Uncle Poot was a Cross-Dresser

He often dressed as a bush and sat with Aunt Tizby (shown on the right) in the front yard to the horror of his more proper neighbors.

Pinky's Having Trouble with the Hot Tub

Pinky was Pimped Out

While Pableau X and Granny D were on a recent trip to the Paducah moth collectors convention, Pinky discovered (by going through some files marked SECRET) that Pableau X and Granny D have been making loads of money off of him for the last 45 years. A Swiss bank account was set up in 1962 and has had regular deposits made since then. Pinky discovered photos that show him as a toddler wrestling with bunnies, puppies and other baby animals. Granny D and Pableau X have been selling these photos, first by mail and recently by email, to collectors of toddler/cute animal wrestling pics. Pinky feels ashamed and used, but feels obligated to speak out to stop this horrible perversion. (Pinky now understands his yearly Easter-time breakdowns.)

Pinky had No Idea About the Agressive Tendencies of Peanuts

internecine \in-ter-NESS-een\ adjective

1 : marked by slaughter : deadly; especially : mutually destructive
*2 : of, relating to, or involving conflict within a group

Example sentence:
When Pinky put the two peanuts together , it didn't take long for the internecine feuding to begin.

Did you know?
"Internecine" comes from the Latin "internecinus" ("fought to the death" or "destructive"), which traces to the verb "necare" ("to kill") and the prefix "inter-." ("Inter-" usually means "between" or "mutual" in Latin, but it can also indicate the completion of an action.) "Internecine" meant "deadly" when it appeared in English in 1663, but when Samuel Johnson entered it in his dictionary almost a century later, he was apparently misled by "inter-" and defined the word as "endeavouring mutual destruction." Johnson's definition was carried into later dictionaries, and before long his sen se was the dominant meaning of the word. "Internecine" developed the association with internal group conflict in the 20th century, and that's the most common sense today.

*Indicates the sense illustrated in the example sentence.

He Commissioned Pinky to Draw a Drumstick

Pinky prefers to draw potatoes, but he'll sell out for the right price. (Just like you.)

Pinky Worries About Things

What do Pinky and the Mock Turtle have in Common?

Beautiful Soup, so rich and green,
Waiting in a hot tureen!
Who for such dainties would not stoop?
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Soup of the evening, beautiful Soup!
Beau--ootiful Soo--oop!
Beau--ootiful Soo--oop!
Soo--oop of the e--e--eveing,
Beautiful, beautiful Soup!

"Beautiful Soup" is a parody of "Beautiful Star," a popular song by J. M. Sayles which Dodgson heard the Liddell children sing in August, 1862, after the trip to Godstow during which he began to tell some of the adventures of Alice:

Beautiful star in heav'n so bright
Softly falls thy silv'ry light,
As thou movest from earth so far,
Star of the evening, beautiful star,

Beau--ti-ful star,
Beau--ti-ful star,
Star--of the eve--ning
Beautiful, beautiful star.

Pinky wrote his own version:

Beautiful Pinky so pure and pink
A delight to see—the missing link?
He walks on water and green soup, too.
Beautiful Pinky with his chick tattoo.

HAve You Met Nadine?

If you aren't familiar with Pinky's friend/nemesis, Nadine, click on the label below to see more posts concerning Nadine. It has been suggested that Nadine doesn't exist and that she is simply one of Pinky Diablo's alter-egos. This idea is, of course, ridiculous. Nadine is REAL, and she is T.R.O.U.B.L.E.

It was by divine intervention and/or intelligent design.

Pinky Diablo: masterpiece or opustulum?

Pinky has come to the conclusion that the organic shape of meat grosses him out. From now on, he will demand his meat products to be cut into polyhedrons.

If You're a Pinky Fan, You've Seen This One!

Pinky Diablo was having trouble with possums in the pea patch and set a trap. Instead of a possum, Pinky found Satan's foot stuck in the trap (along with the rest of Mr. Beelzebub!). Pinky and Satan wrestled all morning and into the evening. As pink storm clouds piled up on the horizon, Pinky finally managed to get Satan locked into the little pink shack. But what is he going to with the Devil locked in his house?

(update: This little pink shack is Miss Love's greenhouse--Sad to say, it's being sold. Pinky loves this picture.)
