Cats or Dogs?
it looks like Mrs Olsen left her coffee cup on the top of the car again.
Hooey. It’s truey.
Nice try, though
No matter how thin you slice it, it’s still baloney.
I’ve had dogs who can make a very contented sound when being petted just right. Sounds like purring. Clearly this child hasn’t done her research properly.
Sure, it’s a vacant premise, but the listing says it’s charming and has a great location.
They DON’T know that purring=contentment. The reason cats purr is a bit of a mystery. A dying cat will purr. And they only do it as a response to humans. I think it means “You’re my friend.”
`Oh, you can’t help that,’ said the Cat: `we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.’
`How do you know I’m mad?’ said Alice.
`You must be,’ said the Cat, `or you wouldn’t have come here.’
Alice didn’t think that proved it at all; however, she went on `And how do you know that you’re mad?’
`To begin with,’ said the Cat, `a dog’s not mad. You grant that?’
`I suppose so,’ said Alice.
`Well, then,’ the Cat went on, `you see, a dog growls when it’s angry, and wags its tail when it’s pleased. Now I growl when I’m pleased, and wag my tail when I’m angry. Therefore I’m mad.’
`I call it purring, not growling,’ said Alice.
`Call it what you like,’ said the Cat.
Hooey. Now there’s a word you don’t hear very often.
Hooey is hooey. Unfortunately, much of it is learned as a kid listening to the adults talking around Thanksgiving dinne…
Mrs. Olsen gets to look smart for a change. Golly!
This sounds like one of those logic problems you have to solve in order to get a decent IQ score:
purring:contentment::wagging:_________ OR purring:cats::wagging:________
This kid has just taken a meta-analytical view of the 2 propositions.
A child might have actually learned something from a teacher in this strip. At long last!
Frazz is exactly right.
Not sure what was learned; this kid’s intelligence seems to change depending on which way the wind blows. She can calculate fractions and understands all about the specious nature of political discourse, yet she tosses of that preposterous argument?
I tried to refrain from getting technical on this, however….A dog’s tail wag can be a sign of it being aggressive state as well. Especially if it is held erect during the wag.
Frazz just supplied a great response when approached with religious doctrine.
Preach it, Frazz!
