What does Ack! Thbbbt! mean?

I named my blog Ack! Thbbbt! after the sounds used by Bill the Cat from Bloom County to express himself.  But what does it mean?  Here's my guess:

Loosely translated = "How appalling!"

Loosely translated = "Who cares?"
(Yes, I see that I've misspelled it.  Thbbbt!)


Most of my own outlook on life can be summed up using the same two words.


If, by chance, you are actually searching for what #tbt means, that stands for "ThrowBack Thursday".  You'll see that on Facebook a lot when people post old photos.

I just came across your site by accident. I was scrolling across another site and finger-twitched as I passed over their "favorite blogs" list. Since serendipity should not be ignored, I read some of your blog. I've enjoyed reading your stories.

It may be that I stayed to read because I thought I recognized the title from Bill The Cat. I wasn't sure, but then I found your explanatory link and followed THAT!

And then I saw your explanation of TBT. The first time I ever saw that, I was very confused. Because, on my cat blog, *I* am TBT (The Big Thing). Not because I am a large human, but because I imagine that is how the 3 cats comprehend me.
