The Princess and the Piece of Kibble

Once upon a time, in a land not far enough away...

There lived a fair princess, more delicate than a petunia petal.

Behold; I am delicate.

But there were members of the royal staff who were skeptical of the princess' royal heritage, and plotted to put her to the test.

Lord of the Bedchamber: That's no lady.
Deputy Clerk of the Closet: Yeah, she's about as royal as Burger King.

And that night, secretly, before the princess finished brushing her teeth with a fish flavored kitty Greenie, the two dubious staffers conned a commoner into sticking a piece of kibble under the princess' mattress (a huge pile of towels).

Not a rodent turd.

If the princess was truly royalty, her delicate skin would detect the bump under her towel-mattress and she would not be able to sleep.

What are dogs doing in my bedchamber?

Who are you calling a dog, cat face? You'll address me as Lord. And he's the Deputy.

But the Deputy had become fixed on something...

It's calling my name.

It's coming from in here!

Found it!

Mmmm, tasted like chicken!

Unfortunately for the staff, the princess later got wind of their hair-brained scheme and had them demoted to Court jesters.


The End


The inspiration for this hair-brained blog post?
Right here. Pure Sesame Street brilliance from my youth. ;)

  1. *applauds*

    'royal as burger king'
    i like that XD

  2. Not a rodent turd, huh? With bugs running willy-nilly in your house, are you sure it isn't one? Just sayin'.... ;-)

    Great post!

  3. Loved this post. Mom Julie had forgotten about the Sesame Street play on the fairy tale until you mentioned it. Great story adapted for the furries!

    Happy Saturday!


    1. Tom, those Sesame Street stories are OLD! I was a Sesame Street addict as a kid. It was all that was on TV!

  4. she looks like a princess to me!!!

  5. ROFL! That was too funny, loved it!

  6. Hilarious! I had everyone in the family read this one for a howl!

  7. That's fantastic! Too bad the temptation of the kibble was too much for Jon Boy ... now we'll never know if that kitty is really royal.

  8. "had them demoted to Court jesters." Bwahaha! They do make the perfect jesters. :)

  9. Bahahahahaaaa! LOVED this, shared it on The Daily Corgi's facebook page. TCOC just keeps getting funnier.
