Dear Mr. Panda,
I am writing in protest of your recent cartoon. (Pandas mourn death of Maurice Sendak) It is my feeling that you are exploiting the death of noted children’s book author and illustrator, Maurice Sendak, for the express purpose of allowing the panda kindergarten to run amok.
As a member of SCCWI (Society of Cartoon Cats of Whidbey Island) I must also take exception to the cavalier treatment of your feline characters.
Furthermore, I do NOT believe that “rumpus” is a verb. This is a blatant example of the verbification of nouns, and will not be tolerated. I am considering suspending my subscription to your publication.
Mehitabel the cat.
The Mighty Mehitabel has spoken. All heed the words of Angry Cat.
Yes! Heed the cat! (especially the panda kindergarten!) Mehitabel has been known to speak quite loudly around the house. Woe to those who ignore her.
Mehitabel is overly educated I’m afraid. Hard to keep up with the likes of her!
Yes. She has a masters degree in “pedantic-ness”
