On The Grammar of Cats

Ridiculous historical speculation

I was perusing one of those LOLCat threads the other day (you know the ones, like this) when it occured to me to wonder why so many cats apparently can’t spell or use decent grammar. Then I suddenly remembered that Mark Twain had something to say on the matter…

You may say a cat uses good grammar. Well, a cat does — but you let a cat get excited once; you let a cat get to pulling fur with another cat on a shed, nights, and you’ll hear grammar that will give you the lockjaw. Ignorant people think it’s the noise which fighting cats make that is so aggravating, but it ain’t so; it’s the sickening grammar they use.
– Mark Twain “A Tramp Abroad”

So the question is, did Mark Twain invent Caturday? Did he!? 🙂
