It seems some of us are Mudcatters and some are Mudcateers (or maybe just typing impaired). I hope we're Mudcatters because whenever I read "Mudcateers" I conjure up an image of Annette Funicello wearing catfish whiskers instead of mouse ears. Its not a pretty sight.

Just to let you know how old I am, I've never associated "Mudcateers" with Annette or mice. For me, it conjures images of dashing young men with capes and flashing swords and the beautiful women they loved (and who loved them in return). Perhaps they live again in Reg, Reg, and Reg! Flashers, Catspaw?

Gosh, you ARE old, Sandy...
I guess I have to admit that I am of the Mudcateer faction (with double "e" but I can't decide whether single or double "t"), and I use it to relate to the Mickey Mouse Club of my childhood (and my prepubescent dreams of Annette, before I fell for Julie Andrews). I like "Mudcateer" because it sounds kind of silly, and reminds us that we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously. On the other hand, I have to say that Mudcateer sounds a bit contrived, and falls off the tongue somewhat less than trippingly.
"Mudcatter" seems more natural, and it's easier to say, and it appears to be used by the majority. But I still like "Mudcateer," but I'm about ready to give up and join the majority.

I am not that old, didn't really like the Mouse club that much, but did love my Illustrated Comic of the The Three Musketeers, so I'm with "SandyGramps".

Recently, a new member mentioned in the chatroom that he wanted to refer to us all as "Mudders", but didn't want to offend. I told him I didn't think it would offend, but then, those of us who wanted to, could call ourselves "MudderPhoakers", which I rather like, as did he! One does have to be careful at how quickly they try to say it, though. It came out wrong at the "family" restaurant yesterday!

I think for short, "Mudders" is as good as any and as a "mommy" I kinda like it.

I don't personally care....I'm here to talk about ANNETTE! Whoa buddy, the kid was in love!!!! And as it turns out, she's a classy and courageous person as well. Yeah, it was all kinda' hoaky but.............

For a time I was totally enamored of Hayley Mills but Annette eventually won me back over. Good thing too...Y'all checked out each as adults? Not to put too fine a point on it 'cause I gotta' sneak up on a mirror myself, but Ol' Hayley got a "Blower" on her don't she?

RE: MUDCATTERS vs. MUDCATEERS
I was curious where everybody would fall on this and there have been some other goodies as well. I just have an overwhelming joy that Max didn't pick some other dumb fish...like Crappie. Do I need to say more? The jokes are way too easy.

I *really* don't like picturing myself w/ mouse ears! Mudcatter is just *so* much more sophisticated. I can't believe we're really talking about this; maybe we *should* get real lives? :)

Please, please, "mudcatoids", don't start talking about SEX! I already feel guilty enough for putting the word "politics" in a thread, and thinking about Annette is causing my aging memory thread to start "refreshing". Next thing you know I'll be remembering that 1959 promo picture of Peggy Seeger and..no, no, think pure thoughts.

I know, I'll think of the Three Musketeers instead. Now let me see, weren't their names "Asshole, Porthole, Armistice, and Dartboard?

I promise never to use profanity again on the Mudcat. I'm sorry.

I must then assume that a Mudcat engages in "Mudcattery", a more refined form of "Mudslinging" and this is done in "The Mudcatorium", some hidden alcove in Mudcats home where the afore mentioned "Mudcattery" may take place. "Mudcattery" being the spreading of "Mudcacious" gossip and nittpickery in a "Mudcatorial" manner.

Do I understand this clearly?

D'Cats-

I'm still going with "mudcats" for a label, and "mudcatting" for what we do.

I see us as a collection of creative and intelligent individuals. As such, we consume our respective realities, and produce something different, presumably better. Some of us create various forms of music, and some of us create in other ways in our lives--in our professions, in our relationships, whatever.

Mudcats are bottom-feeding scavenging fish that consume their respective realities, producing a flesh that is succulent and tasty.

"give me a fish, I eat for a day; teach me to fish and I never go hungry"

I'm afraid this little philosphical ramble doesn't clearly express what I'm feeling and thinking, but the gist is that I think the Mudcat cafe has a particularly appropriate name at a number of levels, and its patrons/habitues can refer to themselves as mudcats confident they are being accurate, humble, metaphorical, honest, and not taking themselves too seriously!

Proud to be a Mudcat!!!!

Hi all,

I don't know whether I was the one who first started using the term "Mudcateer" but I know that when the thought occurred to me I had a funny/comic vision of folky-type Musketeers in cyberspace rather than Mouseketeers, although that thought did occur to me later - equally comic image in its own way.

Anyway when I say "Mudcateers" I am intending to be gently humourous and not seriously proposing it as a label, but then again, we get reminded here at Mudcat, time and again, about the diversity of our community so I tend to think that only one label would never be enough for all of us at any one time.

I like Don Meixner's Mud-cabulary very much. Do you think it should be Mudcataciaous rather than Mudcacious?

He is planning a childrens Mudcat site and it appears to me that for the younger ones at least to be called Mudcateers, might be quite attractive to them?
