The FBI frowns on Kitty Porn…
Coooooool: feline porn!
Rub my stomach, plebian.
I’m watching Lions/Packers right now. One thing I find weird about cold-weather football games is that the announcers treat the weather like it’s the weirdest, quirkiest, silliest thing ever. I know it’s Green Bay and TV announcers feel obligated to talk about it, but it’s barely below freezing: not notably cold. But they can’t shut up about it. “Man, look at that snow! Look at that wind! It’s really something!” Costas and Collinsworth are from NY and OH respectively, so I assume they’re not personally impressed. So are they just pandering to the sun belt viewers or what? I don’t know, maybe I’m overthinking it.
It suits the blog so well.
A lovely cover.
Draw me like one of your French cats.
I think it’s adorable. Good job, John. My cat Popeye would’ve been Mr. June but his talent agent wanted too much.
Goody! Been waiting for news of the calendar!
@MikeJ: I’m ready for my close-up Mr DeVille…
This ain’t going to be no family friendly BJ pet calendar. Our innocent cats and dogs, hamsters and rabbits, will be debauched from coast to coast. Won’t be able to tear them away from the racy pin-ups, Pretty soon they will be hanging around the local ASPCA looking to hook up.
Shame on Cole, pet debaucher!
Unlike the card playing dogs (snore), this one has a certain animal erotic nature to it. All in all beautiful and ridiculous at the same time.
@Spaghetti Lee: yeah you hardly notice it when you are in your puffy jacket, beanie and gloves. Wait what’s that? You’re telling me they play football in Lycra and that they can’t wear wollen gloves out there?
That is hilarious. Can’t wait to see the calendar!
Also, because I am 12: “BJ calendar”. heh heh
Cat with a Purr Feeling.
Can we photoshop in a cigarette into the cat’s paws?
You people are perverts
It is why I love you

I was going to buy two so I could hang one over my desk at my job, but obviously it’s NSFW.
“Still life with stomach”
It’s like one of those old French painters, except with a cat.
Too bad it’s too late for someone to submit a pic of a macaque found wandering in the North York Ikea. Our pets dress appropriately for the weather, mind you.
Twitter people, you must follow #IkeaMonkey. Some samples:
And the capper.

Oh fuck you. That’s just wrong and evil.
@Comrade Mary: MONKEY!!
“Paint me like one of your French girls.”
Ohhhhh I am so excited!!
It’s hard to tell from the picture, but it looks like our feline friend has his leg arranged JUST SO as to avoid any full frontal. So this year’s theme is soft-core.
I see how this place rolls.
@suzanne: I think it fair to say Sister Sarah is not assisting in the layout design.
OTOH, when they’re out there in their spandex, they’re exercising vigorously, which can generate a lot of heat. When it’s right around freezing, I can work up a decent sweat by walking vigorously while wearing quite a bit less than those football players are. And when they’re not on the field, they’re allowed to wear parkas and gloves.
“BJ Calender” sounds like an Adam and Eve promotion, or something theyre sellin at Hooters…
Holy cat, that cow…uh, holy cow, a Renaissance kitteh. Very dignified, like an ancient Egyptian kitteh that might have been worshiped and stuff.
From the “are you fucking kidding me?” files:
Folks who’ve read “Cadillac Desert” will find familiar themes in this boondoggle.
Best parody of Manet’s “Olympia” ever.
I was thinking you could do a duo-tonic calendar with Cats and Zeppelins.
Fat Kitties deserve to be loved too.
@Roger Moore: keeping your heart rate up is good as you can be warm, it’s the stopping and starting that is the problem. Coupled with the fact that they would be sweaty, that would cool very quickly, parka or not. Big problem though is you fingers don’t circulate enough blood, and as a result never warm up enough…
You can’t fool me with your calendar. It’s just a recruiting tool for Obamas liberal youth FEMA army.
@trollhattan: Holy Fuck. Pumping water UP a MILE?
Egyptians got nothing on that.
@trollhattan: I think the NYT article is a little confused, since Denver isn’t in the Colorado River (of the west) basin. The Denver Post article is a little clearer on how and when water would cross the continental divide.
ETA: The NYT article doesn’t really explain that water is already transferred across the continental divide. This project would reduce that flow and potentially reverse it in really dry years west of the divide.
There are about a billion more things I need to do for the craft fair this week, but I’ve been working on it all weekend and I am officially burned out.
I may try to cut out of work early (ie 5 pm instead of 6 pm) to have more time tomorrow night.
I love the cover of the calendar.
Whose beastie is this?
Fat bottomed kitties you make the rockin world go round?
The original Batmobile is up for auction next month.

@PeakVT: what about the Munster Koach?
When I look at that pic, the first thing I think of is everyone’s favorite Bond Girl name: Pussy Galore.
Also that cat appears to be stoned.
“What if we’re all just like…pets, man.”
@Narcissus: Looks like high grade catnip to me. The cat appears to be on the downslope of the buzz.
As someone who’s been a warm clime person my entire life, I’ve learned that one thing those lifelong ice trekkers love more than anything else is to *whine* about cold weather/snow.
I see even the Balloon Juice calendar has gone Rule 34.
I may be a bad person for laughing at this.
Sales will soar because of lovely kitty on the cover.
@BGinCHI: Homage, dear boy, homage.
Great cover pic. With all the stuff going on in our life, I forgot to send in our girls this year… so, that sucks.
I just finished reading a book full of stills from the Pre-Code Era of Hollywood moviemaking. This would look right at home there.
@trollhattan: “Cadillac Desert” should be required reading for anyone filing a story on water.
Meow!! Love it!
Can you say “Well, Hellooooo Kitty!”
That belleh is begging for raspberries.
Though balloon over that cat diva, “Drink me in, folks!”
That’s a tom. He’s colored like the male equivalent of a calico.
I can’t wait. I’ve been looking and it hadn’t popped up in the store yet. I was beginning to be concerned.
Take my money!
Soon, I hope. This will be BJ calendar #3 for me. The 2012 version was even better than the 2011. Many animal lovers in my family; I think this year I should buy a few extra for Christmas…
