On This Date in TWISTED-HISTORY.com! in 1960, “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee was published and quickly became a classic and won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1961. Her cat, Mister Tiggly Wuggums, was extremely upset as he believed Ms. Lee had stolen the title to his book, which was a slasher/murder/how-to/cookbook for the stalking/killing/throwing in the air and playing with/cookbook of all things smaller than himself. The other cats in the United States were equally disappointed when they read the book and discovered it was about a young girl and her family in rural Alabama. The dogs of the United States were disinterested in the book since there was no ‘scratch and sniff” sections.

    I’m with Wister Muggums, that book was a crock! It was the worst murder mystery ever I’ver ever read. OK so, first they tell you whose getting murdered right in the title but them they don’t get murdered. I mean there’s a crime and a trial and stuff, or I’m assuming tthere is. I never read the book, it’s too long, but I did watch the movie, well part of the movie. I saw some of it on Youstube and there was a courtroom scene, or maybe that was a different movie. Anyway it doesn’t matter. Nobody still killed any, waitaminute. Now I forgot what book we were talking about. Hang on, I’m going to go back and read you post again. I’ll be right back.
