While we’re at it, I demand punny versions of other clothing stores. Coming soon to a mall near you (if I get my way):
Labercrombie & Bitch
Barneys Mew York
Johnston and Purrphy
Are you listening, American Eagle? I have a feeling that American Beagle Outfitters would actually turn out to be pretty profitable. Have you realized how many crazy dog people are out there? (Present company included, of course.)
Get on it, AE… blaze that trail and usher in a new era of punny pet apparel stores.
I warn you – the jokes below might make you giggle, but they’ll probably make your dog (and possibly any other people around you) groan. Potential for groaning increases exponentially in relation to the number of times you tell said joke.
However, they might make you giggle every time. That’s what counts, right? Continue reading →
You may recall it’s an annual tradition, my writing a post for Seuss-ian recognition. (If you are new to this blog of the furry, or if your memory is just a bit blurry, you can find posts from a past calendar year by vigorously clicking first here and then here.)
A dramatic reenactment of the creation of today’s post, via giphy.com.
We begin with names that are loaded with pun – I just pray that this practice does not make you run. Although I do slightly fear your reprisal, I’ve already done puns based on dear Mr. Geisel. So today’s offerings relate to the Academy knock – without further adieu, meet Sandra SeaGullock.
A word of hope – don’t fear the task of seeking publication. Seuss was rejected many a time before his eventual proliferation.
Given that flights of whimsy were often his wont, I bet Seuss would approve of this fun elefont.
If you’re thinking of writing in classic Seussian style, you might use these animal sounds for the extra mile. (Then you can read it to a homeless dog or a cat, and they would totally appreciate your doing of that.)
If celebrating this man’s birthday would fill you with glee, make sure to decorate with Sneetches and a Truffula Tree.
In addition to the birthday of this wordsmithing light, the Oscars are airing on this Sunday night. If this awards show news fills you with great jubilation, you might want to make it a pun-filled celebration.
Finally, I share today’s video installment. I’ve selected some Pugs for your viewing enjoyment. (I did consider sharing a feline film instead, but I flipped a coin that landed right on its head.)
We’re now at the end of this year’s novel-length rhyme. I hope that you had a splendiferous time. Should you want to leave words of a commenting type, I’ll remind you that the time for poetic license is ripe!
I’m not sure what distracted me on Friday (something shiny?), but Saturday was devoted to hanging out with some fantastic pet bloggers.
Warning: if you’re a perfectionist like me, you might get sucked into this quiz. (I did – thanks my pal from to The Dog Park, who shared this link with me and distracted me today.) How many countries can you name?
Today’s video is one of my favorites of all time.
That armadillo is my everything.
In case you missed it, here’s what we’ve been up to on the blog this week:
I like animals who break the mold. Those who refuse to conform to peer pressure and boldly look outside their own species for friends. After all, who am I to argue with generations of Disney movies saluting interspecies friendships?
(And yes, I’m totally aware that I have done way more than two posts about animal odd couples. However, the number three bazillion didn’t yield any catchy rhyming titles with a completely random pop culture reference. I’m sure you understand.)
First up, your punny pet names: Fawn Luc-Picard and James Flea Kirk.
