No comments on the luppie? Apparently we are all speechless.
It just seems such a sad little thing I couldn’t bear to be mean.
I notice he has a door in his back or something. What’s that all about?
Mike – I have a spelling question: If the singular of “puppies” is “puppy,” shouldn’t the singular of “luppies” be “luppy?” I wasn’t sure if you meant that spelling on purpose.
Peter – What do you think the back door on a puppy is for? 😉
You are right Megan. I was just dreaming in my heart of hearts that millions of web purveyors would read “My Contribution to Today: A Luppie” (sic) and want a luppy. “Luppies!”, they’d scream in Minneapolis. “Luppies!”, they scream in Bangkok. “Los Luppies!”, they’d scream in Mexico City. The result was that I pluralized a singular thing in eager, unconscious anticipation. Now it is obvious that this misspelling was instead just a symptom of a repressed, desperate hope.
I’ll correct it.
I sort of came to expect your all-over-the-alphabet, illogical spellings. After all, how else would we know “mell worms” or the color “blake”?
All I can say is, …”Where is the picture of the camera?”
