Kill, My Minion!

Got home from work today, and found a package waiting for me. Once the kids got to bed, I opened it and found....



THIS fantastic item, courtesy of Karl.

God I love Archie McPhee. They also included assorted cool, random items, including...



... nasty lookin' vintage recipe cards (featuring MEAT) and a Parasite Pals eraser. This one featured a cuddly little Head Louse. This being Friday night, I provided the Shiner Bock....

Seeing as I am really nothing more than an overgrown 7 year, I immediately set about playing. The first victim was clear. Obviously, the mime had to go:



Gee, he looks surprised!

Next up, it was the New Age Lady. Now, I have nothing against New Age types, really, but the Unicorn was clearly enjoying this, and I gotta take care of my little buddy. For her, he used his glow-in-the-dark horn. Seemed appropriate.



Looks like the bodies are piling up. But I saved the best for last. The box says he's a businessman, but to my eyes he's suspiciously fundamentalist lookin'. Pat Robertson-esque, if you will.

Quickly inserting the chrome-plated horn (again, what better choice for this guy? Probably matches the grill on his Volvo...), it was time to dispatch the bad man.

KILL, MY UNICORN FRIEND!!! KILLLLLLL!!!



Boy, this was fun. Once he was done smiting my enemies, he surveyed the battlefield...



... and then headed off to frolic in a leafy glade.

Ain't life grand? Thanks Karl -- you TOTALLY made my week.

Tomorrow morning we're off to North Carolina for a week with Christine's family. I may check in, I may not. Regardless, I hope y'all have a Happy Turkey Day.

Mood: Just dandy
Now Playing: Nip/Tuck

THIS is what happens when you give a unicorn too much Shiner.

Actually it's the same thing that happens when you give Ray too much peyote.

You're more than welcome Gregg. Worth it to see that look of glee!

Oh man, Greggg... I love this entry and the pics! My best laugh of the week.

(And I can't wait to see the pictorial sequel on Ray's site, when Karl sends him that peyote...)

Checking my mailbox...

btw, word verification is "dsuxerr", which has connotations.

Okay Greggg... I been very, very patient and now you need to update! Please??? (I'm beginning to believe the unicorn turned on you and you're lying there dead and decomposing amidst shattered Shiner bottles...)
