[CAT] "Cat herding"

Although Shakespeare is of Toronto stock--as far as I know, at least--cat demographics being what they are at least part of his ancestry can be traced to the great cat herds of the American West.

This man right here is my great grandfather. He’s the first cat herder in our family.
Herding cats. Don’t let anybody tell you it’s easy.
Anybody can herd cattle. Holding together ten thousand half wild short hairs -- that’s another thing altogether.
Being a cat herder is probably about the toughest thing I’ve ever done.

It's nice to know that these guys are keeping the tradition alive.

(OK, it's actually a 2000 Superbowl ad by eds.com, but still, isn't it great?)
