Submit your pet to the Pet Spotlight!
In Neopia, we always see things about the teenager pets, the baby pets, and the adult pets with families. Then there are the demon pets that have lived for thousands of years. These pets roam the streets, the woods, the beaches, and everyone knows and respects them.
Llasper: But NONE of you little sprouts respect yer elders!
Have you ever noticed the lack of old pets? Feeble old senile dudes who need a cane to walk and like to remember the good ol' days?
Llasper: You've got no respect! None at all! Back in my day kids respected those smarter than them! *waves his cane in the air*
Is it just that Neopians think that these old guys are behind recent times? That they just aren't smart? Well, that is a bit true, but that's not really the point, now is it? Just 'cause old neopets tend to be deaf and dumb and annoying doesn't mean they shouldn't be loved too!
Llasper: And reSPECTed. Hear that? Respect me!
Sure, they may ramble a lot, talk about nothing for hours on end. . .
Llasper: I remember back in the spring of '56, we had 15 feet of snow on the ground! And I had to walk through it every day just to get a newspaper and a warm cup of coffee. . .
You may not care what they say, it may seem a tad bit pointless. . .
Llasper: . . . and then one day the sun came out, and the temperature rose to over 70 degrees! All the snow started melting at once. . .
Or a LOT pointless. . .
Llasper: . . . and then we had a flood on our hands! We had to build ourselves a boat to live in so we didn't get washed away. . .
And maybe slightly boring and annoying. . .
Llasper: . . . but then the temperature dropped aaaaalllll the way back down to -19 degrees, and all that water froze right up! So then we had an ice skating rink on our hands. . .
REALLY boring. . .
Llasper: . . . so we took out our skates and made an ice skating show! Oh, it was lovely, the whole town came and we all skated and skated. . .
Llasper: . . . but of course, all of our houses were frozen in ice! So that's when I decided to live up on a hill instead of in a valley, and. . . heeeey, are you listening to me? Ungrateful youngin! *smacks everyone who's fallen asleep with his cane*
OW. Whoa, what? Oh, yes. Old people.
Llasper: I prefer "Those experienced at living. "
Fine. Those experienced at living, aka old guys, a-
Llasper: HEY. Yer being a baaaaad little girl.
Isn't it time for your nap?
Llasper: Oh, why yes it is!
Good. Then go away. As I was saying, we need to learn to respect and love pets like dear old Llasper. Dear OLD Llasper. OLD.
Llasper: I think I've been insulted.
I don't know why you'd think that. Anyhoo. . . if we don't learn to respect our elders, no matter how insane they are-
Llasper: I am NOT insane, you ungrateful little-
Or how deaf they are. . .
Llasper: WHAT? I can't hear you. WHAT?
Or how blind they are. . .
Llasper: *walks into a tree* OW. Stupid place fer a tree.
Or uncoordinated. . .
Llasper: *trips over a pebble* OW. Stupid place for a pebble. . .
We should still love them forever and evers!
Llasper: EXACTLY. Did you know that you talk too much? Honestly, all you do is talk talk talk. You've got NO respect. Back in the summer of '64, it was so hot that NO ONE would talk! You should take a lesson from that year, the sun was shining and there was no water, an-
AAAARRRRRGH. ENOUGH. *stalks off*
Llasper: Uh. . . *does a little dance and falls over* Help, I'm falling and I can't get up!
