I read in the paper the other day that a Japanese company is marketing a device that translate a cat's meow to humanspeak. They already have a device to translate a dog's bark to humanspeak.

What do you think your cat or dog would say if it could speak to you? I believe my cat Sitka would tell me, "When are you going to do something about this little human who keeps pulling my hair, kicking me and otherwise torturing me. I was here first!

I'm pretty sure they are thinking, "why the hell do I get pillows and other objects thrown at me every time I start washing my privates?"

My oldest cat would say "Hairballs aside, why did you take me off of tuna?". My fat boy cat would say "Why won't the dog play with me?".

My big fat cat needs no translation--she only has one phrase, "wet food NOWWWWWWW" and will use it repeatedly until she gets it.

What would Bailey say?

"The primary theme of Scuglia's critique of patriarchial discourse is not situationism, as postcapitalist theory suggests, but postsituationism. In Death: The High Cost of Living, Gaiman affirms patriarchial discourse; in Stardust he reiterates Marxist class. GUINNESS? STOP SNIFFING MY BUTT! I'LL PLAY WITH YOU WHEN I'M GOOD AND READY However, the characteristic theme of the works of Gaiman is a self-falsifying whole ... GUINNESS! STOP BARKING! Okay, where was I? Yes ... In the works of Gaiman, a predominant concept is the concept of subconceptualist culture. GUINNESS! SHUT UP ALREADY! Bataille promotes the use of patriarchial discourse to challenge the status quo. HEY! GUINNESS! GIVE ME BACK MY CHEWIE! It could be said that several desublimations concerning the role of the artist as poet exist. DAN! pet me pet me pet me pet me pet me pet me pet me pet me belly belly belly belly belly pet me pet me pet me pet me belly belly belly belly belly belly pet me pet me pet me pet me pet me oh yeah rub my belly oh yeah don't stop hey Guinness needs a bath pet me pet me pet me"

Guinness: "Are we there yet are we there yet are I'm a dog are we there yet are we there yet are we there yet oooh feedlot mmmmmmmmmmm are we there yet I wanna' pee on something are we there yet I'm a dog are we there yet are we there yet I'm a dog are we there yet are we there yet are we there yet are we there yet are we there yet I wanna' pee on something are we there yet I'm a dog I'm a dog I wanna' pee on something are we there yet are we there yet?

Bailey: "In the works of Eco, a predominant concept is the distinction between creation and destruction. Guinness? Did you fart? Wait ... we must be driving through Texas. Anyhow, the primary theme of the works of Eco is the common ground between canine identity and consciousness. Many dematerialisms concerning not, in fact, discourse, but subdiscourse may be discovered. Therefore, the subject is contextualised into a posttextual paradigm of reality that includes language as a reality. I have to pee."

I have two cats. The skinny siamese would tell me to get away, leave her alone, quit making so much noise. "stop looking at me, what did I do?"

The fat black one would say "I need something to chew on. Got some fingers? Got some food? mmmmmmm food, food food food foood foooooooooood. (gnaw gnaw)"

I'd imagine my 23 pound tabby cat would say something sarcastic like, "Well first off, thanks sooooo much for cutting my nuts off."

One of my old roomates had an indifferent Chow-Chow that we thought would say stuff like,"Hey, why don't you go to the damn store to get me a 40 and apack of Marlboro Reds! Yeah, I'm talking to you. What the hell you looking at?"

Yeah, she was kinda butch like that.

I am pet free right now.

I know I have already mentioned this in teh favourite pets thread, but we had a cat that would speak. he could say my name and simple sentences.

When they get the donkey translator done let me know, I need to have a conversation with allistair.icon12.gif

The other morning James and I woke to the sound of pouring water.. that ended up being Hatcher peeing all around the bed. We're not just talking a puddle, we're talking about an entire horseshoe around the bed. Sadie Madison was watching over the entire thing from her crate and I swear she was telling him what to do, their own little Pinky and The Brain senario to get more wet food. Bizarre.

My super agile, 5' high jumping 35 mph running bred for lion hunting Rhodesian Ridgeback always says....

"You I can jump over your little 5' fence as if it wasn't there. I've done it on numerous occasions, and you can't catch me when I take off, so you better be nice, or I'm gone."

OK.... now how do that do that??? I think that it is cool if they could, but I find it a little far fetched.

I am sure that many dogs would be like... "WHERE DID YOU GO?? YEA YOUR HOME YOUR HOME, HAPPY ME HAPPY ME. ok LETS GO OUT SIDE, I HAVE TO PEE I HAVE TO PEE, YEA YOUR HOME. I THOUGHT YOU WHERE NEVER GOING TO COME BACK...

OR

YEAAAA NEW PEOPLE HERE TO SEE ME!!! YEAAAA NEW PEOPLE HERE TO SEE ME!!! LOVE ME, LOVE ME, PET ME, PET ME... YEAAAA NEW PEOPLE HERE TO SEE ME!!!

I've just lost all desire to get a pet.

You must have really pissed him off somehow! Pets have very distinctive ways of expressing their displeasure with us...

We have a very lazy and indifferent Chow/golden mix who gets very obviously annoyed with our hyper dobie/black lab mix.

Parker: Jesse - go away. leave me alone. stop licking my ears. ugh, i DO NOT want to play with you!

Jesse: PARKER! LETS PLAY! sniff sniff lick lick PLAY WITH ME! (I imagine all of jesse's "talking" is *very* loud.) PARKER! YOU"RE MY BEST FRIEND.

Parker: I hate you so very very much.

I suppose the neighborhood stray cats would say "Here comes that bitch trying to run us over again. Let's go piss on her garden."

Enos: I wonder if I can fit his whole head in my mouth.....he's clawed me enough times....I think I owe him....





Cooper: I wonmder how many times I can get him to chase me if I jump on his back from the couch a few more times....he doesn't seem to do very much when I play with him....he must be old....ooooh....there's a toy on the floor....I gotta go chase it....maybe if I meow a few more times that guy with the beard will feed me again....

(BTW: Cooper is now about double the size of this picture, and Enos has had his summer haircut)

if a cat and dog read cyburbia postings, and then talked
would they talk like Bucky (the cat) and Satchel (the dog) in the cartoon "Get Fuzzy"?

today's strip gave me this questionablely lame idea

Dog: "Oh, yeah. This guy's an easy mark. Scrtch me. Rub my tummy. Mmmm. Give me something tasty. Now throw that stick. Look at this. Every time I bring the stick back he throws it for me."

Cat: "Are you going to bean me in the head with a rock again?" (pause) "Ouch!"

They would say "You are lucky I let you live in this house with me and sleep in my bed. Now get over here and scratch me and don't stop until I tell you."

My dog would say, Go, I like to go, can we go, hurry up, let's go, I Like the truck can we go in the truck, I like to go, I want to go now, you are not working today when do we get to GO, GO GO NOW.
He also says, Let me go get you a ball. You have been really good to me and that reward is to get to play ball with me, now.
Oh let me go get another ball, you have been really good.

The tabby we had eons ago would saunter in the room and say:

"Okay, I'm here. I like this spot. What are you looking at? Where's my milk? Aaaaahhhhhhggggggg, this is so pedestrian. Sooooooooo boring. Do something interesting....just don't look at me like that....what you expect me rub all over you? I did that last week. Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..........."

I don't own a dog right now, but I have owned a few in the past. Without exception, I think all of them would tell me, "Don't yell at me for that. You'd lick yours too if you could"

Preparing? Dude, the invasion's already begun. We're starting with the entertainment industry (mostly comics). The plan is to lull you with laughter, and then strike at just the right time. It's hard to take up arms when you're pissing your pants from laughing.

I know a chick from Saskatchewan living in DC. Maybe they can hook-up and talk about the flatlands.
