Fun With Teh Catz

Athena saw yesterday’s “I Has a Flavor” kitty and wanted to do something similar, and provided an amusing prop with which to get best results. We applied prop to cat, took photos, and then added our text. Here’s Athena’s:

And mine:

Frankly, the cat’s expression is what makes it work.

But it wouldn’t be any fun if you didn’t get a shot at it, so, here:

Feel free to add your own caption and post it up somewhere. If you want to come back and leave a link to your newly-captioned picture of our royally humiliated cat, that’s fine with me too.

  1. JD: Did I miss a week somewhere? Where did the weird grammar and spelling trend start?

    I think it started at least as far back as “Modern English”, which is usually traced back to the time of William Shakespeare. (The timing is not at all coincidental.)

    In terms of this specific and more recent spate of weirdness, my only-mildly-informed guess is that it’s a playful outgrowth of both IM shortcuts and African American Vernacular English (aka “ebonics”) via rap and hip-hop.

  3. Addendum: Oh yeah, I forget to add “Engrish” to the mix, via “All your base are belong to us”, etc.

  4. (In oddly affected British accent)

    I AM ON YOUR SOFA AND MY COMMAND OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE IS QUITE SUFFICIENT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
    I MOST STRENUOUSLY RESENT ANY IMPLICATIONS TO THE CONTRARY. NOW, WILL YOU PLEASE, KINDLY REMOVE THE FUCKING TIARA?

  5. Heh. I can just see some grammar cop pointing out an infraction to one or another of the queens of Britain, and being told in no uncertain terms that “We are the English language.”

    Which of course is true, if one exchanges the royal “We” for a more we-the-people sort of “we”. While grammar rules and spelling and dictionary definitions and so on certainly have their place, the English language is what we say it is.

  6. I believe the standard feline response to all such offences against a cat’s dignity is:

    IF I WAS BIGGER I’D EAT YOU

  8. Bacon taped to fur
    Now foolish crown on my head
    Behold kitty rage

    Human prints out draft
    Many days of work is there
    I shall pee on it

    See my flowing river
    Yellow and odiferous
    Curdles bond paper

    Bountiful as well
    Overflows the paper pile
    Shorts out computer

    Dignity avenged,
    I curl around your ankles
    Demanding dinner

  9. If you’re going to put a tiara on fonixkat, shouldn’t “Princess” be spelled

    ghwrensesce?

    “gh” from “hiccough,”
    “wren” from, well, the bird,
    “s” from “silly” (guilty as charged),
    and “esce” as in “acquiesce to the kitty.”
