20 Soft Kitty Parody Shirts
The Big Bang Theory has added so much to pop culture. (I’m of course, talking about the television show, not that actually event, which one might say added EVERYTHING to pop culture.) First off, it made geek culture more main stream than ever. It gave us a new twist on an old game: Rock, Paper, Scissors, Lizard, Spock. It also added a new word to our vocabulary: Bazinga!
But one of the show’s biggest sensations to come out of The Big Bang Theory was the song Soft Kitty. The song that Sheldon’s MeeMaw would sing to him when he was sick. Which he now forces Penny (most of the time) to sing to him when he’s sick or feeling down.
It’s a simple little ditty: “Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur; Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, pur, pur, pur.” It is an actual nursery rhyme (the children of the song writer did try to sue the show for copyright infringement, but couldn’t prove they owned the rights to the song), but long forgotten until the show made it more popular than ever.
The song has almost become a catchphrase on the show, popping up a few times a season. We’ve seen it played on a harp and translated into multiple languages by Amy.
With internet sensations come parodies galore. And there are plenty for Soft Kitty. And you can find them on T-shirts, of course.
First there was the classic, Soft Kitty:
The first I ever recall seeing was the Hard Dalek version:
And then they just kept coming:
Hard Xeno, Cold Xeno
