Party Planning

Lulu: “I suppose you’re all wondering why I called a meeting today …”
Vermin: “HISSS! Where are the nasty cats? Did they finally get fired? I volunteer to take over cat duty and eat their nasty cat food!”

Lulu: “No, nobody is getting fired. This isn’t a business.”
Vermin: “HISSS! Obviously it’s not a business! Businesses make money! Businesses have standards!”
Mouse: “If you would like to propose a list of standards, I’m sure we would all be happy to vote on them.”

Vermin: “HISSS! It’s about time somebody started listening to me! All right, first, we should—”
Mouse: “All opposed to Vermin’s first standard, say nay. NAY!”
Vermin: “HISSS! I didn’t even say what it is yet!”
Spicoli: “Dude, we all know it’s just going to be either about ‘more mealworms’ or ‘no nasty dogs’ or something.”
Mr. Nibbles: “I think we should at least let Vermin propose her standard.”

Vermin: “HISSS! Thank you, Mr. Nibbles! My first standard is that we should sell all the nasty dogs and use the proceeds to buy mealworms!”
Spicoli: “Told you so.”
Mouse: “That’s not even a standard. That’s operations.”
Lulu: “All right, all right, this meeting is getting off track. Now, the reason the cats aren’t here is that the meeting is about them.”
Vermin: “HISSS! Because they’re getting fired!”

Lulu: “They’re not getting fired! Their fifth birthdays are coming up next week so we need to plan a party for them.”
Blue: “A party? Can we get them one of those cakes where there’s a person inside of it?”
Mr. Nibbles: “I think the cats would be frightened if somebody jumped out of a cake right in front of them.”
Blue: “I don’t think it’s likely that the person inside the cake is going to be doing much jumping if the cake has been baked properly.”

Blue: “What?”

Blue: “I’m just saying, nobody wants to eat an undercooked cake, right?”
Mouse: “I would like to propose that Blue not be put in charge of procuring pastries for this or any future parties. All in favor?”
Everyone except Blue and Vermin: “Aye!”
Vermin: “HISSS! Nasty mouse! How come you get to make operational proposals but I don’t?!”

  1. Xena: We’ve heard rumors that cats are sneaky. If that’s true, then they’ll know all about the party well in advance.
    Lucy: You can’t believe all the rumors you hear, Xena. For instance, I’ve heard that schnauzers are, umm, are smart!
    Xena: Proves my point!
