I'm far more distressed by her use of two exclamation points; c'mon, people—it's not that hard to remember the rules:

1) One for shouting,

2) Two if you're a moron,

3) Three for comic effect,

∞) And "like a gazillion" if you're a tween girl.

I can see someone who is allergic to cats being upset that a store keeps a cat. And if having a cat in the store is a violation of the health codes then you shouldn't have one there.

Just because "Aw... cat! Cute!" doesn't mean it's hygienic to have one in a deli.

The Cat isn't "making your order"; you're NOT buying this a 'Beer'; it isn't "taking your TURN!" sheesh!

The cat is preferable to mice and rats; more than once on my infrequent trips to NYC I've seen vermin just kind of wandering around a store like they owned it, and I've not selected an item from the shelf because it had rat poop on it.

Of course, with the rat problem solved we're left with the issue of the cat problem, one that's easily resolved by the children's book progression of:

monkeys --> pandas --> water buffalo --> big game hunter --> serial killer.

Diana D., who hates the cat, used two exclamation points.

But then Debbie G., who loves the cat, also used two exclamation points.

Now I don't know what side I'm on.

The internet was originally designed to maintain command and control for as long as possible during nuclear armageddon—and though the sword has been beaten into something of a plowshare it still retains the seed of evil.

Dianna D******* strikes again.

The correct answer is rubbing ones fingers together, while bending and making a lip kissing sound. After contact this can and should be follow up with 'oh yeah, you like that'.

My lover is generally choking at this point under the pretence of being allergic, but I assume she's just jealous.

So by the "Internet put her in her place", that means 10 people who gave a rats ass to comment on it, and the entirely irrelevant Yahoo news to write an article saying the whole internet put her in her place. Face!(!!)

I don't care that you don't care. A bodega is NYC's version of a convenience store, and it's not complete without a cat.

In fact, there's a Tumblr devoted to bodega cats:

Weird. What's the etymology?

Is this term common in any other region of the country?



No. A bodega is apparently a c-store that acknowledges their rat problem and takes steps.
