Penny and Stu Cross the Brooklyn Bridge

After their harrowing experience with the stolen bicycle Penny and Stu decided that walking, not riding, the streets of New York was probably their best bet. But the streets were getting boring.  They felt closed in.  Too many commuters, too many cars and too many tourists.  Oh, the tourists.  “If one more tourist asks me which way is Uptown I’m going to vomit all over their fanny pack,” Stu told Penny.

Penny and Stu set off to cross all 5,989 feet of the Brooklyn Bridge.  Despite it being February 2nd the air was warm, maybe a function of the same global warming that cast off the ice flows that brought both Penny and Stu to New York City in the first place.  While Penny took in the view, Stu dreamed of speed. “I told you we should have kept that bike!” Stu told Penny.  “We’re getting smoked!”

Penny stopped midway to read about the history of the bridge and New York Harbor.  Stu hocked loogies over the side.

By the time they reached the other side of the bridge they couldn’t help but bask in the high that comes from crossing such an iconic structure. They took it all in.

“Wait!  Do we have to go all the way back?” Stu asked.

“I say we keep going, my good chap.  See what we can find in the great beyond.”

And their adventure continued…

Arctic Stu’s First Temp Job

No one has it easy in New York City.  Unless you’re a Kardashian or a Central Park squirrel you have to work for every scrap.  As a polar bear cub, Arctic Stu was really having a tough time.  Rent was piling up and he was tired of Colonel Penny Loafer yapping about how he was carrying the penguin’s share of the responsibilities in their new environment.  Desperate, Arctic Stu went to a temp agency.

He should have known that something was array when the agent winked and said she had the perfect fit for him in the medical offices of Lest Yethink Wecare.

They already had a polar bear working there!  A big one!  This temp agent clearly didn’t know how territorial some polar bears are and Derrick was no exception. Arctic Stu was settling into his cubicle when the attack came from above. Derrick pounced on Arctic Stu and had him on the ground before Arctic Stu could call his secretary for help.

Stu struggled but in a miraculous twist of fate, Derrick slipped on a pile of papers and landed flat on his back.

Stu quickly scampered away and when he was a safe distance from Derrick, posted a scathing review of the temp agency on his Facebook wall followed by seven sad face emoticons.  Hours later his friends saw that he checked into McSorleys Ale House on his FourSquare account.  This wasn’t the first challenge in Arctic Stu’s adventures, and it certainly wouldn’t be his last.

Colonel Penny Loafer and Arctic Stu Hit the Beach

The New York winter was closing in on Colonel Penny Loafer and Arctic Stu.  Despite their natural proclivity to the freezing white stuff the duo needed a change of pace.  They took the F train to Times Square where they transfered to the P train.  Day and night passed, then another day, and soon they arrived in Mexico.

Arctic Stu was nervous that he’d get a supremely wicked sunburn.  They’d planned this trip so hastily that he didn’t have time to go to the tanning salon and build up his base.  Now, he was kicking himself.  “My Living Social deal of five tans for $5 expires in two weeks,” he told Penny.  “I totally should have used it!”

White as ever, he grabbed two umbrellas from an Italian couple who didn’t seem to be using them and found comfort in the shade.  As it were, Colonel Penny Loafer couldn’t take the heat either.  Before retiring his hotel room for the remainder of the afternoon he scouted out a funky beach bar and decided to return in the evening, when it was cooler.
