Kittens and laughs! Kittens and laughs!

It’s a holiday in Canada so this will be a shortened post to allow more time for me to garden.   Or sleep.  Or teach my cats to Zumba.    But even though it’s a shortened post, it packs a LOT of punch.

Coming right up,  two photos that include nudity and swearing.  So if you’re offended by either of those things here’s a picture of a kitten running in a meadow.



Now go away because nudity and swearing are coming right up and I wouldn’t want to offend your delicate sensibilities. And even more than that, I don’t want to listen to you complain in the comment section.

Pay attention because I want to know which you think is funnier.



Or …


Vote now.  Cougar or Honey-do?

I vote Honey-do.  Hands down.  Because the truth is always funnier than fiction.

    Honey-Do, definitely. After the amazing cat-attacking-the-dog-that-bit-the-boy video went viral, kittens are having a hard time competing!

  2. Sharman says:

    Honey Do, definitely!

  3. Linda G says:

    Truth! #2 is funnier and exactly what I did today. I have a spouse, but my theory is that the person who is bothered most by the trash/dishes/laundry/dirty kids is the one who has to do the job. That means I do most of it, except the washing of the kids. That one we share. Because I didn’t make them on my own, dammit!

  4. Marrion says:

    I, too, vote Honey-Do (I’m a poet and I know it!).

  5. Peg says:

    Honey do!!!! but the cougar was a funny surprise. as always ,thank you!

  6. Laura Bee says:

    Honey-do for sure. but he does seem to be doing more housework than I am lately. And today I was raking leaves, noticed some old decor gravel that had been sitting in an ice cream tub for weeks at the side of the house and decided to take it to my neighbour (she’s the only one on the street with a gravel driveway…lol) We got talking, I remembered I had some lilies I wanted to give her, so I dug them up & the next thing I know we are having tea at her kitchen table. By the time I got back ( and ordered pizza for dinner because he said he was going to make some for lunch & didn’t -so I guess he would make it for dinner, but didn’t) – he had bagged up most of what I had raked up. But there are things I know I will just have to do myself because he can’t or won’t or just doesn’t give a shit. . . .like my clothes line.

    • Maria says:

      Laura Bee, maybe if you drape HIS washed wet underwear and the rest of his clothes on bushes, low tree limbs, or the front porch railing he might reconsider doing that for you 🙂 Go for it!

  7. Fifi says:

    Hands down the Honey-Do List is fucking hilarious! As a woman myself….I see no humour in cougars sleeping in trees….but as a wife …I see a lot of humour when it comes to poking fun at my Honey! And I think this may be the first time I ever posted a comment with fucking spelled out in full…without the #*&^%^ bullshit to soften the blow…..because this is a fucking awesome blog for mature people who will not be offended….no kids fucking allowed in this treehouse!!!!! Happy fucking Victoria day Karen and all you other Canucks….enjoy the f-bomb fireworks!!!!!!! 😉 Love you Karen <3 (no…I am not drunk)

  8. jane says:

    Honey do. Honey makes his own list. The other one looks painful.

  9. TucsonPatty says:

    Abso-fucking-lutely honey-do – I have pinned that on my pinterest board.
    I love it and it is so so true.
    Also, “Ladies, if a man says he will fix it, he will.There’s no need to remind him every 6 months about it.”

  10. stephanie says:

    Cougar sleeping in the tree … funny. Honey-do – not funny – too true at my house.

  11. Carla says:

    Honey Do for sure. I had handymen working in condo that is going on market and they made a mess. Obviously needed my supervision. How irritating.

  12. Sarah says:


  13. Pat says:


  14. Diane says:

    Honey-d0. Because that’s not really a cougar.

  15. Kathleen says:

    Honey-Do for the win! Remodeling house to put on market with husband who works 12-18 hour days with TWO WHOLE DAYS a month…..guess who does what needs doing? Aaaannnndddd….remodeling the new house so we can move into that one when the first one is finished? y.e.a.h. me.

  16. Stephanie says:

    Cougar. Surprising & interesting to look at…but perhaps more effective if she were at least 10 years older! Like someone else commented, hardly a cougar. The Honey-do was kinda too negative for me. My honey is a type-A mega doer. But we do have a division of labor in our house: pink jobs & blue jobs. Its fun to announce which color the job is. Works for us.

  17. Janelle says:

    I just can’t help but wonder if they gave that lady something with which to protect her delicate bits from the scratchy tree bark.

  18. Grammy says:

    Cougar, because the Honey-do is true. Not that my honey doesn’t do stuff, he just doesn’t do the stuff I want done, or I know I won’t like the way he does it. So I do most things because I’m the one who wants them done and the one who cares how they’re done. The cougar sighting made me smile.

  19. Jake says:

    H0ney-do without a doubt. ps. I think that’s my ex Mother in Law in the tree.

  20. Lindsay H says:

    Totally the cougar. I can only imagine it was a editorial spread in a high fashion magazine and someone twisted it to show how absolutely ridiculous that picture is. I LOVE it.

  21. Deb says:

    Well, I don’t have a honey, so I’d just be berating myself, which is absolutely ridiculous since I already talk with myself…why beat myself up?!?!

    I did think the cougar was pretty funny, although I agree that adding 10 years seems fitting. I loved the play on words. Is that a pundit? Curious. I should look that up, but I’d have to put it on a “do” list.

  22. Marsha Jean says:

    Honey-do…although, both are extremely funny! My DH and I had a fucking “honey-do moment” ourselves today…I said “Fuck you, I’ll do it myself!” Of course, he apologized later, when I returned from the errand…GRRRRR, fuck off buddy!

  23. Melinda says:

    Cougar! Ha!
    I’m surprised by how few votes it is getting.

  24. Shuckclod says:

    I have never seen the cougar one before 😉 I have the other one saved on my computer. I love the kitten one though. Have a great week.

  25. Ember says:

    I’m a prude so I just awwwed at the kitten pic. Not voting for the others. Just love your posts, though. I like scrolling to the “you might like this section” and browsing through old posts. I never know what neat thing I’m gonna be reading about so its fun…like a treasure hunt. Keep writing!!

  26. victoria says:

    You made my sunday night with this sh#t!! Lol!!!!! Thanks! !!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  27. John C says:

    Cougar. You can never go wrong with nudity…

  28. Marion says:

    I vote for the kitten, that picture is sooo cute – it totally made my day!

  29. Emily says:

    I laughed at the cougar. The honey-do was too true to make me laugh :/

    • Dagmar says:

      Sorry. Not offended by either. But is it just me, or do I feel a sense of inferiority. I can neither jump like a kitty, nor climb a tree like the cougar, and damn it to hell- I think I have caught computer-itis (that’s when you work with computers all day, and you’re just too tired to do *anything* than sleep and eat). Basically, I think I wasn’t offended, but I just realized, it’s time to get back into shape. I’m not doing much of the honey-do list either, except for the honey part, if you get my drift.

  30. JennyW says:

    It’s 4:30 am here in the Maratimes, and the Robbins woke me up having a party in my backyard! The Honey-Do List wins hands down. My Hubby hates lists – too much pressure lol! so I make them for me, and Yes, I get the Shit Done 🙂 He will however do random stuff that I never bother to do, like vacume the baseboards and hose down the driveway!

  31. Anne C says:

    As I don’t have a Honey anymore, of course I vote #2, which is me in real life. But as I don’t have a Honey anymore, of course I vote #1, which is me in my dreams!

  32. Sally A says:

    I liked both, but the Cougar made me laugh most! Hilarious!

  33. Jack Ledger says:

    I would think your replies are very much going to be sided according to one’s gender. As I am male, the nudity seems to stir my animal instincts, particularly considering a cougar is involved. On the other hand, the critical perspective of male vs female and the failure of the man to accomplish a list of tasks which perhaps only a team of plumbers, electricians, drywallers, painters, heating/cooling contractors, and candlestick makers might be capable of, leaves my sense of chuckle less than fulfilled.

    • Cred says:

      Or a woman who wants it done!

      Sorry Jack, I couldn’t resist. Sometimes I think us ladies can be pretty hard on our guys in this department. So while, I did chuckle a little about the honey-do list, no big belly laugh from me. I think woman are more capable that they think and the feminist in me thinks they should be doing more of the typically male tasks in a household. Just as I think more men should clean toilets and do laundry.

      Sorry to all for the soap box comment. I don’t want to come off as humourless, I’m hoping my pot-shot at Jack makes up for that.

  34. Mary says:

    Honey-do, Sistah!

  35. Tigersmom says:

    The cougar made me laugh. The honey-do list hit too close to home to be funny.

  36. Kim says:

    Amen sista….I planted a small container lotus I’d love to take pics and write/post about but too much other shit to do. It’s spring and all….

  37. Linda B says:

    The Cougar. I will always vote for the word play. Always!

  38. alissa says:

    without a doubt, honey-do! thanks for a great laugh!

  39. mary says:

    please no contest…

    Honey Do wins hands down. I’ve been waiting over 4 YEARS for a certain house repair to get done, and finally, secretly, talked to a carpenter last week about HIM doing it.

  40. Christine says:

    Oh most def Honey Do!!!!!!

  41. Danni says:

    the truth is funny, Honey-do duh!!

  42. Mary Kay says:

    Honey-do – cause that shit is real! lol

  43. jainegayer says:

    ok Karen. A tree came down, spooked my horse, I came off, broke my arm, gravel in my face and now you’re making me laugh and it hurts! But I vote for the list cause then the shit gets done!
    You have a wonderful day teaching those kitties to zumba. I’m off to medicate.

    • Karen says:

      Oh God. Sorry about your riding accident. I remember them well. There’s nothing worse than a spooked horse. Man they can twist themselves up into a knot! ~ karen

  44. CBuffy says:

    Nope, gonna have to vote for the cougar. That made me laugh out loud – at work. I love my honey and he works harder than I could even imagine doing – so it didn’t work for me…

  45. Leslie says:

    If that’s a cougar, I must be an old grey elephant (I’m only 54)!

  46. I prefer swearing over nudity any day…well, unless it is a beautifully trim naked torso directly above me. So,
    I’ll do it my fucking self…..!
    Oh, and this:

  47. Alex says:

    Oh honey-do. Truth.

  48. Susan Preston says:

    Hands down…honey do! And that’s why I’m single!!

  49. Maureen says:

    Honey-Do! Though both are funny, I agree, truth can be funnier.
