Drink of the Week for Feb 8th, 2004: Thunderbolt

What we had to say

Perhaps this week is the week for doing all those things that you've been putting off for 3 or, oh, maybe 12 years. For example, your car probably needs an oil change, those shelves still need to be put up, and that thing that your dog buried in the backyard still needs to be exhumed, and if necessary, the appropriate authorities notified. As for us, we are tying up loose ends on a lot of unfinished projects, not the least of which is our "bio-diversity" project involving a jellyfish and a cow. The goal of this project, (nicknamed "Mr. Stubbs"), is to perfect the ideal candidate for Spike TV's "Most Extreme Challenge". We figure that's the only TV show that Mr. Stubbs is suited for winning on - because even when you lose at the MXC, you're still a winner. Or is it the other way around? Hmm... we'd better check our notes.
