CUT AND PASTE CATS MEET "NO MONEY DOWN" IN SAN FRANCISCO
Cut the Cat, loving wife of Paste the Cat, thought she was secure in her relationship. It's not that they genuinely loved one another -- each loathed the other -- but they acted the part and ripped off millions from unsuspecting victims. Why claw good profits?
One day, Cut and Paste Cats were behind an abandoned building South of Market in San Francisco. Nothing special. Just reworking a few mortgage contracts to their benefit.
Cut lifted her head. She heard delicate paws walking.
A gray, sneaky-looking cat now stood before them. The cat was female.
"Hi," she purred, looking at Paste. "They call me No Money Down. Need a lift with your finances, Cat-ee Pie?"
Paste stood transfixed at his new opportunity's shining fur.
Cut stood helpless, insulted. She'd never understood the word "Interest Rate" until now in this dirty, shame-filled back alley of San Francisco.
