Corn Cob Cat Was The Best Thing That Happened In 1951

And don’t go Googling “things that happened in 1951” because you’re probably not going to find anything better.

1. In 1951, LIFE photographer Allan Grant visited the home of an orange tabby who will remain nameless.

2. It’s not clear why exactly, but a corn cob contraption was set up on the dining room table.

3. The cob was skewered while salt, pepper, and butter waited nearby.

4. Who could this be for?

7. [Cookie Monster Noises]

8. Then some guys with movie cameras showed up and made it weird.

9. Straight-off-the-table style was also demonstrated.

10. Proud, proud, proud, proud, PROUD.
