Here Kitty Kitty

A bus full of loud children frightened this mountain lion up a 35 foot power pole. According to a man who lives in the neighborhood the cat was gone the next day, lucky for the fire department, that would have been a rough rescue. Don't feel bad girl, that many kids all together scare me too!(cougars are girls right??)

Rosita Royce:  Dance of the Doves

The YouTube host of this video complains that Rosita does not use doves in her dance, but other birds, thus misrepresenting herself. But as we can see from this article, that is a mere technicality, since Rosita was quite intimate with doves also.

Bat Sounds?

Several sources claim that in 1999 one of the top-selling CDs in Europe was titled "Bats." It consisted entirely of the sound of bats flying around.

However, one of those sources is the Weekly World News (May 4, 1999). So not very reliable. And since I can't find any trace of this CDs existence elsewhere (I thought a copy would likely have surfaced on eBay -- but no; or on YouTube -- no again), I'm wondering if the CD was real, or one of WWN's jokes.

The other source that mentioned the CD was the Glasgow Sunday Mail, May 2, 1999. But maybe they got their info from the WWN?

Do any WUvians have the answer to this bat mystery? Was Bats really a European top-seller?

When the Circus Comes to Town

I have no idea of the provenance of this half-hour compilation. Shown at cinemas before the main feature? Whatever the case, it has everything. Cornball music, girly cheesecake, animated cartoon, stop-motion cartoon, narration by a chimp. Also, the highly disturbing image reproduced below. Somehow I feel it relates to the "horse fondling" theme of yesterday.

This Is Your Dog On Meth!

Little Guy, a mixed breed terrier, found his owner, Marty Rogers', meth stash and ate some. When Little Guy got sick Marty took him to the vet where he tested positive for meth(of course). The vet turned him, Marty not Little Guy, in to police who then searched their home. They found that Little Guy was polite and left some of the meth for the nice policemen to find, as well as a stolen motorcycle. Both Marty and Little Guy are going to get new homes. One is going to the county pound and the other to the county jail.
