As we return to today’s episode, the semi-conscious residents of the whimsical town of Southbridge are victimized by ether waves that penetrate their tin foil helmets.
In contrast to their normal long-term loss of short-term memory the sinister forces of the O’Zone Vandals are beaming recollections of moments past into their vulnerable noggins.
With characteristic lethargy their memories are compelled to recall that a mere two weeks ago they were awakened to the fact that their unelected overlord, the Town Mangler, CrispyClark, had found a new haven which to inhabit. Soon they would be left to allow a coterie of subjects favored by the first citizens of the long table to conjure a new messiah.
However, little noticed was the fact that the very night his imminent departure came to light, another lurking time bomb was hinted at by Lord Crispy. Such a prospect arose in a brief exchange with First Citizen Vandal near the close of the biweekly show of democratic posturing. Let us tune in on the telepathic feed as it is beamed into the collective crania of the hamlet’s denizens by The O’Zone:
Ahh yes! Just as his foot was inching toward the door Lord Crispy let drop that another fouled Easter Egg was about to be cracked open for his soon-to-be-former subjects. This rancid legacy would be in keeping with the parting gifts left by his predecessors Interim Lord Jack the Heel and His Royal Roundness Clayfeet Carlyle.
Be sure to tune in for the next episode of Carpetbagged Again Monday, November 18 at 7 pm as we approach the dramatic climax of this story arc when the clown council takes up the Presentation of the Landfill, Casella and Tighe & Bond.
Until then let us take solace in imagining what a bonfire there would be if airport fireworks ignited Mount Trashmore.
