The Midweek Chatty Patron stopped by.
“You know what really frightens me?” She asked.
“Cannibal clowns?” I replied.
“No, super lice.”
“Lice from Krypton? I can see how that can be worrisome. Curse earth’s yellow sun!”
“A library in Florida had to close to have them exterminated!”
“If we had Library Monkeys, Super Lice wouldn’t be a problem, they’d be a snack.” Note to self: Write a grant for Library Monkeys.
“Apparently they’ve evolved.” She added.
“Did evolution give them a taste for man-flesh? That be cause for alarm or a SyFy movie.”
“Where did they come from?”
“A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, but I can check.” An actual reference question!
“No, it’s okay. In New York it’s gotten so bad in some apartments they created a ray that irradiates them.”
“Radiation sounds like a bad idea. Should they mutate we’d have to summon Godzilla to fight them.” Or King Kong. He’d probably eat the Super Mutant Lice.
“Always something to worry about! Night!”
