Whiskers: Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, Jan. 2022 Edition, Vol. 9
Celebrating a new year with style and grace (and not a little bit of sartorial elegance), we proudly announce a new year and, thus, a new age of CSR; one entirely unmolested by the churlish tides of antagonistic political barbs or ideological sniper shots or… oh, who the Hell are we kidding? We just happened to have a surplus supply of photos of kitties. And with that painful confessional we present this month’s edition of America’s most illustrious example of Restoration thinking in an age of postmodern nihilism, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you by those purveyors of SKITTLES, America’s most addictive breakfast candy. As previously hinted, this edition features cinematic acknowledgement of those furry balls (a.k.a. the second favorite house pet of those who chew gum) characterized by their unpredictable, antagonistic personalities and disturbing willingness to consume their owners within minutes of expiring: the feline. The following twenty-five images represent just a fraction of the big screen appearances of the noble but psychotically irritable cat. Your task is to correctly identify all twenty-five films and report your findings to the home office, assuming that your vaccination papers are in order or a reasonable facsimile of a letter of exoneration from the HUAC. The first to correctly identify every film will receive the one and only original CSR Culture Shock Award, suitable for use as a foldable rain poncho for all Pittsburgh Penguin home games, Good luck.

Pete is good at this game. I am curious about No. 18. It’s very unsettling. Reaches deep into the heart and I am scared.
