Sample Sunday: "Toons"

Welcome to Sample Sunday, where we authors give you a taste of our work. Here's another excerpt from my comedy series, TOONS. This section discusses how "anthros" (animal cartoon characters) handle sugar.

Anthros respond to glucose in the same way that humans respond to alcohol. In other words, they get drunk on sugar. This explains a wide variety of abnormal behaviors, including the almost obsessive loyalty some anthros have to certain breakfast cereals and snack cakes. These products are banned in Looneyville, but as in most societies, illegal substances still manage to slip through the cracks. Complex criminal organizations have formed to exploit the weaknesses of anthros.

In response, a full-scale sugar prevention program has been mounted under the slogan, "Just Say No To A Complete Breakfast." Cereal enforcement teams work twenty-four hours a day with billions of bucks at their disposal, equipped with highly-trained officers and the latest technology in order to cripple the sugar industry in no way whatsoever.

If you'd like to read the rest of it, you can get the first part at the Amazon Kindle Store.
