Deal 1169: Squeak!

Life on the bat-stretching line is not for everyone. Especially not for those with extended hearing ranges.

They squeak when stretched, you know. Terribly loudly, but mostly also terribly high-pitched.

Most people find it rather off-putting. But without stretching, bats would never be as fit for flight.

Are your bats freshly stretched?

Does your belfry need attention?

A visit from a skilled bat-stretcher will cure-all that ails.


Deal 1168: Chicken little’s mirror

The magic mirror promised her beauty beyond compare. In exchange, she merely had to offer cautious advice to her friends.

This went on for some years without issue or concern, until the panic set in.

Little did she know what was in store for her. The sky had been her constant companion, and now it was at risk. She had to warn her friends.

But that put her at odds with her promise to her mirror.

How could she possibly decide?

Which came first?

Her image or her friends?

As she panicked unable to decide, the sky opened up and the storm arrived. The worst storm seen in the barnyard in generations.

As she floated off across the road, she knew she should have warned her friends, but her vanity had stood in the way.


Deal 1143: Not Lucky

Luck is a limiting factor, which must be tamed by proper engineering. If left unchecked, and your creations are working by Luck alone, you have to worry about what will happen when Luck runs out to get a gallon of milk.

Luck is also fickle. If she catches you depending on her, she’ll back out and leave your gadget high and dry.

Worse, if she catches you flirting with Chance, you won’t know what hit you.

So avoid depending on Luck. Sit back and enjoy a proper cup of luke-warm tea.

And turn on that infinite improbability drive. If you dare!
