Argh my eyes

It's been a little quiet around here lately. I'm getting married next month, so I've been a bit distracted from things bloggy. Archaeopop will be back in full effect sometime in September.

In the meantime let me scar your retinas with this! (Daily Mirror, via Cracked).

Still dazed after being anaesthetised for three hours, a pedigree pet is hauled upright to show off its new tattoo. The controversial “body enhancement” was carried out on Mickey – a rare Canadian Hairless breed also known as a Sphynx cat. His female owner was said to be delighted with the Tutankhamun design inked on to his chest at a tattoo parlour.
She said: “I wanted something new and different for the times we live in.” But horrified animal rights campaigners last night slammed the sick fad in Moscow as barbaric – and fear it could catch on among wealthy pet owners in the West.
It's a Sphynx cat. Get it? Get it? Sphinx? Like the Egyptian thing? Yeah!


  1. this is fucking disgusting

  2. Congratulations and Good Luck on your marriage. You may find marriage a little more complicated than blogging.

    Best wishes, Kwame

  3. Thanks for the kind wishes, Dr. Opuku. I'm hoping to find beauty in the complexity. I'd be disappointed if blogging was the easier of the two!

  4. ...or start a blog about being married??? Just to make things doubly complex.

    Congrats, and looking forward to more posts soon!

  5. you're fucking seek, you bloody animal abuser. i hope you'll tatoo your small child on the face. fuck you you seek bastard

  6. Dear Anonymous, I hope you realize that's not my cat.

  7. Comment s'en prendre à un pauvre animal sans défense, qui n'a rien demandé!
    J'espère au moins que Toutânkhamon se déchaînera sur ce tatoueur sans aucune valeur morale pour s'attaquer à un être plus petit que lui... Gros connard.

  8. Poor tortured creature! This can not be legal! If you know the owner give him a fucking kick in the arse and report this sick action to the police!
