    "Hello boys and girls!

    It's Another show of Hoppy and Sibelieus

    Cue Finlandia and 3.2.1.... adjust volume.. try not and think of, Darth Vader.. (I dare You)

    Todays' question comes from GL out West on the coast..

    Say Hi Everyone!

    Hi HI hi Hola! and sixty other languages all chime in.... wahooooo!

    (The crowd continues on with its cheers and whistles and Love sending until the stage manager brings his hand across his neck... without -knife this time. )

    And not just out there to the Left coast but let's send that love Everywhere ....

    "Right ?"

    (More claps and applause, whistles and hoots) because they all know that Governor Nixon ( any relation to the crook?) MO. has declared a State of Emergency, this morning, in a pre-emptive move (read - war against terror ism), occurring right over THERE!

    The audience looks left quickly ( due to instructions to "LOOK OVER THERE_ QUICKLY) as a BIG Shadow skirts the studio light, like a cockroach in a lower East side rent controlled walk-up tenement kitchen, but its only the police state trying to still make you feel safe as it learns new and exciting stealth tactics and activities in Hot topic places like Ferguson MO. (remember Boston?)

    ohhhh, back to the showwwww

    So the big question is.... One.

    Would you rather hear the story of the two boys from New Jersey going hunting with a double barreled shot guns In search of lobsters in southern Nova Scotia?



    A story about a Family and how they were Frozen in Time ( also takes place in Nova Scotia) and for all I know may be still frozen in time.? and place.. still Nova Scotia...

    I'm going to go chop wood for a little while, so You all call in and make the choice..

    ohhh, I have ice to remove from the deck and steps too, so callllll right in and we will tabulate the selections during the next commercial break!

    Oh, wait a minute, looks like Three choices.... silly me..The producer is rolling his eyes and throwing up his hands...

    pulling hair will follow , then curses and threats... but don't worry, I 'll check his meds...

    He gets sooooo touchy when i go offffff script... geeeeez louissse!

    He's gonna have an attack some day.. maybe his heart , huh, wouldn't that be sumptin?

    ok then... well the phone lines are OPEN and while you all make up your minds about the THREEEE stories, not Two,, I, we will see if I can get the crowd ( noise of approval) to come outside and carry some firewood for the studio's heat...
    Ok phones are open.........

    Imagine I was just tapping the inside of your laptop/computer screen/I pad/Kindle/ Siri phone/ mp3 palyer ( what is that, anyway?) or even your radio ( with out a screen) giving you the thumbs up signs and showing you all the wood that still needs cutting while the camera also pans my cat... I am holding up a nonexistant watch face that is Not on my arm, even though I am pointing to it RIGHT NOW.. in an attempt to stimulate your interest enough so you will "CAll IN to cb and VOTE for one of the two stor..- No, Three... Three stories you would like to hear today....

    ok, i am going now.. be back later and see how many many many loves come in for the Lobster, the family or the police nazi pressure story.... YOUR CHOICE>>> 1 or 2 or 3..

    I know which ONE I would choose but I bet you TWO wont guess
    ok gotta go three,, no i mean cut trees..
    Are we on commercial yet?

    hoppy and Sibelius...
