Fortunately no one got sprayed!

We didn't need the tomato juice after all!
"Whew, what luck!" Mary Scott said. "Thank you Jesus!" Mouse chimed in.
"I guess I should be grateful that all that skunk did was chew my slipper! Now, what are we going to do for some fun?" a tired YB asked.
"FUN???? I thought we WERE having fun" says Sussex.

"Dang man, I didn't know you had that in you!" Sussex said to YB.

It's bad enough the womenfolk never leave me alone, always bugging me, but now, even a stupid SKUNK thinks it needs to cling on me? Good grief!" YB scorned.
"Hey, look on the bright side, since it loves you, it's not spraying you!" Mouser gladly put in her two cents worth.

and ran towards Mary Scott.
"Get to prying Mouser!" Mary commanded anxiously.
"Ah c'mon girls, you KNOW there isn't any money in that trunk! Stuie would never have let it be THAT easy!" Sheep yelled out across the campfire.
The girls, as always, ignored the guys and set to opening the trunk.
They pried, and pried, and finally it popped open!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Whoo hoo!" yelled Mouse.

The girls all ran down the stairs, laughing like crazy. Mary Scott locked the door behind them..."Those nincompoops think THEY are going to have the best ride??" Mouse whispered.
Pretty soon the guys found out they had been skunked, and started coming downstairs...only to find out the door was locked, and the bus was moving!
"Who locked the door??!!!!" Sussex yelled.
"I can't get to the fridge!" Blacksheep muttered.
"WHO is driving this bus??!!!" YB screamed in fear!

YB and the rest of the guys, ' come with me' and went down the front stairs. The gals didn't know that on a Routemaster there are two sets of stairs, one at the front for going up and one at the back for coming down.So the guys and gals were all down together, there was plenty of room that old bus will hold 40 passengers. Sussex says hope whoever is driving knows this has a right hand drive else they will have a hell of a stretch to the steering wheel. Where did you get this old bus says Mouse, from the Zoo says Sussex, it was in the monkey house. Maybe it's a gorilla driving, chuck mouse in to find out, gorillas like mouses so she'll be okay. Not on your life says Mouse, Ratchet says I'll go with young YB and into the driving cab they went. Then.....

Anyways there's an anchor under the stair well, that's the emergency brakes. Sheep got hold of the anchor and chucked it out, 'Thanks Sheep' says YB. Sussex can't speak for laughing, he says you should have tied the end of the rope to the bus BEFORE you chuck the anchor out.

The gang rushed to the stairs 'Wait' calls Sussex, with this they all turned to see Sussex put a grid on the tank, then a frypan and chuck 6 eggs and a packet of bacon in as well. 5mins later he tipped the lot onto a plate and started eating it.
