    That was hilarious!

    I’m helpless with laughter again.

    Cat is totally shocked. Dog must be set too high. I hate when that happens.

    Best laff I’ve had in a while. Somebody needs to dub in some cartoon sound efx. Or just play them in your head.

    I love the look on the cat’s face. “Oh crap. What did I do?”
    Love the zoomies.

  6. Dana October 16, 2017 / 4:46 pm

    Was not expecting that. I love how perplexed the cat is.

  7. Laura October 16, 2017 / 5:16 pm

    I love it! The cat’s expression is just like people when they see our sillt greyhound suddenly go from a dead stop to foll speed. Petfect! Poor kitty, it’s got no clue what set the pup off!

      I counted 7.

      • Ricky's Mom October 16, 2017 / 9:18 pm

        Picky, picky, picky … 🙂

    I was half expecting poor kitty to get bowled down the stairs!

  10. Alice Shortcake October 16, 2017 / 5:45 pm

    All it needs is “Yakkety Sax” or “The Flight of the Bumble Bee” playing in the background.

    • Smartypants October 16, 2017 / 7:33 pm

      Oh, or perhaps “Don’t Stop Me Now” by Queen!

  11. Murray C October 16, 2017 / 6:37 pm

    Yup, that’s a belly-buster alright.

  12. Amyliz October 16, 2017 / 8:15 pm

    Too funny! Such a perplexed kitty and a high-speed doggo!

  13. Caz October 16, 2017 / 8:34 pm

    Yay! Been harvesting our butternut squash and my back hurts, but wine and seeing my submission has been posted helps! I knew it had to be shared here the moment i saw it 🙂

    I have never seen such a confused cat, i just love this 🙂

    • Murray C October 16, 2017 / 8:54 pm

      Wow, Caz, you must have a LOT of butternut squash! I had a volunteer that came up in August and got four squash – the fifth one rotted – but they weigh an average 6 lbs. each. I never saw such big squash! I thought maybe they were goose neck gourds but apparently not. Do yours get that big? I’m wondering what they’ll taste like.

      Good find on this video!

      • Caz October 16, 2017 / 9:15 pm

        6lb!? Wow! What kind of ground did you plant them on? We are all clay soil, i’d love to grow some as big as yours! Ours are just average size, some tiny, some good size, but none that big, i harvested over 100 today, looks like it’s going to be squash dinners all winter! 🙂

        • Murray C October 16, 2017 / 9:37 pm

          We have a sort of flattened out compost pile next to three composters – we don’t really put anything on it anymore, mostly use the containers. But the squirrels plant things there after we’ve left the seeds out for them and every once in a while we get a bumper crop. I got five good-sized pumpkins one year and a lot of grape and cherry tomatoes. WE don’t have much sun so I don’t make growing food a priority but it’s fun to see what the squirrels come up with. One year I found a little plant with pretty yellow flowers on it and let it grow the entire summer. When I dug it up it was laden with peanuts!

          • Caz October 16, 2017 / 10:05 pm

            Peanut flower!! How awesome! The squirrels on our property come and go, we know if there are a lot of squirrels around by the amount of walnuts there are on the pesky black walnut trees.

            • fkaWaldenPond October 16, 2017 / 10:40 pm

              Pesky for sure! I will be all brisk tra-la-law-la-law on my walk and then suddenly black-walnut-braining-pelt-death-from-above!! Holy smokes, or when a car drives over one just as they pass me it sounds like gun-pops. I am supposed to be alleviating high blood pressure through exercise, not adding to it.

              I wish I had a garden Caz and Murray C. so in the meantime I will happily read about your crops. 🙂

              • Murray C October 17, 2017 / 11:12 am

                Have you tried container planting? I did more of that this year in anticipation of downsizing – which could take years – but I don’t want to commit too much more to the garden itself since I have to leave it all behind – so I planted some large pots. I didn’t do veggies but I know you can – and I have done cherry tomatoes quite successfully in a pot before. I bring some of my bigger plants indoors to the basement under a work light and then put them out in the spring.

                • fkaWaldenPond October 17, 2017 / 9:42 pm

                  Yes, I did that at my last abode unfortunately it is not feasible where I live now– 17th floor, north east corner facing balcony, wind and a tonne of massive spiders who call my balcony home. The view from inside is lovely though! 🙂

          • Blue Footed Booby October 17, 2017 / 12:38 pm

            I love seeing what random plants grow in the back yard I never mow!

            Once the scrub killed all the grass, it was mostly covered by beautiful flowers that come back a different shade of purple every year, interspersed with a weed that looks kinda like baby’s breath.

    Vertical Video causes butterfly extinction.

    If NTMTOM isn’t going to continue the project he started, we’ll have to do it for him.

    Mine is probably too grim, is the problem. I don’t have NTMTOM’s touch, his instinct. Try again:

    Vertical Video causes bad breath.

    Or did he use that one already? We need to keep an updated list.

    • Smartypants October 17, 2017 / 7:43 am

      Hehe – yes, he’s used the ‘bad breath’ one. How about “Vertical video causes smelly armpits”?

      • fkaWaldenPond October 17, 2017 / 7:46 am

        ‘Vertical video causes gingivitis.’

  15. Faye October 17, 2017 / 9:17 am

    Vertical video causes hiccups!

    • Murray C October 17, 2017 / 11:13 am

      Vertical video causes vainglorious vapidity.

      • Faye October 17, 2017 / 1:20 pm

        I know who caught that one!

      • Faye October 17, 2017 / 1:21 pm

        I had that before video was invented.

    • Blue Footed Booby October 17, 2017 / 12:42 pm

      Vertical video makes some amount of sense when recording a frontal view of a staircase flanked by walls.

      • HaHa October 17, 2017 / 1:16 pm

        Preach, BFB!

      • Smartypants October 17, 2017 / 5:37 pm

        You’re right – we can allow it on a case-by-case basis for subjects like stairs, rocket launches and giraffes 😀

      • Michael October 18, 2017 / 5:36 am

        You mean we’re supposed to use *gasp* judgement? We’re not supposed to condemn something reflexively merely because it violates a group norm? You’re asking people to think? Bold. Bolder nowadays than most times, sadly.

        Thanks to the collective effort, we have plenty of candidates now. If we can only reach a consensus on when to use one! Judgement is hard.

        But thanks to the collective for the effort!

    Anyone else ‘hear’ The Benny Hill Theme Song running thou their heads watching this ?

    Only thing missing is the “Nurses” .. hehe (Pup being Benny)

    • Faye October 17, 2017 / 4:29 pm

      Oh wow. Funny visual.

    • Alice Shortcake October 17, 2017 / 4:43 pm

      I think the Benny Hill theme music is the afore-mentioned “Yakkety Sax”.
