FME on the web:

To kick off this, our thirty-second issue, I (eener), thought I'd tell you
all what is located on a shelf in melvan's room.  This is no ordinary
collection of 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!!!!

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

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....

YET another note from eener:  There's one more thing I have to say one
certain Matt Prins......Yaaaa...JUST KIDDING!!!


This one was contributed to us by mookie:

Iowa:  Idiots Out Walking Around

eener notes: I've heard that one before!! Heh heh heh

Okay!!!!  Okayyyyyy...on with the 'zine, ferpete'ssake!!

...And now for something completely different........
(Yup...Monty Python all de way)


The Characters:
Raul:  played by Jim Varney
Esmerelda:  played by Roseanne
I.M. Gilty: played by O.J. 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...
