That's certainly true. Do you think it's too much?

Heh, no, I think I can keep up.

Will it affect my enjoyment of the log if I have no clue what those Simpsons episodes are?

Yes because this update is just the players going: "I really like those Simpsons episodes and BrewersFuzz will most likely die alone.

Sorry that this one wont be such a crowd pleaser for you, but it's imperative to the storyline.

Edit: the serious answer to this question is "no" btw

There's a new poll btw, so cast a vote and drop a reply if you feel that your vote warrants an explanation for some reason.

Player Update

April 1st, 2015 9:31 AM Kennedy's Apartment

Chris Kennedy woke up from a deep sleep on his least favorite day of the year. One that he always forgot existed, until he found out the hard way. Every. Year. He checked the news on his computer, completely oblivious as to what day it was. This is when he stumbled upon something interesting.

CHRIS: Holy. Shit. Brian get in here! N*SYNC is gonna do a one time only reunion concert, right here in Scranton!

BRIAN: Doesn't that seem a little too good to be true?

CHRIS: Well it says here on the website-wait what day is today?

BRIAN: April 1st.

CHRIS: God dammit.

BRIAN: Well I've got something that is sure to cheer you up! Illegal drugs!

CHRIS: No way Brian. Not after last time.

BRIAN: Come on, the whole team's doing it. In fact they should be over soon. And besides I already laced your coffee with it.

Chris immediately spat out his coffee, but it was too late. He was already feeling woozy.

BRIAN: Ohhhh yeaah. This shit's called Benzocycline Hydroxide, or it's street name, War Pigs. The ground rules are as follows, this is a synthetic, psychedelic drug. So if the chance arises and you're near a window and think you can fly, don't. This will takes us on three "trips" if you will, all shared with the people around us also under the influence of the drug. So yeah, I hope your schedule's clear.

The other players arrived, all having popped some War Pigs earlier. The first trip was just about ready to kick in.

The Freaky Friday

The first trip had kicked in and have all the players the impression that they had switched bodies somehow.

Pablo had switched with Mick, John had switched with Azul, Paul with WildThing, Brian with Yu Dharvish for some reason and Kennedy with Mark.

This could get confusing.

CHRIS: Ah god, why does my arm hurt so bad? Mark what does this bionic arm even do?

MARK: Everything except make my arm feel better. Hands off all those buttons!

YU: Why the hell did I even come here? This beard is so freakin' scratchy! I'm shaving it.

BRIAN: No! Or else I'm getting a tattoo of an octopus on my shoulder!

JOHN: Hey! I will not stand here as octopi are objectified on people's shoulders. If you do that then I'll dye Azul's hair a normal color.

AZUL: If you do that, I'll cut off your dick!

It was an actual good ol' Mexican standoff between the players with their bodies on the line. It was only interrupted with a keen observation from Mick.

MICK: Speaking of dicks... We're gonna have to piss eventually. Which means we'll have to see each other's junk.

PAUL: Or we could just piss our pants.

PABLO: Hey, that's a great idea actually!

WILDTHING: No way are you pissing my pants, Paul! I just bought those the other day! I hereby give you permission to urinate with my junk should the situation arise.

PAUL: No way am I looking anywhere below the belt. You'll just have to buy new pants.

CHRIS: If I may, my mother just got those jeans for me Mark. So please don't piss in them. I think we should have a vote on this rule.

The boys voted on their pants pissing policy as the second trip started up.

April 1st, 2015 10:22 AM The Sgt. Pepper Residence

The manager of the Scranton Stranglers was making some last minute preparations before Opening Day which was now just two days away. As he meticulously plotted out the Stranglers' strategy on a big baseball diamond hung on the wall which looked like something that belonged in the War Room at the Pentagon, he received a phone call from the team president.

JOEY: Hey, sarge. We really need you down at the stadium, like, right now.

SGT PEPPER: What the hell's going on?

JOEY: You're going to have to see this for yourself.

Pepper raced over to Panpaka Park to find Joey and Bryn waiting outside of the now dilapidated stadium. They were look up at the defaced sign that once read "Home of the Scranton Stranglers"

SGT PEPPER: What the hell happened here?

BRYN: Let's take a look inside and find out.

They entered the stadium to find something that looked almost post-apocalyptic. Interspersed throughout the field were garbage can fires with hordes of disheveled looking people all around them.

JOEY: Looks like the city's homeless have used this place as their home while we were gone.

BRYN: I don't know about that. They just look like people who lost big at the Casino out in right-center.

Bryn was correct. The casino remained open while the Stranglers were out west, and when people lost all their winnings, they drunkenly stumbled out onto the baseball field and lived there until they could get back on their feet.

PEPPER: Shit... doesn't this city have any better use for the field than...whatever the hell this is? Like, concerts or something.

JOEY: Who would book a show in Scranton?

BRYN: Doesn't matter. We need to get this place somewhat cleaned up before the pep rally today. And where the hell are the players?

April 1st, 2015 11:07 AM Somewhere in Scranton

The players were on a different frequency, man.

CHRIS: Brian, do you think we got a little too high maybe?

BRIAN: Ooh yeaah

MARK: Shit, guys we have to be at the ballpark in an hour for the pep rally.

JOHN: But we're *(censored)* up! There's no way we can go.

BRIAN: Wait! I know how we can sober up quick! Follow me!

But just then, the War Pigs took a dangerous affect on Brian and he collapsed.

CHRIS: ohh shit no. Did he just OD?

PABLO: How the hell are we gonna find out how to sober up now?!

MARK: We'll have to go into his mind.

PAUL: You can do that?

WILDTHING: We're gonna have to keep him alive if we wanna go into his mind. And I know just the guy who can help us!

The Stranglers all piled into the van as WildThing argued on the phone with his friend.

WILDTHING: Look, man I can't bring him anywhere else!... He can't die he's a very important person!.. I'll be there in a minute!

WildThing sped in to a trailer park, narrowly avoiding crashing into his buddy's trailer. A drug dealer that resembled Kurt Cobain stormed out.

DRUG DEALER: Hey what the *(censored)* man I told you not to bring him here!!

WILDTHING: Do you know who this guy is, Geoff? He's the closer for the Scranton Stranglers. And if he dies, we all die.

CHRIS: That's not true, but could you please fix our friend?

GEOFF: Fine. But only because you asked nicely.

Geoff went back into his trailer and returned with an adrenaline shot. Luckily he knew how to administer it, as he'd done this many times before.

BRIAN: *gasping*

Brian fainted before he could say a word, but he was alive and it was time for the Stranglers to enter his mind.

PABLO: Gee, thanks Geoff!

GEOFF: Any time guys! Here have a drug!

Geoff and the players went their separate ways as Mark figured out a game plan.

MARK: Alright, gentleman. We are about to go where no man has gone before for good reason. Brian Wilson's mind.

TO BE CONTINUED

My client approves of this, Zumi. He will hang it up in his home above the mantle.
