Pooses Sing Puccini


Associated Press
New York

Last night the Metropolitan Opera House was packed to the brim with patrons, celebritites and cats, wearing tiaras and top hats for La Boheme. (Unconfirmed sources claim to have seen a few dogs, one in drag and a pair of bunny slippers up in the balcony)

Much to the surprise of the audience the cast was joined by several cats during the final scene. Zevo Hussein Calamari sung the part of Mimi while Nubi Hussein wan Kenobi assumed the part of Rodolfo. Several members of The Pooses for Peace Bite & Run Brigade joined the chorus. (We regret that we cannot name the hundreds of cats due to time constraints and space since they have all added Hussein as their middle name!)

The most shocking part of the finale is when the cats took over the chorus and began to sing the last song from Moulin Rouge after screaming VIVA LA BOHEME!

"No matter what you say.......

The show is ending our way.....

for FREEDOM!

BEAUTY!

TRUTH and

LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE"

After the initial surprise the cats received a standing ovation. Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor joined the cats on stage for an encore.

In other New York news several patrons at the opera reported missing earrings, watches and shoes.

we sang on stage! it was awesome! but, um, we doesn't have enough room in our bag to take back all of the shoes we found. Should we bring them back to the lost and found?

Has anyone seen our stash of stoli?

Since I am such a poor singer, I stood in the back and lip synched. Do you think anyone noticed?
