I trust this is sufficient. Thank you and see you tomorrow.
ScamperBeats is the name of my next band.
Excellent name. Fixed the headline nevertheless.
I am beginning to think the kittens are a cunning plan to reduce the amount of posts you need to write. Adorable nonetheless.
Kittens + Box = hours of fun
You have satisfied my need for cute kittens playing in a Coke Zero box. Carry on.
It is. And thank you!
This is hilarious. Who would’ve thought two kittens could have bought this much time for ya. Sugar ‘n Spice FTW!
I have died of The Cute. I am now dead. I hope you’re proud.
Purrrfect – exactly what I needed. Thank you!
That’ll do. Thanks!
Dude, they’ve grown a bunch.
Sugar’s stripes seem to vary in intensity depending on the lighting – here they look kinda pale, but in other photos they’re very distinct.
Your offering will suffice for today.
Ohio has just been bombed with live cuteness. Perpetrator and local crank, John Scalzi, asserted that “as God is my witness, I thought kittens could fly.” No comment from Coke Zero on any rumors that the two parties are associated in dubious publicity schemes. More on this developing story in the 11:00 report.
Is that Sugar, no wait, Spice in your Coke Zero? Either way doesn’t that defeat the purpose of Coke Zero? Ohhh, I think the purpose of that drink & box is to give us cute pictures of Sugar & Spice. Thanks, now I can go to sleep with warm thoughts of cuteness. What is another word for cuteness…brain too tired to think…zzzzzzzz
Ooh, zee carbonated beverage units the hew-monz consume in mass quantities! We must investigate all zee possibilities!
Ooh, Yaass, but zere are no al-yoo-min-i-um cans of fizzy beverage. No fizz for our fur! It is a twavesty!
— Why weren’t they looking into pumpkin pies? You know, namesake and all that?
The Buckeye Newshawk Award should be going out to somebody for that one!
Crumpled up balls of foil … rings from milk containers … the odd ping-pong ball … feathers from a hookless fishing lure, on a string, from the end of a stick.
Expensive cat toys … mewf …
Taking into account previous posts about how cats around the Salzi compound tend to be outdoor, working cats, this might not apply. Still, this is kind of a cool idea (URL not representative of content!): http://www.explodingkittens.com/kittyconvict
You should fail to get your act together to update earlier in the day more often. ;-)
For Future Reference – This is a suitable substitute for thoughtful blogs when your brain hurts.
You’re getting lazy. Cute kittens don’t cut the mustard when sitting on a train wanting something intelligent to read. Entertain me damn it!
BTW, how much is Coke sponsoring you for given the GRATUITOUS free advertising you’re giving them… Cute kittens, coke zero…hmmmm…..
Dwight: the lines around these comments represent the real walls we will get someday.
You’re an evil man, getting kittens hooked on Coke Zero that young.
NO! Not sufficient. I demand video!
More than sufficient. :)
You can tell they’re already starting to grow up!
If you posted a video of the one in the box going nuts when you scratch the outside of the box I think you’d be all set for the weekend at least.
Ah, but what’s the kittens’ cut of the sponsorship dough, huh? And did they work it so they get more than Scalzi? I mean, it could be hard to say no to that level of cuteness. So, 1/3 for each kitten, 1/3 for Scalzi? What? No sponsor moola? Aw, too bad. Well, we’ll just have to settle for cute kitten foo, then.
Nawww they’re so cute! literally died a bit inside
Scamperbeasts – I love it
You should find a way to repurpose this in one of you upcoming books.
Coke Zero? They’re now Artificial Sweeteners & Spice.
Tamora Pierce says, “You know, those kittens are going to GROW into those paws…!”
Ha ha! Phase One of Scalzi’s master plan for Cuteness Domination of the World is revealed: Have the Scamperbeasts challenge Maru the Cat for squeezing into box cuteness.
Alternately, I am still puzzling out how Spice managed to fit into the Coke Zero box. Is the kitten a lot smaller IRL or verrry flexible?
@ Peter: Is the kitten a lot smaller IRL or verrry flexible?
Do you not grok that every feline is a TARDIS??
You really need to stop drinking the coke. It rots your teeth, all that acid. You should drink Monster Energy drinks. Much better for you.
@ Dwight Williams, I greatly approve of the WKAR in Cincinnati reference.
This scientific study clearly demonstrates that only 50% of kittens think outside the box.
