I can't believe I am actually participating in this challenge. I hope I can make it all the way through. I'm going to need lots of Red Bull. My theme for this challenge is fictional characters including but not limited to cartoons, tv shows, video games, movies, books, etc. Now let's have some fun.

I, PTM, have commandeered the show Inside the Actor's Studio hosted by James Lipton for the A to Z challenge. James is safely being held prisoner until May. He will get plenty of food and water, no need to call the cops. For the month of April, I am renaming his show to Inside the Fictional Character's Studio.

PTM: So I was suppose to have Mr. Ed on the program today. I figured having a talking horse would be pretty awesome. My producers have informed me that Mr. Ed couldn't actually talk, that he was voiced by Allan Lane. I decided if I couldn't have a talking horse why not have the man behind the horse? 
Terry (my producer): Umm PTM, Mr. Ed and Allan Lane died over 40 years ago.
PTM: What?!? How did I not know this? Who am I suppose to have on as a guest now?
Terry (my producer): Give me15 minutes, I will see who is available last minute.
PTM: I guess we will wait. If you have to use the bathroom or need a snack, I would take advantage of the break.
Jeopardy music plays
Terry: We got someone!!
PTM: Who?
Terry: Mr. Bigglesworth from the Austin Powers franchise. He is actually only a few minutes away.
PTM: I guess a talking cat is just as good as a talking horse. Bring him aboard.
more waiting
A man holding Mr. Bigglesworth enters. Places him in the interview chair.
PTM: Thank you for joining us on such short notice.
Mr. Bigglesworth: He starts licking himself.
PTM: Do you live close by?
Mr. Bigglesworth: Meows and starts to claw the chair.
PTM: Are you purposely ignoring me? Do you not want to be here?
Mr. Bigglesworth: Looks at PTM and goes back to licking himself.
PTM: Ok, is this a joke or something? Terry, are you behind this?
Terry: I spoke to a gentleman on the phone and he said he was bringing Mr. Bigglesworth.
Man that carried in Mr. B: You spoke to me. What's the problem?
PTM: Why isn't he talking?
Man: He's just a cat. He doesn't talk.
PTM: Terry, why did you tell me that this cat talked?
Terry: I thought he did.
PTM: And you, whatever your name is, weren't you at all curious about why we would want to interview a cat?
Man: I was told I would get $150 for bringing him here.
Mr. B. starts to cough up a hairball.
PTM: Well you have been lied to. Take that cat and get off my stage!!
Man storms off with Mr B. who is still coughing.
PTM: Well this day has gone no where. Sorry for the confusion folks. Hopefully the next guest we have will be alive and able to speak.

I enjoyed the interview just the same!

Mr. Bigglesworth can't talk? That makes Dr. Evil more insane than he was before given how he talked to him all the time. I assumed the cat could talk back too.

Melissa Ann Goodwin said...

That was a very clever idea!

Did you try scratching his butt? You should have scratched his butt.

Bald cats are just creepy anyway.

Spanj said...

Haha! Typical cat (he can talk really, but only does so when everyone's out of the room!)

Birgit said...

That was not Mr. Bigglesworth. I have kidnapped him and replaced him with Justin Bieber who should stop licking himself in public like that

Al Penwasser said...

Bald cats may be creepy, but he can lick himself. Surely that counts for something.

Chuck said...

Damn cats! They are so arrogant...I guess because they can lick themselves. You don't see my dog getting all stuck up because he can do that.

Feline bastard!

Lol! That's what you get for trying to get a cat... said...

I'm with Al. You should've given the man a cut, since the cat licked himself twice. Oh, well. Mr Ed was much smarter than that cat anyway.

Aaaah yes... employees just never do what they're supposed to. Sigh...
