The Fable of Sourball

Once upon a time there was a very fat cat named Sourball. Actually Sourball was more than just fat. She was a freakish morbidly obese cat who was completely addicted to sex and having kittens.

Sourball was normally very content with her life. Her favorite hobby was to get very very high and roam the streets looking for a stray cat to mount her. She was used to having several litters of kittens every year and she rather enjoyed the process. Her pregnancies usually meant that she received a lot more attention and got a whole lot more food. And each and every time--within about two months--she would give birth to a wonderfully bright and frisky litter of fresh kittens.

This went on for several years. Sourball never thought that much about how she was living her life because she was just concerned with having big instant fun on a day-to-day basis.

But then something curious happened. Sourball got pregnant...as usual...but this time something wasn't right. Instead of giving birth to her kittens she began to lay on the floor in constant pain...contantly wishing and praying that the kittens would be born. But they weren't born. In fact, it was now about 12 months later and she was still pregnant.

Concerned and confused, Sourball went to her veterinarian to see what the problem might be.

"To be honest..." said the vet in a deadpan manner. "...it would be impossible to diagnose the exact cause of the problem without a very involved surgery. But my educated guess is that there are large hard lumps of resistant feces resting in your large intestine that are blocking the tubes through which the kittens would normally pass."

"So what am I to do?" asked Sourball.

"You might stop eating for a few days and see if the problem corrects itself," the vet suggested.

Once home, Sourball decided she would not eat anything until her kittens were born. Not a single damn thing. But two hours later she felt sharp hunger pains in her stomach...and she couldn't resist the urge to go on an all-out eating binge. She ate chicken and tuna and salmon and cheese and pizza and salad and frosted cake and eggs and liver and sausage and noodles and...well, she ate just about anything and everything in sight.

As she lay on her side aching from excessive overeating Sourball suddenly felt sharp pains in her abdomen.

"At LAST!" she cried with joy. "At last my kittens will finally be BORN!"

But as she looked down to see her first child she was horrified to find that it was only a lone bowel movement laying sloppily underneath her tail. She stared at it and became startled to find that it was slowly crawling toward her stomach in an apparent attempt to nurse.

Sourball got up and ran. She ran and ran until she could run no more. And then she fell on her side again, unable to continue because of her grossly oversized torso.

As she lay in the grass in a state of confusion, a small mole crawled out of a hole and stood defiant right in front of her large drippy snout.

"I have been sent to give you a MESSAGE!" the mole declared loudly.

"What message?" Sourball asked. "What message is this?"

"The message is...you will never ever give birth to this particular litter of kittens. You will keep thinking and hoping that the kittens will eventually be born but they will not. YOU WILL BE PREGANT FOREVER AND EVER FOR THE REST OF YOUR GODDAMN LIFE."

Sourball nodded her head knowingly...because she knew that this was only the beginning. She began to purr...softly at first, but increasingly louder as she accepted her fate.

And therein lies the moral of this fable.

Anything worth doing
Isn't worth



Over the rainbow
Skies are



I want to be
Real but I never
Will be.



No good deed
Goes nowhere.



Pushing peoples' buttons
Is like playing the piano.
Practice makes



There's always enough



You can
Judge a book
By its






Be unreasonable.
Everyone else



Our differences
Are what make us




If people wouldn't
Leave things there
Wouldn't be any
Left overs.



It's always easy
For me to see
How wrong everyone else is
Because I'm always



Nice and normal on the
Harsh, sick, and alienated on the



The world revolves
Around those who fail to



The future
Never happened.



Being part of the
Problem is ten times
More interesting than being
Part of the
