harnaaz sandhu just got crowned miss universe for doing a cat impression.
predictably, some whiny humans were “outraged.”
this seems out of line. do these people even speak “cat”?
i mean, yeah, her comments were a little racy for broadcast TV, but i thought they were both pithy and poignant, especially “meeow.”
compared to most of the stupid questions that get asked in these pageants, this was a welcome breath of fresh air, levity, and big-tent anti-speciesism.
sure, it’s a little unfair to let cats compete with humans, but if they can be prime ministers, surely they can be beauty queens as well.
get used to it.
Julie Newmar still did it first and better in 1966 on Batman
I may irk some people by saying this, but if she would have been a "Trans-kitty" and done the exact same thing it would have been hailed as "brave"...
There are still Miss Universe Pageants? Where the hell have I been?
Hahaha my dog came running across the house , and my cat perked his ears up .
They both agreed it was an excellent impersonation !
Definitely had an unfair advantage! My two cats weren't quite happy that she told them to get the jab though.
Both of my kitties came to attention!! "Yay, new friend in the house!"
I don't speak cat as well as I should but it sounded like something about NLM (nine lives matter) and diversity is our stray-ngth (maybe a feral cat?)
Fake cat imposters..mmm could they be trying to infiltrate?
1. To pass (troops for example) surreptitiously into enemy-held territory.
2. To penetrate with hostile intent.
3. To enter or take up positions in gradually or surreptitiously as for the purposes of espionage
1. She’s insanely hot.
2. When she did her “meme” my cat was all attention, undivided and intense.
My cat was not fooled.😆

You are becoming more relevant by the day. Are we being taken over by catz or what?
I was stumped about the feline PM so natch I examined the interwebs. I discovered a true catvocate in the Israeli Knesset: https://www.timesofisrael.com/mk-booted-for-meowing-brandishing-cat-doll-during-budget-vote/. Granted, he is not YET PM, but hey - we have a stuffed animal for a president so...
But back to Miss India. Chicky's got talent. I love how she added the supplicating bended paw. Crutial to her winning AND getting warm milk and petting from Steve Harvey. How he held a straight face???
Watched it 3 times, missed the cat thing each time. Is it really there? Otoh, Miss India is something. Did she win?
Ok mi gato came running when I played that on my phone just now!
She woke up a sofa full of sleeping cats, but they mostly went right back to sleep so either her rabble rousing didn't work, or my cats have already been 'read in'.
Whew… at first glance I was expecting this to be a thread about a trans woman winning the title.
"do these people even speak “cat”?"
ahh hahahahaha .. ahhahaha .. ah ha ha, ah haha .. ahhh hahahahahaha
Cats are taking over the world! El Gato, are you sure the vaccine doesn't actually contain some toxoplasmosis larvae?
Colin from Whose Line was ahead of his time. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=FuiIu3YNeiU
I don't suppose you remember when the founding leader of the Monster Raving Loony Party in the UK died, a marmalade cat stepped in on a temporary basis as leader of the party. Unfortunately the cat had handed (pawed?) over to a human by the time of the next election.
She may have mewed provocatively...but those puppy-dog eyes!
Okay. She's fantastic. I have nothing more to say about that.
Finland's Prime Minister makes a passable cat woman (see google images. I did not include the URL because it seemed longer than this entire comment thread.). Her name is Sanna Marin, instead of more typical unpronounceable to foreigners without much practice. 🙂
I don't know about the present topic, but I can remember a time when beauty pageant winners didn't require a genetic test. Case in point: this year's Miss Nevada was, I believe, a Mr. Ye gods, what odd times we do live in!
I'm fairly sure that space alien that put on a brown wig has never actually seen a cat before, and the data files on xir ship were partially damaged or something.
