'Cat'-Astrophe? Really?

I don't know what's worse. The gross factor of this story or the awful puns run amok.

OSTON (AP) -- Me-ouch! Veterinarians on Tuesday performed an unusual surgery to reattach the face of a cat they believe was injured by a car's fan belt, probably because she tried to stay warm under the hood.

Edgar, a 4-year-old long-haired feline, went missing from her home in Winthrop for three days last week. When she finally came home, her owner found her in her litter box -- with part of her face dangling from her head.

''When her owner saw her face, she passed out,'' said Elizabeth Kendrick, a surgical technician at Angell Animal Medical Center.

The owner, who asked not to be identified, recovered from the shock and rushed Edgar to an animal hospital.

Remarkably, Edgar suffered no major blood loss nor any permanent nerve damage from her accident. She just needed to have her facial skin stitched back on during an hour-long surgery, according to veterinary surgeon Michael Pavletic.

Me-ouch? *roll eyes*

No, the accident is definitely more painful. If the thought of having your face ripped partially off and reattched pains you less than a couple of bad puns, you might have some serious problems.

we're comparing the pain of reading about a cat's face getting ripped off versus enduring bad puns.

kids, stay away from fan belts.

The threat of pain is often more compelling than the actual pain itself. At least, that's what I learned about torture from MESSAGE CENSORED DUE TO NATIONAL SECURITY CONCERNS!; and from TV of course. TV knows all sorts of stuff about torture. I mean, they let NCIS run for six seasons, obviously they know a lot about inflicting pain.
