2 birthdays being celebrated among the pax – Donkey Kong. YHC is pretty sure he’s been 26 for 2 years; but at 27, still the War Baby nonetheless. Matlock also celebrating a birthday and talked a bit of junk. Huge mistake by YHC for not punishing the two birthday boys appropriately. Will do better next time.
Not a ton of mumblechatter amongst the pax. Not sure if that was due to O2 deprivation, but a lot of the pax were gasping…and that’s a good thing!
Namearama again produced another gem for the SCLT pax – Plantain, who hails from the 290 square mile Caribbean island of Dominica, was EH’d by (you guessed it) Bananas. Solid work. Bananas. Plantain. He had no choice but to headlock him. PETA is a solid moniker for Mr. Furr as well. Look forward to having you guys with us again soon…perhaps tomorrow at DV?!! There’s plenty of room in Bananas’ clown car for another.
Hope YHC’s first Q at Skunk Works did not disappoint. Strong work by all the pax. Aye!
