But the cat came back

The man around the corner said he'd shoot the cat on sight.
He loaded up his shotgun full of nails and dynamite.
He waited... and he waited... 'till the cat came walking round
And ninety-seven pieces of the man was all they found...
But the cat came back the very next day.

I still don't get the whole "superstorm" thing. It was just a hurricane.

When a pretty little black cat runs into a white man's arms, you know something gotta be wrong.Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway!

All of that salt water made the ground sour.

In early November, 8-year-old Porsche was evacuated by rubber boat from Chadwick Island, Toms River, along with his owners, Uranie Roberts and her daughter Carol Baumann.


The cat is Uranie's?

It's because it was actually a post-tropical storm when it made landfall.

Owner is a poor compensator.

squidgod2000: I still don't get the whole "superstorm" thing. It was just a hurricane.


From what I recall from the weather reports at the time, the wind speed was only about equivalent to a Category 1 hurricane, but it merged with a weather system from the Midwest, and thus covered a much larger area than a normal hurricane.

It was called a "superstorm" and not a "hurricane" so that insurance companies didn't have to pay for homeowner claims.

Done in two
 
2013-05-08 03:15:03 PM
As someone who has a cat named Porsche, Im getting a kick.
 
2013-05-08 03:23:00 PM
So their front Porsche is now their back Porsche?
 
2013-05-08 03:26:57 PM
OK, Subby, you got me.  +1

Probably better than a 51-year-old Porsche showing up at your house.

Well I tried to tell you so (yes I did),
But I guess you didn't know,
As the saddest story goes,
Baby, now I got the flow,
'Cause I know it from the start,
Baby, when you broke my heart,
That I had to come again,
And show you that I'm with.

You lied to me,
All those times I said that I loved you,
You lied to me,
Yes, I tried, yes, I tried,
You lied to me,
Even though you know I'd die for you,
You lied to me,
Yes, I cried, yes, I cried.


Return of the cat,
It is,
Return of the cat,
Come on,
Return of the cat,
Oh, my god,
You know that I'll be back,
Here I am.

How many versions of that thing are there?  I'm only familiar with the cartoon.  The song in that one goes:
But the cat came back the very next day
The cat came back.  They thought he was a gonner.
But the came came back.
He just wouldn't stay away yay ay ay...

Ahh. I figured it was because it hit New York City where all the important media-types live and they wanted to make a big deal about it.
 
2013-05-08 04:34:26 PM
Stupid name for a cat but the story gives me the warm fuzzies.

That's the chorus it is a folk song written in the 1800s there are probably 1000 versus written over the years that is one I remember from Boy Scout camp in the 80s

/back when Scouts was about pyromania, guns, and stupid canoe stunts.

What I just learned is that this is not, it seems, originally written in French, which is how I learned it:

Le matou revient
Le jour suivant
Le matou revient il est toujours vivant...

That's a fine older model.  Nothing wrong with that.

Don Gato?

JohnnyRebel88: Don Gato?


Oh, wow! I haven't thought of that song in years!
 
2013-05-08 07:26:29 PM
Oh Señor Don Gato was a cat,
Meow
On a high red roof Don Gato sat.
Meow
He went there to read a letter,
Meow, meow, meow
Where the reading light was better,
Meow, meow, meow
T'was a love note for Don Gato.
How he adored the lady cat, (alternate line: "I adore you," wrote the lady cat.)
Meow
Who was fluffy, white, and nice and fat.
Meow
There was not a sweeter kitty
Meow, meow, meow
In the country or the city
Meow, meow, meow
And she said she'd wed Don Gato.
Oh, Don Gato jumped so happily,
He fell off the roof and broke his knee.
Broke his ribs and all his whiskers,
Meow, meow, meow
And his little solar plexus
Meow, meow, meow
Aye caray!!! cried poor Don Gato. (alternate line: "Ay carramba!" cried Don Gato.)
Well the doctors all came on the run,
Meow
Just to see if something could be done.
Meow
And they held a consultation,
Meow, meow, meow
About how to save their patient,
Meow, meow, meow
How to save Señor Don Gato.
But in spite of everything they tried,
Meow
Poor Señor Don Gato up and died.
Meow
Oh it wasn't very merry,
Meow, meow, meow
Going to the cemetery,
Meow, meow, meow
For the end of poor Don Gato. (alternate line: For the ending of Don Gato.)
As the funeral passed the market square,
Meow
Such a smell of fish was in the air.
Meow
Though the funeral was slated, (alternate line: Though the burial was slated,)
Meow, meow, meow
He became re-animated,
Meow, meow, meow
He came back to life Don Gato.
(optional refrain: For he had nine lives, Don Gato.)


That is going to be in my head all day now, so you can all join in.
