Before we get started, I would like to remind you that this is the last day of the WhatIMeant2Say Membership Drive. Our goal was to get around 5.9 million new subscribers. So far, we have 2. I would like to thank jenn at http://insertwitticismshere.wordpress.com and an anonymous subscriber who writes great haikus, but prefers not to be tagged. (See how sensitive I am to everyone’s needs?) Your generosity is greatly appreciated!
Also, thanks to all of my 3 current subscribers, including my sister, Crash. Your loyalty is both admirable and questionable, and somewhat haphazardly appreciated.
In other news, our bulldog, otherwise known as Wonderbutt, has finally achieved his goal of consuming almost the entire planet Earth. I knew it would happen sometime, but was not expecting it quite this soon. The problem is, I can’t quite figure out which portion got saved. If you are reading this, I am assuming you are part of the lucky landmass I rescued. If you are not reading this, then I am very sorry for not being quite as vigilant as I planned.
I am somewhat geographically and majorly map-amatically challenged. But I am pretty certain that our planet has currently more than the 2 continents originally included on Wonderbutt’s Orbee ball.
These would be the post-Pangean continents of Laurasia and Gondwanaland, I am assuming. I can’t really identify them by their shape. But the one below is the one I saved after Wonderbutt focused all of his chewing ability on the ball for 20 minutes straight.
The other continent showed no signs of detaching, so I gave the ball back to Wonderbutt and made a mental note to check on him every five minutes.
About 15 minutes later, the other continent was gone. Due to Wonderbutt’s incontinent chewing.
I won’t go into detail about what happened to that ill-fated section of terra firma…
This particular Orbee ball, which received a 5 out of 5 on its “Chew-o-meter scale” according to the company literature, will, unfortunately, not be the recipient of the P.A.W. (Product Approved by Wonderbutt) award. Although, I have to say that the planet without continents seems to be quite sturdy.
I’m sure there is a message in that somewhere.
