Okie: Ariel, I was rooting through that box in the corner looking for something to cough up a furball on, when I came across this picture. Who is it?
Ariel: Allow me to introduce my great grandmother, Formaldehyde.
O: Formaldehyde? What’s a Formaldehyde?
A: Formaldehyde was the only child of Otis and Winky Fluffenheiser of Akron, OH. She ran away at age 2 to perform in a traveling circus. She was a famous cabaret dancer, with admirers from all across the world.
O: Why does this other picture show her sitting on a bale of hay and eating flies?

A: How humiliating...
