    I never liked shooting at human silhouettes. I prefer pictures of cuddly kittens playing with yarn balls.

    Because in my mind, those cats are nazi spies working for Ikea in the Living Room department... And that my friend is pure evil. Evil Kitty

    Ontop of everything else, wouldn't such a ban by a government entity also be a First Amendment violation?

    ugh. The guy's own security detail should beat him for saying something so stupid.
