Rodney’s physics Geek’s Bottom of The Barrel (I used mine all up over a Wizbang anyway)

::cue Odd Couple music::
On November 13th, Felix was asked to remove himself from his place of residence. That request came from his wife. Deep down, he knew she was right, but he also knew that someday he would offer her up as a sacrifice to the Prince of Darkness. With nowhere else to go, he arrived at the grave site of his childhood friend, Dolly Madison, and raised her from the dead. Sometime years ago, Dolly had been killed by her parents and buried, with pennies on her eyes. Can a divorced man and a recently created undead minion of Satan share an apartment without eating each others’ brains or sewing salt into each others’ mouths?

The Monday Contest has already sold a gross of snake oil.

    Bottom of the barrel? You underestimate me. Next time I will aim for the “under the barrel” award.

  2. Dave Schuler says:

    I’d like to thank the Academy…

  3. There’s a barrel?

  4. Rodney Dill says:

    Actually I always considered the ‘bottom of the barrel’ a coveted position. I usually save it for my captions, which can’t be judged anyway, sometimes I use ’em up elsewhere or just run out of steam.

    there’s a barrel?

    more of a hogshead really.

  5. How’s the vegemite down there?
