You may have noticed that I have not been posting much about my illustrious musical career as of late. The reason for this is simple. Evil Wiener, my band of so many years, was recently purchased by Baskin Robbins.
You see, a few days ago I visited one of Basin Robbins’ many conveniently located parlors and was overtaken by the hypnotic reveries of a mixed Love Potion # 31 Pink Bubble Gum milkshake . Whilst deep in the blissful throes of frozen dairy wonder I was approached by a man in a pink leisure suit, and to make a long story short Evil Wiener was traded for another milkshake. It seemed like a good deal at the time, but when Chuck was informed that from this day forth he would be playing drums with waffle cones he was none too pleased. Nor was groves when he was handed a bass that resembled a giant pink spoon.
They locked the three of us in a very cold room together, and told Chuck and Groves to practice. I was given the responsibility of composing jingles for all 31 flavors, and was just settling into my task when the walls trembled and a portly man in a tie-dyed shirt burst through the sheet metal surface which, as it turned out, was all that separated us from the outside world.
“Hello, my name is Ben” he said “I’m sorry Jerry couldn’t make it, but he got a little crazy with some reverse chocolate chunk last night.”
Ben then opened a container of Turtle Cheesecake, sampled a bit, snapped a photograph, and jotted down a few words in a note pad. He repeated these actions 30 times. Within three minutes he had finished, and he motioned for us to follow him through the hole he’d made in the wall. Soon, we were outside again on a sunny street that we now call freedom.
Evil Wiener is safe for the moment, but negotiations with Baskin Robbins are still underway. All I can say is that I hope our next gig will not be in a freezer.
