It all really started when a nice hoomin discovered Mr. Munchabunch had hitched a ride home on a new houseplant.

Seeing how much Mr. Munchabunch really, really, really liked the new plant the nice hoomin was happy to let him stay and named him, John.

John liked the new name and decided to hang around for awhile.

John became very attached to the new houseplant.

Tea for Two (Hours)

Dame Lucretia Crump-Pinnet never rushed through her classic high tea, insisting that everything be done at a slow, regal pace. This was evident even in her choice of tea cozy:

The Fuzzy Little Caterpillar*

This cheerful caterpillar* is a blurry sight to see
Presented through the miracle of pin-point photography.
And though her torso’s tentative, she really doesn’t mind,
She’s clear on where she’s headed, fuzzy on what’s left behind.

Yee-up, I Remember the Rains of ’42…

Sheriff Slimetrail comes a-runnin’ down the road, must’a been doin’ a mile an hour easy, tellin’ us to get to high ground. So I crawl on top of the grain silo, and Lucille gets on top of the outhouse, and we just wait it out singing old love songs…

That’s Odd, I Don’t Smell Anything…

(Wow, I must have a cold or something, because I am just not picking up any nectar on this flower at all. Although I am getting a faint hint of deodorant…)

Think Flying Hamsters Are Just a CO “Thing”?

Well maybe this fuzzy flyer here wants to change all that. All he needs is a cute pair of pants!

“Hi Cute Team, I thought I’d seen it all. But then I found this little winged jellybean with bright yellow floof! (I’m seeing kind of a cat face thing. You?) And its name is Squeaking Silk Moth! They actually make little “squeek” sounds if you touch ‘em. Help me decide – cute, weird, or both? Squeek and thanks!” -Kathleen C.

Hey-Yup! Double Time!

Atten-SHUN! Now listen up, private, and listen good! When I say you’re going on a march with full pack, I mean today, not next week! So cut the dawdling and get moving! What are you, a snail or something?

Come With Me if You Want to Salsa

My name is Don Arachno, I’m the king of latin samba,
The ladies see me dancing, and they’re shrieking ¡ay caramba!
Alas, I am but robot, and must seek upon my honor
One special dancing partner by the name of Sarah Connor

Please tell me that thing on the front dispenses tequila, Wendy M.
