Doc is the only puma in Yuma…

April 16, 2008

puma-2-180.jpgBlog Guy, I’m new here, and my donkey has a bad toothache. Can you recommend a dentist?

Welcome to Arizona. I checked your policy, and your donkey is only covered for dental work if it’s done by a puma. That’d be old Doc Cougar, up on the hill.

Doc Cougar, huh? Guess I better haul my ass up there.

Hey, we don’t use language like that… Oh. You meant your donkey…

Yep. So this Doc Cougar. He’s the only puma in Yuma?

Heck, he’s the only puma from Yuma to Montezuma!

What are “original heads?”

Never mind — I don’t want to know.

Mona Lisa, Mount Rushmore, Puma Dentist. And I thought Cat Scriptures was odd.

So, Doctor Moreau is actually the reverse of reality? What the hell kind of animal am I in reality? Let me absorb this for a second.
