As MOST of you know, I used to own a “Pet Shoppe.”
Well actually it was just a Tropical Fish Store
In Nacogdoches, Texas.
Tropical Fish is all we sold. (and a few-odd Crustaceans–just for fun)
This Monty Python bit cracks me up.
Customer walks into my store.
“My guppy died.”
(I had a three-day guarantee on any fish I sold–it was a gimmick, but I honored it.)
“Madame did you put the chlorine removal drops into your ‘guppy-tank?”
“The whaaa? ” she said.
*Heavy sigh* from me
“Ok. I will give you a new guppy and some free chlorine removal drops. Use them this time.”
I think she then told me to go fuck myself and said something about going to Ben Franklin’s up the street.
Benny Franklin sold guppies back in them days.
(And apparently their guppies were made of sterner stuff. )
And hopefully Benny Frank would throw in some Chlorine Removal Drops—but this Broad was probably too stupid to understand how to use them—the process and procedure was above her capacity of understanding.
“Bon voyage,” I said to her back as she departed my life (Hopefully Forever.)
“All the Reasons Why”
Not really related, but I like it.
So I just drop it in.
Not certain why.
If you contort your mind a little, it works.
