Seen on the Slacktivist blog:

Ako: That reminds me of an odd conversation with an extremely religious and superstitious woman I knew.

She came knocking on my door, saying she'd found my cat. Since my cat was in the house, I told her that she hadn't, and held my cat up to the window to demonstrate.

She turned the other cat (which she was holding by the scruff of the neck) to face her, and asked,

"Are you a demon?"

The cat didn't reply. So it definitely wasn't a stupid demon.

Vermic: Apparently demons function under the same rules as undercover police officers in urban legends, where they have to answer honestly if you ask "Are you a cop?", otherwise the arrest doesn't count.

Ako: Well, if you're a demon posing as a cat, and someone asks "Are you a demon?", it doesn't do much good to lie and say "No."

Good lord. I wonder what happened to that poor cat . . .

Thank you, I needed to laugh.

Well, in your crazy woman's defense, the cat DOES look rather demon-like. :)

And my brain would've snapped between these two responses:

Response #1 (the Crowley Response): The cat isn't, but I am. Would you like to come in for some tea and sell me your immortal soul? Yours isn't worth much, but you know. I may have a quarter or two lying around.

Response #2 (the PeeWee Response): (in my best falsetto out of the corner of my mouth) I say we let the cat go!
