Good one. And easy to understand for a Monday morning. Thanks for the laugh.

Susan--I'm afraid I may be. Some day, I'll tell you the saddest story in the whole world, and the reason I was NEARLY forced to dump the rally monkey.

*chortle*

How could you ever DUMP THE RALLY MONKEY!!! I came to your blog for your wit, charm and insights into publishing but I stayed because of the rally monkey.

How could you moonrat? How could you?

I'm upset all the way from Dorset, England.

LOL...love it!!

Natasha--it was REALLY, REALLY bad!

Are you ready for it?

I was cleaning the kitchen window screen, and jokingly held it up in front of my face and said, "But soft! What light from yonder window breaks? It is the east, and Moonrat is the sun!" and he said, "Ugh, is that more lame poetry that your college boyfriend wrote you? That dude was really, really lame." AND HE WASN'T JOKING.

Sophie Playle said...

Haha! Nice one.

Travis Erwin said...

Love it!

Precie said...

Bhahahahahaha! He wasn't joking???? Wasn't he forced to read that in school?

Chris Eldin said...

LOL! Great cartoon!

We have an outdoor Shakespeare theater here. Nobody wants to go with me...

Very funny!
We have a round mirror someone decorated for my daughter with a mosaic which reads 'to be or not'
forming a circle round the mirror, so you can read it, round and round...

Leigh Russell said...

btw Moonrat, I can't remember if I sent you a copy of Cut Short. Let me know if you'd like one - leighrussell2009@live.co.uk

Ok, that is quite bad.

My first date with my husband consisted of me telling him about an essay I was writing about Jane Austen's 'Emma'. For four hours. I then read him poetry. My own poetry. And yet, he married me. Alas poor fool.

He claims I get more pretentious with age, like a fine, hmmn. Cannot think of a metaphor.

Please don't dump the rally monkey. He needs educating, not eradicating. I volunteer my services for monkey Shakespeare seminars. (I'm sure there is a Hamlet, monkey, writer and typewriter joke to be had here... but it is midnight in the UK and my gin addled brain can think of nothing).

I broke out laughing and almost woke my brothers... This is fabulous! Thank you.

Chris--I'll go to the outdoor Shakespeare theater with you!!!!!


The more I think about this, the more I think maybe it kinda worked in RM's favor...and I assume he has read it since then!
