SHOCK THERAPY ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA!

It was Bombs Away at 7th and Montana this morning as an Eccentric Nerr-do-Well made the scene carrying a contraption that resembled an Explosive Device. "Holy Mary Mother of God," I said, "Get a load of what just walked in. We're done for!" The Nerr-do-Well, a man in his mid-thirties with long, scraggly black hair and a ski hat, took a seat at the counter and plugged his mysterious device into the wall. "Is it ticking?" I asked. "No," replied Robin, "But you really need to go in for a closer look." I did ... and wasn't the least bit surprised to find the gentleman conversing with himself. "She's singing, I tell you," he said, repeatedly. The device, it turned out, was a Black & Decker Electromate 400, a portable power supply offering up to 450 amps of "instant starting power" and a built-in inflator. Maybe he can use it to give himself a little shock therapy ...!

The never do well is smart actually. He is using free electricity to boost a power source so he doesn't have to pay. (Hugs)Indigo
