Zombie Rhymes: Hey Daddle Daddle

Hey Daddle Daddle
by Jim C. Hines

Hey daddle daddle, the cat went to battle
the werecow beneath the moon.
The zombie dog drooled to see such flesh,
and ate the cat’s brain with a spoon.

Mirrored from Jim C. Hines.

There's still time, but we have to act now! Forget health care, Washington. Where's our Anti-Zombie Dog Act of 2010???

So you're saying this one *shouldn't* be illustrated when I do my collection? ;-)

Nah, then they'd be really high maintenance. And probably conceited. "Ha ha, look at our puppy thumbs!" Insufferable.


(Stunningly appropriate icon, by the way. Skeptical AND terrifying.)

mmmmm Cat brains on a slightly chilled silver spoon. Hello? Is that you Clarice?

Why did I just channel a non-existent scene from the silence of the lambs as acted by cats and dogs?

These are so funny... they should do a collection of them for charity or something. Make a small book and proceeds go for Children's education or your favorite charity. :)

Thanks! This was #6. I think I'd need at least a few more before I can start thinking about a chapbook.

Your little ditty reminded me of the best lines in the Kevin Costner Robin Hood flick:

"I will cut your heart out with a spoon!"

"Why a spoon, cousin?"

"It's dull, you twit; it'll hurt more!"

Thanks for making me laugh on a miserable Friday, one that's more akin to pounding my forehead with a hammer than anything else.

I quoted the spoon lines for years :-)

Hope Saturday was better than Friday!

Well, it was better than Friday until I watched the Bengals game.

::mumbles something incoherent about needing a new kicker::

I intend to exact revenge during gaming night tonight!
