As humorous as the article is, it does so to make a legit point at the end:
Jokes aside, cat-computing is the name I give to this generalized practice. In my experience, it happens quite often that when someone discovers a new feature of a language, they begin to use it everywhere, just because they can and they want to.

P.S. The kitty in the image is Opal, before she grew up. She would even hide inside the bottom of the Christmas tree. 🙂
