Some Faux Fur is More Faux Than Others:
It’s Faux Fur Friday
(The first Friday in December, according to the National Day Calendar)
I was thinking that we should have a napkin about upcoming December movies...the latest and much anticipate Star Wars saga finale is looming.... And then there is “Cats.” On the way to school in the morning, we squint in the glow of giant screens in the Union Square subway station, playing clips from the Cats trailer.
When I suggested a furry team up of a Star Wars character and a Cats character, our younger son warned me that we would surely lose a lot of followers on Instagram.
That sounded like a challenge to me.
I picked Ian McKellen’s character, Gus, “the theater cat,” because Mr. McKellen has appeared in other movies the kids have seen. And his cat personage was perhaps not quite as disturbing as some of the others.
I always though Chewbacca’s lips were troubling.
But in this context, maybe not so much.
(And, National “Kiss a Wookiee Day” is June 15th)
