You've seen them before. They're in your home, in your office, on the street. You've encountered them at some fine and not-so-fine establishments. They're the new urban animals, and now they've been classified. You know you've met Every Mother's Worse Nightmare (So what if it says Pussy' on the front, Mom? There's a picture of a cat under the word") and The Simpsons Quoter (Natural habitat: His own private Springfield, no further description necessary).

Beware, you might find yourself in here.
