Cutting the Gordian Knot

Chaplin: “What are you doing down here, Charlee? Is that my automatic feeder?”
Swordfish: “I’ll tell you what we’re not doing! We’re not trying to hack this feeding device, no sir!”

Charlee: “Hey, why did you tell him that? What happened to being a top-notch hacker and immune to social engineering?”
Swordfish: “I didn’t get socially engineered. I’m employing misdirection. It’s a classic top-notch hacker technique. Just like erasing log files and such.”
Chaplin: “What? You’re trying to hack my feeder?”
Charlee: “Yeah, that misdirection seems like it totally worked. Great job.”

Chaplin: “Tell you what. If you want to get into the feeder that badly, Charlee, I’ll stand within range so it opens. Okay?”
Charlee: “That’d be great, Chaplin! Thanks!”
Swordfish: “‘Stand within range so it opens’? What kind of a hack is that? Not the top notch kind, I tell you what!”

Swordfish (muttering): “I could have gotten that top open for you if you gave me a few more minutes, but nooo, you just had to take the easy way.”
Charlee: “Mmm, delicious forbidden food … Hey, wait, what is this stuff?”
Chaplin: “It’s my prescription hydrolyzed dry food. Why, what were you expecting?”
Charlee: “I don’t know. Something better than this. Steak, chicken cutlets, tuna …”
Chaplin: “Well, I think I know where we can find some tuna.”

  1. Aww, what a nice kitty to do that for your furpal!!! Timber was on that hydrolyzed kibble for a while when he was younger and not gaining weight. He didn’t seem to care what was in it – he gobbled it down:)
