Caveman Times

I think it's interesting how there's so many shows on TV that are just about watching people sign or dance. All the possibilities that the moving image can afford us - complicated narratives, special effects, Spellingvision. Yet what we really want to see is just that oldest and simplest form of entertainment - watching someone sing and dance. This has been the crowd favorite since caveman times, our tastes have not evolved at the pace of the technology.

The internet is a lot like this too - as much as it's given us all these crazy new possibilities, the truth has come out that what people really just want to see is cats doing funny stuff. Which you really didn't need the internet for.

So these aren't really "party pictures", but there's beer involved, so it's kind of party-related. And all I really care about is seeing funny pictures of cats. I'm like a caveman; I just can't help myself. Sorry.

I love that this orange guy is drinking a Miller Chill.

This is funnier than LOLcats (which I love too, BTW)! No annoying little misspelled words on the HILARIOUS pics!

I love a good cat party. If only I were joking.

Stupid LOLcats. My favorite has a caption of "I'm just a cat, stop anthropomorphizing me"
