Last e-mail thread's getting too big
And then there's Woobie = somebody you want to give a big hug, wrap in a blanket and feed soup to when he or she suffers so very beautifully.
In a Warner Brother's cartoon serries, maybe 10 years ago... with "teen" knock off of the main characthers, there was one clip that broke my heart - clearly a woobie moment.
The cat character (the cousine of Silvester, i think) had a ribbon that was virtually alive in the wind. It was "teasing" the cat, and they were playing together, and it "petted' the cat while it flew in the wind... but then the wind died, adn the ribbon "died". the cat pawed at it, sooooo sad. (I cried, stupidly).
but it is all alright, the wind picked up and brought the ribbon back to life.
woobies are the best manipulators!
