My Newest Saying

After work yesterday, on the drive home, one of the local radio stations was conducting their daily "Drive at 5" music challenge, wherein they take a current popular song and play it backwards, or fast-forward, or whatever, and challenge listeners to guess the song. Yesterday's "Drive at 5" was particularly challenging, and for no reason that I can come up with, I said the following out loud:

"Boy, that's trickier than wiping your ass with a cat. (TM)"

Which, I should state, for the record, I have no experience that I'm aware of when it comes to wiping my ass with a cat (TM). But, I imagine it's probably pretty tricky. You'd have to use the back of the cat and keep the paws pointed away. Also, I suppose you could use the cat's tail for any detail--or even any internal--work that needs to be done. It would also depend on the demeanor of the cat in question. If you have a docile cat, the process would probably be pretty streamlined and uneventful, whereas a resentful, squirming cat would likely put a bit of a fight.

Whatever the case, it's got to be pretty darned tricky to wipe your ass with a cat (TM).

Which should give you an idea how tough yesterday's "Drive at 5" challenge actually was.

UPDATE: I almost let this momentous day slide without realizing today is the one year anniversary of the term ThunderJournalist. Thankfully, LEARNEDFOOT TOOK NOTE. He even made his own online QUIZ so you can see if you're a ThunderJournalist.

I wonder what death cat's reaction would be to that?

"Boy, that's trickier than wiping your ass with a cat. (TM)"

Once, a long time ago, you and I were arguing about something over on my blog and Simon chimed in to agree with you. Acknowledging that he was siding against me, the owner of the blog, he prefaced his criticism with, "I don't want to be a bad guest and wipe my arse with your cat..."

I seem to recall that you took time out from the debate to compliment him on his excellent turn of phrase.

No wonder it just popped in my head. Thanks, Joshua, for the reminder. I guess I can't (TM) that after all. Damn, and my Friday was going so well, too.

Maybe this will cheer you up.

Just make sure you watch the whole clip.
