Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling The Mind-Bending Adventures of Percival Dunwoody Idiot Time-Traveler from 1909 Percival: Egad! What a marvelous invention! Whatever do you call it? Man: A BUTTER CHURN! Again, Mr. Dunwoody: you traveled BACK in time! It's 1872! Percival: Good lord! In that case, I've created a time-paradox I must rectify immediately! Percival: As much as it pains me, I must now find and kill my own grandfather! Man: What? But why? Percival: I hate that foul-smelling old coot! Do I need any more reason than that? 2010 Percival: Take that, Gramps! Now the space-time continuum is safe from your halitosis! BAM Grandfather: Huh? Percival: My stars! Is that tiny thing a music-listening device? Woman: My iPod? Yeah... Percival: What wondrous times!! How very small your butter churns must be in this age! Man: Help! There's been a murder! Percival: And behold! What a delight fully novel fad! I must show it to my grandchildren! Come! 1928 Percival: Hi, it's me! I'm talking! Good day! Man: Mr. Dunwoody, cell phones won't work in 1928! There's no network! Percival: What is a "cell phone"? This is a SNUFF BOX! Woman: Look at that, Mabel! The latest fad! Woman: Hello, Snuff Box! How are you? I'm quite fine! Percival: Great Scott! She's being filmed! Percival: When later generations see that film of her engaged in futuristic fad of Snuff-Box-Talking, it will create ANOTHER time-paradox! Percival: Hello, I am YOU, five minutes from now, here to PREVENT that time-paradox! Percival #2: Well-played BAM Next: But was he too late?
