Kickass, the doorstop dog, reports that as the keeper enjoyed a glass of merlot with his beef stew last night he felt a sudden vibration against his upper lip and discovered that a housefly was creating the unusual early wine buzz. Using his unique powers of communication with all life forms, Kickass offers the following:
Kickass: It looked as if you dove in there on purpose.
Fly: That’s right. I just can’t stand it anymore.
Kickass: Can’t stand what?
Fly: The pressure, that’s what!
Kickass: Pressure from what?
Fly: All the shit. A fly just doesn’t know where to go first.
Kickass: You’re from Washington DC, right?
Fly: Right. I had to get out and then I came to Wisconsin and….
Kickass: More shit?
Fly: Unbelievable amounts. Don’t know how you stand it.
Kickass: As you can see, merlot helps.
