WDS: Bright Lights, Big Rodents

We are excited to present to you highlights from the World Domination Summit which took place yesterday evening. It was a moving and glamorous experience, full of the excitement and majesty that is the hallmark of The Hamster's enlightened rule. Here we go. . .

Here we are on glittering 4th Street Live in fabulous Louisville Kentucky, site of the summit! Excitement mounts are we casually stroll up the boulevard to the awe of onlookers. The Maker's Mark Bourbon House and Lounge is just down the street aways...

As everyone knows, penguins HATE to be late for anything. So we arrived in plenty of time for the beginning of the summit festivities. Having some time on Our Despotic Hands, we decided to take in a few frames at the Lucky Strike Lanes disco bowling alley across the street. Fun, fun, fun!

We were then able to meet Our Most Illustrious Woodchuck right on time and repair to our discussions. We entered our meeting facility where we found "the 57'8" ft. long wood topped bar is outlined in glass and underlit with soft white lighting. Upon entering, guests are met with an entire wall of backlit Maker's Mark bottles and a spectacular 'wall of fire'. At the request of Maker's Mark management, bourbons from each of Kentucky's distilleries are showcased." Woodchuck said that Squirrel would be most favorably impressed with the two pages of bourbon selections on the menu, which ranged up to $50 a shot for the very rarest. We all, however, restrained ourselves admirably since we had serious business to attend to.
As noted on WC's blog. the summit marked the appearance of the latest traveling penguin technology: the Port-a-Flock. This collection of diminutive but deadly warriors can be carried conveniently in one's pocket in a handy zippered case. Since penguins are such social creatures, TR invented them to keep him company on longer trips.

He also taught them the manly skills of hand-to-hand combat and bidding on Priceline.com. Perfect for undercover work and infiltrating behind enemy lines, here they were deployed as the Royal Penguin Guard to maintain security during the summit. Good thing, too. There were some pretty suspicious characters lurking about. Here, the guards confront one of the shadier-looking types.

Happily, it turned out to be only one of the local paparazzi trying to get scoop-photos of the assembled celebrities and despots.

The conference was rounded out by a very nice dinner of bourbon sirloin and veal ossobuco. A tyrannical time was has by all!


  1. God, the next time you try to go through airport security I don't want to be anyplace around. I can just see the headline that the secret police are now on the lookout for pocket flocks!


  2. 2 pages of Bourbon! Oh the travesty of missing the summit. I may have to summarily fall upon my sword, just like the ancient samauri. Wait a sec, I don't have a sword? I can't even off myself properly. I guess I'm left with drowning in a fermentation tank.

    I've seen that papparazo before, he is a shady character.

  3. We heard about the job he suckered you into.

    Something about a TR7 and 400+ horsepower.

    And Go Purple!

    The rest is kind of blur!


  4. we will be on the lookout for that shady character least he try and enter our state!

  5. the pocket flock would come in handy at school


  6. wait, wait! where is Squirrel? You traveled without him! You're a sad lot.

  7. At least one of the 'Chucklettes is one my side. And she's the one with the sword...

    Wait, Purple bad, Crimson good..

  8. Hmmm... it would appear the parental controls have been taken off the browser as well. Welcome back Woodchicks!

  9. removed parental controls from everything - let them raise themselves, or find wolves interested in dealing with them {evil cackle}

  10. Hey! Romulus and Remus did real good by the wolves! Don't knock it.

  11. I keep smiling at the thought of what the security people think when you come through with a bunch of baby penguins. You know they are talking about you over their lunch break. :)

  12. Wonderful company, very good food and drinks.....There are days where travel has it's advantages....

    but, nothing like the steak, potatoes, and Gluten free beer I had at home tonight, dear.

  13. Ooooooo!!! He likes us, he really likes us!!!
