Brain and Pinky Together Forever

Three jokes culled from the internet, just to get things rolling here…

What is small, furry and brilliant at sword fights?

A mouseketeer!

***

What did Tom get when he locked Jerry in the freezer?

Mice cubes!

***

Why do mice need oiling?

Because they squeak.

Two people in the house, both with the flu for over a week now. An ongoing debate over who feels worse. MSH wins today. Hooray for him.

Between us both we’re nearly a half person.

I feel like that infamous mouse duo of Warner Brothers cartoon fame “Pinky and the Brain.” I’m not sure which of us is which. Who’s half crazy and who’s insane.

Personally I always cheered for Pinky. He’s so sweetly naïve and innocently brilliant at times, I can’t help but hope the best for the little guy.

It’d be nice wandering through life like Pinky oblivious to the strangeness of the world. To blithely stumble around, happy no matter what. Eager to follow along on every hair-brained adventure someone suggests. And then at the end of a misadventure stumble home to a well stocked cage to sleep until the next grand escapade.

Of course, there’s the flip side.

Brain, the eternal optimist, never gives up on his plans to take over the world, regardless of how many plans have failed. He seems oblivious to the shortcomings of his ideas and overly sure of his prowess and intelligence. He plows ahead every night.

I have to wonder what would happen if he succeeded with one of his plans to take over the world? Would it throw off his chi? Could he handle success? Does he secretly sabotage himself every night so he never succeeds? That’s doubtful, but it does make you go, “hmm.”

Alas, life is no cartoon episode, although it can get pretty laughable around this place sometimes.

I could use a little more of each cartoon mouse’s traits, a little more happy-go-lucky like Pinky, a little more optimism and daring like Brain. Maybe between the two of them they’re a whole sane mouse.

Enough wondering.

Enjoy the short clip I’ve included for your perusal. Let me know who you root for. Pinky? Or Brain?
