Boy, just when you thought it was safe to go
foiling the evil plot of Leatherface and Scar.
It seemed as though the Maunawili Out and Back would go off without a
hitch. Well, I guess HURT counted their
eggs before they hatched.
the cousin of the faddah’s braddah of Leatherface and Scar, Cruella da Pig, was
on the warpath.
da Pig (Yikes!!!)
Cruella is a grouchy, smelly, and
not-particularly-attractive relative of the devious duo who had plans of her
own for the innocent runners on the Maunawili trail. Word on the streets is that her plot included
something devious with H1N1 (Cruella’s sister’s cousin says that Cruella is
still mad about the name Swine Flu).
Cruella just about lost it when she
saw this sign:
She became infuriated that pigs
have become the scapegoat (or pig, in this case) for a little influenza
virus. She wanted to take out her fury
on anyone and everyone, particularly anybody that messed with her family. So, when Super Pig (aka mild-mannered Don)
told me that he wanted to mediate this dispute, I was worried.
Nonetheless, my faith in Super Pig is strong,
and I gave him my blessing and some antibacterial hand sanitizer before he left
to search out Cruella da Pig. Into the
Super Pig garage he ran, and next thing I knew, he emerged in the Super Pig
mobile, embarking on his mission of peace.
I don’t know the details, nor do I
really want to know, but the outcome of their meeting was nothing less than
miraculous. Now there is love and
harmony in the hills and valleys of Maunawili.
Once again, Super Pig saved the day and the Maunawili Out and Back will
be enjoyed by many. In honor of this
historic treaty, kiss a pig today!
