Cranks McMorbidly
#I3 in My Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
This terrible tortoise was world’s only hump backed hook nosed snapping sea turtle. If he could have talked he might have sent you into the deepest darkest doldrums you may have ever encountered. From his indoor water tank, he could have slowly torture you with morose tales of his life at the bottom of Lake Funkwart that sits just South of Perilous Downs. He could have brought you to uncontrollable tears as he recounted the grim story of his capture by a young Ravenous McMorbidly who was looking for the ideal creature to give to Chef Delisha to make turtle stew. (Ravenous almost lost several body parts.) After sharing his stories he may have smiled devilishly at you as you sank to the floor in a puddle of pitiful groans.
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
