You may recall some time back when Brother Oliver and I went on a Sasquatch hunt. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but turned out to be pretty silly. It wasn’t a complete waste though because it resulted in a running joke that Brother Henry is part Bigfoot. Every chance he gets, Brother Oliver tries to sneak up on Brother Henry and get photos of his feet. He then shows the photos to Thomas and Me claiming that he has gathered more irrefutable evidence that Bigfoot exists. He showed Me and Thomas his latest bit of “evidence” this morning, dramatically pronouncing that he had photographed the rare Splayed-toed Sasquatch.
When I saw the photo, I burst out laughing. Thomas looked at it, said, “You guys are so weird.” and then walked away. I swear I heard him chuckling softly as he disappeared though. After Thomas left, Brother Oliver said, “If you think the evidence of the Splayed-toed Sasquatch is compelling, Leader Otis, you should see what else I have discovered!” Brother Oliver pulled out another picture and, looking smug, said, “Behold the Bare-butted Bigfoot!”
After looking at the photo, I said,”You know what Brother Oliver? I think the Bigfoot humor has run its course. It just doesn’t seem funny any more.” Then I walked away in the direction of My food bowl. Thomas passed Me as I did so, heading back toward Brother Oliver. As I arrived at My bowl, I heard Thomas burst out laughing. I’m pretty sure it was because he thought Brother Oliver was so weird.
So Sayeth Otis
