The Joys Dark Underbelly

"Mommy, we want to show you our new game!"

"Okay," I say.

The Mayor and The Rooster stand facing each other.

The Rooster holds out her hand with her palm facing up.

"Look Mayor! I've got a brand new baby!"

"Aw," The Mayor coos, "are you going to be such a good mom and take good care of your little baby?"

With a look of sinister glee, Rooster pops the imaginary baby in her mouth, makes noisy chomping sounds and swallows.

Baby devoured.

The Mayor and The Rooster laugh themselves to tears and begin again.

"Look Mayor! I've got a brand new baby!"

Oh, The Macabre House of Joy.

How very Zeusonian (is that a word?) of them. You just gotta love the inner workings of their dark and twisty little minds.

Robin said...

Kids love anything absurd. They don't get how macabre it is - they just know that NO ONE eats babies.

Vodka Mom said...

Your kids continue to crack me up!

Emily said...

Careful, there. Lest she start spewing baby parts.

Hope everyone (including the imaginary baby) starts feeling well, soon.

babies are the little known staple diet of the praetorian guard. Seriously, look it up.

Scary Mommy said...

Kids are too damn funny. Love that!!!

I always say babies are so cute I could almost eat them.
Maybe I should stop.
