Howdy, horror fans. I just rocketed in from Altuna, (not to be confused with the place in California) a distant planet earthlings have not discovered yet.
On my planet, everyone looks like a body builder and feeds on gerbils. After twenty years on a gerbil diet, I thought I would try hamster or squirrel. I heard through the galaxy grapevine, they are in plentiful supply on Earth. So here I am in all my glory.
So far, I only search for food at night so the earthlings won’t discover me. It’s harder for me to hunt at night because I’m blind without the sun.
I know, it’s a cross I have to bear. But, you know what the earthlings say, “Every blind whistle-pig, I mean groundhog, finds an acorn sometime.” Hopefully, I will find a hamster or a squirrel lurking somewhere in the inky blackness.
Wish me luck, earthlings.
