Hohum the Hohum
On the banks of a lake there is a hole, and in this
hole there lives a hohum.
hohums bear a marked similarity to water rats but are, let me assure
you, completely different. For one thing they walk around on their
hind legs, and for another they speak a beautiful language which
sounds very much like ancient Greek, but not quite.
Anyway, this particular hohum is a very hole-proud
hohum (some would say neurotic, but then people can be cruel) who
has the great misfortune of being named after his species: Hohum
This, as you may imagine, caused him a certain amount
of grief during his school days, and is the reason why he has such
a troubled relationship with his mother.
The oddness of his name notwithstanding, Hohum likes
to think of himself as a sociable creature, who would, if other
people weren't so terribly messy, have a lot of friends ...
