Have You Seen Binky?
Lost? Kidnapped? Abducted by aliens? No one at Wombania knows what happened to Binky. Although he's a smart Wombie and can usually take care of himself, we're still worried about his recent disappearance. The following article appeared in the local paper a couple of weeks ago.
Wombie MissingThe Wombie Weekly
(WP) Binky, the rocket-loving Wombie who lives in Forestdale with Chris Land and the rest of the Wombie gang, hasn't been seen or heard from in over 18 days.
He was last seen on the morning of the 13th, piloting his experimental WX-6 rocket into the stratosphere. According to Chris, "It was a picture-perfect launch. The rocket blasted off without a hitch. Although it did singe my rhododendrons."
Numerous things could have gone wrong, but no one really knows for certain what happened due to the fact there's been no radio contact with the Wombie astronaut (Wombanaut) since liftoff.
There has been some speculation that Binky, being rather short and fuzzy, and wearing a full space suit at the time, might have been misidentified as an alien invader and captured by a nefarious government agency.
All nefarious government agencies contacted by this newspaper denied any involvement, however.
"He was supposed to return that evening," a distraught Twink said. "I waited up all night for him!"
Binky, who has been known to go off on extended scientific expeditions without informing anyone, has never been missing this long before.
Winky refused to speculate on what may have happened to his brother, although he did remark "I sure hope he packed enough Wine Gums."
