    Good Morning to You!

    Ooola, are you sure that’s a good idea?

    Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 20 “The Coup in Moo Falls Mainly on Oop”(166) 1/30/2014 Thursday

    Alley and Ooola have to figure some way of killing the blue hopping dinosaur. Sooner or later it could escape. And they need to release the four kings imprisoned on their thrones who are also in danger.
    Ooola sees that spiny green quadruped with only a few spikes left. More or growing but they are just nubs. “Alley, I think that little green one could choke our big blue meanie if he goes in wrong.”
    “Great idea Ooola, we just need to get that little fella inside Big Blue’s mouth and maybe he’ll choke on it.

    Big Blue has gone back to feast more on the now dead albino mastodon. No sign of the red pterasaur, Sheema or Eeny.

    In the thick jungle the female xooloo spider carried the barely conscious Wootietoot on its leathery back looking for its burrow. She was the very one that found Wootietoot before when she came walking into xooloo spider territory and fell in to one of their traps. There was something about Wootietoot’s mind that keep the female from biting her and dragging her way to nourish the females eggs. They bonded on a psychic level. Wootietoot has that gift but would have never known it if not for her mishap in the first place decades ago.

    I would think she would know what’s foodable. The flora can’t be all that different in Lem as they are the same geographical area as Moo.

    Recall that these people have lived in the forest all of their lives so they are experts in what they can eat and can’t eat. Ooola should have not trouble.

    Except that these are Lemian Opposite Berries; the ones that look edible are poisonous.

    Agreed. She grew up learning what not to eat. I think the Lemians will arrest her for stealing berries. Either that, or they will induce hallucinations.

    The berries will induce hallucinations, not the Lemians.

    But there’s no “berry picking prohibited” sign posted. It’ll never hold up in court. They wont have a case against her.
    If they can have a town limit and downtown signs they can certainly splurge for the no(se) picking sign.

    Don’t forget the Bender factor.

    Exactly! We know that Ooola is too smart to eat something that may be harmful to her, but the Benders are notorious for throwing curve balls!

    Its either a coffee bush or a coca plant. If coffee, she can chew some berries (beans) and get perked up by caffeine (and numerous other biochems). I it is coca, slowly chewing the leaves will let Oola regain enough stamina to carry on through the jungle.

    They’re the same berries as from the Hunger Games! Oh no! But don’t worry, the Lemian guards following her will rush in to stop her just before it’s too late.

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop.
    Wondering in the jungle, Ooola’s getting all bruised up.
    Faint from hunger, the berry plant, she is looking at,
    doesn’t have fallen berries, so either animals or birds have
    eaten all the fallen berries or the berries are still green (or
    poisonous) so no one has eaten them. Definitely a
    tough decision. Starve or be possibly poisoned. When
    hunger gets too strong we know what the decision will be.

    Yeah, Ooola … I think you can see those berries from Kansas.

    Duh!!!
