Fish are the new barbells

This is a video about cats weightlifting fish. Let that sink in for a moment. The concept will feel weird at first, as it should, because this is entirely ridiculous. And yet, something about it just makes sense, like it's the most natural thing in the world.

I love how uncertain competing cats are at first. They walk out of the woods to find a giant fish, left all alone with no protection. Approaching, they look around suspiciously. "Is this really going to be this easy?" they wonder. "Am I sure I'm not being set up?" Cautiously, they put their teeth into the fish, and then quickly dart away. Soon, they've realized that there is no one guarding these fish other than their competition, and that's when they start getting totally blatant about taking whatever fish they want, no matter how much it weighs. In fact, I'm certain they could probably carry even heavier fish, if they were to somehow get their mouths around it.

Just hit the jump and watch this video. Then we can get used to this sport and not be surprised when it debuts as the newest Olympic event.

[Thanks, Jon Carnage!]
