I went to a parish council meeting the other day. It was hosted by a lovely woman in her lovely home. As we walked in, she cautioned us not to let her cat out of the house... "He's a Bengal. He's bred from leopards and it takes 4 generations to domesticate them" she said, proudly. We all oohed and aahed over the beautiful rare cat (who'd been thoroughly domesticated). As each new council member arrived, she delivered the spiel anew.
Then our pastor walked in. His first remark: "That's the ugliest cat I've ever seen." (I'm still laughing).
