Bubby Saves the World

Hey Mom. Please don’t interrupt me. I’ve got some highly important business to attend to.

Well, you see this here window crank? Basically, I have to crank this like a bazillion times a day, just to keep the earth spinning on its axis. I know, I know, it’s a hard job– just be glad I’m here to do it.

I’ll let you in on a little secret. If it weren’t for my amazing man-skills and technically advanced cranking abilities, I’m afraid this whole place would simply collapse. Did I mention how HIGHLY IMPORTANT this job is?

So, if you’ll excuse me, I’m just gonna get back to the ole crankity-crank-crank.

Let’s see, does it go right then left…or is it left then right?


May-day, may-day! It appears we’ve hit some turbulence and I’ve just been ruckusly knocked from my post!

Now, (grunt) if I could just scootch back over there so I can continue my vitally critical task of crankin the crank!

Ahem, do you mind? I could really use a boost over here.

Whew…that was a close one.

Hmmm, I’m gettin kinda hungry. It’s not easy bein a hero and all.

This thing tastes worse than baby food and I didn’t think anything could taste worse than that. At least it doesn’t stink.

Wonder what’s for dinner?

Aaaack! MOM! You scared me! I thought you were supposed to be washin dishes or somethin.

You don’t have to watch me every second. I’m fully capable of operating this crank without supervision.

Grown-ups! They’re always makin sure you don’t have too much fun.

Now, where was I? Oh yeah…I was just savin the world.
