One of the benefits of using "Another Monster at the End of This Book" as a cutting board for balsa wood is that if I aim things very precisely, I might get to gouge out the Poky Little Puppy's eyes*. It's actually not a bad book, if you haven't read it. The original is better, of course.

Incidentally, trying to make nice round holes in balsa wood sucks ass.


Actually, I'd go for Mickey Mouse's eyes first. I just like talking about the Poky Little Puppy. Ah, Little Golden Books.

Use masking tape. Helps keep it from splintering all over, and making a mess.

Aw, I used to read The Poky Little Puppy.

I saw a new edition of a Golden Book - They've totally ruined the aesthetics of them. So sad. These kids today don't know how good things (like See-and-Says and ViewMasters, for example) used to be. :)

God, how old am I?!??!

Is it just me, or does Poky seem to be spelled wrong? I mean, I can't think of any other way to spell it, but ever since being 3 and reading that book, I've thought it looked just *wrong*.

Pokey isn't good either, but I guess that's a little more acceptable. It has the double vowel thing going on.

perhaps we should make our own dictionary and make it acceptable ot use poky, pokey, and pokie. then all our bases are covered.

Don't forget pokee and poki. Those would need to be listed in order to do the puppy justice..

There's also poké, as in pokémon. (Little Golden Books presaged the coming of pikachu - who'd have thought?)
