Is it finally my turn? Are you sure? I thought you had all forgotten about me by now. But I'm Percy and I'm still one of the Funny Farmers.
The first note of business is to let you know the farm theme photo header was made by Gracie's mom.
We have really enjoyed reading the performance reviews around the blogosphere the past few days. At least one of you admitted being bribed with num nums, a few of you we suspect were bribed but since you didn't specifically cop to it, we'll accept your human really is perfect, and all of your reviews were interesting and entertaining.
Which reminds me, I have a story to tell on us Funny Farmers about one of the reviews. But first, we need to explain that whenever we try to search for anyone we know on Twitter, Twitter swears profusely that some cat or dog doesn't exist - even if we have the correct @name.
Saturday we read the review by Zippy, Sadie and Speedy, collectively known as the Kattonic Cats. We saw their Twitter name and went right over to follow them before we forgot about it. Our plan was to copy and paste right from their blog and send them a tweet, and then click on their link in the tweet to reach their profile page. The perfect plan. Well, you know Murphy's Law, anything that can go wrong will.
Feeling really pleased with ourselves, we sent this tweet: @kattonic cats Hey, we're reading your purr-fur-mance review and thought we better follow you now, before we forget.
We didn't notice the space in the name, so when we merrily clicked on the link in the tweet ... oh, no! We were on the profile page of a complete stranger ... and his tweets were not in English.
We tried a search for @KattonicCats and as expected, Twitter told us they don't exist. Later, Zippy, Sadie and Speedy left their correct link on our post and, you guessed it, it was the one Twitter said it couldn't find. (We're @jansfunnyfarm in case any of you are interested. We would hate for you to get lost on a strange funnyfarm.)
But meanwhile, we had sent a stranger a message that wouldn't make any sense to him. In fact, we'd love to know how "purr-fur-mance review" translates into his language. And we dearly hope "follow you now" doesn't translate as the same word as "stalk." We did send an apology in 140 words or less but with our luck it was probably as cryptic as the first.
Today we have a video of living creations that will fascinate you. Or they did us. The imaginations of some humans is amazing. We hope you enjoy it, but we do want to emphasize we don't consider them "animals," as their inventor calls them.

And with this we have to give the typing chair and keyboard back to Jan so she can get back to designs for our Zazzle store. She has been working on something different and is posting 3 new designs today.
