The Liebster Award Allegedly Responsible For Cat Suicide Around The World.

January 30, 2013
The Liebster Award

Las Vegas. It has just been announced, via CNN,  that The Daily Informant has been nominated for The Liebster Award by Jodi Lea. The Liebster Award is given to up and coming bloggers who have less than 200 followers, it’s also a great way to discover up and coming bloggers.

After the media announced the nomination, cats around the world staged mass suicides to protest the nomination. One cat, known only as, Mr Fuzzy Bottoms uploaded a video on YouTube of the catastrophe.

Here is the link. PLEASE NOTE THAT THE FOLLOWING CONTENT CONTAINS GRAPHIC SCENES OF VIOLENCE AND IS NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED.

After being hunted down by the press for a statement, the cats finally held a press conference late last night at Mr Fuzzy Bottoms house and they had this to say:

According to the rules, upon receiving the nomination you are required to do the following:

  1. Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  2. Tell 11 things about yourself.
  3. Answer the 11 questions asked  by the person who nominated you.
  4. Nominate 11 new bloggers
  5. Ask 11 questions to the bloggers you nominated
  6. Inform the bloggers you choose.

 

This was The Daily Informant’s response:

 

11 Things You Wish You Didn’t Know About Me:

  1. As a child, I watched Pinky and the Brain a lot. I studied all their mistakes, I will not make the same mistakes!
  2. I use commas a lot, that’s, just the way I speak, so, that’s how I write.
  3. I already have a plan of action for when I take over the world, and when that day comes, the Gods themselves couldn’t save you!
  4. I love cats. Not because they’re cute and cuddly. But because they don’t seem to love you as much  as you love them.
  5. I’m the one who made that weird sound you heard in bed last night. Good luck sleeping tonight!
  6. I’m afraid of spiders, but then again, who isn’t?
  7. I’ve changed career paths more than I’d like to admit. Everything from astronaut to engineer to gourmet chef.
  8. I once won a Nobel peace prize but they took it back when I made a joke about invading Canada.
  9. If there were Procrastination Awards, I’d win a gold medal. Few people can really appreciate what an art procrastination is.
  10. I sleep during the day, and stay up all night.
  11. When I was 5 years old, I wanted to be an astronaut. But then I read this book:
You Can't Be An Astronaut! It's Just Not Realistic!

You Can’t Be An Astronaut! It’s Just Not Realistic!

 

11 Questions Asked by Jodi Lea From Jodi Lea’s Place:

Q. As a kid (or older) when you pretended to be someone else, who were you and why did you want to be them?

A. Tarzan. I loved that feeling of freedom Tarzan had when he was swinging through the trees.

Q. Have you had your “15-minutes of fame” yet? How did it happen? (If it hasn’t happened, how would you like it to happen?)

A. No. I would like to prevent the assassination of the president.

Q.  If you could change one thing about your personality – what would it be and why?

A. I’m not sure. People don’t really come out and tell you that they don’t like something about you, so it’s really hard to know what people don’t like about you.

Q. What was the last novel you read? Would you recommend it?

A.  A Song of Ice and Fire by George R. R. Martin. It’s actually a series of novels and I would definitely recommend it to everyone.

Q. Who was/is your favorite teacher, and why?

A. My Biology teacher. She saw potential in me.

Q. Besides writing, tell us about one of your other talents.

A. I can go for days without eating, and not even get hungry. That might not be a talent now, but try getting stuck in the middle of the desert with me and we’ll see who’s talented.

Q. Where were you when President Kennedy was shot?

A. President Kennedy was shot in 1963! How old do you think I am?

Q. You wrote a novel about your life growing up, and now Hollywood is making a movie based on that novel. Which actor/actress would you want to play you, and why?

A. Tom Hardy. I need to look good in the movie.

Q. What was your favorite TV show when you were in grade school?  What about now?

A.  Captain Planet and The Planeteers… Wait No! It was Biker Mice From Mars. Now, it’s A Game Of Thrones. But the best TV Series I have ever watched is and ALWAYS will be Firefly.

Q. What are your top 3 pet peeves?

  1. People who talk during a movie. Just shut the F**k up!
  2. Waiting in long lines.
  3. Ignorant people.

Q. Do you like your first name? If not, what would you change it to?

A. No! I’d change it to Snake. Now that’s a bad-ass name!

  1. Not ALL cats behave so strangely.

    If they did the campaign for complete world domination would be a lostg cause.

  8. Youz hilarious mate, my brother from another Biology teacher! Serious now, the alarms bells went off when I read this; I probably watched every ep of Danger Mouse – as a kid – to stop Pinky taking over the world. You’re write about procrastination, if you master the brush strokes, you#ll be able to sleep all day and still get paid. You’re blog is the biziness mate…I’ll be back.

    • Thanks for reading my blog. By the way, I wanted to ask you earlier, what spaceship are those blueprints for?

      • Dammit, you’ve noticed. Doesn’t matter, I intend to foil your evil plans at all costs, Master Card will see that that. The specs are the Enterprise(uppercase E). Got it over at cygnus x. Cheers.
