040Don’t you love when you’re just sitting there spacing out in chemistry lecture and a cat jumps up onto a desk? We do.

Freshman Sandon Griffin, the owner of the cat, proceeded to take out his spray bottle to give his kitten water and feed it. “He’s 9 weeks old so I thought he was too young to leave at home,” said Griffin. If you were wondering, the cat’s name is Mr. McGrizz.

This wasn’t the only strange item the Clog observed in lecture halls today. read more »

This week’s sign of the apocalypse is not exactly apocalyptic in and of itself, per se, but its implications could shake the very foundations of science and call into question everything we’ve ever known. Yes, gravity itself may no longer be the force of nature it once was.

Earlier this week, a Manhattan cat slunk out a window to paw its way around the ledge–as cats are prone to do–only to find itself plummeting 26 stories to a balcony far, far below. Miraculously, this story does not end with a cat splat; read more »


Don't step on me, plz!

Want to hear something absolutely terrible?  No, seriously. Awful.  OK–but don’t say we didn’t warn you.  So this guy in Redwood City just got sentenced to a year in jail because he literally stomped a kitten to death. We know, right?

Its name was Pucci.  It was four months old.  It belonged to the perpetrator’s roommate’s 4-year-old daughter. It was probably really fricking adorable. And this dude, Jesus Calderon-Franco, chucked it off the balcony and then proceeded to step on it repeatedly.  God, if this is a masturbation revenge killing, the Clog would like to respectfully request that you think of a more humane way of going about things.  Thank you.

And you thought Myspace was the place for creepy friends.

34-year-old man in England has been jailed for killing his wife.

Motive: Victim switched her Facebook relationship status to “single.”

The woman was this crazed fellow’s wife. It was a predictable formula for disaster: marriage goes on the rocks, man moves out, man consumes alcohol and cocaine, woman logs on to Facebook. What normal cross-faded person wouldn’t commit acts of sadism and mutilation after seeing that little broken heart icon?
