||||||||| It's 10:25 PM, and that means it's time to play BEAT THE REAPER! And here's how our contestants did:
||||||||| Elayne - dead from dengue fever
||||||||| Better luck next time! And now, back to our chatroom, which is already in progress...
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: FL doesn't claim to be a country, but Key West has. In the past they declared their independence as the Conch Republic. They issued passports, minted their on money, etc.
||||||||| Mayor P'nisnose strides up to the podium and speaks: "My fellow Armenians, if you have questions about exorcism, buy the new book "EXORCISM IN YOUR DAILY LIFE", now on sale. Incidentally, so is my vote."
rebozoette: mousey
cease: 67 radio free oz, the iteration after he left kpft in march, 67
PrincipalPoop: you are right cheeseburger in paradise breath
Elmer Ho: time to run - thanks for another evening of snails and adventure
||||||||| Elmer Ho rushes off, saying "10:27 PM? Mark Time is almost on! Where's a radio?"
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Nite & pleasant dreams, Elmer!
DJTweeny: Seems like I heard about the Conch Republic
PrincipalPoop: the golden hind bids you adieu
Beet: Nite Elmer
cease: the reason i know this is my recording, apart from others taylor may have had access to, is that the pattern of the static is familiar from that particular recording an an inexpensive sony tape recorder on a hill just below mulholland.
cease: by elmer
Beet: Elf supremacy
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: They actually blocked the A1A highway into Key West, changing I think it was $2 or 3 for a passport,their money is still honored at businesses even today
cease: i was having reception problems at the time.
Beet: Gandalph smoked
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: I am floored, cease, that you can recognize your recording from the hiss... ;-)
cease: is that liked smoked ham?
Rufus_T_Firetween: ** Dr. Happy Harry Cox says “I was right about the comet! Check out my new DVD set EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG: THE DECLASSIFIED FIRESIGN THEATRE 1968-1975 before it’s too late!!” >> http://firesigntheatre.com/firesale/firesale.php
cease: i'll have 100 grams of smoked salmon and 200 grams of smoked gandalf please
Beet: ham doesn't stay lit
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: How is an actor different from a ham?
DJTweeny: haha
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: A: you can always cure a ham...
PrincipalPoop: where is stretch legs?
Beet: benevolent hipsters
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: toast to better times? what, no jelly?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Mmmm... making me hungry....
Beet: I never heard a moustache before
DJTweeny: Johan Amadeus Myjetski: How is an actor different from a ham? << one can run a radio?
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Hahaha. Yes, but which?
Beet: The cured one
cease: this is one of my favourite firesign pieces. i have been affected by this since 1970
DJTweeny: good question ;)
rebozoette: pea nut
llanwydd: I am an actor and I can tell you the word ham is not well defined
cease: the combination of voice and information is so awesome, it enters its own dimension.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: so true, cease
llanwydd: I had a drama coach who told us once that he would never accuse anyone of overacting and did exactly that to an actor a few days later
cease: i found it odd that my parents ate ham at easter and bacon occaionally but avoided pork.
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Rebozoetee & Llan - HAHA!
cease: japan, where i lived a long time, has a divine pork dish called Ton Katsu, for which you need the best possible pork, as its great beef dishes require the highest qualtiy beef, which outside of japan, is quite rare.
llanwydd: whats the difference, cease?
DJTweeny: some great bits in here for sure, cease
cease: notices how ossman puts music-like influence on words to increase your subliminal apprecation of the information
llanwydd: well, cease, my favorite japanee food is sukyaki (sic?) and some is not made from the best quality beef
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: I really thought I was the only one picking up on that cease
Rufus_T_Firetween: ** Phil Proctor's new book is out! “WHERE’S MY FORTUNE, COOKIE?” >> http://tinyurl.com/y75ntl7
cease: i had sukiyaki in la before i went to japan and you can get minor league beef, still very good in chain resaurants in japan too.
DJTweeny: Kobe Beef is insanely expensive, isn't it cease?
Beet: One definition of "ham": http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=a%20ham
||||||||| Outside, the 10:42 PM crosstown bus from Funfun Town pulls away, leaving lurkingnomore coughing in a cloud of diesel fumes.
cease: but when i was exposed to the good stuff, i really noticed the difference. it just tasted vastly better.
DJTweeny: Hi lurker
lurkingnomore: That last URL doesn't work...
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Hiya, Lurking!
cease: however, liike french food, a lot has to do with the sauce, which is idiosynchratic.
DJTweeny: end of the show, unfortunately :/
cease: the best restaurants guard their best sauces.
llanwydd: Hi , lurking
lurkingnomore: But this one does: http://www.blurb.com/b/8121448-where-s-my-fortune-cookie
lurkingnomore: It came!
||||||||| Catherwood enters and asks "Is there anythynge you want? By that I mean Anythynge You Want To, Shakespeare's Lost paperback Comedie in pre-electronic book form!"
DJTweeny: my link doesn't work?
cease: kobe is famous in the west but in japan there are higher levels. one i love is called Ohmi beef.
lurkingnomore: It was in my mailbox!
cease: ohimi is near kyoto.
llanwydd: yeah, the sauce is usually good but the beef is sometimes far from kobe quality
cease: hi lurk.
lurkingnomore: IT HAS PICTURES!!!!!
lurkingnomore: AND WORDS!!!!!!
DJTweeny: Yeah, something with the URL changed lurker, thanks
cease: when you have great beef or pork with some awesome sauce, you enter into a new realm.
DJTweeny: worked before I made the post
Beet: This is pretty cool
DJTweeny: will have to fix that for next week
cease: our copies are alas, still in the mail.
lurkingnomore: It has it all! Everything that's EVER HAPPENED!
Rufus_T_Firetween: Here's the Amazon link - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/138970503X/ref=as_li_qf_sp_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=ff04-20&camp=1789&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=138970503X&linkId=f4f926787d57bf1868b442aea81697b1
cease: i am on quest to find vegetarian food that tastes as good as the great meat dishes of japan.
Rufus_T_Firetween: I was trying to shorten it
lurkingnomore: go away. i have to read now
||||||||| At 10:46 PM, lurkingnomore hurries out the door saying "Hey, mister ice-cream man, I've got a nickel, wait for meeeee..."
Rufus_T_Firetween: ** Phil Proctor's new book is out! “WHERE’S MY FORTUNE, COOKIE?” >> http://tinyurl.com/y75ntl7j
llanwydd: not hard to do cease
Beet: I have a feeling there is going to be a spike in purchases of Proc's book.
llanwydd: seitan
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: I just tried a meat substitute tonight that was new for me, a fruit from India called jackfruit. Was pretty good!

Beet: I had the hots for Teusday

PrincipalPoop: no, thank you
cease: the monk followed him to his orchard in california and, though not quite converting him to bhuddism, got him to stop eating meat.
||||||||| Nick Danger sneaks in and whispers "Get the scuttlebutt on Box of Danger here, whatever that means..."
Johan Amadeus Myjetski: Luther Burbank & George Washington Carver were outstanding in their field...
cease: my mother went to live with him in the 30s and became a vegetarian, so i was raised a vegetarian, until the cuban missile crisis.
