About the song: You could say this song is a true story about a dead cat. You could say it’s about human existence in a meaningless universe. You could say it places a chip on Pascal’s Wager. You could say it’s also provocative, dark, funny and sentimental, all in one strange mix, until the odd title falls into place in the last line with perfect sense. A little gospel, a little blues, a little showtune and altogether a jaunty, offbeat song.

Gender point of view: Irrelevant.
