Five years ago, Paul and T.J. delighted the Internet with An Engineer's Guide to Cats, a deadpan examination of the art and science of cats. Now the pair are back, measuring feline-borne crotch pressure, checking kitty aspect ratio, and applying more corporal cuddling—this time aided by autotune.

Hoping to cheer up Boing Boing editor Xeni Jardin (who is unfortunately going through chemo), musician Jonathan Mann offered to write her a song for his "Song-a-Day" project on a topic of her choosing.
