People and fur people who are Disciples of The Leader Otis,
It’s Thomas. Earlier today, as I was walking through the kitchen, I noticed Brother Oliver sitting on the kitchen table surrounded by food. When I asked him what he was doing, he said, “Well, Sir Thomas, as you know, I love food.” I acknowledged that I was aware of Brother Oliver’s love for food but I did not mention that I think he might love it a little too much. Brother Oliver continued, “So, to further explore my love of food, I have decided to start my own cooking show. It’s going to be called ‘Cooking With Kitties’. What do you think?”
I was silent for a moment as I pondered Brother Oliver’s question, then I replied, “Well, Brother Oliver, I think it’s a great idea, but if you plan to eat anything that you make, don’t you think you should use different ingredients? I mean, there’s nothing on that table that would be good for a kitty to eat!” Brother Oliver looked at the ingredients surrounding him and then said, “What do you mean Thomas? I have a whole turkey right here in front of me! Kitties would eat that!” I said, “Ummmmm… Brother Oliver? That is not a turkey. It’s a ‘Turk’y’. I would have thought, since you are the smartest cat in the house, you would have noticed that.” Brother Oliver looked closely at the box in front of him and then looked very annoyed.
After a long silence I said, “So, Brother Oliver, does this mean the show is over?” Brother Oliver replied, “Well Thomas, it seems the kitchen staff can’t provide me with the quality ingredients my culinary talents demand so, yes, the show’s over.” He then jumped down and wandered off in the direction of our food bowls. I have to admit I was a little disappointed. I got the feeling it would have been a very entertaining show.
