    I can’t even begin to imagine the overwhelming cloud of cat piss stink that followed this dude around everywhere.

    Where was this guy when they were casting Gandalf?

    That cat has seen things that would make you huddle, piss-soaked, under your bed.

      I’m pretty sure that that is the “That which has been seen cannot be unseen” cat’s direct ancestor.

  7. Mister44 says:

    The cat is all wide-eyed, like he just saw C’thulu or something.

  8. TacoChuck says:

    The cat has exactly the expression on its face I would expect it to have in that situation.

    “Perhaps his greatest claim to fame is the fact that he is the only military opponent to force George Washington to surrender.” -Loius Coulon de Villiers wikipedia page and is a completely different person.

     Image does not prove that an 11-foot beard will hold a cat. Would not buy again.

    Ugh! Beards signify lice, not wisdom. Oh, and cats, too.

  14. Pobol Pobotrol says:

    I now have something to aspire to.

  15. Sam Borgeson says:

    Um, I know there is a lot to take in here, but don’t overlook the hat with a bow on it.

    Also, consider this: There is a strong possibility that the cat, having been separated from its biological mother early in life, has come to think of the beard as its mother.

  16. Bearded hipsters worldwide lift your game until you have cat cove in your beards you aren’t cool.

    I think I saw him last night at the Rob Zombie/Marilyn Manson concert.

  18. welcomeabored says:

    Twenty-five comments later and not a single joke reference to either the man or cat as ‘Mr. Whiskers’?

  19. Is that beard really 11ft long.  I have my doubts.

  20. Rich Keller says:

    A blog in French said that in 1903, it was 3.35 meters long. There’s another picture of him holding his beard while standing…

    You need the cat to control the beard bird population.  Simple beard ecology.

  22. Quiche de Resistance says:

    I don’t think that he even knew the cat was in there, just one of the nine cats hangin out in there that happened to look out at time of the picture.
