Gus the Goofy Gopher

Like many other runty rodents, Gus had anĀ entirely undeserved nickname.

“Goofy Gopher,” his mom had affectionately called him. But the weasels found out.

Gus’s father said, “Reappropriate it. Go into stand-up. Make a name for yourself. Show them up.”

But it turned out Gus’s jokes just weren’t very funny.
