Happy belated birthday wishes AArdvark! For future reference, what date is your birthday exactly? If I'd have known I would have definitely started a birthday thread for you, but I suppose this year probably didn't feel particularly joyful or festive under the circumstances.

Did you consider using TOO SOONCES in your signature there? I think you missed an opportunity there or maybe I have things all wrong, I don't know.

A better caption would have been, "Now how do I get my cell phone back?"

I like AArdvark's caption better because cats don't own cell phones.

No shit, Sherlock. They also don't drink "little Friskies cocktails" if for no other reason than that there is no such thing, and Little Friskies is kitten food; that was a full-grown adult cat. Cats also don't drink alcoholic beverages. Also, cats don't use toilets to puke in, they just puke on the floor. My fake caption is just as "realistic" as the first, i.e. not at all. Besides, even if a cat was going to use a toilet, it doesn't have to stick its head (and half its body) into the bowl if it needed to vomit any more than people do. But if it had to try to get something out of the bowl, it would have to.

Well, the problem here is that this is just too believable of a situation. Like a cat could be playing with a set of keys, drop it in the toilet for whatever reason, and then want to retrieve it to play with it some more. It would be like if you captioned it this:

"This is what happens when AArdvark's cat sticks part of its body in the toilet and then AArdvark photographs it."


See? It just doesn't work well as a caption and that is why AArdvark's original caption is still the best one: because it hits that sweet spot between completely absurd (your first caption) and completely believable (your most recent one).
