Whatza Hoosegow?

A couple of youkitties, Jeter and Monica, wanted to know whatta "hoosegow" is. Well, if you're goin' to the hoosegow, it means you're goin' to jail. But I wouldn't mind bein' in jail as long as purr-etty Ariel wuz there with me.

Well, I wouldn't want her to go to jail, you know. Just sayin', hehehe. Oh fiddlefardle futz, you know whut I mean....

The reason I know about hoosegows is 'cause onna my favrite bands, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, sings about 'em:

"I'm a low brow but I rock a little know how
No time for the piggies or the hoosegow
Get smart get down with the pow wow
Never been a better time than right now"

...and on and on like that. I dunno what they're talkin' about half the time, but that's okay cuz they're rockin' cool.

So now I'm gonna try and rhyme as good as the Chili Peppers:

I wouldn't wanna go to the hoosegow
'cause I'd be a bored li'l Chairman Mao
But if with me was purr-etty Ariel
I think we'd do purr-etty well.

(my momma sez she's gonna put me in the hoosegow if I don't quit snatchin' foodies off the counters when she's cookin' and I think she ain't lookin', heh, I made another rhymie!)

and as always, my thanks to Jeter, my superduper poetry teecher. hehehe!
