Understanding and Context Are Important, As Seen in a Commercial

Have you ever wondered what some of the crazy things we do look like to outsiders like our pets? The video below shows a possible scenario. Frankly, we humans do a lot of absurd stuff. The video below features some rituals related to the Super Bowl.

Every now and again it’s good to laugh at some of the things we do and to realize that context is important.

As the cats observe the Super Bowl rituals (some of which are silly, some stupid, and some harmful) what they really lack is context. They don’t understand fun and just being goofy. They’re only cats; they don’t have intellects and cannot appreciate humor, friendly competition, and just being silly.

On freaky Friday I like to show a commercial or cartoon that is lighter fare.

On a more serious note, though, many laugh at our Catholic rituals and traditions because they lack context and understanding. A commercial like this reminds all of us how important understanding and context are. Without them, many who criticize our faith show more about what they lack than what we do.

  1. Cute. Reminded me of how little time I spend with cats these days. Strange creatures. I explained to one of my sisters that our prayers are supposed to ascend to God like the smoke of incense, as a pleasing odor to God, and that one reason Catholics use incense is to remind themselves of that. She didn’t know that and she liked that.

      With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers.
      Old Cody, Junior took me over,
      Said, you’re gonna find the world is smouldrin’
      An’ if you get lost come on home to Green River.”

  2. And that’s how the secular progressive strategy works. You point out all the negative aspects of adult behavior to the blank slate minds of children and teach them how to manipulate the masses through deception.

  3. Thanks for the feline interlude. I don’t miss watching football but I sure miss having cats, in my life these days.
    They sure help me when any of my rituals get ponderous.
