Bane Cat and Winter Soldier Cat
"No one cared who I was until I put on the mask."
I am not proud to admit that I watched the BaneCat video yesterday. The cat wearing the respirator seems suspiciously mellow about the situation. I hope pharmaceuticals were not required.
But that video and the promotional materials for "The Winter Soldier" made me think about the power of a bad guy who is wearing a mouth covering.
I was already thinking about cosplaying pets, as I had recently revisited our "super canines" series while posting them on Instagram.
(While I had carefully avoided Instagram in the past, "Daily Napkins" had suddenly acquired 949 followers on its nonexistent account thanks to one repost of a napkin image by Toby Turner a month ago. I decided I might as well post some more images there as the Tobuscus-derived Instagram constituency seems much more enthusiastic than other social media platforms. )
Anatomically, cats just seemed to lend themselves to mouth covers more than dogs.
I am not sure that the above commentary really explains the image.
Perhaps I should just point out that I was very tired and it was very late last night.
