From RICKY RICOTTA'S MIGHTY ROBOT VS. THE STUPID STINKBUGS FROM SATURN #6
Ricky and his Mighty Robot flew into the backyard.
There was Lucy, having a tea party with her pets.
"Wow!" cried Ricky. "Look how big your Jurassic Jackrabbits got!"
"They like to eat," said Lucy. "So I named them Fudgie, Cupcake, and Waffles."
Ricky rolled his eyes.
"Let's play princess!" Lucy said.
"No way!" said Ricky.
"Oh, come on," Lucy begged. "I'll be the beautiful princess, and you can be the ugly prince. Fudgie, Cupcake, and Waffles will be our royal ponies, and your Robot can be the big, brave knight."
"What part of 'no way' don't you understand?" asked Ricky.
"Now boys," said Ricky's father, "I want you to play nicely with Lucy."
"Rats!" said Ricky. "This is turning out to be a very bad day."
But what Ricky didn't know was that things were about to get much, much worse, much worse.
