More dubious fame

God hates shrimp and kittens

While looking for something else (don’t ask) I hit upon the wikipedia page for the internet phenomenon that is a picture of a kitten fleeing domo-kun and the caption “every time you masturbate, god kills a kitten.” I was about to click away when I noticed this:

The phrase originally appeared as the headline “Fact: Every Time You Masturbate, God Kills a Kitten. How Many More Have to Die?” with a kitten photo on the cover of The Gonzo, a satirical publication produced by students at Georgetown University, in 1996

Who knew? Sadly it seems that the online archives of The Gonzo are no longer active. Does anyone know of a live source?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. Seven years ago, I met the woman who was to become my wife with this CityPaper ad:

    Every time you answer someone else’s ad, God kills a kitten. Tall urban hipster urges you to please, think of the kittens.

    Got ad of the week.
