you know, the situation repeats itself around the planet...

in perkins a couple years ago, we warned the waitress NOT
to give the steak knife to our drunk mildly spooky friend
nut no, she wanted her tip and provided the poor sot with
a huge serated blade which he turned over and over in his
hands and casually stuck in the arm of the guy next to him

strangely, unlike the denny's case, the psycho guy was casual
and the viewing audience went ballistic

i guess that's the difference between denny's and perkins...
not an actual difference between people, just how they
act in these pockets of ginsu-centric universes

"Yeah, I thought I saw you guys pass me at the intersection," says the

cop, casually.
"Yeah," I say back.
"What was that number? he asks, casually.

I give him the plate number.

"That was a green Chevy Nova, right?" asks the cop, casually.
"No, it was a small white hatchback of some sort," I say back.
"Oh," says the cop, casually, and rolls up his window and talks on the
radio for a while.

We go back inside to pay the bill, and there's spattered blood all over
the front area of the restaurant, and the area where they were sitting
looked like a small bomb had hit it. The guy that was getting stabbed
repeatedly was moving really slowly to the car, and with the amount of
blood that he lost, I would say that he probably ended up dead, especially
since the car was headed not to a hospital, but into an industrial park.
My adrenaline was hardly raised, and neither was Jim's.

We had a little talk about that, and neither of us could figure out why we
weren't really even shocked at seeing this stabbing taking place right in
front of us. Weird. Anyway, I gotta go now, cos Jim and I are sitting
around drinking iced tea and playing Doom.

Whoa, wait, didja ask for the free meal? I mean, what other
reason is there to go to Denny's than to get yer free B'day
meal?

Oh, ok, so you *did* get the free meal, with the usual
aftereffects.

Probly you weren't too surprised because a) You're in Deleware(don't ask me what
that has to do with anything...) and b) It was in a Denny's.

Hi. I'm changing the subject of this thread so I can tell everyone that
I got the stuff I ordered from the Foundation.

Send $1 to:

SubGenius Foundation
P.O. Box 140306
Dallas, TX 75214

and tell 'em to send you your stuff! (Don't forget to enclose the money,
'cause that's why people get their stuff...)

I'm so glad you asked! I ordered and received the following:

1 SubGenius Media Barrage #12 tape
1 The Hairs in "Bob's" Ears tape
1 Black Hole of Carcosa paperback
1 The Story of Everything Bad childen's comic book
1 Club No New Year's devival video (this is still on back-order)

The two tapes are good. If Nike asks Rev. Stang to do a commerical,
I think he would should do the "Bob" Pokes Me in the Eye With Love
cut of the music tape. The other high-light is Mr. Science Lecture
Series Vol. 1 #1: The Mutron from the media barrage tape. It explains
how the universe is composed of one black hole and no more than half
a dozen Mutron particles. One of these Mutron particles passed close
to Earth 50 million years ago and caused the dynosaurs to evovle
rapidly into super-intelligent big lizards. They promptly used their
great intellect to teleport themselves off the planet to other worlds
in the universe. But they are coming back. I'm not sure whether
the dynosaurs are returning before or after the X-ist's arrive.
Maybe the X-ists *are* the dynosaurs and when they return they'll
find that mammals have overrun *their* planet and destroy us (that
is, unless J. R. "Bob" Dobbs can talk them out of it...)

Every SubGenius needs to buy these Barrage Tapes. Your encoding
might wear off if you don't listen to them on a regular basis.
And if your encoding wears off, YOU MIGHT *revert* _back_ 2 NoRmAl!!!
