DAILY MONSTER 43 (and 44)
Good morning! And happy New Year's Eve, everybody! It's the last day of the year! Finally! Out with the old, in with the new. In honor of the occasion (and due to a counting error on my part) you get not one but TWO daily monsters today! We're shutting down 2006 in style!
Monster 42 brought out fun new stories from fun new contributors: Kyle J. Britt impresses with the saga of Planet Mervis and its special deity-in-charge, the all powerful Brach, who truly makes the world go 'round. Very nice work, Kyle. I hope we'll get to see more stories from you in 2007.
Aspid Istra sees in 42 either a combustible piglet or an upside down meat buoy with an automatically extending antenna. You're weird, Aspid. I like that about you!
Mogabog is back and identifies 42 as Fredrick Mornin' Monsta---the son of Mista Mornin' Monsta (Monster 33)---just one of those loud, annoying kids that never stops asking questions at inopportune moments. (Now where did I put my yo-yo?) Thank you for connecting the dots, Mogabog.
New contributor Brandon thinks that 42 is an elephant on stilts---on a bad hair day. Valid theory, Brandon. What brought on the bad hair day, do you think? Or the need for stilts? Either way, I'm excited to see new stories from you soon!
Victoria introduces us to Sigmund Koppel and his entirely lovely lineage of Monsters. They seem like the kind of people I'd love to hang out with. Just 'cause you're a monster doesn't mean you can't be a Mensch, too.
Last, but never least, Sam B. gives the parents' point of view on a small boy who didn't find his place in the world until he found his yo-yo. Those are nice parents, Sam. And it's a nice story to end with. Thank you.
Today's two monsters combine the very simple with the needlessly complex. Do you think there is a relationship between the two? Is one the larval stage of the other? How big is one compared to the other? Is one visiting the other in the zoo? Or on the job? Which one's afraid of the other? Are they even from the same planet? Is it the end of their year, too? I'm excited to find out the facts from you! Until then, have a great New Year's Eve. Have a brilliant night! Have some champagne! Be safe! 344 LOVES YOU
