Feb 12 2008Samurai Armor For Man's Best Friend Is Old


So I find out several days after the sweet cat and mouse armor that pet armor has actually been around for quite some time. Exhibit A: Samurai dog armor, circa 1800. It likely belonged to a high-ranking samurai and includes such quality materials as "chanfron armor, doeskin leather, silk brocade, a hand-carved wooden mask and gold leaf." I will admit it looks pretty good, but let's get real -- a dog would look foolish in this outfit. But cats are a completely different story. It's like in the book of Genesis when God is making everything.

On the sixth day God created animals and he said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and cats. You heard me, cats. And I want them to have some sweet freaking armor. Oh yeah, now I'm talking. Battle cats baby!" And God saw that it was good. Especially the armored cats. He loved them the most.

See, straight from the Bible people, you can't argue with that.

Nice, very handy in South East London

See, this is why I like K-Fed. He, very very much like the Geekmeister, creates his own reality where stuff happens just because he says it does. Like when K-Fed was describing his rap album of a couple years ago he said "I'm a little bit Gangsta, I'm a little bit Down South" - created reality.

I wonder how impervious to outside forces of destruction Mr. Geeks' reality is? K-Fed's reality can stand up to Britney with an umbrella. That's serious armor baby.

LOL ...those samurai dogs have to have some protection against those NInja cats back in the days......

My turtle owns all. He's a Jedi Master.


Oh and #2, no one cares about this K-Fed person. If you were trying to make a point, someone of more importance should have been used, like Chuck Norris.

ninja cats...ha.
