||||||||| Catherwood steals into the room, and announces "Announcing 'Mudhead', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 8:48 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the Aviary...
Mudhead: Noone is chatting?
||||||||| Mudhead leaves at 8:50 PM, singing "Oh, I'm just a little fishy, floating in the sea, and there ain't no hook that's smart enough to catch the likes of me..."
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Mudhead close behind, mutters something about disrupting his 8:50 PM tree-stunting plans, and scurries off to the vestibule.
||||||||| At 8:50 PM, Mudhead hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."

Hemlock Stones: goes to get camera
Bambi: Stones did you get YouTube working?
Hemlock Stones: no, not a thing

cease: its the new pepper
klokwkdog: The Guardian is blowing a cork about science education in Britain and making lots of noise about art majors controlling the media

klokwkdog: I think the real problem is like here: you kill yourself to be engineer, scientist, doctor and some room temp. IQ types in law, politcs and "business" are the ones pulling down the big $$
Merlyn: cosmo kramer?
cease: was on a nice cork floor recently
Merlyn: in Ireland, cat?
klokwkdog: NYT just had a graphic of how many in each country believe in evolution. US is tied at the bottom with...Turkey

cease: not ired at all. rather mild mannered
Merlyn: well, we DID give them their name with our bird

Merlyn: it's a vodeododo
Hemlock Stones: passes Merlyn phone number of good libel lawyer to deal with Klok
Merlyn: gas prices are high, and there's bombing in Tyre

Mudhead: it is sounding fine here in Connecticut
