"Killing Kittens" in other communities is an euphemism for masturbation (after that silly image of a kitten being chased by two Domo-Kuns with the "Every time you Masturbate, God Kills a Kitten. Please Think of the Kittems"), which gives the idea of "Perl Kills Kittens" an amusing new slant.

But in the singular it's "democrat kills kittens" at 647 results versus 680 for "republican kills kittens". Which, if you buy into that old saw about collective action versus individual action, makes sense.
