Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling for July 12, 2003
Tom the Dancing Bug by Ruben Bolling "Australopithecine's Night Out" or "NO SHOES, NO SERVICE: Why you don't see more hominids from the pliocene epoch in restaurants" Charley won a free dinner at BUCKA-ROOSTER'S from a radio contest. Charley: I answered my phone "WNXJ #1 Hits" for a year -- and it paid off BIG!! Enjoying his bread basket, Charley is approached by his waitress. Lois: Howdy, pardner. I'm Lois, your Bucka-Buddy. Ready to order your meal? Charley: There's MORE?! Charley eventually decides... Charley: Out of wildebeest AND grubs?! Tell you what...we'll save time--what DO you have? But complimentary grape soda will do strange things to an australopithecine metabolism, and Charley gets impatient. Charley: HEY, LOIS! WHERE'S MY BUCKA-ROASTER?! Instinct soon takes over, and passing Bucka-Rooster staff begin to get the eerie feeling of being stalked. When the moment is right, Charley makes his move... Man: WAAAA! RRRAAR ...and the bounty of the hunt is his! Voice: Hey, Rob! That Chuck Wagon Special was for table 8!! CHOMP CHOMP Man: Help me... It takes a brawl involving five Bucka-Buddies, and some placating negotiations to persuade Charley that his dining experience was complete. Charley: I get a "Bucka-Dawggy Bag"!
