Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling Doug: Max, I'm announcing my new diet. It's totally HARM-FREE to all living things. Max: You mean vegetarian? Doug: Ah, but vegetables are living things, and I will not kill them to satisfy my base cravings. Max: Not even vegetables? Doug: Nothing organic shall pass my lips! Max: But EVERYTHING you eat HAS to be organic! Doug: Au contraire! There is ONE food that is made of nothing that was EVER living!! Doug: I speak, of course, of MARSHMALLOWS! Max: What ARE marshmallows made of anyway? Doug: I'm not sure. I think they're a by-product of the oil refining process... Doug: Marshmallows, the polyester of foods, is the only wholly moral food! Max: But won't you get sick of eating JUST marshmallows? Doug: Nonsense! They're a surprisingly versatile staple! Here's a typical week's dinners... MONDAY Doug: Simple and elegant -- right out of the bag! TUESDAY The classic: roasted! WEDNESDAY Marshmallow taffy -- just mush it up! THURSDAY "Fluff," right out o' the jar! FRIDAY Rice Krispies treats -- hot out of the oven! Max: Now hold on, Doug! Rice Krispies?! And besides, I think marshmallows are made of corn syrup and gelatin... Doug: Ah, quit yer nitpickin'!
