Sounds rather like some sort of "positive propaganda" for Valve.
Clearly made up by a fan of them.

That's what I thought but the reality is the majority of the internet thinks they are.

Steam literally can do no wrong to them. Maybe the cat can grow horns and glowing red eyes that would fit the picture better.

Maybe this fits better. You know somethings fishy but you can't stop yourself. How can the cat be bad.

If Valve was loyal then they wouldn't have abandoned the frachise that put them on the map.

The Haircut

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he
asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money
from you; I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was
pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the
next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for
him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill,
the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you; I'm doing
community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The
next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you'
card and a dozen doughnuts waiting for him at his door.

Then an MP came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the
barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing
community service this week.' The MP was very happy and left the shop.
The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen
MPs lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the
citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

BOTH POLITICIANS AND NAPPIES NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!

If God said it, then that settles it!!

I took the shell off of my racing snail to see if it went any faster.

If anything though, it just made it more sluggish.

Child: Mummy, who was Hitler?
Mother: Hitler?
Child: Yeah. Who was he?
Mother: Erm, he was a very bad man from a long time ago.
Child: Oh. How bad?
Mother: He was like… he was like Voldemort.
Child: Oh! That’s really, really bad.
Mother: Yes.
Child: (Pause) So, did Harry Potter kill Hitler, too?

It's not that funny, perhaps, but it illlustrates how cultural references change over time. Before HP, may be Sauron could be uses as a Hitler model, at least in some families.

Reminds me of the first time I watched my children play they were shopping. They took a box, and wandered around in their room. So I asked them, where's the counter? One of you should stand behind a counter and the other should tell what they wanted. Then I realized, they had never been to a shop like that.

Weird things customers say in bookshops

CUSTOMER: Doesn’t it bother you, being surrounded by books all day? I think I’d be paranoid they were all going to jump off the shelves and kill me.
BOOKSELLER: . . .

CUSTOMER: What’s your name?
BOOKSELLER: Jen.
CUSTOMER: Hmmm. I don’t like that name. Is it ok if I call you something else?

CUSTOMER (to her friend, upon opening a copy of the Lord of the Rings): Oh, look, this one’s got a map in the front.
CUSTOMER’S FRIEND: Oh, yeah. Where’s it of?
CUSTOMER: Mor… Mor-dor.
CUSTOMER’S FRIEND: Oh. Where’s that then?

BOOKSELLER: Can I help you at all?
CUSTOMER: No, I don’t think you’re qualified. I need a psychiatrist; that’s the only help I need.
BOOKSELLER: . . . OK.

CUSTOMER: Do you have this children’s book I’ve heard about? It’s supposed to be very good. It’s called ‘Lionel Richie and the Wardrobe.’

BOY: Mummy, can I have this book?
WOMAN: Go and see if your dad will buy it for you.
BOY: Dad! Mummy says if you don’t buy me this book, then you can’t sleep in her bed tonight!

There is - of course - a book about this: Weird things customers say in bookshops

News clip read on Leno show made me laugh…

911 reports:

Gas station attendant robbed at gun point. Suspect demanded all the cash in a bag. The attendant complied and then the suspect told him to put beer in the bag.

The attendant asked for ID stating he did not believe the suspect was 21 or over. Suspect argued the fact and finally gave the attendant his Drivers license as proof of age.

Attendant checked the ID and then put the beer in the bag. Yes you guessed it.

Suspect was arrested at his home within 2 hours of the crime.

Bart and Corwin should just admit that when it gets down to it, I will have the final say.

Ok going to post this cause the creator of it has not got off the stick yet to do it.

I think we should name it.

Mine would be: Who turned the volume up that loud!!

I'd say :
