Shoo Fly, Don't Bother Me!/Improving the Aussie Cork Hat

G'day Mates, My mum just returned to Jerusalem from her week in Cyprus and is tired from partying with all her friends. However, we were distressed to read that my cultured pal, Asta Urbanista in New York (New York City?) has had some trouble with flies, and one of them was so gigantic that she was pewtrified with fear and had to call for help! Crikey! Mates, we have lots of flies down here, and to help keep 'em away we wear these cork hats. So, I got my pal Asta urbanista to try with of these beauties. Don't you all think she looks Faire Dinkum? And, cuter than the funny man. The dangling corks scawe the flys away, but the only problem is that the corks are more annoying than the flies, but at least they aren't scawy! My new cairn pal Scruffy had a weally good suggestion for impwoving the cork hats. He thinks we should have treats and bones dangle fwom the hat instead of the corks. Snicker's Ma suggested dangling vermin would be fun for us doggies. And, Fee suggested having dangly treats on the anti-itch cones. I think that all of these ideas could be a big impwovement!

Asta said...

Asta, you are the bestest fwiend ever to think of how to help me with the fly pwoblem. I asked Mommi to make me one of those hats, but, she's busy rolling around the floor laughing.
I'm sure I'd look better than that funny man.
I'll post my weekend adventures later today,unless Mommi has too many martinis at her dinner pawty tonight heheheh

Well, you know, if anyone could make that silly hat look fashionable, it would be the lovely Asta Up Over! :-)

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
That is a really good sugestion for Asta. I mean, if it helps to frighten away the flies.
Your are a good friend.
Have a good night

Scruffy said...

You know instead of using corks maybe you can hang bits of bone and treats. That way it will scare off the flies and also its a great deal less irritating. It also serves to feed us while chasing flies.

Hammer said...

Hey Asta

What a neat idea. The corks wouldn't stay too long on the hat if I wore it though.

Love from Hammer

Hahaha, my hooman has that hat too but she got hers from Australia when they went there for a holiday. (She was drunk that time after drinking a few bottles of beer at the airport, hehehe...) and she wore that when she boarded the plane. She looked so ridiculous in it. Yes, I agree. The corks are really annoying coz thy're like hitting all over the face.

Hiya Asta!
I'm thinking that I'd really like a hat with dangling treats! I just wonder how long the hat/treats would last.....but good idea!

Ronin_The_Pug said...

Hahahah! Good idea about that hat!

Buster the Wired Fox Terror said...

Wow, and I thought the hats Mommy made ME wear were stupid!

Flies make excellent snacks and are a good source of protein.

Rudy said...

Oh we won't even keep a hat on our heads over here.. I just hate them. Ruins my lovely hairdo, don't you know! (heh heh)
Besides we like to snap at flies, unless they're huge and maybe we'll try that hat after all! yike.


Amber-Mae said...

Hey, that's a FANTASTIC idea!!!!!! Why didn't I think of that in the first place? That way we will keep ourselves occupied the whole day but I'll guarantee that we will not be able to get any of the hanging treats or bones but instead, crash into the sliding door or wall. LOL!
