A local ABC reporter in Springfield, Illinois, Garrett Brnger (yes, he’s missing a vowel), was trying to find people to interview about a recent water rate hike, and failed.
So he interviewed a cat.
Here’s a great lunchtime break, and this was just posted yesterday, so you’re some of the first to see it.
ABC REPORTER GARRETT BRNGER: You’d probably be paying, along with your kittens, about 15 extra dollars. How do you feel about that?
CAT: (Nuzzles microphone.)
REPORTER: No kidding?
CAT: (Rubs microphone with head.)
REPORTER: Oh, you don’t use any water – you don’t like baths, huh?
CAT: (Head butts mic.)
REPORTER: Sir, I’m going to have to ask you to stop attacking my mic.
CAT: (Backs away.)
REPORTER: Now that’s just uncalled for.
CAT: (Nuzzles up against reporter’s thigh.)
REPORTER: Well this is inappropriate.
