Actually yes, that's how he got his name. As a kitten he was so tiny (weighed 6 oz when I got him) and his meow actually sounded more like "meep meep". My best friend said "he sounds like Beaker the Muppet!" and that's how his name came to be.

Yeah, but I don't know which is Statler and which is Waldorf.

...also, how Beaker managed to be better than one but not the other in your rankings, since Statler and Waldorf are pretty much interchangeable.

I view Statler & Waldorf as a single package, not two separate entities.

I can't imagine having one w/o the other . . . the humor just wouldn't work.

Like Lem and Phil on Better Off Ted? I hope not, because either one of them would be funny on his own, but they're more than the sum of their parts.

It's been 3 1/2 months since I lost my kitty and the first month was especially rough, but in the last couple of weeks I started visiting shelters and just looking. None of them really "spoke" to me. Then this weekend I found the cutest little guy who seemed so full of personality...and he had a foster brother he'd bonded with. The foster brother rubbed against my leg and purred and purred. So....I adopted them both!
