You’re a Yellow-Bellied Marmot

A Conversation

“You’re yella’.”
“I’m not yellow. I just don’t want to fight you.”
“Yella’, yella’, yella'”
“I’m just going to ignore you.”
“Like you could, you yellow-bellied marmot.”
“I saw one of those once.”
“What?”
“A yellow-bellied marmot. Just standing there on a rock.”
“Probably looked a lot like you.”
“Not really.”
“All pudgy-faced and full of fear.”
“Actually, it yawned.”
“You probably bored it with your pudgy face.”
“I think it had better things to do.”
“Like what?”

Smack!

“Looking for better company.”
