I once knew a girl
who would just stand there and stare?
At anyone or anything,
she seemed not to care

She’d stare at the ground,
She’d stare at the sky.
She’d stare at you for hours,
and you’d never know why.
But after winning the local staring contest,
she finally gave her eyes
a well-deserved rest.”

The Girl With Many Eyes
One day in the park
I had quite a surprise.
I met a girl
who had many eyes.

She was really quite pretty
(and also quite shocking!)
and I noticed she had a mouth,
so we ended up talking.

We talked about flowers,
and her poetry classes,
and the problems she’d have
if she ever wore glasses.

It’s great to know a girl
who has so many eyes,
but you really get wet
when she breaks down and cries.”

“Robot Boy
Mr. and Mrs. Smith had a wonderful life.
They were normal, happy husband and wife.
One day they got the news that made Mr. Smith glad.
Mrs. Smith would be a mom
which would make him the dad!
But something was wrong with their bundle of joy.
It wasn’t human at all,
it was a robot boy!
He wasn’t warm and cuddly
and he didn’t have skin.
Instead, there was a cold, thin layer of tin.
There were wires and tubes sticking out of his head.

He just lay there and stared,
not living or dead.

The only time he seemed alive at all
was with a long extension cord
plugged into the wall.

Mr. Smith yelled at the doctor,
“What have you done to my boy?
He’s not flesh and blood,
he’s aluminum alloy!”

The doctor said gently,
“What I’m going to say
will sound pretty wild.
But you’re not the father
of this strange-looking child.
You see, there still is some question
about the child’s gender,
but we think that its father
is a microwave blender.”

The Smith’s lives were now filled
with misery and strife.
Mrs. Smith hated her husband,
and he hated his wife.
He never forgave her unholy alliance:
a sexual encounter
with a kitchen appliance.

And Robot Boy
grew to be a young man.

Though he was often mistaken
for a garbage can.”

-Tim Burton Quotes

17.

Good morning star

shine the earth says hello.

to fulfill social relationships.”

“Stain Boy
Of all the superheroes,
the strangest one by far,
doesn’t have a special power,
or drive a fancy car.

next to Superman and Batman, I guess he must seem tame.
But to me, he is quite special,
and Stain Boy is his name.

He can’t fly around tall buildings,
or outrun a speeding train,
the only talent he seems to have
is to leave a nasty stain.

Sometimes I know it bothers him,
that he can’t run or swim or fly,
and because of this one ability,
his dry cleaning bill is sky-high.”

-Tim Burton Quotes

once it’s stopped beating?

I have a problem when people say

something’s real or not real, or normal or abnormal.

Do you know who I mean?’

I replied that not only did I know whom he meant

but that I had two children by him and, in fact,

The man looked around and nearly died.

Disney and I were a bad mix.

For a year I was probably more depressed than I have ever been in my life.

I worked for a great animator, Glenn Kean.

He was nice, he was good to me, he’s a really strong animator and he helped me.

But he also kind of tortured me because

I got all the cute fox scenes to draw,

and I couldn’t draw all those four-legged Disney foxes.

I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t even fake the Disney style.

Mine looked like road kills.”

And it seems I still have a tear to shed”
