Congrats, Malfeitor! Your prize: the ability to choose next Wednesday’s Afternoon Inquisition! Send it in using the contact form.

There are a few notable runners-up this week:

And by the way: Congratulations! Having never participated in the act of producing offspring myself, the best advice I can give is:

@DominEditrix: Cats stealing your breath? That’s madness.

It’s a hideous little monster that lives in your house’s walls that does that. The cat is trying to protect you. Being woken up with your cat standing over you is a good thing; it has just scared away the little monster.

I suggest you set out a floor fan with metal blades the monster can be thrown into.

My bottle of astroglide glide has the warning”For external use only”, however, if used properly will end up internal. Maybe they mean “do not eat/drink”.

Happy Friday, everyone!
