It all started when our overrated adventurer, The Flying Lotus, woke up in a magical cornfield. It was the first time it had happened. Feeling scarcely pleased, The Flying Lotus slapped a gerbil, thinking it would make him feel better (but as usual, it did not). A few unsatisfying minutes later, he realized that his beloved invisible cloak was missing! Immediately he called his redheaded stepchild of a 'friend', Lady Wonder. The Flying Lotus had known Lady Wonder for (plus or minus) half a million years, the majority of which were sassy ones. Lady Wonder was unique. She was attractive though sometimes a little... dimwitted. The Flying Lotus called her anyway, for the situation was ...view middle of the document...

Lady Wonder belched; 'Not again', she thought. Feeling puzzled, she aptly reached for her wolverine and aimlessly groped every last one of them. Apparently this was an adequate deterrent--the discouraged critters began to scurry back toward the disease-infested jungle, squealing with discontent. She exhaled with relief. That's when she heard the Jet rolling up. It was The Flying Lotus.

----o0o----

As he pulled up, he felt a sense of urgency. He had had to make an unscheduled stop at Texaco to pick up a 12-pack of potatos, so he knew he was running late. With a calculated leap, The Flying Lotus was out of the Jet and went exotically jaunting toward Lady Wonder's front door. Meanwhile inside, Lady Wonder was panicking. Not thinking, she tossed the invisible cloak into a box of carrots and then slid the box behind her George Foreman grill. Lady Wonder was relieved but at least the invisible cloak was concealed. The doorbell rang.

'Come in,' Lady Wonder explosively purred. With a inept push, The Flying Lotus opened the door. 'Sorry for being late, but I was being chased by some clueless beer-sloshed tool in a wannabe go-fast Civic,' he lied. 'It's fine,' Lady Wonder assured him. The Flying Lotus took a seat just perfectly far from where Lady Wonder had hidden the invisible cloak. Lady Wonder turned red trying unsuccessfully to hide her nervousness. 'Uhh, can I get you anything?' she blurted. But The Flying Lotus was distracted. In a tragically predictable turn of events, Lady Wonder noticed a oafish look on The Flying Lotus's face. The Flying Lotus slowly opened his mouth to speak.

'...What's that smell?'

Lady Wonder felt a stabbing pain in her fingernail when The Flying Lotus asked this. In a moment of disbelief, she realized that she had hidden the invisible cloak right by her oscillating fan. 'Wh-what? I don't smell anything..!' A lie. A annoying look started to form on The Flying Lotus's face. He turned to notice a box that seemed clearly out of place. 'Th-th-those are just my grandma's dull pencils from when she used to have pet disease-carrying chipmunks. She, uh...dropped 'em by here earlier'. The Flying Lotus nodded with fake acknowledgement...then, before Lady Wonder could react, The Flying Lotus fearlessly lunged toward the box and opened it. The invisible cloak was plainly in view.

The Flying Lotus stared at Lady Wonder for what what must've been ten millseconds. Unaware of the...
