Are you ready for more spaghetti-eating cats? - VIDEO

catThe mystery of the spaghetti-eating cat has been solved.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, here's the skinny. During a segment on binge drinking on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet, the show suddenly - and without any explanation at all - switched to a picture of a cat seated at a table eating a plate of pasta. The cat wasn't on the show and they never said why it happened. But now a spokesman for the show has explained what happened. It wasn't a technical glitch or similar error, it was actually done on purpose! The woman talking about binge drinking said something shouldn't have said, so instead of using the usual "bleep" the show went to this picture of a spaghetti-eating cat. If you watch the clip after hearing this explanation you can actually tell that's what happened, because the audio drops out too and when they come back co-host Juliet has a half-smile/half grimace on her face, as if something bad was just uttered.

This could start a trend. Instead of bleeping shows could show a picture of something to symbolize the bleeping. This wouldn't work on Jerry Springer (the videos would be coming fast and furious), but using it every once and a while could be good.

Here at TV Squad we're going to start using this picture instead of swearing:

I have to admit, I'd like to know what was said that was so awful.

Bob, if you're gonna use a clip from a TV clip show I think you should show some courtesy and reference the source. Also, I think fast and furious vid-swapping for Springer would be excellent. It'll be like finding all the Easter Eggs in Fight Club.

I watch the Soup religiously and I think that has to be one of the funniest clips I have ever seen on the show. I laughed for at least 5 minutes after seeing that the first time. Hilarious.

I completely agree. I couldn't breathe I was laughing so hard at the clip. Also "the soup" is awesome.

Dear lord, please stick with the swearing! I can stomach it so much more easily than that frightening, frightening image.
