The Gremlin

Does anyone remember this adorable little guy from the old Bugs Bunny cartoons?


Maybe this will help refresh your memories:


My friends, he is a gremlin. Wikipedia describes him thusly:

Gremlins are mischevious, mechanically oriented, and responsible for sabotage (particulary of aircraft).

Gremlins are used to explain otherwise inexplicable accidents.

Gremlins are portrayed as being equal opportunity tricksters, taking no sides in conflict and acting out their mischief out of their own self-interests.

Are you seeing it yet?


How 'bout now?

Or (my personal favorite) now?

'RC' was a placeholder name I came up with by default for my younger son, based on his penchant for hurling everything with which he came in contact, with the speed of a Roger Clemens fast ball.

After nearly two years of creative destruction that's expanded far beyond throwing, I have finally found a name which truly fits his mischeviousness, his cleverness, his laughability, his 'grem-lin-ity.'

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, my second born, my beloved, Gremlin:

Whoops! I mean, my Gremlin:

Funny, he looks a lot like my little gremlin from behind - especially with the Darth Vader cape.

I'll have to remember that - gremlinity. I think you've just coined a word.

Maybe he thought the gummy bears were his vitamins? maybe? Didn't think so.
