Good morning. Dateline Jacksonville, Florida. After a day’s travel I’m safely ensconced at my hotel, getting ready for my talk in the afternoon. Should be fun. If you’re reading this post and you’re in the audience later, please identify yourself with the secret word.

Thank you so much for all your cool stories about Monster 171. You people are funny! I love it! If you haven’t read yesterday’s story, definitely take a look:


Now, are you ready for Monster 172?

What’s going on with these two? Can they be united? Do they want to be united? Do they realize that they’re an homage to a classic Christoph Niemann cartoon? By this time I’m sure you’ve already figured out their story. I hope you’ll take a minute to write it down for us. Please:


I hope you’ll have an excellent day on your end.
Meet me back here tomorrow for Monster 173.
And in the meantime, please don’t forget: 344 LOVES YOU

    Would you like to see my teeth too? I’ll show you mine. come on! Just a little step for a monster, (but a big step for the creatures world) and we will be united. You have just to take a piece of tape or a drop of glue. Adhesive binding forever! And we will be two in one.

    Raul cannot believe it. After years of hearing the incessant comments from friends and family he vowed he would never believe it. Even his dear sweet wife, Kathy Ireland, would say the same thing but Raul would not believe.
    After their son, Achmed, was born, did he start to see it. He could make out the resemblance in his face, in his features. It is amazing that he looks so much like his father and almost nothing like his mother. Raul say that the comments and snide remarks were true. All of those years and breaths wasted in arguing and denying. The truth was right on the face of his sweet son.
    He did look like a hockey stick.

    Jodi loved her boyfriend. His beautiful grin always there to greet her. It was just to bad she had Teethous Strangous, or she would be able to greet him with a grin as well. Well she could, kinda, because Teethous Strangous makes your teeth grow on your belly (Thats why it sticks out so much) instead of your mouth.
    This made it very hard to keep from falling down.

    These monsters like to draw, they like to play on computers. They are good friends. They play with swords, but never get hurt. They like to play with monser #1. Monster #1 always spends the night at these monsters house. The first monster’s name is Marchoukahs. The second is named Partstook. And padeepadous.

    A litter?!
    A litter?!
    Who needs this many baby quadlehops? 7. That’s right. Yesterday, Penelope gave birth to 7 quadlehops. I mean, yeah, their cute, but jeez louise. So many diapers, feedings, and shoes. That’s 14 shoes! And then school. Who’s going to pay for college? Who’s going to pay for their teeth cleanings?
    That’s it – they are going up for sale. Penelope can keep one for herself, and I’ll choose a cute one, just in case her chose dies. The rest, though, will hopefully be out of our house by the end of the week.
    There’s no way we need so many anyway, right? I guess on the bright side, Penelope is so stretched out that I’m not going to father anymore of these little things.

    Once again Roogle stole his Grandpa Junje’s dentures and if he doesn’t move fast he wont live to tell the tale.

    “I know of your plight. Unfortunately, I can only offer this advice: on the fourth Moon of Light, return to the Pond of Souls and you shall find the answer to your goals.”
    It had been three months since the mystic told Karpov to return to the Pond of Souls and that’s where he found himself this very evening. The clouds were thick, but the wind was strong. Once the moon came into its full light, Karpov gazed deep into the reflective pool. To his surprise, despite the powerful glow coming from the moon, there was nary a reflection for Karpov to see.
    Karpov’s whale shaped head glared for hours over the shimmering surface of the water below him. Finally, the murk gave way to something creeping towards him. It smiled wide, with an opened mouth to bare all those magnificent teeth. Karpov couldn’t help but smile back, for it was him when he was a much younger boy. All his worries and needless concerns seemed to just shed away. A carefree life was to be his once again. They shared laughter and smiles until the moon started to give way to the sun’s mighty reign.
