Two Stoopid Stories by Barry Rodges
With a title like that, how much can you possibly criticize this? Heâ€™s right, these are two stupid stories. The first is a hazy, indistinct tale of two creatures in the clouds having a brief conversation. Yeah, thereâ€™s a bit more to it, but why ruin it? The second story is about a caterpillar and a robot wandering around until the caterpillar eats something it shouldnâ€™t, causing a creature that intensely desires meat to pop out and grow some teats of its own. Yes, it really does make just as much sense as it seems. Luckily, Barry nailed down the ability to tell stories that make little or no sense and keep them funny years ago, so Iâ€™d have to say that this is another success. Maybe I donâ€™t like it as much as some of his other books, but from what Iâ€™ve been able to tell so far you really canâ€™t go wrong with any of his stuff.
