Book 1: The Tub of Happiness
The Shopping Trip


Brad:You did it again, didn't you? You ate my pet.
Schlock:Sorry, Brad. I thought it was a rat.
Brad:Something about that disturbs me in a visceral way.
Brad:And for your information, it was not a rat. It was a gerbil.
Brad:Gerbils are harmless and playful... Gentle...
Schlock:I'd add 'tender' to the list.
Schlock:Tender, but with just the right amount of crunch. They're succulent, in a small, furry kind of way.
Schlock:...much better than rats.
Narrator:Thanks, Schlock. Now we're all viscerally disturbed.
