**** YOU JOE. I posted to see whether or not people considered it
abuse, rather than simply complain to the site since I wasn't sure
myself. Not that someone as stupid as you would care.


I think most of us consider it a use of Photoshop.

F*CK YOU JOE. I posted to see whether or not people considered it
abuse, rather than simply complain to the site since I wasn't sure

Especially if one has the brains to Google the apparently about
semi-annual mentions of this particular hoax [I can think back to
hearing about this at least two *years* ago, *without* help from
Google], or to consult the Urban Legends Reference Pages [see
http://www.snopes.com/inboxer/outrage/bonsai.htm for particulars on
this specific joke], or to check any of the other fairly numerous hoax
sites around *before* going into hysterics.

The picture is on a site with some other random cat pictures and does
not look photoshopped to me, but maybe it is. It is a cat that
someone has stuffed in a jar or at least appears to be that and my
instant reaction was to think that wasn't particulary kind to the cat.


It might be from someone who got the idea from bonsai kitten but I
still have problems with someone stuffing a cat into a jar even if it
was just to "be cute" or whatever. Good god, I'll drop it. If you
want to complain to the site owner or not, that's your business. I'm
forgetting about the whole damn thing.


It's a glass, not a jar, and it looks like a damn fine example of
Photoshopping to me.
