Mystic Mouse and Calamity Cat (Anonymous)
Mystic Mouse played tricks on Calamity Cat.
Calamity Cat thought he was Swiss Cheese.
“EEK! You’re full of holes,” Mystic said.
“So I am!” exclaimed poor frizzled kitty.
“What’s to be done? I’m yucky cheese!”
“I’ll fix you up,” said Mystic. “Abracadabra!”
Calamity Codfish hoovered Mystic Mouse whole: “BURP!”
