So I was browsing through the Internet Archive, when I came across a book from 1879, and decided it looked nice, and peeked in, and this illustration was in the first pages —
YOUR ASS PUSSY?
YOUR ALL PUSSY?
I don’t know what this cat is saying, but I don’t think it’s a compliment.
Oh wait, the book is “Letters from a cat”, right? Maybe “your(s) aff(ectionately, ) pussy”, then? Phew, good thing I didn’t hit publish and make myself look like an ass. Then again, am not a pussy i.e. don’t possess the dignity of a cat; will hit publish anyway.
Edit, a few hours later: Oh, and the book has an introduction. By the cat’s owner, a little girl. Who keeps referring to it as Pussy. Over and over and over again. And in this horribly fallen year of 2012, her words are deeply, darkly hilarious.
I… I have no words.
This goes on for 26 pages.
