Hey everybody, I’m Joe Meyer, and welcome to Furreh Nuuz Teevee, a strip that makes fun of furries. This strip has gotten a bit of attention within the fandom, since I started doing the strip earlier this year. It’s gotten some positive and negative feedback, but more positive than anything else, and that has inspired me to continue doing the strip. After the strip, I’m going to provide a bit of commentary, letting you all know the inside stories behind the strips, which are inspired by the (un)real goings on with the fandom.
First of all, I am in fact, a card carrying member of the furry fandom. But when I refer to it, I call it Teh Furreh Fandumb, so that should show you how serious I take this fandom. (If you don’t know what a ‘furry’ is, I suggest looking at Wikipedia for a general idea.)
Secondly, what is a fursuit? To put it succinctly, a ‘fursuit’ is a mascot costume made of a personally developed character. A personal character, usually an anthropomorphic animal character that is typically created by the wearer. Sometimes the wearer makes the costume themselves, or they commission someone else to do so. The amount of people who are making these suits are growing day by day and some of the more adept are actually making it a profession.
Once upon a time there was a catmorph named Suzanne. She sat at the breakfast table as she did every morning. The cup of coffee warmed her paws, and her tail twitched thoughtfully. She glanced at the newspaper sitting nearby but was disinclined to even leaf through it, disappointed as she was in the state of current journalism.
Noise came from upstairs. She turned and saw her most recent beau, a muscular rabbit, come down the stairs. She purred as she remembered the night before, and narrowed her eyes, took a long, slow sip and brushed her bed fur out of her eyes.
She looked over at him.
“HOLY SHIT I’M A CAT WHAT THE FUCK!”
“I AM A GIANT BUNNY! AAAAAH”
“I’M A CAT!!!”
“AND I’M A RABBIT!!”
“I GOT A TAIL AND EVERYTHING!”
“I GOT A CUTE LITTLE PUFFBALL TAIL AND BIG FLOPPY EARS! AAAAA!”
“I’M A CAT! I’M A CAT!!! MEOW MEOW MEOW!!! I’M A CAT!!!!”
“I’M A BUNNY!!! THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP THUMP!!!!”
“I AM A CAT!”
Suzanne took another sip of her coffee and looked at the handsome rabbit standing across from her. She wanted nothing more than to lie, once again, in his strong, muscular, black-furred arms, and feel his strength all around her. She got up, twitched her tail under his twitching nose, and looked at him with come-hither hooded eyes.
“CAAAAAT!!!!! I AM A CAT!!!!!!!”
With that, she winked and went back up the stairs. Her paramour quickly got the message and went back up the stairs a few steps behind her.
“I’M A RABBBITTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!”
