The clothes dryer here is now full of feathers...ack! Another OH SNOP! by melvan Yesterday morning I went shopping in Woodbury with my parents. Woodbury is a city about 20 miles from where I live. They have just about everything there, so I try to go there often. Anyway, when we came out of Best Buy and were getting in the car, I opened my door and just barely bumped the car next to us.* Its car alarm started screaming. Don't you just LOVE car alarms? * Yes, I really did only bump it, I was NOT trying to break into it. Really. I was using the crowbar to...uhh...I was using it for an antenna! Yeah, that's it. =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= = As the Tractor Burns... = =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= STARRING: Jim Varney - as Raul Hackenspew Roseanne - as Esmerelda O.J. Simpson - as I.M. Gilty Barney the Dinosaur - as Howard Stern Jim Carrey - as Al Rightithen Princess Di - as Buffy Last time on ATTB, the Evil Taxi Driver, Raul, and Al ended up in Iowa. Meanwhile, the rest of the gang is planning a party. But we've decided to scrap that plot and transport them to somewhere else. The somewhere else in question is, in fact, eener's wedding. (The entire cast appears in a poof of borrowed bluish oldish newish smoke in the back of the church) Esmerelda: How'd we get here? Al: Whoa...those special effects again... (Al goes into a trance) Howard: What's going on here? Raul: Hmmmm...there's lots of people, they're all dressed up, and there's flowers everywhere. This could only mean one thing... Everyone: What? Raul: My toupee is on backwards. Buffy: Raul, your toupee is ALWAYS on backwards. Usher: Quiet please! Follow me. (The usher leads the gang to their seats) I.M.: So what's really happening here? Usher: It's a wedding. Buffy: A wedding? Who's getting married? Al: Haven't you been reading FME for the last few months? Buffy: No. Al: Well, if you had, you'd know who was getting married. Buffy: Why should I read that stuff? It's so pointless. Raul: *gasp* How dare you say that, Buffy! FME is full of relevant information, you just have to dig a while to find it. Esmerelda: SHHH! (The organ starts to play "Here Comes the Bride") I.M.: Hey look! It's eener! Everyone: SHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I.M.: Oh, right. Sorry. (The Evil Taxi Driver takes something out of his pocket) Howard: (whispers) Hey, what's that? Taxi Driver: It's a pie. Howard: Oh. What are you going to do with it? Taxi Driver: You'll see. (Suddenly, the Evil Taxi Driver stands up and throws the pie toward the front of the church. eener ducks just in time, and the pie hits the preacher.) Howard: Wow! Cool! I wanna try that! (Howard takes a pie from his pocket and hurls it toward the front of the church) Usher: Hey! Stop that! Al: Whoa...you guys are just TOO cool. (Al pushes a pie in the usher's face) Usher: That's it! You want a pie war? Well, you've got a pie war! (The usher takes several pies out of his pockets and throws them at wedding guests, and a world class pie war breaks out. Ten minutes later, the church is a mess of whipped cream, blueberry, apple, cherry, chocolate, and gfots.) Buffy: Wow...cool. Join us next time, when a large elephant is dropped from an airplane onto the entire cast of ATTB! =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= = Editor's Reccomendations... = =-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-= We reccomend that you send us stuff to put in the 'zine!

Well, actually she does, but "The Wise Sage Rests" wouldn't be too good of an opener for the Wise Sage column, now would it? Anyway, send Wise Sage questions to firstname.lastname@example.org Dear the wisest of the wise sage, What does Spam smell like? I have never come into contact with it and it bothers me that I don't understand the obvious joke that surrounds it. By the way, the wise Sage is the wisest sage I know!!!!!!!!!!
