This one is a particularly perfect example of, yes, the cat is largely innocent of the mouse's cruel torment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFeFlGKu ... re=related

Jerry is the cruel but cute antagonist of Tom And Jerry, I rest my case.

Oh please. Now you're just being stupid. You found one where, though Jerry saves the king's life, he's the villain because after being hounded by Tom's attempts to murder him his whole life, he gets the opportunity to put him through comic trials to keep from waking up the king? That's your big ace in the hole?

We're getting back to the stage where I'm trying to figure out when you're pulling our leg and when you're just Fuggle, Fuggling things up.

Rant: Fuggle and Deacon arguing about Tom and Jerry. Don't you two have some girlfriends to be chasing after or something like that?

He save's the king's life and then when Tom is ordered, by the king, to catch the mouse, and warned that if he's roused, he'll go to the headsman ... and what does Jerry do with that knowledge? ... Rouse the king. I notice you leave the whole motive for the conflict out.

And notice, it's not even Jerry who calms him down, he;'s content to sit and watch - it's just the obnoxious and insipid little mouse who scampers up to put the King back to sleep. Jerry was content to make the King execute him.

Generally, it's just Tom being a cat, trying to catch a mouse - often, at the order of some human who wants the mouse dead - and the mouse tends to respond with a combination of excess violence and taunting, or tricking Tom into hitting someone else or rousing someone's ire and then letting that person abuse him for half an honest mistake and half mousey machinations ... with a sense of humor, "look how much pain I'm inflicting on this cat".

Heck, even when Tom's just trying to get Jerry to go away or strop drinking the milk, or stop eating the human's food, he's still the one who gets clobbered.

If you ever reproduce, drown the poor wretches in milk as soon as the umbilical cords are cut.

Reproduce? And pass on my fucked up shitty genes and family medical history? That would be ghastly and cruel. :(

If someone/thing were trying to kill me, I would certainly do everything in my power to make their lives miserable. Why would I care if they were just doing their job or what they are supposed to be doing? They are still trying to freaking kill me. The cat is supposed to kill the mouse but should the mouse just sit there and take it? I suppose you would just say "Yes, kill me cat!" and throw yourself upon his sword?

Also, it's a freaking cartoon

Drake, technically. :p

BUT CONGRATS

Man, that thing is a grind, though it had some fun quests (the races) and THE best quest, ever. You know the one.

...oh. Heh. Right. You're in beta. Neat.


DKS GET THEIR OWN MOUNT? LAME.

LAME.

Paladins sort of make sense. Warlocks, even. But ragh! Hunters should, too! More than Pallies (unless you want to rip of DnD) and Warlocks, and it even makes sense! Bah. Pfft!
