StraussCat being conspicuously indifferent to Graeme Smith’s retirement

Lemon Bella writes:

As is customary at times like this, cricketing greats of the past must come out of the woodwork to pass opinion on the breaking news of the day. Therefore I found it necessary to consult StraussCat regarding the retirement of Graeme Smith.

He wasn’t particularly interested when I told him the news, but his indifference reached a peak when I showed him all my match tickets from the summer Indian Skimmer and I spent following Graeme Smith around England.

Possibly a hint of distaste?

Look! There’s even a South African lanyard he could have played with, but he chose to ignore it.

He got up and walked away when I told him that the Test match ticket was for the day before Graeme scored his awesome 154 to win the series.

  1. It’s no surprise StraussCat is indifferent to the workmanlike (some might say dull) Graeme Smith, as the photo clearly shows him to be a risk-taker, a devil-may-care adrenaline junkie who lives only for the thrill of the now.

    Look at him! He’s sat behind a door that could open at any moment, causing all manner of minor injuries! But is he concerned with such things? No – his James Dean insouciance says otherwise. Graeme Smith would not interest the likes of him, but I’ll wager he was fired with a deep existential rage when Pietersen was sacked. Perhaps it is this inner rage that is leading him down the nihilistic path he seems hell-bent on.

  2. Does Strausscat have no heart?! That was the summer that turned around my opinion of Graeme Smith from dislike to admiration.

    • Me too. God that summer hurt. You lose to South Africa AND you realise Graeme Smith is alright. Bad times.

    • It’s a point of contention given my long term love of Graeme Smith.

  3. That carpet needs a hoover. Seems to be a theme ….

  4. Huzzah for indifferent cats.

    Far too much actual cricket around here lately, if you ask me.

    Which I now realise you didn’t.

  5. By the looks of it, I’d guess Strausscat would be conspicuously indifferent to everything except food.

  6. I saw a cat get run over this morning.

  7. I’m not a fan of cats. Indifferent or not.

  8. Onion, you’re being conspicuously indifferent to strausscat.

  9. Who cares about Graeme Smith when you’ve StraussCat to admire. And StraussCat obviously agrees. It’s a clear-cut case of lack of empathy for the departing leader, a classic sign of narcissism. Or should I say, narcisspussy.
