    Felix the cat, the wonderful, wonderful cat.

    One of four songs for which I know all the words, the others being the F-Troop and Beverly Hillbillies opening themes, and Rancid’s Fuck You. Which is why I don’t do karaoke.

    The cat has an incredulous expression. If it were a human, I’d guess it would be saying, “You expected me to read the syllabus?”

    @Michael Reynolds: my go to Song is “What’s new pussycat?”

    It’s a good one because everyone knows about half the words, the other half are obscene, so it’s a learning experience, and you set to do the woah-woah bit.

    Obscene? Silly, yes, but obscene? I’n speaking of the official Tom Jones version. Is there another?

    @CSK: ok, none of the actual words are obscene, but it’s far more explicitly suggestive than most people remember.

    I’m far from alone in reading “Your little pussycat nose” as a clitoris, for instance.
