Woe is Lil' Bud

Posted by Hello

Brenda at the similarly named Planet posted a sad story of a fine young hamster, Little Bud, who is beginning to behave like a truant from the streets of Newark. Perhaps Brenda will retrieve the little feller, and let him look over her shoulder as we try to cheer him up. (Tapping toe… dum de dum dum … tap, tap, tap) Okay!

Maybe you forgot his birthday:

Perhaps he just needs to get out for some fresh air:

Exercise is always good for youngsters:

Or, he may want to take in an act at a nightclub, like Barbara Streisand-Hamster’s:

BUT, if you don’t want him joining up with Abu-Nidal-hamster:

Then, get him a date!

    This has really made me laugh! I needed it soooo bad today, so thanks.

    I am delighted that you liked it! Very welcome! I hope Lil' Bud smiled; but then, how could you tell?

    Whew. Greg, it's about time you started posting public service announcements.

    Hamsters play golf? Maybe that's how we got Go'fers.

    Very good, Stew! -Greg

    Oh Stew! That was a good one. I can hear the drum beat after the punchline.

    There's no way I'm getting him a girlfriend. I found out they breed like rabbits. I just find it unusual that he doesn't have the curiosity about humans that other hamsters I've known have had. OH I bet I know what it is!! He must be a TEENAGE HAMSTER! He's in his adolescent withdrawal phase.

    Humans? Did you notice that SIX count 'em six articles in today's Hasty Rum are about animals? There is a good reason, too: every once in a while, I too get fed up with hoo-mans and I find peace and solitude among blotto birds, deputy dogs, hare-brained hamsters, protected polar bears, trotting turkeys and pill-popping pets. (Whew! Didn't think I could do that!) So, I sympathize with the reticent rodent. (Enough!)

    Me too Greg. Sometimes I think I could really get into hermitism.
