Top SeKrit Public Announcement

Pandora and coyote are pleased to announce that they are ramping up an Ultra Cosmic Top SeKrit Project, final results of which will be released in due time. It will be highly secret and scientific, involving ummm, really science-y secret things.

Do not try to find out what we're up to, or you will face consequences. B-a-a-a-a-d ones.

Pandora's sprightly dimples camouflage extensive international training in the dark arts of elocution instruction, which have equipped her with an infinite number of ruthlessly exotic ways to stun, torture, maim and/or kill those who would try to subvert our purpose.

Coyote’s semi-mythical snout camouflages an extensive set of real pointy chompers, and he owns cookbooks full of exotic cat recipes that would make a Tartar blanch. Oh. And millennia of experience have made him kinda sneaky about the bite-and-run thing.

If, in the course of your daily rounds you accidentally spot us doing Ultra Cosmic Top SeKrit Stuff, look away. Leave quickly. Go someplace else. Hide. Tell no one. If you do tell someone -- or worse yet, if you actually try to follow us or question us on this matter, we absolutely cannot be held responsible for what accidentally happens to you. But it will be b-a-a-a-a-d... and we'll really enjoy doing it.

Thank you. You may now commence floating the usual wild and groundless speculations.

Well I don't know what you're up to, but it's pretty clear there's a sheep involved.

coyote said...

Heaven forfend! Get your mind outta the mint sauce...

Woodsy said...

So Coyote, you are living up to your native name, Trickster.

Pandora, beware, you sweet innocent one, of this canis latrans!

coyote said...

That darned Wikipedia. Telling all my secrets...

XUP said...

When you tell everyone about the existence of an Ultra Cosmic Top SeKrit thing & taunt them into guessing, you've already made it less secret.

coyote said...

What's your point, o literal-minded one?

Pandora said...

As an innocent sprite (with a cute dimple, apparently!) I must protest. I don't know what any of you are talking about! Nothing to see here...

pandora said...

It IS true, btw, that elocution is a dark, dark art. So do beware.

Woodsy said...

Pandora, remember, I own THE elocution bible, I am safe.

So, I am snooping!

Who's afraid of the big bad Coyote... Tra la la la la...

XUP said...

coyote - we prefer the term "prosaic" -- literal-minded is a tad pejorative.Thank you.

Harmony said...

My dear, did you mention recipes involving cats? Yum!
And coyote...I think I know the "secret" between you and Pandora, you naughty, naughty, dog.

Pandora said...

Yes, darling Woodsy, I believe you should also festoon your house with old typewriter keys, that helps fend us elocutionists off as well. You may already know someone whose house is festooned with typewriter keys... I don't quite know who... there must be somebody...

Harmony, it's always lovely to hear your sweet voice. Air kisses!

XUP, thank you for trying, but Coyote has always been weak on tradecraft.

Coyote and Pandora, is the secret that one of you is pregnant? Or are you both knitters also?

coyote said...

Mister Short Dude, sir, with all due respect - you conclude how much I think is due - I don't recall it being my (ahem) tradecraft that got me totally busted...

And we might be tatting new underwear for Duncan for next season... we might. Or not.

Pandora said...

It's no secret that I'm knot a knitter... I only strive to become one. I promised The Chair a fabulous gift recently, which I *am* working on. Well, it's in the planning stages. I may need to seek some help from Ottawa's warm and wooly knitting community.

zoom said...

Sooooo......?? We've been pretty patient out here, waiting for the SeKrit to be revealed.

As a matter of fact we've been patient about many things lately - the SeKrit, the RNDP, Bakelite, Foxy, The Autonomous Eye, Third Elf.

Maybe there should be some kind of schedule of upcoming revelations?

coyote said...

Hey, Zoom! Patience is a virtue, hmmmmm?? And who are those last three names? They have no ties to this mindscape.

But to update, Pandora and I were discussing, ummm, things this very afternoon. The Ultra Cosmic Top SeKrit Project is on track, we're just ironing out some wrinkles in the intellectual origami... and fending off the usual plethora of distracting left-field questions from the ESIs.

You might consider not holding your breath, though. Well-done paradigms take time. We don't want to end up with something half-baked...

4th Dwarf said...

Zoom, seriously, don't hold your breath. The day after he posted about the top sekrit project, several of us asked the pooch when we'd be learning more. "It'll be months," he said.

But it won't be months before the next installment of the RNDP Quest appears. If blogspot's advance posting system works, it will appear at 2:26pm, May 14.

coyote said...

See what I mean about a plethora of distracting left-field questions? I told 'em all that to get some peace and quiet for, ummmm, scientific observation...
