The Piano Police

This isn't something I'd normally post. It's another tale of mental health come undone. A man is found with 21 cats in his motel room. But the online headline was printed sans serif: Plano Police Find 21 Cats in Man's Motel Room, as in Plano, AZ. My glance picked up PIANO POLICE. I imagined a man with a piano and 21 cats. Were the cats stuffed inside the piano? And who were the Piano Police?

This is why I did so well in school, and why I'm always getting lost when I read road signs.

Higher and Higher

It seems like I'm seeing a lot of news stories about cats stranded in tree tops. Here's another way to satisfy a cat's yearning for altitude, without requiring a cherry picker to get it back down.
