Late Night Open Thread: Fat Cats and Money for NothingPosted: May 1, 2012
Hey, hope you are having a pleasant evening! I’ve got a few quick items for you tonight as I work on tomorrow morning’s post.
Fat Cats aren’t always on Wall Street, as this clip from Anderson Cooper shows:
Chances are, you think the comic strip Garfieldis one of the funniest things in the world. Why wouldn’t you? I mean, anyone with a newspaper subscription and a heart loves Garfield. But did you know that feline obesity is not funny at all? It’s a serious problem. Which is why Anderson Cooper was joined today on his daytime show by Meow, a 37-pound cat who can barely walk. Because nothing says serious topic like watching a news anchor attempting to juggle a cat the size of a sack of potatoes.
Meow is a rescue cat from Santa Fe and, as the shelter worker explained, 37 pounds for a cat basically equals out to a 600-pound man.
Not only is he (Yes, it’s a boy. Although Cooper had a hard time telling, likening the cat to SNL‘s Pat character) horribly unhealthy. He was also forced to make his big TV debut on a Monday. And fat cats hate Mondays!
A lot of Fat Cats on TV today…Check this out:

It sure is taking Newt a long time to say goodbye, but that is what he was doing today…things must be pretty bad, his snazzy purple tie is a bit crumpled, and that banner looks like a million dollars. /snark.
Seriously, what is with the pathetic streamers on that thing?
Then again, some Fat Cat’s have the means to be a little more fashionable, and that includes their wives. This is the outfit Ann Romney wore today at some TV interview:
Today Mitt and Ann Romneyappeared on CBS‘s This Morning to talk about Barack Obama,Osama bin Laden, and a slew of other political things. Sharp eyes over at The Cut noticed that Ann was wearing a bird-printed t-shirt by Reed Krakoff.
Naturally, we had to get the scoop on the price. According to a saleswoman at Krakoff’s Madison Avenue store, the silk tee costs $990.
That about covers two months rent for me!
This is an open thread, have at it…
