A “get here quick” call from Glibs HQ. They need links help, since Don Brett has a little, uh, labor trouble to take care of. Ah, the life of a business owner.
Looks like a skeleton crew – Mad Scientist and OMWC are in – but SP is hiding in a walk-in freezer. She has threatened to not come out until September. Mex is on vacation, so no chance I could bail out and beg him to do the links. Jesse is down at the loading dock, yelling at some trucker about 55 gallon drums. Banjos and Sloopy are off – they are the morning shift anyways.
“What’s up fellas?”
“Looks like you are lucky, Swissy….no Cryptid All-Stars today” OMWC said with a snicker.
“Very funny…I’ve got this – why are you two in?”
“Speaking of cryptids – STEVE SMITH is back” said Mad Scientist with a grin, pointing to the opposite door.
I knew I made a mistake turning to look. That was instantly confirmed by the thwipp of a launcher and the sting of a dart in the neck.
I hate getting tranq darted. Where am I anyways? … some sort of large, armorglass surrounded cell?
“Sorry about that Swissy – but no way you would let us try this on you , um, voluntarily.” OMWC had put on his ‘sincerely regretful’ face. Damn.
“Well, the two of us being scienticians of the highest order, we are trying to see if we can transform people into SMITHs. You go first.”
“Yeah, you are the epitome of stolid, bougie America – so if it works on you, it will work on anyone. Dad, employed, church goer, longtime military guy, lives in the Midwest, etc. etc… Perfect test fodder.”
“Not funny, guys. Now open the door so I can get to the links.”
“Hey we left you a laptop.”
“No worries – we gave a lab mouse a dose of the same thing – before you even. He’s fine.”
LET SWISS OUT!
“Hey”, Mad Scientist grinned, “Looks like it is taking effect.”
FINE, SWISS MAKE LINKS.
- 2020 not BAD ENOUGH. Have MOAR WAR?
- LOSE $750m I would do MORE THAN “THROW PUNCH” OR “CRAP ON BED”!
- Some GOOMBA PAY WAY TOO MUCH for GAME!
