% <Klaproth> Tuesdays are expired coupon day.
% <Rancid_Pickle> Sorry, Klaproth, your McD's is next to the crematorium and there are pipes connecting the buildings. Not falling for that one again.
% <Klaproth> That's only for the dollar menu.



Rancid_Pickle changes into bear costume
<Jet-Poop> Eww, sounds so dirty

Rancid_Pickle will open the case of his cell phone and let the crows pick out the shiny bits until only the husk remains.
<Clockmaker> But in Glasgow, you communicate via semaphore by waving drunks in different-colored tracksuits?
<Evil Catullus> I think waving drunks in tracksuits would get me fired.
<Old_New> You're employed?
<Evil Catullus> Yes. I work with the surly, unfriendly youth
<Rancid_Pickle> Oh, I didn't know you were in politics, EC.

EDB wakes up long enough to sniff Rancid_Pickle.
Rancid_Pickle wonders why EDB has his snoot in the crotch of his tattered trousers...
<Rancid_Pickle> "Down, boy! You too, EDB!"
EDB has swallowed Rancid_Pickle. *B R A P *
<EDB> bleh, tastes like brined socks.
Rancid_Pickle wonders why he never noticed just how sexy EDB was...
Rancid_Pickle eggs avalyn!
Rancid_Pickle eggs bookreader!
Rancid_Pickle eggs edb!
EDB has swallowed egg. egg is good food!

<lizardinlaw> E2D2, is Rancid_Pickle a bot?
<E2D2> lizardinlaw: It could be. Ask in10se if it is.
<Rancid_Pickle> runs on electricity.
<lizardinlaw> giggle
<Rancid_Pickle> ...and lots of coffee.


<Stasik> That was horrible, but at least there's only one rancid pickle


<andycyca> so Rancid Pickle can pickle a yodeling pickle, thus we now know that if Rancid Pickle could pickle pickles, Rancid Pickle could at least one pickle pickle
