I’m here with Snap Clawson, a local lake resident, to speak about this weekend’s tragic events. Mr. Clawson?
WELL, LIKE I SAID, IT’S SHOCKING, AND OBVIOUSLY ANY SENSIBLE CRUSTACEAN HOPES SOMETHING LIKE THAT NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN, BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY IT’S NOT ABOUT ME AT ALL AND I THINK OFFERING MY UNSOLICITED OPINION, EVEN JUST SOME ROTE OUTPOURING OF PRAYER OR CONDOLENCES, ONLY CONTRIBUTES TO THE PROFOUND NARCISSISM OF THE MODERN AGE. IN A TIME OF SENSELESS TRAGEDY I THINK IT’S BEST TO JUST GO HOME, TURN OFF THE COMPUTER OR THE TV AND REFLECT ON THE EVENTS FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS WHILE PROFESSIONALS GATHER ACTUAL FACTS, INSTEAD OF IMMEDIATELY TOSSING YOUR TWO CENTS IN THE RING OR CLIMBING UP ON A SOAPBOX. I’M NO EXPERT … ON ANYTHING REALLY … AND I THINK THE WHOLE SITUATION AND THE WAY IT’S HANDLED SHOULD BE ABOUT THE FAMILIES, WHO PROBABLY JUST WANT TO BE LEFT ALONE IN THEIR GRIEF RATHER THAN BOMBARDED WITH POINTLESSLY HORRIFIC NEWSCASTS OR INTERNET MEMES THAT WON’T DO ANYTHING TO BRING BACK THEIR LOVED ONES. IT JUST SEEMS MORE RESPECTFUL TO STAY QUIET AND GET TO WORK ON CHANGING THE LEGISLATURE OR THE CULTURE THROUGH LEGITIMATE ACTION RATHER THAN MAKING BOILERPLATE FACEBOOK STATUS UPDATES OR INTERVIEWS LIKE THIS ONE.
THAT BEING SAID, I DO HOPE THAT FISHERMAN ROTS IN HELL.
Indeed. Thanks so much for that exceedingly rare opinion. Back to you, Jim.

THEN MY WIFE’S LIKE, “RICK, I THINK THE MAGIC’S GONE,” LIKE THERE’S ANYTHING I CAN SAY IN RESPONSE TO THAT, SO SHE’S PROBABLY GONNA DIVORCE ME SOON. I BUST MY HUMP FORTY, FIFTY HOURS A WEEK. I GOT AN ULCER. WHO’S GOT TIME TO MAINTAIN “THE MAGIC” RIGHT? MAKES ME WISH I HADN’T SPENT SO MUCH MONEY REBUILDING THE NEST, THOUGH. AND THE TIMING! THE KIDS ARE ALMOST IN COLLEGE. I WAS LOOKING FORWARD TO HAVING A LITTLE PEACE AND QUIET AROUND THE PLACE. A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP, MAYBE. IT’S WORTH THE TUITION JUST TO BE ABLE TO PUT MY TAIL UP AND HAVE SOME SEEDS AFTER WORK, BUT IF MAGGIE’S GONNA SPLIT WITH MY SAVINGS I CAN JUST KISS THAT DAYDREAM GOODBYE. SHE’LL GET THE WHOLE TREE AND I’LL END UP LIVING IN A BUSH DOWN BY THE FREEWAY, KICKING HALF MY PAYCHECKS TO THE UNIVERSITY OR THE MORTGAGE. IT’S NOTHING BUT HEADACHES, THIS WHOLE FAMILY THING. ONE AFTER THE OTHER! YOU’RE SMART TO HAVE STAYED SINGLE. I ALWAYS SAY THAT. AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED ON WORK! I SWEAR, BETWEEN THE NEW PROJECT MANAGER AND THAT IDIOT IN TECH SUPPORT I’M ABOUT READY TO RIP MY FEATHERS OUT. IT’S TORTURE IS WHAT IT IS. DAILY TORTURE.

HELEN, THOSE KIDS ARE BACK.
WHAT ARE THEY DOING, HONEY?
WELL, TO ME IT LOOKS LIKE PRETTY GRAPHICALLY SIMULATED SEXUAL INTERCOURSE IN POSITIONS AND SPEEDS THAT WOULD PROBABLY GET ‘EM SENT TO THE HOSPITAL IF THEY WAS NAKED, BUT JUDGING BY THE VOLUME OF THE MUSIC I GUESS IT MUST BE DANCING. IF YOU CAN CALL THAT MUSIC.
LEAVE THEM BE, EARL. YOU CUT A PRETTY RAUNCHY CHARLESTON AT THAT AGE, IF MEMORY SERVES.

OR … HOMEWORK. OR TELEVISION, MAYBE.

WILL DADDY BE AT HOME WHEN WE GET BACK?
NO. I’M AFRAID HE WON’T, MARGARET. I SHOULD BE HONEST WITH YOU. IT’S NOT A BUSINESS TRIP. YOUR FATHER MET A STEWARDESS AND LET HIS LOINS GUIDE HIM RIGHT OUT OF OUR LIVES. THE FOOL. THE DAMNED FOOL.
WILL HE BE HOME FOR CHRISTMAS?
NOT UNLESS HE WANTS TO GET HIS WORTHLESS, FILTHY LITTLE SCHMECKEL SLOWLY REMOVED WITH AN OYSTER KNIFE.
WHAT?
NOTHING DARLING. MOMMY’S JUST RAMBLING.
