The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Wonderful photo my friend!
You're sooo far ahead of me. It's only 4:48 pm here. Maybe there's some sort of creepy time shift going on? ;)
Such a dignified pose! Is Ted running for office, or submitting photos before an interview?elizabeth-w, About that shift... not creepy time; In jams's world, it's sleepy-time. Our comments... when we say 'em? For him, wee-hours A.M. And his... the time we see 'em? Our morning; jams's P.M. In Central time, not Greenwich, I eat my daily spinwich. - SB the YDD
I love your poem--thanks for helping me get clear on how Earth-time works. :)Oh, and Farscape is on Netflix.Jams, how did you connect to all these Houstonians? Did Elastic find you? Vice versa? Or some other random connection?
You're right Steve, I can hear Ted asking: "Will Senator Frist yield for a question?"
I'm glad you like Ted Jamees. I hope your blog is successful.Ah Elizabeth it depends where you are. London is 5 hours ahead of New York and 8 ahead of LA. I did deliberately adjusted the time to make it look like it was posted on Friday. It is a Friday cat blog entry but I posted on Thrusday. For a grumpy cat he really does a difnified bearing Steve. I shudder to think what sort of policies he would have if elected. I doubt he would be big on socialism but there would be plenty of comfy warm places to sleep and lots of roaring fires!Will Senator Frist yield for a question... if he does not wish to receive a face full of claws???I came across ewbl, and Steve. Ewbl had taken a bit of a pasting for comments she left on a blog I used to be associated with (I had a falling out with the owner - I don't consider 9/11 and 7/7 justice, he did...). The rest is history.I came across Steve thanks to a comment someone left on a post about Gunter Grass. I went to the person's blog, saw Steve had left a comment, I took a look at Steve's blog and once more the rest is history..
Why not get your cat to write your blog?It would be funnier, more intelligent and less stodgy.Now don't take it out on the moggy like that, he can't help being superior.
Pussinboats, my cats consider blogging to be infra dig. so you are stuck with me. if you consider the Poor Mouth to be unfunny, stupid or stodgy then you could try blogging yourself. I will be more than happy to cast a critical eye!
I'm disappointed jams, that our "how we met" story is so bland. Can't you spice it up a bit? For instance, "One day I stumbled across this gorgeous, fart joke filled blog, and I instinctively knew that there could never be any other gassy Infidel in my life."This picture fills the I LOVE TED Fan Club members with great joy. We like kitties with attitude.
Okay how about "battered and bloddy in the FL bearpit" we both retreated to lick our wounds where by chance our virtual eyes met over a particularly noisy botty burp"I feel the need to rotate the cat photos but perhaps there is scope for an all ted all the time blog..
What a beautiful photo!Skittles, The Cathttp://kaboodlecats.blogspot.com
Thanks. We think he's a handsome devil!
