Absent For A Bit ....

I am away for a little while working on a few or more episodes for The Adventures of My Space Alien Alter Ego story ... will return (to Earth) soon!

Notice: Blogger has screwed up and lost a bunch of photos out of my blog! They are replaced with a gray silhouette of a human head. I will eventually get them replaced with the correct photo, it may take a while to find and fix everything. So some of my stories don't make much sense without their photos, sorry for the inconvenience.



Funniest Headline Ever

From CNN: Obese Pets Are A Growing Problem

Now my lil brain wants to make a hyaku with 'much' 'munch' 'mutt' and 'lunch'.

I tend to write rather dan-ger-ous poetry in the dark AM's.

Obese pets are a
Growing problem tend to be
Eating all they see

My mutt munched muchly
How longingly at his lunches
Now belly bunches

After cleaning all
The food from his bowl complete
Demands dental treat

Every night at nine
There is an insistent "please!"
For a slice of cheese

Beatiful haiku.

Almost brought a tear to my eyes, the sheer magnificence of the topic ;)

This is one of the reasons I grew to hate CNN. Have not seen it now in a couple days and I feel so much happier.

I heard about this, but didn't have your keen insight to recognize the absurdity of the headline. Masterful poesy.

Just don't feed them and you'll have a shrinking problem.
