Osama's Mama

My 3-year-old is a terrorist. His victims are furry rodents, not the American satan, but he's as relentless as Al Qaeda as he carries out the fatwa against squirrels and wabbits. "Come out here, wabbit!" he shrieks, shouldering a wiffle bat. They're nowhere to be found; word has spread among the bunny community of a shaggy-headed, chubby-legged warrior bent on mayhem, and they've gone way underground. Our flowers are safe as long as Osama Bun-Battin remains as relentlessly determined as he is to root out and destroy the cotton-tailed infidel.

Ha! The little terrorist wielding a wiffle ball bat! I love it!

Send him this way this summer. Will he be willing to deal with deer?

FranIAm said...

Oh dear - don't tell Delia - she and Niblet will never visit you now!

I actually have discovered some wascally wabbit is eating my tulips.

When can I expect you guys?

CDP said...

Dcup--He's tiny but fearless. If infidel deer are defiling your holy garden, he'll destroy them.

Fran--I'm just waiting for Ms. Guzman to read this...tee hee.

CDP - I have a dog he can borrow if he ever gets tired of the wiffle bat. He' likes chasing rabbits.

Doesn't he know that it's fiddler crab season?

Those poow wascally wabbits!

I love the tone of this post. Your writing style is really great.

Constant vigilance!

CDP said...

Spartacus--is your dog a big dog? He tends to try to climb up and ride big dogs, with mixed reception from the dogs.

BeckEye--I'm not sure where the fiddler crab stands theologically; he might not object to them.

enc--thank you!

Dr. Monkey--exactly!

That's one of my favorites!
Now I'm going to sing that for the rest of the day.

We should hook him up with our family cat Turtle and they can go on patrol together. Although I suppose since Turtle is small and furry I should probably keep him away from your Tiny Man and his plastic bat.

Hilarious post.

CDP said...

Turtle would be safe! Tiny Man LOVES cats. They don't always love him, since he has a vigorous way of expressing affection, but he wouldn't apply the bat!
