Like Always At Andre's Banana Bar, The Award Ceremony Had Its Moments!!
Before I Get Down To Business Just Let Me State For The Record —
I "draw into the mouth by contracting the muscles of the lip and mouth to make a partial vacuum" At Judging Contests!
The Three Miscreants (me) had a very hard time picking winners, finally, Andre stepped in to force the issue. Last night Andre threatened to cut off Grumpy's, Pubby's and Anony's bar tabs and to demand immediate payment of all outstanding funds unless they settled this.
Well, let me tell you, that got both their attention and reaction!
This guy finally opened one eye long enough to pass me a note;
"So, without further ado, a drum roll please" —
"Ahem!" I said, "a drum roll please"
Andre tosses a not ripe banana at the stage, which bounces off the floor tom-tom,
hits the cymbal before striking the sleeping drummer in the chops.
Startled, the drummer throws his sticks in the air before starting a drum roll with his fingers.
"Um, yeah, thanks." Shaking my head, I read from Grumpy's note. The first Award, in the category of BITEM – Comedy, goes to;
(drum roll ends with a cymbal crash)
