Lamont and Dude Discourse on Wealth

“Hey Lamont, you got a few bucks?”

“Yes. And I’m grateful for them. They’re useful in this superficial world where one’s life is spent toiling for the legal tender. Why?”

“I, uh, I…”

“You’re broke.”

“Yeah. Again. I miss the old days.”

“Which ones?”

“The ones where we didn’t need money to live. Remember when you were a salmon and I was a bear?”

“Vaguely. Remember when you were an oak tree and I was an oak tree?”

“Remember when we were velociraptors?”

“Remember when you were a pile of dead meat and I was a carrion-eating giant flying scavenger?”

“No, I don’t remember that one.”

“Dead things tell no tales.”

“You’re proud of that? You didn’t even do the kill if all you were was a giant carrion-eating flying scavenger!”

“The kill isn’t everything, Dude. If you understood that, you wouldn’t always need to hit me up for money. Here’s twenty bucks.”

Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a few years ago. They have the uncanny ability to remember many of their past incarnations. This gives them a unique perspective on life the universe and everything.

  1. “a giant carrion-eating flying scavenger?”, they still exist today, under other names I believe. Oh love those two, looking forward to the TV show.
