“Pet Shop”

Xorn and Klaxa went into a pet shop to get a new pet. Their previous pet had recently died and they missed his company. Xorn surveyed the selection.

“You want one with same markings?

“No,” Klaxa said wistfully. “He seemed so delicate. Let’s get a different breed.”

The pet shop owner approached them graciously. “Have you made your choice?

“I think we’ll go for the female with the brown markings and green eyes.”

“Good.” The owner opened the cage.

“These aren’t from a pet mill where they clone a popular breed till they’re too feeble to live, are they? The last one we had didn’t last very long. ”

“No. These are fresh abductions from Earth.”
