Pikachu! USE LIGHTNING BOLT!



Piplup! USE BUBBLEBEAM!



Chimchar! USE FIBERPOOP!*

I never understood the whole pokemon deal, so I need to ask for clarification. Or rather, at least, verification.

Did the characters populating the pokemon canon actually include a monkey who lights his farts and a yellow bunny called phonetically "Peek At'Chu"?

'Cause thats just eleven ways from weird even to me...

I cheated with the Chimchar portrait: really his lil' tail's on fire, not his ass. But you can bet that using FIBERPOOP too often has its disadvantages.

I assumed Chimchar was some sort of less-deranged frat brother.

Will FIBERPOOP become a label?

Sorry, I am completely wrong on this. The fire is his tail, so yes his ass is CONSTANTLY BURNING.

I'm not very good with labels, so I think I may erase them.

My earliest memories of my own grandmother are of helping her with the needle for her insulin shot, but NO LASTING INFLUENCE.

Currently singing "Chimchar, rimchar" to the tune of the Oompha Loompha song -- fortunately no-one else is home except the cats.

SC.
We are getting piteous cries for mercy via thought waves from the cats. Also a live tuna, it seems that you do not feed them nicely enough.

Smut Clyde said...

If we feed the cats too well, they bring in the wetas they catch instead of eating them, and conceal them in interesting places such as swimming bags, or on one memorable occasion, a visitor's boot.

I know little of this 'pikachu' of whom you speak. Judging from the pose, he is an operatic tenor.

I feel the same way about my serfs.

Another Kiwi's monkey butler has evidently been drinking tequila again.

ADOLF BUTLER.

Dolph Lundgren in the kitchen:

I MUST BAKE YOU.

Another Kiwi said...

With only two degrees we are back to Kevin Baking

Smut Clyde said...

Two degrees? That is not baking as I know it.

I MUST BAKE YOU.

The Ānāpānasati Sutta (Pāli: "Breath-Mindfulness Discourse;" Sanskrit: Ānāpānasmṛti Sutra) is a discourse (sutta) that details the Buddha's instruction on using the breath (anapana) as a focus for mindfulness (sati) meditation. The discourse lists sixteen objects on which one may meditate.

Number 14. Piplup.

How is it that kids can memorize every pokemon in existance but not remember to take a bath two minutes after you tell them to?
