Beware the limping cat #2

So six months ago we had the manslaughter case when a family of dingbats drowned one of its members and nearly drowned a second, under the impression that the victims had been cursed by the theft of a mass-produced concrete lion.

Now a guy has been convicted for murdering a family guest with a 16-kg replica cat statue, dropped several times on his head while he was asleep.

I blame media sensationalism for this spate of copy-cat crimes.

You're supposed to swing a dead cat, not a cement one!

Reminds me of the Esquire Dubious Achievement where a man suicided by drilling 11 holes through his skull= caption was "Man drills 10 holes through skull- Lives!"

Concrete-cat crimes too!

I hate replica cats.

You'd like this movie about a detective who hunts down replicant cats in a futuristic megalopolis- Ball of String Runner.

I totally see some bi-pedal cats dressed up like Power Rangers, kicking ass and taking names.

Spoiler alert; the ending would be ruined because replicat would not need to say...more life(s) fuker.

I am available for script analysis.
