Hey, how's it goin'? Let's take a look ...

*DESK CHAT HIGHLIGHTS*
Toward the end of the monologue, Johnny Dark comes out and pretends to play a trumpet. Actually, he *tries* to play it, but nothing comes out. After a few moments of getting nothing but muffled sounds, Johnny gives up and says, "Eh, screw it." He's outta here. This was a nice use of foreshadowing.
After magically levitating his coffee cup, Dave spends a few moments chatting with Rupert. Tonight we'll be playing a little something called 'How Many Snakes Can You Find in the Hello Deli?' Hey, what happened to the AFL sticker? And Donz's sticker? Was that a sticker promoting a certain brand of bottled water? I'd be willing to bet that the beverage company is responsible for this.
In case something happens tonight, Dave's brother Raul is standing by to take over the Show. Excellent ... Could Dave's participation in a pre-taped remote be next?
The camera sure is shaky tonight. It's Dave Dorsett's camera. What's going on? Oh, Dave D. is "letting one of the neighborhood kids" run the camera tonight. Dave D: "Get the shot of that bald guy behind the piano." Paul: "It's nice to have a hook."
Now it's back to Rupert's for 'How Many Snakes Can You Find in the Hello Deli?' The contestant is Poonam. Unfortunately, there's no time to play. Oh, and a snake handler gets bit by one of the dangerous asps. He's out cold on the floor. But there are no losers on 'How Many Snakes Can You Find in the Hello Deli?'
The waitress is ready to take Dave's order. He'll have to think about it. Hmm ... Does Paul want anything? Well, he'll split something with Dave. As long as it doesn't have onions. Nearly everything on the menu has onions! Dave decides he's not going to split anything with Paul. Dave says ordering with Paul is like ordering with (staffer) Nancy Agostini. Later, Dave is handed a note. For the record: Nancy Agostini doesn't have a problem with onions. Dave ends up going with the BLT. Does he want mayonnaise on that? Yes. What about lettuce? Um, yes. Paul will just have coffee. Question: What's the deal with tomatoes? I don't even like tomatoes. And I don't believe that there's a real difference in taste between 'fresh' tomatoes and ... whatever other kinds of tomatoes there are in stores. So there.
7-Eleven President & CEO Jim Keyes is back with an exciting announcement: the big 7-Eleven/'Late Show' promotion has been extended and expanded. Now they're giving away $1M, all thanks to Dave! This is very exciting. Afterwards, Paul once again wonders whether this guy is actually the president & CEO of 7-Eleven. Dave supposes it's possible.
We watched her grow up on TV's "7th Heaven." The film is "The Illusionist." It opens Friday.
What was the deal with the dancers pretending to play the trumpets? They weren't even making an honest effort to fake it, assuming that's what they were going for. Surely they didn't think people bought the idea that they were actually playing those things. Eh, the point is: it was pointless & ridiculous.
- TTL: 'Bill Clinton 60th Birthday Plans'
- Act V - Alan: "There's lots more 'Late Show' coming up after these commercials, so stick around!" The camera lingers on Alan a little too long; he gets annoyed, telling the cameraman to get off him. Alan eventually gets up and puts his hand over the camera.
Hey, I just got invited to a 'shrimp boil.' What the hell's a shrimp boil?
I'm outta here. I need to spend some time this afternoon finishing up my weekly 'end times prophecies' newsletter. (We live in troubled times, friends. Don't you just wish we could go back to the good old days of the 1950s?)
