Green Acres is the place for me!

Mum worked hard the other day and got all the outside all cleaned up after putting up our super cool fence!  And of course we had to take our official pic at the new place! This is me and Gracie on our front porch.

See any resemblance? Yes, Gracie and I look like we belong on Green Acres, or at least are sporting a very American Gothic look, BOL!

If you're older, you may remember the TV show Green Acres. It ran from 1965 to 1970 or so and starred Eva Gabor and Eddie Albert, a married couple from New York who decide to live their dream (well his, anyway) and move to a farm in the country. Their famous pose parodied the classic American Gothic painting by Grant Wood.

American Gothic was painted in 1930 and featured Wood's sister and dentist as the models for the painting. The painting was inspired by a little white house that Wood saw in Eldon, Iowa that featured a Gothic style window in it's apex.

This painting is one of the most parodied artworks within American popular culture. You can see lots of those American Gothic parodies on Google Images and on Pinterest, too funny! Now parodied by me and Gracie! All we need are some bakers gas welding supplies and make a nice pitch fork, BOL!
