View Full Version : Not a children's story...

I just got done reading to my daughter before she went to bed and this came to me. Not my style at all but just an image that I wanted to get down.

Picture this: you're, say, 8 years old. Your mom (mother of the year) decides to leave you and your little sister home alone in a storm. So you two are sitting there minding your business when all of a sudden a 6-foot-tall Man-Cat kicks in the door. He's not there to rob you- it's much, much worse. He wants to play a game (a la Jigsaw from Saw 1 thru 17). Fortunately he cleans up before he leaves but not before leaving you and your sister in need of a lifetime of therapy.

It sounds like a nightmare to me but I guess if you rhyme all the words it's a sure-fire classic.

"I know some good games we could play" said the cat.
"I know some new tricks" said the cat in the hat.
"A lot of good tricks- I will show them to you.
Your mother will not mind at all if I do...."

I always thought there was a subtle horror hidden in Dr. Seuss. "The Ten Happy Fingers of Doctor Terwilliger" is a good example. But then, I also think clowns are creepy. :eek:

Looks like the The Cat in the Hat and The Grinch had a child, pictured here.

Thing One and Thing Two also had a baby which they called SomeThing Fishy, also pictured in this scene.

The paternity test is being handled by Maury Povich. :eek::eek::eek::eek::eek:
