King Sparky the Somethingth

Continuing in my series of “Great Wibbles in History” (see portrait of founding Wibble, Spinach Washington below), I present His Royal Highness, King Sparky the Somethingth.  Now in case you’re wondering about “somethingth,” the Wibbles have never been a race of mathematical geniuses.  In fact, I don’t think they can count much higher than four.  But they're cute, so who cares?
And in typical Sparky fashion, he’s oblivious to the Queen Squid lurking behind that curtain.  In fact, I don’t think he even realizes there even IS a Queen – she’s pretty subtle, that one is!
As with the Spinaches, the resemblance between King Sparky and today’s Sparky is truly uncanny.  Genetics is a fascinating science!
