Customer needs

June 30, 2010

TONY
“With school being out, I’m losing some of my best customers for the summer.”

PHILIP
“How’s that?”

TONY
“Summer holidays. Kids need some time to get away, so you can’t really blame ’em.”

The gods must be really crazy

June 28, 2010

PHILIP
“I forgot to ask you about what you thought about the G20.”

TONY
“Well, if you ask me, that G20 is one big waste of money. You know, they spent a billion dollars for that meeting. It’s crazy. Crazy. Just think what you could do with a billion dollars. It’s really crazy.”

Encore, encore

TONY
“Oh boy, was it hot yesterday! You know, you never remember how hot it’ll get come the next summer. If you’re like me, you get surprised every year.”

How many times?

June 18, 2010

TONY
“So how are we doing on the visits to the blog?”

PHILIP
“Well, we’ve had almost 228,000 visitors since we started up the blog. Not bad, eh?”

TONY
“You’re not kidding. I figure I could probably take the rest of the year off if I got one-cent for every time someone visited the blog.”

Taste

PHILIP
“So what’s the last thing that you did hear about Bruce?”

TONY
“Someone told me that he’s in Montreal¬† in detox. The only other choice they gave him was Penetang so he he decided to go to Montreal.”

PHILIP
“Why Montreal?”

TONY
“Well, for one thing, their food is better, no offence intended.”

Inside the jungle

June 13, 2010

PHILIP
“Someone asked me about Bruce, you know, the homeless guy who sometimes would make trouble in Alternative Grounds. Do you know what’s going on with him now?”

TONY
“Nothing in a while now. I’ll do my checking with my jungle telegraph and get back to you on that, if you know what I mean.”

On the double

June 8, 2010

TONY
“Phil, how about I buy you a coffee this morning?”

PHILIP
“Now that’s an offer I can’t refuse.”

TONY
“That’s the idea, if you know what I mean.”

Working on a funny farm

June 3, 2010

TONY
“Did I tell you ’bout the time when I worked on a farm? I used to ride this special cow as if she was a horse, and I’d round them all up.”

PHILIP
“Come on, you can’t ride a cow like that. I used to work on a farm too, you know.”

TONY
You can if she was rode by the kids when they were growing up. So she was OK to ride. Anyway, it was funny as hell when you saw a big guy like me herding up cows while I was sitting on a cow myself.”
