I think there’s a ban on bbqs around here

Avatar 9:15pm coelacanth∅:

it's kind of weird that i didn't know monday was a holiday and i haven't smelled any barbecue cooking but none-the-less i was craving a veggie burger, which happens well less than once/year. i just bought veggie dogs, veggie burgers and panini so melinda if you will eat highly processed meat mimicry i got you covered.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:16pm Ike:

I brought rubber ducks and vegan armadillo strips! But don't expect the real armadillos to strip. Only vegan armadillos do that.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm melinda:

I forgot that Monday is a holiday, that means I start working an hour later on Sundays again.

Firecrackers might be permitted

I am hearing muted firecrackers right now.

Let's make it a party game then. You cool with an Uzi?

Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:39pm melinda:

@katharsis please do
Avatar 10:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Ann Briggs is great! I heard her parents put her in the crazy house because she wouldn't behave.
Avatar 10:43pm coelacanth∅:

i never heard/read that but i wouldn't doubt it. she was a bit of a wreck, emotionally, i guess. (which sucks for us because she abandoned the business abruptly)
hopefully she's much happier in her elderyears.
