Pet Food

A precious little girl walked into a pet shop and asked with a lisp, “Excuthe me, Mithter, do you keep widdle wabbits?”
The Shopkeeper’s heart melted, and he knelt down beside her and asked, “Do you want a widdle white Wabbit or thoft bwack one?” 
The little girl replied, “I don’t ’think my python gives a thit.”


  1. But you were a (precocious?) little girl. You probably had a python. Named Monty. :)

  2. It was the cat who was called Monty. :)

    1. Well, there you go. I know John Cleese from "A Fish Called Wanda". I've heard he and some of his friends had done other work as well. Something on PBS too. All I remember is that they used to pronounce "Python" as PIE thn. Heh. Then there were the ruttles and the lady with the purple hair who asked people if they were being served. That's about all I know about old British TV. So there was both a snake AND a cat?

    2. There's some other way to pronounce "python"?

    3. As far as Americans are concerned, python is pronounced like it looks. Pentagon too. :) But this is a small thing and should not be brought up even in passing. It is, after all, your language. You are free to pretend the o doesn't exist and you are free to pretend it needs another u. It probably does. You seem to be going around making trouble this morning. Roiling the Irk. Taunting the snakes.

      I almost wish I had watched at least one of those episodes. I've always thought Monty Python was one of the actors. (Or Pythun)

    4. It's night time. I never make trouble in the moning.


You must be at least minimally sober to comment!
