Lulu: “All right, now that we have a quorum, let’s hear arguments for and against, then take a vote to decide if we want to try to get this economic assistance from Facebook so that we can buy new balloons for the turtle.”
Vermin: “HISSS! ‘Quorum’? Since when do we use fancy Latin words around here?”
Mouse: “Vote? You want us to vote? Has this become a democracy instead of you or the cats just going off and doing something crazy?”
Charlee: “I’ve never gone off and done something crazy. I’m the cautious one.”
Chaplin: “I’m contemplating doing something crazy right this second.”
Spicoli: “Yeah, dude, we can tell from your crazy eyes.”

Chaplin: “Look at me! I’m on television!”
Spicoli: “You’re on the television, dude. Not the same thing.”
Lulu: “Let’s all try to settle down and focus. Now, does anyone have any opinions on why we should try to get money from Facebook?”

Lulu: “Isn’t anybody going to say anything?”
Mysterious Intruder: “Facebook is totally trustworthy and you should definitely give them all your information about everything.”
Chaplin: “Get out of my recessed lighting hiding place, Zuckerberg.”
Mr. Nibbles: “Wow, Facebook really does track you everywhere.”
Spicoli: “Now I see two sets of crazy eyes.”

Overheard Around The Conference Room

Lulu: “I suppose you’re all wondering why I called this meeting.”
Producer Smurf: “I was already here smurfing the Smurfs movie for the smurfteenth time.”
Charlee: “We were batting a ball around and it rolled in here.”
Vermin: “HISS! I’m not here because you called me. I was sleeping in the recessed lights and when you turned them on it heated up my tuchus a little.”
Spicoli: “Oh, so that’s why it smells funny in here?”

Overheard Around The Board Room

Mouse: “So after extensive review and investigation, I have concluded that Lulu is not, in fact, a clone of Trixie.”
Spicoli: “Brilliant work, dude. What was the decisive factor? The way you just look at her and she rolls right over for a belly rub?”
Lulu: “I’ll be a clone of trixie if you want me to. I don’t mind.”
Mr. Nibbles: “You just be yourself, Miss Lulu. That’s what you’re here for.”

We Don’t Need ANTother Hero


Vermin: “HISSS! I suppose you’re all wondering why I called this meeting.”
Mouse: “Actually, I’m wondering how you called this meeting. I have your account blocked from scheduling the conference room.”

Overheard Around The Conference Room

Dennis: “All right, I’d like to call this meeting to order so we can discuss the new additions to the … Umm, would you two please stop cuddling and take your seats?”
Mr. Nibbles: “I think it’s cute how they’re always snuggled up.”
Vermin: “HISSS! Such constant public displays of affection are unbecoming to a cat! And I should know since I am a cat myself!”
Mouse: “You are not a cat!”
Producer Smurf: “That’ll never happen, Dennis! You’d have better luck smurfing Vanity away from his mirror or Greedy away from his pies!”
Spicoli: “Dude, you have access to pies and you haven’t shared? Not cool!”

Mr. Nibbles: “What do you think it wants?”
Dennis: “I don’t know. It never talks or moves. It just stands there motionless.”
Producer Smurf: “I can’t believe you’re all smurfing out over a bird.”
Spicoli: “Yeah, dudes! Stop smurfing out already!”
Vermin: “HISSS! Now let me show you nasty dogs and stupid rodents how opossum camouflage really works.”
Mouse: “Opossum camouflage? So you finally admit you’re not a cat?”
Vermin: “Meow.” Continue reading “Meeting Crashers”
