Saturday morning Tom and Jerry- and I get my first donation!

My lovely daughter is watching Tom and Jerry this morning. She is supposed to empty the dishwasher and clean her room and I am supposed to motivate her. But, she put in a newer Tom and Jerry movie. Tom and Jerry's house has been destroyed by a wrecking ball. Tom rescued Jerry at the last minute and now is trying to get Jerry to leave him alone. Hi-Jinks will follow. Oh my they have met a sage and his side kick. Oh my Tom talked and Now Jerry talked.  Goodness me, the prophetic dog and flea are teaching them to get along through song. Oh my. I kind of miss 1955 even though I was not alive then. Oh...why can't we all just get along! That is what Butters said to the terrorists who hijacked Rocky-Rocket and blew up the imagination wall. Never found out how that one ended...
Great, now the dog and his flea has been kidnapped by stupid people who want to sell them for medical research and Tom is being intimidated by mean alley cats which I think are also confused about their sexuality. And we have another song about dirt and nasty things. This is not the Tom and Jerry of days gone by, now the mouse will save the day, and they will learn to love each other in the end.

I other news, I achieved my goal of getting a link on the Eye of Polyphemus who has a lot more followers than I. This is not so good as I have no funny stories to tell today and all those links will be wasted.

Oh my goodness!!! In an unforeseen plot twist, Tom and Jerry have found a waif. Robin Starling who is an orphan and lives under a bridge whose wonderful father died an expedition to stop global warming and whose Aunt Fig was horrible and the girl ran away. Perhaps she will next turn to prostitution but not drugs and be rescued by Richard Gere.
And we just see Aunt Fig, it is Ursula from Disney's "Little Mermaid," and now her and the butler are singing.

And I got my first donation. This should warrant it's own post but I'm watching Ursula Aunt Fig sing about money.
The generous donation came from an old friend of mine that I have not seen in a couple years. I'm not sure how he found The Lazy Farmer but he may be one of the clever people who tried doing a websearch for "The Daily Strumpet."

Now Robin has been rescued by one of those really macho sort of brown skinned people who turn out to be of another gender trapped in the wrong body and over compensate by wearing tight uniforms and dark aviator shades. I think this is kind of an unfair stereo type. Perhaps a bit racist. But what do I know...

Update: After I posted Tom and Jerry got in a big food fight and destroyed the kitchen. In what I would say was a wise decision, Ursula decided to donate them to the guy down the street who sells animals for medical research. Tom and Jerry have yet to get a bit to eat as they keep getting in fights. Robin's father has been found alive and Robin has been locked in the attic.
I will leave you all with this cliff-hanger!

Observation: Why is Ursula Aunt Fig driving Cruella DeVille's car? And why does she share the same butler? Are they from the ACME branch of the Hollywood Temp agency?


  1. Well, Budd, I WAS there in 1955 (barely), and I, too long for the days when entertainment didn't have to contain a politically correct message, but was allowed to simply entertain. By the way, a friend sent me the information about politacal correctness that you see, below:

    "Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

  2. The really sad thing is that history is now viewed differently. The things that you and I think were wonderful are thought of as scandalous and the things we think are scandalous now are viewed as wonderful.
    Rather sad I think.
