It was the first MOUSCAR race of the season, and the unveiling of Mark Meadowvole’s car sponsored by Dewclaw’s Fine Meats. This was the Provolone 500, the first event in the Scamper Cup series.
Mark finished a respectable seventh. The winner was the perpetual champion Richard Rodent, who has amassed enough trophies to fill an airplane hanger…or his own ego. One has to respect his success, even though it’s getting a bit repetitive.
I mentioned a while back that the racing organizers are featuring Mark in their promotions. True, but that’s nothing compared with the attention they give to Mr. Rodent. That’s understandable, although it is frustrating for up-and-coming competitors like Mark.
The race itself was exciting, as the cheese proved to be hidden in a spot in the maze that was difficult for them to locate. According to MOUSCAR rules it’s possible to have a winner without the cheese being found. Once the driver starting in the pole position drives 500 miles with no one finding the cheese, the race is stopped and the driver nearest to the cheese receives the checkered flag. That’s what occurred here.
I'm sure things will work out if Mark can just hold off on eating board room tables . . . if only until after the contract is signed!
Reading about MOUSECAR it sounds a lot more exciting than the sport it's based on. I wouldn't mind watching professional drivers race through a hedge maze. It sure beats a loop, and I like that it actually ends at some point with the 500 mile caveat. That way it wouldn't be any longer than something like the Daytona 500.
Sunday's comic was funny but went a little over my head. Was the survey for the act of predation? Or was snake just hungry, and ate a paying customer before they could finish an exit survey for some unidentified service?
They've become omnivores, although his preference for nuts and berries is going to become an issue.
Lol, looks like Lin can't abide laziness. That makes her crush on Wendell all the more understandable. Say what you want about the kid; he might be hot headed and hyperactive, but he certainly isn't lazy.
