Every now and again I do something profoundly silly, because A) I can, and B) man cannot live on concrete and nudes alone. In this case, inspired by those many humorless individuals who know exactly what a dragon looks like and see fit to inform me that my version is wrong, I decided that I, too, know exactly what dragons are like, and this is it.Dragons, as everyone knows, are the descendants of blind cave worms, and as such as both blind and very moist. To keep from losing all their moisture to evaporation, and to keep from massive sunburn, they coat themselves in strips of newspaper damped down with dragon spit, which forms a hardened paper-maiche’ shell. (This, of course, explains the frequent herds of dragons lurking around the edges of recycling plants.) Being blind, they get around with the aid of Seeing Eye Lungfish, a species of giant mudskipper bred for both sheepdog-like loyalty and firm white meat, or if the journey goes too far from water, small plastic canes. Since the fragile membranes of wings would take massive sunburn (leading to death by shock) aboveground, dragons voluntarily amputate their wings before leaving home. As the dragon surgeons are blind too, the loss of life to patients, operating assistants, and helper lungfish during said operations is enormous. (Okay, okay, the description’s better than the art…) Annnyway, this is what I say dragons are like, and unless you have photos to say otherwise, I maintain mine’s just as valid as the next crackpot’s. Thank you.The frog is solely an artistic vanity, but since I think he pretty much makes the picture, what can ya do? - Ursula Vernon
