Underground Volcano Lair, Mon Amour

Yes, it is a tradition -- or an old charter or something -- for mad scientists and evil genii to acquire a totemic animal to caress while they watch the unfolding of their master-plan for world domination. However, the "white Persian cat" part of it is more of a guideline than an absolute rule. Also there has been a recent upswing in the popularity of the World Domination career-path (the local polytech is offering a course in it) and the pet-shops are all sold out of white Persian cats.

At Riddled Enterprises World Domination Dept. we categorically deny any suggestion that the decision to switch to a white guinea-pig resulted from a product-placement deal with Cautious Charlie's Cut-Price Cavies. Professor Demento in the laboratory upstairs couldn't even get his hands on a guinea-pig. He has to make do with axolotls.

The spiny echidna was a poor choice. Very ouchy, very hurty.

Guinea pigs?

HMPH. Formative years spent working in a pet store left me with an anti-guinea pig bias. Because they were the only animals in the place that would sit in their food bowls pooping and eating at the same time.

Trust me, you'd be better off with a budgie.

A white cat is a dead giveaway. How about a hedgehog? No one would see that coming.

OMG, world domination is, like, so yesterday. Most cool villains these days just concentrate on the TRI-STATE AREA.

The only advantage is if you "accidentally" blow off a limb, it will just grow back.

Most days just achieving domination over the music room is all I can manage, let alone DelMarVa.
