Title: little red riding steve - part 1
Date: November 7, 2006
Summary: Steve take a trip to gram.. er.. to Beaver's house.
Number of panels: 7
Steve SKIP!s and FROLIC!s through the woods on his way to Beaver's House, as indicated by a sign in the background. He is wearing a Little Red Riding Hood-style hood and carrying a basket, presumably full of goodies.
Steve kicks the door to the house open with a WHAMM!
Steve: "Hey Beaver! I hurried over as soon as I heard you were sick!"
Steve: "I almost didn't make it though - I met some sort of root vegetable in the woods that tried to get me to eat it. Ew!"
Steve walks up to the bed, which contains Timmy the Turnip in a sleeping cap.
Steve: "Ooh - What thick white skin you have Beaver..."
Timmy the Turnip: "All the better to protect me from garden pests, my dear."
Steve: "And my, how rich in folate you are, Beaver..."
Timmy the Turnip: "All the better to metabolize homocysteine with, my dear."
Steve: "And oh, what easily digestible long-chain carbohydrates you contain, Beaver..."
Timmy the Turnip: "All the better to..."
Timmy LEAP!s out of the bed, tossing the sleeping cap off, flying at Steve.
Timmy the Turnip: "...eat me all up! YAAAA!"
Steve: "They will release energy slowly throughout the day! The horror!"
- Steve knows the nutritional facts about turnips and can spot them with only his eyes-even when he doesn't know it's a turnip.
This storyline is an homage to the classic folktale, Little Red Riding Hood.
