Description

It was a dark and stormy night, no, scratch that. I'm prevaricating again. There wasn't a cloud to be spied as I piloted my aerostat, the Eris, through the early morning sky over Tiblisi. The Stanhope Redoubtable Steam Engine thrummed away pleasantly at the aft of the cabin providing musical accompaniment for my little expedition.

Now this wasn't one of my Radom jaunts in search of delicious Georgian pastries, but a bona fine mission. It was an activity which might normally seem a bit too close to work for retiring fellow such as I. But this time I was no to be waylaid by entropy. You see, my colleague, Professor Sombra had stolen my first dirigible, the Valiant Swordfish and this could not stand! It's one thing to send me a box of face eating Patagonian death wasps on my birthday, but wholly another to make of with another fellow's aerial transport.

As I stood at the wheel, I felt a tug at my sleeve. Looking around I noticed that a strange creature was making short work of the material with a set of rather gnashy looking interlocking fangs. It was a new species of bloater! And it had flown in through an open porthole just to destroy my seersucker frock!

It was as beautiful as it was angrily industrious. Frilly rose colored membranes line it's dorsal spines and fins and it's eyes were a twinkling blue. I would have been more appreciative if it wasn't trying to sever my forearm.
Thinking quickly, I doffed my frock and sent it, bitey bloater and all, tumbling into one of the empty specimen crates that I always take with me on aetheric jaunts.

Realizing that it had been outwitted, it settled in and began reducing my frock coat to dust.

Regrettable that. Bitey, bloaty organisms seem to have little appreciation for the sanctity of searsucker, or human flesh for that matter.

But they do make excellent and interesting pets if kept at arms length...and possibly behind thick glass or iron. And one could be yours for a nominal fee!
