Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
The Hurricane has a new nickname -- Miss Conception. Every time I tell this anecdote I start to laugh so hard that my speech becomes incomprehensible, so if you have difficulty reading my writing, it's because I'm laughing so hard.
Miss Conception was listening to the president's victory speech, following the election, obviously. President Obama said that we want out children to grow up in an America that's "not threatened by the destructive power of a warming planet."
Miss Conception thought he said, "not threatened by the destructive power of a Mormon planet."
I thought that was hilarious.
The big news from Favorite Young Man and Little Chick is that President Jimmy Carter now lives with them. No, his wife didn't kick him out.
Actually, it would be pretty funny if she finally became so angry about his comment to "Playboy" so many years ago that he lusted after women in his heart that she said, Jimmy, Get the hell outa my bed. So he had to move in with FYM and LC.
However, President Jimmy Carter is, in fact, a stray cat who now makes his home with my animal loving children.
I think Little Chick and President Jimmy Carter make a beautiful couple. Fortunately, their dogs seem to find that having a president in their midst is not such a bad thing.
Reminder: Peaches Ledwidge in my bloghouse on Wednesday. She starts her blog tour here to promote the release of her memoir, Day Laughs, Night Cries. Don't miss out on this special appearance by Peaches!
And please click on my ads. If you keep it up, I might actually earn enough money to put a lump of coal in my Christmas stocking.
Infinities of love,
Mr. Carter is surely living the good life in the arms of a beautiful woman.ReplyDelete
He's no fool, Peaches.Delete
How exciting to live with a president, even if it's only a one term president.ReplyDelete
He wasn't a really great president, but he's certainly a great ex-president; and even better now that he lives with my children.Delete
I hope President Jimmy Carter isn't the jealous type--Little Chick it MUCH prettier!!ReplyDelete
I think President Jimmy Carter likes showing off his Little Chick.Delete
I think Prez Jimmy Carter looks very presidential, very cute indeed. :) Tell me what size lump of coal you want, I'll see if I can send you some myself..lolReplyDelete
Any size of coal will do. It's better than having nothing in my stocking when I'm all alone on Christmas because my children neglect me.Delete
Ha ha, that's hysterical!ReplyDelete
I love Jimmy Carter! What a beautiful kitty :) Is he a Russian Blue?
I don't know what he is, other than a puddy tat. He showed up at Little Chick's sister's house and insisted on crashing their party.Delete
What an odd name for a cat. I love odd names for cats, though. ;)ReplyDelete
They were going to name him Carter but decided to go with the full name. Favorite Young Man is a great admirer of President Carter, as am I, post-presidency.Delete
He is a gorgeous kitty! I'm so glad he has a wonderful home now :) And I am loving Miss Conception's little blunder; that is hilarious!!ReplyDelete
The things I think I see and hear are always so much funnier than reality.Delete
I loved this! Sounds like your daughter and mine might be related! As for Jimmy and Little Chick they are indeed darling! Trying to get my reading in early before my eye's give out. aaaahhhh. Have a great day miss thing. Hope all is well in your corner of the world.ReplyDelete
All is well, indeed. After all, we now have a former president in the family. I hope this one doesn't take off to work for Habitat for Humanity.Delete
Did you hear about the mother in Kenya who named her twins Obama and Romney?? Sorry to stray a bit off topic.ReplyDelete
Ooooo, that's awful.Delete
I LOVE that little oopsie about the "Mormon planet". Too funny! What a pretty little kitty, but that lofty moniker's putting a lot of pressure on the poor little fella. We had a Persian cat once who had a more "pure" lineage than our kids. We got him for free, and he came with all kinds of pedigrees and papers, and an impressive multi-word name to match that made him sound like royalty. I didn't want to intimidate the poor little fella with such a weighty name... plus I didn't want him to get too uppity, either... so I dubbed him Smokey. (Or occasionally, Smokey Joe from Kokamo.)ReplyDelete
The Hurricane always makes me laugh. I don't know if FYM and LC actually call out "President Jimmy Carter" when they want the cat to come, but if they do, then it's pretty funny.Delete
gorgeous kitty. love his coat.ReplyDelete
President Jimmy Carter thanks you, Jaya.Delete
Wow. What could Saturday Night Live do with that "miss conception"?ReplyDelete
Juli, I picture Miss Conception as a regular character who always misunderstands what's being said, but in a way that's hilarious. It would be kind of like Roseann Roseannadanna complaining about "violins" on television. Gosh, I still miss Gilda Radner.Delete
Love all your misconceptions! And LC and PC are beautiful.ReplyDelete
Thank you, my oceangirl.Delete
I love the Miss Conception story. Too bad it won't teach those people a thing, those who don't believe we are getting warmer here. I love the cat and LC.ReplyDelete
I'm always late for the party. Love President Jimmy Carter...he looks like my cat Chopper. I miss Chopper.ReplyDelete
