A Friend in Need

Episode 28 of The Meditations of Diogenes The Cynic.

To hear the story, maybe try a different approach.

This week in The Prattler, "Standards and Measures."







To read the story, check under Diogenes' tub for the the transcript.

Great story. Hey, I know that voice...

That's a lot of legs and loincloth and pride.

Where are the girls?

ariel said...

unfortunately I have no sound on this computer but I love the story.

truth is not for everyone. to some it's a thorn stuck under their skin keeping them from living, and the one that eases them from it will do them real good. *reaches out one hand*

actonbell said...

Absolutely superb! And I love your definition of felinity:)
(I wish that included purrrfect behavior in all things, in gratitude to the one who fills the food bowl)

pia said...

False pride ruins many things, but I guess can be walked on

Pia Savage said...

Yes I have never heard that voice so animated in parts

Don't we all walk with thorns in our sides sometimes?

mireille said...

Why, just last weekend you pulled a thorn out of MY paw! Does that make me honest? xoxo

puppybrose said...

wow. quite the pointed tale this week, eh, Doug?

HAHAHAHAHAHA.

sorry... you know how easily amused i am, at times. that said, i LOVELOVELOVED this week's edition -- and thought it superb.

BRAVO! : )

the quill said...

Diogenes, the savior of accountants and lions ... no wonder his new best friend is a thorn.

Doug said...

Aral, it's cheering to see you up there. There's a girl in next week's story. That's kinda evolved, right?

Ariel, there's no truth in me.

Actonbell, you're thinking of caninity.

Exactly, Pia. Pride is a corn.

Mireille, it makes you feline. Well, it acknowledges that you always were.

A pun, Neva? You?

Quill, birds of feather.

Now all Diogenes needs is a rose.

Diogenes is wearing a loincloth. You decided to cover his manly bits in this episode. Shucks! I came here expecting the full monty.

ariel said...

Doug, I meant someone could be so nice and ease me from mine. although they say women are all lies, so maybe it's just a thorn really. :)

Doug said...

Jamie Dawn, the rose makes a funny image. Diogenes The Cynic Mata Hari.

Sorry, Ariel. I misunderstood. I never say that women are all lies. Who knows what they say?

TLP said...

I think that Diogenes is an Auditor. An auditor is someone who wishes he were an accountant, but doesn't have the personality for it.

G said...

With thorns for brothers, who need enemies? Or something.

I love the turn back to your reading of Diogenes querying "Are you honest?" Seems that the tale is headed home.

Superb!

Doug said...

Hahaha, TLP. May as well work for the Commonwealth at that point.

G, I think we're 2/3 of the way there. At least I'm feeling like we're in the last act.
