I'll take the goldfish any day, but these cats are a real hoot.

I wouldn't want to scare the water out of a goldfish by walking it around...  I'll take a dog; regular, good ol' dog.  I thought about choosing the cat-eating dog, but then i figured that would be the only way a dog would get a hairball, so I wouldn't want to wish that on my dog or have to clean up, after.

If the dog could kill pandas, then I'd be ok with that as a value-added feature.  But not eat them; that's one big stinking greasy smelly furball to choke down.  Same criteria, as far as the not-wishing/no cleanup please factor.

I don't know if cats can be a Hoot.  I guess Hoot is a hoot, but I'll try to view that in awhile.  Every time I get a "Hey, look at this cat video" I usually find it involves cats, and who wants to go there... 

Ace; I'd be a fan of cats, if I could get them to hang onto the blades...

I selected 'Dogs that eat cats' only because 'Dogs that eat Rednecks' wasn't an option.  Fido has been acquiring a taste for "Southern BBQ."

Shoot, now the panda-eating dog option is there but I already voted.  Dangit.  This is just like the primaries, where the Indiana dang vote is gonna be too late to even count for anything.  Or Michigan, where it was too early. 

Make sure Fido doesn't swallow them.

Ace; this is so many shades of wrong.

Darn it. I thought this was a pop quiz.

Dogs that eat cats are fine by me, as well as cats that eat dogs. Even dogs that eat dogs are acceptable.

Scuzzy; I'd like to pop Ace a few times.

In this poll you can change your vote.  Only one will count at a time.

I saw on the TV the other day that if the Dem primaries go down to the wire, with no clear winner, we in Michigan and those in Florida may get to vote again and have it count, I doubt that will happen though.

'Round my neck o' the woods, people get to vote again, and again, and  until they run out of dollar bills.

Bill; broke now.

Thanks, Pat.  I revoted.  I thought about revolting, too, but figured to take it one step at a time.  I don't know if I'd want to get thrown into voting with Florida, with their history of malfeasance.

You know, voting on a Saturday really does make sense, as far as availability of folks to do it, instead of a weekday workday.  Although when I worked for the state I got election day off; that was pretty sweet for 5 minutes of "work."  Shoot, they oughta just do it like this poll, where you can just click your answer from your computer and be done with it.

Of course, with my computing skills I'd probably click and get an "unknown device" pop up and try to switch my candidate's BIO and have to vote in SafeMode and just pick a Green party candidate, or something.

Or see a choice for "Barack Osama Obama BinLaden" and say "Yeah, that's the guy I was thinking of."

Ace; another option would be for the candidates to appear in Call of Duty...
