Bubba Botox Brain: Freedom Fries for everyone!

klokwkdog-bluState has been up for a week, but he's coming down
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: And he's trailing desiner sheets
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: It's like a...a..Fellini Film
klokwkdog-bluState: where was it, CO? guy found a "donor" on the Internet and both swore no money was involved, so they did the transplant
cease: sounds like the ghost of ruth at yesterday's game
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: One's got a new kidney...the other has a second hand femur
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: What's the score Cat?
georgeleroyllanwydd: Interesting we haven't seen doctec for weeks. At least I haven't
klokwkdog-bluState: they certainly acted ruthless IMO, Cat

klokwkdog-bluState: ...to a restaurant?
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: "I'd like a liver to go, and on the rocks please"
cease: probably with a pool table

||||||||| Catherwood escorts llanwyddagain in through the front door at 11:31 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Hah!
cease: and speaking of the doctor....
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: and Hi
doctec: hi gang
Merlyn: hi dok
llanwyddagain: how was the dinner, doc?
doctec: we just got back from the local bistro - and our arms are really tired
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Hiya Doc...we were just riffing on your lack of presence
doctec: sorry we're running late
doctec: dinner was delightful
cease: better than walking early
doctec: i had soup, lili had a burger and let me nibble on her rings
cease: how erotic
doctec: yes, we were the entertainment for the evening - we got the door plus $50
Merlyn: screen door?
doctec: and drinks were on the house!
cease: sounds like my kinda house
klokwkdog-bluState: you were the prize diners?
llanwyddagain: nothing like getting paid to eat dinner
doctec: the problem was, we had to climb up on the roof of the house to get them
klokwkdog-bluState: well, at least the first few, eh DT?
doctec: cat: you say you don't get 'the daily show' up in canada ... don't they carry it on the comedy network up there?
doctec: according to lili's daughter in hamilton, they do :-)
klokwkdog-bluState: of course then, it's just as bad trying to swim down, but the view is better
cease: yes we do, doc
cease: i try and catch it daily
cease: it is superb
doctec: that's good
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Best time Cat
klokwkdog-bluState: that's why it's there...
doctec: lili lives by it
klokwkdog-bluState: jon stewart runes her life?
doctec: i think jon stewart is brilliant - i just hope all the media attention he is getting now doesn't go to his head and he starts taking himself too seriously
cease: elrond can change all that
doctec: 'cause if that happens, no one else will (take him seriously)
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong ig Norse Klok's obvious pun
cease: he seems pretty level headed, doc. at least for now
klokwkdog-bluState: LOL
doctec: i hope you're right cat
doctec: he sure went after the cnn "hardball" guys last week - as a guest on their show (!)
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Doc: That was great
cease: i heard that on air america.
klokwkdog-bluState: you mean "Crossfire"?
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Klok: Tucker Carlson
doctec: oh yes, sorry klok - i meant "crossfire"
cease: since air america went on the air, i'm listening to a lot less cbc, which is not necessarily a good thing.
klokwkdog-bluState: obviously, definitely on the house. 1.47 sheets indeed
doctec: i get all those shout-down shows confused
doctec: they are a blur in my mind
cease: i now know more about the follies of bush than any non-voter needs to
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Klok: Is on the House, y'all
klokwkdog-bluState: "Hardball" is where Chris Matthews argues with everybody, including himself. And on both sides of the Question...
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Fair, Balanced, and Loud
doctec: klok: has jon stewart ever been a guest on that show?
||||||||| It's 11:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:

||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: IF he has, he likely won't be asked back
klokwkdog-bluState: no, but his performance on "Nightline" was profound. Yet Koppel took him down a notch or two
cease: has anyone seen his book?
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Not in Wal-Mark
klokwkdog-bluState: oops - i mean not that i know of -- i don't get to watch it that often, not having cable
cease: i didnt see that and i often watch nightline, which comes on after the daily show up here
llanwyddagain: I've never watched "Hardass". I don't get cable
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: I watch Ass Phault
klokwkdog-bluState: it's kind of like his Sunday AM show, Ilan, but meaner and longer
llanwyddagain: wow! I just died
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: also known as Home security Follies
doctec: cat: lili ordered the book and got it 3 wks ago, it's hilarious
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Ilan: If you're born again, I dunt wanna k ow
doctec: it's not really just "his" book - it's him and all the 'daily show' writers
klokwkdog-bluState: with Koppel, he resorted to his comic personna, finally, since he had no answers for the hard line Ted was feeding him. Koppel's got about 10 notches on the sum of Begalia and Carlson combined
llanwyddagain: Ass Phault! LOL
doctec: klok: i'm sorry i missed that interview - that would have been interesting to catch
cease: i must check it out
klokwkdog-bluState: it was during Rep. Convention
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood pipes up: "11:44 PM and late as usual, it's Tommy Armitron, just back from Billville."
doctec: i understand that the crossfire thing is available via bit torrent - is the nightline interview available for download anywhere?
llanwyddagain: hey Tom
cease: tommy
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Hi Tommy
llanwyddagain: you new here, Tom?
cease: i wondered where i put my gun
Tommy Armitron: No, I'm just feeling particularly boney tonight.
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Cat: I thought you left it in the tail of the plane
klokwkdog-bluState: dunno, DT -- but there might be a transcript
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Bone Meister
Tommy Armitron: not feeling particularly boney.
cease: bone e boi?
Tommy Armitron: Yeah, yeah. The bonester, the boneman.
cease: thre's a line capone does about st. tommy's gun, in Neal Amid
klokwkdog-bluState: ahhh folks, it's been a loooong exposition, so I think I'll implement my Exit Strategy and pull out...
cease: as most of you know already
llanwyddagain: this is OLD trick puzzle
Tommy Armitron: truman capone?

cease: austin hasnt checked in for a while now
cease: maybe he's travelling now
cease: or perhaps busy. i hope they're writing some new stuff for their upcoming tour
Tommy Armitron: If two of them showed, it would break the bank.
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: He travels by night
cease: i don think that's ever happened, tom, but i havent been here every thrusday
Tommy Armitron: Alphonse Capote
Dexter ''BoSox'' Fong: Cat: It's never happened
cease: that's not writing. it's not even typing
cease: yes, all the logs are online, it would be easy enough to find out
cease: maybe austin just got tired of it. he tends to go in and out of interests
Tommy Armitron: four crazy games
doctec: if i seem inattentive, it's because i am working on some things for cat's sites at the moment
||||||||| Catherwood escorts llanwydd in through the front door at 11:51 PM, picks up his cues (only slightly scorched), and heads for the billiard room.
