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 October 02, 2008 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Happy Harry Senate Update enters at 5:18 AM as Catherwood takes their hat and goat and rushes off to the Hat Pack Annex.
Happy Harry Senate Update: Seekers, The U.S. Senate has passed the TARP program short for Troubled Assets Relief Program and added more money to the request to raise the national debt while making it possible for the Secretary of the Treasury to buy "troubled assets" and sell them as he or hee sees fit to benefit the country as long as it pays back the national debt when the program pays off. Funny, that's what I said about my college loan as an engineering major, with a minor in dramatics, and another in astrophysics, and I'm still slinging burgers just to pay it all back. But I do have an Erector Set that was par for the course. Maybe I ought to throw a TARP over it, or do some pushups to make it go away. I just can't sing Viva Viagra about this though. The Senate sent a "loaded compromise" back to the House for a vote that could reverse their reversal of their first adaptation of the bail out plan that should reverse the trend on Wall Street to make bad decisions by giving that power to Secretary Paulson of the Treasury or his successor. Nothing succeeds like success I always say, unless Everything I Know Is Wrong. The vote was 74 in favor with 25 against and one abstaining. I hope they don't stand him on his head just to correct his attitude. Probably not enough time. The recession could start at any minute, and nothing can stop it if Congress recesses before it can be stopped. Don't anyone tell them that the recession started forty years ago though. They might not be able to hold back their bipolarity if they got wind of a trend toward the downside of things. It's all downhill form here. Here's a secret video of the Senate Banking Committee pulling the Treasury up to an ATM Machine to borrow 800 billion dollars from the taxpayers to save Ebeneezer Scrooge. God bless us everyone.

Happy Harry Senate Update: Catherwood, quote me as saying, "Speak Out Seek Out".
||||||||| Catherwood quotes Happy Harry Senate Update as saying "speak out seek out".
||||||||| Happy Harry Senate Update leaves at 5:22 AM, 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..."
||||||||| "5:27 AM? 5:27 AM!!" says Catherwood, "Happy Harry Senate Update should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Happy Harry Senate Update enters and sits in the comfy chair.
||||||||| At 5:31 AM, Happy Harry Senate Update vanishes mysteriously -- just as Nino the Mind Boggler predicted!
||||||||| 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 Firebroiled falls out at 7:32 AM.
Firebroiled: There must be some way out of this..
I’ll change the air, that’s what I’ll do..
What have I got left on the Climate Control?.
Dust Storm? .
Tibetan Wilderness?.
Land of the Pharaohs?.
Land of the Pharaohs!.
That sounds great! . . . .

Firebroiled: Fighting is out of style, Dexter . . . . ??
||||||||| At 7:33 AM, the lights go out! Rocky Rococo's voice pierces the inky darkness: "I've got you now, Firebroiled!" Shattering glass is heard, and then the lights come back on...

||||||||| It's 12:30 AM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Dexter Fong - dead from the fiddlers
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood accompanies Johnny Piano into the room, accepts a $3 bill as a gratuity, mutters something about 1:27 AM, then departs.
Johnny Piano: I know that no one will read this, but...."Tequila" was by The Champs (with Jimmy Seals, many years before Seals & Crofts).
Johnny Piano: And since no one saw my post from just before the usual start of chat, I bought Box Of Danger online at CD Universe - preordering got me a kick-ass price. Don't know if it's showing up in the regular chain stores, but the local indie here had it on display on Tuesday (street date).
Johnny Piano: Meanwhile I shall go and laugh heartily at both the VEEP DEEBATE and the Dangerous Box...
||||||||| Johnny Piano leaves at 1:31 AM, 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, and announces to all and sundry "It's 4:32 AM, time to change the log file and clean out unused rooms; please exit the chat room for a minute or two. Thank you for your patience."
