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.


  1. mia pratt says:

    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.

  50. Debbie says:

    Honey Do all the way!!!

  51. Linda J Howes says:

    Cougar! It made me guffaw, Honey-Do, just made me sigh.

  52. yipee says:

    honey do, no doubt

  53. Melissa in North Carolina says:

    Funny and oh so true, the Honey-do list. It’s so true it hurts!!!!

  54. Cindy says:

    Honey-do, without a doubt. And it’s not because the hubby wouldn’t do it – it’s just that he wants to wait and do it the right way. I just want it done, and I don’t care if it’s done the right way! There are a wealth of things around our house that I’ve fixed with hot glue and craft paint and velcro.

  55. Karen P says:

    I’ve got the best hubby ever so the 2nd one doesn’t apply here at all. Between us, I’m the one who is the slacker, and that doesn’t make me laugh… ever. Now the cougar is funny (not like ROFL funny) but good for a smile. I totally agree with the others that the specimen they located isn’t old enough to count as a real cougar. I hope for that woman’s sake that the pic was photoshop’d cause that bark has to hurt like hell!!! I’d like to suggest a weekly post with the theme Nudity and Swearing! for those of us who aren’t limited to cute kitten pics for enjoyment. 🙂

    • Pam says:

      You can’t have the best hubby, cause I do…. 🙂 But glad to know there are two of us who feel that way. We have a joint list of projects that we DO together 🙂

      • Maria says:

        Are you absolutely sure you two don’t have the same ‘best hubby?’ Just askin’ 🙂 (That’s a funny just in case anybody got offended. But THAT happened to my cousin, who found out about 18 years into her marriage and 3 kids, that her husband had another family, complete with kids)!

  56. Vanessa says:

    The cougar is funnier (I literarlly LOL’d) But the honey do shit is SO TRUE!!!

  57. says:

    def Honey – do
    copying and sending to all my girlfriends who f-ing know it’s true

  58. Pam says:

    Found your blog via Pinterest while searching for backyard makeover ideas… #1 is funny because I know it will make my hubby laugh. #2 is funny because at our house we have ONE list of things to do and we do them together. Spent the last two days building new stairs with LED lights for our deck. Today we will plan our water feature (waterfeature into pond) beside the deck. What a wonderful way to spend Victoria Day (yes also in southern Ontario) with my honey – DOing stuff together 🙂

  59. taria says:

    cougar. the honey do woman just choose poorly when she married and then failed to train him properly. She gets a big fat fail in my opinion. Many women have broken husband-pickers. The results are pretty bad.

    • Tracey Enright says:

      taria, your comment was the only comment in 60 that blames the wife for having a husband that chooses to do nothing….and it made me sad. Lots of men do all kinds of things to impress before you marry, then expect the wife to do everything after a couple of years. It’s not my job to “train” him.

      Karen, I love the kitten pic, and the cougar. The comments from some on the honey do list at least made me feel like I’m not the only one who has to do everything myself. But thank goodness for your blog to teach me how to do all kinds of things….again, thank you for giving me the confidence and for sharing your knowledge with us. You are my hero!!!! Xo I hope you’ve been having a lovely May 2-4 weekend!

      • taria says:

        If you can’t tell the difference between a man that is trying to impress you from a good caring thoughtful man that is sad. We don’t have a honey do list. We each work together as a team to get things done. We both do it all, pretty much. I chose well and some luck was thrown in also. Too many women are afraid to have reasonable expectations for men in their lives. I have gotten tired of seeing women that spent years trying to be the right wife for the wrong husband. It is sad to see women thinking so little of themselves to put up with a crappy man rather than none.

  60. Deva says:

    Honey-do. If you want something done, do it yourself.

  61. Laura N. says:

    Well, I am a traditional kinda gal. Can’t do much when it comes to maintenance. Cougar is funnier.

  62. Nadine says:

    the kitten is the best!

  63. Twyla says:

    Honey do definitely. I do love the cougar, but I am a DIYer, so love the honey do. 🙂

  64. susan w says:

    That is NOT a cougar – far too young. Nothing is drooping over sides of branch.
    THAT would be funny (if it weren’t so true)

  65. Marion says:

    Oh the Honey-Do for sure. But as some others have pointed out, the cougar photo is pretty hilarious! Hope you’re enjoying your holiday.

  66. Kim C. says:

    Honey-do for sure! I also chuckled after reading the quote that TusconPatty posted in the comments way up top there! Happens around here too often but if I didn’t laugh about it I’d be a raging nag and that’s just not as funny.

  67. Thera says:

    Honey-do Truth is always funnier than fiction.

  68. paula says:

    Honey do, for sure…story of my whole entire marriage 😉

  69. Jennifer says:

    Honey Do! Perfect. Everything my honey wants to repair must involve a CNC machine or some other overly complicated proceedure or it won’t get fixed. I’ll do it my fucking self then. The cougar was funny though!

  70. Jeanne says:

    I’m not much of a honey-doer, so the cougar is pretty funny…we occasionally have them roaming around near town (meaning in the suburbs – and there is the joke), so cougar jokes are pretty common at our house.

  71. Nan Tee says:

    Honey-do, definitely. 🙂

  72. Leslie says:

    Yeah … Honey Do for sure.

  73. Jan In Waterdown says:

    OK so maybe I’m not normal (whatever that is) but the cougar one sure made me chuckle and the other one I’ve never experienced since my guy makes his own list and it’s sooo much longer than anything I would ever do! And he gets it done too. I’m the lazy procrastinating slob in our relationship. Oh dear did I finally admit that? In writing? oy

  74. Valerie says:


    Vacuum in the nude; especially comfortable for menopausal women.

  75. Lynn says:

    Wow Karen!, look at the pot you stirred!!

  76. shauna says:

    Honey Do but I skip the “honey” and just write To Do lists for both of us… then the shit gets done. : )

  77. hahahahaha. Enjoy what is left of your long weekend Karen! Cheers.

  78. Brenda J. Moore says:

    There is something about a bit of sunshine that makes people just plain LOOPY!
    Public nudity and cussing belong in the home.
    Well posted Karen.

  79. Nancy Blue Moon says:

    HONEY DO FOR SURE..Reality!!!

  80. JBab says:

    The Honey-Do List is it! That is so true!

  81. Langela says:

    Cougar! Very funny! My Honey does more than I do. He’s amazing! And he actually remembers my list and does it better than me most of the time. The rest of the time (basically cleaning) I’m just glad it’s done and don’t care if I do it better.

  82. I am a big fan of the cougar only because I dont find the fact that I have to do most things myself funny. Specifically I have pnomnia and nothing got cleaned or done while I was sick and hubs was here. I was even out trying to edge my garden today with a slight fever because I am behind and shit doesn’t get done if I dont do it…. sorry for the vent.

  83. Carol says:

    Honey do definately. The other one makes me think of PETA and all of there antics. And PETA pisses me off!

  84. Maureen Locke says:

    I think the Honey Do one is the funniest.. by far.
    The Cougar one is only kind of funny to me. 🙂

  85. janpartist says:

    Honey-Do! If it can’t be fixed with Gorilla Glue, Round-up, or duct tape then he can’t begin to give me a hand, I never bother asking. PS-I even use Gorilla Glue better!!

  86. nancy says:

    Well, the Honey Do part used to be 200% true, but my new improved husband is the best. He gets more stuff done and done better, faster, neater and cleaner than me and it’s (usually) fun. I did have to explain how to use Gorilla Glue this past weekend.
    Happy Holiday!!!

  87. Barbara says:

    OMG Honey Do all the way….

  88. Elizabeth Durham says:

    Honey- do. Hands down. The other has been popping up on my Facebook page- but, that’s not a cougar, just a cougar cub.

  89. Vicki says:


  90. Nicki Woo says:

    When I saw the first pic, I thought no way is the second gonna be funnier than the first.

    But I gotta say, you’ve outdone yourself. Honey Do hit the ball straight out of the park!

  91. Shauna says:

    I think they’re both pretty dang funny, but the Honey-Do is true and therefore more funny. Plus, that is not a cougar! That little whipper snapper is the kind of little harpey that pisses off the cougars. Just sayin’.

  92. Chau says:


  93. sherri says:

    I’m a sucker for puns, so absolutely the cougar. It did seem a bit apples to oranges comparison…pun vs funny motto on life….but either way, the cougar (and the cougar wannabe running through the meadow) made me SMILE!

  94. steven says:

    naked chick. naked always wins, but i’m a dude.

  95. Bernard says:

    e-Card wins hands down in the bear-laugh category;
    Naked wins the “Hmmmm, you don’t look old enough to be a cougar, so I’ll need to some identification when you find your pants” category; as well as the, “Dayummmn! That does not look comfortable for the sensitalia” category.
    As for the kitten, well – I actually prefer puppies. With floppy ears. But a nice lead-in for the oh so young cougar-to-be.

  96. Honey -do, although I pay a handyman to do!

  97. Laurinda says:

    Definitely the Honey Do- it’s so us!

  98. Linda says:

    Getting naked and swearing always works with hubby. I can just imagine the look on his and the neighbors face if I were naked in a tree…Gawd!

  99. Diane Amick says:

    Sorry, my vote goes to cougar. I am one of the most fortunate females alive in that my honey-do list always gets done by honey. I’ve been training him for 44 years next month, and we have a great system worked out…I write it on his To-Do list in his 3 1/2 soon to be 4 1/2 bay workshop and then don’t mention it again. He does get to it…sometimes eventually, but that’s OK. I number things so he knows which are priorities for me and then I leave it alone. So far this system is working for me (and him). He’s great at laundry and loading the dishwasher too – not so much putting clean dishes away, but I’m happy!!!

  100. Stephbo says:

    I laughed out loud at the cougar. The honey-do list is too true to be funny for me. Still working on training him.

  101. ~JackieVB says:

    Honey-Do – it’s my credo!
    Thanks for the nudity warning – I was getting my morning fix at work today and I decided to stop at the cute kitten. Glad I did.

  102. Mindy says:

    Hands down honey-do. I was workin’ on that list today, as a matter of fact. I painted the fucking house. And porch. And doors. Uh huh. And guess what. It got done the right way in my time frame. Amazing how that works.

  103. Rhonda Smartypants says:

    Karen: Same vote as you; same reason.

  104. Dan says:

    Was the top picture taken of you before you became a blonde?

    It looks like you were exhausted after working on your kitchen and need to just hang around! 🙂

  105. Linda S. in NE says:

    Honey-do is funnier in my opinion.

  106. Robin says:

    Honey-do…just because it is so true and always the way it seems to be!

  107. Bethany says:

    Honey-do for sure! It’s funny because it’s true ;0)

  108. Sam says:

    I haven’t got a ‘honey’ (when I did, I had the honey-do list as they were useless guys) but loved the cougar. My nearly 14 year old son is sitting next to me and laughed outright at it so I’m afraid Cougar gets my vote xxx

  109. Lyn says:

    I love them both, the cougar is funny and the honey do is sad but true. Now, as to cussing, I guess I swear too much because I had to scroll back up to read again when I realized I didn’t see any cussing, duh!

  110. Get the shit done myself fo’ sho. i only put things I don’t ever want to happen on the honey do list.

  111. Oh, and that chick looks to be in her early thirties…. Maybe. A cougar she is not.
