Signs, Signs, Everywhere a Sign: Beneath the Cage Grate

20200602_084228Poor Morty, coupled with Lockdown madness and masked humans, his bot buddy Alexa has recently ratcheted up her silliness to a whole new level.

Seems Morty is now being told where to go, what to do and how to do it in Sign form…

If this craziness continues, Morty is going to make his own sign for Alexa, and you can bet it will not be parrot – or bot, friendly ūüôā

Find out what Morty has been dealing with of late n the June edition of Beneath the Cage Grate.

Zoom Zoom Alexa: Beneath the Cage Grate

IMG_20191230_140702Morty’s Christmas was a success – mostly.¬† He was of course showered with toys from Santa Claws, and his two sidekicks also received cool presents from the jolly fellow.

However, Morty is dismayed with one of his roommate’s Christmas haul – and her subsequent experimentation with her new ‘toy’.

Read Morty’s January edition of Beneath the Cage Grate and judge for yourself whether Morty’s Christmas wishes for Alexa and Roomba came true!

Dear Santa…: Beneath the Cage Grate

Dear Santa Claws… Claus

MortyPoor Santa, he has his hands full this year with the Christmas wishes from Alexa, Morty and Roomba as there appears to be some ‘issues’ ruffling a few wires and feathers between them!

The December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate finds Alexa, Morty and Roomba¬† once again at odds, with their respective Letters to Santa reflecting quite the tryst –¬† and the lengths each will go to spoil each other’s Christmas celebrations.

It’s also fair to say that Morty’s mom may want to read what her housemates have requested from Santa, before Christmas day arrives, to perhaps avoid the beginnings of a new, chaotic tradition!

Beneath the Cage Grate: Never Trick or Treat with Bots!

Now, you’d think these three would be welcomed at each door with a chuckle and a shower of candy, right?¬† Alas, as you’d expect, things go a bit sideways, and we find all three little ghouls scooting home in haste, quick to escape some rather weird and spooky encounters.

Be prepared to be scared – silly – in Morty’s Halloween column!¬† BOO
