Best. Instrument. Ever. During my Internet travels last night, I stumbled across this Neatorama post from 2006 about the katzenklavier, or cat piano.  “It consists of a line of cats fixed in place with their tails stretched out underneath a keyboard. Nails would be placed under the keys, causing the cats to cry out in pain when a key was pressed. The cats would be arranged according to the natural tone of their voices.”  [Wikipedia]

BAM. Yesterday I complained that the hilarious “Community” preview featuring Ken Jeong as Senor Chang wasn’t online yet.  Now it is.  [NBC]

202 Pictures of Awesomess. This is where I don’t understand bloggers.  Why not make it an even 200?  Wouldn’t that make more sense?  “No man, I’ve got 202.  This is all of them.”  [YepYep]

Another vote for Obama death panels! An old man looking at porn in the Apple store!  Euthanize him before he creeps more people out!  [Blog of Hilarity]

Oh fine, I’ll watch it. Another trailer for “Glee.”  Yup, it still looks funny and touching and pop music showtunes-y.  And if watching this show makes me gay, well, hand me some leather chaps and point the way to Christopher Street.  Only God can judge me!  God, and Judge Judy.  [Best Week Ever]

Whatever. Kourtney Kardashian — the one who isn’t Kim or the giantess — is pregnant.  She’s got a new show about being in Miami with her gigantic sister, and there was another link I saw that says she makes out with a chick on the new series, but I closed that browser window and it’s really not worth digging up again.  [E!]

OOOOOH! THEM DUKE BOYS! Ten of the best jumps performed by the General Lee on “The Dukes of Hazzard.” [Epic Carnival]
