This happened once upon a time in winter; in one icy winter, maybe almost as cold and snowy as this year’s winter in New England and Canada. George Washington crossed the Delaware River with his army, and the great master Emanuel Leutze depicted it. Here is the true version of the famous painting:
The painter invited Us to pose for this painting because he cared about the people in the boat: “It was so unbearably cold there, they needed a large warm cat beside them to heat themselves!”
Compare it with the commonly known version that is currently on public display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art , and you will see how Our true version is better for the soldiers depicted in it:
But what happened with Our version? You will ask.
Do you know that the painting was the subject of censorship several times, by some too-zealous school administrators who corrected the image of the painting because Washington’s watch fob was painted too close to his crotch? Their impure minds recognized male genitalia in it! These too-zealous administrators, when they saw a large pussy at the masterpiece, immediately also painted it over, We guess you know why. Fortunately, it happened only with reproductions.
When you go to the Met, please go to a guide and ask him to show you a version with a cat. They have a secret room where they keep the true version safe from too-zealous school administrators:
Keep your children apart from too-zealous carers and be happy!
Thus speaks Zarathustra the Cat
