The M Who Came To Dinner

a cartoon

Man (standing near a doorway): I've invited a friend over to have a little dinner. And here it is, the letter ĎMí!

(A capital M enters and gazes into the room.)

See this letter ĎMí? It sounds like this-

M: Mmmm! Mmmmmm, mmmmmmm!

Man: Right, címere and see this table.

(We see a long table loaded with all kinds of food and drink.)

M: Mmm! Mmmmmm, mmmmmm!

Man: Go ahead. Dig right in. Make yourself at home.

M (who is already on the table): Mmmm, marvelous! Mmmm, meat!

(Gulps down the whole slab and drinks a full glass of wine.)

Mmmm, marshmallows!

(Tosses them down, one after the other.)

Mmmm, munch!

(Eats up another piece of meat.)

Mmmmmmm! Mmmm, mmmmm! Magnificent!

(Man is staring openmouthed as M devours one thing after another.)

M: Mmmmm, milk!

(Downs a whole glassful.)

Mmmmm, melon!

(Gobbles it up and keeps noshing down until every dish is empty.)

Mmmmm, mmmm, mmmmm!

Man: I donít believe this! I say, you're just about the greediest, rudest letter I ever saw! You ate up everything!

M: Mmmmm, mmmmm, mmmmmmmm! (Hops down from table.)

Man: I'm telling you, never invite an M over to your house for dinner!

(M kisses him, but he walks off-screen.)

No, don't try to make up with me. Next time, I'll invite a ... a J, or a polite Q. But not another M!

(M starts munching until nothing is left on the screen, leaving it dark.)
