Jan is So Fired
Last year Jan agreed to help us join again with Romeo the cat and participate in National Hairball Awareness Day, which will be on April 27 this year. All she had to do was brush the kitties with the FURminator provided and make a fur creation with their fur. Click here if you need to refresh your memory of the fur creature she made for us last year. You'd think we would have learned by now the only thing Jan can create is chaos.
This year Jan collected kitty fur and spent 3 days making our celebrity entry, even stayed up till 2 a.m. one night. Are you ready?
We doubt you can recognize this guy, so let us give you a hint. Never mind, forget the hint. You'd never guess, so we'll just tell you. This is Bill Gaither. Yes, the Southern Gospel singer / musician.
There was a shortage of light fur, as our kitties are mostly dark, and Rusty was most uncooperative about shedding at the time. So, if we are to be honest, our Bill (not the real Bill ) is an honest-to-goodness Mr. Potato Head.
Bill, we hang our heads in shame. This looks nothing like you. Well, except for the nose. Jan did get that right. But we chose you because we like to watch YouTube videos of the Gaither Vocal Band or listen to your Homecoming radio show online sometimes. We hope you will forgive us for Jan's ten thumbs and lack of imagination. But, hey, who knows but you might become famous after appearing on our Funny Farm blog!
People.com posted 10 of the entries today.. (Ours is not included.) Just click on the "Next" button to view them.
If you have a Facebook account, FURminator will do a Facebook page, with one tab with the five finalists where people can vote, and another tab with the complete gallery.. (It's not up yet.)
UPDATE: FURminator has now posted all the fur creatures on their Facebook page. Just click on "Fur Creatures Contest." You can click the link to view all the entries individually. (Hover over bottom of any photo and it will tell you name of celebrity and who created it, plus if you click on that info, you will go to their blog.) If you aren't on Facebook, you can get an overview of all the entries here but can't view them individually or vote.
Sam regrets laughing at Jan's first Bill Gaither attempt. In retrospect, it wasn't so bad. It just didn't resemble anything remotely human.
Well, Jan, we are serious. You are so-o-o-o-o fired!
Unless you promise not to volunteer and embarrass us again next year. The choice is yours.
