A Cappella Riots

RUSTY:  What?  Not again!  This is our favorite day of the week and we don't get to mouth off ... um, I mean, we don't get to post a Mousebreath interview today?

SAM:  Doesn't look like it.  Unless you count a recycled audition poster as an interview.  Does it count?

MICAH:  Of course it doesn't count!  Well, maybe... at least Mousebreath won't be just a gigantic blank page again. Do stop by Mousebreath to read Attention All Kitties for information on how you can participate.

MERCI:  Let's think of something fun instead of being sad we don't have a real interview today.  I know!  We can tell the story about the local Toastmasters.

BUDDY:  That's a good idea.  The club year runs from July through June.  Yesterday the club had their first meeting of their new year. The theme was - you guessed it - Happy New Year!  Jan asked us if we could help her think of a New Year's resolution for herself.

CYNDI: We are all so perfect, we have no need of resolutions to improve ourselves, but we figure Marcus needs a bit of work so we wrote some for Marcus.  I don't think he appreciates our efforts, though. 

Our resolution suggestions for Marcus -

1) I will not incite a riot by running through the house screeching in terror every time Jan is on the other side of a closed door.

2)  I will not steal Jan's underwear and then dance all over the dog pen with it.

3)  I will not drink the juice from a can of beets so Jan thinks I am hemorrhaging.

4)  I will not roll my toys under the desk and then try to roll Jan's chair out of my way.

MARCUS:  Do not believe a word!   I have never done any of those things.  I am totally innocent and - Well, maybe not so innocent with number four.  And possibly a bit, just a bit guilty of number one, but I would hardly call getting the others to join me in a few choruses of an a cappella song "inciting a riot".  By the way, I sing high tenor, Merci is our soprano, Buddy is our beatboxer and Sam is our bass.

PERCY:  Jan said she couldn't really relate to any of those suggestions, but we did help her decide on a resolution.  She resolved to just be herself.  That's okay with us.  But then, who else could she be?

Friday is also time for the Pet Parade blog hop, hosted by by Rascal and Roscoe.  It is co-hosted by Bionic Basil, Barking From the Bayou, Love is being owned by a husky, and us (Jan's Funny Farm).

There are two parts to the blog hop - your blog url and social media, so be sure to sign up for both. 

When you link up with the blog hop, we encourage you to visit other participating blogs.


  1. I read those resolutions and had to check the date as I thought I'd been asleep for a few months - then realised it's the start of the Toastmasters new year! The resolutions are very funny - made me laugh!

  18. Oh my goodness! Those resolutions for Marcus -- especially the one about the beets -- gave us quite a laugh.

    We think Jan's resolution is terrific. Of course, we love Jan, so if she is herself, that's fine and dandy with us! :)

    Thanks for co-hosting the Pet Parade. How exciting that it's reached 100.

  21. Um, we could do one again with different questions... We LOVE questions.

  22. We tried to send you something via your contact thingy and it just sits at "sending". And your email thingy doesn't work either. So yes, I think it's time QUINN and Angel brandi get interviewed!
