The Prophecy is True!

And as it was foretold in the ancient cave drawings, so it shall come to pass: When a five-petaled flower grows on the mountaintop, a panda will play basketball. Then, after a period of great jumble and confusion, the mighty archer Pflognostrates shall pierce a sacred turnip, heralding the return of the astral traveler Argbarth nyk-Fatoom (meaning “the one who stares”), harbinger of the Middle Times.

Nice shot, Phloggy, I’ll take over from here.

    (a) How on earth did this happen?
    (b) How does NTMTOM come up with this stuff?

      I found it on The Book of Faces.

      (Sounds way more mystical and prophecy-ish than “facebook,” doesn’t it?)

      The incredible mind of NTMTOM. He amazes and entertains us on a daily basis.

    I’m constantly scratching my head over Mike’s ability to come up with such immortal words as “the mighty archer Pflognostrates shall pierce a sacred turnip.” Seriously, where does it come from? And can we clone him so we have him entertaining the world forever?

    Oh, and the hamster panther is adorable! (Hey, if we can have hamster dogs, I figure a kitty is a hamster compared to a full-sized panther, right?)

    Shaking my head, just shaking my head. I bow to the master and I don’t know how NTMTOM manages to keep one-upping himself but he does. This is a masterpiece. Besides all that, can the astral voyager deliver her/himself to my house? I’ll gladly be their devoted high priestess/slave.

    This gets a “CLASSIC” stamp from me!

    Oh Mystic NTMTOM! LOL!

    It’s twoo, it’s all twoo! writ as plain as the schnozzola on your foosh (Irish for face, at least in my family). Especially the sacred turnip – that clinches it.

    I expected Argbarth to be taller. Disappointed! 😀

        BTVS for the win! I reference it on a daily basis but nobody ever knows what I’m talking about.

          Don’t you hate that? You think you’re being all witty and…thud…lead balloon.

          • Murray C. May 4, 2016 / 1:06 pm

            I’m afraid that many of these references go over my head. I’m not a popular culture person, more of a 19th C. sort of person, up to the 40’s. And I hate to ask for explanations because there’s not much worse than having to explain a joke. So I apologize for my “breed” who let your wonderful jokes fall heavily to the ground – obviously it’s us! not you.

    This is the ONLY time I have ever looked at graffiti and liked it. In fact, I think if we let 2nd and 3rd graders “decorate” all abandoned buildings/unwanted structures, the world would be a better place.

    • Ms Can Opener May 2, 2016 / 10:43 pm

      I also feel strongly about graffiti. However, I did like the composition of the picture itself – the diagonal lines, the off-center kitty, etc. Of course, NONTOM’s explanation helped me understand the deeper meaning.

    He will come in one of the pre-chosen forms. During the rectification of the Vuldrini, the traveler came as a large and moving Torg! Then, during the third reconciliation of the last of the McKetrick supplicants, they chose a new form for him: that of a giant Slor! Many Shuvs and Zuuls knew what it was to be roasted in the depths of the Slor that day, I can tell you!

    It’s from the Ghostbuster movie, the real one, not the crapy remake! Mike’s story made me think of it.

    Sometimes here, I wish I could vote more than once. This would be one of those times!! Good work NTMTOM!!!

    • Murray C. May 3, 2016 / 9:16 am

      I just tried. Sigh, no dice.

      • debg May 3, 2016 / 10:19 am

        *cough* use different computers *cough*

        • Murray C. May 3, 2016 / 12:23 pm

          A cunning plan!

        • Mariana Paes May 3, 2016 / 12:37 pm

          Computer and phone/tablet works too.. or so I’ve heard..

          • Murray May 3, 2016 / 1:07 pm

            I believe you’re on to something!😉

          • Faye May 4, 2016 / 6:22 am

            Shhh. Do(n’t) tell. 😉
