‘Totino’s Super Bowl Activity Pack For Women’, An SNL Sketch Poking Fun at How Women Keep Busy During the Big Game

Last night, Saturday Night Live had a little fun at the expense of the upcoming Super Bowl with “Totino’s Super Bowl Activity Pack For Women“, an acerbic sketch that poked fun at how women occupy themselves when they’re not making “delicious Totino’s Pizza Rolls” and other yummy snacks for their “hungry guys” watching the game.

I’ll be in the kitchen if you need me. I normally just wait in the kitchen waiting for them to ask for more delicious Totino’s Pizza roles but that can be so boring. Well, not anymore. Introducing Totino’s new Super Bowl Activity Pack for Women. It’s full of fun puzzles and games to keep my mind active while I wait back here. My hungry guys are not the only ones having fun around here. With my Super Bowl Activity Pack for Women, I can spin a little top, connect the dots…do a word search…count my own money and plenty of other activities.

Feisty Tabby Cat Without Front Legs Topples a Village Made From Building Blocks While In Pursuit of a Laser Beam

Mercury, the feisty tabby catwho never lets the fact that he doesn’t have front paws stop him from doing anything he wants to do, successfully toppled a building block village with just a few swipes of his adorable head while in pursuit of a frantic laser beam in 2014 at his home at the Community Cat Coaliton of Edmond in Edmond, Oklahoma.

Mercury is about 14 weeks old in this video, and due to requests for him to go on a rampage we made a little block village for him to destroy. Rawr!

Almost a year later in 2015, Mercury tried to teach a group of unsure foster kittens how to play with a spinning cat toy, before retreating quietly when a few larger cats came jumping into the scene.

Mercury tried to show his foster kittens how to work the new toy, though they weren’t completely sure at first how to go about it. The first 4 kittens are from the shelter, and were picked up with calici virus. It took weeks of medication, breathing treatments and tube feeding to get them healthy, but now they are on their way to being big and healthy kittens.
