Need to take care of a few things before getting down to business today. I still want to know just exactly what is with all this crazy nonsense? It never ends. On a lighter note, isn't it funny how the pictures make this DJ light look like it fills an entire room. It's like a portable sun. Heheh.

In more pressing matters, it's Start Your Own Business Day! The Runner-Up award goes to:

For Rent, Smog Test Only Building - $1800 (Normal Heights)

This actually doesn't seem like a bad deal for starting one's own smog inspection business. Overhead seems low enough, at the very least. I don't have a car due to expenses and whatnot, but I was amazed to find out that there's no vehicle inspection in California. Apparently, only eighteen (18) states have manual inspections. Crazy.

Inspection stickers aside, I have to employ the "Rules Flagrantly Disregarded in the Name of Art" clause and go outside my neighborhood for the winner:

BOUNCE HOUSE FRANCHISE - $35000 (san diego)

Yes! Let's all chip in and construct a bounce house fortress on the outskirts of town. The years between the "you must be THIS tall to ride the ride" lines are some of the most fleeting, and this is the perfect opportunity to take it back to the glory days! I am so ready to get in the bounce house and do some bouncey-bouncing.


Jeez, I'm lacking in inspiration today. Let's play a game. I'll start a story, and anyone who wants to chip in can do so via comment to finish.

"In the Bouncey-Bouncey kingdom there was a Bouncey-Bouncey King who waged pitiless war on the Land of Funhouses, which lay beyond the Enchanted Forest. So brutal were the Bouncey-Bouncey King's endless campaigns against his hereditary nemeses in the Land of Funhouses, that the Emperor of the Midway decided to intervene..."

Go team!

Bouncey-Bouncey King, or B.B. King if you will (and yes, he plays a mean blues guitar... and has diabetes), heard word of the Emperor's plans but was far from concerned.

"Zee midway eez exactly what eet eez... a midway. Not zee beginning, not zee end, just somewhere in zee middle."

B.B. King was also from Germany.

"Nothing happens in zee middle. It all happens on zee ends."

So B.B. King shrugged off the Emperor's threats as empty and went along with his day full of inflating things. In King Midas fashion, whatever B.B. King touched turned to funhouses made of air. The benches became airy and bouncy, and so did the trees and the rides, including the ferris wheel. His wife... full of hot air.

After a few days the Emperor's threats were completely gone from B.B. King's mind. Unfortunately for B.B. King, the Emperor was gathering his Army of Average Things with plans of deflating B.B. King and his Airhead minions once and for all.

"In King Midas fashion, whatever B.B. King touched turned to funhouses made of air..."

"His wife... full of hot air."

Both of which could explain what happened next.

(Sorry, I found that & couldn't resist.)

Whoa. I... uh... I mean, I don't... hm.

Does anti have any ability to write, or just post youtube videos? The story was going along so interesting and well with the other posters adding to it.

I smell foul play here.

Pike, the smog test only building is making me awfully naus-talgic (like the new portmanteau? created in honor of NH through the B & W) for the cassette tapes for teachers only.

Uh-oh. Where did I put that...

Oh, here it is.

DUCK, Daniels!!!
