51. Monsters Like Googling Themselves

Monsters can’t just toil away all day in caves. They have reputations to mind.

A quick Google search reveals where and when they were sighted last.

Because if it’s on the internet, you know it’s true.

Can you imagine what it would do to a monster’s fame and esteem if they were to fall below the Chupacabra or Martians on a Google monster search? It would be devastating.

Back in the day, monsters were only concerned with how many little girls they could make scream. Now, you have to pay your internet bill and worry about your SEO and your ISP. Which is which?

After a quick internet search, there is no time to waste. The monster must emerge from the shadows once again to make a scene and hopefully end up in a blog, or maybe a blurry photo on Facebook.

Mayhem isn’t what it used to be.
