Hey Cat! Why are you throwing up?

Dr. Robert Driscoll sent me this photo of his cat. Thank him.
So I made this song for that feline.

Listen Here!

Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?
Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?

I know you think itís awesome
That you ate a day old opossum
Itís like an alienís inside you
And everyday you have the flu

Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?
Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?

are you puking up some vicodin?
Are you sick because youíre full of sin
Is the devil in your head
Did you throw up in my bed?

Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?
Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?

Maybe you should talk to jesus
I think he talks to cats
Iíll try to get him on the phone
Because youíre driving me bats

Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?
Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?

You donít have any thumbs
Yet youíre gacking up my rum
Howíd you open up the bottle
Iíd like to give your head a throttle

Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?
Hey cat! (hey cat hey cat)
Why are you throwing up?

you are so gross, but cj totally loves this one. she wants to lick the screen and then spew a big dusty hairball into the shag carpet.

thanks for brightening up jury duty - the people of sandy eggo applaud your audacity. i for one have little faith in our "justice" system today and plan to end up in contempt before 4pm.

send bail money please.

I thought about this picture this afternoon as I was walking along 33rd street in NYC and saw a woman throwing up on the sidewalk next to the post office. I wanted to say "Hey Lady, why are you throwing up?" but I didn't.
