The Owl & The Pussycat

 Jerry Coyne brought back some good childhood memories for me today with this clip of an owl and a...well...pussycat playing together:



My mom used to sing The Owl & The Pussycat to me when I was a little boy. I sing it with my kids pretty regularly now too. It's an important part of Troxell culture.

No doubt this story--and my mother's habit of always reading me a bed-time story--were big contributors to my enormous appetite for books and stories.

Anyway, my relationship to the book Coyne referenced in the title of his post is what triggered me to post this video, which is cool even if you've never heard of Norman Lear.
