GiggleSugar megafan Flippy has the notable distinction of being both a former GiggleSugar Pet of the Week and now a reader of the week. If you'll recall, Flippy only recently learned how to read. Look out, because speaking tours aren't far behind. Flippy's one of the snarkiest felines out there, but what do you expect from a cat from New York City? Be sure to check out the image gallery at the end of the interview.
GS: What is your motto?
Flippy: “Never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity.” Either that or “Eat as much Pounce as possible as often as possible.”
GS: Where are you from?
Flippy: I’m not really sure. My childhood is a bit fuzzy. I remember wandering the city streets as a kitten, but then someone grabbed me and took me to some sort of holding cell. I was kept there for a few days and people would come to stare and fondle me. I tried to ignore them. Then some people came and took me to their trashy apartment. I have been kept inside ever since, though there have been some car rides and I believe a plane trip. I may have been taken over state lines. Still trying to figure it out.
GS: What do you do?
Flippy: Um, not too much. I sleep a lot. I look out the window. I like to play with string, and someone knitted me a mouse that never ceases to amuse. Periodically I get high. Then I eat. Then I sleep some more. I keep waiting for someone to tell me I need to do something more with my life, but no one ever does. I have been getting away with this for years. Chumps.
GS: How would you describe your sense of humor?
Flippy: Dry and sarcastic. You can really never tell if I’m kidding or not. Some people think I am judging them. Who knows? Maybe I am.
GS: What's your favorite GiggleSugar post?
Flippy: Well, of course Happy Caturday is always fun. Though really, every day is Caturday. I am also of course a fan of the practical joke, so Meanest Prank Ever gets me every time. Except the giant rat thing still makes me twitch in my sleep sometimes
GS: Who is the cutest funny man and funny woman?
Flippy: Humans aren’t very cute. You people don’t even have any fur. It’s creepy. But at least Julia Louis-Dreyfus has a good head of hair. As for men, I guess I’m stuck with Bruce Vilanch as far as fur goes. Except he’s not funny.
GS: Who are your favorite male and female comedians?
Flippy: I like Arnold Ziffle. And I loves me some Margaret Cho.
GS: What's your favorite comedy of all time?
Flippy: Cat People, starring Nastassia Kinski. That was HILARIOUS.
GS: If your life were a comedy, what would it be?
Flippy: Possibly The Devil Wears Prada. With me as Meryl Streep. Either that or Pink Flamingos.
GS: Do you look like someone famous?
Flippy: I have been told I look like Chococat. But I don’t see it.
