Once the Hydra noticed its heads were growing smaller and disappearing one after another.
Once a killer smarm invaded an average home in an average neighborhood.
Once a mantis excelled at conducting grief-and-victim interviews.
Once a pit bull refused to go for the throat of every other dog around.
Once a film crew set out to document the march of the pundits.
Once a pushmi-pullyu appeared as a guest on public television.
Once the nation's rumor mills came very close to violating EPA guidelines.
Once a bevy of little twittering birds sat on a wire.
