Attempt #1:
sprocket 1-16-2012 12-41-32 PM

Chun gives him a “D” for effort. Advice for next time:
– Have a smaller ear so your beret fits better
– Make sure your whiskers don’t get caught in the elastic band
– Incline your chin slightly to display more beret

Attempt #2:
sprock 1-16-2012 12-44-30 PM

Chun’s assessment:
– Shows improvement
– Next time, look less blobular

Attempt #3:
sprock 1-16-2012 12-32-41 PM

Chun’s assessment:
chun 1-16-2012 12-52-21 PM
At which point, Chun discontinued the lessons.

    In photo #1, Chun has also perfected the Princess Di Eyes, where you look through the tops of your eyes.

    The last photo made me burst out laughing. I think Sprocket would rather wear his cape and be a bouncy superhero. He’s not the introspective beret-wearing type.

    Attempt three made me laugh! It is funny that the beret is covering both his ears!

  3. lahgitana says:

    hahahhahaha! poor flat-head Sprocket!

    Re: Attempt #2 – Be sure your toys are out of camera range.
    That dark red crinkle ball at your feet is too distracting.

  5. Redscylla says:

    LOL!!! Chun is not impressed. But OMG, he is totally in Ze Frawnsh Ray-zee-stawnce.

  6. lauowolf says:

    Last photo indicates that Professor Chun does not allow playing around with Serious Stuff like the proper wearing of berets.
    It’s back to basics for Sprocket.

  7. lauowolf says:

    By the way.
    Just look at Chun’s fuzzy chest here.
    I want to comb it gently, to encourage am more crisp line to the crest where the neck coat going down meets the tummy coat coming up.
    He’s a bit too much the rumpled professor here, and sorta looks as if he slept in his suit.

  8. Wazeau says:

    OMG such a fantastic post! Chun definately has his work cut out for him.

  9. Laurie says:

    I just remembered what Attempt #3 reminded me of. The last time I saw a beret being worn that badly, it was on Harrison Ford pretending (badly) to be a Scot with a tam o’shanter in the second Indiana Jones movie. It looked about as good on him, too.

  10. Oldcat says:

    Sprocket is wearing the heaviest beret in the world. It is crushing him downward.

  11. Oh my. Chun’s assessment is correct – Sprocket does have a ways to go… In attempts 2 & 3 he looks like he’s about to panic and bolt to try to get away from the evil red beret that must be filled with lead.

    I’m excited to see that Sprocket’s ears are so big – he’s going to be a giant!!!

    I just went back up for another look. That final attempt makes me giggle. 🙂

  12. Dianda says:

    Attempt 3 is really funny! Especially the expression on his face, haha.

  13. Also lol’d! SO funny! 😀

  14. Redscylla says:

    Also: LOL @ “feline haberdashery.”

  15. leendadll says:

    Attempt #3 and the follow up photo have me cracking up at my office cube!

  16. robpixaday says:

    Hhaaaaa!!! they’re both brilliant. Everything worthwhile takes a little time, a little effort…or magic.

  17. robpixaday says:

    And their expressions are making me giggle.

  18. Attempt 3 is just so wrong but I am extremely impressed by your cats wearing their berets 😀

    Opening your post, I was amazed by the likeness of Chun to my Bertha:

    He looks a little heavier than Bertha, and she has small white mittens, but they both have the same nose and arresting eyes.
