HOST: Cryptid Critter Crawl presents, Pegasus Nest
INSPECTOR: Mmmhmm. Yep. (shifting sounds) Ohhh, yeah, mmmm… (Shifting sounds). Yep, yep yep yep yep. (shifting sounds. Sounds of patting off hands against each other) Just about what I suspected.
HCR REP So… What’s the diagnosis?
INSPECTOR And whom might you be?
HCR REP Charlie. Charlie Spectacles. I’m the HCR Rep. Human Cryptid Relation.
INSPECTOR Charlie, you’ve uh… well… you’ve got yourself a pegasus infestation.
HCR REP You don’t say.
INSPECTOR Oh… no no no no. I did. That’s exactly what I said. I’ve been inspecting buildings for most my life. And that nest up there, that’s pure pegasus.
HCR REP Really?
INSPECTOR Bags of oats.Lots of hay. Colorful feathers of all sorts. A smattering of cumulous clouds - and those rainbow clumps there, that’s pegasus droppings.
HCR REP Pegasus droppings?
INSPECTOR Pega-poop! Mega pega-poop by the look of it. Pretty strong stuff. It uh… smells, absolutely wonderful. Like pep-R-mint. Number one ingredient in mouthwash is Pega-poop. Quite a harvest up there. Good for the bones too. Heck of a pest them pegasus, heck of a pest.
HCR REP Huh… Will they harm the building structure?
INSPECTOR Oh, no no no no. Pegasus fly. Hollow bones. Light as stardust. — IN fact, the aqueducts - Roman aqueducts - had a bad BAAAD pegasus infestation. Flying horses, dancing, prancin’, all over, didn’t harm them aqueducts one bit. Wasn’t until they got rid of those pesky pegasus that invaders came and knocked em all down.
HCR REP Really?
INSPECTOR Oh yeah. Nothing, not nobody would want to knock down the home of something that beautiful. Gorgeous creatures them Pegasus. Friendly too. Givin’ pega-kisses all the time, consensually mind you. It makes the kiddos laugh and feel wonderful. Heck of a pest that Pegasus. Heck of a pest. Bad infestation you got up there too.
HCR REP Do we?
INSPECTOR Yep, yep yep yep yep yep. Now I can get rid of em’ for you… it’s gonna take some bullying though.
HCR REP Bullying? No! No. Not needed. Pegasus are welcome here.
INSPECTOR Pegasus? Welcomed? Now I’ve heard everything. You’ve got an infestation for crying out loud.
REP If they don’t hurt the building and they’re beautiful and nice and give consensual kisses… Maybe… a pegasus infestation isn’t such a bad thing?
INSPECTOR An infestation is an infestation… And with an infestation, you exterminate, via very very insensitive bullying.
REP What if instead of calling it a pegasus “infestation”, we, maybe call it, a pegasus community?
INSPECTOR Well i do believe that,... uh… mmmm… in that case I would have to assume that… iya…. Well… with that in mind… huh. I do believe I’ve been living lie.
REP Oh. Are you okay?
INSPECTOR Yeah, yeah yeah, I just… hmmm... I guess I oughtta get right with myself.
HCR REP Well, I am the Human Cryptid Relations Representative. It’s my job to help you with that.
HCR REP Of course. How bout we get started with a little…
(Sound of Ream of Paper flipping through pages and flopping down)
HCR REP ... paperwork.
INSPECTOR Oh my.
HOST Yes. The pegasus are welcome at the Children’sMuseum of Pittsburgh. We strive to see the value in all things, opening our doors, and our roof, to each and every community we can, especially, the pegasus.
