Mistaken Identity

Photo by: Ted Strutz

Morton, the compulsive hoarder, found the toilet in the junkyard. With a sharp eye, he surmised it was perfectly serviceable with just a few minor fixes. First thing, of course, he needed to get rid of those flowers growing inside of it.

The flowers looked delicate, but as he began pulling on them they proved astonishingly stout.

Meanwhile, the alien advance scout, Przzt paused in her hyperspace call to headquarters.

“I’m sorry Commander. I need to deal with one of the humans.”

“Are you under attack?” asked the Commander.

“Not exactly,” said Przzt. “This human is pulling on my hair!”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.

      Nice! Just call me the Smile Doctor. I like sharing them out. Przzt didn’t hurt him. A foul-smelling squirt of fluid chased him away most effectively. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks much! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Poor Morton, he’s going to be in for a bit of a shock I think. Let’s hope it’s not going to be a case of “hair today and gone tomorrow.” ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ahaha! Things are about to get hairy for Morton *ahem* Przzt really doesn’t like having her hair pulled. Then again, she may ultimately cure him of his hoarding. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks kindly, Lyn! ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Hilarious, Eric. Of course an alien could look like a toilet. Why not? This has got to be my favorite of these stories. Well done indeed. XD — Suzanne
