Facebook Confusion Intrusion

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you're having a great day today.

The below is how I started my morning. I like to call situations like this "Confusion Intrusions" because the confusion just sneaks right up on you. 

I signed onto Facebook to check out what was happening with my peeps and a friend had posted a picture of turkeys that had found their way on her back porch. That wasn't the confusing part.... it starts to get confusing when the "trout" gets mentioned. Do you see a trout in the picture (If you can't see the picture/text, right-click then select "Zoom-In" as many times as necessary or click on "Fullscreen" in the picture window) at all? Look very closely....

Ummmm, no you don't, because there isn't one in the picture.

After looking through some of my friend's other pictures I realized that her cat was named "Trout".  For someone like me (read: very literal) this was VERY confusing. Any who, I hope you got a laugh out of this like I did. 

Later gators!!


  1. I tried to convince a friend to name her puppy Trout once. It's a pretty fantastic name, in my opinion.

  2. Sounds like a name from Dickens or Twain. Not a first but the wife of the town grave digger, Mrs Trout.

  3. Oh you left brainer's ..... too funny you are...
    my first though it was the name of the cat,,, now being a right brainer don't ask how I there....just pure imagination and some whimsy

    nice chuckle for Monday...
    now I have to go fix my computer and more.


  4. A cute funny. Thanks for the sweet chuckle. Hope your computer is ok now.

  5. Ru: I definitely agree that it is a fantastic name, just had never hear of a cat being called Trout. Plus, in my defense, that is confusing right? lol

    Vince: It seems everyone has heard of Trout as a name for pets and/or am I behind the times or what? ;)

    Joanny: Can I employ you as my translator? It would require you to be with me at all times. ;)

    Kittie: Thanks so much and thanks for stopping by. :)

  6. Maybe the cat's favorite food is trout?

  7. This is way off topic, I guess, but I knew a woman years ago named Mrs. Trout. I remember my wife being mortified when I introduced the lady as Mrs. Carp. What's in a name anyway.

  8. Trout!? Interesting name for a cat! No wonder you were confused.

  9. Your picture doesn't show up on my iPhone but I could imagine the picture. So funny! That literal bit must get you in trouble sometimes!

  10. I actually wasted 30 seconds of my time looking for a fish! I hope you're happy! ;)

  11. Thanks Jules for stopping by and leaving a comment. I really appreciate it! Yes, this was super duper confusing for me. A cat named "Trout"?! What on Earth? :)
