Grow Another Cat for Katrina

I followed the US out of the UN Blogroll (Thanks Pirate Steve) to Harvey at Bad Example to RomeoCat at CatHouse Chat's entry in the Carnival of Recipes.

This is the part where I steal RomeoCat's idea. When it comes to charity, plagiarism is the sincerest form of flattery. If you haven't visited her post, go there, publish a comment for $$$, put some soup on the stove, then come back here.

RomeoCat has whispered into the little devil kitty's ear about her other comment-for-charity post, which is for Soldiers' Angels Hurricane Relief. Imagine a family worried about their soldier, then the soldier worried about his or her family. Double the worry, double your donation.

So let's grow another Cat. (Picture of kitty courtesy of Hallmark Cards)

The tastefully philanthropic company I work for, offered to match any employee donation, from their personal funds, for Katrina relief, suspending the standard cap for this occasion.

So that being said, for tasteful, unique non-spam comments to this post, I will pony up five bucks apiece. For tasteful unique non-spam trackbacks, from your post, which reference this post, I will pony up ten dollars per track.

Feel free to masquerade as a frustrated moonbat or wingnut bursting with pride. No Hollywood potty mouths please. Any resemblance of the comment posters to actual public figures is a pure fabrication of unrestrained naughtiness.

This time, the Charity is the American Red Cross (Company choice).
My ceiling is $350.
Yippee! The company extended the deadline to Sep. 23rd.

So, this is a potential $700 for victim relief. Hit me!


Please donate your time, money or whatever you can, to Katrina victim relief:
Red Cross
Salvation Army
Technorati ,
Spice up your soup with Basil.

LOL, it's great to see an idea catch on! Thanks so much for the TrackBack to me (ka-CHING! $5 to the Red Cross), and may I be the first to set off your comments?

Best of luck, and thanks for caring!

Thanks for the idea! Now, I've cost myself another five bucks.

Al Sharpton said...

Just movin' some of that money out of the hands of the evil white man.

Rush said...

Here's to my good lifelong friend Insolublog. Don't feel oppressed or downtrodden by the main stream media.

Jesse Jackson said...

Do not misconstrue, as payment due, this click for you, as a clue that reparations are no longer in the queue .

Hillary said...

So you've got all this extra cash on hand? Not when I saddle up mister.

John Edwards said...

If Insolublog had put up a charity comment blog post before the election, Christopher Reeve would be walking today.

JFK said...

My name is John Forbes Kerry, and I am reporting for comment duty! By the way, I served in Vietnam.

Helen Thomas said...

If people don't fill up this post with enough comments and trackbacks to break this bastard's limit, I swear I will kill myself.

Alec Baldwin said...

If people don't fill up this post with enough comments and trackbacks to break this bastard's limit, I swear I will leave this country.

Nancy Pelosi said...

Where are all your compassionate conservative friends? It looks like they are all tighter than my face.

Sen. Dick Durbin said...

First there were the atrocities of Nazi Germany. Then there were the brutal tortures of Gitmo. Now we have Insolublog and his celebrity charity post. When will justice be done!?

Michael Moore said...

The children of NOLA were laughing, running and flying kites before the evil Bush hurricane blew in. We all know you're about water and oil, Insolublog.

GunnNutt said...

Looks like you've shaken up the Hard Left with this one! Maybe you should have chosen to Grow a new Rat, rather than Cat.

Romeocat said...

Oh, Lord, you have a stupendously hilarious set of commenters! What a lovely, nutty group...

If I may - the "most recent post" on my blog (thru Friday, 9 Sep) is also a fundraiser, but for Soldiers' Angels Hurricane Relief.

Would you send people over there, too?

Thank you so much for your help and for your lovely, funny, nut-case commenters!

[and, ka-chinnnggg! $5 more! LOL]

Howard Dean said...

You wingnut bloggers are all monolithic. You all believe the same. You all look the same. You're all pretty much a white Christian party. Not like our not entirely white non-denominational secular, culturally diverse, non-homophobic... wait a minute, where was I? I didn't use a double negative back there did I? Anyhoo... Yeaaaarggh!

Autorantic Moonbat said...

What about solar energy!!? What about sustainable development and humanities grants for the 5,259 Arabs who are beaten every single day by our Boy King and his bandwagon of imbecilic stormtroopers!!? Dittoheads!

Barbera Streisand said...

It was the wise William Shakespeare who said:

"The greatest lesson in life is to know that even fools are right sometimes."

Gray Davis said...

The list of comments to this blog is about as genuine as the list of voters for my re-election.

Dennis Kucinich said...

The mind-expanding freedom of my hemp oil powered tour bus, allows me to imagine a future without fossil fuels, and more money to spend on charity.

Arianna Huffington said...

“Now Is Precisely The Time For Assessing Blame"...Fortunately for me you are donating money, cause the price went up on private flights thanks to the evil BeazilBush.

Lost In Space Robot said...

Don't listen to the Autorantic Moonbat. We have had a highly charged marriage for fifty years. I just pull her battery pack when she gets out of claw.

Cindy Sheehan said...

Why are you all slumming in this commentary? We need to get back to my personal crusade against our criminal oil Baron president.

Sen. Robert Byrd said...

I wouldn't give yew two holes in a pillowcase for your parties chances in the mid term elections. Just my five bucks worth.

Ann Coulter said...

I feel strangely compelled by the seduction of you and your compassionate conservative agenda, Insolublog.

Patricia Ireland said...

This is just to prove to you how important a woman's right to choose is. I choose to post this comment.

James Carville said...

I'll bet Novak won't post here. He's got to show these right-wingers that he's got backbone. Show them he's too tough to care.

Robert Novak said...

That's Bull$hit James! And I don't have to take it! Here's your damn post.

Al Franken said...

I hope this isn't just another transfer of public funds from the mouths of one group of children to another. I've got my eye on you.

Pres. Al Gore said...

It's nice to see my invention being put to good use for a change.

Sen. Ted Kennedy said...

Err. Umm. No comment.

Jack Kevorkian said...

I'm getting ready for you Helen.

Johnny Depp said...

Insolublog is like America. He is dumb, like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive. So I'll occupy his snapping jaws with this five dollar bill.

Pres. Martin Sheen said...

I haven't seen this many friends, since Bush stole the election from me in 2000.

Spock said...

This post is clearly a violation of the Prime Directive.

Dr. McCoy said...

Spock, you pointy eared robot! I'm a Doctor, not a bureaucrat!

Kofi Anaan said...

This comment I place before you now is a tribute to the total UN commitment to elevate the people of America out of this tragedy.

Danny Glover said...

If this were Cuba, Fidel Castro would have used his amazing charismatic power to scare off that bad old storm. This five dollar comment wont make up for the crimes of Bush's Nazi aggression.

Helen Keller said...

auuuroguyaauuryhhh

Bill Gates said...

One only hopes that, when you post, you're doing it in Windows with Internet Explorer! That way, your $5 makes even more sense.

Sandy Berger said...

If you'll let me near the donation pile, my pants will be happy to see you.

Insolublog said...

Sorry Bill. It's a Mac with OSX. But thank you for your 'donation'.

Sandy. I'm sorry. But you are barred from my donation pile for three years.
