Gail,

Hi. I enjoyed your cat poem, including the skillful alliteration and consonance therein. I was not aware of this website and was pleased to learn of it. Unfortunately, as I was exploring the site, I saw a note that the editor is going to stop posting new content to the site. Best,

Mark

Very nice one, Gail.

This is the announcement that was mentioned. Sorry to see it go after 8 years.. There was some extremely entertaining stuff and the print editions are in a very handy format for bedtime reading.

Dear readers, writers, and random internet stumblers,

Unfortunately I plan to stop posting new content to the Parody website. The good news is that you can continue to enjoy the historical records for as long as the internet shall live (and I promise to finish transferring the full archives to the updated URL!).

You can also purchase print copies to squirrel away in the event that The Simplification comes around destroying such lovely artwork and knowledge as contained herein.

Thanks for 8 years of fun,

The Haikooligan

"the paw that pats, the crescent claw that clings."

Great line, Gail.

I got a kick out of that poem, Gail. The same line Tim mentioned reminds me of this one:

The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!

Congrats!

Martin
