Woo is Me

I guess you must be wondering why I haven't made the call for everyone's "Uncle Jack Armageddon/Celebrity Death Ghoul Pool" guesses... sigh.

For reasons yet to be explained to us, Uncle Jack will not be visiting us this year.

I know.

Seriously, I know.

I'll wait until you're done howling with abject sadness.

Uncle Jack has visited us every year since I was a wee little fluffy puppy, and frankly I have no idea what we're going to do with ourselves this year.  Oh sure, the humans are still taking the time off and all, but still, there won't be any of this:

No waiting for Uncle Jack to wake up (or for the door to mysteriously open that allows us to jump and stomp on Uncle Jack)
And yes... no Celebrity Ghoul Pool! 

For those of you who aren't a regular reader (shame on you) every time Uncle Jack visits, a famous celebrity dies.  I'm still not sure my friends in Australia (Huffle, Opy) have ever forgiven him for killing off Steve Irwin.

Uncle Jack also brings along some sort of horrific natural catastrophe (Katrina is one fine example), and something in the human house usually breaks (attic fan, telephones).

I'm not sure if the earth has been notified that Uncle Jack won't be visiting (there's two hurricanes approaching the East Coast)... hmmm.  Perhaps we should hold the ghoul pool and the natural catastrophe pool, and the what will break at the human's house pool.  Maybe all these years it really wasn't Uncle Jack... maybe the HUMANS are the cause!

Regardless, we'll miss you Uncle Jack.  Wish you could visit this year, but we understand.  We'll just save up the claw for next year.


P.S.  We haven't told Spineless Bionic hip/knee puppy Sam that Uncle Jack isn't visiting.  We're seeing how long he stares out the window.  For all we know, he's staring at a bug.

Blast, now what are you going to do for entertainment?

No Uncle Jack this year? But that's so unfair? On the other hand, here is your opportunity to find out how far his power to break things and cause catastrophes reaches.

Wow. Maybe you could have iChats with him or something.
Play bows,

Sorry you don't get an Uncle Jack this year....

Huffle Mawson said...

But... WHY?

The Thundering Herd said...

We are wondering if this is like TV and Uncle Jack demanded a raise for his annual guest appearance and his character mysteriously disappears. Ooooh - maybe this will be Bewitched and a NEW Uncle Jack will suddenly appear.

Has Unka Jack warned the folks wherever he is going to be this year of their impending doom?

Holly and Khady said...

Well, that is going to be a pretty boring time then. You'll have to think of ways to really annoy your humans since they will be home with you anyway.

Bummer. I was hoping for a repeat of last year(sorry swayze). I was going to guess Dick Cheney, but we all know he's been dead for years now.

Good luck with pouncing on any other human you can find.

It's just not right that Uncle Jack is going to deny us this annual event. Can woo get a "guest" Uncle Jack to come stand in for him? that might work. Surely the catastrophe won't be as big, but.....
