Henri parle de la politique

by Matthew Cobb

Henri, le chat philosophe, gives us his views on extending suffrage to felids, touching in the final section on the fundamental revolutionary slogan: no castration without representation. But is this a slippery slope? By what logic could we give the vote to cats, but keep it from dogs, or *shudder* cephalopods?

    Why, by feline logic, of course.

      CEILING CAT HAZ DECIDE HOO GETS 2 VOTE!

    Considering that cats are gods, dogs are dyslexically confused, and cephalopods are spineless…I’m really not seeing why there should be any confusion.

    Besides. In most households, cats already have the only votes that matter.

    I have a fridge magnet saying “Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.”

    Neither has Henri, it appears.

      Hmmm. My magnet reads, “HOME–where the cat hair sticks to everything but the cats.”

      …But I digress…

    I.F. Stone said it best: “All governments are run by liars and nothing they say should be believed.” By contrast: “I don’t trust those in power” is totally weeny.
