Business Cat, Business Cat, What Are They Feeding You?

Dear Business Cat,

I know you’re an actor and all, but you seem to have a lot of chutzpah (not to mention specs and a necktie), so I’m just going to follow my gut here and ask you a quick question.

Do you have any administrative experience? See, Intern Jasmine is really overloaded (our bad) and she totally needs an assistant. All you would have to do is order her meals, file her taxes, make sure her car registration is paid, call her in for jury duty, check her business email, reply to her business email, spellcheck her tweets, pick up her dry cleaning, break up with guys she’s tired of, untag photos on Facebook that associate her with former friends, make reservations at her favorite restaurants, and… whatever other odds and ends you still have time for. You also have to read DISGRASIAN every day (and spellcheck my posts too, as I get carried away sometimes).

I’m going to be up front here. The pay isn’t great. But at DISGRASIAN HQ there are (in excess): warm windowsills, cardboard boxes, crinkled up pieces of paper, tuna juice, laps, carpet squares, string, yarn, twine, ribbon, very tall spots for sitting (or standing or planning a pounce), tiny stuffed mice, ping pong balls, little toys that roll and make Continue reading Business Cat, Business Cat, What Are They Feeding You?

F.B.I. – Yi Yi!

I have to say, when I read news today that a”hypermuscular” former FBI agent got busted for planning to murder people and attempting to rip off an Orange County drug courier–and was Vietnamese, my first thought was, “Wow, there was a Vietnamese FBI agent? Cool!” And my second thought was, “Oh man, he’s a totally crooked killer guy. Bad Vietnamese guy. Bad!” I know, I know.

But the disappointment only grew when I learned just how Vo Tran, the 40-year old that was fired by the FBI in 2003 for a number of offenses (including attempted bribery of a Vietnamese official) was harpooned.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

Vo Duong “Ben” Tran, 40, told a government informant secretly recording him that he had been a sports bookmaker and wanted to kill people across the country who owed him money, including a man from Redlands, Calif., who was in debt to him for more than $200,000.

“I want blood,” Tran said, according to the government transcript. “I have to make sure it has to be done right because all my hits, they are clean.”

Um, I’ve never actually ordered a successful hit, and I am certainly not a former FBI agent that once investigated organized crime, but in my opinion, jabbering on to your hitman is just sloppy. Shouldn’t such experience make a person BETTER at crime? I guess he didn’t study that hard. Just sayin’!!

I guess now, homey isn’t just former-FBI, he’s also FUBARed.

BREAKING NEWS!!! reports:

HIALEAH, Fla. — A teenager with a brown belt in karate used a samurai sword to scare off a burglar who was after his PlayStation 3 video game console…

…According to a police report, one of the burglars kicked in [the] bedroom door…

The burglar found the empty PlayStation 3 box and ran out of the room, but Damian was waiting for him.

“Once I saw him take off running back, I jumped off my (bunk) bed and I grabbed my sword … and I just waited for him,” he said.

Damian said he lunged at him with his samurai sword, striking him in the chest.

“He freaked out,” Damian said.

Somewhere in a Japanese grave, a self-expired Samurai is rolling over, moaning “First Tom Cruise, now this??”
