BEAT THE CARTOONIST

Are you claiming I slept through the whole thing?

Spencer Ferguson, Greensboro

.

He just wouldn't leave the house....

40 days and counting with HIM still in the house....

Am I going to be sentenced to 8-9 lives?

Can you identify the HUMAN in here today?

I was over 6 feet away from HIM when it happened.

I had 7 catnip's before shredding the shepherd back.

I was in a catatonic state of mind when I attacked the birdcage.

The CAT-tastrophy was caused by too much catnip.

One catcall too many caused all nine of me to attack the dog pound.

Mike Perry, Eden

.

I agree to 5 consecutive life sentences, but only with the proviso that I come up for a chance for parole after 3!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

1. I swear that I did not know that it was his pet mouse.

2. Let me make it purrfectly clear. I am not guilty!

3. No! I did not jump up on the dining room table. I don’t even like squash.

Dave Sheets, Greensboro

.

If I committed one crime, why am I being giver nine life sentences?

Mike Perry, Eden

That's it?  You're charging me for having a hissy fit?

Mike Perry, Eden

.

 “He threatened all 9 of my lives “

Lee Reavis, Greensboro

.

Well, what would you do if someone tried to declaw you?

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Of course I killed him.  He tried to skin me for goodness sakes!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Yeah, I killed that dirty rat. I'm a cat. It's my job.

It can't be me. I'm brown, the hairball was black.

You expect me to do what you ask? I'm a cat. Be serious.

...and then he said, "Hissssss".

He said it was the purr-fect crime.

Ken Sheldon, Elon

.

"Do your worst, judge"

"Okay, 9 life sentences!"

Kristi Wallace, Greensboro

.

Yes!  I understand what a guilty decision can bring.  But I never despair- I always land on my own two feet!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Well yes!  I admit I did break in.  If I hadn't, I'd have died from curiosity!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Our relationship ended when he started rubbing me the wrong way.

Frankly he just rubs me the wrong way.

I told him my secret Jellicle name and he blabbed it!

I came home to find him with a Chihuahua in his lap.

He tried to trade me in for a Miniature Dachshund.

We can’t live together any longer because he thinks he’s in charge.

I gave him eight of my best lives.

I allowed him to pet me, now he thinks I actually care for him.

We were doing fine until the day he brought home that laser pointer.

I’m tired of his sick “catch the red dot” games.

He brought home a whole basket of puppies.  Puppies!

He had just finished his novel, when I accidently stepped on the delete key.

He actually expects me to catch a mouse.  I mean without gloves or anything.

When we fight I leave a hairball in his shoe.

Could I help it if the latch on that birdcage was so easy to open?

He tried to force me to clean my own litter box.  Who does that?

How I was to know that rare bird he brought home was so expensive?

I told him up front that I don’t do the outdoors.

He got me one of those toilet-top litter boxes, and I almost drowned.

Of course I want a divorce.  He tried to give me a bath.

So I refused to eat twenty-seven different brands of cat food.  A girl is entitled to be a little choosy.

You can’t believe a word he says.  I once saw him pet a dog.

Roy Forrest, Whitsett

.

It's not me who should be up here.  It's him-right there- he's the one who refused to have me spayed

Mike Perry, Eden

.

The moniker "killer cat" fits me!  I'm the original  weapon of mice destruction!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Of course I count my litter box as a business deduction.  That's where I do my business!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

I'm really not worried what happens out of all of this.  I always land on my feet!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

#1:    "Hmmmm.  I'm experiencing deja vu right now!"

#2:    "Meow!"

#3:    "Expect me to talk?  You must be trying to get an insanity plea!"

#4:    "Yes, I violated the Stay at Home Order.  So sue me!"

#5:    "What we have here is truly a game of Cat and Mouse!"

#6:    "Sure!  Go ahead!  Give me the death penalty!  I've got nine lives!"

#7:    "How dare you accuse me of being a cat burglar!"

#8:   "The cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon,

            Little boy blue and the man in the moon,

            'When you coming home, Son?' 'I don't know when,'

            But we'll get together then, Dad,

            You know we'll have a good time then!"

...with apologies to Harry Chapin and Sandra Chapin.

#9:    "Yes, I plead guilty to illegally performing CAT scans!"

#10:    "You've got to give me credit for being a really cool cat up here!"

#11:    "I'm suing for my share of royalties for 'Cat on a Hot Tin Roof!"'

#12:    "Don't bother asking for explanations,

             She'll just tell you that she came

            In the Year of the Cat!"

...with apologies to Al Stewart and Peter Wood.

.

#14:    "They give me Cat Scratch Fever,

                Cat Scratch Fever!"

...with apologies to Ted Nugent.

Paul J. Klosterman, High Point

.

Why'd I kill the dog?   Because he woke me up for goodness sake!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

"So the baskets at the security check-point weren't litter pans?"

"I'm sorry I went Wild Animal Kingdom when the security guard frisked me."

"I apologize for using the bailiff's leg as a scratching-post."

"Swearing me in won't work because I never tell the truth."

"I assume the dog isn't testifying because he's too dumb."

"The judge's chambers were the perfect place to nap."

"Excuse my caterwauling - I'm in heat."

Bill Wallace

.

I promise I'll never sell the cat on E-bay again!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Sure!  I've read "To Kill a Mockingbird."  Doesn't mean I did it!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Sure!  I admit it, but I'd only had 21 hours of sleep that day!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

"Just because I’m a cat it doesn’t mean I’m a burglar.”

John Wimmer, Greensboro

.

Yes!  The defendant was knocking down drinks at the time.  But we do it all the time,  it comes natural!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

I had no reason to commit any crime like that.  It's a dog-eat-dot world, and all we have to do is wait!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Neither one.  I plead "feral!"

Mike Perry, Eden

.

"Instead of a prison sentence, could I get laser-pen therapy?"

"20 years is only two lifetimes, so I'm OK with that sentence."

"Sending me to jail is one thing. A dog as a cell-mate is cruel and unusual punishment."

"Can I serve my time in the Meow-Mix cat food factory?"

"Am I going to the cat big-house or the big cat-house?"

"I'm not sure Judge Bassett was completely unbiased in this trial."

"Parole based on good behavior is a pipe-dream."

Bill Wallace

.

I was born in a filthy, slimy Bombay slum in a brood of 17, with only nasty-raw sewage water to drink.  It's not my fault I'm a top end predator!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

You think you're life is hard?  Try living on a hot tin roof!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

The reason I was fired was because it was after I was hired, they found out they'd be contributing to

nine insurance and life insurance plans.

Mike Perry, Eden

.

I don't understand the complaint.  If they don't want us on it, then why call it fur'niture?

Mike Perry, Eden

.

I don't know, I was asleep at the time ... I  can't remember, being asleep and all that … Nope.  Asleep … Unh unh, down for the count!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Was she my owner?  Yes. Did I do it?   Yes. Why'd I do it?  Because she vacuumed … every … single ... day!!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

"There's a burglary so you drag me in.  That's 'profiling' and you know it!"

Larry Parrish,  San Diego

.

Yes.  I think it would be safe to say I know a thing or two about string theory!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Did I do it? In a span of 5 day- I lost my mittens, I was spayed, a 4 hour hairball, I was declawed,

And- she willed everything to the parakeet!  Of course I did it!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

I've seen this kind of rush-to-justice before, and it's only because I refuse to stink outside the box!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Of course we did all we could, but in the end he had a severe case of curiosity.

Mike Perry, Eden

.

Yes.  I heard your psychiatrist's argument that I was completely psychotic.  But just remember this-  for cats, psychotic

is completely normal!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

This is not the Fancy Feast I expected

Sorry. The cat got my tongue

Is this some kind of cat and mouse game ?

I want to talk to my vet

No, I did not steal that truck full of Grey Poupon

Yes, I am the cat’s meow

I herd what you said

It’s a cat eat cat’s world out there

I am a cat- The lockdown didn’t apply to me

But she told me she was 16

I did not have sex with that feline

I did manage to get out of the bag

I couldn’t have done it- I was the cat on the hot tin roof

I swear I was home alone with my Grey Poupon

I am missing my nap time

When do we have the recess for my Purina Cat Chow ?

I did not bring the Coronavirus here from Wuhan

Where are the masks ?

Hey !!! You 2 are only 4 feet apart

Lee F Richmond, Jamestown

.

"I was hiding under the sofa when I saw him leave with the carrier."

"When I woke from my nap the parakeet was missing."

"I saw the dog with feathers in his mouth !"

"Then the burglar took my brother...."

"I saw the defendant set the carrier in the kitchen."

"I said, 'Dog, if you eat my food one more time....'"

"Then he let me out of the bag."

"I don't know why I couldn't be on his fence."

"I plead the fifth about the shredded sofa."

"Isn't it always the dog who eats it ?"

''I heard him clearly say the word 'vet.'"

"I smelt a rat!"

Debra Watson, Eden

.

 “I thought it was catnip.”

“I’ll plea bargain for the death penalty as long as it’s not more than 8.”

“It wasn’t me, it was my Siamese twin.”

“I need time for a lick.”

“Hey, I brought the kill to you.”

“I’m being charged with a feliney?”

“I move to dismiss the dog from the jury.”

“I’ll agree to a house arrest.”

Phil Valla, Greensboro

.

No!  I wouldn't say I'm a dyed-in-the-wool Communist, but I have followed the teachings of Meow for a long time now!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

This corona-virus is turning us all into cats!  We stay home, we practice social distancing and we clean ourselves often!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

After my release, I hope to land back on my feet again.

David Core, Greensboro

.

“I never signed a release for that cute video she posted.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“So what? He has 8 left!”

Tim Tribbett

.

“It looked like a litter box.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“In my defense he did try to pill me.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“Yeah, I took his tongue.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“That little red dot was taunting me.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“If jail is like being in a box I’m fine with it.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“He threatened me with a vacuum.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“They were my pajamas.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“Dragging it in is what I do.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“Attempted murder of the red dot?”

Tim Tribbett

.

“In my defense he was a mouse.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“I have that ‘cat who swallowed the canary’ look again don’t I?”

Tim Tribbett

.

“Yeah, I stole it but just for the box.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“He denied me his lap.”

Tim Tribbett

.

“What’s wrong? A cat got your tongue?”

“I’d get a new lawyer if I were him!”

“The judge is not as dumb as you said he was!”

“Can we take a litter break?”

“MEAW”

Rusty Morgan, Greensboro

.

"The dog had it coming to him, but I swear it was that mouse, Jerry, that did him in!"

"First of all, I'd like to establish exactly WHO is on trial here, before I agree to say anything."

Suzie Otstot, Wake Forest

.

"So all they got is that they saw a ginger tabby looking at their flower bed??!?"

"So what you're saying is that they saw a ginger tabby cat?  That's it???  Come ON... there's a million of us!"

"Check my nails.  I keep Mine manicured!"

Couldn't have been me.   Go'head; check my nails.  I keep Mine manicured!!"

CC Cockerham, Greensboro

.

"I'll have you know that I have several friends who are dogs."

"Well... I never really knew my dad.... just that his name is Tom."

CC Cockerham, Greensboro

.

"Yes, my name IS Shaggy... but it WASN'T ME!!!"

"Just because my mom named me Garfield doesn't mean that I like Lasagna.... i DO... But I didn't take any... yet."

Suzanne Otstot, Wake Forest

.

"I did my fur toss, checked my nails;  I wouldn't dream of digging in her flower bed."

"I know where I was that day.  SLEEPING!  Ask me about another date."

"I may have rubbed up against her. I even bumped her forehead with mine.  What's the problem??"

CC Cockerham, Greensboro

Do what you want to me, I've got nine lives.

THIS WEEK’S JOY “WALKS INTO A BAR” (and other) JOKES

A cat walks into a bar and sits down.

Bartender: "what can I get you?"

Cat: "a shot of rum"

Bartender pours the rum, and slides the shot over to the cat. The cat looks at the rum, then smacks it right off the bar top onto the floor. Bartender looks at the cat questioningly.

Cat says " I'll have another "

Mike Perry, Eden

.

The man, the dog, and the cat all sit down at the bar and the bartender says "What can I get you?"

 The dog looks squarely at the bartender and says I'll take a vodka, the guy will take a water, and the

cat will take a scotch." The bartender looks absolutely shocked at the dog and says "This is AMAZING!

You're a dog that can talk..." The guy looks at the bartender, and says "Don't be fooled, the cat is a ventriloquist!

Mike Perry, Eden

.

A policeman in the big city stops a man in a car with a Siberian Lynx in the front seat. “What are you doing with that Siberian Lynx?” He exclaimed, “You should take it to the zoo.”  The following week, the same policeman sees the same man with the cat again in the front seat,  with both of them wearing sunglasses. The policeman pulls him over. “I thought you were going to take that cat to the zoo!” The man replied, “I did. We had such a good time we are going to the beach this weekend!”

Mike Perry, Eden

BEST POEMS

Testifying Tabby

This is a common feline judicial proceeding;

the cat is demanding justice in his pleading.

His owner trashed his beloved evening nap

by refusing to provide him with a vacant lap.

.

He has oft-times observed their family dog

curled up on the couch, loudly sawing logs.

His stupid head resting in that sacred spot,

an unearned new privilege he sneakily got.

.

The legal remedy which he solemnly seeks

has been argued in court for twelve weeks.

The Supreme Court wouldn't stand for that,

but then, they've never had to please a cat.

.

Just when it seems a settlement is at hand,

the darn cat pipes up with added demands.

The judge fumes, saying he's seen enough;

bangs his gavel, but the feline hangs tough.

.

He refuses to alter his stated legal position;

he's not intimidated and is on a pet mission.

In the end, he overcomes and gets his way;

the judge delivers an order to neuter today.

.

And so the pup is shuttled to the family vet;

after a few snips, he's had all he'll ever get.

Back home, too sore to jump on the couch,

he just rests on the floor in a painful crouch.

Bill Wallace

.

J'Accuse, Jean-Pierre!

This sophisticated feline is of French derivation,

but is a naturalized citizen of our special nation.

His fanatical belief in the motto 'L'etat c'est moi'

gives him a regal aura, a certain je ne sais quoi.

.

Unfortunately, JP is caught in a legal quandary

after relieving himself in the neighbor's laundry.

This is something you might not care to repeat;

in his heavy accent, he says he had the sheets.

.

The plaintiff has hired a high-powered attorney;

they yearn to send JP up the river on a journey.

Instead of the good life, playing cat and mouse,

he'll be found guilty, sentenced to the big house.

.

It appears to be the typical open and shut case;

the neighbor's wash has stains you can't erase.

If the judge needs more proof, here's a fatal tell;

get within six feet and you can't stand the smell.

.

Jean-Pierre is a hip, well-known cat-about-town;

icily refuses to let these humans take him down.

Tells the judge, "Your Honor, most people know

for a cat of my pedigree, this was comme il faut".

.

The judge overlooked the cat's attitude hauteur

and tactfully pointed out it was only pet manure.

He scolded Jean-Pierre for his actions and then

gave the cat a sentence to the pan, not the pen.

Bill Wallace

.

Today's trial didn't go quite as planned.

When they put a cat up on the stand,

       He just sat there and purred.

       He meowed not a word,

And ignored every single demand.

Ken Sheldon, Elon

.

The cat went on trial, seems like every May

he would run wild, The judges said "thirty days"

Maybe that will take off that smile

The next time

will be a fine

And maybe some more time.

Joey Pellino, Reidsville

.

The cat was on trial and told the judge

"I can't help being like that

I was raised by a cat in the hat.”

Joey Pellino, Reidsville

.

The cat on trial said to the judge

"Your Honor, you are always good and fair

If you let me go this time

I promise not to use the kids sandbox the next time

 I have to be there.

Joey Pellino, Reidsville

.


BEST INSIDE JOKE

No, I did not steal that truck full of Grey Poupon

I swear I was home alone with my Grey Poupon

Lee F Richmond, Jamestown
