BONUS RUCKUS: The “Too Cool for April Fool’s” Comedian or Poet Guess Challenge! So much access to great comedians and poets on the internets these days! Sometimes poetry can be so side splitting that you wonder why the comedy shows aren’t banging down their doors. NICHOLAS EARL DAVIS wishes to test this theory and see how “fool”ish some of you may look while guessing. He’s gonna grab lines from stand up comedy specials and popular poems, yuck them in your face, and we’ll ask three players to guess comedian or poet. Guess correct? Get a point. Guess wrong? Lose a point while we shout “fool!” at you. First to three correct wins a frothy prize on us! I pity the fool, verily! Am I right folks?
WE ARE IN A RICE CAKE ALERT! I repeat RICE CAKE ALERT! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org let Miss Emilee know you wish to volunteer snack time. If she has to produce another snack this week, the following week will result in a tasteless, generic, non salt having rice cake! We hate to do it. House band has been killing it recently! YOSH & MIKEY hope the laughs and tips keep coming! Dirty Gerund has gotten our dose of humility last week and is committed to creating new memories for you all to make fun of for years to come! TV’s just not that great on Mondays. We don’t have cable anyways.
