The show is so hipster-oriented, I often have no idea what they’re talking about,. Not so much because of the social media stuff, but because of the slang used. This ignorance of course, is a product of age, which is something the show loves to make fun of. To which I say, “Just you wait!” Heck, if you don’t grow old, something’s happened—and it’s not good.
Nonetheless, I’ve learned many things from watching this show. One of which is a “furry” is a person with a fetish for dressing up like a stuffed animal, and seeking like-minded individuals for various forms of “social” intercourse. Which means, of course, there are indeed furry-dating websites. [All this makes me think I ought to change my “Furries” category here, because that is not what it refers to.]
Anyway, back to the discussion at hand.
Romeo and I were enjoying the show, he sitting on my lap. One of the night’s topics was “Pet or Furry.” In this game the host readsa description from a real “ad” on either Petfinder.com or Furrymate.com, and the comedians have to guess which one. I said to Romeo, “Wouldn’t it be fun if there was a Romeo in the game?” Sure enough, the first entry (of the televised version) was “Romeo: I will lovingly lick your feet.” Thankfully, Romeo was a real puppy. Even more thankfully, Romeo’s ad stated he’d been ADOPTED! (That’s how it appeared in the ad.)
Speaking of Romeo, his fur is growing out nicely. It’s now a tad longer than a regular short-hair. Pretty soon I’ll have start brushing him regularly. I already need to clip his claws. That’ll be fun.
