Sibling Revelry

Tried watermarking with Picasa's latest update, love it :)

... and somewhere inside the house a silly teenager can be heard singing to the tune of Jamaican Farewell (The sibling's remarks added in bold.)

My heart is down,
My head is turning around
I have to leave a little cat
Everyday at home

But today is Sunday,
It's our funday
"Hehehe and I suspect,
my cat is gay ..."
"Oh please, he's not YOUR cat, anyway!"
Some love his eyes

Some love his nose,
Some love his bum,
Some his pink pink toes

He is a very cute cat with very big ears
And he'll stay with us for many many years

He has a long neck
Which he stretches like a bird,
And in his litter box
There is a piece of turd.
(yuck ... turd!)

Edited to add : The Dog is also entertained the same way.

And here 's the original song :)

Watermarking experience sounds great. I gotta try it too.

Ritu said...

LOL sounds like my family said...

nice song...and that water marking thing is SOOOOO COOL!! u guys are technologically SO much better than me!!

Indian Home Maker said...

@Mampi Yeah isn't Picassa cool!
I thought the song was so dumb it was funny .... will give them your love.

@Usha Pisharody The cat's a bumless bum :)
The original song has been censored, they forbade me from publishing it here :) There was more about err how the litter box stinks ...
Yes love Jamaican Farewell :)

@Sashu Gay only because it rhymes!

@Ritu Yes, I think it does!

@Mandira Opened Picassa and it offered to upgrade, absent mindedly clicked ok and they have a new look. You add text and your water mark is done. Not at all technologically savvy!
(Gmail has a new look too)

Rhett said...

That was a lovely verse. I wish I could write that way. So, your cat really is that bee-yoo-tee-full? An d.... err... is there turd in his litter box?

Aneela Z said...

well not that I want to drum in stereotypes but with such a perfectly groomed coat, great sense of hygeine and esthetic sense...the cat could audition for a 'queer cat eye for the straight guy'.
Kala tikka please for the cat.

Gauri Gharpure said...
