An Ouchie and a Tumbly

Bloggie friends!!

I may not be a fan of the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, but he did come out with the bestest insult I've ever heard in a long time! 

He called his fellow councillors:

"Great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies"

Ouch!

Now here is a snapshot of our routine taken at 6 am this Monday morning!


Charlie busy eating, Gumtree busy watching Bird TV and me busy playing referee! 

p.s. HUGE congratulations to penandpaints of The Write Idea blog and the publication of her utterly adorable children's story Tumbly Mouse Sneaks out of the House! It was 8 pages of utter enchantment! Thank you, Cate!

Have a great week y'all!

Your mayor has a keen sense of observation!
Referee? Are you saying Charlie and Gumtree were picking on each other?

Wendy aka Quillfeather said...

"Great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies" Haha!

Do you have a whistle to go with your referee position? :)

Prancer Pie said...

That's a good one! MOL! Have a great week, furriends. XOXO

Kea said...

May I use that insult for my adjoining neighbours?

I hope your week goes well, that you're not still too swamped with work. :-)

ABBY said...

Oh my that is original.

Hope Charlie is enjoyin his meal and Gumtree is finding a riveting scene outside.

xoxox

Bird TV? I love it!

Susan Kane said...

He called them what??? Clever man...some may have had to fumble with their dictionaries.

Mark said...

While I've had some difficulty accepting some of Boris' policies, I still love him as a gentleman and a scholar. He comes out with some right crackers, and occasionally does actually have a good policy.

William Kendall said...

6 AM? Entirely too early!

Julia Hones said...

Thanks, Old Kitty. That looks like a peaceful morning. Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog yesterday! Have a great week.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sounds like your kitties have the life! Have a great week!

Manzanita said...

I suppose he has muscles that ripple in every direction and is Mr. Super-Brain.
I remember when Charlie said, "Out of my way, Gummy Boy." They must get in each others face in the morning.

Brian said...

That was was preety funny insult! Howdy boys, nice to see you!

Mr Puddy said...

Busy Monday ?
Charlie, you are busy with food , I love that ; )
You all have Fun !
xox

LTM said...

And look at lucky cat with the right paw up! Does right paw mean lucky in love or lucky in business??? I can't remember.

Regardless, Charlie and Gumtree area adorable, and that insult is hilarious. Supine invertebrate jellies... :D

Have a super week, my friend~ <3

klahanie said...

That's some classy name calling!

jamieayres.com said...

Oh my gosh, I don't even know what that means, but I love it:-)

Norma Beishir said...

So...Gumtree is watching Bird TV, is he?

Eileen said...

Wow, I wonder how many of the council members understood the insult!

That's an interesting place for Charlie to eat his breakfast. Does Gumtree try to sneak a bite or too?

Have a great week!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Ha! Try to say Boris's comment five times fast. :D

Clarissa Draper said...

That is a classic insult. Love it!

The Chair Speaks said...

Wow! Breakfast at 6am! That's early! Purrs!

Minerva Black the shoppe keeping cat said...

ha ha! This made me smile ....

Have a lovely week. Minerva ~

Tracy Jo said...

Ouch! That is a good one. I am not good at insults in the moment but I sure can think of them after I walk away. Lol!! LOVE your pictures. Good day to all three of you!

mshatch said...

Ha! Bird tv. I have that at my house, too :)

And what a great insult!

RaShelle Workman said...

The kitties are adorable.

And that is a great insult. LOL

Jayne said...

You have a 6am routine?! I am very impressed, and slightly disturbed I have no 6am routine. I fear this is why my novel is taking ages. Utilise all the hours, Jayne! As for Boris, he certainly knows a good turn of phrase.

The Furries of Whisppy said...

Gumtree has his full attention on Bird TV and Charlie's full attention is on his food. Too funny!

Tamago said...

I had to check online dictionary for words between great and jellies. (English is not my first language.) And yes, I'd say Ouch :-) At least I learned new words though! Have a wonderful week!!

Maria McKenzie said...

What an insult--I think that's that strongest one I've ever heard!

Cute kitties, as always, and Congrats to Cate!

Margo Berendsen said...

I dearly love creative insults like this - as opposed to the way overused uncreative four letter kinds. There are several websites where you can go read lovely Shakespearean insults! One website even has a button labeled "Taunt me a second time" - grin!

penandpaints said...

6am? Arggh! I try not to see such times! (Although I was woken at 4.30am by a naughty Millie trying to scratch her way through the landing carpet!)
Thank you very much for the mention, I'm so happy you enjoyed Tumbly's little adventure! :) xx

Jemi Fraser said...

That is an impressive insult! Love it! :)

Summer Ross said...

Great picture- Love the stories you tell of the kitties.

Gail Crane said...

That sounds like typical Boris - never one to pull his punches. How on earth do you manage to be so lively at 6 in the morning?

Hannah and Lucy said...

Mum was amazed when she read your blog - 6.00 a.m. and you were getting ready to go to work. She had to have a nap to get over the shock!
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Marg said...

That is quite an insult by that person. I wouldn't like him either.
Charlie that food looks good and Gum, I bet those birds are very busy having their breakfast. Have a great day.

Katie Isabella said...

Oh how enchanting that book must be. Mommy said she loves that type of book and misses reading sweet stories to her children when they were small. xoxoxo

Romance Book Haven said...

It reminds me of what I always say! There's nothing like a good insult. I can't do it though.

Cezar and Léia said...

What did you say "6 am...early morning"??? oh gosh...I don't do mornings! MOL but I also have some routine here, for instance, I usually MEOWWWWWWWWWW to call my mommy to be near me when I'm eating my cookies and treats! :D
then...I go for another nap!
purrs to you all
love
Luna - WE LOVE LUNA and mom Léia

Marilia said...

What a busy people you are!

KarenMcG said...

"Ouch" is right about the comment by Mayor Johnson.

Hmmm, Gumtree and Charlie seem to be settling in to the new routine quite well.

We hope you have a terrific week!

April McLeod said...

I love a guy with a large vocabulary! I could almost forgive a man in politics for using intelligent and colorful words...lol! Looks like quite the routine your cats have going on!

Cynthia Chapman Willis said...

"Great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies" is both creative and hilarious.
Meanwhile, Charlie and Gumtree are as adorable as ever. : )

Patsy said...

That was a good insult!

Al said...

Ouch!

We had a prime minister down this way that was very noted for his insults to the opposition.

The Golden Eagle said...

That is the single best insult I've ever heard. I wish politicians in the US Congress came up with stuff like that!

Bird TV. Makes sense. :)

meowmeowmans said...

MOL! We know a few people with whom we'd like to use that insult. ;)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Now that was an insult of epic proportions if I ever heard one! LOL :)

C. Lee McKenzie said...

You are one busy cat mother, I can tell. Hope they appreciate you.

Theresa Milstein said...

That is an excellent insult. I wish American politicians could be insulting with such style.

Medeia Sharif said...

He has quite a vocabulary. I would never have come up with that on the spot, unless I rehearsed it in my head.

Susan Fields said...

Now THAT is an insult - well done!

Athena said...

Ah yes, bird TV. Really fun to watch!

Rick Watson said...

Wow! Talk about a verbal smack up side the head :)

Katie Isabella said...

A great good meowning to you! xoxoxox

Purrfect Haven said...

we are taking a lead from you! Love Helen, Darcy and Bingley xxx

Timmy Tomcat said...

Methinks we want to use that quote... Now if only the opportunity...
