The Big Snark-off!

Yes, it's that time again, kiddies.

But first, let me regale my reader with some great Cat stuff.

Friday Videos: An Engineer’s Guide to Cats
from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

And speaking of cats, who knew Pope Benedict was a life-long cat lover? He's no John Paul II, but this Protestant has finally given him some points for character! Now a new book about his life has been released and, oddly, it appears to have been written by one of his cats. Which makes me wonder. Just exactly where does the Pope keep the litter box?

Library anime
from LibrarianInBlack by Sarah Houghton-Jan
"Yes, there is another library-themed anime series: Library War. The Anime News Network links to a commercial and a brief trailer for the series. I love that the series is focused on libraries battling a government that is trying to censor information...true greatness. The series debuted on Japanese television on April 10th and you can already find versions of it for (illegal) download all over the web. Not that I encourage that type of behavior. Oh no."

Did they ever find the priest? I'm worried about him.

Really. I am!
