Tumblr lolcat

I just learned that british photographer Harry Pointer made a lot of captioned photographs of cats in various situations in the late 19th century...

look at this:

the lolcat is over a century old

(from granadahvlmes Tumblr, who got it from transtrendad's Tumblr)

One of T.S. Eliot's lighter poems...note the allusions ;)

Macavity: The Mystery Cat

Macavity's a Mystery Cat: he's called the Hidden Paw--
For he's the master criminal who can defy the Law.
He's the bafflement of Scotland Yard, the Flying Squad's despair:
For when they reach the scene of crime--Macavity's not there!

Macavity, Macavity, there's no-one like Macavity/ He's broken every human law, he breaks the law of gravity... )

Fare Well

When I lie where shades of darkness
Shall no more assail mine eyes,
Nor the rain make lamentation
When the wind sighs;
How will fare the world whose wonder
Was the very proof of me?
Memory fades, must the remembered
Perishing be?

Oh, when this my dust surrenders... )

Comfort

As I mused by the hearthside,
Puss said to me;
'there burns the fire , man,
and here sit we.

Four walls around us
against the cold air;
and the latch drawn close
to the draughty stair.


A roof o'er our heads... )
