DAILY MONSTER 37
Good morning. And Merry Christmas, if you’re so inclined! I hope you’ll have a beautiful, toasty day in good company. Many thanks again to all of you for checking in over the holidays.
Crimson, a new contributor, leads us off with a great little story about the Arctic Shadow Imp, who likes to inflict bruises by tricking people to bump into things. I actually had several run-ins with him just today and I have the marks to prove it. Good call, Crimson, and Thank You for posting. I look forward to more of your stories!
Schlockading has a theory: Monster 36 is actually the Grinch—after a nasty run-in with an active volcano. Eep! Which means that he would have made my favorite noise in all of toon-dom: The noise a character (or object) makes when it burns to a cinder in an instant. It’s a breathy P’uh sound that transitions seamlessly into an open mouth wheeze. I tried finding the sound for you online, but came up empty. (What terms do you really search for?)
Sam B. is back with another lovely haiku. Merry Christmas, Sam / Thank you for your daily posts / The Monsters love you. (And 344 loves you, too.)
Terry puts it very simply: Santa has been burning the Yule log at both ends. May he get a chance to rest after today. I’m sure he’s already got his first class ticket to St. Barts.
Thank you all for coming to visit. I’ve got another holiday monster for you today, and he seems an altogether nicer guy than yesterday’s creature. He even has festive eyes! I think he’s an envoy from the Monster World, wishing you a Happy Holiday and a stocking full of excellent goodies! As do I. Jingle, jingle! 344 LOVES YOU
