Cuddles posted on the pet hates thread. Cats - concise to the point and a pun - scores on all counts. Of course every man hates cats. Not only are we men but we're testosterone fuelled steely-eyed death dealers ready to kill all the menfolk and reep our reward among the maidens just grateful to have a real man with real manstink to save them. A dog is man's natural companion. A dog can lick its bits, something almost all of wish we could do. Those who don't wish they could do it are those freaks that actually can! A dog will scratch its arrse then sniff the carpet where he dragged his arrse across. A dog will have a farting competition with you and a dog, if he doesn't have the time to eat it up before your missus comes down in the morning will sit in front of your technicolor yawn and look sheepish, thus taking the heat off number 1. Dogs are ace, they'll even try to mount your new girlfriend the first time you bring her home. They'll shove their beak up any skirt and into any crotch to find out what's good and what isn't. Whereas a cat (or even a dog the same size as a cat) is for gays. It preens itself all day and is picky about its food. It doesn't fart and it would turn it's nose up at stomach trawl. Guy Gibson VC had a dog (embarrassingly called Nigger) but can you imagine a VC winner having a cat called Fluffkins? No, cats are gay and have no place in the Army other than as ratters. The Army must approve of dogs otherwise you wouldn't have Wardog Units, Police Dogs and Rescue Dogs, all good manly pursuits, indeed every officer in the 70s was issued with a G10 Golden Retriever to go in their issue red Golf GTI so dogs must be in, in the Army. So, is there any girlie men out there that are going to try to persuade us all that cats are a man's pet or has Cuddles got it right?
