Seal of Approval

Yes, it is I — the Seal of Approval, a benevolent spirit offering unconditional approval for every misstep, so your day doesn’t have to suck so much.

Say you overslept this morning? I approve. Burnt the French toast? J’approuve! Got the hiccups during the client presentation? Approve-o-rama!

Accidentally backed into a row of Harley-Davidsons, which toppled like dominoes onto a painter’s ladder, sending a can of Robin’s Egg Blue into a waiter’s tray at Saul Zapata’s Kosher Taqueria, which flung an entire order of sizzling gefilte-fajitas into a gentle arc over traffic and through the sunroof of a passing Mercedes?

A Breakfast Lament

“I’m a big girl now,” said Princess, “and I’m tired of Cocoa Puffs”
“I want to eat what you eat, Mom, with fruits and nuts and stuffs.”
So Mom brought down the Muselix, and she poured some in a bowl,
And Princess set herself upon her wise and womanly goal.

The oats were bland, the nuts were hard, the fiber chafed her teef.
She thought, “if this is grown-up food, adulthood must be grief.”
But persevered she through the meal, then stared with forlorn eyes,
“I ate a whole bowl of this stuff, and there’s no plastic prize?

Bunny Thrill-laaaaaah!

From Flickr user Yiie, here’s “Otis (Dutch rabbit, now 11 months old) sleeping. She had her paws up and was moving them slowly, almost looked like she was dancing to Michael Jackson’s Thriller song.”

Put me down at once! And bring me cheese! And explain why I sound like a bird!

Behold, the Power of Chocolate

According to science, chocolate contains potent neurotransmitters that can elevate one’s mood. But shape it like an Easter egg, wrap it in foil, and introduce it to a pair of kittens, and it can drive them crazy without their even eating it.

Hello, I’m Your Avon Representative…

“I was passing through the neighborhood, and… Well, I was kind of near your neighborhood… All right, to be totally honest, I was on the interstate three miles away with the windows rolled up, but all the same I thought you might be interested in our line of fine fragrances, maybe get you a deal on the bulk rate.”

The Strong, Silent, Ceramic Type

Y’know, ain’t nothing better in life than that one true friend. Like me and Hubie here. He don’t talk much, but he’s always here for me. Sometimes we just sit here for hours, watchin’ time go by. Got nothin’ to say, got nothin’ really needs sayin’. He knows what I’m thinkin’, an’ I know what he’s thinkin’. We’re tight like that.

Pa-Sickie II: Honeydew Boogaloo

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the power of honeydew melon popsicles so amazing, they can transform kitties into pups with a 2/3 success rate.

PS: The swimming pool’s a smart idea, ’cause them popsicles is messy.
PPS: PA-SICKIE!

Consternation and Befuddlement!

After a relaxing brandy in the members’ lounge, Lord Mumphrey left the exclusive Cat and Mouse Club for his rendezvous with Miss Penelope Hoosterwooster.

Emerging into the gaslit evening, it dawned on him that the check clerk had given him the wrong hat. “This can only mean,” he mused, “that somewhere, a mouse is attempting to hail a carriage from within the confines of a size seven bowler.”
