Ep 33 - Bla Bla Bla, Words Have Meaning

The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Throng that day. The episode was 33,  Pete hadn't his guitar to play it looked like another stinker it would be. And when Squidge failed to show and the audience the same. a sickly silence fell upon the show and SK would be to blame.

A business closure update preceded the sports theme, as did also a potty break, and the former was of Sparkys and in the latter a leak would take. So upon that stricken Throng grim melancholy sat, for there seemed but little chance that SK's act would not fall flat.

There was inhibition in SK's manner as he stepped up to the mic; there was disgrace in SK's bearing and his volume began to spike. And when, responding to the stories of Chinese New Year and the Superbowl, it was clear his lack of preparation had surely taken its toll.

"Fraud!" cried the maddened Throng, and questioned where was Colin, The Titans of Mavericks had just finished up and SK's face was swollen. They heard his voice grow stern and cold as he told the story of the Big Games.   A sneer had come from SK's lip, "Don't try to verify anything he claims."

Oh, somewhere in this favored land the sun is shining bright; the band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light, and somewhere men are laughing, and enjoying a round of golf; but there is no joy in the bomb shelter — SK Morton is talking frolf.
