You Mock Superman?

It is not wise to mock Superman. My super-ears can detect your suppressed giggles even over hundreds of miles. I might freeze you with my super-cooling breath, or fry you with my super-heat vision. Or perhaps I may flatten you beneath the weight of my super-pounce, or fling you across the room with one flick of my super-tail. But no, I am Superman. I use my super-powers only for good. Therefore, I shall merely throw you some super-shade.

It’s Amazing How They Recognize Words

“Hey, Jasper — you want to go for a walk? Maybe to the park? Where you can chase the ducks? Then we can drive to Vegas? And pawn Daddy’s ring? Then do lots of shots? And pass out in an alley? Then wake up in Mexico?”


All Capped Out

Sorry, coach — I’d like to play ball, but I need a seventh-inning stretch.


No, Really, It’s… Lovely

I’ve always wanted one of… whatever these things are. Thank you.

I Mall Tuckered Out!

Every winter solstice, shopping is a hot topic, and my feet feel like hot kohls! The carts jostle like an old navy fleet of some banana republic, pushed by old fossils tickled pink to payless and save a few penneys on staples! I’d like to hide in a foot locker, or maybe Pandora’s box, but I guess I’ll crawl into this gap and sleep like a bebe.

All Along the Watchtower

All along the watchtower, bite marks did appear
But who or what did put them there, we’ll never know, we fear
Outside in the cold distance, a puppeh’s tummy did growl
Suppertime was approaching, and the pup began to howl

Take Me to Mercy General Stuffed Animal Hospital, Driver!

… and step on it! (Oh, I just hope the doctors can repair the bite marks in my beloved Flopsy!)

A Tense Moment

With focused determination, Hector stared down the mysterious stranger, his gaze barely lifting from the round yellow object of his heart’s desire. A minute passed. Then another. And another. The interloper scarcely moved as it jealously guarded its prize, but Hector remained resolute. His moment would come. Oh yes…it would come.
