Of Eeyore and Donkey

Here is an authentic chronicle of the words that got exchanged, between
Eeyore (from Winnie the Pooh) and Donkey (from Shrek), when
they met recently.

Donkey on the return from the Kingdom of Far Far Away decided to
take a detour and visit his friend of yesteryears Eeyore in the 100
Aker Woods. He finds Eeyore at his gloomy best ...

D: Hey Eeeyoreee ... how ya doing buddy, and how is your tail doing ?
I've been having the most smashing adventures with Shrek .... you
remember Shrek - you remember Shrek? That big fat ugly ogre who is
like an onion. That's the layered intellectual interpretation. He
really is like a cupcake, I just looove cupcakes ! And then ....

Eeyore looks at Donkey, his wide droopy eyes trying to make sense of
all he sees.

E: Adventure? Oh I see ... an Expotition ... Have you seen my tail?

D: Lost it again, did you? Let me tell you a secret ... there are
these guys at a place called HP labs ... I gave them a proper piece
of my mind when my mane suddenly disappeared one day. And they grew
it back! Maybe you could ask them to fix it. Fix it with gum this

E: Oh, well. Someone must have taken it. How Like Them.

D: (Thoughtfully) That's deep Eeyore ... that's really deep ...

Eeyore was thinking "Why?", and then "Wherefore" and sometime later he
thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and then he didn't quite know what he
was thinking about. He stood by the side of the stream and looked at
himself in the water.

E: Pathetic, That's what it is. Pathetic.

He turned and walked slowly down the stream for twenty yards, splashed
across it, and walked slowly back on the other side. Then he looked at
himself in the water again.

E: As I thought, No better from this side.

D: Chin up - Noble steed! We will find it, after all if one can find a
princess and a puss in boots and a dragon (Oh I miss her), one can
find a tail ! I am the official sidekick .. guy .. here .. I say we
will find it! You got that I don't care what nobody thinks of me
thing ... I like that .. I respect that and so I'll help you.

I know .. it will be in the highest room, in the tallest tower.

You hang on Eeyore ... I'll handle the tail ... Oh I'll find that
tail .. I'll whip its butt too .. It won't know which way to go !

E: Good night, Donkey. If it is a good night. Which I doubt.

And as Eeyore turned to get into his house at Pooh Corner, there was
his tail ... hanging from his back. Its was curled up in a tight bun
.. so that Eeyore could not see it. Donkey sees the tail ...

D: You know what I think ... I think this whole tail thing is to keep
somebody out. Are you hiding something? Aaaw its not another of
those onion things. Why dont you want to talk about it? Why are you
blocking? Who are you tryin to keep out Eeyore, just tell me, who?

E: Oh, well, Thanks for noticin' it.

D: You cant do this to me Eeyore .. I am too young to be sad, ..and worried (sniff) !

E: We can't all, and some of us don't. That's all there is to it.

D: Can't all what?

E: Gaiety. Song-and-dance. Here we go round the mulberry bush.

D: I think I need a hug.

E: Don't blame me if it starts raining now.

  1. this was brilliant!!and as for the post on black.....hmmm....we need to talk!!:p

  2. @Khushee - Glad you liked it.

    @Rapunzel - Thanks for the bouquets! and you sure can link my blog and as for the talk ... anytime you feel like it :).

  3. Hey Pixie, good to hav you back.

    Many of the dialogues (or something similar) can be found in the original Winnie the Pooh books and Shrek Movies. Ofcourse the characters and the places are not my creations. Only the composition is mine. And I did write it ... or rather typed it - with my very own set of fingers!

    The only thing is "My spelling is Wobbly. It's good spelling, but it Wobbles, and the letters get in the wrong places."


  4. Can I make a suggestion for something you might want to write? How about Eeyore and Donkey do Vincent Vega and Jules Winnfield?

    Just the introduction scene with the conversation about the burgers.

    I've always wanted to write Homer and Marge Simpson doing the Hunny Bunny and Pumpkin conversation. Or Mulder and Scully doing it. Or better yet, Hunny Bunny and Pumpkin doing a Mulder and SCully conversation.

    OK just shoot me.
