Johnny T. Bone and Yella Fella wait the appearance of Deathdog, King of the UBA. They wait for Deathdog in fear . . . of more bad jokes.
About this creation
“Hmmm, this looks nice. Have to take those hideous pictures down, but other than that it’ll do until I redecorate. I can put my throne over there, and the root beer machine can go where the lamp is . . ."
“Welcome, your highness. This is your office, where you’ll work (hopefully) to improve the lot of the people.” “WHAT!!! You actually expect me to work? ‘Work for the public good’ – that’s a diaper load! That might have been true of a president, but I’m the KING. I don’t do that whole work thingy anymore."
"Now begone, I need to watch the backs of my eyelids.”
A few hours later, Deathdog finally emerges to a waiting public. “People of the United Bricks of America, I, Deathdog the first, promise to rule with a benevolent hand and a humble heart. We face troubling times. Our economy is based on plastic – in fact, everything about us is plastic, including my rather cute tushie."
“To meet the challenges facing me . . . I mean us . . . I will not dissolve the Congress, although I reserve the power to completely ignore whatever ‘laws’ those fools might try to pass. To get to the point, henceforth all taxes are payable directly to me as I am the only one wise enough to spend your tax dollars wisely and efficiently in your best interests . . .”
“Our first public investment should be into some shrubbery and a monument commemorate me and this important day in our history!”
While Deathdog speaks, Johnny T. Bone and Yella Fella slip away.
Yella Fella: “We’ve got a base of operations set up in a remote part of town. It’s near an abandoned industrial complex . . .”
Johnny: “A remote part of town – abandoned industrial complex -- isn’t that all a bit of a cliché?”
“Of course it is. The writer’s too lazy to be original!”
His highness is a man after my own heart. I too need a monument in my image and all taxes paid to me. I'll spend it on that nice girl that's just doing that to get through college and... you know what, it's not important what I spend it on. That's my business. I'm the one in charge! And don't you people forget it! (I too am hooked on this series... can't wait for the next one) ~ Chris.
