Hammy Hamster vs. Sammy Sumo

Hammy Hamster was minding his own business on his lined hamster wheel when his agent called.


"Good news, Hammy," she said. "Your video is on Amazon. You're famous!"




Hammy couldn't believe it. He was so much better than all the other hamsters now.

He wore movie star glasses . . .



He nibbled chocolates . . .



Mostly, he napped while waiting for Oprah to call . . .



Until . . .

Sammy Sumo came to town. Sammy wanted to be a star, too!



"Sorry," Hammy said. "This town isn't big enough for both of us. Go make your own video!"

Sammy didn't take kindly to those words. He pushed his stomach out -- oh, nevermind -- his stomach was already pushed out -- and he bellowed, "Them's fightin' words, Hamster!"

Sammy jumped on Hammy. "Oomph!"



He pounded Hammy. "Ouch!"



Hammy needed to do something quickly.

"I've got to get in shape!"

So he lifted weight . . .



. . . until he was strong enough to fight back. "Whomp!"



Come on, Hammy and Sammy! Can't we all just get along?



APPARENTLY NOT . . .



Uh-oh! Was Hammy doomed?

He had no choice but to use his secret, super power -- something so secret it was to be used only in case of dire emergency -- HAMSTER FARTS!



It worked!

Will Sammy Sumo ever wake? Will Hammy Hamster triumph and return to his life of big-headed leisure? Or will Sammy Sumo get up and take over this town?

YOU DECIDE!!!

Hammy wins! Sammy diets and becomes the new spokesperson for Arby's--"I ate one junior RB each day . . ."

Hammy all the way, anyone who mistreats love like that just can't win!

Tough call. But I think I'm going to go with Sammy on this one. He might be getting my sympathy vote for being new to town...or that my stomach is starting to resemble his.

Sorry Hammy.

Hamster power! I vote for Hammy!

Tina said...

I'm sorry, what was the question? I was distracted by the chocolate bar...Ah, right. Hammy wins, but only after learning that hamster farts are not be used on others. And Sammy learns...how to steal chocolate and smuggle it to NY. Oh, and that violence isn't the answer.

Maggie said...

Gotta go with Hammy. I wouldn't want a farting, PO'd hamster mad at me.

Christina said...

Fortunately, the swelling to Hammy's head subsides and a somewhat chastened hamster triumphs. Sammy, however, seeks consolation in chocolate and his tummy continues to grow.

Hammy delivers Sammy the final Bammy at which point Sammy runs home crying to his Mammy! (Jammy)

It's a tie. Then they join forces and start the WWHWF. World Wide Hamster Wrestling Federation.

JW said...

Of course, it's Hammy all the way! Everyone knows the hamster always squeaks by to win.

Although in real life, this is rarely the case, but literarily speaking, when two protagonists display qualities both unbecoming, neither one should be a victor. This is the part of the story where you enter a deus ex machina in the form of a third surprise character who displays the qualities of fair-play, humility, and selflessness who gets the reward instead.

Hammy wins! Any hamster that can sing like that gets my vote. And the way he moves...his dynamic personality...his way with people...he's got everything I look for in a friend. If Hammy comes to town, let me know, I want his autograph.

Okay. I'm just going to say it. Your comments are way funnier than the actual post. You clever, clever people! Stay tuned to see what happens with Hammy and Sammy!
