"Yeah'

those recall letters make pretty good cigar lighters, and paper airplanes, too. Say, we gonna have a Easter egg hunt this year? Or, are we just gonna get drunk and forget about it as usual?"

cracked open a bottle of Ipswich Ale. *Pffsst! Gulp Gulp Gulp* "Aaahh, man, that hit the spot. Ya know, I wouldn't worry 'bout the *BURRRPP!* 'scuse me, I wouldn't worry 'bout the brake problem.

Mouse peeks out from the pouch of the kangaroo and yells to YB "Hey! Stop!!!! Don't make me drag you down! I want in!"
Blacksheep, too busy with his cigar and brownies just laughs.
Mary Scott yelled at YB to stop and pick up Mouse "You know she's the one who makes those brownies you love so much! Harold, Sussex, Sheep...get that stuff OUT of your cigars...you KNOW it's for the brownies!"
"Come on guys, can't you let me in? You don't want me to get ole' Ratchet after you do you?" Mouse pleaded.

Hey youse all

I've had a brainwave. If I dilute all this jam and strain the pips out do you reckon we could run the camper on it. I reckon the fumes from the exhaust certainly be different what do you reckon blacksheep. Wake old Stuei up and ask him he seems to know everything and am sure come up with a suggestion or three.

"Good idea Harold." says Blacksheep. "Let's empty out this ice chest and see what we can conjure up, eh?"
Blacksheep, Harold and Sussex guzzled down what was left of the beer, then started pouring stuff into the ice chest......

Quick as a flash Blacksheep was on his hands and knees licking it up, Shame to waste it he ses. Harold and Sussex tried some too.

Blacksheep took the wheel and put the pedal to the metal, crossing the ocean in the blink of an eye, and soon they were cruising down the beach.
"Gee, getta load of that pair would ya. Aint that the plumpest pair you ever seen?" says blacksheep.
