This Week, on The Guiding Leash

Jessica Van Pooter, who survived a plunge through a plate glass window into a flaming mine shaft onto a cache of explosives and is basically just a brain in a jar clinging to life at this point, confronts her husband Reginald about his overdue library fees…

Furious that he did not inherit his father’s priceless collection of first edition Bazooka Joe comics, the scheming Kirk Banderspackle plots his revenge…

And meanwhile, Taffeta Pennyfeather shocks her twin sister Crinoline by revealing her secret affair with Brock Kittayne.

  2. NOMTOM, your brain should be studied… we can all have one just like it.

  3. what a fertile imagination!! EXCELLENT!

    Coffee table book. Seriously. Sign me up.

  5. Been standing in this line for years now! 🙂

  6. Your crack me up NTMTOM!

  7. phred's mom says:

    . . . what a wonderful world that
    would beeeeeee!

  8. This presents major questions …

    Which came first ? The chickie or Da Kittie ??

  9. Taffeta Pennyfeather wanted to reveal her forbidden love before, but, as she put it, “I was a little chicken…”

  10. Emmberrann says:

    Seconded. Oh, and thirded, too.

  11. “Let me be perfectly clear. I will not allow you to marry this young man!”

  12. Tony James says:

    Um – that’s not Brock Kittayn. That’s his twin brother, Tah’beh – you remember, the one that was presumed dead in the plane crash in the Andes but whose body was never found? The one who swore that he’d get even with his brother Brock “and his little dog, too” for reporting him to the medical school authorities for cheating on his first year exams? He’s clearly “hatching” a nefarious plan to seduce Taffeta and drive a wedge between Brock and his fiancée, Crinoline.

  13. At this point, I think the book will be bigger than a set of encyclopedias.

  14. AWW 😀

  15. whatthelump says:

    Please, Animal Planet, make a soap based on this post and everyone’s brilliant ideas!

  16. And let’s not forget Henny Pennyfeather, the Twins Mother and that mysterious adoption after her cross species snorglin’ (and more!!) with Duke Kittayn many years past. Could it be that Brock/Tah’beh and Taffeta are about to enter the realms of forbidden love? Tune in next week when Crinoline turns to Hugo Hipposnork, long time nemesis of the Kittayn’s…… Dah, Dah, dha, dah!!!!!!!

  17. Infinitized!! (if that’s a word)

    You really should write for the real soaps, NTMTOM. They would be SO much more entertaining.

  18. So who DID inherit the priceless first edition Bazooka Joe comics? And if Brock is having an affair with Taffeta (I assume she is the snorgler), WHY is he looking so fondly at Crinoline? Is he using Taffeta to get to Crinoline?

  19. I’m a little taken by Brock or whatever his name is myself. So cute.

    I have no idea what the inside of NTMTOM’s head looks like, I’m guessing it’s beyond our comprehension.

    Poor Jessica.

  20. ROFL… Oh that was so perfect Tony.
