I’ve never been a big fan of Hemingway because Hemingway wasn’t a dog person.
Steinbeck was a dog person. Steinbeck was cool.
Hemingway can kiss my little doggie butt.
Mungo Jerry is a British rock group whose greatest success was in the early 1970s, though they have continued throughout the years with an ever-changing line-up, always fronted by Ray Dorset. Their name was inspired by the poem “Mungojerrie and Rumpelteazer”, from T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats. Rumpelteazer and her partner in crime, Mungojerrie, specialize in petty theft and mischief. In Eliot’s depiction of this duo, these cats are depicted knocking over Ming vases and stealing items from their human family. – WIKIPEDIA
Yes, this is the same poem that inspired Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical, Cats.
But the group, Mungo Jerry, preceded the musical by 11 years.
In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry sold 6 million copies worldwide in the first six months of release.
