GAWKER: All Cats Are Muslim
“There are a few rules most of us know to be true. You stop at a red light, chicken is not meant to be consumed raw, Tony Hawk is a cool dude, and all cats are Muslim (ACAM). Pépito the cat? Muslim. The aristocats? Probably from Dubai. Hasbulla’s cat? Obviously Muslim. Jorts and Jeans? Muslim. The internet is filled with images and videos of cats on prayer matscats reading and refusing to walk on the Quran, as well as cats dressed up in little cute Eid outfits.”
