a tennis story to last for generations

if you haven't been blown away by the latest trend sweeping BHS...i'll keep you up-to-date.

josiah collins wants to make a pro-war float for the 4th of july parade. he's trying to get as many students involved as possible.

josiah made a schedule/list of items that he needs. his ultimate goal goes something like this: (remember, as founders of The Bread Party we neither support nor oppose his decisions...this is not for political controversy)

He wants to "rent" an army tank...have it driving down the street...while towing "enemies of freedom" in a cage...and freeing "soldiers" at the same time.

So first item on the agenda: find a tank.

I used bundy's cell phone...dialed 411...and tried to get the number for camp ripley. it seriously took 10 minutes...the automated system didn't work and they had to hook me up to a live operator. even he had trouble finding the telephone number for the base. BUT, after precious minutes had wasted away, we received the number at last!

Finally, it was up to Josiah to call up the base and ask for the use of a tank. The conversation went something like this:

Josiah: "Hello?"
(Camp Ripley Secretary babbling...)
Josiah: "Yes, I'm having a float in the 4th of July parade, and I was wondering if I could borrow a tank."
(Camp Ripley Secretary talking...)
Josiah: "Uh huh. Well, what if you have someone drive the tank for us?"
Camp Ripley Secretary: "I'm sorry. That sort of thing just doesn't happen."
[End of conversation]

I figure I'm allowed to get slightly political in the comments:

If Josiah makes this anti-war float, I will throw a molotov cocktail into it as it passes by. Or slash the tires. Anything to keep him off the road.

I think the idea of "pro-war" seems so straight dirtbaggish I rejected it subconciously.

you cant slash the tires on a tank. also, you can't hug your children with nuclear arms.

maybe if we give equal amounts of bread to max and josiah it will remedy the situation. (think BREAD party)

and tom: bread can slash the tires of a tank...AND hug the SAME time.

while towing "enemies of freedom" in a cage

So who are you going to get to play Bush and Cheney in these cages anyway?

Actually, the number one candidate for "enemy of freedom" was Kubas in a turban. Unfortunately, he's in the band.
