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 June 28, 2012 officially open!"... and then, he retires back to the vestibule...
||||||||| Catherwood strides in with a trumpet, plays a fanfare, and proclaims "Nine PM on Thursday, June 28, 2012 - I now declare alt.comedy.firesgn-thtre's chat officially open!" -- then he looks around at the empty room, looks at his watch, and mumbles "...am I early?"
||||||||| PaisleyPillTweeny waltzes in at 9:00 PM carrying an obsidian door knocker.
||||||||| Catherwood stumbles in and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Principalpoop', just granted probation at 9:01 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Principalpoop: oh tweeny
||||||||| Catherwood tiptoes into the room, and intones "Announcing 'cease', also known as 'Nancy' -- the time is 9:02 PM" -- then he slowly retires back into the anteroom...
cease: greetings
Principalpoop: oh canada
cease: yeah we have our day this weekend. maybe the jays will win
||||||||| Catherwood strides up and snorts derisively "Presenting 'Dexter Fong', just granted probation at 9:04 PM", then leaves hurriedly.
Dexter Fong: Hiyah Friends

Principalpoop: oh fong
Dexter Fong: Cat, Tweeny, Poop
PaisleyPillTweeny: Hello, Dear Friends
Principalpoop: are the vancouver Jays, the V-Jays?
cease: good to see your otherwise evil supreme court did something good today
Dexter Fong: The V-Jat JV's
Dexter Fong: Jay
cease: no, jays are in toronto. just a minor league team here, despite having 2.5 million people
Principalpoop: minor v-jays? sounds illegal
cease: but we do love jays in bc
Dexter Fong: Minor league? Like the old Negro League?
Principalpoop: no, miners, like colorado
cease: double a, the vancouver canadians. i forget which major league team owns them
Dexter Fong: Ore ore ore
Principalpoop: double a? they are young....
Dexter Fong: eh? eh?
Principalpoop: i had a girlfriend who was a double A, had to shop in the girls department...
Principalpoop: more than a mouthful is a waste anyway, as I always said
Dexter Fong: Good Lord Ahmightey, I'm hungry!!
cease: the triple a team for the jays is in vegas.
Principalpoop: i was reading about winnipeg in sports illustrated while my car was repaired yesterday

Principalpoop: you could do cni on thursdays tween, couldn't you?
PaisleyPillTweeny: I take it cease that if British Columbia decided to seceed you would not be opposed?
PaisleyPillTweeny: Interesting idea, P, but I'm not set up for live shows just yet
cease: i can't see that happening.
Principalpoop: our country was almost named columbia
PaisleyPillTweeny: I've heard that
cease: newfoundland maybe, they used to be a separate country. quebec also possible but not out here
Principalpoop: that would make more sense than amerigo vespuchi
Dexter Fong: Poop: Wasn't it supposed to be Vespucciland?
cease: god bless vespuchiland
PaisleyPillTweeny: When I get set up to do live shows for Radio Free Dishnuts, I'll give it serious consideration, P
Principalpoop: sounds like a little motor bike

PaisleyPillTweeny: any news on the FST front?
Dexter Fong: Mensch in my name in Sheboygan

Principalpoop: sheboygan, sounds like a buddy hacket song
Dexter Fong: And that was before transgenderation
Principalpoop: way before
Principalpoop: ok, how about the back or side of FST, any news?
Dexter Fong: well, silence is better than bad news...or is it bad news?

Dexter Fong: Oops that's station K P E P
PaisleyPillTweeny: just a couple of minutes of comedic flash
||||||||| "9:28 PM? 9:28 PM!!" says Catherwood, "Merlyn should be here by now...oh, THERE you are!" as Merlyn enters and sits in front of the fireplace.
cease: fiore is always good
cease: hi merl
Principalpoop: a goverment of the corporations, by the corporations, for the corporations...
Merlyn: flash crowd, eh?
PaisleyPillTweeny: So it would seem, P
Dexter Fong: Hi Merlyn
PaisleyPillTweeny: It's so funny how some people expect the government to reign in the corporations, when the corporations own the government
Principalpoop: ok, what will we sing and dance to? 'we're bringing the war back home...
PaisleyPillTweeny: a catchy little number
cease: true, tween. just as true here
Principalpoop: this land is made of mountains
Dexter Fong: I'm brining Celia ward back home
Dexter Fong: This land is made of fountains
Principalpoop: how is pete?

Dexter Fong: *big*
Merlyn: no real news cat
Principalpoop: i recall those long, skinny cigarettes, a silly millimeter longer

Principalpoop: ok, give us the fake news
cease: and i'm still waiting for the download or dvd judith promised of the kirkland show and proc mentioned would also happen with the la show
Principalpoop: like caviar, I cannot tell the difference
PaisleyPillTweeny: That's great to hear
Dexter Fong: Well Cat, they seem to operate on a different definition of "soon"
Principalpoop: part of the obama change we can believe in, be patient
PaisleyPillTweeny: Maybe in time for Christmas presents?
cease: duke of madness came together fairly quickly
Merlyn: taylor would probably have a better idea cat
cease: i hope it's selling well
cease: i'll ask him, merl
Principalpoop: isn't that copyrighted? GE has better ideas?
Merlyn: GE brings good things to life
Merlyn: "good things" being my dead cat
Principalpoop: ahh yes, like dr frankenstein
Merlyn: so now I have a zombie cat
cease: your cat was ressurected by ge?
Merlyn: "fire --- BAD! water --- BAD!"
Dexter Fong: General Electrode
Principalpoop: did he come back with the helocopter blades attached?
Merlyn: zombie cats don't like either
Dexter Fong: firewater heap good
Merlyn: "flying --- GOOD!"
Merlyn: my hovercat is full of eels
Dexter Fong: landing???
Merlyn: or maybe just worms
Principalpoop: worms in the hovercat? ewwww
Dexter Fong: Giant moon worms
Principalpoop: yes on the bright side, it is feast time for the giant moon worms
Merlyn: yes, nobody does a worm's eye view anymore
Principalpoop: and we could easily with the new tiny cameras....
Merlyn: now we just need worms with artistic talent
Principalpoop: cloaca
Dexter Fong: drone worms
Dexter Fong: heavily armed
Dexter Fong: with cameras
PaisleyPillTweeny: Sounds like a great band name - The Artistic Worms
Merlyn: Pupae Picasso
Principalpoop: cloned worms

Principalpoop: we will give them arms
Dexter Fong: SEE! de roms have arms

Merlyn: tunnel under the enemy
Dexter Fong sings, "Are the stars out tinight, I don't know if it's cloudy or bright, cause I'm a wo-rm
Merlyn: do the worm
Merlyn: but look out for people doing the bird
Principalpoop: the first worm said "kiss me You fool" the second worm said "fool, I am your other end"
Dexter Fong: And that was another reading form The dasys of our Wormhood
Merlyn: That would be Oroboros
Principalpoop: the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out...
Merlyn: Oroboros Badinov
cease: good one, merl
||||||||| Outside, the 9:48 PM bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving Elayne coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
Principalpoop: and natasha eelvinsky
Elayne: Oy! Just got home. Evenin' all!
cease: hey elayne
Dexter Fong: The scary big brother of Boris, I assume?
Elayne: Internet connection spotty, I'm piggybacking off downstairs neighbor.
Dexter Fong: Hi E
Principalpoop: just flew in the door and boy are your arms tired?
cease: you wont be coughing now your health insurance is assured
Merlyn: hi E
Merlyn: brb pizza
Elayne: Big tree that fell down 2 houses away last year was never cleared, and some bad gusts knocked it out further 2 days ago...
cease: wow
cease: i remember the trees in your neighbourhood
Elayne: ...leading to a telephone pole cracking, and now there are cables all over the place in back and on the side of our house.
Principalpoop: scary
Elayne: Turns out, Cat, that the house 2 doors down hasn't been lived in for 2+ years, and we never knew...
Elayne: Anyway, the downstairs neighbor's cable works but ours is out. No phone, no internet...
Dexter Fong: They were such a quiet couple
Elayne: BRB
Principalpoop: i thought he worked nights and she did telemarketing...
Dexter Fong: Yes Poop, the Hispanic-Pakistani couple
Principalpoop: right, that is why I never expected them to put up holiday decorations...
Dexter Fong: Portorico day, and ramadan
Principalpoop: that is just food, or no food, not decorations I think...
Dexter Fong: Come to new york and learn my firend
Dexter Fong: Everything is decoration
Principalpoop: let me have my white bread american bigot dreams
Dexter Fong: didn't you mean bigold?
Principalpoop: oreos were always bi

Dexter Fong: and the milk was always white...cept when it were chocolate
Principalpoop: ahh mormons, ok
Elayne: Anyway, so Lillian (my lovely downstairs neighbor) has cable/internet/phone and we don't, so I'm piggybacking on her for the internet at least.
Elayne: And I worked until about 8:30 so I just got home. Thursdays are becoming worse and worse for me.
Elayne: However, next Thursday I'm on vacay so I should be here no problem.
Principalpoop: when it turns out sweet lillian is a drug dealing pedophile numbers racket dealer, you will regret this
Elayne: Dex, turns out I already read at least 2 of the 3 books you gave me. Probably read the last one as well, I'll have to double-check.
Dexter Fong: Okay, sorry
Principalpoop: you have good taste fong, and knew what E would like, don't apologize
cease: enjoy the vacation, el
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 10 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
Dexter Fong: Good taste!! Why I can sit on some dairy queen and tell whether its twisted or not
cease: oh, it's your 4th. we tend not to notice it up here
Principalpoop: would you rather E said she put the books in the kitty litter tray where they belong?
Dexter Fong: Poop: How's your pron collection
||||||||| 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 Elayne2 falls out at 10:01 PM.
Elayne2: Sorry folks, very weak connection on this piggybacky thing.
Principalpoop: still crowing, still going strong, like dolly
cease: does your iphone work?
Elayne2: My last 3 sentences never made it, I see.
Dexter Fong: Oh, you got the advanced lifelike dolly huh?
Principalpoop: you are lucky you have a connection, otherwise, cold turkey or war traveling like honey...
Elayne2: Anyway, it can't really handle this server, so I should go and blog while I still can.
Dexter Fong: Tell the truth, that crowing ..well, it don't really grow on yah
Elayne2: Next week, all!
cease: where is stones tonight?
Dexter Fong: Night E
Principalpoop: good luck E
cease: hope you get your connection back, el
||||||||| "Hey Elayne2!" ... Elayne2 turns, and sees Bradshaw approching with the handcuffs, and is dragged away, screaming "it's only 10:03 PM, I don't have to go yet!"...
Merlyn: cya E

Principalpoop: over there, over there
Dexter Fong: I see him! Let's get him!!

Principalpoop: OH M, what have you done? have you no mercy?
Principalpoop: give her a disease, don't just murder her hehe
Dexter Fong: How many HP
Dexter Fong: HPs for that kill Merlyn
Principalpoop: her bandwidth was low, not much HP
Dexter Fong: True, and not resistant to lightning either
Principalpoop: like doing somebody in the gray, helpless
Dexter Fong: doing somebody in the gray ==?
Principalpoop: faded?
Merlyn: She had it coming
Principalpoop: almost faded away anyway
Merlyn: She was a burden on the chat society
Principalpoop: true but brutal M
Dexter Fong: Ah
cease: she'll be back next week
Dexter Fong: Like a zombie, Cat
Principalpoop: she can respawn?
Merlyn: I probably won't be, I'll be hobnobbing with 2 of the Firesign Theatre
Dexter Fong: Only her doctor knows
Principalpoop: oh, sorry hobnobber
Dexter Fong: Hobnob well Merlyn, enjoy
cease: osman and proc coming to min?

cease: i remember bergman coming to chat looking for you, merl. but you were gone and so was everyone else

cease: i'm watching blue jays game and there is a fan who looks amazingly like keith richards in the front row
Principalpoop: too soon?
cease: am reading his Life right now. was on the top 10 most likely to die list for 10 years in the 70s
cease: still alive
Dexter Fong: It's never too soon with the dead, they can't tell the time...kinda like worms
Merlyn: actually, one odd thing I'm going to mention is that he didn't tell most people about his leukemia, and he's the only Firesign member who could hide chemotherapy
Principalpoop: you kinda like worms too?
cease: good one, merl
Principalpoop: LOL
Merlyn: he went totally bald around the time of the Weirdly Cool PBS special
Dexter Fong: That's the bald truth Mer;yn
Merlyn: and he had the mildest type of leukemia, which can go 10-20 years, so it really could have gone back that far.
cease: he was bald when i saw him in 69
Merlyn: The other guys might know from Lily when he got it
Principalpoop: His head and face are a hippie ear ICON, all of them
Principalpoop: era
Merlyn: He went from "bald" (fringe of hair) to totally bald
Dexter Fong: Beyond the fringe, so to say
Merlyn: Not cook, bergman
Merlyn: mixed up your peters there
Dexter Fong: Peter, eh?
Principalpoop: bald in front, you are a thinker, bald in back, sexy, bald in front and back, think you are sexy...

Dexter Fong: of what?
Principalpoop: i see they are trying to read his brainwave, the current setup not working as good
cease: oh yes i've heard of that
Merlyn: a famous British comedy team was unintentionally involved in operation mincemeat, care to guess who/how?

Dexter Fong: sympathizer?
Merlyn: nope, but they were 16 and 17 at the time
Principalpoop: they provided the mince?
Merlyn: not stars, but in show bidness
Dexter Fong: They were the meat
||||||||| Hemlock Stones tiptoes in around 10:29 PM, trying to avoid Catherwood because of last year's "unpleasant incident."
Principalpoop: they provided the meat?
Merlyn: playing in a musical review in London
cease: and speaking of funny limeys...
Dexter Fong: Ah an expert arrives just in time, hold that answer Merlyn
Merlyn: no meat changed hands

Principalpoop: speak stones, let not the cold silence of the chat still thine voice
Dexter Fong: Then the Stones...like some kind of Biblical plague
Hemlock Stones: they could have been vegans for all i know

Hemlock Stones: the kif which reached the UK was usually dark green leaf and finely chopped
Dexter Fong: Yes please
cease: no more hints. we want mints. elliot mintz at least
cease: hemlock, the shit keith richards had was never of such pedestrian quality
Principalpoop: no more buds? already broken apart and cleaned???
Merlyn: M&W were part of a London show that the people conducting Operation Mincemeat saw just a few days before setting the body out to sea, to get dated ticket stubs to put in the dead man's pocket.
Principalpoop: bong ready huh?
Merlyn: this also explains the comedian's lament "I never saw so many dead people sitting up"
cease: neat, merl
Dexter Fong: That's really interesting MERLYN>>>WOW
Principalpoop: believe it, or don't
cease: sounds like mission impossible, the brit version
Merlyn: Hitler may have seen photocopies of the ticket stubs
Dexter Fong: I think he's got an autographed Playbill
Principalpoop: back when photocopies were photo copies
Dexter Fong: "He had" bombings you know
cease: what do they call playbills in Billville?

Dexter Fong: Guees I'll try to park a little early tonight, the available spaces lessen as it gets later

Hemlock Stones: poop, Honey says please add her to your skype list, she lost you at the last skype change
Hemlock Stones: she is zuni.blueskym Taos NM
