Wrigley and Chumley just performed a musical piece they wrote together, complete with costumes and jazz hands paws. I am still in awe of what I've just witnessed. They both informed me they'd like to pursue a musical theatre career on Broadway. Somehow, I think Bev is behind this.

His name was Chumley
He was a show girl
With pink ribbons on his head he would pee atop the bed
He would merengue and do the cha-cha
And though he tried to be a star, he didn't make it very far 
Across a crowded floor, he peed from 8 to 4
He was old and he was grumpy
and his bladder was poor!

At the Pup-a! Pup! Pup-a-cabana
The hottest spot north of Havana
At the Pup-a! Pup! Pup-a-cabana
Music and Passion are always in fashion
At the Pup-a.....they hissed and barked...

Then there was Wrigley, he wore a boa
He was chompin' on a bone when he saw Chum dancin' alone
And when he finished, he called him over
But Wrigley went too far, and threw Chum across the bar
And then the punches flew, and chairs were smashed in two
There was biting and fighting 
But who bit who????

At the Pup-a! Pup! Pup-a-cabana
The hottest spot north of Havana
At the Pup-a! Pup! Pup-a-cabana
Music and Passion are always in fashion
At the Pup-a...Then someone pooped...

Your creativity leaves me speechless sometimes. Now is one of those times.
Hugs to you and the Broadway-babes (hey, wait a minute--is this a scam, so that Mark will relent and send you a Snuggie? I know you already have two)... =)

Bev does moonlight as a dance instructor, but her specialty is a the hustle. Also, she and Elvis were were totally wasted today, dressed as a leprechauns, and doing green beer slides through the kitchen. She's NOT behind this.

Laura, since I'm such a fan to superstars Wrigs and Chums, I decided to dedicate my newest post to them, hoping you get me an authograph from the guys.


Oh, I just heard in the radio that the new sensation song "Pup-a-cabana" is a hit!

Way to go, guys!

I totally sat there and sang the pup-a-cabana song... Good times.

OHMYGOODNESS..... I love you to pieces. You are really just hysterical.

I'm going to put a link to this on my blog.

This deserves an Emmy. Or a Bloggy. Or something. :)

Chumley and Wrigley bow their heads and thank you for visiting their 2 animal show. They are wiped out today, had one too many encores last night. And Chum decided he was still young enough to do a keg stand. BIG mistake.

So entertaining. Finally, I feel like I got my money's worth in seeing a musical!!!!
Thanks Chums and Wrigs.

Laura, here's the link that will tell who Bip-Bip is. He usually goes by the name of Road Runner:

Chum has just informed me of his stage name: Dame Chumley. He's now acting like a total Diva, "Bring me water, Bring me treats, Feed me now, Clean my dumps, Don't look me in the eye..."

Actually, nothing's changed.

HappyWifeHappyLife said...

I'm visualizing Chums shouting: "Spritzer Girl! Spritzer Girl!" (like in that Orbit commercial....)

Hilarious. What a little feline diva... ;)

Don't laugh, ok ? I've been to the Barry M show in Vegas ... please don't hold it against me. Thank God I did or I would not know the tune to the Copa song. xoxo.
