Mindless television is better than intelligent conversation any day of the week. You’ve got better things to do than to be forced to think.
But what if…
Drivel: (n. pl.) Any of various small, furry, intelligent life forms
Those drivel would definitely be the kind worth watching.
Ah, but the catch is, they’re mindless!
Intelligently mindless, hopefully.
Was that sarcasm or a compliment?
Perhaps it was a sarcastic compliment. Sometimes it’s hard to tell with Chris.
Ha Ha Ha Ha sorry Chris but this is so hilarious.
It depends on which side of the table you’re sitting.
I was wanting to get under the table and tickle everybody’s feet. Is that okay?
Sure, but you’d better watch out for the somatic kicking reflex that Wombies can have to tickling.
In fairness, we don’t know what conversation was like before panel 1! TV may have been the better alternative! 🙂
So I guess you’ve heard some of our conversations?
Chris should be careful if he is being a sarcastic; he’s out numbered. Besides, who did Chris have to talk to at all before these cute little guys came along?
It does look like they have upgraded his social life.
Chris would be reluctant to admit that, though.
That’s true. I should remind him of that. He only had his cat before his house was invaded by Wombies.
Most of the conversations around our house contain quite a bit of mindless drivel. Especially the parts I contribute.
I suppose it can be difficult to avoid mindless drivel when you’re conversing with the same people all the time. Maybe we should aim for mindful drivel.
OOOOooo… I hope The Real World is on! 🙂
The real real world is everywhere, except on TV.
Very true, sir.
And I’m a little jaded about that show anyway… not being selected as a cast member and all…
We would’ve all voted for you! Or vouched for you. Or done whatever it would have taken to get you selected. Like bribe the producers with chocolate and wine gums.
Maybe on the bright side they’re watching something like the PBS Newshour… I doubt it though. They probably don’t have any wombie news on it.
That’s quite true. All the major media outlets completely ignore Wombie issues and events.
Something tells me the conversation wouldn’t be too intelligent anyway lol
We like to keep that fact secret, however.
I love all the critters but I can see there are two sides here. Too funny.
Have a terrific day. 🙂
If you give them half a chance, the critters will be running the zoo.
Saw a dead Wombat on the side of the road the other day. Just thought I’d let you know & offer my condolences for the loss of your relative.
Crazy human drivers! Go slow, there are wombats afoot!
I hope you checked to see if the dead wombat was female and if there were joeys in the pouch. Often times there are, and the poor little things can suffer a horrible death after their mother is killed.
Oh great, now I will be worried all day. Tony did you check?
I bet his rocket blew up.
As far as I know, I’m the only Wombie with rocket-fueled aspirations.
I tend to dribble when I drivel.
As long as you don’t dribble when you drive, it’s probably okay.
I don’t want to get a DUI. Dribble under the influence.
Doesn’t the poor guy know you can’t compete with the boob tube? 😀
I think Chris knows that now.
I’m guessing Animal Planet?
Animal Planet would probably be too much like a documentary to them. I think they prefer more frivolous drivel.
Are you calling True Blood mindless drivel?
Probably. I’m not sure. I’m betting there probably isn’t much truth in True Blood.
True Blood not real! I can put away the garlic and wooden stakes then…
but I will miss the little vamps… I was hoping there would be a wombie vamp this year, sigh….
Perhaps that’s how we can break into the mainstream, Wombie Vamps! The Tale of Count Wombia & The Little Vamps.
that sounds like a excellent suggestion.
I wonder if the wombie vamps will only suck chocolate blood? if they do, I am in big trouble!
Chocolate vampires, I like that! They would be very happy around Easter, I’m sure. They could probably get their year’s supply of chocolate blood in the week after Easter.
television is where I find all my drivel to chat about. I will come sit with Chris & drivel with him.
Good, that way he’ll have someone to talk to so he won’t bug us anymore.
I try not to let my little critters run the zoo, but some days they’re too clever. Happy Easter Wombies!
The little critters can be quite creative when it suits them! Happy Easter.
I feel sorry for Chris the more I read your story Binky. Give the man some respect please
You’re right, we probably should treat him better. He does supply all of our chocolate.
Irony is wasted on some people.
Ironic, isn’t it?
Boy those are some CLEAN plates!
When they like what they’re served, the Wombies lick their plates clean. Hardly even need a dishwasher.
I had that same conversation with my son
Did you win, or did he?
That information has been marked classified.
I’ll need to upgrade my security clearance, then.
Yes, it must have been; ” No clean plates, no TV! ” They are very clean….so, it is the mindless drivel
That’s right, they always must clean their plates before they can watch TV.
