tragic, and yet still hilarious
1) Apparently many people have to deal with the "idiot pet/smart pet" dynamic;

2) I made this sort of a long-distance drive with the previous Idiot Pet twice and I can attest that all of this goes for cats as well;

3) I could do with a squeaktoy right about now myself.



(Warning, the first drawing is hella disturbing, man. There's a similar scene in Volcano that trips my "oh hell no" reflexes bad enough I'm a little twitchy thinking about it now. But then I have enough "oh hell no" reactions to fire in general that I rather suspect I must have been burned as a witch in some past life...)

You're not the only one. My reaction is lava-specific, and dates from a really disturbing claymation short that I watched in elementary school. Are you allowed to call a claymation traumatic if it still makes you twitch decades later?

Is that the one with the rock concert that ultimately makes the volcano erupt? Hm, come to think of it, that could be the root of some of my (volcano-specifc, anyway) issues too, considering how readily that pops straight to mind...

With the (I think) Aaron Copeland piece that always gets played by ice cream trucks? Yeah! They played it for us in music class--I guess to warn us about the dangers of being out of tune? And then this twit on the bus explained that you could tell the dangerous hills by their shapes, and there was one right in town... This was in Massachusetts, you understand.

The one I'm thinking of is on YouTube, if you can stand to watch it...

(And the ice cream trucks around me play either "turkey in the straw" -- and he's slightly flat, which is insanely irritating -- or "over the bounding main"...)

Scarily, that appears to be a different claymation short about a volcano set off by musicians. Who knew it was such a common theme?
