The Feesh were orf today, which was just as well because school reopened and Macondo’s roads, transit system and centers of alleged education were all once more awash with masses of squirming larvae. Just a reminder, as if we needed one, that children are horrible.
However, Michael Hill, suzerain of Scrooge McLoria’s brainstem trust, confessed in a wrenching interview that, yes, indeed, the Rainbow Warriors are engaged with the Barves front orifice in talks to make Jeff “Frenchy” Francouer a Feesh before the August 31 deadline for being able to play in the postseason. Frenchy, who hits lefthanders more occasionally than he hits righthanders, will team up in a pontoon with Chris Johnson at first base in what stockbrokers like to call a “float.”
My guess, of course, is that with or without him, the team will be playing not much more on October 3rd than their favorite music videos.
At any rate, as Feesh fans breathlessly await what passes as a “blockbuster” (an archaic term originally meant to describe a two ton iron jacketed gravity bomb popularized by the Royal and US Air Forces during WWII) here in Macondo, you can count on Fan Interference dot Calm to report the facts to you as quickly as we can make them up. Stay tuned.
