Grammar Cat #99: Monty Python Cat

Can you help this cat? Think about how to improve the English and then click "Show Correct Cat" to see a corrected version. There are some English notes at the bottom; if you have a question that is not answered there, leave a comment!

UR MUTHR = Your mother

WUZ HAMSTR = was a hamster,
You need an article ("a hamster"), and it's also good to have a comma when you join two independent clauses.

AN UR FATHR = and your father

The spelling "smelt" is correct for the past tense of the verb "to smell," and you can also use the alternative form: smelled. The form "smelt" is more common in British English. See this blog post for more about the different between American and British usage of this verb form: Smelled vs. smelt.

OV ELDERBERREEZ! = of elderberries!

The lines are from the film Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
