Creamy Nougat Center

Prompt: Encrusted

Dear Wednesday,

Winter has returned to our little corner of the world. Freezing cold, some snow, brisk winds, and I have to wear socks.

The lakeshore is encrusted with rough little glaciers where frigid waves pounded against the sand and froze in place. Is that the correct usage of today’s word prompt, “encrusted”? Yes or no.

There are no cartoons in all the world that I would want to look at that include the word encrusted. So may I present instead a few of my favourite cartoons that are less than tenuously related to the prompt by way of the root word, crust?

cartoon yogi crust

cartoon red lobster 2

(Did you see what I did there?)

cartoon earth crust

Time to go get the fireplace going.

Stay warm!


The Stablest of All

Prompt: Bewildered


Wednesday! You look bewildered. It is impossible for a thinking day of the week, or person, not to be bewildered by the power allotted to a certain politician. I know I am bewildered, as are most of my countrymen.

And we are not actually bewildered that such a human being exists, but that so many millions of people thought him worthy of high office. That is a crazy sandwich.

To wit:

cartoon trump genius

cartoon trump power

cartoon trump stick

Be careful out there.


Luggage Reunion

Prompt: Conveyor

Hello Wednesday! You are looking very sunny, but very cold.

I’ve decided to start a Throwback Thursday here at Fluffy Pool, wherein I’ll repost some old favourite stories that you might have missed. Tomorrow I’ll republish the very first Leep the Creep story, from February, 1016.

So that’s: Cartoon Wednesday, Throwback Thursday… and what next? Will theme days help me fulfill my daily writing promise? How about Food Friday. Sexy Saturday. Simple Sunday. Mystery Monday. Titivating Tuesday…?

Fickle Friday, Serendipitous Saturday, Sandwich Sunday, Martian Monday, Tortilla Tuesday?

Flying Squirrel Friday, Sanctimonious Saturday, Seething with Unsaid Thoughts Sunday, Marionette Monday, Torso Tuesday?


As the recondite Daily Prompt is “conveyor”, may I present a few of my favourite cartoons, loosely connected?

cartoon airport dogs

cartoon conveyor belt

cartoon baggage carousel

Have a sunny, warm, healthy, Seething with Unsaid Thoughts week!


Before I Kill You…

Prompt: Dominant

Oh, Wednesday.

You now remind me how little I am writing. I see the gaps in the calendar, Wednesday to Wednesday. You are becoming a nag. I would like to transfer all my frustration and laziness to you, if that is ok.

Thank you, Wednesday.

As for today’s prompt, “dominant”, may I present a few of my favourite cartoons, which are marginally relevant to the theme?

cartoon mantis sex

cartoon patriarchy

cartoon bossy too

Wednesday, I forgive you.


Be Honest

Prompt: Agile

Hello Wednesday,

My physiotherapist— treating Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome in my knee, which is much less serious than it sounds— is named Jonathan, and he gives me a series of simple exercises to do each day as “homework”. Just some stretching, bending, balancing, partial squats; but do you think it’s easy for me to keep up the routine? Maybe the issue is calling it homework. Years and years of serious strategizing to avoid all school work but especially the home kind have left me stubborn and resistant. And unlike school work, I can’t suddenly cram all my homework into one session on the Thursday night before my Friday appointment.

So in the interest of impressing Jonathan with improvements in my strength, flexibility, and balance, allow me to leave you with this small collection of favourite yet extremely tangentially agile-themed cartoons, while I go off and twist a few body parts:

cartoon pamplona bull

cartoon gym improv

cartoon blob no exercise

To your good health and flexibility…
