Spike conspicuously obstructing the view of the cricket

Will writes:

“This was my cat Spike’s response to my entire attention being focused on the cricket last night.”

You aren't transparent

For the sake of clarify, we should point out that ‘last night’ wasn’t the highlights of Canada v Kenya, it was during the Ashes.

  1. This would make more sense if the last night in question was the highlights of Canada v Kenya.

    Is “for the sake of clarify” a new portmanteau phrase, KC? I ratehr like it.

    Very fine looking stack of technical gadgets underneath your TV Will. Well done.

      Balls. Shall we leave it? We know how much you all love our typos.

    • Typo! That’s not what we pay you for.

    • Not sure about the pattern on the armchair though.

    • It is a fine array of gadgets but one of them is clearly a VHS player, likely not to have been used to record an Ashes series since 1998. From this we can imply that Will generally puts the collection of gadgets underneath his television as a higher priority than what said gadgets actually do.

    • D Charlton, we pay them?

  2. Is your cat bi-polar

  3. the question is, who is batting?
    the all-important arse area is obscured.
    but i would hazard a guess at collingwood.

  4. Thank Christ for that. It was only the Ashes. I’m not sure what I would do to a cat that tried to stop me from watching Canada v Kenya.

  5. That looks like the right arm of Wing Commander Strauss to me.

  6. First thing. Excellent, a cat at last.

    Second thing. ‘During the ashes’. What? You’ve had this photo for months and done nothing about it?

    Who’s to blame? Will or KC?

    Will? Somehow? Even though he sent the picture months ago?

    Speaking of odd question mark usage, on our Cricinfo article ‘Why England lost to Ireland’, someone has left a comment that reads ‘Why England lost to Ireland?’

    Think it’s intended as a correction. We hope it is. We like to apply question intonation to any statement beginning with a ‘why’, ‘where’ or ‘what’.

    • IMplied words should be SUPplied. To avoid any confusion, the headline should have read:

      The Text that Follows is an Article Discussing the Matter of Why England Lost to Ireland.

      Cricinfo is the world’s leading source of COMPUTERISED CRICKET STATISTICS. In future, please have these three words at the front of your mind when writing for a Cricinfo audience.

  8. You stay classy San Diego. I’m Ron Burgundy?
