Two Cats and a Big Bass Drum

Halloween greeting cards have been around for a long time, although it's not a holiday meant for sentiment. Not that it matters; people have always loved sharing funny pictures, even when those pictures had to be sent through the postal service. And funny cat pictures are universal.

Let's take a closer look at this odd piece of art. We have a cat playing a bass drum. The drum does not look happy about it. Another cat is carrying the drum, but he's got a bandage around his face. Did the other cat put his eye out with a drumstick? And their audience is made of mice! Who came up with this? The poem says Fee, fo, fi, fum. Am I remembering it wrong, or did the line from Jack and the Beanstalk actually say Fee FI, FO, fum?

This vintage Halloween greeting card is one of 13, all featuring black cats, that you'll find at Buzzfeed.
