Hmmm. Not quite there yet.
Damn faulty chameleon circuit.
Zeus mutters to himself, “Stupid humans think I’m actually sitting there. Wish I’d thought of that decoy trick sooner. Now, where is that bacon?”
Cheshire–more usual spelling for the cat that’s just grin. But maybe Zeus’ version doesn’t come from a shire!
I’m guessing his version is to look bored until only his ears and tail are visible.
Jasper Fforde’s cheshire cat gags are better.
John Scalzi: Even his cats are overexposed these days.
This does explain how you can see a cat asleep on your bed upstairs toward the back of the house and then travel directly to the kitchen on the first floor and find the cat sitting on the counter saying “What?” when you look at them funny.
I thought they had pocket transporters (yes I know, no pockets) but this actually makes more sense and is historically accurate as well.
Shouldn’t we still be seeing a smile?
Maybe this is the opposite place and the smile is still at the first place. I mean, the body has to go somewhere first so the smile can stay behind doesn’t it?
I’m sure Charles Dodgson could explain it with mathematical logic but this works for me 8^D
Synchronicity…I just finished “Windup Girl”, with it’s chameleon-cat “Cheshires”, yesterday.
I am concerned about the amount of radiation your cat is emanating. Please consider reducing the amount of Polonium in his diet.
I expected a tongue-lashing from Chang (not Chang). I am disappointed!
This Rorschach Cat reminds me of a butterfly. What does it mean Dr. Scalzi?
