There’s still time left on the clock, though, so let’s knock a couple of items out, shall we?
We can call today’s episode the ‘Faith in Humanity is Momentarily Restored’ episode.
For those of you curious as to what the hell a double down is, you can find a picture on it from my original post about it here.
Thankfully, the general populace innately sensed that a sandwich without bread is not a sandwich. Yes, we may love our sausages wrapped in bacon and then covered in a delicious glaze of sugar, spice and fat, but even we have to draw the line somewhere. America, you’re not as fat and prone to poor decision making as the rest of the world believes.
A Quick Detour Into History!
The Earl of Sandwich and Baron Montagu sit at a table playing cards. The Earl of Sandwich rings a tiny bell. Enter Poncenby
EARL OF SANDWICHPoncenby!
PONCENBYYes, my lord Earl of Sandwich
EARL OF SANDWICHI fear I grow peckish, and yet I wish not to leave this rousing game of Go Fish I am ensconced in with my good friend, Baron Montagu.
PONCENBYIf you wish, I can have the chef prepare something for you. Mayhaps a crock of deepfried goose testicles would satiate your appetite?
EARL OF SANDWICHNo no no, you dumb plebe. That’s far too heavy. Instead, take a half pound of fried bacon, three types of cheese and some of that disgusting sauce we use to mask rancid meat and stick that betwixt two chicken breasts. And deep fry those chicken breasts in batter and lard, for good measure! Bring that to me post haste. And also, I wish to name this creation after myself.
PONCENBYThe ‘Sandwich’ sir?
EARL OF SANDWICHNo, you pile of dung! Call it the ‘Double Down.’ After my sexual habits.
BARON MONTAGUI say, Early, that sounds rather delicious. Put be down for a Double Down.
EARL OF SANDWICHMake that two, Poncenby.
EARL OF SANDWICHI daresay I’m licking my chops already.
BARON MONTAGUWould you like a cigar whilst we wait for our tasty treats?
EARL OF SANDWICHWhy yes, that would be excellent.
Baron Montagu present the Earl of Sandwich with a cigar box. The Earl of Sandwich opens the box, revealing a clear bottle filled with an alcoholic beverage.
EARL OF SANDWICHZounds! A Smirnoff Ice! You have bested me, Baron Montagu!
BARON MONTAGUEYou have no choice but to fall to one knee and immediately consume this beverage in its entirety!
EARL OF SANDWICHAlas!
And we’re back.
The Gulf of Mexico – Now With Less Oil! According to BP, that oil well that has been gushing since April has finally stopped. Of course, BP cautioned that this is the first step and that it’s possible depending on the pressure at that cap that there could be additional SHUT UP BP JUST LET US HAVE OUR GOOD NEWS ALREADY!
Of course some people, like RvD’s very own Chris Othic, refuse to accept any other explanation than the well ran out of oil.
And Finally, what better way to celebrate the end of the work week than with a visit to The Playground tonight. CRASSUS will be there! Songs will be sung, comedy sketches performed, and either laughter or tears will ensue. Tonight at 10 for $10!
