Speedcat Hollydale

It's a brand new year and it's cold outside. Speedcat Hollydale is contemplating the biggest challenge of his life. He's going to attempt to scale the Sears Tower with suction cups on his hands and feet, while dressed as Elvis in the hopes of jumping from the top and successfully deploying his not so colorful rappelling gear.

He stops at one office window and sees something strange. Three hooligans dressed in tie dye playing bongo drums and drinking beer and yelling profane language and watching an episode of "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire." They seem to be struggling with the question Meridith asks, "Who was Lillibet Monserrat? They all look quizzically at each other and Simon says, "wait wasn't she just featured on America's Most Wanted?

And now for our next feature, which is Hillbilly Willy in his long johns going down to the creek singing Hey. His favorite number from Creedance Clearwater Revival, which just happens to be "Hey Tonight". Moving right along one of the three hooligans notices Speedcat and yells, "What have you been up to?" and Speedcat says, Nut 'N Honey! Hey that'd be a great name for something like a cereal. The hooligan is momentarily distracted by Speedcat's brilliance. Speedcat seizes the moment and takes the first flight to Norway to visit his Viking friend. He needs to escape, get new inspirations and experience the best spa in the world.

He also need to make some Old Nordic wine that his great-great-great-great-great-Viking cousin "Vinny the Viking" passed down from ancestor to ancestor, until finally the recipe was that of CAKE! Of course there cannot be a story without a nice big cake. as they sat down to enjoy it something amazing happened. It was a massive ship coming down the fiord and headed for a crash into the cake making shack. Speedcat and Renny dived into the water, and Sandee was there with a rescue boat. AMAZING TIMING!

The cake was saved, and Empress Bee, ManOverBoard, RennyBA, DrillerAA09, Finding Pam, CrAzY Working Mom, Buggys, Sandy B, Mike Golch, Hillbilly Willy, Ann, Grace, Jeff B, Rajagopalan, Michele, Louis, Don, and Who Woulda Thunkit all had a gala lute fisk bash in the Sears Tower all wearing suction cup suits! Then a mysterious guest arrived, it was Arv but he was not alone. The ghost of old Viking king William the Conqueror had followed him to the party, but the Ghost-busters were right behind the old King fixing to zap him, and zap him they did.

It was then that Speedcat woke up in a sweat. Was this a dream? It seemed so very real. It was then that Speedcat realized that he'd had anchovies on his pizza. That surely was the reason for this weird dream. The really strange thing is there are cake crumbs all over the bed.
