Going from bladder to worse, the Terrier drank Perrier which left through his derriere when it lifted its leg next to DeFrosty, the retired snowman.

"Euwwww!" said the ladies on either side of him as they started backing away real fast. "Yellow Snow!", which wasn't helped by the fact that DeFrosty had been drinking beer, which was causing the same effect.

"I tried to get him to stick to vodka", said the alligator behind the bar to Mmario, who was cooking a rack of auroch ribs in the kitchen......

The Hairy Simian Chorale, the Yule Gibbons brought back to entertain again this year by popular demand, enter a door under a sign that says Apiary to change into their choir robes and come running right back out chased by a swarm of bees.....

Sandra In Sydney slaps the guy next to her who had just passed her a note, because she'd thought it said "Where's yer womb at?" and thought she was being harassed.
"Harass, my ass!" yelled the offended stranger. Realizing her mistake, she quickly apologizes and buys the stranger a drink. Sandra looks around the room and says, "Oh my God! Where IS my wombat?"

A booming voice from above said, "IT'S NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY! I'M JUST HERE FOR MY SON"S BIRTHDAY PARTY......."

A loud splash and a big spray of green Jello gives her a hint......

Did it jump, or was it pushed.....or PULLED, for that matter?......

A group of Liberal Folkies, of whom some of which unfortunately had gotten jello liberally splashed upon them, ran toward the Jello pit screaming at the squid, "SAVE THE BEES!". The Squid, being a gentle soul at heart, gently hurled and re-routed the swarm of bees unhurt in the direction of the sweetly sticky protesters, who beat a hasty retreat to try to hide behind the Christmas tree, which looked like a safe enough place, with a few of those with multiple stings and faces already swelling up running into the dispensary and locking themselves in. Those who'd run for the tree proved too big a crowd to all use it as a Tannenbaum Shelter and threatened to topple it......

A plan was desperately needed to lure the swarm back safely into the apiary and the hives, but how?.....

And with the bees all buzzing in the area of the tree, who would be brave enough help keep the huge Douglas Fur erect?......

Without understanding, an expanding cloud of a plan in the center of Severn's mind took over his body as he walked over to automatically play a recording of 'Do the walk of Life' by Dire Straights . As if by instinct Severn unconsciously knew this song had the ability beyond all other songs to cause life forms to release Oxytocin in such quantities it could even cause Obama and Trump to embrace in sincere friendship.

Even the bees felt the oxytocin and became calm and compliant. The love in the room was overwhelming- He got the action, he got the motion
Oh yeah, the boy can play
Dedication, devotion
Turning all the night time into the day
He do the song about the sweet lovin woman
He do the song about the knife
He do the walk, do the walk of life
Yeah, he do the walk of life...woo hoo

Meanwhile, the Christmas tree, which was beginning to topple from the crowd of protesters pushing and shoving to hide behind it. In rushes DeFrosty, the only one among us who a bee couldn't hurt, in time to catch the tree and prop it back up, with some help from a duck and two bats from the rafters who grabbed the top of the tree. DeFrosty had been outside patching up the yellow spots with fresh white snow. The crowd cheers the snowman and the duck and the bats. The alligator tending the bar sets up vodka for all of them

There is the matter of some decorations that had fallen off the tree to the floor and need to be replaced.

The Squid is present, but where is the wife and the Squidlets?

Ducks and bats scatter in all directions, as the Yule Gibbons from the Hairy Simian Chorale, having spent time drinking after the bees had chased them out of the apiary, were not freely swinging from the rafters and making Tarzan calls. Being a trained choir,they were making them in perfect harmony.......

Half of an aurochs is a bit like half a brownie. If you cut a brownie in half, you don't have two half-brownies. You have two brownies, each half the size of the original. The indivisible nature of brownieness extends right down to the near-molecular level. It is a Platonic ideal.

A brownie stands in counterpoint to half a sandwich. You can't make half a sandwich. You must make a whole sandwich and cut it in half. A sandwich made from one slice of bread, folded over, is not half a sandwich. It is a half-sized sandwich.

Now, my I please have a barbecued aurochs sandwich and a large brownie?

Tin whistlin's me forte, on the flute I'm the same
At the squeeze-box there's none can me equal.
I whistle for breakfast, and pipe for me tea
I play me ould flute twenty-five hours a day.
And I can't understand why so many folk say

Well, I once had a sweetheart, so fair and divine
She said that she loved me, I thought she was mine.
She'd the shape of a fiddle and her hair was so fine
For bowstrings you'd sure find no better.
She told me forever her love would endure;
She asked me to kiss her, me answer was, " Sure.
And why not? It's good practice for my embouchure!"

Well, this lass was persistent and her efforts soon led
To a room in a pub with a big double bed
And she said," Do you know it is time we were wed? "
I said, " Is that a reel or a hornpipe? "
Well I took off my clothes and down on the bed sat
Says she, " Won't your whistle go longer than that?"
I said, "What takes your fancy, is it F or B-flat? "
I'm champion at drivin' 'em crazy.

Well, a little while after, she says to me, "Pat,
I think that your whistlin' is making me fat."
And, a few months being over, she up and begat
A wee fellow, the image of me.
Well, at three weeks of age he could lilt a few tunes;
At a month he was batterin' on bodhran and bones.
And now he's the master of chanter and drones
He'll be champion at drivin' 'em crazy.

Well me wife she soon left us, and all in due course
For "musical cruelty" she got her divorce,
And despite all our vows of "for better or worse,"
I'm left all alone with the baby.
Well, he's Ireland's best piper by quite a long chalk;
His fiddling's unequaled from Sligo to Cork,
And, as soon as he learns how to walk and to talk
He'll be champion at drivin' 'em crazy.

No Butt about it.

And as Beardedruce pointed out. While we debate the imponderable
the rabble have scoffed the lot! And there's a lot of aurochs even today. And you will have to be quick to get any brownie(s).

here's an interesting aside. FireFox queries the spelling of 'aurochs' (auroras anyone?) in plain text, but it doesn't within HTML TAGs eg italics!

It's not just Firefox that calls the word "aurochs" into question. It's spell-check software in general. That such a significant, noble, and fine-tasting beast should have the reality of its existence questioned by a bunch of ones and zeros is an abomination! We must institute a campaign to raise the public profile of the aurochs high enough that the gods of spell-checking have no choice but add it to their lexicons.


Listen up, you spell-checking fascists!

"Aurochs" is a real word!

The reason why I called you here is to reveal the killer of the auroche, said Detective Donuel. Who Why, Where is but the simplest questions. It was Bruce who found the remains. It was Dave who theorized the brownie dissection, but there are other suspects we need to include so we can eliminate one by one until only one remains!
Having considered the factors that either enable or compel large body sizes to evolve, I now ask how these factors can explain the observed historical pattern in era-level and Phanerozoic-level global gigantism. In particular, (a) what distinguishes the post-Paleozoic interval (especially the second halves of the Mesozoic and Cenozoic eras), during which all ecological categories witnessed the evolution of their largest representatives, from the Paleozoic? and (b) what accounts for the retreat from global gigantism of terrestrial animals during the Cenozoic while maximum size in most marine categories reached its peak during the Late Cenozoic? Who is capable of murdering such a large animal???

Every year as long as I've been coming here, I order Mmario's House Special sandwich Auroch On Roll and some of the Cajun food that the bartending alligator brings in through the alley gate, courtesy of Louisiana chef Michael Rodeboadacheaux, and I've never noticed any ill effects.

The door to the beach opens and in comes Mrs. Squid and the Squidlets, who immediately eye the Christmas Tree and get into a circle around their ringleader Billy The Squid. Hang on to your belongings, folks anr watch over your coats and hats, because they tend to want to decorate the tree every year with ant loose belongings they find.....

Their mother, tired of watching them after a long day at the beach, goes over to the time clock, punches out for the day and yells "Squidding Time!. Somebody, puh-leeze give me a drink!". The alligator mixes up three Lurchin' Urchins, her favorite, and puts one in each outstretched tentacle.
She goes over to her husband to tell him that it's HIS turn to watch their brat pack, but he just says, "Come over here and meet my new friend."

The wombat is looking at the bats who were going to teach this overgrown so-called bat to fly, but all those drinks must've jammed their radar, for unlike the sober bats, they start crashing into things, as they swoop erratically around the room. One knocks Rap's hat off his head and immediately, a squidlet tentacle grabs it and Billy The Squid disappears into the shadows before the still slightly dazed Rap can even turn around to look for it.....


"I'm not s ure I want to do this", the wombat mutters to himself. He is distracted by a tentacle tapping him on the shoulder.
"Hey Wombie, I want you to meet my better half.".....

Not all the squidlets ran for the wombat's pouch seeking a feeling of safety akin to that of a non-bat's womb. Billy the Squid and Squid Rock have been stashing not only Rap's plumed hat (as well as Severn's and DeFrosty's hats), various purses, watches, cell phones, walking sticks, scarves and whatever else they've found loose, in back of the Christmas tree, and they silently motion to one or two other squidlets that are still running loose to join them. It's decorating time again!......

There's more than enough to keep everybody else occupied. One of the wildly swooping drunken bats crashes into a freshly made bowl of the alligator's own recipe orange colored Carrot Juice-based "Rabbit Punch", which, as the bowl slides off the bar and towards the floor, hits everybody below their belt right before there's a sound of shattering glass.

"It's OK, I've got it!", cries DeFrosty, who luckily always carries a broom with him. The alligator passes him a dust pan and says, "Yeah, but what about all that spiked carrot juice?"
"Don't worry", says the snowman. "We just need some rabbits. I'll just reach into my magic silk top hat and......HEY! WHO STOLE MY HAT?"
Severn, holding the dust pan notices that his is gone, as well.....

The choir, upon hearing the quest for somebody to set up drinks for the house, breaks into:

"Round, round, get a round
Who'll get a round?
Get a round, ooo-ooo,
Who'll get a round....

......Maybe it's the fact that somebody left the beach door wide open to get a little more heat in the place ...


The shaggy dog, who like all of his kind gets much more talkative as soon as he steps outside of a bar for some unexplainable reason, walks up to the Lawn Moor, who is singing a strange carol of some sort to himself:

"My kind of town, Chicago is.
My kind of doc, Zhivago is.
My kind of friend Iago is.....
NOT!......."

....and being quite impressed by his traditional music, he asks him, "Do you know the "Theme From Mondo Cane"?, but before he can turn around to answer, the choir, who DOES know it, sets out to prove it......

When that song is finished, the shaggy dog asks the man sitting on the lawn if he knows '"Mary Of The Wild Moor", and he just points to the name under the heart tattoo on his left arm, says "Long story.", hangs his head, breathes a heavy sigh and sheds a little tear. One keen-eared gibbon overhears, and the Hairy Simian Chorale starts singing it anyway.....

I'm sorry, my friend" said the shaggy dog. "I didn't mean to cause that. By the way, what's your name?"
"It's. Les." said the Moor. "What's. Yours?"
"It's Harry." replied the dog, "Actually, because I bit my master once to wake him up from a terrible hangover. "
"Hmmmm. Makes sense.".......

Severn, wondering how the Micks just added to the mix got here looks outside, and hearing a "Clang! Clang! Clang", he sees the Tra Li car pulling away, going back to the car barn to go out of service and be parked among the Rows of Trolley for the night......


Rap stands beside the Christmas tree, still searching for his hat, when the stiff breeze coming through the open wall brings a familiar looking feather floating past his head, and he looks up.....

The breeze blows DeFrosty's magic silk top hat down from its precarious perch near the top of the tree, and it falls pretty hard with a THUMP!, jarring loose a dozen rabbits from inside.
"That's funny", said the snowman, scratching his head (and giving it a rather lopsided effect as the flakes fly loose) "I only packed two of them with me when I left."....

Mrrzy's purse starts to fall off the tree, but the strap catches on a branch, it turns upsidedown and the contents spill on the floor.
"The secret's out!", cries Janie. "I'd have never guessed you carried one of THOSE in there!"....

Most of the pilfered items remain in the upper reaches of the tree. Over in a corner, Billy, Rock and some other squidlets are rolling on the floor with laughter......

Someone asks the Squid who the fellow with the single dorsal fin is.
"That's my shark therapist", says. Squiddy.
"Electro-Shark Therapy", grins the stranger, holding up an eel...

A man walks into a large country pub early one evening; at first he can find nobody to serve him until he hears noises coming from behind the bar. He peers over and sees a barman and barmaid making passionate love
Disgusted, he heads into the lounge where he finds the governor and another barmaid making 'The Beast With Two Backs' on the pool table
In a final attempt to get served, he goes into the restaurant area and sees the missus and a waiter following what is obviously the favourite local occupation on a table.
He storms out into the street, only to find two dogs locked together in the throes of copulation.
He pickes them up, carries them into the pub, plonks them on the counter and shouts; "Your sign's fallen down".

A knight enters, without making a sound.

I am pretty sure it could not have been Peter Knight then. He would have been heard making marvelous music. This strangely pulls 2 themes together

His long association with the folk-rockers had included a spell of
mid-Seventies moonlighting as a secret member of novelty pop group The Wombles — based on the children’s book and TV characters created by Elisabeth Beresford — who notched up a string of top 10 singles and albums.

This led to Knight appearing on Top of the Pops in the guise of Great Uncle Bulgaria alongside fellow Steeleye Span members Rick Kemp and Bob Johnson.


The Gnome falls off his stool as the cosmic consciousness of the tavern takes hold.

Bur Mmario is right. As many years as we have been chronicling events here in the tavern, we've mentioned many different features of the building, and I doubt that it would be box shaped. In fact, someone ought to go back through all the years of tavern threads and make a blueprint, except that it would probably be invalid by next year. Hell, Injustice added a bell tower complete with hunchback this year for the sake, of making a joke. We have a time tunnel and a direct tunnel, now sealed, leading into the Mudcat Recovery Ward. We have magical back doors, one permanently leading to a beach and others leading somewhere different every year, including The Yellow Brick Road, down which Liz The Squeak and her black cat once ventured.

There's an alley with an alley gate for the alligator to bring Cajun goodies to be cooked. There's no attic or basement, but I suppose it's just a matter of time. We've had holes in the roof that always get repaired somehow by the next gathering. I'm sure I missed a lot of stuff

Coming out of the washing machine strangely refreshed, Rap joins the several chori over by the NNE wall, and look out the window at the Lawn Moor.

"Come on, fellows! Let's cheer him up" says Rap, leading the group out the sliding French door that leads to the patio under the banyon tree.

Looking inquiringly at Teresa Terrific, Rap starts with ( it being the most romantic song he knows)

"I hold your hand in mine, dear,
I press it to my lips.
I take a healthy bite
From your dainty fingertips.

My joy would be complete, dear,
If you were only here,
But still I keep your hand
As a precious souvenir."



Continuing to leher, he then sings (accompanied by the assembled chori in 32 part harmony)

Christmas time is here, by golly,
Disapproval would be folly,
Deck the halls with hunks of holly,
Fill the cup and don't say "when."
Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens,
Mix the punch, drag out the Dickens,
Even though the prospect sickens,
Brother, here we go again.

On Christmas day you can't get sore,
Your fellow man you must adore,
There's time to rob him all the more
The other three hundred and sixty-four.

Relations, sparing no expense'll
Send some useless old utensil,
Or a matching pen and pencil.
"just the thing I need! how nice!"
It doesn't matter how sincere it
Is, nor how heartfelt the spirit,
Sentiment will not endear it,
What's important is the price.

Hark the herald tribune sings,
Advertising wondrous things.
God rest ye merry, merchants,
May you make the yuletide pay.
Angels we have heard on high
Tell us to go out and buy!

So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
Hail our dear old friend Kris Kringle,
Driving his wombats across the sky.
Don't stand underneath when they fly by."

Carole and her friends Con and "Highway Pat" tired from seeking demeaning seasonal work as Mall Elves and Garden Gnomes*, they thought they might be able to score some free grub. They are still dressed in Swiss hats and Leiderhosen fresh from a low=paying Mall gig, posing as yodelers from the Troll-ean Alps. Mmario tells them that the choir is on break, so they can sing for their for awhole and then "Alp themselves". They start off with their signature Swiss version of "Deck The Halls" (sung earlier by some shantymen as "Haul The Decks"). Most people applaud, except for DtG, who has never liked their kind......

---------technical digression:

Wootz steel originated in India. There are several ancient Tamil, Telugu, Greek, Chinese and Roman literary references to high carbon Indian steel since the time of Alexander's India campaign. The crucible steel production process started in the 6th century BC, at production sites of Kodumanal in Tamil Nadu, Golconda in Telangana, Karnataka and Sri Lanka and exported globally; the Tamils of the Chera Dynasty producing what was termed the finest steel in the world, i.e. Seric Iron to the Romans, Egyptians, Chinese and Arabs by 500 BC.

A 200 BC Tamil trade guild in Tissamaharama, in the South East of Sri Lanka, brought with them some of the oldest iron and steel artifacts and production processes to the island from the classical period. The Arabs introduced the South Indian/Sri Lankan wootz steel to Damascus, where an industry developed for making weapons of this steel. The 12th century Arab traveler Edrisi mentioned the "Hinduwani" or Indian steel as the best in the world.

Wootz is characterized by a pattern caused by bands of clustered Fe
3C particles made of microsegregation of low levels of carbide-forming elements. The presence of cementite nanowires, and carbon nanotubes has been identified by Peter Paufler of TU Dresden in the microstructure of wootz steel. There is a possibility of an abundance of ultrahard metallic carbides in the steel matrix precipitating out in bands. Wootz swords, especially Damascus blades, were renowned for their sharpness and toughness.

The Oily Boid, freshly rescued from a pipeline spill, takes one look at the size of the wyrm, turns around and heads back to its home to go back to sleep.....


The alligator brings the wyrm a bottle of Mescal and and a straw, supposedly so it can free a relative at the bottom of the bottle.....



The gibbon MC of the Hairy Simian Chorale steps up to the mic and proclaims "Alright, everybody, we've got a special guest. Please give a worm welcome to our old friend LAILY"!
After a round of applause and a long pull at the straw, Laily is backed by the group on a version of the old Percy Sledge hit, "Wyrm And Tender Love". More applause, after which he heads for the Serpent's Quarters.....

Teresa Terrific explains to Severn, "So far in my short sweet life, I've been crowned Miss Judgement by a judiciary committee, Miss Calculation by the Society For Mathematics Professors, Miss Direction for Google Maps and a whole lot more. I've won the Miss Alaneous crown for five years straight. I have no more room on my mantle piece. for any more trophies. You say you're 69 years old and have no money, so are YOU to be considered a trophy?"
Hell, a lot of the time, they even leave out the letter space between the "a" and the "t", but I'm a good man for all that...."
"Usually, if I wanted to leave with something somewhat battered and crispy, I'd be talking about carryout chicken or fish, but step over here for a well deserved birthday present. Don't get any ideas, because, believe it of not, I'n still a virgin......
Severn thinks that whether she's a revised stranded virgin or under the protection of King James, she's still Good News For Modern Man......

The Siamese cats hiss at the wyrm and start singing ("if you can call it that", grumbles the wombat):

"Slime little sloe wyrm, slimmer, slimmer...."

The wombat grabs both of the cats, ties their tails together in a triple knot, swings them around by their joined tails over his head a few times and finally lets fly with them as hard as he can. With a horrible shriek (though actually more on key than their singing), they fly out the open doorway to the beach, which had been somewhat enlarged by the departing rhino, and way out over the ocean so far that we can't even hear the splash.

After a long and lingering pre-, birthday kiss from Teresa that he'd been hoping would last clear into his birthday, Severn is grinning from ear to ear.
"Thank you, O kind and beautiful lady" he tells her. "I've always maintained that every kiss tells a story, though some, alas, can be expressed in a single punctuation mark, but if you ever want to collaborate on creating the Great American Novel, I'm game, and always in season."
"Let's. Just leave it as a very sweet memory" she replied. Unnoticed, she pulls down the mistletoe and disposes it in a nearby receptacle.

Looking at the wombat, Rap notices "He has no way to tie knots!"

Tech aside:
----------------------------------------------------------
Diprotodon superficially resembled a rhinoceros without a horn. Its feet turned inwards like a wombat’s, giving it a pigeon-toed appearance. It had strong claws on the front feet and its pouch opening faced backwards. Footprints of its feet have been found showing a covering of hair which indicates it had a coat similar to a modern wombat.

....and making up new verses.


A lot of these pairs of Siamese cats were the real article. Two heads, two tails, four legs and joined together at the hip.

Severn, who doesn't play an instrument, had grabbed a guitar and was flailing away, because it all wasn't really even close enough for Folk Music anyway. He motions to gnu and whispers in his ear and old battered classical guitars were passed around to whoever wanted them, everybody banging away as violently as possible until strings start breaking right and left. meanwhile, at gnu's instructions, Sandre and Mrrzy roll out a hamper of ill-used, battered tennis and badminton rackets. Mmario brings out a plastic tub of carving utensils from the kitchen...
Sandra declares over a bullhorn that our first New Year's Resolution is to make repairs on all this stuff and get down to some serious restringing, passing out knives to humans and gibbons.

"the hunchback in the bell tower,"
A group of tourists visiting Notre Dame in Paris were being taken around the bell tower by a guide when a hunch-backed man ran in, walked over to the giant bell and head-butted it
Despite its massive size, the bell swung up on its pivot then back down again, hitting the hunchback full in the face, and sending him staggering across the tower, over the parapet and down into the street below.
"Who on earth was that?" asked one of the tourists
"I don't know", replied the guide, "but his face rings a bell"

Amazed to find this thread still going. I find myself, to my bemusement, half agreeing with beardedbruce. A Diprotodon was not a giant wombat. It was as closely related to wombats as kangaroos are. Modern consensus is that vombatidae diverged from diprotodontotidae around 30 million years ago. There were giant wombats, they are called things like Phascolonus and Ramasayia. Or would have been if they were still around. Sorry to be a pedant. And I have no idea what a Phascolonus would say if it walked into a tavern. If it ever would, I very rarely hear the word "tavern" when I am in Australia. Pub, or Hotel, yes. So it might ask if there was a room available. It might be disappointed though, as hotels in Australia do not always offer accommodation.

About wombats being able to fly, apparently the phenomenon has been observed by the always reliable Peter Stampfel, a clear head if there ever was one, and later endorsed by this song having been recorded by Dave Van Ronk, as occurring around someplace in the American West called Random Canyon:

"Take me back to Random Canyon where the gryphon's always riffin',
And the unicorn gets horny in the spring.
Where the crystal coyote calls over sleepy garden walls,
And the wireless wombat wanders on the wing,
And the wireless wombat wanders on the wing......"


Who could doubt the likes of those two?......

A truck from a local contractor with Seth Poole & Co. painted on the side pulls to perform the scheduled maintenance and cleaning of the Jello Pit and reports in to Mmario and the alligator, who handle the till, ('til someone tells them otherwise).
Don't you folks EVER go home? We've got work we're s'posed to do, and this year, it looks like more than usual to set this place right. The good news is that we DO do walls, you all, and we just happen to be having a sale. I thought we'd be having to take on extra help, but some guy named Les asked for a job, and we took him on. There's a second truck coming in that will have a load of Army Surplus survival food.......

(Mmario shudders and makes the sign if the cross with his two index fingers)

.....for ol' Semi-modo up in the bell tower. Once you all 'ceptin' him and the Squid family are oughtta here, it should take about a week or so, and they get to have a beach vacation......Just sign here...."

The pen won't write....

"Mrs. Squid! Billy! One of you all please get over here for a second, as I need some ink".....

Most of the guys at one time or other have offered to give Teresa Terrific a ride home, but she said she'd rather jog.
"What's that out in the beach?" she cries in alarm, and while everyone checks it out, she zips on out of the door and is gone before anyone can try to follow her home.....

The ride home applies to anybody who didn't show up from Down Under", says Severn. It turns out that everyune was covered, excepting Teresa, who'd seemed to prefer it that way. Maybe some year, she'll become a re-nude aquaintence.....

The tree is bare, Mama squid having gotten her mischievous offspring to un-decorate and redistribute items to their owners. There's very little for the Lost & Found this year, the most interesting thing being some huge glasses with lenses as thick as TWO Cike bottles that must've belonged to the rhino....

Having bid all a farewell, Severn leaves before somebody tries to outbid him.
"And to think I had to turn around and come back a second time after first finding the place empty", he muses to himself. ....
And they heard him exclaim as he drive out of sight,

History note: ------------------------------------------------------

Epiphone began in 1873, in Smyrna, Ottoman Empire (now Izmir, Turkey), where Greek founder Anastasios Stathopoulos made his own fiddles and lutes (oud, laouto). Stathopoulo moved to the United States in 1903 and continued to make his original instruments, as well as mandolins, from Long Island City in Queens, New York. Anastasios died in 1915, and his son, Epaminondas ("Epi"), took over. After two years, the company became known as The House of Stathopoulo. Just after the end of World War I, the company started to make banjos. The company produced its recording line of banjos in 1924 and, four years later, took on the name of the Epiphone Banjo Company. It produced its first guitars in 1928. After Epi died in 1943, control of the company went to his brothers, Orphie and Frixo. In 1951, a four-month-long strike forced a relocation of Epiphone from New York City to Philadelphia. In 1957 the company was acquired by CMI who also owned Gibson, Lowrey, Selmer and others.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

I have more EKO instruments than Epiphones, but I have not yet figured out what a ekophany would be like ( a kakophony?)

Here's the follow up to your joke:

Soon after the demise of the hunchback's untimely (if right to the second) demise, a man comes to the cathedral and inquires about the job,saying that the hunchback had been his sibling and he'd be willing to work for just food and board to be able to carry on his late brother's life's work. Reluctantly, reminding the man of the dangers involved, the fellow is given the job. Things go well for awhile, until one day, he repeated the error of his predecessor and met the same fate.

The kitchen staff gather a few that washed up on the lower decks, anticipating tomorrow's Special Of The Day In the ship's game room, all the Pinball machines tilt, the pool balls scramble for the nearest pockets as if by choice, stout coffee mugs and food filled plates move across the table, bowls of oatmeal start quaking and somewhat more unstable long stemmed wine glasses topple over. Those whose stomachs were unsettled by the ship's exta movement, stay away from the rails and wisely head for sinks and bathrooms.

Setting the boat adrift and heading to Houston Donuel is planning to pilot the D Drive that was incidentally engineered by bearded bruce in a black compartmentalized program. The craft is stored in the 8 story vacuum chamber. A letter explaining that the whistle blowing allegations are all untrue and the truth is beyond the "you can't make this stuff up" dimension. "It is true I am an illegal immigrant" !:...!   

Severn I'm glad you have access to a star run about but the D drive is unlike any craft ever devised even by species 5 billion years ahead of Earth.
Briefly, the D Drive does not use energy to push, warp, tunnel or jump.
It removes a dimension of energy which frees it from time that makes the concept of acceleration meaningless. Unfortunately it also eliminates the concept of navigation. By systematically borrowing the energy of the eliminated d dimension it can roughly eliminate the d Dimension ahead and cover distances beyond the known universe.
Or as Donuel calls it, home. If it were not for the Coltan on Earth he would not have landed here by chance and stayed so long.

Now as long as Hurricane Harvey has not damaged the vacuum building the only trace of his escape will be a localized time anomaly.

Mrrzy nearing the end of his Uber ride home in the rain wondered why they made such a big deal about the toy Phaser he rented on the cruise but lost.

By transmogrifying 3d space into its anti space counter part, where the property of antispace allows adjacent access to any point in space and bypasses time in traveling. Reintroducing 3D space is the tricky part and what makes navigation relatively uncertain. There are no star maps.
That's how I ended up on Earth instead of Rohingya. Galactic drift had shifted 20 parsecs in the last few moments of spacial reintegration.
Only in those last few moments does one sense thrilling FTL speed when you can see both sides of objects appear to whiz by. Then for a handful of seconds you are like a neutrino able to pass through 3D objects and space.

When standard space is achieved you shut down d drive and rely entirely on gravity balance drive. Slowing takes longer in empty space but it is safer. You just hope it won't take a year.

But wait! The warming oven doors are open, and there are no crumpets inside! In the distance can be heard feline sniggering as all the Siamese cats march briskly toward the docked cruise ship, small rucksacks on their backs bulging with stolen crumpets. Behind walk the old lady and the African, rather full of delicious crumpets and feeling a bit drowsy.
The ship heads out across the ocean, its hold stuffed full of lovely butter in special refrigerated storerooms.
Sounds of snoring emanate from one of the portholes.
The Crumpet Pirate Ship toots a cheeky farewell as it disappears over the horizon.
But it may return another time...

SmokeyPokey (the little traitor!) has stayed behind, tempted by the offer of delicious grub. And the stowaway was actually Donuel's pre-programmed robot, built to resemble a normal-sized wombat. It had been smuggled aboard to interfere with the Crumpet Detector and guard the illicit Fentanyl.   
The African man chucks it overboard, having re-programmed it to attach a small drone to SmokeyPokey, who is soon whizzing towards the Pirate ship, scowling angrily.
