Thank God the lion was already booked

I slithered in to the office yesterday and found myself waylaid by machinating minions.

"Aha!" they cackled, "just who we wanted to see!"

When the minions want to see you, it's a bad sign. VERY bad.

I slithered over.

"We just need a quick photo," said Minion One.

"It's for a contest on Harley May's blog," said Minion Two.

"You'll only be on fire for a second!" said Minion Three

"And look, I brought a bucket of water, just in case," said Minion Four.

Harley May, I lay the blame for my now-missing eyebrows and four soggy minions entirely on you.

That is truly a work of art. Sorry about the eyebrows, but it was totally worth it.

If it's any comfort, I spent 30 minutes yesterday locked in my dog's kennel for exactly the same reason. It says something about NUMB that we're all so willing to take one for the team, don't you think?

YOU slithered? We know only Barbara Poelle slithers. Nice subtle comparison of yourself to her! (totally on to you)

A flying, flaming shark that terrorizes Manhattan ... now why didn't I think of that? But how to query this? Hmmm .....

Sharks have eyebrows?

Sharks have eyebrows? I need to brush up on my Discovery Channel, apparently.

Sharks have eyebrows?

Apparently not anymore.

Jude said...

Ahh this entry is hard to top.

Harley May said...

Forgive me. I'll go punish myself.

Erinn said...

Does the shark have green flames tattoos AND it's on fire.

Janet, what are you doing as an agent? YOU CAN FLY!!! You could make money by being a Flying Shark Taxi Service and there's no slush or t-rexs to deal with.

@ Brandi

I think they set the Herpet-American assistant on fire, not the Shark. Hazardous thing, being an agency assistant.

Sharks have eyebrows?

I mean...


Sharks can slither into an office?


I mean...

You are a very complicated person.

Redleg said...

Hmm, this picture reminds me of something else.

Holy crap New York City is scary. It's like Jaws and Ghost Rider had a love child.

Awesome!

Aloft above dark Gotham’s haze,
The blazing shark herself did raise
As beacon through sad query’s maze
A guiding voice above the din,
Celestial perch herself did win
Not by wing, but strength of fin.



(Bad poetry, bad pun. Sorry could not resist the combination. OH! Thanks for the book.)

I fought the online photo thing for a long time...but eventually gave in. Wish I'd thought of this first :)

Has no one noticed the Discovery channel has designated August 1 (Sunday) as the beginning of Shark Week?

Evidently they read this blog.
