Replacing Debates with Kittens Would Be ‘Just as Informative, and Great for Productivity’

Today, Elspeth Reeve noted that even the campaigns are treating the upcoming presidential debates as little more than a reality show. Why can’t we just watch kittens instead, asks commenter mhwood:

Why not replace the whole thing with hilarious kitten antics? Just as informative, and great for productivity. win-win, guys!

We see you read our chart of the day, which graphs the relationship between baby animal pictures and increased worker productivity. While we aren’t so sure it’s a good idea to replace the Obama and Romney showdown with frolicking kittens, we do hope one of the candidates will propose cute kittens as a way to jumpstart the economy. One of them really ought to run on the platform “a chicken in every pot, and a cat jumping in and out of every box.”
