Thank-you to all who came out and gave The Hypothetical Seven a look-see. We didn't expect to have so many quality auditioners come out. We can say without hesitation that there were more than 6 of you who we felt would make excellent troupe members. In the end, we picked only 6 to make sure our group stayed a size (12 members) where everyone would still be able to get enough playing time on stage. If you have any questions about audition results or The Hypothetical Seven, please email us as Thank-you again!

Blame History Tracking Technology Introduced
02.06.03 <LAWRENCE, KANSAS> -- "It seems what's happening is people are getting blamed for the day, and sure, for that day they feel real lousy, but the next day many of these blamees start right back up with the same blame deserving behaviors. It became obvious that we needed to escalate our blaming campaign..."

NRA's agreement to 200% increase in cost of bullets backfires
10.10.02 <WASHINGTON DC> -- As bullet prices continue to soar, the first reports out of Washington show that last months Democratic initiative to sacrifice gun control for bullet control seems to be working, much to the chagrin of Republicans and their NRA bedfellows. Violent gun related crimes in communities around America are down by nearly 25%-1 -2.
      One gunman requesting that his name be kept anonymous said, "It's getting ridiculous. If I want to knock off a convenience store and feel confident about it I need 6 bullets. At today's inflated prices, I can't AFFORD 6 bullets. Now I'm going in with 3.. MAYBE 4 if I'm lucky. .. Now, if things go... awry... I'm not sure if I'll have enough ammo to cover all my bases. So I'm going in edgy and THAT'S how mistakes get made. You want safer crime, then address the collusion going on amongst bullet distributors. It's all trickle down. THEY are the ones killing people... not me.. well figuratively speaking. Unless I was a bullet distributer... which... HA HA HA.. I guess I am. Hey that's pretty cool... I think I've just come up with a new nickname for myself: Hank, 'The Bullet Distributor' Tuttle."

-1 Based on gun crimes in Chanute, KS:
2001 (4 gun related crimes)
2002 (3 gun related crimes)

-2 Statistics do not include gun related crimes at stores that sell bullets where the primary criminal intent was bullet theft.
   2002(15 such robberies of bullet stores)

The Living Glossary
07.31.00 <BUFFALO, NEW YORK> -- Let's face it, the glossary is a second class citizen, the unwanted stepchild of the 'index'.

Sign Of The Times: E-Couples

Eric Davis

07.11.00 <KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI> -- Eric Davis was raised by two honest and hardworking reindeer. His parents being reindeer weren't the sharpest knives the drawer. They saw Eric growing the cave, thought it was their child, and so they attempted to raise Eric as a reindeer. (Latter is was determined that Eric came to his parents when, as a seed, he'd been eaten by his father and subsequently "Deposited" back at the cave.) As a youngster, Eric wasn't allowed to play any reindeer games. No, Eric Davis did not have a bright red nose. (As an aside, it should be noted that the racist impressions left by holiday claymations are quite unfounded. Reindeer children run their games on a strict merit system. You perform, you play. You stink, you ride the bench. It doesn't matter if your daddy is Mayor Reindeer or Coach Reindeer; is no special treatment. If you have blue fur, live a small cave, and are missing a hoof but can jump really high then you are respected amongst your reindeer peers.)...

FFCs - Fist Fighting Conditions
01.31.00 <LAWRENCE, KANSAS> -- often gets mail from readers seeking advice for their fist fighting conditions (FFCs). These fighting problems are varied and dire. Some lack important fight recognition skills. ("When I get hit the nose and the other dude is screaming baseless vitriolic threats at me... is THAT when the fight has started?") Others say they lack the charisma to perform simple goading. ("Excuse me sir, if you don't mind, might we go a few rounds? {long actionless pause} No? Ok.. I COMPLETELY understand.") And still others wrestle with fight disfunction spawned from bizarre childhoods. ("When I was about 18, our de clawed tabby beat me up something awful. Since then I just cant seem to pick fights with tabby cats. I try -- I go up with the complete intention of knocking one off the fence, or starting the car real quick so I can catch a sleeping tabby under the wheels, but next thing I know I'm holding the thing my hands talking baby talk to it. You GOTTA HELP ME!")...
