Throw Your Hands Up At Me

I feel a certain measure of shame when I tell you that Ellie and I have been watching this for a substantial part of the morning. (For those of you who didn't catch that one on its first rounds, it's a short video that dares to ask the question, "If Destiny's Child were working-class kittens from northern England, what would they sound like?") But not too much shame, because it's still bitterly cold and snowing, to boot. I'm running out of educational options.

Please take special note of the small, white kittens, whom Ellie particularly loves because of their "cuuuute bums", "bums" that are actually pink, fuzzy, kitty coinpurses, I fear.

Whoa, that one in the yellow hat has a cigarette hanging out its mouth, WTF? Lol, where do you find this stuff?

drnurse said...

Thanks for the laugh. I thought it was hilarious, my thriteen year old daughter, however did not find it funny at all...which in a strange way was hilarious in itself!

Melanie said...

HHH: Of course he has a cigarette. Kittens in New Zealand don't smoke?

drnurse: She didn't?!? Whaaa? In that case, I have no idea how we'll kill time when Ellie is thirteen.

I occasionally forget about rathergood. Also? I always thought it was "Show your independence", not "throw your hands up at me." And if she asks any questions about the um... coinpurses, just tell her Crouton Lung will be home soon to explain.

BLC: "Show your independence!" Ha! But you KNOW I just frantically Googled the lyrics to make sure I wasn't the one getting them wrong.

Smoking cats are always a hit!

Sadly, that amuses me as much as it does a toddler. I'm not sure what this says about me.

Oh, kay...yeah, not so much, I think there might even be laws forbidding it ;)

I watched this four times and realized how lackluster my children's early youth must have been without the internets. Nobody smoked on Sesame Street.

Melanie said...

Ellie doesn't know from cigarettes. She thinks he has a sucker in his mouth, lucky kitty.

The cigarette is divine; my kids would launch into an anti-drug speech within seconds.

They are brainwashed.

I hope they never teach them bad things about internet addiction. I smell intervention.

Oh, wow! The little orange guy looks like my Hazelbean. She plays the harpsichord, though. I'm guessing that's just not funky enough to join up with these bad kitties!

I love street musicians.

Seriously, I have to show this to my son, whose stuffed animals have a band. (They mostly do U2 covers) Look out internet.

I find it disturbing, yet strangely compelling. I watched it twice. Consider my hands thrown up at you (in a good way, of course).

Heh! I feel better about our own educational choices now :)

Thanks and hope the weather becomes more cooperative soon!

Wow. It's like a train wreck, I can't stop watching.
