A slow Tuesday afternoon spent chewing Arnott’s Assortments led to the discovery of a fascinating YouTub sub genre. The journey began with the question: how to spell cheezburger?, which inevitably led to kittens, which always leads to babies.
And thus I give you YouTube sub genre # 329: baby v cat, or the lesser known, cat v baby.
A global phenomenon, the scenario is self explanatory. Various permutations of baby, be it:
a) terrytowelling jumpsuited (feet included)
b) bald, and crawling
c) fluff headed
d) very often resembling a serious, fat, white businessman.
Combined with the tantalising concept of a cat. Which is always:
c) completely immune to a baby’s wiley charms
d) sometimes dangerous and nearly always pissed off.
It’s the juxtaposition of the delighted baby meets the i-don’t-give-a-rat’s-ass-how-much-you-love-me-unhand-me-you-bald-fool attitude of the cat that serves to boil down, to its very essence, the phenomenon of ohai humour. Variations on the theme include: cat jumps on baby, baby bites cat, cat annoys sleeping baby, baby squashes cat, toddler v kitten, cat quietly endures humiliation at hands of baby, etc.
Next week, kitten v watermelon.
