The Awfuls

Mr. Awful and Mrs. Awful live in a warn-out, scuffed up, tattered Giant’s boot house in the woods on Chicken Dinner Road. They decided to have some kids so they’d be able to make them do all the cooking, cleaning, and unpleasantness, while they could do whatever they wished. Thus Ezekiel, Nanette, Gideon, Mildred, Lester, Imogen, Rufus, Agnes, Horace and Wren were born. But with the last name of Awful, it should be no surprise that they were awful too!
