Since the line is "Everybody hurts, sometimes", then yes, I agree with your rating.

So a counterexample would have to be a member of "everybody" who never hurts.

What about using the cat/toast combination, combined with an axle, to power a boat/car/vehicular equivalent? You stick it on the back, and the force generated by the incredibly fast spinning of the cat and toast propels the vehicle forward.
