#38 – Million Dollar Cat

Photo taken: September 27, 2013

Five years ago when I was still doing a weekly series called Flashback Friday on this blog, I did a post on primetime television’s biggest sensation at the turn of the millennium, the game show Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.  Having been a former on air finalist on the show, I decided to lead off that post with a picture of the fake $1,000,000 check souvenir I got from that experience… and like many other things I wanted to show off, I decided to slap it in front of Ody…ruining one of his naps, to get a photo of it.  I’ve used and reused this photo so many times over the last five years… always with a witty “if Ody could talk” caption.  It’s his expression that turns this from just another crappy modeling shot into a really cool photo.  The cat’s smug, entitled look coupled with the million dollar check work perfectly well together.  He wants to… no, DEMANDS to be spoiled with these riches.  Sorry Ody, in almost 18 years, I still haven’t found a bank that’s actually gullible enough to cash it yet…

    so funny. that’s so cool you were on the show –

  2. Ody is disgusted with you for not winning in the way only a superior being can be.

  3. Well it’s still a cool souvenir of “what might have been”…………!


    • It actually never could have been since I was on during the run where they had a bonus jackpot if you won the million… so I coulda won $1,860,000. Obviously, I didn’t or I’d jave already bought Ding Dong School and hired a new cook…

    With that haughty expression he does look every inch the millionaire cat.

  6. Trisha says:

    His expression is so cat! I don’t know of any other creature that can convey so much contempt, disgust and a belief in their superiority with just an expression and you captured it so perfectly!

  7. Wait…you didn’t cash the check?? 💵

  8. Keep trying. Maybe you can get a Nigerian millionaire to take it and exchange it for you.
