General Dysfunction: actually meant goodnight E and DJT and all who gathered here for a great thursday eve
||||||||| General Dysfunction says "Catherwood, call me a cab." After the obvious joke, General Dysfunction exits at 10:54 PM.
||||||||| It's 10:55 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| EWeston - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Beet - dead from intense demonic possession
||||||||| ThatsHerTrip - dead from jaundice
||||||||| ''Bob'' - dead from the common cold
||||||||| shoes for the dead - dead from jaundice
||||||||| Charlie - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| 10:58 PM: Joieoie jumps out of the hall closet saying "I've been listening to all of you talking about me for the past half hour!"
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 11 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters with Hemlock Stones (Genuine!) close behind, grumbles something about disrupting his 11:07 PM tree-stunting plans, and dashes off to the sitting room.
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): Why hello, deer friends! A warm Thursday evening to all of you even if you don't have the horns -- as many do not.
||||||||| Chick Lambert fades in and says: "I have no idea who this Friedstein Theatre is, but they 're honing in on my territory over at Duke of Madness Motors. Give 'em the what for, Storm!" "RUFF! RUFF!"
||||||||| It's 11:10 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Joieoie - dead from pneumonia
||||||||| Lil - dead from Globner's disease
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): Yes, I'm over here in this tree suit! Flotsam thought it well for me to try it on! It turn out that I haven't really gained much weight!
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): Sorry, "turns." My editing has decayed from my Eton days quite a bite.
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): Flathead and I are anxious to have Catherwood visit us in London -- but not at the same time as Nick's visit obviously.
||||||||| Catherwood says "It's exactly 11:12 PM!"
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): According to my sundial it is something like 4:12 AM. What's with you Americans?
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): It's a good sundial! My friend, Indiana, dug it out of a tomb in Egypt -- so he told me.
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): In any case, Flatman and I are enjoying our numerous Firesign Friends in our London home. There's plenty of room; as one fellow Brit likes to say, "We'd love to take you home with us!"
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): And don't worry about the cooking! We don't typically serve English fare! Flotsam can cook Indian cuisine quite as good as anything you have ever eaten! He can cook Italian quite well -- and also can cook gluten-free!
Hemlock Stones (Genuine!): Well Dear Heads, we look forward to seeing you this summer! Many returns!
||||||||| Hemlock Stones (Genuine!) departs at 11:22 PM, singing "Toad away, toad away; toad away, toad away! Where do you go when you're toad away?"
||||||||| It's 11:25 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Ralph - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| It's 11:40 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Rogrr - dead from the common cold
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
||||||||| Catherwood walks in wearing his pyjamas, yawns, and mumbles "It's midnight here in New York city"...then he falls over and starts snoring loudly..
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 1 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 2 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 3 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| Catherwood enters the room, strikes a gong, and bellows "THE TIME IN NEW YORK IS 4 O'CLOCK", then silently exits.
||||||||| 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."
