A few words about Mr. Ed and Jetsam ...

This post started out as part 1 of my April Book Report, but Blogger won't let me paste text from Microsoft Word, though this has never been a problem before. So I'll wait and try again on another day ...

In the meantime, a few more Mr. Ed-related things. First of all, in the comments, Guinifer linked to a Snopes page which claims that Mr. Ed was a zebra!!! If you follow the link (www.snopes.com/lost/mistered.asp), and then go to the bottom of the screen and click on "More Information About This Page," you'll see what it's all really about. (Having read The Famous Mr. Ed: The Unbridled Truth about America's Favorite Talking Horse several times, I'm familiar with a lot of the Mr. Ed rumors.)

A couple of people mentioned having the theme song stuck in their heads after reading the post, and I thought it may interest/amuse/disgust you to know that I have won more than one Mr. Ed sing-off, where the theme song is sung and the person who does Mr. Ed's voice at the end the best, wins. One of my few claims to fame. (Hey, everyone needs something they do really well, right?)

On that note, Wilburrrrr, I will declare the subject closed. I do however reserve the right to post the picture from time to time.

Why is there a picture of Jetsam below? Because today is the anniversary of his joining the family. If you would like to read about it, the original post is here.

"Would you leave this face in the trash?????"

Happy anniversary, Jetsam! You have beautiful eyes.

Jetsam! You roly-poly bundle of fun! Love you!

Awww, Jetsam, what kind of jerkface would leave you in the trash? Probably best not to consider it and focus on how lucky it was that Bridget recycles cardboard!

I just read teh story behind Jetsam and lets just hope there is a special kind of justice for him. What a gorgeous cat. And if this person didn't want him, why not let him go free? Why keep him trapped in a box to be crushed or thrown out?? Like I said, a special kind of justice. Good for you for saving such a beautiful cat.

I feel that I am a model of restraint for avoiding any snide comments on the whole Mr. Ed thing. Not even a single Catherine the Great reference. Yay me.

Instead I will spend the day thinking with love of Jetsam, and debating who is more lucky: Jetsam for having come to such a happy home, or you and Tim, for getting such a beautiful fur-baby to love.

Riley says "Meow!", and I say "Happy Anniversary, Jetsam!"

Lorraine said...

Bridget- You need to put the Mr. Ed thing on your CV- that would be a hard thing to forget.

Jetsam, it was meant to be. Why are people so cruel?

Happy Belated anniversary, Jetsam!

And hells no, I wouldn't. Couldn't. What is with people? Freaks.
