A Firesign Chat


||||||||| Catherwood re-enters the Waiting Room and explains "This is the main discussion room which is logged each night."
||||||||| Catherwood announces, "The time is 4:33 AM - I now declare Thursday's chat log for February 22, 2007 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Firebroiled into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:44 AM, then departs.
Firebroiled: The True White Brother is coming home. Remember what the Great Spirit said? If we did what we were supposed to do, and lived according to The Plan, White Brother would finish his work in the East and come back to us.
Firebroiled: The miracle of the burning Bush,... got a match??
||||||||| At 8:46 AM, Firebroiled runs out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and RufusTFiretween disembarks at 8:11 PM.
RufusTFiretween: Who's movie _is_ this, anyway?
||||||||| RufusTFiretween is kicked out just as the clock strikes 8:12 PM.
||||||||| A time machine materializes at 8:15 PM and Porgie Tirebiter steps out, carrying a grape from ancient Greece.
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 8:21 PM, dragging Mudhead by the hair and asks "Can anyone vouch for this idiot?"
Mudhead: hello, pogie
Mudhead: Its my movie
||||||||| It's 8:30 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Porgie Tirebiter - dead from The Plague
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Mudhead: I shall return next week
||||||||| At 8:33 PM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Mudhead!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...
||||||||| Catherwood ushers Dexter Fong into the room, accepts a jar of pennies as a gratuity, mumbles something about 8:44 PM, then departs.
||||||||| Around 8:44 PM, Dexter Fong walks off into the sunset...
||||||||| Catherwood leads ah,clem into the room, accepts three dimes as a gratuity, mutters something about 8:45 PM, then departs.
||||||||| New CNI streaming notice: '"a few minutes with FireSign Theatre" at about 9 eastern, dwarves and bozos,'
||||||||| Gusts of wind blow in from outside and the thumpa-thumpa-thumpa of helicopter blades is heard as Happy Panditt's chopper lands on the lawn and Porgie Tirebiter disembarks at 8:56 PM.
Porgie Tirebiter: What awaits us this glorious evening?

Bambi: hi Clem and Porgie
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, February 22, 2007 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!"

Porgie Tirebiter: seatbelts
Porgie Tirebiter: I could hardly wait to get here
cease: wait til you get There. it's even better
||||||||| With a theatrical clearing of his throat, Catherwood snorts derisively: "9:03 PM and late as usual, it's RufusTFiretween, just back from California."
RufusTFiretween: It's just this little chromium switch here...
RufusTFiretween: Pizza in the bedroom?
Bambi: Hi Cat, Tween :-) just had a problem with the page ... hope that's not an indication of the night's chat activities :-(
Porgie Tirebiter: I'm not moving very fast
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in at 9:05 PM, dragging Dexter Fong by one foot and asks "Can anyone vouch for this web surfer?"
