A Capsicum With A Secret

The human female bought a pepper yesterday, to slice up and eat with the beany glop known as “hummus.”  Apparently “hummus” is what it’s called in its native country.  And here I always thought it was called that because that’s the coughy-gaggy noise you make when you’re trying to get the taste of chickpeas and sesame out of your mouth afterwards.

So now she’s going to cut up the pepper.  WAIT!  Sigyn, did you hear that?  That pepper rattled!

Ehehehe!  The human female is looking at her pepper with grave distrust and then at me and then back to the pepper.  What?  You think I did something to it?  Put a little surprise inside?  Maaaaybe I did… Maybe there’s a great big bug in there?  Wouldn’t that be funny!

Go ahead.  Open ‘er up.  If you dare.

By Idunns’ little apples!  It’s inhabited!

The golden orange pepper has spawned a twisted little yellow and green pepper!

I did not know they could do that.

Hey!  What if it’s like those Russian nesting dolls?   Maybe there’s a smaller pepper inside the little pepper.  Keep slicing, human, and let’s get to the bottom of this!

Sadly empty.  I feel so cheated.

But it does give me some ideas for a few nifty vegetable-based pranks….

Oh, Well Done!

Sigyn, did you hear something?  I thought I heard a thumpy noise, like something out on the front porch…

Nothing over there…

Nothing over he—

Sweet Glittering Bifrost!  The Unrepentant Package Squashers have outdone themselves this time.  I asked them to pay a extra special attention to anything they were given to deliver to the humans, and they’ve surpassed my wildest dreams.

I mean, look at this!  It’s a thing of mangled beauty!

One corner is magnificently crumply.

And look, Sigyn!  Take a moment to appreciate how the sealing tape is hanging on by just a few fibers.

Careful, love.  I don’t want you entangled in what intact tape there is!

UPS, you have done yourself proud with this one!

welldoneups4

I salute you!
