Dog What part of *false* wasn't clear to you?

Comment: i read the article about the missing day that scientest lately discovered. there problem still that they are unable to decide the exact time when the sun stopped. firstly i am not christian but i would really help if possible!! please tell the scientest who is working on this miracle that the if this event really happened then there is a great possiblity that it happened around 40 years after the death of the prophet Moses. just ask them to check and they will never lose anything.

Comment: The Irani yellow badge law for Jews and Christians proves that
Persians are just as stupid as arabs.

So what is the big surprise? When the Taliban was in power, they made the
Hindu's wear yellow armbands and everyone knows how sub-human the taliban
is.

Comment: In a response about Target Stores not doing this and that, it was
also stated Target was owned by a Company in France. Snopes says "False",
only a small bit of ownership by a company in France.

I was recently at a Grant Ceremony with Target employees and management,
and they "Touted" themselves as being "French Owned". They were the ones
to reveal it to me. I was quite shocked they were owned by a company in
France. I had never heard that until their own people said it.

Do you think the percentage has changed since you said "False" ? The
employees sure seemd confident they were owned by a company in France.

Comment: Your statement that Barack Obama is secretly a Muslim is
scurrilous. He's no more a Muslim than you are, or I am,and I
certainly am not. This guy goes to Church. Ya'll must be as
ignorant as Flem Snopes in Wm. Faulkner's novels. Either get
that claim off of your web page or e-mail me the proof.

If you're going to prove to all and then sundry that you can't read, at least DON'T SHOUT ABOUT IT FROM THE ROOFTOPS!

Hello Kitty

Comment: Why Paint Cats - this article and the photos shocked to the
bone - how can somebody waste time and money to paint quite ordinary
motifs on one of nature's most beautiful creatures? And most curious of
all - how on earth did the painter hold the cats still to paint such
meticulous works of art???? Because one thing is for sure, virtually
nobody can make a cat pose for a quick photograph, let alone stay put for
hours as a canvas!!!!!

I truly hope the painter has not DRUGGED the cats and tied them dowmn to a
table because that would be extreme animal CRUELTY!!!!!! So , I can only
conclude that all these cats - at least 99% of them - were actually
"photoshopped" and the "artist" is in fact just seeking his brief moment
of fame by showing off his freaky artwork.

I think the Humane Society should step in to check how this painter
actually works on the cats!

And I think that a Grade 2 teacher should step in to check your basic reading skills.

Comment: Whatever they use to color these cats for 3 months can't be a
healthly thing for the cats to ingest. What bothers me more than that is
the question of how they get the cats to hold still for this? Looks like
another case of humans abuse of animals.

Are Painted Cats the new Bonsai Kittens or something? No matter how much we explain that it's just a joke and the pictures aren't real, people keep insisting it's terrible cats are being abused as art.

On another messageboard I frequent, someone posted the cat pictures. The original post said "I think these are photoshopped, but cute nonetheless."

What followed was 4 pages of around 20 people saying how cute the pictures were especially since they were photoshopped, then one person saying "omg aminal cureltys is not okay guys" and then one or two people saying "no no, it's photoshopped, it's not real, you see." Repeat for four pages. So maddening.
