100 Below: Volume 22

“Daddy, how did you meet Mommy?”

“Well, son... long ago, Mommy was possessed, see, and I was sent to exorcise her.”

“Mommy needed exercise? Was she fat?”

“She was pregnant with the spawn of Satan, so I suppose you could say she was fat, yes.”

“She needed exercise like Barkbark, when he gets those funny tummy rolls?”

“I did have to put Mommy on a leash at one point, so it was a bit like Barkbark, yes...”

“But what happened to Mommy’s tummy fat? It was really a baby?”

“Yes. The spawn of Satan, son.”

“Satan’s my uncle?”

“Not exactly.”

[Hidden message (highlight text to see): I changed "exorcize" to "exorcise" for aesthetic reasons, not because the "-ize" ending is incorrect.]
