Happy Birthday to me...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY dear ME...
What? What's that, Peepers? What's that you're babblin' on about now?
It is so.
Yes it is.
Okay, so maybe it isn't.
But Peepers, as a Canadian Kitty, Canada Day SHOULD be about me. If Canada is havin' a birthday, I, Seville the Cat - a kitty who is one hundred percent and TOTALLY Canadian - should be havin'...
It's not the same thing, you say, huh?
*sighs again but more LOUDLY*
So Ms. Know-it-all-Peeperoni-Peepers, tell me this: Is there a special birthday song for Canada on Canada Day?
The National Anthem?
Nah, that can't be right. Peeps sing the Canadian National Anthem three hundred and sixty-five days of the year. Three hundred and sixty-six, in years divisible by four. The National Anthem can't be used as a birthday song, too. I mean, no one can have a birthday every day of the year. That's just about the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.
Boy-oh-boy, Peepers. You sure do come up with some doozies.
No, The Birthday Song, it is.
Only, you know.., The Birthday Song for Canada, instead of for me.
But all is not lost there, Peepers, 'cause you know what?
Well let me tell you what's what.
Canada Day is a day for CELEBRATIN', for sure. Canada's one hundred and fifty-first birthday is a day for celebratin' like... LIKE A HUNDRED AND FIFTY-ONE TIMES!
And do you know what one has when one is celebratin'?
Cake, you say?
Huh. Right. Unless it's a tuna fish cake with nippy cream cheese frostin', I'm not interested. Cake is not what I was thinkin' about there, Peepers. No sirree.
I was thinkin' more along the lines of...
MOST CERTAINLY NOT. I, Seville the Cat, am not a fan of fireworks of any kind. Fireworks are scary as all get out. We cats have very sensitive ears, you see, and...
Picnics and BBQs? And neighbourhood family gatherings?
What the mouses do you think I am, Peepers? A DOG?
No Peepers, for celebratin', we have...
Yup, when celebratin', we have catnip, for sure. That's right. Canada is havin`a birthday, and there's no better way for a kitty to celebrate Canada's one hundred and fifty-first birthday than for a kitty to get out the catnip, and GET HIMSELF NIPPED.
No, Peepers. No. No, you may not have any of my nip. Go drink your lemonade. Or whatever that stupid stuff is.
HAPPY CANADA DAY EVERYBODY!
