Stubbornly swimming upstream the river of filth that is a majority of the internet, Catroulette insists on being an adorable island, spitting a big old gob of cute in the face of rondos, randos and pervs. I mixed three metaphors! That’s a hat-trick in metaphor hockey!

Self congratulation aside, Catroulette is a site documenting the adventures of a Brooklyn cat named Duck on the latest meme-machine, Chatroulete. If you’re not familiar, it’s a video chat room that assigns you a random conversation partner. As the name implies, it’s a gamble as to whether or not you’ll be assigned a man in a rubber suit with nipple clamps. Check out our gallery on the Best of Chatroulette for examples.

Since that’s part of the thrill, lots of people use Chatroulette in the hopes of landing a skeeze freak. When they stumble across Duck, however, they tend to be pleasantly surprised. When one of those guys in a rubber suit with nipple clamps stumbles across Duck, conversely, they tend to be disappointed. It’s a Rorshach test to separate slummers and tourists from hardened online sex offenders.

Enjoy now some samplings of Catroulette, one hundred percent SFW with nary a trace of nipple clamps!
