I Need to Speak with Your Manger

Myrrh?! Who the hell brings myrrh to a baby shower?! How about one of you bearded wackos run down to Zabar’s and get me some tuna or a can of Friskies, now that’s a gift I can use! Sheesh, and you call yourselves wise guys!”

You can leave the gold, though.

    Is his name Frank? Because he looks incensed.

        I’ll admit I was pretty proud of that one.

        That is high praise coming from you, Mike. πŸ™‚

      I’ve always suspected that Allein is (or is closely related to) 260Oakley. This pretty much confirms my suspicions! Come on Allein, ‘fess up!

        Oh, that I could claim such association! Alas, I cannot!

        When I would see a good CO post that had a lot of comments that I didn’t have time/inclination to read, I would at minimum do a search for Oakley’s name just to make sure I didn’t miss a good pun! πŸ˜€

    I’m not sure that is ‘quite’ right .. but what do I know .. I’m not a historian.

    “speak with your manger”–HA! That got by me the first time.

      I missed it too until I read your comment. πŸ˜›

    From the comments, what a difference a little ‘a’ can make!! I’d seen this picture before so knew what it meant. My reaction was, “Smart cat!!” Comfy bed. But Mike’s take on it brought a whole new meaning to the picture!!

    When I first saw this on Bored Panda earlier this week I thought someone had stole my photo. I took this nearly exact same picture a year ago and Mike posted it below. But, you can see slight differences in the set up. So, clearly I have a neighbor who also caught this funny moment, AND, this cat must make this squatting in a manger a yearly habit!!

      That one came up in the ‘you may also enjoy’ section. At first I thought it was the same picture but then I realized it was from a different angle and M&J were in the opposite positions. πŸ™‚

    Cat! the herald angels sing … 🎼🎢

      Don’t you mean “the HAIRBALLED angels sing?” πŸ˜‰

    No franken sense!

    I love the expression on kitty’s face, he seems to enjoy Christmas as much as I do πŸ™‚

    If the three guys carrying the three gifts were wise guys rather than wise men, wouldn’t they bring other more, er, adult gifts?

    The only nativity scene I would ever put in my yard.

    Exactly as it should be.
