From Now On, I Keep Some Things To Myself

Just today I said to myself, "You know, there just aren't enough good Gilgamesh jokes out there." Hardly were those words out when a thunderous voice bellowed, "THAT'S BECAUSE YOU'RE NOT LOOKING IN THE RIGHT PLACE, ESTHER." A ferocious wind blew my hair back, scattered my tchotchkes and knocked the pictures off my wall. Nuts. That's the last time I complain about Gilgamesh aloud. I don't see the need to wake the ancients with my bitching.

One thing I've never understood about Gilgamesh is why he was always chasing after those poor Smurfs. I mean, at times it seemed he wanted to eat them, but then other times he'd just keep them in cages for days on end. Silly Gilgamesh.

Gilgamesh chased the smurfs because he wanted their secrets. He never wanted to eat them. You can't eat a smurf; they're all cartilage and dye. So Gilgamesh wasn't "silly." Unlearned, perhaps, but not "silly."

Maybe you were thinking of Snorks and their run-ins with Grendel.

I, myself, have found that Gilgamesh seems to have quite the agenda against tchotchkes. Best to be careful and stick with crocheted doilies for home decoration.
