Soup of the Day

Well, hooray, it is finally my turn to post.  I am often forgotten around here because I'm so quiet.  Oh, who am I? Sorry,  I forget to introduce myself.  I'm Sam, the largest and floofiest of the Funny Farm cats.

Update: Sorry, guess I shouldn't have tried to fool you. Scylla, Socks, Atemesia & Fenris guessed correctly.  I'm not Sam. He's a dog.  I'm actually Rusty. But I wanted to show you why we've started doing some individual posts. You all know us as the (Furry) Funny Farmers instead of as individuals, so we're trying to introduce ourselves. We hope you'll get to know and recognize each one of us.  So, no, SSA&F, you aren't confused. You just know us a little better than we thought anyone might. You have a sharp eye.

As you can see, we didn't get to re-size the items in our sidebars yesterday, but we did get a new page created.    We're doing our best to get around to visit so don't give up hope on us just because we don't get to leave a comment. 

Our friend Katie of Katiez Furry Mews has opened The Purple Kattery at Bonanzle.  She would love to know you stopped by to visit her booth.

It's nearly 10 pm Monday and we haven't even had dinner yet, so I'm going to leave you with the this. I hope it puts a smile on your face. 

If restaurants functioned like Microsoft....

Patron: Waiter!

Waiter: Hi, my name is Bill, and I'll be your Support Waiter. What seems
to be the problem?

Patron: There's a fly in my soup!

Waiter: Try again, maybe the fly won't be there this time.

Patron: No, it's still there.

Waiter: Maybe it's the way you're using the soup; try eating it with a
fork instead.

Patron: Even when I use the fork, the fly is still there.

Waiter: Maybe the soup is incompatible with the bowl; what kind of bowl
are you using?

Patron: A SOUP bowl!

Waiter: Hmmm, that should work. Maybe it's a configuration problem; how
was the bowl set up?

Patron: You brought it to me on a saucer; what has that to do with the
fly in my soup?!

Waiter: Can you remember everything you did before you noticed the fly in
your soup?

Patron: I sat down and ordered the Soup of the Day!

Waiter: Have you considered upgrading to the latest Soup of the Day?

Patron: You have more than one Soup of the Day each day??

Waiter: Yes, the Soup of the Day is changed every hour.

Patron: Well, what is the Soup of the Day now?

Waiter: The current Soup of the Day is tomato.

Patron: Fine. Bring me the tomato soup, and the check. I'm running late

Waiter leaves and returns with another bowl of soup and the check.

Waiter: Here you are, Sir. The soup and your check.

Patron: This is potato soup.

Waiter: Yes, the tomato soup wasn't ready yet.

Patron: Well, I'm so hungry now, I'll eat anything.

Waiter leaves.

Patron: Waiter! There's a gnat in my soup!

The check:

Soup of the Day ................................... $5.00
Upgrade to newer Soup of the Day .................. $2.50
Access to support ................................. $1.00

  1. Oh Sam you are indeed the floofiest and funniest kitty! That was some joke - I'm still laughing!

    I hope you get your dinner soon - tell Jan her new style blog is lovely! I hope you upgraded her soup!

    Take care

  2. Hey there Sam
    Nice to see you on the blog!
    I liked your joke...I suppose there was no way the patron could have left the restaurant either!...so he probably simply ate the soup....fly and all!

  3. HELLO FUNNY FARMERS!!! We have missed visiting with you! Thanks for not forgetting uSSSSS!!!!


  4. Hello there Sam, you sure are a handsome dude! We liked the MS-Soup, but it needs seasoning!

  5. Cute soup story, Sam. And you are furry fluffy, nice to meet you.

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  6. Wait we thoughts you were Rusty. Are you trying to trick us. You don't look a bit like Samaritan to us. Loved the soup joke, but we are totally confused about your identity. ~AFSS

  7. Hiya Sam! You are a cutie pie! And we want to let all of you know, we have an award for you today!

  8. MOL.....we loved the Soup of the Day.....and how true!!!!!!!!!!

    Your new layout is looking grand, Jan.

    Sam, it was so good hearing from you....you are great!!!!!!!!! xxxxxxx

  9. Hi, Sam, you look like a sweetheart!...and you're funny too!!...Have a happy day!...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

  10. Sam you are quite a handsome floofy kitty!

  11. I love the soup of the day. Hi Sam, nice to meet you.

  12. Nice to see you Sam! Thanks for sharing the very cute Microsoft joke!

  13. Now that was pretty funny Rusty!

  14. Oh Rusty, all of us that know Jan . . . well . . . we understand the mix up in the names. Not to worry. She loves all of you bunches. If it help any the mom her only had two kids and there were days when she was upset with them she would call each other by the wrong name. What made it really bad was that one was a boy and one a girl. Obviously, we understand!

  15. Wonderinf if Jan is going to get a schedule where a certain day of the week is yours and yours alone to post?

  16. OK, you got us, Rusty - just proves you really do need to have indidual posts. Sorry, our bad, nice to meet YOU, Rusty:)

    Woos - Phantom, Thunder, and Ciara

  17. Dope. Hi Rusty. Sam, I'll have to meet you later.

  18. ROFL!! Oh, disengaged vacation brain is my only excuse! Sorry Rusty!

  19. We came late so we didn't get too fooled by the name thing. We mix up names all the times though, so it wouldn't surpise us at all if our mom put the wrong name fo rour post! We like the idea of meeting everyone individually though!

  20. Hi Sam
    Pleased to meet you - you have lovely furs. We are still getting mixed up with who is called what name at the Funny Farm but we are trying very hard to get it right by the third guess!!
    We liked your funny.
    Luv Hannah & Lucy

  21. Lol. And if you're not careful the MicroSoup will freeze up on you.

  22. SS is old and can't be confused much more. We know Sam is not a cat.

    Hope you get your dinner soon. I give SS the works if my dinner is not on the mat by 6.30pm.

  23. Well, we are used to having the wrong names applied to us. Can you believe Mommy called Youngest Boy Bean Fenris. We are not sure who was the most upset with Mommy Youngest Boy Bean or Fenris they both were very annoyed with her. And she is always calling ELDEST & YOUNGEST BOY BEANS by the each others name. She gets "the meanest looks" from them when she does.

    We are glad we are going to get to know you all as individuals Rusty. ~AFSS

  24. Oh Rusty!!! You are still the floofiest of the kitties and the funniest!!


    And Sam, you are just too clever!!

    Take care

  25. Thank dog and praise cheeses fur the header pikh -

    That's how I know who's on furst...


  26. i will really enjoy getting to know all of you individually. Rusty, that microsoft thingie was verreh funneh!

  27. If only we could get decent support from Microsoft. I'd gladly pay a dollar!
    BTW, your blog is really coming together nicely!

  28. Hi, Rusty!
    Haaaa! I guess Jan has been working very hard... to scramble your names!
    Kisses and hugs

  29. Ooh - I like the new look of your blog. And I do like the new individual posts too because you're such a large family that I have to admit, it's hard to keep track sometimes! :-)

    Honey the Great Dane

  30. Rusty, that was a great trick! Mommy should have noticed that you weren't Sam! Mommy says that she doesn't want any of that soup, thank you very much! :)

    Love, uSSSSS

  31. This is what happens when you outsource your soup technical support to know-nothings who can only read from a script ...

  32. We laffed at the restarant joke. And it explains why we are usin a Mac these days... MOL!

  33. Floofy Sam is a handsome orange boy!


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
