Lamont and Dude Contemplate Human Power

“Do you ever think about how absurd it is that humans are on top of the food chain? I mean, look at these.”

“What am I looking at Dude?”

“My ‘claws’.”

“I know what you mean. When it comes to rending and tearing, they’re ridiculous. When it comes down to it, human’s biggest advantage might be their brains, but even there, I’m a little skeptical.”

“You want to go out and catch a few sets? I waxed up your board for you. It’s not great but we’ve surfed worse.”

“Wow. Thanks! I’d love to, Dude.”


Lamont and Dude are characters I came up with a few years ago. They have the uncanny ability to remember many of their past incarnations which gives them a unique perspective on life, the universe and everything.

  1. I have a couple characters named Wes and Lan…the Tern brothers. They grew up in the old American west, but stumbled onto a 1964 Buick Skylark that has intergalactic travel capabilities. They, too, develop a unique perspective.

    • I love the names you gave your characters and that’s a very funny conceit! Lamont and Dude are millions of years old. If you’re bored sometime, you can do a search and rake up probably a hundred episodes in the stories of their lives. 😀

  2. Yep. Not much good for the rending thing and with the current administration I’m pretty sure the brains are not being used to full advantage. Maybe Lamont has the right idea and we’d better go surfing while we can!
