seconds made me rofl.
    And then the ad below for legalizing marijuana? I am ded from laughing.

    • Smartypants April 20, 2017 / 5:40 pm

      Hehe, yes, I’m getting an ad for “Snoop Dogg’s dank stocks”!

    • julie April 20, 2017 / 6:52 pm

      I just posted about an ad for a “discreet and odor proof way to store my stash”! The only stash I carry is made by Nabisco.

  9. Doug April 20, 2017 / 3:58 pm

    Parents .. Have you had ‘that’ talk with your little ones ..

    If not .. Do it quickly before they before stone(d) cold Nipheads

    …”tears at the very draperies of polite society”

    Best line of text I have read today. Thank you for brightening up my corner of the world.

    My cat loves the stuff and makes her way into the garden to partake from the plant I have there. it’s a perennial and grows happily just about anywhere. She almost destroyed it when I first put it in – her ministrations were a bit overwhelming for a small plant that hadn’t settled in yet.

  12. julie April 20, 2017 / 6:50 pm

    I think the weirdest thing about the ads on this site is that about 10% of the time, the ad will be related to the subject matter of the post, not sites that are related to my search history.

    Today, I saw an ad for a (I believe) marijuana holder? It was advertised as a “discreet” and “odor proof” way to store your stash.

    Mike – please be careful what you post! πŸ™‚ I’m worried about what other ads I might be seeing. πŸ™‚

    • Smartypants April 20, 2017 / 7:09 pm

      LOL – have you also been getting the clickbait ad the last few days, about “Meryl tying the knot again”? I think her current husband might have something to say about that! That one amuses me because it’s not offensive, just sort of random.

      Or that ad for some type of prostate remedy, where the fellow is grimacing and clutching his…shoulder? Gee, I know I took science a long time ago, but I just don’t think that’s correct!

    • Gigi the cat lady April 20, 2017 / 8:43 pm

      I didn’t get any of those adds or click bait, all I got was an add for some kind of computer storage, for a spinning top toy and for kitty litter.

  13. Ricky's Mom April 20, 2017 / 7:43 pm

    “on this day that is somehow significant” surely refers to my brother’s birthday. Right? (It’s not his fault …)

    • Smartypants April 20, 2017 / 9:34 pm

      Absolutely – happy birthday wishes to your brother!

    • Murray C April 20, 2017 / 9:56 pm

      It’s my husband’s birthday, too. I always say he’s the antidote to hitler.

        • Murray C April 20, 2017 / 10:02 pm

          Thanks, and happy birthday to Ricky’s Mom’s Brother!.

      • fkaWaldenPond April 20, 2017 / 10:32 pm

        Happy Birthday brother of RM and to hubby of Murray C.–Murry C. your hubby must be a wonderful, great guy to be married to you.. not to mention lucky! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰

        P.S. I voted up to this post solely for Mike’s commentary; but the cats are cute too.
