Blue Blistering Barnacle had for years been collecting century old railroad ties, rails and old rail cars. He hopes to recreate The Underground Railroad.

Boson tried to get a finder's fee for introducing BBB to a salesman at The Boring Company. They just laughed and brandished what was almost certainly not a flamethrower.

TruCelt recently uncovered a conspiracy to replace all of the world's billiard balls with wax paper, and lives in constant dread of cuestick-carrying thugs putting him/her in a side pocket somewhere.

Annie-Xmas is signing up for the U.S. Space Force because she’s often been told she is a space cadet.

BBB has translated all of the Tintin comics into Urdu, Basque, Gaelic, Swahili, Xhosa and Sindarin, and recites them at length to unwilling, frightened children.

Elendil's Heir had a bit part playing a waiter in episodes of “Seinfeld”, “The Sopranos”, and “Star Wars”.

Annie-Xmas is being sued by the Hallmark people and may have to change her moniker due to its similarity to the title of their 346th holiday movie: "Any Christmas."

Leo Bloom is jockeying for position at Sun-Times and after he works from sanitation engineer to editor, then launch into state level school boards, he plans to implement his plan to establish SD as the only text book for all high schools and undergraduate schools in his state and later in the nation. Godspeed, Leo Bloom.

Blue Blistering Barnacle’s scientific investigations have determined that due to God’s careful deliberations prior to decisions and actions, that Godspeed is roughly 1/25 the speed of sound.

Blue Blistering Barnacle was originally known as Red Rascally Rabbit until the Loony Tunes Corporation obtained a cease and desist order against him. So he changed his name to Blue Blistering Bugs Bunny.

Every night Mr. Zox has that dream where he's riding on a motorcycle naked with a supermodel, and they're yodeling Top 40 songs, until he meets Cheese-Flavored Godzilla, who bites off his arm and the supermodel's leg, forcing them to unite their bodies Power Ranger style into SuperZox, and after that it just gets silly.

burpo the woder mutt is actually a swinging door, and has upwards to two dozen co-eds walk through him per decade. It would be more if he got that job in the local college he's been trying to get.

Annie X-mas is the current (secret) ruler of Minneapolis. She is currently preparing to retaliate with her patented charm offensive.
