The pink mist descended upon the Earth without warning, and the status quo was completely turned on its head.

The cats were the first to walk upright. The dogs took an entire day to catch on. The birds were the first to talk—chickens even began to joke—while the fishes tired of swimming and flew.

The cloud turned purple and hopped around the ground. Elephants grew wings and flapped into the sun.

And humans, believing themselves trapped in a fever dream, closed their windows on it all.

The giant bedbugs gushed about the feast they had a week later.
