"So I ate that mushroom, fly and all GULP just like that without even chewing. I could feel the fly buzzing all the way down. Mmmmm, fly."

"Then I ☽ met a mysterious ☍ man on ♌ the road, ☻ dressed in 〄 black and ☠ walking a ☢☡♽ white dog. ⚡ He seemed truly ethereal, but I know what I saw. No 〒 really, ✴ I'm ✣ seramous 〠check ❦ out ☥ the picture.✺"

Chip Ahoy ate that mushroom....

This could seriously upset Crack unless a "it's a joke" disclaimer is posted with it.

Why o why did you swallow the fly?

Perhaps you'll die...?

Whoa, man, what happened to all the pretty colors?

I bet Chip Ahoy is a big Ed Gorey fan.

On second thought, with all the Egyptian hieroglyphs in the narrative, this may not be a joke.

RE: Another Person Walking
In the hope of reducing the subject to trivia
(if it's not there already)

The following lines were stimulated by the account of one of the Antarctic expeditions (I forget which, but I think one of Shackleton's): it was related that the party of explorers, at the extremity of their strength, had the constant delusion that there was one more member than could actually be counted.
"I know that during that long and racking march of thirty-six hours over the unnamed mountains and glaciers of South Georgia, it seemed to me often that we were four, not three."
Ernest Shackleton, South; reprinted in Roland Huntford,

"Who is the third who walks always beside you?
When I count, there are only you and I together
But when I look ahead up the white road
There is always another one walking beside you
Gliding wrapt in a brown mantle, hooded
I do not know whether a man or a woman
- But who is that on the other side of you?"

(Considerately more bleak than the passage in LUKE 24-
and not humorous at all, as was the following statement from the mid-20th Century third man:
"In Italy, for 30 years under the Borgias, they had warfare, murder and bloodshed, but they produced Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, and the Renaissance. In Switzerland they have brotherly love. They had 500 years of democracy and peace, and what did that produce? - The cuckoo clock! ")

This really evokes (for me) the Forest Spirit in Hayao Miyazaki's Spirited Away.
