Now it’s Stress.
Story by Mark.
Merv stands behind the bar, erect and proud, [Mark here Hung, steady now] surveying the ambience of the Pigs Arms, you know stale cigarettes, spilt beer, those unique fruity flavours however there was something worrying him.
“Granny, I’m worried and stressed” he cries.
“Oh for fuck sake Merv, what’s wrong now. Are you having another shitbox moment?”
For those who failed to read the last highly stimulating, drama packed episode, and you know who you are, yes I see a few hands, you can find out what a shitbox is here.
“Here, have a pill, works for me, just happened to have a sleeeevvveee, hehehe hahaha” crows Sister Yvonne.
“Nah, 50 ml eucalyptus oil, 500 ml normal saline, rubber tube up the arse, works every time and wait till the koalas start humping you” interjects Nurse Barbara as she puffs on a fag, sips a pint, reads the form guide and takes part in conversations. Womanhood, wonderful to watch. “Anyway if enemas aren’t your thing ask Hon, she’s a survivor.”
“Yeah mate” says Hon using Cyberian vernacular “wot’s the problem Merv, car won’t start, fingernail broken, kicked ya toe. I can deal with it mate, been there done that.”
“Well, I read that I’m going to be replaced by Aut O’Mation, some Irish bloke apparently. And I’m getting pressure from my agent who thinks I signed up for too many episodes at the Pigs Arms.”
“So who’s your agent?” asks Hon.
“So what is the most pressing issue?”
“Well I signed up for 20 episodes per year at the Pigs Arms and I’m finding it way too much work.”
“Hey I only got 10” pipes in Angler.
Yeah, us too, come the calls from the crew. “What about you Hon? How many did ewe
getz?” asks Gib W who suddenly appears at the bar. Must let him know that this magic stuff can scare kiddies as you never know they may be watching.
“Er, um, yeah, like, you know, sort of maybe 15…”
Angler calls the crew together. “What do we want?? ” he cries.
“Um, dunno, wot do wheeze want Angler?” says Gib.
“Um, I know EFFALL and we want it now.”
“EFFALL? Nah mate we don’t want eff all, this is for us fellow space travellers, we make a stand together, yeah, another round.”
“No EFFALL(Equally Fair Fiction for All Languishing Linguists).”
So the chant followed four hours after with many a Trotter’s consumed and a happy night had by all. As the crowd faded the chant still echoes.”Wadda we want, eff all, when da we want it, now”, think about it.
Breaking News: Gordon has sent Hung to the scene of a meeting between the management of the Pigs Arms and the Fictional Characters Association. Hung can you hear us,
Yes, look, I’m just going to interview some of the key players as they come out of the building here at Cyberia Central, this is quite a revolt, the characters are threatening strike action if their demands aren’t met. Here’s what Merv had to say,
“…bloody terrible, never knowing one day to the next, ever playing the goon…”
“… shocking. It’s either me or Sister Yvonne in the black underwear, must give Hung a chubbie…”
“…the matter is before the court therefore I am unable to say anything however it’s a fit up…”
