   I was cleaning up the spilled trash and I was walking down the hill to pick up the last of it and my left foot slipped out from under me and my right knee folded up and tore my patella tendon. Had surgery yesterday to have it fixed. Owie. 

We’re wishing Rabbi a speedy pain-free recovery.

‘Fireball’ Pfeffer Sets Head Ablaze

Gerard Send Beer2

No, it wasn’t a cigar explosion.  Gerard ‘Fireball’ Pfeffer spent part of New Year’s Eve at the hospital after an incident at his place on Lewis & Clark.  Apparently his bonfire making skills leave something to be desired. Where’s Ranger Rick when you need him? 

Fireball wasn’t satisfied with his arsonistic skills in making a bonfire. The fire was petering out and the always helpful Fireball had the brilliant idea to add an accelerant to the bonfire to coax it along.  Accelerant of choice: gasoline.  Fireball’s reflexes weren’t as good as they were when he was a younger man, so guess what happened?

POOF!  While it was way too late to burn his hair off it did scorch his head a bit.  He drove himself to a hospital near his home in St. Peters where he was treated for his injuries.  He is expected to make a full recovery. 

Stay tuned for more Adventures of Fireball Pfeffer!

Gluttons Against Humanity – Friday, November 27

Humanity cardThe Gluttons typically hold an event on the weekend after Thanksgiving.  Years ago it was the Toilet Bowl Football game.  But as the years passed and the bodies aged we digressed into less physical endeavors. For several years we spent the Friday after Thanksgiving bowling at the Corner Bar.  Well, we forgot to reserve the date and the place isn’t available this weekend. 

So, we’ve decided to hold another Gluttons Against Humanity game night on Friday, November 27th. If you’re not familiar with the game, it’s described as a “game for horrible people”.  It’s very inappropriate in language and subject matter.  If you’re easily offended you might want to sit this one out. 

Play begins at 7:27 pm sharp.  BYOB and a snack to share. No Kids.
