US embassy in Australia apologizes for sending out email with photo of cat dressed like Cookie Monster
The U.S. embassy in Australia apologized on Monday after it accidentally sent out a photo of a pajama-clad cat dressed like the Cookie Monster.
The embassy in Canberra sent out an email invitation titled meeting to an unknown number of recipients, the BBC reported.
Attached to the email was a photo of a cat wearing blue pajamas to look like Sesame Street character Cookie Monster.
The text next to the photo read cat pyjama-jam.
U.S. mission to Australia spokesman Gavin Sundwall told the Australian Associated Press that the email was a training error made by new staff testing out the newsletter platform.
"Sorry to disappoint those of you who were hoping to attend this 'cat pyjama-jam' party, but such an event falls well outside our area of expertise," Sundwall said.
The U.S. Embassy in New Zealand as well its Ambassador Scott Brown joked about the cat photo on Twitter Sunday.
Err...whats so shocking? Does this have some PC meaning that I missed?
It was just a silly mistake and actually kinda cute.
Looks like a cute cat.
“The chair is against the wall.” “The chair is against the wall.”
“Where’s the Milk?
the cat is a cutie pie what’s the problem?
I think the author at The Hill is just being an ass.
This should take the pressure off of the Saudis.
They’re just apologizing that there is no party after all.
What kind of training are they giving these people?
Litter Box Training!
That’s the cutest thing I’ve seen all month.
Who had a problem with this?
I know some religions consider dogs filthy, but are their cultures in Australia that hate (or fear) cats?
Their loss, then. Lighten up.
Notice how it’s always ‘The Intern’ who gets blamed when something dumb happens.
I rescued a grey tiger kitten two years ago. Ear tips and tail tip with frost bite fell off. Second day in the house it killed 2 mice. It comes and goes as she pleases. Named her Maggie after Maggie Thatcher. Tough ladies that take no shitz.
Hilarious! I am glad to see SOMEONE has a sense of humor in one of our Embassies!
Maggie will be your friend for life.
But on her terms, of course.
That's the Scott Brown who was Senator from MA. Did not know he was now ambassador to NZ.
