Default Kater's Birthday Thread

Will somebody please bring me the head
of lettuce in the fridge? This is the thread
to wish to Kater with sticks
(not Kater with bricks) in 2 thousand and 6!

It's not like there's trouble right down in t' pit,
or if you don't answer poor Kit has a fit,
but more than the love of just any alma mater,
is the fondness we feel on this day for sweet Kater.

The moral of this story is,
Kater is a lovely Miss!

I guess this is only funny if you know both Danish and German, but I couldn't help lauging.

'mis' in Danish means kitty
'Kater' means male cat in German

well, the pun made me laugh - although I'm not sure Ghyle wrote this sentence to be an intended pun.


Happy Birthday Kater!


(Nice poem Ghyle. )

I never knew about the mis in Danish although Hans told me about the Kater a few years ago!!


Thanks for the birthday wishes everyone!! (I like the poem Ghyle!! :*)
