the dark hole of despair is spotted in its dismal hiding place
The rather badly drawn cartoon reads, "Have you seen the dark hole of despair? I seem to have misplaced it and it's making me unacceptably chirpy. Look, my trousers are turning a ghastly bright colour."
A voice from beyond says, "I think the cat's got it."
And indeed, the cat has spotted it in its dismal hiding place. Whereupon the dark hole of despair says, "Oh just leave me alone."
