[color=#000000ost_uid0]Just begging for a [iost_uid0]Doctor Who[/iost_uid0] reference (or three):

Neo: Odd. I saw that same robotic dog just a second ago.
Trinity: Not good. Either we're being chased by a talking cactus, or the Agents have changed something.
Neo: So that's why I'm wearing a scarf and hat.

SWAT Guy: Die fledermaus!
Mouse: Not the opera puns...! GAK!

I shall try and think of something a little more sane tomorrow.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]A somewhat different version of my latest block:


Neo: If you see a feline walk past you, and then you see an identical feline do it again, is the second one considered a dupli-cat?
Morpheus: More like a sign of impending catastrophe. Speaking of which, I want to make a phone call. Get me Mouse.
Mouse: The windows are sealed--GAK!
Agents: Yes, they are.
Morpheus: Rats, Mouse just went catatonic.[/colorost_uid0]

Mouse: Great, i'm trapped like a rat.

[color=#000000ost_uid0]I think we've probably got enough proposals that it would be justifiable. On the other hand, I'm not sure I've run out of "cat" jokes yet. [/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Well, so long as we're voting, I like this one of JobeGDG's:

[quoteost_uid0][bost_uid0]Neo[/bost_uid0]: Hey, a black cat! Hey, a black cat!
[bost_uid0]Trinity[/bost_uid0]: Oh no! They're making changes to the Matrix!
[bost_uid0]Neo[/bost_uid0]: Like adding another cat? That's a lot of bad luckÂ…
[bost_uid0]Mouse[/bost_uid0]: GAK!
[bost_uid0]Neo[/bost_uid0]: See?[/quoteost_uid0]

Oh, and I also like this first title whatever wise guy is responsible gave me. Â Â -- Pteryx[/colorost_uid0]

But I think there should be a scene with Mouse in it, too.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]That's 4 for the Blue Screen of Death, one for Jobe's "bad luck - GAK", and one NAHT's catcatcatcat one.

I'm in favor of the BSoD, which is mine, so I can't vote for it, so I'm not voting... but I agree that we need a scene for mouse. Maybe we could rewrite the cat puns for a Mouse-only scene?[/colorost_uid0]
