The day before yesterday, I was reading a post at Catsparella’s about German cat’s tongues and you might remember that my human once made some that I posted about on my bloggie, and it reminded me of something!
With the move, I forgot to share about my human’s silliness. My human is a little bit silly sometimes. I have to agree with the male human that she does try some weird stuff in terms of food. Wonder what I’m talking about? No, I’m not talking snails or crickets, I’m talking green stuff. Like green cake. She claims it’s Matcha tea and that it is both good and healthy. I thought it was nip! It is not!!!
When we lived in New York, she used to shop at H-Mart, a Korean grocery chain, a supermarket rich in Matcha tea things of all sorts.
And my human, the silly silly one, she has to try them. Regardless, too, of the name on top of the, er, food. Please forgive me my furriends but am I the only one here that thinks there is something wrong with that name?!
Human: But Texas, I bought this because it was also written “langue de chat cookies”, or cat’s tongues…
Texas: Human! Does this look like cat’s tongues to you?!?
I did some research on the Internet and found the following. OMC!
To a Japanese processed food company, what is more exotic than English lettering for their packaging? One company, Sanritsu, one-upped the industry by mixing French and English together. Flench and Engrish. Flengrish. But there are dangers of utilizing Flengrish. That’s what I thought when, at my local Japanese market, I happened upon a box of couque d’asses.
Someone literate in both French and English would notice that the box contains cookies of asses. Ass cookies. And the experience is enhanced by the subtitle of “langue de chat cookies and chocolate,” or cat’s tongue cookies and chocolate. I just kept thinking of all the places of a cat’s anatomy that can be reached by his tongue, and from which area a chocolate-colored cookie might appear during an intense self-cleaning session.
She claims the cookies were not bad but with little interest. She thinks the male human and I have not seen her throw the rest of the cookies away after I found the post above.
Silly silly human. I might as well start a Silly Sunday series.
