Even music producer Skrillex decided to weigh in:

@Skrillex I know. It's crazy. I thought it would slide right in there.

One fan suggested Black’s finger doesn’t really belong inside his cat’s rear end, which resulted in this sharp response:

Umm, you don't know my cat and you don't know me. RT @Crissylynsky umm I don't really think fingers belong in cats butts

— Michael Ian Black (@michaelianblack) May 7, 2012

We wonder what his co-author, Meghan McCain, thinks about all this.
