This is no ordinary collection of junk...one of the things is an Energizer bunny flashlight. Ok, that's not *too* weird, you may say. But this flashlight is nestled up next to a large ceramic pink piggy bank. AND the piggy bank has duct tape stuck to its stomach. Ok...and over on the other side of the shelf, there is a roll of duct tape, sitting there like a trophy of some kind. (And get this: I saw her put her Dr. Pepper in the hole in the duct tape roll...yeah...) Behind the duct tape is a box of Animaniacs Macaroni and Cheese. She doesn't plan to eat this mac n cheese, mind you!!! I think she plans to keep it just in case it becomes a collector's item, or something. Next to the mac n cheese is a stuffed Wakko doll. (Wakko is one of the Animaniacs.) And get this: she has two miniature tractors up there... signifying this lovely E-zine, of course. (I, too have a small tractor at home, which melvan gave me as a kewlio gift....) To top off this lovely ensemble, melvan has a miniature pool table on her shelf, which I so ceremoniously gave her as a gift once. Well, that basically covers it... Rebuttal by melvan: Oh yeah? Well...well...eener eats salt & vinegar potato chips!!!! AND...um...uh...er...hmmm...nevermind. Reply by eener: Is that it? 70 cents! (note to folks: don't even try to get this one. It's a joke between me and mel from wayyyyyyyy back!) Next from melvan again: Hmmm...that window looks like there's another room over there...Oh...and...PLLBBP! (more inside jokes) Special note to Darin in GA: Welllll...paint the doghouse black!!!!! Note to all you kewl subscribers from eener and melvan: We love all you WaCky subscribers...keep on laughing!! "It's like 3 women cooking in the dark..." --actual quote from eener's brother note from eener: Geeeeee mel, do ya think the intro's long enough yet? note from melvan: Nope, add a couple more pages to it....

Simpson Howard Stern: played by Barney the Dinosaur Al Rightithen: played by Jim Carrey Buffy: played by Princess Di When we last saw our ATTB characters, they were putting Al to bed because he was saying...uh...weird things. Note to the new and/or clueless: Al Rightithen is running for President of the United States. Al (waking up): Ah...(y*wns)...that was a good nap! I should take them more often. (Bill Clinton appears in a poof of green smoke) Bill: Heyyyy...what's going on? *looks sadly at his empty hands* Where did my Big Mac go? Buffy: Uh...I think you're on the wrong stage, pal. Bill: I feel your pain... Esmerelda: Ack! Get out of here!!!!! (Bill Clinton disappears in a poof of striped smoke) Howard: *slightly bug-eyed* Wowwwwww...the special effects just keep getting cooler and cooler! Either the special effects budget has been increased, or the editors are in a good mood. Buffy: *with a thoughtful expression on her face* They must have been drinking Dr. Pepper...just what the doctor ordered. Howard: What, aren't you going to attribute this to the metric system? Buffy: Uh, not this time. Raul: Whew! I'm glad Bill disappeared quickly! We wouldn't want him to pick up on any of our campaign secrets! I.M.: Yeah, whatever. Al: Who cares? I'm going to win! The polls don't lie! I'm right at the top! When I get to the White House, I'm gonna have a party! Raul: Uh, Al...that's what *every* President does when they win...
