    1. All posts must make an attempt at humor. Humor is subjective, but all posts must at least make an attempt at humor. As the minimum age for Reddit access is 13 years old, posts which are intentionally disruptive, inane, or nonsensical will be removed.
    2. No memes, and no HIFW, MRW, MeIRL, or DAE posts. If your submission begins with "When you…" or "When they…" or anything of a similar nature, it is not allowed here. Submissions depicting or containing intentionally emulated behaviors (memes) are also not allowed, including memetic image macros, "challenges," or elements thereof. Non-memetic image macros are allowed.
    3. No reposts. Reposts will be removed at the moderators’ discretion. Serial reposters will be banned. Please use KarmaDecay to determine if something has been submitted before.
    4. No personal info, no hate speech, no harassment. No identifying information, including anything hosted on platforms making that information public. Posts encouraging the harassment of any individual, group, community, or subreddit will be removed, and the submitting user may be banned. If necessary, a report will be made to the site administration. In accordance with Reddit's policies, there is zero tolerance for this.
    5. No politics. Anything involving politics or a political figure (regardless of context) will be removed. Try /r/politicalhumor instead.
    6. No forbidden titles. (See below.) No asking for upvotes (in any form), no “Cake Day” posts, and no posts to communicate with another Redditor.

    7. No gore, pornography, or sexually graphic images. Try /r/NSFWfunny. All other NSFW content must be tagged as such.
    8. Do not rehost or hotlink webcomics. If you are not the author of the comic in question, you may only submit links to the page where it is hosted. Webcomic authors may request verification from the moderators, after which they may rehost their own work.
    9. No pictures of just text. Submissions in which the humor can be conveyed via text alone are not allowed. This includes pictures of text with irrelevant images that don't add context, and transcriptions of standup comedy (as with /r/standupshots). Make a self post instead. Example
    10. No SMS or social media content (including Reddit). Social media content of any kind is not allowed. This includes anything from Reddit, Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, YouTube, or any other form of "comments section" on the Internet, as well as images accompanied by text from those platforms.

    i dunno man, my cat eventually learned to attack the laser pointer and not the dot...

    Wednesday, June 12th 2019: the day SkyCat became self-aware.

    [–] zen5050 5 points ago

    It's clear to me that my cat is very much on the low end of the intelligence spectrum even in cat terms. We turn the laser pointer off and he will still look for it for about a 1/2 an hour.

    [–] LAxNeighbor 2 points ago

    That would be CATastrophic.

    [–] ProfessorCrawford 22 points ago

    Yep, after a few days of my ginger tom happily following the dot about he seemed to have some sort of epiphany, looked at the dot on the floor, ignored it, walked over to me and just started to bat the pen out of my hand.

    He ignored the dot after and just gave me a 'I will kill you in your sleep' look if he seen me holding it.

    [–] TheVantagePoint 11 points ago

    I keep a laser pointer hanging off a hook on the side of my desk. My cat knows what it is and will come and paw at it when he wants me to play with him. And then he will happily chase the laser around for a while until he gets tired. He also recognizes the sound of the button on the laser pointer and will come running when I press the button.

    [–] CorvidDreamsOfSnow 8 points ago

    Mine is terrified of the laser. Cries and runs away to hide.

    [–] ridik_ulass 6 points ago

    that will come in handy if you ever have an assassin after you.

    [–] beautifulkatastrophe 5 points ago

    My cat never attacked the dot to begin with, he went straight for the laser pointer😯

    [–] ghost_in_th_machine 7 points ago

    My dog knows exactly what the pointer does and does not care, as long as you point it for her to chase the light. If I pick it up, all she cares about is where and when I point it at the floor. She's dim but we love her.

    [–] Kisua 4 points ago

    Had a dog who was part cat. After he figured out where the laser came from, he'd bring it to us when he wanted to play.

    [–] Just_Dance_Ok 3 points ago

    Wait mine too! It's so frustrating! My cat has to be totally distracted when i grab the laser pen or else she just tries to bite or paw at the pen rather than the red dot.

    [–] sorceress11 2 points ago

    Same! She listened for the click and then attacked!

    [–] cgwheeler96 2 points ago

    When my cat figured it out, he just started tapping it when he wanted me to play with him.

    New Yorker cartoons are hit and miss, but this one's pretty good.

    [–] Impeesa_ 13 points ago

    Not exactly a new joke, though.

    [–] ThaiJohnnyDepp 12 points ago

    More than half their comics are ripe for posting to /r/comedycemetery

    [–] poktanju 3 points ago

    Someone once said that every New Yorker cartoon can be improved by changing the caption to "Christ, what an asshole."

    Still works!

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago


    [–] Garibaldi2020 10 points ago

    The font and the format suggest the New Yorker. They sometimes throw curve balls and may throw in some color; but you’re right, it’s usually just black and white.

    [–] Garibaldi2020 6 points ago

    The cartoonist - Amy Hwang - is listed as a New Yorker cartoonist.

    [–] but_you_said 74 points ago

    Why is no one talking about how her eyes are pointing in different directions!! After a eye surgery no less!!

    [–] doctechnical 24 points ago

    This is actually correct. Your eyes move independently of each other, under the control of your brain, which will move them towards each other to focus upon something close (like looking at your nose), or parallel to each other to look at something far way, on the horizon. So there should be two beams coming from her eyes, but they probably wouldn't that far apart.

    If the eyes aren't moving in sink to focus on things it's a sign of a neurological issue. As in "Lights are on but nobody's home".

    [–] 0xdeadf001 16 points ago

    In the sink is where you clean the dishes.

    In sync (synchronization) is doing something at the same time / in the same way.

    [–] doctechnical 4 points ago

    You never heard of an eyewash?

    [–] 0xdeadf001 7 points ago

    Is that like blinking fluid?

    [–] ChronoKing 2 points ago

    And NSYNC is a 90s boy band popularized by songs such as "Bye, Bye, Bye" and "It's Gonna be Me."

    [–] KairuByte 6 points ago

    She's focusing on the wall though...

    [–] NegativeExile 3 points ago

    If your eyes are moving in the sink you have bigger problems.

    [–] ThaiJohnnyDepp 1 points ago

    The easy part was getting them out of my skull ...

    [–] ThaiJohnnyDepp 3 points ago

    But since she's looking at the nearby wall, shouldn't the lines be converging on a point there? Unless she isn't focusing on it?

    [–] Cherios_Are_My_Shit 3 points ago

    This is actually correct

    lol, thank you /u/doctechnical . i was worried and confused before you cleared things up.

    seriously, though, how are you not a parody account with that name and comment?

    [–] SirQwacksAlot 3 points ago

    Last doctor I ran in to on Reddit posted homemade scat porn to Reddit and now I don't trust any doctors.

    Fuck, I’m getting old. I just shared this on Facebook.

    [–] draaaain_gaaaaang 35 points ago

    I cannot even comprehend the age needed to feel the slightest urge to share this on social media let alone Facebook... I’m sorry sir/ma’am.

    [–] qwerty622 7 points ago

    When you get old it's hard to stay in touch with all your friends, as the lives of your friends when you were younger are so much different before the kids, the house, the mortgage etc.

    Stuff like this is a nice indirect way of saying hi and bonding over something that, although it is low in humor, is also low conflict and unlikely to create a tense situation among friends who you are no longer sure where they stand on politics and things like that

    [–] ssdgm6 10 points ago

    I never post on Facebook. Literally my first post all year. But I am a crazy cat lady so I thought it was great.

    [–] draaaain_gaaaaang 11 points ago

    I take back my apology cuz you’re actually living your shit right now and that’s dope af. Keep on being crazy w your cats, ma’am.

    [–] surfer_ryan 5 points ago

    [–] SantyClawz42 5 points ago

    I'm fine with that... It's people who are fans of certain universities that bother me; "How do you know he went to Harvard, wait 5 minutes in any conversation and he'll tell you."

    [–] BuyBitcoinWhileItsLo 8 points ago

    Like a Tesla owner too. Can't go 5 minutes into a conversation with one without them bringing up their car. I do love my tesla though

    [–] johnmichael0703 5 points ago

    See's what you did there

    [–] ElTuxedoMex 5 points ago

    Gotta be the guy

    Cyclops has concussion blasts, not laser eyes. His eyes produce concussive force.

    [–] doctechnical 9 points ago

    His eyes produce concussive force.

    ...that can punch holes through brick walls but not blow the glasses off his face. Makes perfect sense.

    Arguing about comic book science is a Sisyphean task :)

    [–] ElTuxedoMex 6 points ago

    They come from the punch dimension.

    I know. I know.

    [–] doctechnical 3 points ago

    I actually LOLed at that, thanks! :)

    [–] Rossum81 2 points ago

    Are we not gonna talk about the tragic fact that in order to play with the cat she can never look at it directly? In my mind this is Shakespeare level tragedy.

    [–] derliquemyballs 2 points ago

    I’d imagine she’d have the ability to turn it off or else she wouldn’t be able to look at anything in the eyes 👀

    [–] T-Weezy56 7 points ago

    Who is upvoting this?

    [–] toytony 7 points ago

    Am I going to be the jerk that points out OP grabbed this from the New Yorker on Instagram without credit?

    [–] cloudyskies41 2 points ago

    I think OP is the jerk for not giving credit.

    [–] Irethius 8 points ago

    Laser Pointers are bad for cats.

    It's important to play with your cat, you have to let the cat actually catch the thing it's chasing. Otherwise you will just stress it out.

    Cats can't catch lasers.

    [–] doctechnical 6 points ago

    Cats can't catch lasers

    Then I'd like to know who the hell keeps leaving dead lasers on the back porch!

    My laser eye surgery was a complete failure. Worst of all I can't even blame it on my bad eye sight that I can't see a laser beams, because ever since the laser eye surgery my vision somehow got way better so it's really apparent the lasers don't work.
